Why did you want to capture your wedding on video?
It was one of the only things other people had said they regretted not doing for their own wedding. We knew we wanted the day capturing and that a video would be able to capture things in a different way compared to just photographs. Now we have something we can look back on for years to come and show people who weren’t able to make it the day.
Why did you choose Browns Films?
Not living the Norfolk meant we relied heavily on recommendations for suppliers from our venue. As a preferred supplier to Holkham, we were pointed in your direction. After watching other films on social media etc, we knew having Browns Films would be the perfect way to capture the day. Then we met and knew we’d made the right choice.
Tell me a little about you… What do you do? How do you spend your days? What’s important in life?
George recently took the leap into self-employment and has set up a property company which is thriving. Hannah is a Senior Account Manager for a financial training provider. We really enjoy the simple things…spending time together and with our dog Hugo. Going for walks, travelling, seeing more of the world together.
The proposal, tell me everything…
George proposed on Holkham Beach. We had driven down for our annual Norfolk holiday with George’s family. We arrived at the house in Burnham Market and George’s mum asked if we would take their dog for a walk, after she had been cooped up in the car all day. She was waiting for a food delivery so we agreed to take her. Little did I know that everything had been planned out and George insisted we went to the beach. Off we headed, walking down to the water on Holkham Beach. We reached the dunes and George asked if I would hold the dog lead. I turned around and only as I was turning around did I realise what was about to happen. Then he proposed. Its all a bit of a blur now but we facetime my parents straight away – they knew it was happening as well. Then we got back to the house where bunting had been put up around the house and we celebrated all night.
The Venue/s? Why this place above anywhere else?
There was nowhere else we wanted to get married. Although we are from Yorkshire and live there, Norfolk means so much to us both. Getting engaged there and then being able to get married at Holkham was just a dream. There is no venue like Holkham, it is breathtaking. We feel very lucky.
What experience do you want to give to your guests?
Knowing most of our guests had traveled from Yorkshire and London to be with us, and spent a lot of money in the process, we wanted to give them the most special day. I think Holkham Hall on its own is quite something for people who have never visited but for our guests we wanted to make sure all bases were covered, from fabulous food, free flowing alcohol and a good party. We think we covered everything 🙂
