    Bohemian Rhapsody Author Lesley – Ann Jones

    It was a pleasure speaking with acclaimed Bohemian Rhapsody   author and journalist Lesley – Ann Jones at the Croydon Literary festival. What she doesn’t know about music and music history, isn’t worth knowing about. In part one of the interview , she discusses what got her into music, and her long standing love affair with the music of Sir Paul McCartney.

    Newlyweds

    Huge congratulations to Roddy & Pauline. Aged 87 and 76, they are two of the most gorgeously loved up people you’re likely to ever meet, and were like a pair of teenagers on their wedding day! It was a real honour to share in their day, and provide Cinematic Wedding videography  in a  beautiful Stately Home setting in Northamptonshire !

    Wedding at Chelmsford Cathedral

    First wedding at Chelmsford Cathedral and have to say, what a gorgeous place that is, Fantastic architecture and the sheer size of the place is mind-blowing. It helped that the vicar was really laid back and easy going. Some ceremonies can be a little restrictive for a variety of reasons, and often as a Wedding  photographer or videographer you’re instructed to stay rooted to one spot which is a little like having your hands tied. This vicar wasn’t one who came with a book full of rules, apart from the bible, and was a joy to deal with. He conducted a great service too . Afterwards, everyone headed over to…

    Traditional Church Wedding in Southampton

    Loved having a 3 man crew on this tradition Church wedding in Southampton yesterday. We also had another wedding yesterday  in Suffolk, which was shot by one of the newest members of the team , Elliott  and  was as far removed both physically and stylistically from this one, as it was a festival themed wedding . For our Suffolk wedding we were asked to do both photography and make a Wedding film, so we used mainly two photographers and one Videographer, who also took some stills. Love the expression on Aaron, the grooms face in this shot. He looks like the happiest man alive , don’t you think?   #weddings…

    You often get what you pay for with Wedding Photography

    There seems to be tendency  amongst certain  potential clients to always go for the cheapest option. As if the lowest price is all that matters, when it comes to hiring a photographer or videographer . To be honest these aren’t the sorts of clients we like to take on, because they tend to have zero appreciation for the work, passion and dedication involved in good photography or film making . And to make matters worse, they also tend to be the most problematic too. Unfortunately some unscrupulous suppliers can take advantage of people with this race to the bottom  mindset, with some suppliers quoting a ridiculously low price, which gets…

    Festival Themed Wedding v The Royal Wedding

    While all eyes were on Harry and Meghan’s nuptials in Windsor, a little further south a wedding that was as far removed from all the pomp was taking place in the middle of the beautiful Sussex countryside as friends and loved ones gathered together for the relaxed festival themed wedding of Ninja tune recording artist Andy, and his new bride Stefanie. Festival lovers, Andy & Stefanie were gutted that Glastonbury isn’t happening this year , and decided to combine their shared love of music festivals and incorporate this in their big day . I must say it worked out beautifully , with perfect location, super cool guests that included writers…
