This Beautiful Leez Priory wedding video was shot during the busy summer months at one of Essex’s most stunning venues. Leez Priory is a Tudor Manor House and is a three-time winner of Wedding Ideas Magazine ‘Best Wedding Venue’, so you can undestand how it remains one of the most sought-after wedding venues in the country. It is set in 40 acres of parkland, with a sweeping driveway, manicured lawns and lakes, Leez Priory is a veritable paradise for us filmmakers to get creative and shoot some of the beauty and ambiance of this venue.
Ceremonies are normally conducted in the historical Tower, which stands adjacent to the Main House, or outside beneath the carriageway for a truly unique setting on warmer days. I’m pleased to say that on this day we were beneath the carriageway.

I think its natural to feel a little nervous when we have an outdoor ceremony after all we do live in the UK and that means there is a good chance of rain most of the time. This particular day though there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and it was as if we were shooting in the Caribbean. In the fact my only concern was that I had forgotten the factor 20 sunscreen! That aside outdoor ceremonies do present a few challenges of there own but as consummate professionals I always say, let us worry about that and you get on with enjoying the day.

On with the celebrations
Check out the intro to the highlight because it contains a quite funny but nervous exchange during the vows. I always tend to find couples are either so emotional they will just laugh or cry, there tends to be no middle ground. Emma and Tony’s exchange was so cool considering how long they had been together they had a calm disposition that just allowed things to flow with no awkward moments. As Tony voiced the words “Don’t laugh” I could see Emma was powerless to control that child like giggle that we’ve all experienced at one time or another. A memorable moment for sure and one that would have disappeared forever had they not had the foresight to include a wedding video.

Evening Wedding Celebrations
After the first dance which was held outside the guests relaxed and were treated to a spectacular firework display. It kind of finishes of the day nicely and seeing the day turn to night and things liven with fireworks is pretty cool. I have to give it to Emma & Tony they really pushed the boat out on their wedding and thought of everything, some nice touches and the fact that their children were there to enjoy it was even more cool. Something they can look back on for many years. A great end to a perfect day.

It was great to be asked to do conference photography & video covering this years ENYGF conference and it was always going to be a hectic schedule. They chose the Victoria Warehouse as the venue for the 2017 conference which is an awesome location. After research they chose us to cover the conference photography & video. The venue has a huge expanse and is often used for large concerts, wedding and other similar events. The ENYGF had asked us to provide photo and video coverage to showcase their conference and promote future events. Considering the size of the venue and also the challenges of extreme low light as well as colour casting this wasn’t such an easy task. The venue is quite notorious for its large capacity but also for its many rooms on different levels and so it was important we had planned to capture everything and really do the event justice by producing a great series of images.

A Visit to the Science Museum
One of the trips organised by the ENYGF was to the Museum of Science & Industry This was such a cool place and allowed all the attendees a little bit of R & R after a pretty hectic schedule. One of Manchesters ‘must see’ places the venue have a number of tours and also host parties where you can explore the surroundings take lots of pictures. As we were covering the conference photography & video aspect it was important we made it to these events. As this was organised on an evening it was a real talking point for the attendees the following day and was definable one of the highlights.

Final delivery and sign off
Over the few days that we filmed at the ENYGF as you can imagine we had a huge archive of images and video. We delivered this by way of the cloud and gave them access to all the footage requested as well as cut this snappy little trailer for them to us to promote future events. With over 1000 images we also made these available across a number of platforms as well as having some for social media during the event itself. The ENYGF were a great team to work with and really put on a spectacular final show which everyone enjoyed.

We had such a great time shooting for Airofin, such a great brand and quite a unique clothing line. Whether you’re preparing for a triathlon or an Ironman, you cant help but have noticed that this kit is worn by numerous top athletes. The Airofin Sportswear Brand has a real mark of quality and it was so important for us to re-enforce this quality in the film we put together for them. We had some great locations put together and shot over two days we really wanted the Airofin brand to shine.

Unique Visual Elements
One of the key factors in creating that desire for a product is highlighting certain visual elements. With the Airofin Sportswear Brand we really like the cooler tones used in the design and we emulated this throughout the film. With sportwear especially outdoor sportswear its also important to connect the brand to a suitable environment. With the brands association with triathlon events we opted to showcase these aspects in the video as well as cross training. Fortunately we had several great locations in and around Manchester to choose from so it was just a matter of getting the right weather for fresh but bright look.
Shooting in Manchester allowed us to choose some great location
Timescale for this production
As with all productions time is of the essence and we shot the two days over the course of three weeks. Our shooting schedule was subject to location, actors availability and weather dependent so we certain elements are beyond control. We did however deliver a short 30 second edit after only one day shooting which the client really loved and it also helped us to agree the look we would go for in the final edit. In conclusion it was a great project to be involved and we would love to continue to work with the sportwear sector so if you have any similar project please get in touch. We at Cedar House Productions would love to hear from you regardless of how big or small your project is, we also have a great deal of experience working with all industry sectors and regularly travel great distances.
