This afternoon we’re introducing you to a new Sponsor of ours that offers the most important keepsakes from a wedding day – photography and videography.
That’s right, the fabulously talented team at Manchester-based Squashed Apple can capture the real essence and emotion of a couple’s big day both in images and footage, providing memories that last a lifetime and with the power to transport brides and grooms back to that very moment in time.
If this sounds right up your street you might be interested to know that Squashed Apple will throw in £1,300 worth of albums and presentation for free for every Brides Up North reader that books their full day photography and full wedding film packages.
Now to tell us more about their style of shooting, we’ll hand over the blog to one of the Squashed Apple team. Take it away Carlo…
Tell us a little about your background ?
carlo says: I have been in this industry for around nine years and fell into photography by accident really. A friend needed a hand on a wedding and simply passed me a camera, well that was it – I was sold – and filming was a natural progression. I wanted to create a brand, which was not only affordable but offered fantastic value for money. I’m a believer that every couple should have access to our services and it’s this customer focus that has seen us sustain more than 100 weddings for the last seven consecutive years.
What attracted you to the wedding industry specifically?
I love weddings, in fact if I wasn’t doing this I would be a wedding planner. It’s an amazing life event that has everything; they are fun, sad, joyful and emotional. I find there is so much going on in a wedding day that can make you an amazing creator.
And what is it about your job that you love?
Well apart from being your own boss, it gives you the freedom to create, plus tonnes of family time.
How would you describe your style of wedding photography/videography?
Squashed Apple brings collectively everything to the table. We’ve never had a set style, but I believe it’s important to be able to adapt and present something that suits the couple. I believe it’s important to engage with a brides of all ages, therefore I don’t really believe in styled shoots or using models. I want to keep it real. We can have just as much fun with a bride approaching 60-years-old as a bride in her twenties. Our oldest bride last year was 72 – so cute!
