Good morning one and all!
A question we ask our Brides and Grooms for our ‘Real Weddings’ feature is ‘Is there anything you would change about your big day?’
Often the answer is ‘No, we wouldn’t change a thing’, but more and more, we are getting the answer, ‘We wish we had booked a videographer.’
25 years ago or so, a wedding video was often quite cheesy, with a mixture of still images and video, showcasing the day to the sound of the Peter Cetera’s ‘Glory of Love’ (actually, that song is epic!)
But lately, wedding films are incredible. With new awesome technology that I don’t even begin to try and understand, what you are left with is a beautiful cinema look, with emotive music and the most breathtaking result.
Aurora Wedding Films creates the most stunning films you will ever see. Richard Shelton of Aurora has shot well over 300 films, throughout Wales and the rest of the UK, as well as destination weddings, and with 12 years experience, you’re guaranteed a wonderful result.
We have the pleasure of sharing one of Richard’s latest films, of Victoria and Olivers wedding, shot earlier this year. So I will hand over to Richard himself to tell you all about it, before you feast your eyes on this delight – you’re going to need a tissue.
Victoria & Olivers Wedding Film by Aurora
After meeting whilst studying at Millfield School, Victoria and Oliver were married at Hensol Castle in June this year. What promised to be a warm summers day changed dramatically when the skies opened and we had some of the most torrential rain I’ve seen in years, just as Victoria arrived at the church in Cowbridge!
Luckily, it was just a short shower and the guests were treated to warm sunshine for the rest of the day at Hensol. They booked us after seeing one of their friends wedding films, which we shot in 2014. They were so pleased that they’d got one too and had a special ‘screening night’ at Victoria’s parents for all their family and friends.
I will be honest, I do cry at the drop of a hat, adverts, cardigan inside out, but I defy anyone to not shed a romantic slow tear down the cheek at this film! Beautiful Richard. Just beautiful x
