Alessandra and Owen got married in style at the Houses of Parliament in central London. Working as a wedding videographer at this location is both an honour and a challenge.
Prior to heading to the venue itself, I started my day filming the preparations. Alessandra was surrounded by little ones, who were in awe of the bride! I captured some tender moments including opening her first wedding gift.
I then went on to film the essential “interviews”. It was hilarious to hear two very different sides of a story which involved meeting in a kebab shop! I spliced together both Alessandra’s story and Matt’s, who was already waiting at the venue.

The ceremony itself was a very light-hearted event. We were already up against the public, and Owen decided to carry his baby daughter while he said his vows! It was a very sweet moment. She behaved very well indeed.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds took a stroll around the galleries. With this being a December wedding, they stopped to pose outside a huge Christmas tree – great for still image photography as well!
We braved the outdoor chill to get some integral shots on Westminster Bridge and in front of the London Eye. As guests mingled in the pub opposite, it wasn’t long before the iconic Routemaster rolled in.
Reception at the Royal Inn on the Park
A giggly bus journey over to Hackney saw us arriving at the Royal Inn on the Park. Owen’s little girl didn’t leave his side the whole time! I filmed more guests mingling before the speeches began.
Owen and Alessandra shared a very joyous moment over the cake-cutting, grinning from ear to ear. This worked really well with the upbeat music I added during post-production. I snuck the pair off for some more photos in the Christmas trees outside, before they enjoyed a sparkler welcome from their guests.
Owen and Alessandra are no wallflowers. They both got up to perform, in English and in Alessandra’s native Italian! After the festivities died down, I took them both to one side separately for some post-wedding interviews.
Again, their baby girl never left Owen’s side. He joked about how late Alessandra was and how relieved he was when she finally arrived! The bride was equally thrilled with the day. I finished the clip with a touching quote from Owen, who said he looked forward to watching it back on their golden anniversary.
