One of the people I've most enjoyed connecting with through my blog is Frances Maddell of reellovefilms.  Frances is a wonderful film maker, who has such a passion for her craft – something she fell into as a complete career change. And what a fabulous decision that was.

I've featured several of France's beautifully crafted films already in our Film Gallery – today, I'm featuring the film of Kelly and Ben's wedding, that I hope you enjoy viewing this Tuesday lunch time. Frances told me more about the experience of filming this wedding at the beautiful eco friendly Hertfordshire wedding venue, South Farm.  And the sound track just happens to be one of my favourite songs ever…

"Ah, sunshine! It's been quite rare this year but Kelly and Ben's wedding was full of it, and what a gloriously happy and sunny day it was. The wedding took place outside on the lawns at South Farm, which is home to gypsy caravans, pigs, peacocks a very loveable chocolate lab, beautiful grounds, fields with long grass and a lovely old barn for your reception.

Kelly and Ben are an incredibly sweet couple, they are just so stupidly right for each other and in love, you just felt it everywhere. They are both very family orientated and this really shone through the whole day, they were surrounded by people they loved and people who loved them back – it was an absolute pleasure to film. It was also very relaxed and the sunshine just aded to the lazy, hazy feel of the day. Golden hour was spectacular that evening; Britain in the sunshine really is hard to beat.

Both kelly and Ben (I suspect Kelly maybe more than Ben!) had spent weeks making, sewing, cutting gluing all the little details of the wedding and it really showed, it looked fantastic. Kelly's dress went perfectly with it's lace layers and delicate details, she looked beautiful and the camper van photo booth proved a great hit in the evening…"
