Haselbury Mill is often described as being “probably the most beautiful setting in the South West of England”. We can’t agree more, and we were lucky enough to have the opportunity of filming two weddings at this lovely venue this year.
The wedding venue is made of three stunning listed buildings and the newly built Great Tithe Barn, which is where we filmed Kim and David’s wedding day. Now, something that always puzzled me was the name ‘Great Tithe Barn’. Until recently I wasn’t aware a Tithe barn was a type of barn used in England and Germany in the middle ages and in the United States for storing the Tithes - a tenth of the farm's produce which had to be given to the church. Fact of the day.
Kim and David met at work in London where they shared the same kitchen and would meet daily for breakfast. After whirlwind romance of five and half months, Kim and David decided to leave London and start their new lives in Dubai together. As David says, "this was pretty big step, but when you know, you know, you know". Loved David's speech!
Cinematic Wedding Videography - DJI Ronin-M & Sony A7RII Slow Motion
It was great to finally use our new toy (DJI Ronin-M) to get some slow motion cinematic tracking shots with the Sony A7Rii. It’s very important to not get too caught up with equipment when filming weddings. Weddings are so fast paced and you can easily miss something very special if you’re messing around trying to set up some fancy equipment. However, every once in a while if the opportunity presents itself you can get some stunning shots using gimbals, sliders and drones.
So, yet again we were blessed with another perfect couple and a perfect day to film a wedding video. There are some people in this world who make anyone and everyone smile. They walk into a room and it’s like someone zapped the place with a bolt of energy. Case in point: David and Kim. I would catch myself grinning from ear to ear while editing their film.
