An Introduction

You and I have a shared vision.  I am driven by a desire to redefine wedding films through extraordinary storytelling — and you’re searching for something different; much more than a wedding film, you want an experience that allows you to relive your day moment by moment in a beautiful, timeless and cinematic film.

Together with my exceptionally talented team of audiovisual storytellers we are dedicated to transforming your vision into extraordinary films, accompanied by an unrivalled level of service.

Emma

My films are stories about people, places and of course love. For me, there’s something quite amazing about having the opportunity to retell a once-in-a-lifetime compelling love story, to offer my clients the ultimate experience and to deliver an exceptional film which is unique, authentic and soulful.

I’m Emma and I’m an audiovisual storyteller with a passion for cinema.   I’ve spent the past decade capturing love and joy across the globe and I believe every story, like yours, is unique and extraordinary and deserves to be told exceptionally.

“There is no greater power on earth than story”
– Libba Bray

Working as a journalist and filmmaker at the BBC for over twenty years has taught me a really powerful lesson – no two stories are the same. I draw on that knowledge and past experience to ensure that each and every one of my clients has a wedding film unlike any other. I am the chosen filmmaker for couples who don’t just want their wedding day filmed but their story told.

Behind The Storytelling Brand

In my new branding,  ‘Story Of Your Day,’ the bird in flight is more than just a logo; It is a tribute to my home, Switzerland, a place renowned for its natural beauty, mountains, and lakes. It reflects my deep connection to nature and the awe-inspiring surroundings that inspire my craft. What truly sets this logo apart is its sketch-like design, imbuing it with an artistic and creative touch.

The bird is also a symbol of the essence of the Story Of Your Day storytelling ethos. It embodies the freedom of creativity, mirroring the boundless possibilities that arise when I capture and narrate your unique story. Much like a bird soars through the open sky, I observe and document your moments from an unobtrusive vantage point, ensuring that your narrative remains authentic and uninterrupted.

The result is a cinematic storytelling experience that redefines wedding filmmaking and exudes high-end luxury, turning your story into a beautiful, timeless work of art and etching your story into the hearts and memories of all who encounter it.

At Story Of Your Day, we offer two distinct options for your wedding film experience to ensure that extraordinary films are accessible to a wider range of clients while upholding the same standards of excellence that define the exclusivity of the Story Of Your Day brand.  Choose the cinematic experience that resonates with you, guided by Emma’s expertise and passion for crafting extraordinary wedding films.

As well as being a ‘filmmaker, storyteller and visionary’, I’m also a ‘mother, a dog-mum, a sailor and skier, fondue-fiend and gin-lover.’

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.  Telling their stories has given me great joy.

For most of my working life, I fulfilled my passion for storytelling working as a newsreader and Video Journalist at the BBC.  But after twenty years working in various newsrooms and on a variety of news & current affairs programmes I resigned.  My dad, my greatest fan, didn’t talk to me for three months!  But I knew I’d made the right move because I’d felt unfulfilled and a little ‘hemmed-in’.  That’s when Story Of Your Day was born.

I now have a job which is also my passion and allows me to say something and be heard, make a positive impact and enjoy a good living.

I’m also a wife, a mum of two fabulous boys and a gorgeous hound, called Voltaire.  In 2016 we relocated to Switzerland, to a car-free ski resort called Wengen, which is high up in the Jungfrau Region of the Alps.

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.

I’m also passionate about sharing my knowledge and expertise with others in the industry so I’m a leading brand ambassador for several campaigns, a videographer trainer and mentor as well as running my own Facebook group to support and inspire female filmmakers.

I recently asked my friends to describe me in three words. Of those I’m happy to share 😉 They said …. passionate, loyal, inspiring, helpful, loyal, tenacious & driven, confident and honest.

 

We all have a story to tell.

Our life now … where we’ve come from … and how we arrived here IS a story.  Now you’ve heard mine, I’d love to hear yours.

Please help me help other Ambassadors supporting Vows For Girls…

12 million girls are married each year.  That’s 1 girl every 3 seconds,

Every girl should have the right to choose if, when, and whom she marries. Too often, child marriage robs a girl of her choices and opportunity. She may be forced to leave school. She may experience violence or have a child before she is ready.  She is more likely to experience poverty and remain in poverty throughout her life.

Your wedding has the power to have a lasting impact beyond your vows for millions of girls every year.  By VOWing your wedding, when you say I do, you can give a girl a chance to say I don’t or not yet.

Just ask me how you can help this awesome charity and I’ll send you all the details you need.
