Our Story Photo Shoot in Florida Our 10th Anniversary Weva Award Magazine Cover Training Hard At Work IOV

Let me take you back to 2002. After 5 years at university, studying Art History and Film Studies, I am about to graduate and wondering what to do with the rest of my life. Having recently got married to my high school sweet heart Niels, the happy memories of the wedding and a mind set on film, I had a light bulb moment: let’s make wedding films! The rest, as they say, is history.

With the help of the dashing husband, my idea quickly grew into one of the UK’s top wedding film companies. But not content with just capturing this island’s hearts, we set our ambitions even higher and soon became internationally acclaimed event film makers. Ever After is the only UK company that has not only won several highly coveted WEVA Creative Excellence Awards in the past few years, but has also given seminars at the annual WEVA Convention. We were also the only UK company to be listed as a finalist to the EventDV Top25 of Hottest and Most Influential Event Filmmakers in the World!

At any moment in our 10 year history, our lovely bride and grooms have always been and always will be at the heart of Ever After. We want to give you the best possible wedding film experience we can imagine. With that in mind, we make sure we stay at the top of our game: we were pioneers in the UK when it came to Same Day Edits and “Short-form” wedding films, we attend many national and international conventions, are constantly learning, gathering ideas and making them our own. We're proud that fellow videographers are now coming to us for training and workshops.
