The beautiful sparkly Oaklands The Grand Lodge
Hello, I'm Maxine! I am based in the North West of England, up near Manchester. Over the last few years I have found a love for videography and more recently creating beautiful wedding films has become a big passion of mine. This year I decided to follow my dreams, and after 10 years, I left my job as a secondary school teacher to pursue a full-time career in film making. A risky and tough design, but one I whole-heartedly do not regret.
When I am not filming, you can usually find me outside, on a beach or up a mountain! I love to travel. My recent holidays have included USA, Thailand, Iceland, Cambodia, Australia and even staying on a desert island in Tonga! I am also very competitive, I love to play sport! I play netball for a local team, as well as a love for hiking and exploring. I am very close to my family and friends and adore playing with my niece and nephew!
It can be quite daunting being on camera, and for most people it can be a BIG NO NO! However, my approach to filming your day is to be as discreet as possible. No big cameras, or mics. No telling you what to do or where to stand. I will blend into the background so that you will not even know I am there! My aim on the day is to capture the moments of pure joy, happiness and laughter. The raw emotion and natural reactions of you and your guests. I will then create a film that showcases your wedding day in the most romantic, emotive and natural way.
For me, there is no better feeling than being able to create a beautiful and memorable film for a couple. Along with this, I get to make new friends in the process! A wedding is such a special day. I feel lucky to be part of such an incredible industry and I am honoured I get to witness and capture moments that people will treasure forever.
“Maxine is a truly wonderful videographer. I have worked with her on shoots I have planned and coordinated, and getting the right videographer to capture the day is so important. Maxine did not disappoint, she was on time, with full gear. She had a friendly bubbly personality which instantly made us all feel comfortable and relaxed. She filmed a beautiful romantic story. Her creativity is beyond exceptional and I was lucky to work with her and watch her move around the set capturing delicate details. Watching the full film was amazing! She captured all those important details you would otherwise miss or forget about, as well as editing to make it a beautiful love story. Maxine was a pleasure to work with and any couple would be incredibly lucky to have her film their wedding. She would be sure to capture your day in all it’s beauty for you to look back on for memories to last forever!
Thanks so much, Maxine for a truly wonderful film.

Maxine filmed our wedding a few years ago, before she started videography as a career, and she was even brilliant back then! We have recently just done another shoot with her and I am so glad we did. We just love her work, her video makes us cry every time I watch it. Both our families wanted copies of the film and I love that we can now watch it whenever we want. We love showing our children too. Maxine always seems to capture the most romantic, intimate moments, we just love it!

I love to meet new people! Not only is it special that I get to film at a couples wedding, it is important to me to form that bond with my couples. To make lasting friendships with each one.
