Binky + Daz, Bedfordshire Wedding Video
Recently my sister-in-law-to-be asked me about our extended highlight edits. I always remember Binky + Daz’s Bedfordshire wedding video when recalling our longer highlights films. Probably to do with the fact that it was the first 10 minute highlights we did, but more so because I think it still stands as one of our best. We throw around the word “timeless” when describing out wedding videos. But truthfully how can you know that your films will be timeless?? I think Binky + Daz’s video might be the best proof we have that they just might be – as it’s over 5 years old now and still up there with our most current.
Another thing I always remember when thinking about Binky + Daz’s wedding was the amazing testimony Binky gave – not just for the film Ben made for her – but for Wedding Videos in general.
Binky: Obviously when planning my own wedding I was pretty well connected to source some amazing peeps. Being in the industry and being a photographer, stills and film were obviously very important to me. I lost my Dad nearly 10 years ago and I have no moving footage of him. I know what weddings involve, the rare gathering of all the people you love the most.
For me a film was a must as I know in years to come some of those people sadly won’t be here anymore. On film you get to see the expressions, the way someone holds them self, they way they walk and if they throw their head back when they laugh.
The First Viewing
I still remember the first time Ben text me to say he posted a film on facebook and wanted my opinion. We had no idea it was ours! Off I trundled to have a look and had total goosebumps when i saw the title frame. I don’t even know how to write this next sentence, how to sum up how that film makes me feel. I watch it and smile, I feel like I am there all over again, I can smell the flowers, feel the sun on my face and feel the love from everyone in that barn. Ben was given a gift when he arrived on earth and that was to capture all of this. To tell peoples stories in the most magical way possible. He didn’t miss a single thing, what we ate, what we drunk, the people we love, our gorgeous pooch but most of all how we feel about one another.
Every time I watch the film I smile and cry all at the same time, it brings back amazing memories of what is by far the best day of my life. Ben will never know how grateful we both are for our film, for getting us, what is important to us and putting it all together in the most beautiful way.
I’ve just watched it again whilst writing this and I am off, teary but oh so happy, its beautiful and I love it so much! Thanks Ben x
Rock My Wedding
Binky + Daz’s wedding was published on the Rock My Wedding Blog in 2013 (think Charlotte’s probably a bit more on top of things than we are…). So if you want anymore info about her wedding or to see more of her beautiful photos by Marianne Taylor, head over there and have a look 🙂
