Wedding Video Videographer Love Marriage Wedding

At the risk of sounding clichéd (I'm willing to take that risk!) I have literally been involved with weddings and other events for over 20 years now...

My first encounter with local hotels and venues was when I worked at a balloon shop from the age of 15. It taught me a lot about how important every last detail was - and also about timings being key to a smooth and stress free day for all.

Since studying Media at College, I found a passion for the TV world and loved (much to the annoyance of friends and family) to dissect how all programmes and films were made. I then went onto a TV Production course at Uni and gaining an honorary degree.

I'll be honest - I didn't want to do weddings - it was only because my lecturer suggested that it would be a great opening to get into that field of work. So I set-up my business in 2006 (as Cam-eleon Productions) and boom! In my first year I had 28 bookings...and ate my hat as I loved every one of them!

I think it was a fresh and new thing back then - having your wedding filmed was more of a luxury and has now become an absolute must! I could never understand why people would justify spending thousands of pounds on floral arrangements and then scrimp on the things that last...

Being female led has definitely helped to put nervous Brides at ease (especially when meeting in the morning) I am a familiar face when they walk up the aisle.

We do have a 3 camera set-up but you really don't see this! I often hear guests asking how the couple know us (assuming that we are friends) which hopefully shows that I am doing a good job in being discreet and relaxed whilst at work.

I honestly do love my job - often referred to by photographers as a "Ninja" I don't like to miss a thing. I promise that with every shot I take and with every edit that I make, I am always striving to produce the best film I can for every one of my gorgeous couples to treasure, forever X
