The circumstances that brought us to Durham to celebrate with Clare, Tim, and their families were slightly unconventional. We actually didn’t get to meet them or talk to them before they booked us for their wedding. Instead, we met with Clare’s dad, George. He came to Wilmington to chat with us at our studio, where we shared stories about the film-making process, life, and Portugal. Apparently, George met his wife on a trip to Portugal and it was yet to be determined if the wedding would be held there or here in North Carolina. While we would have loved to experience a Portuguese wedding, we found Clare and Tim’s Durham winter wedding to be absolutely charming.
Even without meeting these two in person (we did have a chance to Skype with them before the wedding day), they made it so easy to do our job. We immediately felt at home once we arrived for the day…so much so that I went back out to my car to retrieve a laptop so the girls could listen to the new Beyonce album. (The disc was accidentally left in the computer, but has subsequently been mailed back to its owner!)
We also love the way the Super 8mm footage turned out in this film. It provides that perfect twinge of nostalgia that fits in seamlessly with the other wedding day footage! We especially love the shots with their get-a-way car!
It’s a cold day here on the coast and we hope Clare and Tim’s easy love warms your heart a bit today!
