Who Am I?
Hi, I'm Seb, I'm 26 years old, I live in London with my fiancé, Megan and my pet rabbit, Winston. We moved to London after I completed my Degree and my Masters, both in Film Studies at Southampton Solent University, and Megan became an ITU Nurse in the NHS. We are emigrating to Australia in September 2021, and looking forward to our new adventure down under!
I've worked on countless student films, commercials, promotions, interviews and wedding films (obvs).
You name it, I've filmed it. Your wedding is safe in my hands.
As mentioned before, me and my amazing partner, Megan, became engaged last year, and we are due to be married July 2021. So, when it comes to the (huge) task of organising a wedding, I'm right there with you. I always strive to make things easy and simple. You are welcome to be involved as much, or as little, as you'd like, throughout the whole film-making process.
It would be remiss of me not to mention Winston, the rabbit 🐰 My instagram is just photos of him.

How I will capture your day...
A brief summary of what to expect.
I will arrive at whatever time you'd like me to, whether that be during bridal prep or just before the ceremony (I don't use a strict time limit).
I'll quickly say hello to the lovely couple, the beautiful bridesmaids and the handsome groomsmen, and then the work commences! I will always be as unobtrusive as possible, whilst also being my usual friendly self! I'll float around with my camera, making sure to capture all of the details, the smiles and laughter.
During the ceremony and speeches I use a multi-camera system, to ensure you have two angles throughout those important parts of the day. I also use clip-on microphones which attach unobtrusively
to jackets/pockets/microphone stands etc.
I'll continue to film all the best bits, right up until just after the first dance. At this point I will say my goodbyes, pack my equipment and pay a swift visit to the sweet cart
(just a small snack for the journey home...?).
I will never direct your day and I will always prioritise the overall experience for you and your guests.
As much as the films will be forever, the actual day should not be compromised because of me,
in any way.
I wish I could tell you I'm some cool camera guy, that I picked up a lens and knew exactly what to do, that I didn't spend countless hours researching microphones and that I'm not a massive camera geek.
I wish I could tell you that, but I wouldn't want us to start off on a lie.
One of my favourite things about this job is the technology. I've spent many hours (and far too much money) on my kit. Each component has been meticulously researched, tried and tested. Nothing makes it into my kit bag without me knowing exactly what it does and how it does it.
You are, of course, welcome to ask, but if you don't want to, well...I wouldn't blame you.
Instead, I'll leave some photos of my equipment here so you can take a look.
