Exhibitors Spotlight - Rob Taylor

Holding onto the one day you shared with loved ones, is a  priority on many couples wedding list. Photography always seem an obvious choice. The film captures a second of those moments. To have those memories looped together and played back for you to remember is like you are revisiting that day. Rob Taylor specialises is providing this service for you in a unique and sympathetic style.
 Rob caught up with us, sharing  his enjoyments of working for himself.

 

How did you come up with your business idea?

I have always had a passion for still images but felt there was an opportunity to create more beautiful wedding video than has been produced in years gone by, with a little inspiration taken from the more rustic feel of those old home-movies.

 

Whats the best thing about working for yourself?

This morning I received a card from a bride and groom who were absolutely delighted with their wedding film and the way I had captured it. They are looking forward to watching it in years to come to be reminded of their wedding day – I can't put a price on the happiness I feel when getting such lovely feedback.

 

What tune do you put on to get you ready for the day?

I don't think I have one tune, but something upbeat :)

 

What do you most love about weddings?

The atmosphere and the buzz from the bride and groom and their guests relaxing and the fact that everyone is always having such a lovely time.

 

If you could invite any person, who would you invite as your plus one to a wedding?

Having a girlfriend, I should probably ask her, but when I'm filming I love the freedom to keep moving and recording the day as it unfolds.

 

Who do you admire most in the industry?

I admire all of the professional equally who create such beautifully crafted products for their clients – the decorations, the cakes, the invitations and stationery, and the dress – I probably have most in common with the photographer on the day, so their efforts shouldn't be forgotten.

 

If you were not doing this job, what would you be doing?

I used to work in a photographic print lab, so I would probably still be doing that, but I wanted to be closer to the action and creativity.

 

English wedding or go abroad?

An English is obviously more convenient, but I'd love the opportunity to travel abroad and film. Wherever I am, though, I love to make best use of the light and the UK is a beautiful place to be.

 

DJ or band?

I prefer a band, but each has a time and place.

 

If you would like to view Rob's recent portfolio and speak to him about your big day, come this on Sunday 8th June at The Nostalgic Wedding Fair, Guildhall Winchester, Hampshire.
