Tell us a bit about your business…

Hello! I’m Nicola: a daydreaming bookworm from England with a lifelong love affair with cameras and film. In my wedding films I capture the little details you’ve spent months planning, as well as the big moments bursting with emotion.

What really makes a cinematic film special though, is being able to relive all the fleeting moments in between; the ones you’ve long since forgotten. If there’s one thing I get told by every bride, it’s how quickly their day flew by!

What made you start up the business…

My passion for filmmaking really began when I was 12 years old, the day my Niece Grace was born. I filmed her big and little moments for over 10 years, and it was the most wonderful feeling being able to hand over to my sister a lifelong keepsake.

A camera fanatic, my equipment has changed and my collection has grown, but the idea behind my films is still the same: emotive, natural & timeless. I said goodbye to my office job to jump into the wonderful world of weddings and have not looked back!

What makes you Unique…

My absolute obsession with wedding films – I am addicted! It is my greatest passion: telling your story the only way I know how….it’s not unusual to find me sobbing over my computer whilst editing your speeches! I make handcrafted, quirky & very often tear-jerking wedding films that really are gorgeous to watch.

What kind of couples match your style of service…

I love couples shying away from tradition and really going for it with their wedding day – if it isn’t about having the most fun possible with the people you love the most, what is it all about? Most of all I love a couple who appreciates the importance of a wedding film! After all, when the dress has gone to the dry cleaners and the confetti has been cleared up, your film is really one of the only lasting memories – make it a good one!

Tells us what you love about your business…

EVERYTHING!! Literally, everything. From the enquiries from couples telling me all about their big day, to the hours of editing afterwards. Capturing spontaneous laughter from excitable bridesmaids, to lovely thank you emails from couples who became friends. I love what I do so much!

Most favourite event/ wedding…

I really can’t choose! No two weddings are ever the same and I suppose that’s the beauty of it. I love personal touches though: Aston Villa themed wedding cake, a cricket themed wedding for an Australian/English family, a sing-a-long afterparty, even a conga!

People’s reaction to your business…

The feedback that I get most often is “I honestly didn’t even know you were there!”….which is great!
Another one that I love….”She captured all the best bits of our day, and our guests loved the film as much as we did!”

Future plans…

Destination weddings! What could be better than doing what I love AND traveling?!
