Lao & Kit – The Natural History Museum

Earlier this year we were contacted by the talanted Seyi from Once Upon a Destination to possibly film a wedding at the Natural History Museum, we were very interested to know more!
The couple who were fortunate enough to be getting married at this unique venue wanted to meet with us first. We finally met with the bride Kit and her lovely Mother, we had a wonderful meeting and hit it off immediately.
We were excited that we were going to film the biggest day of their lives. The Natural History Museum is one of the most unique venues in London, it has History, Beauty, Architecture and the most well known Dinosaur in London ;-)
Kit & Lao had a fabulous religious Ceremony in a Church just off the Kings Rd, the ceremony was very moving and uplifting. Kit and Lao were surrounded by all the
people that matter the most to them in the world, the music in the church was a full Gospel Choir and a soloist with the voice of an angel!

After the beutiful romantic ceremony, all the guests headed off to the Natural History Museum for Canapes and Champagne, before a sumptuous full sit down meal, this was followed by dancing and wonderful music until the early hours!
We wish Kit and Lao a wonderful marriage, blessed with happiness and fortune for many years to come. The love between Kit and Lao was very obvious for all to see, which makes our job very rewarding. We hope you enjoy this small trailer we produced especially for Kit & Lao.

Julia Boggio Studios Promo Films

The films we just shot for Julia Boggio Studios came out of a chance meeting at the Launch of the Oscar de la Renta’s
trunk show in the heart of the West End. The original conversation was very relaxed and “yes we would love to shoot
something for you” just let us know when!

A couple of weeks later an email arrived with all the details, the shoot was to held at the Old Belt Factory
and all the details were to be top secret. We are really happy to share with you the magic we created and the
Super work of the Talented Perfectionist that is Julia Boggio launching her three new Studio Concepts.

The shoot itself was so much fun, but the purpose was to create films to highlight what you could be doing in your spare
time, pop along to Julia’s Studios and have beautiful portraits taken and have fun at the same time :-)

The Savoy Hotel Styled Shoot for Genevieve Magazine

The “Savoy” Hotel one like no other, steeped in history and intrigue. What a privilege to be asked to film a beautiful Styled shoot for one of the biggest Editorials in Nigeria “Genevieve”.
The style of the Shoot was ultimately Hollywood Glamour, encompassing all the luxury that goes with this particular period. Reds, golds, and pink Hues set against Diamonds and Pearls.
The Beautiful models wore Exquisite Couture Wedding Gowns by the very talented Yemi at Kosibah, The gowns were the perfect silhouette for this luxurious Shoot.
The whole shoot was orchestrated by the talented and human Dynamo that is Seyi of “Once upon a Destination” the company that provides Wedding and Event Planning to the worlds most dicerning clients.
When filming we wanted to create a film of two halves, we wanted to capture the fun and flirtatious nature of the era but also to capture the style and slick glamour with classic shapes and silhouettes that was also very evident of the period.
We loved filming this particular Venue and all the Vendors involved were just a joy to work with, and we thank them for there time and cooperation in making this film simply beautiful. If you would like an information regarding our Vendors please contact us.
