My name is Ben and my love of all things video started when we used to visit Florida as a child. I loved to film all of the amazing shows as well as the funny little moments we shared as a family. It’s so nice to be able to look back on how we all looked as children, how funny our voices sounded and even the little niggles we had between us! I also enjoyed filming other special moments in our lives such as special birthdays, Christmasses and going on our sixth-form proms.
In 2011, after my grandma had recently passed away, my family decided to go on holiday to Cuba to have some much needed fun after what had been a very difficult time for us all. During our visit, we took a day trip on a catamaran to a tropical island. Not long after we’d set off, I noticed a gorgeous girl sat across the boat, looking out to sea. Around 10 minutes into the journey, I saw her mum taking a photo of her so I took my chance and offered to take one of them together. However, my plans of chatting her up were thwarted when I discovered they were from Colombia and she only spoke a small amount of English! Despite the language barrier we spent most of the day together and swapped email addresses before we parted ways. To cut a very long story short, she’s now my wife and last year we had our first child together!
Every couple has their own unique story (although I realise most don’t go as far as Cuba!) and I’ve always been really interested to hear about how other people met and what unique journey they have shared together. In 2014, I decided I wanted to use my lifelong passion for filmmaking to help tell other people’s stories. I set up Bramblehedge wedding videos to fulfill this purpose. After all – what better setting for this than their wedding day!
Our goal is to create ‘hand-crafted’ videos that are unique to each couple, telling their story and capturing their character in the most natural and genuine way possible. Some of our stories are emotional, others are humorous but they are all filmed and edited with great care and attention to create something very special that you can treasure for years to come!
I would love to chat about your story as a couple and what you have planned for your big day. Please get in touch via the contact form or drop me a line on 07986 544 363. I’m looking forward to hearing more about you!
