Leicestershire Funeral Videographers - All Saints Church Dunton Bassett

Today I was at All Saints Church in the small village of Dunton Bassett, Leicestershire to film the funeral and celebration of Brian’s Life. I arrived nice and early, so had the opportunity to meet the magnificent Shire Horses that would carry Brian on his final journey to All Saints church. Truly incredible animals.

Once family and friends had gathered, everyone walked with the hearse, horses and Brian to the church where tributes were shared by friends and family. A really beautiful morning and an absolute privilege to be asked to film the service.

It was really nice to be working with R.C. Weston & Son Funeral Directors who always very kindly recommend us to so many of their families. You guys are incredible at what you do :)

All Saints Church and South West Middlesex Crematorium Funeral Photographer, London

On a wet and windy day, the friends and family of Joan arrived at All Saints Church in Hampton, London to celebrate her life. All Saints is a very beautiful and friendly church. Whilst setting up one of the ladies made me a nice cup of tea and showed me around. Soon freinds and family arrived and made their way into the Church as the dark clouds rolled in. Just as the Hearse arrived the heavens really opened up and the rain came down really hard.

The rain was relentless as Joan’s coffin was carried into the church. I managed to find a relatively dry spot under a tree where I could take photos from. The tributes led by the family were really beautiful and once the service was over we headed off to South West Middlesex Crematorium (Hanworth Crematorium) for the final blessings.

Poetic Endings Summer Party 2019 - Linden House, London

Poetic Endings Summer Party 2019 - Linden House, London

It was lovely to join Louise and her team from Poetic Endings at Linden house last week for their 2019 Summer Party. Louise set up Poetic Endings just 2 years ago in 2017 and in this short time her work with bereaved families has made an incredible impact throughout London and beyond. I’ve had the privilege of working with her on several funerals recently and so I was thrilled when she invited me to come and photograph their get-together at Linden House. There are lots of photos, but here are just a few of my favourites from the party. Enjoy!!

Funeral Live Streaming in Cheshire, Nantwich at St Johns the Evangelist Church

I was asked to Live-stream this funeral for a family in Cheshire. This was a little different and much more complex than my usual live-streaming events. Usually I live-stream funerals to friends and family abroad, who are unable to attend for whatever reason. However, this funeral was to be live-streamed a mere 100m away to two separate overflow rooms in a Church Hall across a busy main road on to two screens. This was due to the amount of mourners attending and the Church being unable to fit everyone in. There was a lot of setting up early in the morning, but it was worth it as we maned to ensure that over 600 people were able to take part in what was a really lovely celebration of life.

It was great working with Tom Pearson from Derby Sound Productions on this project. True gent and look forward to working with you on similar projects in the future.

Thank you both for all your hard work yesterday. Really excellent result as confirmed by lots of people who were able to view and hear the funeral in full. Everything worked perfectly.

Will Sern Ong's Memorial Service - Swansea Funeral Videographer

Its been a while since I’ve written about any of the funerals I film and photograph as i’ve been so busy travelling all over the UK working with so many beautiful families.

A couple of days ago I was asked by Swansea university to film a Memorial Service at Argyle and Rhydding’s Park Presbyterian Church in Swansea, Wales on behalf the family of a student who had passed away. Wil was 21 Years of age and died just after running the Swansea half Marathon due to heart complications. His family are in Malaysia, so the film of his memorial service was captured as many of them were unable to travel across to the UK. More about his story can be found here on the BBC News Website.

Wil was a hugely inspiring, energetic young man. It was a real priviledge hearing all about his life and capturing these moments as friends and family paid tribute to his short yet amazing life.
