From the moment we met Stephen and Michelle in the cozy cafe, and as I sat and heard their story. We knew this would be something that needed to be told. Their amazing story of how they got together brought us nearly to tears but also has a story of hope and future that never ceases to amaze us.

Anthony is an excellent tennis coach who is deaf, and Kristina is a translator for the deaf. The two literally met on the courts, come a little journey with them, as we were privileged to capture a little bit of their shared life together.
Kristina and Anthony approached us a month before their wedding, wanting to shoot their love story. So we scrambled a couple of ideas and emails back and forth and went out on one beautiful sunny day in January (when the rest of the week was pouring rain like donkeys!) to film their story, two weeks before they got married!
We think more couples should share their love story together, sometimes watching it is better than writing it out, bringing words to life.
We are really proud to present to you our first love story shot in Northern Ireland and we hope many more to come abroad!

Drenagh Estate, Northern Ireland :: It’s beautiful when you hear some of the most emotional and thoughtful expressions of words at a wedding. A quiver in the voice and watery eyes all helped add to this beautiful story of Andrew and Alison’s day. We love telling stories like these.
We had the most amazing day on Drenagh’s estate and being in such an intimate venue of friends and family helped add to who Andrew and Alison really are.
We also had Tim from This Modern Love photographed this lovely couple and we are big fans of his work!
Help share this short film with your friends on Facebook!
Rossahilly House, Northern Ireland & Stonepark Baptist Church :: What do you get when you get an exclusive venue, a hill with a lovely view, a pair of wellies in a cornfield, crazy dancing in a barn, and two very special people in love? Emma & Chris! Now comes included with the Extended Dance Edition! Enjoy! Feel free to blast the speakers and turn on the disco lights! Did I mention it ended off with an epic 3 minute sunset that we literally ran out to catch it.
Emma & Chris were absolutely easy going and adventurous! I think I had so much fun shooting them that I didn’t really want to leave!
I had so many shots to choose from in the edit, and it was really hard to pick what goes well and in time with the music. When you are spoilt for choice, you know you have had a good day
We shot this together with the fantastic Lou and Louie from Blackbox Photography – www.blackboxphoto.co.uk This was Lou’s first time shooting alone, well not quite, Lou cannot help but pick up that camera! Spot the duo!
Lissanoure Castle // Northern Ireland :: When Sarah’s sister got in touch with me to shoot her sister’s wedding, I didn’t quite know what I was up for! But turning on the day, with beautiful gorgeous sunshine, 3 vintage sporty cars (I’m simplifying it! car fans!), and a simple couple and their guests. I couldn’t ask for more!
Ellie and Brian! What can I say! Ellie came across to me as someone creative and little crazy (in a good way!) and Brian who loves the fun they are all having together! She is an amazing jewellery maker who made all the jewellery you see in the film! So I decided it’s time to take a short departure away from the “usual”, and give them the unique touch to their wedding short film. Her dad has got to be one of the best voices that I didn’t even grow tired of hearing it over and over again! Must see & hear!
We had such a great day working with the “bang-bang-whoop-whoop” dou, Lou and Louie from Blackbox Photography! (Okay I totally made those words up). You gotta check out the pictures from this day!
Switzerland & France :: When Manuel & Nicole first got in touch with me, they had seen one of our films that we shot in Basel, Switzerland. We then decided to “meet” on Skype for a chance to get to know them and us better and boy they are one fun and enthusiastic couple! I think I lost count the number of times we were laughing! The day did not disappoint in sunny Switzerland as we had the ceremony near Basel, Switzerland and made our way out to France to a lovely barn. Manuel even designed and built a machine together with his best friend and man, that read the QR codes of guest invitations so that guest could drop a video message and gifts to them! (Let me know if you are interested in such a machine!)
Their celebration really made me think how homely and how personable all their guest and family members were as people could come up to share a song, a poem, games and there was even an skit! It really felt like we were all together as one family celebrating together with them.
Holy Cross Church, Lisnaskea & Lough Erne Resort :: We were blown away by the response from our very first Same Day Edit of John + Reem’s wedding. They were one of the most friendliest couples that we’ve met. We worked like crazy to bring the edit to the guest just moments before the first dance. Seriously we weren’t expecting the response but I’ll leave you to what Reem shared with us:
“Sam & Danielle, we cannot thank you enough for capturing all of these wonderful memories for us so beautifully. We’ve watched this like a million times already and I’ve cried every single time! (John too but he’ll deny it of course!). You’re so unbelievably talented and the film really did make our day all the more special. It’s all people can talk about! I can’t believe it was only your first SDE! I can’t imagine it could get any better, you guys really are pretty fandabbydosy! So sad it’s over, wish we could do it all over again!! xx”
It was also great to work with Paula McManus, you can check out the pictures of the day on her blog.
There were some things that stood out when I first met Lee & Suzy. One of them was Suzy’s infectious laughter! Together they both make such a great looking couple and nothing’s gonna stop them being so happy together! Can you believe it? The sun actually came out full force that day at the beautiful Darver Castle in Ireland.
Lossiemouth, Scotland | We had a fantastic day with the amazing and gracious couple, Jono (New Zealand) and Marian (Scotland), their smiles were contagious and these guys certainly know how to dance!
We got a chance to take our cameras down a steep hill with the fun bridal party!
