Ian and Vanessa Askham Hall Wedding


As one of the most exclusive wedding venues in the lake District, Askham Hall never fails to provide the most stunning setting for one of our wedding filming commissions – even in torrential rain!

With a Michelin stared restaurant, luxurious suites and jaw dropping surroundings, Askham Hall delivers a unique wedding experience every time I film there. The weather may not have been kind to us this time but the interior of Askham Hall is so stunning the rain was a small inconvenience.

But forget the weather for a minute and relive the beautiful ceremony at St John Evangelist Church in Plumpton Village, the emotion of their speeches and that stunning choreographed first dance. I could go on but I think it would be better for Vanessa and Ian to tell you in their own words how important their Askham Hall Wedding video was to them and how we approached the filming with the somewhat difficult weather!

It’s so nice to be appreciated and we always try to ensure that our Askham Hall Wedding video productions and the way we are on the day exceeds expectation.

Askham Hall Wedding Video Review

We’ve just had our wedding films back from Mick which has reduced us to tears! To say we are over the moon is an understatement!

We booked Mick many moons ago at the start of 2019 for our then April 2020 date but we all know what happened there! Mick has been absolutely great moving our date four times eventually to October 2021 and we decided to add on Rachel as a second videographer.

We were faced with terrible weather, it rained all day but the footage captured is absolutely incredible and so beautifully put together that the bad weather just enhances the film even more so! Mick and Rachel have captured the essence and flow of the day perfectly including all my little details I put my heart and soul into. It’s so emotional to watch, nothing but happy tears though! Even the music chosen compliments the film perfectly. There is a reason these guys do what they do and they are both top class.

We also had a lot of stressful moments with outside events on our day but Mick has managed to get a lot of footage and missed photo ops that I was sad about not having, especially some moments with my Mum. I now have these for years to come in video format and we will treasure our video forever.

Mick also got some key moments I asked him to which I totally appreciate but for the most part, we barely noticed them being there. So discreet and as a result we have pure natural content. I didn’t actually realise how many different camera angles there were, amazing!

Can’t thank you both enough for what you have created for us despite the challenging conditions and it’s definitely been worth waiting for! I wish we could do it all again, I cry every time I watch it and the memories just come flooding (no pun intended!) back.

If you do one thing, book these guys, you wont regret it!
