I’ve just been filming another brilliant The Vu wedding.
I recently had the pleasure of filming the wedding of Christina and James. They were married at St John’s Parish Church, Bathgate, and held their wedding reception nearby at Bathgate’s top wedding venue The Vu.
This was a multi-camera shoot, with all day coverage from shortly before the ceremony until 10 pm in the evening. The day started about 90 minutes before the wedding ceremony. I filmed shots of the church, both inside and out. Along with shots of the groom and guests arriving, this part of the wedding film will have a music backing track synchronised with the video footage. A great way to begin your wedding film, nicely setting the scene for what’s to come.
After the wedding ceremony, everyone headed across to The Vu for the wedding reception. Photos of the newly-weds, their families and friends were taken with the backdrop of West Lothian. Newly-wed photos were taken on the jetty with Ballecrieff Reservoir the romantic setting. One of the highlights of the day for me was the ceilidh in the evening. Christina and James live in Mallaig and had booked their local ceilidh band to provide the evening entertainment. The band were amazing, easily the best and most original ceilidh band I’ve seen!
Congratulations to Christina and James. What a great wedding day and amazing to see so many guests travelling to Bathgate from Mallaig and the surrounding area.
