What is your most memorable wedding?
That we are in charge of it. We get to decide how things are done, and that means we can give the customer what they want rather than worrying about sticking to a set process.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Forest Gump. That is one crazy story!
What about your business are you most proud of?
Make sure they like our style and are free on their date. Then discuss what kind of end film they are looking for (we have options). Then we like to meet up or talk over phone/facetime to discuss the finer details and confirm the booking. We take a 20% booking fee, the rest before the wedding. Payment can be made by card or PayPal. We then spend their entire wedding day with them (don't worry we let you shower and dress in peace!), and then the next couple of weeks with them on our computer screens creating their amazing wedding film!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Ever? I tried to show off to my daughter, did a forward roll in the living room and smashed a glass lampshade. Without taking you back to Faliraki 2003 I think that is about as much as I can reveal!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Goodness, everyone has been memorable so far each for its own reason. The more emotional the wedding, the more it makes us cry whilst we edit it - the more memorable it tends to be!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
In our very first wedding the bride was walked down the aisle by her two Rottweilers.
What is the most exciting thing you have caught on camera?
Do everything for you. Don't try and please others!
What is the one film you wish you had directed and why?
Too difficult to answer, everyone is different.
What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?
Personal, emotional, relaxed, fun, cinematic.
Describe how you got into videography.
I have been filming things and taking photo's all of my life. I had a great job, I had achieved all I wanted to in terms of getting married and starting a family, but I had never followed my passion. So I did, I started Your Story Films and enrolled on a course to study Film and Photography. Still can't believe this is now my job - its amazing!
