SWISS WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER
Story of Your Day is the chosen wedding film and photography company 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. You want more than just your wedding day filmed; you want your story told.
“As Creative Director at Story Of Your Day and a wedding videographer and wedding photographer based in Switzerland, I am so fortunate to be living in one of the most beautiful countries with an abundance of awesome locations and stunning destinations for proposals, elopements and weddings.”
“Look beyond the chocolate, cuckoo clocks and yodelling – contemporary Switzerland is all about once-in-a-lifetime journeys, heart-racing Alpine pursuits and urban culture.”
– LONELY PLANET
This quote is so apt isn’t it? Switzerland has everything and that’s why this is your chosen location for a dream destination wedding. And it’s one of the reasons why, when my family and I took a six month working sabbatical here just over four years ago, we ended up living here permanently.
We are #swissfamilywilson and we live high up in the mountains in a car-free ski resort called Wengen, which is in the Jungfrau Region of the Bernese Oberland.
So what does this mean for you? Well, apart from the obvious, that I am an acclaimed Swiss wedding videographer and that I love filming wedding stories in Switzerland. I am centrally situated in Switzerland and perfectly located for weddings, elopements and proposals. But I am also ‘a local’ and familiar with its beautiful mountains, lakes and cities, villages and communities. 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!
“There is nothing quite like climbing to the top of the Alps and looking down upon the earth. Everything in the world suddenly makes sense.”
Founder and Creative Director of Story Of Your Day, Emma Wilson, is one of Europe’s leading female wedding videographers and a passionate storyteller and filmmaker.
Throughout the whole process we’ll work together on your vision and combine that with my years of experience in the industry.
I pride myself on my philosophy of ‘integrity without compromise’ and work hard to achieve the highest level of excellence throughout the whole experience.

We were so excited to have a Switzerland wedding and this day meant so much to us, and that’s why we chose Emma, out of all the wedding videographers we looked at, we thought Emma was the best at filming stories. We wanted someone to create a wedding video capturing those precious moments that photos simply cannot. We absolutely loved her creativity and editing style in telling our story. Emma masterfully captured elements of our special day and created a timeless masterpiece of our love story and the joy on our wedding day.
– Devon + Sven, Grand Hotel, Giessbach
I watch my wedding video every night before bed just so I can feel like a bride again. Emma retold the story of my day and portrayed it as even more beautiful than I remember it being. There were things I’d forgotten happened and our wedding films brought them back to life again. This truly was the best decision I made regarding my destination wedding in Switzerland.
– Shahad + Abdullah, Fairmont Le Montreux Palace
“Our wedding story and film is absolutely beautiful. To be able to share our intimate destination wedding with our friends back home in Australia means so much to us. And we couldn’t be happier with it and Emma’s dedication to telling our story. All our friends and family said watching the film made them feel they were actually with us on the day. ”

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.
SWISS WEDDING EXPERTISE
I know that looking for suppliers ‘on location’ can sometimes be quite daunting. So you’ll be relieved to hear that Story Of Your Day is multi-award-winning and the recommended wedding film company for many reputable venues across Switzerland as well as being the preferred wedding videographer for Switzerland Tourism.
I have also built up fantastic relationships with local venues, planners, celebrants and florists and been described here as a ‘pioneer Swiss wedding filmmaker’ due to my cinematic storytelling-style – hard to come by in Switzerland!
I absolutely love filming stories and all types of wedding and I treat each one with the same passion – whether it’s an elopement, an intimate boutique wedding, or an extravagent luxury affair.
While I am primarily a wedding videographer I also offer wedding photography for intimate weddings, elopements and proposals and have a network of awesome associate wedding photographers too.
SWISS ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS, PROPOSALS AND ELOPEMENT VIDEOGRAPHY
You might be considering an elopement or intimate destination wedding here… I don’t blame you. It’s as though Switzerland was made for these types of wedding stories!
Eloping in Switzerland can be an opportunity for adventure with just the two of you or with your best friends or closest family members as witnesses and guests.
In the past few years I’ve become the go-to Swiss wedding filmmaker for elopement weddings, pre-wedding shoots and surprise proposals.

SWISS WEDDING DESTINATIONS
There’s one thing you can count on in Switzerland … as a country for a destination wedding story, you’re spoilt for choice so let me share some of my favourite places for a wedding film location.
For luxury and the sublime then Suvretta House in St Moritz is high up in the Alps, Fairmont Le Montreux Palace sits on the shores of Lake Geneva and the Schweizerhof Hotel & Spa is located in the centre of my favourite city, Bern.
The Grandhotel Geissbach is reached by boat on Lake Brienz with the most spectacular waterfall, for a castle venue then there’s amazing views across neighbouring Lake Thun from Schlöss Oberhofen.
The Bernese Oberland offers one of the most perfect settings for an elopement or intimate wedding, which is Lake Blausee in the Kander Valley. For those seeking an adventure wedding then how about where I live, in the Jungfrau Region where the north face of the Eiger, the Mönch and Jungfrau mountains are perfect backdrops for your wedding ceremony.
