Welcome

Anyone can give you a wedding video... but only we can tell your wedding story

01. MY philosophy

You've found your way here because a friend told you all about us or else you've been searching the internet for a unique filmmaker who can capture the hopes and dreams you have for your wedding day.

You don't want a boring, old wedding video. You definitely don't want anything that's cheesy.  And you definitely don't want to spend the day acting out awkward love scenes for the camera.

If you're still reading, I think you agree that real moments are special moments. And it takes a special kind of filmmaker and storyteller to craft them moments into a film about your day that feels timeless... and priceless.

Know that I'm getting to know you, welcome to my site and I hope you will take the time to get to know me...

WEDDING STORY

02. mORE ABOUT MAURICE

It's my job as a documentary filmmaker to capture the feeling of your day with real moments as they happen. 

No posing. No performing for camera. No fuss. I simply allow you to enjoy your wedding day with your family and friends while I remain invisible in the backgrounds; watching and listening to all the things that make you and your wedding unique. 

I am a filmmaker. My films have played in cinemas in Ireland, the UK, and America but I never turn your wedding day into a film set. Again, I am invisible.

MY PHILOSOPHY

GREAT PEOPLE make great weddings

I'm not perfect though. I tend to let myself down if you have a chocolate fountain. I drench the marshmallows and I always get some on my shirt. Other than that, I'm thoroughly professional.

I take on a selective amount of weddings each year in the UK and Ireland.

If you think we make a good fit for each other then I would love to tell your Wedding Story.
