After receiving a months worth of rain in 2 days, a massive effort was required from friends and family to raise the marquee off the sodden ground and ensure our bride & groom didn’t have to issue all of their wedding guests with Gumboots on arrival. After all the hard work was done, the big day finally arrived and was spectacular from start to finish. With a truely intimate ceremony, a stunning bride, amazing food and a groom with the best dance moves, Chris & Amy’s wedding day was the best party ever!

Here’s what Chris & Amy had to say after watching this wedding film for the first time :  “We loved reliving the day all over again. It was such a blur for us on the actual day with so much happening and it was so nice to watch it again and see everyone enjoying themselves on our big day.” – Amy & Chris
