We make wedding films, wedding videos, call 'em what you will.
Firstly we absolutely love filming weddings and we’re passionate about telling unique wedding stories via the medium of video, but who exactly are “Cherry Tree Films”?
STEVE – Creative Director, Camera Genius & Editor
I have the best job ever! I’m blessed with a wonderful wife (Yvonne) and a fabulous son (Callum aged 20. Eek! he’s 20! We got started young ! ). I love making wedding videos because of the unique stories that they all tell, and all the wonderful people we've met along the way (couples and other wedding peeps). Not to mention how much flipping fun they are, hilarious at times (in a good way). Weddings are meant to be fun remember! Like I say, 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. 18 years later, here we are with 5 VOWS Customer Service Awards, and two prestigious UK wide IOV Awards for my Wedding Films. I think I found my calling and I guess we must be doing something right. Hope you agree.
4 words: Humour. Integrity. Learning. Trust.
Favourite tipple: Central Otago Pinot Noir (or a cheeky Cote de Provence!)
4 things you can’t live without: My PS4 Pro, My Xbox One X, Google Play Music, Yvonne & Callum.
What did you want to be aged 6?: A drayman (I was brought up in pubs! They delivered beer, what can I say!)
YVONNE – “The Boss”, Camera Genius & Admin Genius
Background: Born and raised in Edinburgh, went to James Gillespies’ High School and then Napier Uni to study Biology. Then 6 years in the Pharmaceutical Industry where I met Steve, and after getting married on a beach in the Caribbean decided to set up my own successful Wedding Planning company (Scottish Wedding Consultants, and then Sixpence Weddings) arranging weddings for clients from all over the world. As the years went on I became more and more interested in the film side of things and these days I’m full-time with Cherry Tree both filming and in total control of all of Cherry Tree’s admin and make sure we’re always in the right place at the right time. A full-time job in itself believe me! The 5 VOWS Customer Service awards we’ve won really do show that we achieve our aims of providing truly exemplary service!
4 words: (Attention to) Detail. Friendly. Genuine. Fun.

3 things you can’t live without: Champagne, Sunshine, Shoes (The 3 S’s).
What did you want to be aged 6?: An Air Hostess.
Wedding Film kind words...
I cannot even begin to put into words how frigging epic that film is. Wow wow wow. You absolutely nailed it, I’ve been in bits all night watching it over and over. We cannot wait to show our friends and family.
Such an amazing day and you guys have exceeded our expectations by a country mile on the film. It’s been so nice seeing bits we had totally forgotten about happening. Unreal, thank you so so so much from the bottom of our hearts, we have the most amazing film to keep forever as a souvenir of the best day ever. (Jonny reckons he actually may watch this more than he watches replays of the Le Mans last lap 😂😂)
Epic epic work. Can we do it all over again? 😂”
