Around the beginning of August I decided that I needed a promotional video to showcase not only my business, but also some truly fantastic local wedding suppliers – friends I have met along my journey.
I knew exactly where I wanted the filming to take place. It had to be at Bleu Bridal Gowns boutique, in Shedfield Southampton. I met Sue, the owner, at a local wedding fayre and after chatting most of the day she told me about her beautiful barn conversion that was her boutique, with hanging wooden beams and racks of stunning wedding dresses. I immediately contacted Sue with my idea of filming this mash up of a wedding/makeup video, and luckily she saw the same vision and was delighted to allow us to film at her shop. We just needed a model to complete our crew!
Sue had worked with a local model called Chloe Lancaster, having Chloe wear some of her gorgeous wedding dresses (see Bleu Bridal Gowns for more pics) I knew Chloe would fit into the team nicely, and it helped that she was utterly stunning! So we fixed a date and began filming in early September, on perhaps the hottest day of the year! Great for lighting, not so much for poor Chloe who had to wear a wedding dress! But she was such a professional and never complained even when we stood her near the door!!
I always knew that if I did a video of any kind, then I needed Jo Hicks to do the flowers. This woman is simply amazing. She believed in me right from the start, so encouraging and always helpful in promoting my business. Her floral creations are so thoughtful, and I don’t recommend anyone else for flowers as Jo is just the best – and why have anything less on your wedding day?
I am so so happy with the video, Matthew Craig did a fantastic job filming and editing it. And I think the music just sets off everything beautifully. I get a little teary every time I watch it, as I feel this video is an accumulation of two years hard work to get here – through wedding fayres, being featured in wedding blogs and magazines…and of course working with some wonderful brides, who without them I wouldn’t be doing stuff like this xxx
