You’ll cherish your wedding video for all the years to come. Larissa, the face behind the camera for Videography by Larissa, says: “I honestly believe there is nothing more beautiful than capturing the special day of a couple.

“From the eerie silence in the morning when the sun comes up and the couple get out of bed, to the rising tension and nerves in the moments before the ceremony, the happiness and love on everybody’s faces when the couples read their vows and finally the unrestrained celebrations when all the official parts are done and the newlyweds mix with their guests on the dance floor until the early morning.

“It doesn’t get much better than being allowed to capture all these amazing emotions and create a lasting memory of the best day of someone’s life which they can watch whenever they want.

“Couples often comment on how watching the video puts them right back to the day, experiencing the excitement and anticipation all over again. It also gives them the opportunity to share their day with friends and family members who weren’t able to attend the day in person.

“So if you are in two minds about booking a videographer, do it! I promise you, you won’t regret it.”

Book or make an enquiry with Videography by Larissa ahead of your big day.

The pair, both talented jewellers, met at Gray’s School of Art and have been together ever since.

Lava Jewellery specialises in wedding jewellery (engagement and wedding rings) but the specialists can also make bespoke pieces in house, whether that’s adding a special diamond or incorporating a treasure from a loved one into your jewel.
