A Classic British Wedding: Oundle Roman Catholic Church and Barton Hall.

How/when did you first meet?

At university, we did the same course but actually met at the union on our first day!

What happened on the day you decided to GET WED?

We were skiing in Austria with friends, Jonny proposed at the top of a mountain in Zauchensee, my favourite ski resort. We were the only ones up at the viewing platform at the top of the women’s downhill run when he got down on one knee, it was absolutely perfect.

How did you go about planning your day? What was your theme/style?

We both have very large families and so we knew our wedding was going to be big in numbers. We wanted to find somewhere that could accommodate us all but that was also a beautiful venue. We just wanted the day to be lots of fun for everyone and dance into the evening with friends and family. I wouldn’t say we necessarily had a theme, we made a lot of things ourselves such as invites, table decorations, favours and so on, which was great fun!

Which suppliers did you use and what was great about them?: Our wedding reception was at Barton Hall which was great, we loved that people could stay in the hotel, it really made it more of a wedding weekend than day! My cousin did the flowers, her company are Foxglove Studio based in Marlow. All their flowers are simply stunning and everyone commented on how beautiful the flowers were on the tables. We used KM photography (a friend of a friend) they were a lovely couple and really captured some lovely moments of the day. Finally, obviously we used Fineshade Films for the wedding video. I teach with Danielle and knowing how amazing she is at media I just knew I had to ask if she would film our day. Danielle was just brilliant and the film she produced for us is just stunning. We love watching it back and remembering how amazing the day was.

What was your favourite part of your day?

Oooh that’s such a tough one, the whole day was more perfect than we could have imagined. Jonny can’t decide on a favourite moment, he says it was all so amazing. For me I loved the car journey from the church to the reception when we could take a few minutes to take it all in just us. One moment that will stay forever with us (and that Danielle managed to capture and start our video with) is the huge cheer from all our guests when we entered the wedding breakfast.

Your wedding day Top Tip please!

It sounds like such a cliche but enjoy every second, when people say the day flies it really and truly does. Oh and dance ... dance lots and just have the best time ever!

What can I say? We have just watched our film for the first time and it is more than words can describe. Our day was such a blur to us both and Fineshade Films did the best job of reliving it all for us. They are the best. They are the most friendly and accommodating team and we couldn't ask for anything more beautiful and well-made than this! We can now treasure our memories for a lifetime and it simply has blown us away. We cant thank you enough. Amazing.


What an amazing job you did for our wedding day. Our photos and video are something we can treasure forever! You were both so welcoming and took on board just what we wanted on the day. Thanks to both of you.


Fineshade Films did an incredible job with our wedding video, we both had tears watching it back. The way they have edited the videos together is simply beautiful, and takes real talent to achieve. On the day, they were great, capturing all the best moments and hopefully enjoying themselves at the same time. I can't recommend them enough, incredible duo who are brilliant at what they do. Thank you so much, we really, really appreciate your work and effort and this stunning video will be with us forever.


Fineshade films are not only very talented they are very nice people. I contacted them in advance of our wedding in 2018 sharing a very expensive film that I loved, Martin was extremely honest with me & took time to understand what I was looking for & also praising the other company’s good work. That for us was true professionalism & honesty; not only did we get a better film, it saved us money. This husband & wife team are very talented & people that you want to see do well. My wedding day was amazing but was made even better for the people I trusted to capture the moments that matter. 


I mean, I love it. I've cried like a baby. Thank you so much. For everything. You were both amazing and we have something to treasure for ever. Can we do it again please?


Amazing. Tears streaming down my face whilst smiling the biggest smile. Richard is currently crying on a digger in the middle of London! Our girls also both cried watching it. I'm going to watch it over, millions and millions of times.


It is absolutely perfect. We absolutely love it and can't thank you enough. It captures the day beautifully and is such a stunning memory to look back on. We're so pleased you picked the audio. The words are perfect. 


OH MY GOD. We are so in love! Thank you so much. I can't stop watching the video and looking at the photos. So happy.

Our parents absolutely loved the film and photos. Once again, thank you.

Tell us all about it!

We want to know all about your day! Let's find out if we're a match made in heaven.
