What is your most memorable wedding?
There are many weddings that stand out but I particularly enjoyed a wedding between an English man and a beautiful African lady. They both looked stunning, were clearly in love and were surrounded by such loving family and friends. They ended the evening with a traditional African dance, everyone looked magical and the whole room was alive.. It really was something.

Plan early and get to know your suppliers. You should work with people who realise your vision and are as excited about your big day as you are!

Comments and Reviews
Describe how you got into videography.
When I was younger, my father always had a big camera on his shoulder and would take it everywhere we went. I didn't think much of it at the time but that is probably where my influence came from.
I bought a camera many years ago and started taking photos, editing them together in to videos and sharing them with friends and family. This quickly turned in to taking videos and editing them. I was lucky enough to have friends in bands who would let us film them and it all started from there really.
I am entirely self taught and have spent some 13 years teaching myself, with lots of 'trial and error' along the way. Fast forward a few years and I have spent a long time building up my company, creating emotional films and getting the reviews needed to prove my worth.
I also run another company, Fresh FX, which deals with our commercial clients where we often film events, promotional videos, bands and a whole lot more. Working both sides of the industry really pushes my skill set and there is nothing I love more than a new challenge.
