North West Wedding Videographer
Welcome to Gingerbread Productions! My name's Craig McKenna, and I love telling stories through wedding videos. I like to capture the essence of your wedding day: the words; the looks; the people; the laughter; the love; and mix these ingredients together to create a modern wedding video that tells the story of your wedding day. Whether that's the words shared in a heartfelt speech, or the reading of a loved one, I carefully digest your wedding day as a guest, then re-tell your story from my own perspective. No wedding day should be left to fading memories, which is why I also edit your full ceremony, speeches and first dance for you too. Check out some of the stories of my couples' wedding days below, then learn more about me, my packages and get in touch! I look forward to hearing from you!

North West Wedding Video and Engagement Film: Jennifer + Luke
Jennifer and Luke decided to add an additional service to their Wedding Highlight Video in the form of a Pre-Wedding Engagement Film (Part One / Part Two). After telling me their love story as to how they met on a school trip at the tender age of 15 (Part One / Part Two), Jennifer, Luke and I headed to their local park to re-enact memories from their childhood. As Jennifer is quite short in comparison to Luke's tall stature, a wall used to come in handy to help them to kiss. I won't spoil the video for you, but let's just say that, 'Some things never change!'
Marrying mere days after their interview film was made, Jennifer and Luke tied the knot within the grounds of one of our favourite North West wedding venues, Ashfield House, Standish. During their wedding day, Jennifer and Luke each spoke beautifully about one another during their vows and speeches to the delight of their wedding guests. An incredible evening of partying would follow with many great dance moves from the bride herself! Thank you Jennifer and Luke for selecting me as your wedding videographer - long may you share a love like this.
North West Wedding Video: Tom + Laura
Tom and Laura's wedding at the beautiful, North West wedding venue, Styal Lodge, was one to remember. The pair, who met at a fancy dress party, had a fantastic love story to tell.

Oliver and Melissa's North West Wedding Video
Oliver and Melissa were married in the beautiful, welcoming church of St Mary's in Mellor, before heading across to the stunningly-renovated, North West Wedding venue, Midland Hotel, Morecambe. During the bridal prep, it was obvious that the Father of the Bride couldn't contain his emotions, as Melissa expressed her gratitude for her upbringing and love that she had received. This 'hayfever' continued to plague the Father of the Bride throughout Melissa and Oliver's wedding day, as he spoke beautifully about them throughout his speech. Melissa and Oliver's wedding was filled with joy and surprises throughout. With an amazing set from The Ragamuffins during their evening celebrations, Melissa and Oliver's family and friends partied the night away overlooking Morecambe Bay. Working alongside the amazingly talented North West wedding photographer, Lottie of Johnny Draper Photography, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Melissa and Oliver and would like to thank them once again for selecting me as their wedding videographer.
