Location is a huge part of every wedding film — or any film for that matter. It plays a large role in setting the overall tone of the story and has the power to reflect the character’s personalities, emotions, and intentions. Such is the case for Sharon and Scott’s film, in which the Ancaster Mill’s atmospheric natural settings and warm, modern architecture provide the perfect backdrop for their small and intimate celebration.
We found ourselves gravitating towards the powerful waterfall that rips through the grounds, flowing through every major space at the Mill, and thus every scene.
The Ancaster Mill had actually played the setting for two of our earliest wedding films. Having grown a lot as cinematographers, filmmakers, and storytellers since those first few years, it was interesting to see which elements stuck out to us now and how we wanted to capture them to enhance Sharon and Scott’s film. Beyond the beautiful greenery, we found ourselves gravitating towards the powerful waterfall that rips through the grounds, flowing through every major space at the Mill, and thus every scene. Likewise, when establishing the waterfall, we wanted our shots to flow and move slowly through each setting that the water passes through, building anticipation as the music climbs and the edit story kicks off.
