Great to be filming Lisa and Damian’s Macdonald Marine Hotel wedding. Lisa and Damian chose to be married in the beautiful seaside town of North Berwick, East Lothian. The summer had been a bit wet and miserable, so it was brilliant to have one of the sunniest and warmest days of the year so far.
My day began with me filming the Bridal party preparations at the beautiful Macdonald Marine Hotel. This took place in the Honeymoon Suite on the top floor of the hotel. The Honeymoon Suite has spectacular views of the Firth of Forth and North Berwick Law, and is a generously proportioned room. Just as well, as it was a busy room with quite a few girls getting ready in there! Fortunately still plenty of room for me to move around and capture candid shots of the preparations.
After shooting lots of candid shots of hair being done, make-up being applied and, of course, plenty of champagne sipping, I headed over to the nearby Our Lady Star of the Sea church. As this was a two camera video I set one camera up towards the front of the church, the other filming from the balcony at the back.
There were over one hundred guests at the wedding. This really was amazing because nearly everyone present had travelled up from Kent. The guests were ferried from Macdonald Marine Hotel to Our Lady Star of the Sea in an old red London bus.
This short video shows the opening chapter of Lisa and Damian’s Macdonald Marine Hotel wedding video. The newly-weds chose all the music I used when editing their wedding video. Brilliant to be back in North Berwick filming such a lovely couple. I look forward to returning to the Macdonald Marine Hotel for another wedding very soon.
