Kelmarsh Hall Wedding Videography – Kristina & Andrew


Kristina & Andrew’s Kelmarsh Hall Wedding was one of our highlights of the year.

It was an epic wedding to say the least. Incredible venue, great people, perfect weather, and ended with spectacular fireworks. Kelmarsh Hall is a very special venue and one which we’ve loved capturing weddings at over the past few years. Kelmarsh Hall is a Grade I listed country house built in 1732 surrounded by Grade II* listed gardens.

Kristina & Andrew had their marriage ceremony in the Saloon. The room is resplendent with chandeliers, polished oak floorboards and stunning views across the ornamental lake. A perfect setting for a ceremony. Throughout key parts of the ceremony, Kristina & Andrew had one of their friends play white grand piano. We recorded the audio separately earlier in the day and later used this for the main film. A very personal touch for the film.

For the drinks reception we had so much to film. After the confetti the formal photos were taken. Photography on the day was by friend of the family John Roan. Guests were entertained by Lynden Blades, saxophonist in the Great Hall. And good friend of ours Jamie Doherty of Fine Entertainments was there to wow and amaze guests with his amazing magic.

The wedding breakfast and speeches took place in the magnificent Ballroom. Food and drink was provided by Portfolio Events. For those feeling a bit peckish later in the evening a popcorn machine was available for people to feast on. Evening entertainment was provided by the always superlative Big Bopper. The day was topped off with guests enjoying sparklers and an amazing fireworks display.

We loved filming the day and getting creative with the film editing. We’d love to be back at Kelmarsh Hall so if you’re planning your own wedding there then get in touch.

Here’s what Kristina & Andrew had to say about us…

“My husband & I highly recommend Neon Trifle film. A huge thank you to you guys for creating our epic wedding day film! It’s such a fantastic memory to look back on, and we are SO pleased we chose you to capture our day. You absolutely got it ‘spot on’ and have been a pleasure to work with from start to finish.

If I’m completely honest, at the start of wedding planning hiring a videographer wasn’t the top of my ‘essential supplier’ list, but I am so glad I took the advice from many wedding magazines and friends that this is one thing to not miss out on! Having our day captured in film was absolutely worth the money.

We chose Neon Trifle as we loved their style of filming – we definitely didn’t want a boring or a cheesy wedding film (which I think many tend to be!). Instead, our film is modern, fresh, arty, fun, natural and sincere when it needed to be. It captures so many beautiful moments, some that we missed ourselves on the big day and it’s so lovely to see it all put together as one. So many of our guests commented that they didn’t even realise they were being filmed which has made for beautifully natural footage – exactly how it should be.”

Dodmoor House Wedding Videography – Bernie & David

We love a Dodmoor House Wedding and Bernie & David’s wedding was no exception.

Filming on the day was done by Steve and Toby, working alongside Aaron Collett Photography to capture the day fully. For their wedding Bernie & David made real sure that none of their wedding guests were going to go hungry with the order of the day really centred around food.  Ice creams served from Hetty the vintage ice-cream bike courtesy of Honey Bees during the drinks reception. The wedding breakfast by Lemon Zest. And in the evening fish and chips from The Happy Plaice mobile fish and chip van!

We loved filming Bernie and David’s wedding day. We were blessed with excellent weather on the day. Dodmoor House was looking at its best with lots of colour and blossom. Golden hour gave us some beautiful light for portrait time. The editing of the films was great fun as we had plenty of audio to chose from including from the ceremony, readings and some great speeches, including a joint speech from David & Bernie!  The day finished off with a sparkler guard of honour and 1Entertainments got the party going on the dance floor.

Here’s what Bernie & David had to say,
“Neon Trifle did a brilliant job of our wedding video, we couldn’t have been happier with the finished film.

The edits really captured the essence of the day and the video is something which we will enjoy watching for years to come.

Steve and the team did an excellent job on the day of capturing lots of amazing footage, which they achieved without being obstructive or obtrusive at all – we had fun filming with them and a lot of the time, we complete forgot they were filming us because it was so seamless.

