Hello, I'm Hayley; film maker, creative live-wire, mummy,
wife and the person behind Forever Footage Wedding films and videography.
Chapter 1 : where it all started.
My love for story telling started when I was 7, tapping away fantasies about fairies, toadstools and dragonflies whilst listening to classical music.
At high school, I dreamt of being a film director but never had
the confidence to make the leap to London and leave my family.
Chapter 2: Soul mates
It wasn't until I met my husband, photographer Tom Evans (AKA Photo Logique)
that my dreams started turning into reality.
quite quickly, tom & I started producing short films and
visual content for fun and for small businesses.
Things took off, bookings soared. then tom popped the question. Of course, I said "YES".
Our wedding was romantic and over too fast.
I have vague memories but hands up, champaign got the better of me.
My biggest regret from our wedding day, not getting a video made.
Chapter 3: dreams do come true
With a little help from my amazing husband and the support from friends and family to babysit our toddler, I learnt the technical skills to operate a number of cameras, taught myself how to edit and that was that! 5 years later, I'm now filming weddings across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Wales, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and further afield.
As a bonus, I get to re-live my wedding day each time I work, I help make
memories last forever and I get to work with some
fantastic people, including my husband.
I might not be a Hollywood film director (yet), but coming from a small town in the West Midlands, I truly believe dreams can come true if you follow your heart.
Thank you for reading and for getting to know me. I look forward to getting to know you.
with love, forever, Hayley xx
