Adventure wedding filmmaker &
Emma Wilson, the Creative Director of Story of Your Day, is based in Wengen in the Jungfrau Region and is the chosen wedding videographer in Switzerland for discerning couples, like you, who are looking for a truly unique way to relive your most treasured moments with an exceptional film.
“I grew up in the UK but after a short stay with my family in the mountains we soon realised that Wengen could become our ‘home’ and we just couldn’t leave. I am so fortunate to be living in a Swiss mountain village in one of the most beautiful countries, with an abundance of awesome locations and stunning destinations for proposals, elopements and weddings and even vow renewals in the Swiss Alps.”
You’ve landed on this page if you’re looking for something different for your wedding. Perhaps it’s an elopement or an intimate wedding with just a handful of guests or maybe you have an adventurous spirit and you’re looking at ways your wedding can reflect that.
Here at Story Of Your Day, we’ve got that covered because we’re perfectly located in central Europe with easy access to other Alpine countries for Ski & Adventure weddings and here in Switzerland the knowledge, knowhow and awesome nature for an Elopement and intimate wedding.
There’s so much choice open to you, so if this sounds enticing to you but you’ve not yet decided how to make this happen, then read on.
ELOPEMENTS AND INTIMATE WEDDINGS IN SWITZERLAND
So you’re not a fan of big weddings then? The expectation, the extravagance and perhaps even the expense of just one day when you truly feel that a marriage should just be about you with perhaps just a few close friends or family who matter to you most.
Not only that but you love nature and that is exactly where you want to share your vows with one another.
Well look at this place … we have everything right here in one tiny little country slap-bang in the centre of Europe. Within an hour, I can be skiing on the top of a mountain or chilling by a beautiful bluer than blue lake in the valley. (not usually in the same season of course!)
And that’s why the Jungrfrau Region in Switzerland is the perfect location for an Elopement or an intimate weddings.

In the last five years, there has been a real shift in the wedding industry. While I still film many grand weddings with 100-plus guests in chateaux and luxurious venues around the world, intimate weddings are becoming much more popular in the Alpine regions of Europe.
If you’re looking for an awesome filmmaker and storyteller who can also help bring together that vision of an authentic and intimate union, then look no further.
Emma Wilson, is one of Europe’s leading female wedding videographers and a passionate storyteller and filmmaker. She also lives in the perfect Swiss Elopement location!
So what does this mean for you?
I tell stories about people, places and their love. So I absolutely love telling a story with nothing more than my couple …in a stunning location, sharing their love story.
I do not travel beyond the Bernese Oberland for true Elopements and Vow Renewals. This is because I am ‘a local’ and familiar with its beautiful mountains, meadows, lakes and nature. So together, we can take advantage of all of Switzerland’s hidden ‘secrets’ that I have been exploring since relocating here. I also know when to connect with other fantastic wedding suppliers and venues here and when we should ‘go it alone’ and create the most amazing unique wedding stories, in awesome spots where the tourists won’t find us!
While my passion is as a cinematic storyteller, when it comes to ‘small and intimate’ I also love taking the photographs as well, especially when my couples are wanting to keep it as intimate as possible.
In Life, it’s not where you go.
It’s who you travel with.
‘For our adventure winter wedding it took us ages to find a videographer. Mainly because we wanted to go SKIING in our wedding apparel and of course, we wanted a quality video of that! Not only was Emma able to come with us on ski’s, she also filmed almost every minute of our wedding day! Afterwards she made us the most beautiful wedding video and took the time to make it perfect for us.’

‘Story of Your Day was absolutely amazing! My husband and I were married in Switzerland in the same church my grandparents were married 72 years ago, and we wanted to tell their love story as well as ours. Emma was wonderful! She totally took our vision and story and made it something beyond what we could imagine. We were able to share the video with our family and friends at our reception in Dallas as well.’

SKI & ADVENTURE WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHY
There’s nothing I love more than skiing down a mountain of snow with a camera in hand. I’ve even hung out of helicopters and gone paragliding to capture the best film footage for my clients.
Whether your day is taking place in Switzerland, Italy, France, Austria or Germany – it is incredibly easy for me to travel to weddings taking place all across the Alps and Dolomites.
So, if you’re looking for an adventure wedding videographer who loves adventure as much as you, then I can’t wait to capture your story and help make your elopement or intimate wedding day a celebration to remember.
Throughout the whole process, we’ll work together on your vision and combine that with my years of experience in the industry and my passion for filming Adventure Weddings and Elopements.
I pride myself on my philosophy of ‘integrity without compromise’ and work hard to achieve the highest level of excellence throughout your whole experience.
As Creative Director of Story Of Your Day, I want to redefine wedding films, change how they’re perceived and in doing so, offer something unique and exceptional to all my clients.
I don’t make wedding films. I tell stories about people, places and love — and they just so happen to be getting married …
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 experience to ensure that each and every one of my clients has a wedding film unlike any other.
There’s something quite amazing about experiencing and feeling a story and then retelling it in a unique film that brings the story back to life. As my clients, you also share the same ethos and passion.
“Everything I do is inspired by you. We’ll work closely together to tell your unique and extraordinary story.”
“THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR A STORY THAT CAN TRANSPORT PEOPLE TO ANOTHER PLACE”
J.K. ROWLING, NOVELIST, FILM PRODUCER
…and that’s what I want for you as my client. To watch back your wedding film and to feel you’re in the moment all over again, to relive it and all the emotions it evokes within you.
I will discreetly capture moments of the day as they unfold naturally and bring them back to life in an authentic, timeless and cinematic-styled film. I usually arrive on location a day ahead of the wedding itself so I can gather footage of the surrounding area, venue and of course get to know you and your story, with a pre-wedding shoot.
With Story Of Your Day, you’re investing in an unforgettable experience and an exceptional way of remembering it.