Thanks again for capturing our big day in such a brilliant video!”

We’d love to be back capturing awesome weddings at Dodmoor House so if you’re planning your own big day there then get in touch and see if we’re available to film it for you.


Barton Hall Wedding Videography – Sarah & Alex

Barton Hall is one of the newest wedding venues in Northamptonshire and is a stunning setting for a relaxed and stylish wedding.

Barton Hall is situated on the outskirts of Kettering. It’s just a stone’s throw away from the famous Wicksteed Park.  In fact, from the beautiful lawn area you can see some of the pleasure rides at the park.

A big selling point of the venue is the beautiful 16th century grade I listed Orangery. Perfectly used for the wedding ceremony. The Orangery is a beautiful space and is bathed in gorgeous light – even on a grey day.  On rainy days it also works really well as the location for drinks receptions.  The main hotel is grade II listed with a modern extension. For wedding days it’s used for the wedding breakfast and the evening reception.

One of the other big benefits of Barton Hall is its big open spaces and lush greenery.  It has mature landscaped gardens and plenty of space for wedding guests to enjoy the afternoon and evening drinks receptions.

Sarah and Alex’s wedding took place at the beginning of autumn.  That time of year often serves up some amazing weather and amazing light during the day, but particularly in the evening. For their wedding film, Sarah & Alex had two videographers / camera operators throughout the day. This ensured plenty of footage was captured at all of the key stages.  This was especially important during the ceremony in the Orangery and during the speeches.

Two videographers also meant that during the drinks receptions everything of interest was captured. From the filming of the formal group photos, guests interacting with each other and enjoying the ice creams provided.

Sarah and Alex didn’t miss a trick when it came to the styling of the reception room.  Lots of lovely vintage detail to be found, including family photos and even a typewriter for guests to write well wishes.

As at any wedding, we tagged along when the photographer took the bride and groom for some romantic portrait time. We hover – not literally or sleazily – in the background just filming the bride and groom being themselves during these special moments. The evening autumnal light was particularly spectacular for us on this occasion.  A little bit of exploring beyond the venue’s car park meant that we found some stunning autumn foliage. Perfect to use as a backdrop to some portraiture filming.

The wedding day was rounded off in style with guests forming a guard of honour with sparklers for Sarah & Alex to walk through. Yay, drunk people with fire! A full-on party atmosphere, courtesy of their DJ, followed.  Then a final surprise to Alex and the rest of the guests. Sarah and her bridesmaids had prepared a dance routine for a little bit of extra entertainment.

Many thanks to Sarah & Alex for inviting us along to film their wedding day – we truly had an enjoyable time.

If you are planning your own wedding at Barton Hall then get in touch to see if we’re available to film your big day.


Why Neon Trifle?

Well, why not Neon Trifle?

Having worked as wedding photographers for many years, both individually and together, we thought we’d try our hand at filming weddings.  How hard can it be?

Quite tough it turns out!  But, hugely rewarding and inspiring in equal measure.

After doing a couple of wedding films we decided we needed a more formal offering for brides and grooms looking for wedding videography in Northamptonshire and beyond.

Not wanting this to be simply attached to our existing photography businesses, we opted for the separate entity you see before you today.  The hardest task was coming up with a new name.

Having both opted for the very clever ‘[insert name] Photography’ for our other business, we wanted something a bit abstract, maybe slightly funky, a bit different to stand out from the crowd.  Additionally, whilst we specialise in wedding videography, we didn’t want be specific to that area as we also tackle other sectors like corporate videos.

So, where better to decide on a name than over booze and curry?  Armed with our wives and four lists of ten random words, we set about choosing our favourites and pairing them up.

As you would expect, Neon Trifle stood out and just clicked with us.  Neon is cool, Trifle is the best dessert in the world ever, fact.  So there you have it!  Neon Trifle Film.  If you need a kick-ass wedding film then get in touch to see if we’re available to film your wedding day.
