Date: January 2020
Venue: Skylark Golf & Country Club
Couple: Mags & Mark
Videographer: Dan Thomas
As a documentary wedding videographer, I love weddings where there is equal amounts fun, emotions and laughter. That was definitely the case with Mags & Marks wedding. When I first met them in their cafe in Gosport I knew how much fun their wedding was going to be. They were extremely laid back and fun to talk to and I couldn't wait to capture their wedding day.
Skylark Golf & Country Club is a gorgeous venue. The entrance is so grand as you drive down this large, private road that's flanked by dozens of houses, which I reckon start at £1 million. Skylark has two separate areas for weddings. The Barn is for ceremonies and is the perfect setting to get married in as you are surrounded by rustic decor but, thanks to large windows on one side there is lots of natural light. Then you have the Bar & Dining Room for the ceremony, which has stunning views over the golf course, is large enough to comfortably hold a good size gathering but also small enough so that it does feel intimate and you don't feel miles away from the action when you are there.
The day itself was overcast but I don't think anyone expected anything different in early January. I started filming just before the ceremony as Mags didn't want the bridal preparations captured. The ceremony was gorgeous and so personal to Mags & Mark. It is those sort of ceremonies that I love the most and there was hardly a dry eye in the house. The rest of the day stayed dry so I could have some time with the newly married couple out on the golf course.
I absolutely loved this wedding and can't wait to capture more weddings at Skylark Golf & Country Club as it is a magical venue.
