How a Wedding Band Will Add Magic to Your Wedding

I know when we got married we were really torn over whether to have a wedding band and DJ or just a DJ. We LOVE music. We LOVE live music. But after planning everything else when it came to picking a band we soon realised we should’ve debated it sooner! We couldn’t find a band free that we LOVED just as much (serves us right for leaving it so late for an August Bank Holiday weekend wedding!) so we missed…

A English Bangladeshi Spring Wedding Video

On a gloriously sunny day I had the pleasure of being the videographer at Jennifer and Nazar’s very colourful and cultural wedding over in Churchtown. It was then on to The Bold Hotel on the famous Lord Street in Southport (famous for it’s grade listed Victorian arcade and boulevard). It’s surprisingly rare I get to do a local wedding so when Jennifer contacted me to chat about her wedding in Southport it was wonderful to already know the locations she…

8 Years Since My First Wedding Video…

How did this happen??? 8 AMAZING YEARS of being a wedding videographer!

Father’s Day Family Film

Father’s Day is a wonderful time (excuse) to celebrate the awesome Daddies and I love to do something personal for Lee (when I can fit it in between weddings!). Whether it’s a handmade card (and this year Paisley has actually helped do it, no faking a scribble signature haha) or a little crafty thing we’ve made together. Even a homemade bake, Paisley LOVES baking. Every year I put a bit of pressure on myself to do a little film to…

Annabelle and James’s Wirral Wedding

Thornton Manor in Thornton Hough (Wirral) has proven to be a very popular North West wedding venue over the years for me and it’s so easy to see why!

All the effort paid off as it really was a beautiful wedding and the little touches really did make the difference… [reveal heading=”%image%…

Wedding Photographer or Videographer, or both?

It was when I saw my own wedding photographer roll his eyes at the mere mention of people filming our day that I started to wonder what the issue was with wedding photographers and videographers working together. How sad, I thought. Why on earth would he be so obvious about his dislike for a film crew when he’s never even met my guys before, let alone worked with them? But after a little research and asking a few of my…
