It's not very often that we have the opportunity to spend a day drooling over a collection of motorbikes and it's even rarer that we get to base our film around a couple's their shared love of motorbikes!

From we first met Diane and Dougie we just knew their wedding was going to be special. Aside from the pair getting married it hardly followed a normal wedding ceremony at all! Opting to take two separate days to spread their wedding across made the whole experience have a really chilled and easy going vibe. On their wedding day we were surprised at how quickly the ceremony flew by, giving everyone plenty of time to just socialise, kick back, relax and just enjoy the day.
Strangely this is something we rarely get to see on wedding days as often a cram packed schedule keeps us on our toes, so this was a fantastic change of pace!

Diane and Dougie are a very genuine and sincere couple and we were made to feel really welcome when we had their photoshoot in their garden! Yes, that's right! Those really nice shots of the pair walking through the trees and sitting on the swing-bench is their garden!

The second day of Diane and Dougie's wedding celebrations weren't actually until three days after their ceremony! We definitely think holding off until Halloween night was a great idea to have a party! We've seen plenty of themed weddings before but this blew everyhting else we've seen out of the water. Yes, we might be slightly biased because Dougie has an absolutely stunning collection of motorbikes but the party itself was still undoubtedly one of the best atmosphere's we've experienced.
Again this was at their
house with live music, some incredible costumes (we're looking at you Evel Knieval!), and plenty of laughter and merry making!

Once we finished up filming those two days and headed back to our editing cave we began to think about how great it would be if we could build up a narrative about Diane and Dougie's shared love of motorbikes. It's how they met up believe it or not!
We quickly picked up the phone dialled their number and set about organising a third shoot day. And boy are we glad we did! Seeing and hearing the Victory rumble off down the driveway we just knew we'd made the right decision and we think their short film just wouldn't be the same without it.

All that's left to say is congrats to Diane and Dougie. You guys are great together!
