The first thing that you should know about me is that my business is my absolute pride and joy, and because of this you can rest assured that I will never compromise on the quality of the product that I deliver. Put simply - I'm passionate about what I do, and making films is not just about earning a living, it's about enjoying the process and creating work that I can be proud of! I big non-negotiable for me has always been that all my work is filmed and edited by me personally, with no wedding ever being outsourced to freelance filmmakers. This means that I am able to provide great consistency in my films, and the assurance that the product you receive is exactly what is promised on my website.
SO WHO IS THIS GUY WHO'S COMING TO MY WEDDING...?
That's a reasonable question! Hiring a supplier for your wedding is a personal thing - especially when they will be spending nearly the whole of your special day working alongside you. So here's a little a bit about me so you can get to know who you're inviting along! Meeting and getting to know people from all walks of life is one of the real joys of being a filmmaker, so I consider it a privilege to be allowed to be part of such a special occasion.
Where am I from? I was born in Aberystwyth in the west of Wales, but a majority of my family are actually from the South East. (No Welsh accent I'm afraid ;) ) I've been based in Bristol for about 5 years now, but I actually live just over the border in Chepstow right now.
What do I do to relax? Music has always been a massive part of my life. I play three instruments so that keeps me pretty busy! When I'm not playing music you will probably find me playing sport (or watching it!). I'm a bit of a sports super-fan, following all the major events on the calendar. Tennis...Snooker...Football...Rugby...you name it and I probably watch it! You can catch me hitting a few balls on the tennis court at least once a week!
Always lovely to run into previous couples!

So I began my journey as a wedding filmmaker back in 2015, with full credit going to my Dad for suggesting that I start my own business in the wedding industry. Being a lifetime musician, I actually started out in audio - studying Music Technology graduating with a first in 2012. But having had the opportunity to study audio-visuals and then filmmaking on my course, I changed path to video and never looked back! My background in sound technology has been a massive asset in being able to provide great quality audio as well as video.
