The end of another busy week, this time, I had the pleasure of filming Niamh and Steven’s Keavil House wedding day at Keavil House Hotel, Dunfermline, Fife.
This was my first ever Keavil House wedding. What a great venue for a wedding, particularly on another rain-sodden ‘Scottish summer’ day! Keavil House has a massive main hall which is where wedding ceremonies are held. I love the layout of this room, as it makes it very easy for me to film a wedding. There’s plenty of space to accommodate guests, and ample room for me to set up a couple of tripods without feeling space is tight. Perfect!
The event was actually a wedding blessing, as Niamh and Steven were recently married in Seychelles. So Saturday was a wonderful gathering of family and friends who weren’t able to attend the wedding in Seychelles. Niamh and Steven had a decent number of guests at their wedding, with people travelling from across the world. A truly cosmopolitan and international celebration.
And what a relaxed and fun day it was! It really was great fun to be there filming everyone enjoying themselves.
I filmed the blessing, the speeches and the first dances with two full hi-definition video cameras. For the dances I mounted one camera on my Steadicam rig, ensuring some super smooth cinematic shots of the newly-weds and guests on the dance floor! The evening entertainment was provided by local band ‘Wildcard’. These guys are great. Though it’s the third wedding I’ve seen them at in a couple of months. I’m beginning to think they’re stalking me!
Congratulations to Niamh and Steven, thank you so much for allowing me to film such a wonderful day!
