When Heledd asked me if I would make a short promotional film for her wedding photography business I did virtual cartwheels. I adore Heledd’s work and we collaborate a lot documenting weddings in North Wales and Cheshire so it only made perfect sense to produce her video.

She organised a styled wedding photoshoot at the stunning Rivercatcher Cottages in Llandrillo, Corwen and brought together many well-established wedding suppliers from North Wales to style a dream wedding.

It was a wonderful experience filming Huw & Dilwen’s wedding at Capel Gellifor and Ruthin Farmers Auction House while Heledd Roberts photographed the wedding.

The theming was beautifully rustic to tie in with the couple’s agricultural background and we had a fun (but cold!) photoshoot at a lake near their farm with stunning views of North Wales.

This wedding will always stick in my memory because it was my first Welsh-speaking wedding. If only I could speak Welsh! The couple were very pleased with the highlights video and it had a good reception on social media.

This tribute was broadcast on American television last year on an affiliate of PBS.
Watched by Hugh Bonneville, Dan Stevens and GMTV presenter Richard A. Arnold. And “retweeted” by them on Twitter.

Downton Abbey is so inspiring and I am proud to present my first tribute video in 5 years!
