i’m a little uneasy when the attention’s on me. this is well known in my family.

it was quite humbling walking into imelda’s preparations. I knew through our chats and emails she’d felt a connection to my work – maybe I didn’t realise how much.

“Uncle Neville – this is the guy I was telling you about. Remember all the clips that I showed you over and over” she said after a quick introduction.

it was extremely flattering hearing this, and I kind of wanted to just disappear into the walls. What I do is really 100% about the couple, their uniqueness, their story and their day – self serving promotion is not really my style and i have no desire become a ‘rock star’ videographer (is there even such a thing?) – so on the occasions when the attention is turned back on me it’s a little bizarre. Having said that, it really does give me so much enjoyment when couples appreciate and well, just get what I do.

I hadn’t shot a greek orthodox ceremony for quite a few years and forgot the somewhat ethereal, spiritual quality that surrounds the ceremony and proceedings. it quickly came back to me.

unlike a lot of wedding traditions, the couples don’t exchange vows. in actual fact they don’t say anything during the ceremony.

it’s probably best summed up by the words of the father conducting the ceremony:

“in the orthodox church the wedding service is not so much an exchange of promises, as it is a dedication of a relationship of love to God”

during this edit I laughed, had goose bumps, and even had tears in my eyes on more occasions than i dare mention. I figure if that was what i was feeling then i was on the right track.

here’s Imelda and Anthony’s wonderful story and their amazing day.

  2. Wow. I alternated between crying and laughing for the entire 5 minutes 28 seconds. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so beautiful – this entirely captured the essence, sentiment and emotion of the day. The videography is perfect – the little moments, the fun, the love… just stunning. Wow.

    1. Thanks so much Belinda for taking the time to share your thoughts and feelings from watching it. I really appreciate it and it’s humbling to know how it affected you.

      Yours could be just about the best compliment I’ve ever received 🙂
