LGBTQ+ WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER
Story Of Your Day is an acclaimed wedding film brand delivering highly-curated films for everyone who shares a vision and passion for storytelling.
Creative Director, Emma Wilson, is one of Europe’s leading female wedding videographers and an outstanding storyteller and wedding filmmaker.
“Telling stories is my passion no matter who you love. For me, it’s about more than just filming your wedding. My intention is not only to film your wedding but to capture the essence of you, as a couple.”
“The most important thing is love. It doesn’t matter in the slightest whether that love is for someone of your own sex or not… It must be understood that love comes first.”
– Stephen Fry
Here at Story Of Your Day, we are passionate and experienced same-sex LGBTQ+ wedding videographers and thrilled that couples like you, who have been waiting years and years for same-sex marriage legislation to be passed, can now fulfil your dreams and put all your long-awaited plans into action.
It may sound cliché, but your wedding day, whether you’re planning an elopement, intimate wedding or lavish affair, will fly by what feels like an instant and the biggest ‘fail’ (an admission from those who made the mistake) is not having a videographer to capture all those beautiful moments and memories.
It is our intention to make you feel comfortable and safe, confident and assured that I will capture your love, your story and the joy and love of all your friends and family, too.
“No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don’t love anybody.”
– Rita Mae Brown
So what can I bring, as your filmmaker, to your LGBTQ+ wedding?
I believe that everyone is equal and that Love is Love … obviously. I celebrated the changing laws throughout the world with my brother, who is gay, and many of my LGBTQ+ friends and I embrace this change in attitude that brings equality and happiness to all humans.
In essence …
I have no filters or prejudices – because I care about equality and that we all have the same choices.
I am passionate about capturing the connection, honesty, authenticity and emotion between two people in love and telling their beautiful story. So when I film gay weddings – Nothing changes in my philosophy and style and if you love my work, then it shouldn’t matter who you’re marrying because my films are driven by you and the story you want to share.
I am proud and honoured when I am given the opportunity to film same sex LGBTQ+ weddings, elopements and celebrations of love.

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.

Emma put together a story that was surprising and thoughtful, fun and light-hearted – precisely like our wedding day experience was.‘
