We do love filming Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah parties…and this was definitely no exception! Having filmed Harley’s brother’s Bar Mitzvah at The May Fair, it was a privilege to be welcomed back by the Conway family to film their youngest son’s Bar Mitzvah at Café De Paris. The Conway family sure know how to party and in doing so gave us plenty of great footage to film. The event was put together by the talented team at London Rox Events and the photography was Kate of Mummy Loves You.
Ruki & Chris’ wedding ceremony took place at The Manor of Groves Hotel, Hertfordshire. The civil ceremony took place in the idyllic gardens at the hotel, followed by a traditional Turkish reception within the glorious Manor Suite. The grand entrance into the reception was led by the Davul Zurna, a traditional form of Turkish music played by a large double-headed drum and a wind instrument. Another Turkish tradition , the testi dance, involves an earthenware pot that is filled with money and sweets. During the dance the pot is smashed to reveal it’s contents. The smashed pot is a good omen for the newly weds to have as many children as the broken pieces!
Ben and Ivan’s wedding ceremony took place at Our Lady Queen of Apostles Roman Catholic Church. After the marriage ceremony the reception took place in The Meadow Barn at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, Welwyn. With Ivana’s Italian background the day was a festivity of Italian traditions from start to end. Adding to that, Ben and Ivana’s upbeat energy enabled us to film some glorious moments during the day which all helps to create a great wedding film! It was also a pleasure to work alongside the very talented team, Sam & Louise photographers.
Amy’s Bat Mitzvah Party took place at the amazing new venue, Twenty @N20. Yet again the crew at Uptown Events transformed and styled the venue into a space that Amy, the Bat Mitzvah girl, partied the night away with her family and close friends. The atmosphere in the room was a non-stop celebration from start to finish.
Charlotte & Matthew were married at the splendid setting of Sandon Hall, Staffordshire. The marriage ceremony took place within the grounds at Sandon Hall at All Saints Church, a short stroll from the main house. After the ceremony the wedding breakfast was held in the elegant Saloon at the main house and afterwards the wedding reception took place in something a little different…. a stunning tipi. With a cocktail bar just at hand, the evening was a festival atmosphere, complemented with the magnificent backdrop of Sandon Hall.
What an entrance!! Andreas & Eleni’s grand entrance into the beautifully staged Imperial Suite at The National Conference Centre was a pleasure to film! They were welcomed by all their guests with rapturous applause as they danced their way into the room. The room looked exquisite and was decorated by the award winning team at The Wedding Lounge. For their First Dance the bride and groom had a piece of music written specifically for them called ‘Only You’. The song was composed by Simon Pollitt and written and also performed on the day by the talented Marc Armstrong.
Claire & Huw sure know to celebrate and put on a spectacular party. With the help of one of the country’s leading event planners, Taylor Lynn Corporation, they celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary and Huw’s 50th Birthday. The marquee at the family home looked stunning and the atmosphere was superb throughout the evening with thanks to the spectacular Swanband, a team of musically talented people who perform around the world. The event was also beautifully captured by Natalie Fisher Photography who’s always a pleasure to work with.

Stefan Louca, Zeus Films’ cameraman (and my son!), was commissioned to produce a short promotional video for the newly established Groomed Barber Club. Stefan, having studied and gained a BA (Hons) Degree in Digital Film Making at SAE Oxford, has become an integral part to the business and over the last few years has brought a great new and fresh feel to Zeus Films. This promotional video for The Groomed Barber Club was welcomed with much praise when uploaded to social media sites and reached an audience of thousands within a few hours, showcasing the new salon with the huge impact it deserves. The video was also filmed in 4K resolution so looks amazing when viewed on a full 4K screen.
Elliot & Kyriaki were married shortly after the New Year in The Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition of Theotokos & Saint Andreas.

The Cathedral and reception were beautifully decorated by the prestigious Red Floral Architecture who styled the space with sumptuous flowers and candles. During the wedding reception a Jazz Band and a Greek Band entertained the guests right until the early hours.
