WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER & STORYTELLER

I'm Meryll de Gordon,

I’m a destination wedding videographer based in France. I put all my heart and my energy into creating unique and different films.

By using the cinema’s visual and narrative codes, framing techniques and editing, I create artistic and cinematic wedding films. I love to get to know my couples, understanding who they are and what makes them so different so I can craft a unique film. It is not just about shooting what happens during the wedding day, but more being the eye that reveals their singularity.

I'll travel all over the world, as long as you are a bit crazy, like having fun, and want something different [...]

A good wedding films is not just about images, but powerful storytelling.

WEDDING FILMS WITH STORIES

We all have a story to tell. You are getting married abroad, and you want this day to be filmed to show your families and friends all that happened, because you want it to be saved, as it should be. But as a destination wedding videographer whose interests are people and what make them unique, my vision is slightly different.

Firstly, you, as a couple or individual, are unique, and you build together something singular that is your story. There is much more to show than only what happened during your wedding day. My work is going beyond what most of the couples generally expect. Have a look at this destination wedding in Italy (Tropea, Calabria) in the Journal.

Secondly, it’s just like going to the cinema at the precise moment when the hero wins the game and is exalts in the climax; but would you understand why he had to fight to win this game?

Thirdly, and most importantly, you deserve your story to be told, and you have this great opportunity to have someone do a destination wedding video for you, so why not jump on board and get a much more emotional film by telling your story? THAT would be a real souvenir for your families, friends, and children. My packages include a storytelling work highlighting a part of your story related to your wedding. Contact me for more information.

Fresh traveller eyes

You’re planning your destination wedding abroad, and you’re wondering what wedding videographer to hire. Here is the dilemma : local vs out-or-area / destination wedding videographer. As a destination wedding videographer travelling the world to capture love, I can tell the way we do our job is totally different when we travel out of area.

 

FRESH EYES

Doing destination weddings helps us not to slip into a routine or shoot each wedding similarly. When I shoot in a brand new location, I put all my energy into creating something really different, innovative and creative. My storytelling is undoubtedly different, I have THIS fresh vision. As if I were an adventurer, super excited to bring home new images, tell a unique story, and capture the very special trip that my couples planned.

MORE THAN JUST THE WEDDING DAY

Since my minimum travel time is 3 days, I have this insatiable desire to explore and document new places. It really enhances my creativity. I remember this nice couple Nat & Jum who got married in Thailand. I spent 5 days with them and had the time to document their daily life, we got to know each other. In the end, their film was much richer in images and emotion.

FAQ

WHAT DEFINES YOUR STYLE?

I have a clearly defined cinematographic filming style. Ambient sounds, voices and music hold significant places in my work. They enrich the storytelling and reveal the depth of the emotions. Each of my destination wedding films is edited differently with a backdrop story I create as a reflection of the bond that unites my couples. None of this would be possible without taking the time to get to know my clients and knowing what defines them as a couple. Every detail counts, and when put together, they translate into video what I have in mind before shooting.

DO YOU WORK ALONE?

Most of the time, yes, I'm a solo destination wedding videographer. Sometimes I work with one or two other second shooters when the couple preparations take place in different locations, when the number of guests is significant, or simply when the bride and groom wish for more shots from different angles.

HOW FAR ARE YOU TRAVELING ?

Since I love to travel, discover new cultures, new places and bring back amazing images, I have no limits for destination weddings. Nowadays, couples need to escape, create different, innovative and unbridled weddings abroad, far from the usual constraints. So I travel everywhere in the world and speak English & French. I've recently been in Marrakesh, New-York, Bangkok or Costa Rica to cover beautiful weddings. I'm looking forward to travelling farther !

HOW DO YOU WORK ?

I love to take the time to connect with my couples, their guests, and providers on the morning of the day of, by arriving ahead of time. This time is also precious to me so that I can locate places, choose the best angles, and anticipate the unexpected. Extra hours are not charged, because I know that your schedule is often flexible. As a destination wedding videographer, the value of my work is created on the day of, and as a result, I don't complete a shoot without being sure I have captured the images I need.
As each couple has a story to tell, I work on each of my projects without looking at my watch. The main thing is the quality of the result, no matter if I shoot a wedding in Italy, Spain, Greece, Thailand, Vietnam f.e. From the selection of the clips to the choice of music or the writing of stoytelling, I pay particular attention to details, because when added together, they really make all the difference.

WHAT DO YOUR PACKAGES INCLUDE?

For each of my wedding packages, I offer a collection of two films, with a unique and emotional impact: the Trailer, edited with the codes used in cinema: editing, color grading, storytelling, music and dynamics. This non-linear and artistic film is perfect to relive your events. There is no better format than this one to share the essentials of your beautiful day with your loved ones. A 15 min. long film, chronologically edited, mixing ambient sounds, rhythmic music and dynamic shots to dive into this day.

WHAT OPTIONS DO YOU OFFER?

I offer to cover the day before and/or the brunch on the day after, all these magical moments out of the wedding are really important in my work. In addition to the trailer and the long film, I can edit the video of the complete ceremony, a video containing all the speeches, and I also offer additional shooters and other à la carte options.

HOW CAN WE BOOK YOU?

Before you book, we have to make sure we click. I always offer my future bride and groom and the opportunity to meet face-to-face, wether in person or via Skype. It allows us to get to know each other, to discuss what is important to you and what defines you as a couple. If the feeling is right, I then send you all the booking details. I remain available until the wedding in order to elaborate further the details of the collaboration with you.
