I reckon it must be karma.
This week has been extremely hard work, long long hours of editing, one great film produced and a few irritating ‘technicals’ (a phrase we once heard pronounced over the tannoy at Heathrow when explaining the delay of our flight to Auckland!).
So, overall a very productive but at times stressful week.
Then karma kicks in to even things out, as the postie arrives with an unexpected parcel…
A simply wonderful card and pressie from one of our January couples – the brilliant Lynn & Gavin. Thank you guys!
You may have seen the teaser for their film a couple of months back, well their final film has all been delivered and they absolutely LOVED it!.
I’ll share the highlights with you soon….but not just yet 😉 It’s something rather different from the norm…but more news on that to come.
Lynn and Gavin were delighted with their film, and their wonderful box of goodies, and heartfelt card have given me a great end to a busy week.
It’s so rewarding to get emails from couples telling me how delighted they are with their wedding films, and it was so special to hear from L&G how much the films means, and how valuable it is to them.
In fact there are two quotes that I’d love to share with you from L&G that really made me sit up and pay attention:
First from an email from Lynn to Gavin as they talked about the film:
“It’s just so amazing, the film, I’m still trying to work out how on earth I can put it into words.
It is history, our history together. What an utterly amazing day it was. I love the “hello wife bit”; I don’t remember that at all. Funny how it’s all a blur, imagine if you never got to see the film and all those important bits were just gone!”
How amazing, ‘imagine if all those important bits were just gone!” Something I have oft thought about but have never been able to put into words so eloquently.
Secondly from their card to me this morning:
“So many little things are forgotten in the whirlwind of the day, to have them on film is such a gift…You captured the emotion, smiles, tears, jokes and intensity perfectly…we want to tell everyone how brilliant you are.”
I think getting to know Gavin & Lynn, and what’s important to them, helped me to create a film that is perfect for them. One that does show all the little things so quickly forgotten, or indeed lost forever. We strive to make creative, beautiful, and entertaining wedding films. But above all that we make wedding films that are totally individual. The ‘stars’ of the film change at every wedding, so we have a different story to tell at every wedding and that’s our sole aim. To tell a brilliant personal story.
Gavin, Lynn…. thanks for your super kind gift, Callum has already earmarked the Sherbet (and don’t worry Yvonne will get my last Rolo!), but Yvonne, Stuart and I thank you for being an amazing couple it’s been fabulous getting to know you both!
Thanks again to all our couples, we absolutely LOVE telling your stories!
Have a fab weekend everyone. (I’m off to delve into my awesome sweetie box!)
