What a weekend – Filmed for TV again…

September 6, 2011

Angel the wedding owl filmedOur celebrity owls are getting used to film work; Channel 4 –  My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, ITV1 – Daybreak, BBC News  – Royal Wedding.  Now it is ITV2 , Sky 1 – Four Weddings.

People say, ‘never work with animals or children’, we often work with both!! Unpredictability is the word, so stress levels can be higher than usual!!

Mellington Hall in Powys was the venue and it was a very relaxed beautiful old building, with wonderful staff.  This was a great bonus to us as tensions in the hotel are often felt by suppliers.  There was none of this with Mellington’s staff, they were amazing.  Steph, the bride wore a black and white wedding dress and had long black hair and she did look spectacular in her outfit.  She was about 30 minutes late and the registrars were a bit uptight as they had another wedding to go to.  Having said that a guest was 20 minutes late and we are sure he was very grateful for Steph’s prerogative tardiness!  All that said, the wedding went beautifully, Angel was fantastic, right on cue, not remotely unpredictable and posed magnificently for the cameras too. The ‘brides’ (competing for the prize) were filmed with fervour, particularly their reaction to Angel. Thankfully, they loved her and we really hope that our ring bearing barn owl gave Steph some valuable points!

Best man Stephen and Angel
