Jaimie and Simon were married six years ago at Simon’s old school, the Duke of York’s Royal Military School near Dover.
I had a wedding enquiry today for later this year. It was Jaimie and Simon who recommended me and it made me think. I’ve shot many weddings since their big day but theirs was a little different.

I decided to go with it. I thought they would be horrified but they weren’t. They loved it! Sometimes you just have to trust your instinct. Five years later, I have to say that this particular highlight video is one of my favorites. The song captures their wedding day so well and I still feel that.

Highlight videos also ensure I never forget a past couple I’ve filmed, I know them all by name and would recognise each and everyone of them if I met them on the street.
