Bev and Andrew Wedding
Have a read if you'd like to know how the project worked out.
A fairytale for both Andrew and Bev, an older couple decided to get married after finding love in each other at an old school reunion in South Africa. They decided on the beautiful village Lilley for their wedding location. Lilley is a charming village located in the county of Hertfordshire, England. The village is situated in the Chiltern Hills, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Lilley has a population of around 900 people and is known for its picturesque countryside views, traditional thatched-roof cottages, and historic buildings. This was a short wedding and only took a matter of hours to film. Invited were close family and friends from both England and Andrews home country of South Africa. It was a very civilised wedding with the party consisting of afternoon tea and a pub lunch at the orange tree pub in Hitchin. I thoroughly enjoyed filming the small show Andrew and a friend put on with their bagpipes in the pub. Also catching the pure happiness on Beverly's face as she watched her husband playing bagpipes to everyone in the pub as she danced through their set of songs. They were such a lovely and relaxed couple to film for. They liked a very raw style video with the whole ceremony left in and as much natural audio from the day left in instead of an audio overlay supplied by Epidemic Sound. Also with no photographer at this one I was not so limited on where I could stand when filming the ceremony and speeches. Overall this was a really enjoyable shoot and I am really happy with how the video came out after the post production phase.
I think a big thing for the couple was having Shareable Content: A wedding video can be easily shared with friends and family who were unable to attend the wedding, and can be a great way to relive the day with those who were there. This is because they have lots of family and friends overseas that couldn't all make it and they wanted to be able to share their day with them so everyone can watch the elderly couple tie the knot.
