Capturing the Charm of International Weddings in the UK
“Heather was one of the best parts of our wedding. She is an excellent and talented videographer, and a delight to work with. If you are looking for someone to capture your top moments (comfortably) book Art of Life Films”
Finding the perfect location: Clearwell Castle
Clearwell Castle is an all-inclusive venue, so you don't have to worry about anything—everything can be in one place, and the venue can take care of all your wedding day needs.
"You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving. The great acts of love are done by those who are habitually performing small acts of kindness. We pardon to the extent that we love. Love is knowing that even when you are alone, you will never be lonely again. And great happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved. Loved for ourselves. And even loved in spite of ourselves."
Les Miserables, Victor Hugo
The bride's dress was designed by the bride's sister, a fashion designer, who was also fabulously dressed in a pale pink dress with floral details.
Clearwell Castle has amazing grounds with stunning native trees, plants and flowers which just can't exist in the Phillipines...
BUILDING EXCITEMENT WITH A PRE-WEDDING VIDEO
Turning Memories into Movie Magic
Crafting memorable post-wedding videos
After the wedding day, , it was time to work my video magic. We started with a snappy teaser film, around two minutes long, showcasing the ‘English-ness’ of their wedding and all those genuine, heartfelt moments. And let’s not forget the bride’s unique handmade dress – it magically shifted between shades of blue and white depending on the light. How cool is that? It was designed by the bride’s sister, a talented fashion designer.
Since they planned to show the video at their second wedding party in the Philippines, I meticulously edited their full speeches and ceremony film, creating a feature film that ran about 20 minutes – “The Long One.” This way, they could cherry-pick their favourite audio and video moments to include in the highlights video. I believe in giving you the opportunity to tell me what your favourite bits are – it’s your day, after all!
Your privacy, your way...
For Rachel and John, privacy was a top priority. They wanted their wedding day to be a cherished memory, shared only with their closest friends and family. That’s why only their teaser video is available for viewing, and only on my website – with their full approval, of course. While using clips or photos from your day for marketing purposes is a great for me and helps me get more work, I always respect your wishes when it comes to privacy.
