What is your most memorable wedding?
My wedding was so emotional, marrying Amy just a few weeks before my father in law passed away means we realised how precious the memories we were making that day were.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
We are really proud of delivering great films to our couples and hearing the stories of their 'movie premiere' nights with close family watching the first screening.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Check with all your suppliers that they have insurance for liability and indemnity. It's a good way to tell the difference between professionals and amateurs.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My favourite personal touch was a ‘through the keyhole’ film that the best man had secretly recorded around the bride & grooms home. It was funny and sweet and you could tell it was a complete surprise.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Everyone is different, although a 'typical' enquiry comes in through the website asking for some information on my packages. We will usually email, then Skype or talk over the phone, agree a package and then the couple complete my booking forms and pay the deposit plus travel expenses.
What is the most exciting thing you have caught on camera?
Couples shedding tears, whether it's the first moment they see each other during a first look or walk down the aisle.
What is the one film you wish you had directed and why?
Easy, Pretty Woman, the most romantic film, with a great story that flows like the tide, up and down then up again..... a great love story.
What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?
This is really important - any film that is going online has to have quite specific copyright and any wedding film professional will tell you this. Some hits are impossible to get licensed.... I once shot a wedding for a cousin of a member of Westlife - even he couldn't get copyright release for his cousins wedding.
That said I do scour licensing resources for great music that can be licensed for wedding films and my current favourite is 'Hold you Tighter' by Kyle Reynolds.
Describe how you got into videography.
I loved filming family weddings and got the bug for film straight away.
