Hi, my name is Stephanie and I live in Birmingham in the UK.

I make wedding films, promotional films and short documentaries.

You can see more of my work on my blog, on Vimeo and follow along with me over on Instagram, but I thought I would also share a few words here by way of introduction.

About Wedding Filmmaking

I love telling stories about people and their relationships with one another. To me, films are like magic as they add extra layers on top of a still photograph in the shape of people’s voices and movements. There’s nothing quite like being able to look back and hear someone you love speak, smile as they laugh, and see them move. Sound can transport us back in time and evoke such strong emotions, and nowhere is that more apparent than on your wedding day.

Weddings are often one of the only times that extended families come together in one place. It’s one of the many reasons I love filming them as there’s so much going on! Your wedding is a chance to celebrate as two and to begin a new chapter in your life together, but it’s also an opportunity to celebrate your relationships with your family and with your friends. It is my hope that when you look back at your wedding films in years to come, that you don’t just remember your wedding day, but that hearing the voices of your family and friends and seeing your interactions with one another evokes a lifetime of memories.

About Stephanie

When I’m not filming weddings, I spend a lot of time outdoors. I really love both film and digital photography, and never go anywhere without my camera. It all started with a ‘Photo a Day’ project which was supposed to be for just one year back starting in March 2011… but six years later I haven’t stopped the daily picture taking! I also really love music and going to rock shows. I’ve recently got back to playing violin and piano after a decade of intermittent practice, and I’m really enjoying playing just for the sake of it with no competition or exams in mind.
