It was such a privilege to film Williams Memorial Service at Canford Crematorium in Bristol a few weeks ago. It was a really cold wet day, as can be expected at this time of year. The rain was plentiful when I arrived but luckily stopped just in time for the Hearse and guests as they arrived.

Today I was at Grenoside Crematorium in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in what felt like a warm spring day. This was my first visit here, so a new Crematorium for me. After a quick chat with the friendly team I was ready and set up for Ethan’s Funeral. There was a festival theme the the ceremony with everyone wearing bright colourful clothing and viking helmets to celebrate his life. There was music, dancing and some amazing tributes to this young mans life. An absolute privilege to be there as a Funeral Videographer to capture this event. Thank you to the whole family for having me.

Memorial Slideshow - Mark -February 2019

It was an absolute privilege to create this Slideshow for Mark who is terminally ill and wanted to leave a thank you message to all those special people in his life.

One of the amazing things about my work is that I get a glimpse into peoples lives in a way that I wouldn't have normally. This always reminds me to make the most of every moment with those around me.

So here’s to Mark, a brave man with a terminal illness who wanted to say a special thank you to all those amazing people in his life. Thank you for reminding me of how important those people that make up our experiences and memories really are. Something we so often take for granted.

Clacton Cemetery & Christ Church United Reformed Church, Essex - February 2019

It was a long journey to this beautiful part of the country for a Funeral in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex. The family had asked us to cover both video and Photography for the whole day. This included the Hearse arriving at the Family Home, the Church service, the burial at Clacton Cemetery and the Wake. It was a really busy day for me and my team (Roshni & Dave) with all the different locations and often very little time to pull our equipment down and set up again, whilst making sure we captured everything on behalf of the family. Luckily the weather was on our side with nice blue sky’s which was especially good when we were outside for the Burial at Clacton Cemetery. So here are a few photos of the day, with the aim of giving you an idea for what we do. A huge thank you to the family for inviting us and making us feel so welcome on the day.
