What is your most memorable wedding?
Wow! Having filmed several hundred weddings it's hard to choose - but if I was forced to pick a stand-out moment it would be filming a local Vicar singing and dancing to Shut Up & Dance With Me by Walk The Moon..........some people do anything to get on film!!

Describe how you got into videography.
I've been married 18 years - we never had a videographer and to this day regret it, we've lost so many family and friends since our big day and would have loved a video as a keepsake not only to reminisce but to remember those lost loved ones.
Unfortunately, our wedding photos were a huge disappointment leaving me to think "I could've done a better job than that"........albeit in videography as I felt I could be more creative and the following year I shot my first wedding (my sisters) followed by a handful of others for friends and family. What started off as a hobby soon progressed when I got the opportunity to work with a local professional to gain some valuable experience for what was meant to be a couple of weeks................7 years later I was still there and loving it so much I decided to go it alone, and the rest they say, is history.
