Member Focus – Wedding Supplier Partner – The Big Day 360
We are delighted to introduce you to wedding supplier partner member The Big Day 360 who produce luxury wedding videos in stunning 360 degrees of vision.
How did it all start?
Having worked in the fashion industry for most of my life, both as a designer (often specializing in “Mother of the Bride”), and more recently as a Personal Shopper and Stylist, I have developed a keen eye for detail and a love of building relationships with clients.
My husband, who I met at Art College, is responsible for the technical side of the business, has worked as both a television editor and producer. What he loves most about his work is developing new technologies.
The Big Day 360 came about in 2015 after filming my brother’s wedding in Singapore in 360 video. We then presented it to them in a bespoke 360 Album, which my husband had developed originally for a very different purpose.
When viewed by both the Bride and Groom and family and friends who couldn’t make it to the wedding, everyone said they felt they were back there, reliving the day.
The truly amazed reactions we got made it obvious to us that 360 video is a perfect match for weddings.
Do you have a favourite venue?
My favourite venue has to be Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire. The excitement begins to build the moment you start to approach along its magnificent long drive. Then glimpsing the house itself in all its grandeur is fantastic.
How would clients describe you?
Friendly, professional and unobtrusive.
Wedding planners or suppliers you particularly admire?
We have had the privilege of working closely with Katrina Otter.
Her flair, meticulous planning and management are outstanding, and the fact that she always seems serene and always has time for you, are enviable.
How do you unwind?
We are lucky enough to live close to Kew Gardens. We love ending a long summer’s day on one of their picnic benches beneath a magnificent tree with a bottle of wine and a picnic. Truly magical.
What trends are you seeing for 2017/18?
Utilizing 360 degree video to capture weddings!
What is your signature dish?
Roast chicken with all the trimmings.
Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love work on?
The wedding, albeit fictional, I would most like to capture in 360 video would be The Great Gatsby’s. Imagine the flamboyance and flair he would give it… It would be an occasion to remember and in 360 you would not miss a single detail!
What is your vice?
My secret pleasure is catching up with Coronation Street, not very exciting, but true!
