Going to the Chapel
At the end of February we were fortunate enough to film the wedding of Rachael and Tom Dawson.
I have always been a lover of weddings, long before I ever started filming them. I love everything about them. The outfits, the highly charged emotion before the ceremony, the speeches (I LOVE THE SPEECHES), and just the sheer joy and excitement on everyones faces as they get behind a couple, on what at that point, is often the most momentous occasion in their lives. As far as I’m concerned the more sobbing the better.
The day goes by in such a glorious blur that the wedding film is hugely important in allowing the couple to relive their time long after the confetti and has been swept up. No pressure then!!
Teenage sweethearts, Rachael and Tom are a great couple, clearly made for each other, and they have a lovely set of family and friends to match. There was a lot of love in the room and it was an honour to be there to share it and capture it for them on camera. Or 2 cameras in actual fact.
Whatsmore the soundtrack to their day was so super cool (think Arctic Monkeys and the Courteeners) that editing was an absolute joy.
If, like me, you love a wedding, have a look at this short version of their story.
