Andrea and Becs spent 10 years as TV directors before having children and taking the difficult decision to give up a career they loved and risk everything on a new business venture! Having directed lots of BBC3 and MTV programmes they knew from experience that people are more comfortable being filmed by people that they knew - weddings were a no brainer! With an interest free credit card they booked a stand at the National Wedding Show and the rest is history!
In September 2011, Andrea and Becs took Shoot It Yourself to the national stage when they appeared on the BBC programme Dragons Den and successfully walked away with investment from Hilary Devey.
From Dragons' Den to new additions to the Shoot It Yourself family, the last 6 years have definitely been a whirlwind! We now produce over 300 awesome wedding videos a year from our lovely offices in the Cotswolds and with a staff of 10 fabulous editors and customer service managers, we're definitely the busiest, and happiest mumpreneurs in town!
Shoot It Yourself came about after we (Andrea and Becs) decided to give up our careers as TV directors. We were both planning our weddings at the time and were surprised to find that there weren't many wedding videographer's making fun, personal and unique videos!
Since our launch in 2009 we are proud to have been nominated for some of the most pretigious awards in the world of weddings and business!
As a small business, our number one priority is delivering top class customer service. The happier we make you, the more likely you are to recommend us! Check out what our customers have to say about their experience with us on our testimonials page!
