Business Name: Lara Elliott Filmmaker
Tell us all about your business: We make modern, natural and intimate wedding films. We capture the day in a way which is relaxed and unobtrusive, yet we will be forever present and in the moment with you, your family and friends. Our storytelling focuses on the detail and the experiance, the coming together of everyone special to you both. In addition to shooting weddings we also work with small creative businesses and industry professionals to create stunning video content, specially designed to engage audiences and showcase brands across the web.
What is your favourite quotation: Hmm favourite quote: 'How strange it is to be anything at all', favourite mantra 'work hard stay humble' I'm sure there are others!
What inspires you: I really enjoy the pre-wedding meet up where we run through the schedule and visualise the day coming together, learning about my couples and the time they've spent together, and all the things significant to their relationship. Outside of weddings I try to get outside as much as possible, and I like spontaneous short breaks, exhibitions and going to the cinema a lot... All good for clearing your mind for new ideas.
Tip 1: Remember this is a day to celebrate your love above anything else, so keep your guest list to the people who mean the most to you and don't be afraid to break with tradition, do what feels right for you.
Tip 2: Consider logistics carefully, especially if you're traveling between venues. The day will fly by and you will want as much time as possible to soak it up and be with each other and your guests, however if you are traveling this will give you an opportunity to take a moment to yourselves and reflect on the day so far!
Tip 3: Make sure you have the week free before the wedding to relax and enjoy the build up, I always hear from couples that those few days of excitement and anticipation are some of the best.
