So having already unveiled my cake supplier and venue, this week it’s all about the photographer and videographer, both of whom we met aboard the SS Nomadic at the Curious Wedding Fair back in February. After being drawn to their stand by the beautiful shots of a beaming couple on the Merchant’s rooftop laid across the table we got chatting to the lovely Darren and Ana, the photographer and behind the scenes manager, of Darren Best Photography and were really impressed with their work. A few months after the fair, having had the chance to do more research into potential photographers we arranged a consultation with Darren and Ana as we were still very interested in working with them. We had a great chat over a cuppa and discussed our vision for wedding photos and discovered Darren was the perfect fit for us. He shared the same passion for creating really artistic and colorful shots, whilst capturing the story of the day as it naturally unfolds. We both felt it was important that the photographer not be too intrusive, we did have one photographer say they would “get behind the veil with us” Emm..no thank you!
We are so excited to meet up with Darren and Ana again soon for our couples session shoot. Look out for the photos hitting the blog In November!
I have to admit watching wedding videos has became a bit of a hobby of mine over the last few months..and yes a few have caused me to well up! But I am yet to find any as visually stunning and emotional as Rabbit and the Fox’s hand crafted films. For a while we debated whether we wanted to pay the price for a wedding video but after meeting Ricky at the Curious Wedding Fair and viewing his stunning wedding videos in his amazing pop up cinema stall we were definitely won over. I loved Ricky’s cinematic style of videography. When you are paying alot of money for a wedding video I think it is important it is highly edited so it doesn’t look like something uncle Bob shot on his handheld video camera circa 1980. A video is such a lovely way to relive your Big Day over and over again and you may even discover some moments you missed. If you’re thinking of hiring a videographer to capture the look on your groom’s face as you walk down the aisle and the sound of your dad’s voice as he gives his speech check out the Rabbit and the Fox at the links below. Warning – Have tissues at the ready!
