A Woman With a Camera Telling Your Story
“There is no greater power
on earth than story”
My name is Emma and I’m a storyteller with a passion for cinema. For me, there’s something quite amazing about experiencing and feeling a story and then retelling it in a beautiful, timeless and cinematic film.
Working as a journalist and filmmaker at the BBC for more than 20 years has taught me a really powerful lesson – no two stories are the same.
I draw on that knowledge and past experience, which also included being part of a Bafta Award-winning team, to ensure that each and every one of my clients has a wedding film unlike any other.
My films are about people places and their stories. As one of Europe’s leading female wedding videographers, I am the chosen filmmaker for couples who don’t just want their wedding day filmed but their story told.
YOUR STORY IS IN SAFE HANDS
Story Of Your Day is a multi-award winning and highly sought after destination wedding film company, based in Switzerland and with studios in the UK.
As Creative Director of Story Of Your Day I spearhead an expert team of filmmakers all sharing the same storytelling philosophy and style of filming.
Already a highly regarded wedding videographer within the industry, I’m also officially recognised by Canon and Sennheiser for my work and training of others in the industry. I am an Ambassador for ‘Women Who Photo & Film’ and ‘Rise: Professional Female Photographers’ and recently featured in the renowned US photographer publication, Rangefinder, as one of the main female influencers in the wedding film industry.
Story Of Your Day is also recommended by exclusive planners and luxury wedding industry suppliers throughout the world with my work appearing in Tatler, as well as on many wedding blogs, such as French Wedding Style, Magnolia Rouge and Style Me Pretty.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Perfectly located in the heart of Europe, Story Of Your Day works closely with many amazing venues… In Switzerland Suvretta House in St Moritz, The Grand Hotel Giessbach on Lake Brienz and the Chedi Andermatt all exclusively recommend us.
In France, Chateau St Julien, Chateau La Roche Courbon and the exquisite Chateau Chenonceux in the Loire Valley are among our favourite venues who frequently recommend Story Of Your Day.
While in Italy, Story Of Your Day is a valued supplier for Villa Antiche Mura on the Amalfi Coast.
And of course, we still have our favourites who recommend us in the UK too… Goldsborough Hall and Swinton Estate in Yorkshire, as well as Alnwick Castle in Northumbria.
I’m a slave to my business but I’ve never been happier and had so much freedom, I’ve travelled to fantastic destinations and met amazing people along the way.
For most of my working life I almost fulfilled my passion for storytelling working as a newsreader and video journalist at the BBC. But after twenty years I felt unfulfilled and a little ‘hemmed in’ and that’s when Story Of Your Day was born.
I now have job which is also my passion and allows me to say something, make an impact and make a good living.
I’m also a wife, a mum of two fabulous boys and and a gorgeous hound, called Harry. We live in a Swiss ski resort, having moved here in 2016.
I recently made the commitment to film one ’Story For The Soul’ or “Passion Project’ each year, in order for me to give something back to a person, community or a good cause.
The first of these was the story of Frau Hodel, who, after thirty three years, was retiring from the village primary school where I live. I wanted to allow her to look back on her time with fond memories and a feeling of achievement. The film certainly made an impact on her and those she’d made a difference for in her long career.
We all have a story to tell. Our life … where we’ve come from … and how we arrived here IS a story. Now you’ve heard mine, I’d love to hear yours.
Due to the privacy of our clients, certain weddings and events are not available for viewing.
