The Ned Wedding Video | Emma & Joe

Shot on location at The Ned, London | October 2021


I had such brilliant time with Emma & Joe on their wedding day & it was such a delight to put together my first The Ned Wedding Video. Theirs was a really wonderful wedding, it had style & glamour with some wonderful stories told against a beautiful back drop.

The Ned is a beautiful venue. Set in the former Midland Bank building, The Ned was designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1924 & is pure 1920s & 1930’s art deco. It’s smells of pure glamour.

I was delighted to work with my good friend Matt Wing on the day & we had a good time searching the halls of the venue & scouting locations. We started the day getting stuck in the lift on the way to see Emma for her prep, which was an auspicious start, but after a mild panic the day went smoothly after that!

I hope Emma & Joe, along with their friends & family, enjoy this film of their day. I loved putting together their Wedding Video & I thank them for their help & hospitality on the day.


How did you both meet?

16 year old Emma and Joe met via Myspace with an add from Joe! However didnt get together until a few months, (v.messy NYE party which Emma didnt tell her parents she was holding and was grounded for a while…) on Valentines day!

Why The Ned?

We had always wanted to get married in the city, we love everything about it! When you walk into the Ned you cannot not fall in love with how beautiful it was! We looked at 2 including the Ned, the Ned was first and then my heart was set on it! (Sorry Joe Bridezilla in the making!)

What’s your first song & why?

At last by Etta James.
In lockdown on 30 May 2020, on Joe’s birthday we were sitting in the sun, keeping everything crossed that we could actually get married in October 2021, Magic soul was on, and we were thinking of songs we’d like for our first dance after booking OJ’s soul band and it came on, we both looked at each other and said ‘this is it!’ I cant listen to that song without getting Goosebumps now!

Why did you choose me?

My Brother and Sister-in-Law had you for their wedding at Gaynes Park in 2018 and I knew we had to too!
