we’re all connected.
it’s been said many times before by people much wiser than me, but it’s true. peel the layers back and at our cores we’re all essentially the same.
sarah and james are both extraordinarily high achievers.
to hear him articulate so well about how surreal an experience it was to be in front of family + friends was something else.
weddings are one of the few life events where this sameness we all share is in plain sight. they’re the great equaliser, and it’s a beautiful thing.

when i was young there was a running family joke that I remember getting trotted out pretty regularly…
‘where’s matthew?’ – and the answer would invariably be:
‘he’s making something’
i was always off searching, collecting, cutting, sticking, drawing, painting, gluing…basically a lot of my time was exploring and crafting things together.
looking back it’s easy to see the similarities between what I did then and what I do now. although a large amount is acheived in camera on the day, it’s in the edit where things really start to take shape.
when milli contacted me she said – we totally love what you do – we want something different – be as imaginative as your want with our film.
to a creative this is like having a blank canvas of awesome.
of course it had to be balanced with still capturing everything perfectly but i had quite a few ideas and concepts running through my head.
milli and david.
