An inspirational two days of complete immersion into all things wedding video!!
Nearly Two years on from the launch of my online course I’m pleased to announce a brand new ‘face to face’ workshop. My first since 2018.
My aim is to go one step further than my online course and dig deeper into the skills needed to run a highly successful videography company.
Echoing my previous ‘beating heart’ workshops I’ve compiled a curriculum of presentations and film deconstructions designed to highlight the key aspects that you should be mastering. Not only will we cover the important skills needed to film and edit a wedding but we’ll take a huge look at my business framework and how it proves to be the difference between success and failure.

Where can I find out more about the venue?
Does it matter if I’ve already purchased your online Masterclass?
No, obviously much of what I’ll say will be covered in both but we’re building a fresh set of lectures that will go deeper than the masterclass.
Do we need to bring cameras?
They’re not essential but you can bring one if you like. You just need something to make notes really.
I’m very new to this. Does this matter?
Not at all. We’ve had dozens of completely new starters come to the workshops in the past and they’ve really benefited from them.
What time does it start / end?
Both days will run from 10am till 6pm with lunch and breaks in between.
