Pretty Little Films
Memories are like treasure chests full of precious moments that we keep close to our hearts, and we know that only too well. We also have our own story of how the journey to Pretty Little Films began and here it is....It all started back in 2012 when Cheryl and Kai bumped into one another 10 years on after high school. This was when our love story began and everything changed, our happy memories would start from here! Kai got down on one knee on Christmas Eve 2013 and we then started to plan our very own wedding, until the travel bug took over and we made the decision to postpone our big day and head off to travel the world together. We sold everything, moved out our first home, left our jobs and headed out on a one way flight to Vietnam, with only our backpacks and each other....and a GoPro!! This small Go Pro ended up becoming very important to us, as we decided to document our travels and started to turn our memories and experiences into film! As we sat and watched back all these precious moments, playing them over and over with all these amazing happy times coming flooding back to us, we knew then that we wanted to give this kind of happiness to others, and what better way than to capture such special memories of couples wedding days!After nearly 3 years of travelling, we returned home to Scotland in June 2017 and put everything we had into setting up Pretty Little Films. We took the jump to go fully self employed and done our first wedding in August 2017 and we haven’t looked back since. We have the best job in the world! It has come with massive challenges; as a business we are constantly overcoming hurdles, striving continuously to develop in all areas, whether it be studying and practicing new filming techniques in our spare time to gaining a PFCO CAA approved drone licence to offer that little bit more for our couples. One of the biggest challenges (but also most amazing) for us was our baby girl Ada arriving in March 2018, just before our first full wedding season started! Of course being new first time parents comes with massive learning curves and lots and lots of sleepless nights! But having our daughter has only made us realise even more, how important all these small moments in life really are! At Pretty Little Films we always aim to ensure every couple receive the wedding film they have always dreamt of. Every couples love story is special to them in their own way. Basing our business around this thought, we always make sure each of our wedding films are different and unique to suit each of our couples, ensuring those little specifics that each couple have are captured and incorporated into their films. From point of booking, we always try our best to meet our couples in person at least once before their wedding. To produce the best film possible we feel we need to get to know our couple before hand and it also helps them to get to know us! We offer our couples an, All Day Package, with no hidden extras, inclusive of 2 camera operators from bridal preparations all the way through to the first three dances at their evening reception. We feel by offering this package to our couples, we are able to tell the perfect Love Story from start to finish! We feel blessed that we have the best job in the world and are so proud of what we have achieved. Starting up Pretty Little Films was a very important and exciting point in our lives together, as this marked the start of us following our dreams to creating unforgettable and timeless films! Giving the gift of happy tears, strives us to deliver the best of our ability time and time again for our couples!
