What is your most memorable wedding?
Creative wedding stories filmed discreetly.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Book a Wedding Videographer! Its the NUMBER ONE* thing that couples who never booked, say they should have.. DO IT!
What about your business are you most proud of?
This has to be the Groom who lost our reply to his original enquiry (over a month before), then for him to email us when he found it - 32 hours before his Wedding Day! Needless to say, we called him immediately (11:30pm!), met the couple the following day. The Wedding was perhaps one of the highlight Weddings of 2017 for us as they were an amazing couple, who even insisted we stay and relax after we finished filming and even persuaded us into the Photobooth!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I don't have a favorite track. We now only use Licensed music (not pop songs), this means we can create the best emotion to match the story, the couple and the day. The music is chosen based on the couples music tastes and also the feelings we had on the day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The Brides mother Married the Couple in Church!
She was a Vicar, so that helped :) But her service was some personal, warm and heartfelt.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Firsty step is to contact us to ensure we are available for your wedding date. We will confim your booking upon receipt of your booking fee and completed booking form. If you would like to meet before booking, that can be arranged - just ask (being coffee lovers, we usually suggest a coffee establishment :) We will contact you about 30 days before your wedding to arrange to meet and go through the events and timings on the day. We will then confirm with you our arrival time. After that, its countdouwn to the biggest day of your lives :)
What is the most exciting thing you have caught on camera?
House of Flying Daggers.
This is a Chinese Martial Arts movie. I practice and teach Kung Fu, so that is one reason, but from an artistic perspective the visuals in this movie are sublime. The use of composition and colour is unlike anything I have seen elsewhere - breathtaking.
What is the one film you wish you had directed and why?
A recent wedding that had a Phantom of the Opera theme. The Groom was in the Entertainment Industry, wore the same jacket as worn on the stage show, incredible First Dance routine and decorations on the day were beyond incredible.
What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?
I must have been born a creative person. I started out drawing a lot as a child, then upon leaving school studied Graphic Design and Photography. 15 years later I worked in Web design before working as an in house creative director of a company with responsibilities for all the design, branding, photography and video. I had been asked many times over the years to photograph peoples weddings and always enjoyed it. Finding myself in a position where I could set up my own business, I quickly had several opportunities to film weddings head my way. I was hooked from the very first one.
Describe how you got into videography.
The feedback from every single Couple. Creating 'Happy Tears' and the enjoyment our films bring to our couples, their families and friends.
