Meredith + Shoshana had a beautiful, intimate countryside wedding at Notley Abbey. The grounds are full of character and allowed them to have the outdoor ceremony the girls were after. Minty Slippers were kind enough to to submit the girls’ wedding video highlight for us to feature and stills from the video too.
Meredith: “I figured that my family, friends, and Shoshana expected me to wear a really smart pantsuit. I wanted to make the day really memorable so I decided to femme it up. I knew the exact look I was going for. I’m probably one of the few brides who was lucky enough to find the perfect dress on her first try.”
Shoshana: “I had a lot of fun choosing my dress – the whole process felt like a dream! The dress I chose was simple but fit so well and made me feel fantastic, Stephanie Allin is very talented. I had the design altered ever so slightly by adding lace to the straps and I made my own sash bow by sewing on lace to tulle. These extra touches helped make it feel even more “me”. It was also pretty fun doing this without Meredith knowing and looking forward to the day she would see it.”
The girls decided to have an unplugged ceremony. For those that haven’t heard of this term before, let me explain. An unplugged wedding is where the couple request that guests put down their cameras and portable recording/photo taking devices and just relax and enjoy the ceremony, allowing everyone to truly be present. It also means that everyone will have great images and video of guests without phones up to their faces or walking around to try to get that great shot from their iPad. It’s a great idea and something has caught on with many couples.
“Have fun with the planning, enjoy the build up, surround yourself with loved ones and don’t forget to pamper yourself.”
“You can take one look at the husband and wife duo’s work and know exactly why we chose Minty Slippers to capture our wedding. Minty Slippers is magnificent and their work truly speaks for itself. Julie and Danny are more than just videographers- they’re storytellers and masterful ones at that.
Of course, the other reason we chose them was because of the kind of people they are. Warm and friendly, but so professional and incredibly understanding, we totally forgot they were there on the day – they were that good!”
