What about your business are you most proud of?
My personal upbeat and friendly nature to capture someone’s very important special day in stunning quality without being noticed or in the way. Many bride and grooms are amazed how I manage to capture the variety of shots whilst blending in discretely. Always going that extra mile to make their video the best it can possibly be.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book well in advance so you both get your first choice in all the professional services you’ll require.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The bride being walked down the isle by her pet dog as the ring bearer that also brought the couple together.
What is the most exciting thing you have caught on camera?
A beautiful young barn owl flying down the isle and settling upon the best mans arm as the personal ring bearer. It was a complete surprise for all of the guests so only a selected few of us knew.
What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?
I’ve used many film soundtracks over the years, but the most popular by far is ‘A Thousand Years’ from the Twlightlight Saga. This song really compliments our contemporary creative filming and editing style with a heartfelt powerful sense of emotion throughout the whole track.
Describe how you got into videography.
After successfully graduating with a degree in Media and Music Technology and being very passionate about all aspects of creative production, I taught A Level Media Studies whilst developing Cherish Media. After filming family and friends weddings in the early 2000s and after developing a passion for the wedding industry when my wife and I got married in 2007 - Cherish Media was formed. I absolutely love everything about the whole process! It’s a huge honour to be a part of one of the most prestigious days of a couples life!
