Wedding Videographer Oxfordshire // Sir Charles Napier Inn // Chinnor // Oxfordshire
As much as wedding videographers (and other creatives) go on about how amazing this or that venue is, there are very few that beat the good old Country Pub. As with village church weddings, there's a sense of timelessness, certainty and consistency. People have been doing it for hundreds of years, saying the same or very similar words from the Book of Common Prayer across generations. In the same way, the pub has been there for ages and has been a part of the country landscape. While much of it's local community importance has declined due to the fact a lot of people work how in the city, the fact is the Public House still very much part of the English life.
This was the backdrop of Pam and Alan's wedding. Alan proposed to Pam in the Sir Charles Nappier Inn in Chinnor. This was the village where they also got married and had their reception.
When Pamela first got in touch she was very worried about the presence of a videographer. So much so she didn't want her bridal preparations filmed. During the consultation, we ran through many of the questions brides ask: the film structure, how I shoot, how I choose the music, how I use microphones to capture audio and so on.
The wedding went on brilliantly, though. From the ceremony on to the reception and first dance with a great, well spirited and very light-hearted. The weather held off until people were called in for the reception and we even were granted some sunny spells for the couple shoot. My memory of the day was the carefree atmosphere and great speeches filled with Anglo-Aussie banter.
In the end, I must say I felt relieved. Upon my departure, Pam came out of the dance floor and hugged me saying how professional and low-profile my coverage had been. I left with my heart full ready to fight another day.
