Kelda and Matt were married at the stunning Ellingham Hall at the end of last August. When I first arrived I caught up with Matt and the boys, as they were getting ready up on the top floor. I knew it was going to be an emotional rollercoaster of a day, when Matt shed a tear looking through the photo book Kelda had made for him. Kelda and girls were all totally chilled and it wasn’t long before Kelda’s Dad walked her down the aisle. On seeing Kelda again, Matt began to get emotional. I always think it’s great seeing a lad wearing his heart on his sleeve and I don’t mind admitting I always get a little choked up when that happens. It was great working alongside A Little Less Salt Wedding Films and I really do think our styles compliment each other. We were searching for those little pockets of light, when I discovered a secret door, taking you through into a country lane. We did most of the photos and video there and it worked a treat.
On to the speeches and Kelda started proceedings, it’s always great seeing the bride say a few words and I always say to couples, when it comes to weddings there are no rules! So just do what feels right for you! Kelda’s Dad then did his speech and must have been scouring the attic, to find lots of relics from her childhood to embarrass her with. The best men’s speeches were great, especially the story about stalking a well known Man Utd player to their house for an autograph! Following the meal the brilliant Singing Waiters livened up the guests and had the place jumping! Although the look on Man Utd fan Matt’s face when they played the Blaydon Races, was hilarious! At least Kelda knew the words!
Before the night time proceedings kicked off we were treated to a rendition of Spice girls ‘Wannabe’ by the bridesmaids! Hats off to one of them who was pregnant and hadn’t had a drink all day! The first dance was the awesome Oasis - Slideaway, topped off with confetti canons, it was a real moment and everyone in the place was singing along and dancing by the end! Thanks again for asking me to be a part of your wedding day, it was all kinds of awesome!
