WHO ARE WE?
Firstly we absolutely love what we do, and we hope it shows?!
Weddings are our passion and telling wedding stories for our couples is a real privilege.
STEVE - Creative Director, Camera Genius & Editor
I have the best job ever! I'm so blessed with a wonderful wife (Yvonne) and a fabulous son (Callum aged 14). I simply love weddings because of the unique stories that they all tell, and it's such a privilege to share in these special moments in people's lives. To be able to capture their wedding day and create meaningful and individual stories is a joy! Like I say, I have the best job ever!
Background: A countryside upbringing in rural Shropshire, boys boarding school, University of Birmingham to do Biology Degree, then 8 years in the Pharmaceutical Industry. After progressing as far as I wanted, it was time to turn a hobby into a business. 10 years later, here we are with 5 VOWS Customer Service Awards, and two prestigious UK wide IOV Awards in 2009 & 2010 for my Wedding Films. I think I found my calling and I guess we must be doing something right. Hope you agree.
