I'm Meryll,

Wedding videographer based in France

My name is Meryll de Gordon, I am a wedding filmmaker and editor, English and French speaking.

I seem to have misplaced my first guitar, though I know it’s all thanks to that guitar that I am here today. As a songwriter and music composer, I stumbled into the world of movie making about 10 years ago.
I have a creative soul and a habit of imagining what everything around me would be like if I were to capture their story on film.

Sometimes I compose a tune, I close one eye and look at the world through the other. And just as if it were my camera lens, I imagine a scene and a decor. I take my inspiration from as far off ideas as I can, because being creative is not complicated, it just takes a different way of thinking and perceiving things.

I capture life moments, tears and laughter… I travel, I get inspired, I listen, I create… and then I take it all apart to tell a story as a film. I’m passionate about my job. I never stop learning, and I want to make each of my wedding films the best one that I have ever made.

If you are getting goosebumps already, no doubt we are looking for the same things and we are bound to get along.

The best kind of storytelling comes from the connection we build with people.

About us

My mission is to focus on people beyond any technical aspect. I sincerely believe a wedding film is a success when the filmmaker focuses on what makes the uniqueness of the individuals. My ambition is to create exclusive, artistic and inspiring films which highlight your emotions. I offer fair prices and only use high end innovative and often upgraded equipment.

You

I like stylish couples who live in harmony with their emotions and simply love life. My future newlyweds love my job, adhere to my style, and trust me. They give me carte blanche, allowing me to completely unleash my creativity. They know the importance of keeping memories alive, they have an eye for detail and they value our relationship. And above all, they are kind of cool!

Teaching Storytelling for filmmakers

After a few year doing wedding videography, we master our know-how, we have our style, our couples “love our films”, our friends like to tell us that we have “a real talent”. Everyone cam buy the same camera, get the same video look, but something will never go out of style, story. I specialized in storytelling because it became essential for me to include a part of the couple’s story in my films, otherwise they are just like empty shells.

I’ve created yearly workshops for wedding videographers who want to take their business to the next level by prioritizing pre-production over post production.

This 3-day workshop is available in French for now.

Travelling the world to document love stories

As a passionate wedding videographer, I find my inspiration in human connections every day. I love to travel as far as I can, and there is always something magical about sharing moments with new people in unfamiliar countries. It creates a strong connection and inevitably unforgettable memories. I truly loved getting to see these amazing places and people through my camera with fresh eyes, especially when I shoot destination weddings.

For couples who want to break the rules, go get married abroad in a place that really means something to you. I’ve recently shot 3-day wedding in Morocco, a stunning wedding in Italy, an intimate wedding in Mallorca, I spent one week with the couple for their wedding in Thailand, I also travelled for a wedding in Costa Rica, or Wedding Videography France.

Philosophy

The quality of a film depends on the relationship to the couple.

The relationship I build with couples is very important. I always meet them beforehand, and they confide in me, talk to me about what is important to their lives. Often, we become friends, we keep in touch with each other or meet again years later. Knowing them personally allows me to understand how to film them and deliver a unique wedding film true to their colors. All my wedding films are edited cheerfully, full of emotions, using artistic techniques that make them inspiring and different every time. I always look for new sources of inspiration, sometimes in the least expected and most unusual of places to create my own style, lighting, framing, in order to make each of my films what they are today. I love to travel, to discover new cultures, new atmospheres, to capture the life all around, and to tell these stories through images and music.

I don’t charge an hourly rate because the way I shoot is not conventional. My wedding films are not linear or edited on the spot. I truly love to get to know the married couple, their story, who they are and what their ambitions are. I get all my research done on the wedding location and work alongside with the wedding planners and vendors in advance. I come early on the big day, to take in the surroundings, the mood, the atmosphere, to guide my inspiration. I pay attention to everything and everyone throughout the day and I envision the finished product as I am filming. I then return home to write down the story of their film, since we are telling a story after all, the video editing comes after. I strip down all my rushes, listen to every word, and search out every clue that can help guide the story through the editing.

Being musician at heart, I put a lot of emphasis on the music. I go through hundreds of songs to find the perfect tune to best fit the story I’m telling.

Since perfection is found in the details, I try and retry and then try again when I put scenes together until the movie is perfect. I work as an artisan, and I pay meticulous attention to my craft.

Investment

I choose to cover a limited number of weddings so every film can be unique.

I am not on the hunt for filming every possible wedding, I would rather work with wedding couples that like my work and my philosophy. I choose to cover a limited number of weddings each year, focusing on quality over quantity. A movie has a beginning and an end. To see it through, I am present from the preparations to the late night festivities. I enjoy myself as much, if not more, when sharing in the eve of the wedding, and the first day as newly weds. They are days full of emotion that deserve to have their stories told in the movie.

There you have it. Now you know everything. Well, that’s not entirely true, but why not share the rest over a hot beverage ?
