Castle Howard Wedding-York Wedding Video


Our 1st Castle Howard wedding was filmed back on a glorious day in July for the wedding of Monica & Rishi (wedding film is at the bottom of the blog post). I had never seen Castle Howard before we turned up there to film, and I was absolutely blown away at what a grand venue it was! There were so many ideas flying through my head of cinematic video shots that I wanted to capture. The day started off with the bride and groom preparations at The Talbot Hotel in Malton, it is only a few miles away from Castle Howard so a great place to get prepared.

On the day, my colleague and I met met Chris from Chris Milner Photography who was there photographing the wedding. It was great working alongside Chris and his colleague on this Castle Howard wedding video, he had some great ideas and captured some great photos. The location shoot in particular worked great from a video perspective as we worked around Chris and jumped in for the shots that we needed, and set up shots for each other to capture. As they say, 2 heads are better than 1!

Chris has kindly allowed me to post some of his wedding photography from the day on this blog, he captured some great shots:

I must also say how great the staff were at this Castle Howard wedding. I got to meet Castle Howard’s wedding co-ordinator Jane Nordli who is also a wedding planning expert. If you are getting married, be sure to check her website out www.jane-nordli.co.uk , she is great at making sure everyone and everything is organised and happens on time, and the thing that stood out the most was just how relaxed she was and how she makes everyone feel at ease. This is certainly what you want on your wedding day when you might be feeling a little nervous.

So, finally onto the wedding video that we produced for Monica & Rishi. Due to the couples’ request we gave this film a cinematic feel along with their music choice (purchased from themusicbed.com). We added some colour grading to add to the feel and used a lot of slow motion. The opening shot is our 1st attempt at some aerial filming with our DJI Phantom Vision drone. I wasn’t able to capture this shot on the day so returned at a later date to make sure I got the shot I needed and that it was right for the film. As the light wasn’t the same as the wedding day it was quite difficult to colour correct it to fit in with the film.

    Rishi and I are absolutely delighted with the films that Ryan has produced. We could not stop smiling when we watched them. In fact, five minutes into the longer film I text Ryan the following: “I’ve decided you are a genius”. I stick by that comment.
    The whole day was captured so well and the editing was perfect. We had a large list of requests and Ryan catered to our needs. Nothing was too much effort.
    Not only are the films fantastic but Ryan is incredibly professional and friendly.
    Thanks Ryan!
