I am both a professional photographer and videographer so as well as perfectly captured audio, you will have your story captured with gorgeous moving images. I offer a range of wedding film packages, but can also tailor make a package to suit you. Please visit my website to see examples of my wedding films and for further information. Your wedding day film will include: Introductory phone or video call and consultation, to make sure I am the right filmmaker for you and to give you all the advice you need in getting the video you want for your wedding. I'll also liaise with your photographer as necessary. Filming advice and planning consultations in the lead up to your wedding Usually 9-10 hours of filming for a full-day package (or as long I need to make sure I'm there from the bridal prep through to an hour or so after the first dance) Your wedding film professionally produced and provided using a download link.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Heather Hughes
I've been a professional photographer, shooting dancers, portraits, landscapes and interiors for more than ten years and moved into video in 2018. I'm very calm and easy-going and I love being around people and getting relaxed, fun, romantic and beautiful footage of people and your day. I specialise in cinematic, documentary style wedding videos, in a discreet, fly-on-the-wall style, with multiple cameras and capturing high quality sound. Any questions, please do get in touch!

The most perfect wedding video! 😍
We would like to thank Heather for being such a wonderful addition to our wedding day! We were very new to the world of videography and felt quite nervous about it, but Heather kindly talked us through it, her warm and caring personality helped us to feel comfortable and relaxed the whole way through. Heather produced a gorgeous wedding highlights video for us, capturing all those special little moments that we will hold close to our hearts, including our son playing and our first stroll in the orchards as husband and wife. We cannot recommend her enough, a very friendly, professional lady with heaps of passion for producing videos. Thanks for capturing our story so perfectly!

Wedding Videography
Heather was fantastic, really reliable, so friendly and easy-going. She got on with everyone on the day, and we really loved the natural style of her shots, and how she captured special little moments between the guests and the family as well as capturing the ceremony. She was a perfect fit for us, took the trouble to find out as much as possible about the couple, family, friends and the venues upfront. She put so much effort in and we just loved the end results. Book her - you won't be disappointed

Wedding Videography
We needed a 2nd shooter for a wedding in Hampshire and contacted Heather from Art of Life films and we are so pleased that we did. Heather really made the difference on the shoot - she knew where and when to film and was a true professional. We would highly recommend Heather for any Wedding or Corporate project in the future. We will be using Heather again for larger corporate projects later in 2019.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

My mother's second wedding when I was six and her bridesmaid!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

romantic, cinematic, documentary, stylish, friendly

What about your business are you most proud of?

I love being able to work with people and create a film of their special day that they love

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Make sure you meet your videographer and run through the day step by step, so everyone knows exactly what shots are happening when.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Face to face meeting where you talk me through how you met, and your plans for the day and any special requirements and you decide if you like me. If that's not feasible, I can send you a detailed questionnaire about your wedding and we can talk on the phone. If you do I'll send you a contract and you would return this signed with your deposit. The remainder needs to be paid 2 weeks before the wedding. I'll contact you a few days before the wedding to check the times/places. Then I'll be there to film your special day! Within 4 weeks (usually much quicker) you'll receive a link to the video on Vimeo to check, and then you'll receive the final wedding film files.

What is the most exciting thing you have caught on camera?

A deserted town filling up with sand

What is the one film you wish you had directed and why?

Citizen Kane, I love the style, and I can't believe how well put together it is considering it's all analogue film.

What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?

Such a difficult question - it really does depend on the couple and their style. I normally send links to music that can be licensed to the couple in advance so they can choose.

Describe how you got into videography.

I was a photographer for many years, and one day I decided to sign up for a storytelling video course at a well-known London college, loved it and have never looked back!
