Dylan called me from Long Beach, California 6 months before the wedding and said "We like your style; the artistic angles at which the videos were shot, the editing of footage to great music, and the feel of the whole viewing experience and you are the person we want to create a timeless memory that we could share for the rest of our lives. We've researched so many companies that seemed so 'ordinary' and we could tell that we could work with you to get a great video that reflected the look and feel of our wedding."
Anyway, during the conversation with Dylan, I had a feeling that this could be our most contemporary wedding to date, so I offered to interview them beforehand. We decided to film at Rebecca's parents house in London and it was an ideal location for this type of thing. This couple (Dylbecca for short) was so passionate about the whole thing that it gave us a boost to make the best highlighs clip we possibly could.
We arrived to this venue which appeared to be the Great Barn, a magical 13th century Grade II barn. There were so many tiny lovely things to film that I left my assistant Max at the venue and went to film other preparations. Dylan told me about the first dance surprise. It was a actual live performance by their good friend Dan Perkins of The New Fidelity (newfidelity.com). Rebecca had no idea. We were so eager to see this idea becoming a reality!
It was to our surprise that the lovely Fearne Cotton of BBC Radio1 and fiancé Jesse Jenkins, a famous celebrity photographer and pro-skateboarder (jessejohnjenkins.com) were in attendance to add to the already magical vibe of the day.
So, since Dylan is from California, they had a second part of their wedding, in Mission Viejo, Los Angeles. We went there in October to film US reception as well. To conclude, we felt so lucky and happy these guys hired Deneemotion to film their UK and US parts!
