November 2023 – The was the wedding of Jackie & Tom at Browsholme Hall & Tithe Barn, set in beautiful grounds on the outskirts of Clitheroe.
Just 3 short years after Tom’s romantic proposal they finally made it and the wedding happened at this amazing venue in Clitheroe. Despite the time of year the weather was good and spirits were high.
“November 27th 2020 I was sorting the dogs out downstairs, little did I know Tom was setting up the proposal upstairs, he has set up twinkly lights and paper bags with candles spelling marry me, petals on the floor, he called me upstairs and had the bedroom light off telling me it was broken, I went upstairs worried then opened the door to see Tom down on one knee asking me to marry him”
After looking at several venues, when Jackie and Tom visited Browsholme Hall it was no contest. The hall and Tithe Barn is simply the best wedding venue in the area and is such a special venue for any couples’ wedding day.
“I’m very decisive with things like venues, I knew I wanted a venue exclusive to our wedding which ruled out a lot of others, we wanted to do everything in the same place so needed to make sure the venue had a wedding license which ruled out others, the venue is beautiful so made it my first pick to view it and then when we heard twelve do all the catering there we knew it was our venue because twelve restaurant is our date night place.”
Planning a wedding is a big undertaking but Jackie and Tom had a very clear vision of what they wanted for their most special day and no details was overlooked.
“Our colour scheme is dark greens and golds, really want a romantic cosy almost woodland vibe, full of flowers greens and whites, we upped our original budget for flowers from £1000 to £2000 to up our chances of a wedding full of them. I want the guests to be so busy enjoying the day that they couldn’t possibly leave early. We have a Photo Booth to try get as many fun photos of everyone as possible. We’ve got a Sax player coming to play with the DJ to try get everyone up and dancing. We are having some canapés going around before the wedding breakfast and then speeches just before the wedding breakfast about 3:30, wedding breakfast will be cheese soufflé for starters, then chicken in the main followed by sticky toffee pudding. Really want all our guests and each of our families to mingle and get to know each other becoming one big family. We will have blankets as wedding favours so our guest can get wrapped up if they want to go sit outside with the stars at any point.”
From the initial excitement of the bridal preparations in the morning, all the way throughout the day until the absolutely fantastic firework display at the end of the evening, this was a fun packed day and the perfect way for Jackie and Tom to start their married life, the honeymoon however, sounds like it’s going to be a much needed rest!
“We are going to the Maldives the day after our wedding for a week. Big fans of a sunny chilled holiday, especially after the stress of planning a wedding”
Congratulations to Jackie & Tom – now enjoy the film.
Who am I?
Thanks for stopping by. I’m Pete and I’m an established wedding videographer based in the North of England, on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Filming weddings is a passion as well as a job. I am always honoured to be asked to capture a couples’ big day so they can treasure and watch it back for years to come.
Why choose me?
I often ask my couples why they selected me to film their wedding, as opposed to all the other wedding videographers out there. They almost unanimously say it’s because my work has a natural, informal feel while remaining stylish and contemporary. My background in documentary film making means that I like to film events as they happen naturally, taking a discreet approach without trying to force or fake anything.
What’s my approach?
For me, the wedding day is of course about the bride and groom, it is their big day after all. Having said that it’s not ALL about the bride and groom, but it’s also a big day for the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, the ushers, the flower girl, the pageboy, the mums and dads, the brothers and sisters, the cousins, wider family and friends, you can see where I’m going with this. Everybody plays their part and not to forget to mention the suppliers: the dresses, the suits, the cake, the venue, the band, the flowers etc etc. I see it as my job to capture as much of the vibe of the day as possible, and that would not be possible without the participation of everyone mentioned above. I love capturing it all, from the anticipatory bridal preparations, through to the emotional vows, all the way up to guests throwing shapes on a packed dance floor.
Even after 15 years in this business and over 400 weddings under my belt, I still get a thrill at turning up at the venue on the morning of the wedding. Whether that is a vast country estate, or a small village church, I approach every wedding the same. I love to capture your day with the minimal amount of fuss, and to provide a beautifully crafted film that you can watch back for years to come. All the atmosphere, the emotion, and all the laughter and love. It really is a once in a lifetime, unique event that deserves to be beautifully captured.
Every couple and every wedding is different an I love getting to know my couples, hearing their stories and capturing their big day. Each time, the story of your wedding day is completely unique, and I can’t wait to tell yours.
Wherever your wedding is, from a small registry office, quaint village church, country hotel, large marquee or even a grand cathedral, get in touch for prices and to discuss your requirements. If I am free for your date we can arrange a meeting, and I can show you samples of my wedding films and talk you through the process. If you have some questions and just want a chat, then I am more than happy to have a Zoom consultation where you quiz me on any aspect of having a videographer at your wedding, just click on the Contact link at the top or bottom of this page.
