What is your most memorable wedding?
Our second ever wedding was for the Duchess of Cornwall's son, Tom Parker Bowles - we had better access than the BBC!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fly-on-the-wall, indie-style, DIY, friendly, down-to-earth.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The feedback we get is always really nice. As well as being there on the day itself we also spend hours and hours on the edit and by the time you get to the end, you sort of feel a little bit in love with them both, so when they see the finished product and they tell you how happy they are, it really means a lot! Likewise, when you know someone was really nervous beforehand and a little camera-shy, to have them say they felt really at ease with us and happy with the results gives us a massive amount of satisfaction.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember that it's YOUR day, have a wedding that reflects you as individuals.
Also, remember that the day will fly by in a blur; make sure you get a photographer and filmmakers that you trust and who's work you love. That way you'll be able to relive it all over and over again, and enjoy any little moments you missed on the day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
It's too hard to pick a favourite! We always keep our eye out - and our camera ready - for the little moments that make a wedding unique to the couple though!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We generally send a few emails back and forth to chat with the couple and find out what they're looking for and answer any questions they might have etc. Once we've worked out a price for the film that they want, we'll send over a booking form with extra info on (and questions about their favourite films etc) and get a deposit to reserve the date for them.
Sometimes we'll pop over for a cup of tea to chat in person, or even film pre-wedding interviews (which can be really funny).
Sometimes we'll come along to see the venue beforehand but that's usually not necessary. On the day we arrive with enough time to say hello again and meet your bridesmaids/groomsmen and the venue staff etc, and after that you'll probably barely notice us.
During the edit process, we'll put updates on our social media - including photos of the work in progress (like the examples we've added to our BrideBook account!), then we'll upload a sneak preview of the highlights and then not long after that we'll upload the full film for you to share with friends and family. The USB/BluRay/DVDs will arrive shortly after, with all the extra films and bonus footage.
What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?
I love it when someone picks something slightly obscure that you just know has a specific memory attached to it.
Describe how you got into videography.
I've always been interested in telling stories using whatever medium I have to hand - going all the way back to making stop motion films with my childhood toys and a super 8 cine camera. Shooting and editing a wedding is like telling the story of one of the most important days in somebody's life, I love it. - Adam
