Our friends over at the Quintessentially Weddings are not only some of the best luxury wedding planners in the world, they also run amazing events that showcase the talents of their preferred suppliers. We were recently invited to one of the Quintessentially Atelier events in London to show our films and talk to incredible couples looking for something truly special for their day.
We have been featured on their “Brand of the Day” article and we would love to share the Q&A we did!
Where do you find your creative inspiration?
Working with amazing couples who think a little differently than most. Having the freedom to capture a wedding, unscripted and unrehearsed, giving us creative opportunity to really push the boundaries of what can be achieved. A Bride & Groom who books us knows and understands that what we produce is timeless.
What makes your brand unique and stand out compared to others in the wedding industry?
Purple Ribbon are all about creating a film that represents your amazing day in the most beautiful and natural way possible. We keep it simple and tell your story through the unique, candid moments. No flashy edits, no voice overs, no drones. We show the day the way you felt it, not how we interpreted it.
What trends do you predict for 2016?
We think wedding films in the UK are having a resurgence and we are at the forefront of that movement away from traditional, tacky wedding films. These days most people do not want to sit and watch a 5 hour epic wedding film. A highlight film that captures the essence and feel of your day in under 5 minutes is something all your friends & family will watch again and again.
If you could give your bride & groom any piece of advice what would it be?
Try and find a moment in the day for just the two of you to share on your own. You would be amazed at how little opportunity you get to actually spend together.
Why do you think the Quintessentially Weddings Atelier is so special?
There is no other wedding event like it. Quintessentially only work with the best and we are humbled to be presenting our work surrounded by so many incredible suppliers and brands.
What can the lovely bride and grooms attending the Atelier expect from you this year?
This has been our first year in the UK and it has been all about meeting amazing wedding couples and sharing our passion for film with them. Being true to ourselves, we’re keeping it simple and letting our highlights do the talking.
Quintessentially Atelier – Brand of the Day
It’s always lovely to reminisce on special days of the past. In particular, this stunner we had the pleasure of filming for Daniella and Adrian, back in June. The lovely pair have just had their wedding featured on the wonderful blog, Polka Dot Bride. You can read all about it here! Here are some stunners we snapped on the day.
Exactly one year ago today, Purple Ribbon embarked on an adventure to the UK. Over the past 12 months we have worked with some truly incredible couples. We owe each & everyone of you so much for helping Purple Ribbon UK be all it can be.
It has been an incredible first year in the UK, but next year is already shaping up to be even better! It’s going to be HUGE!
As a thank you to all of the friends we’ve made in London & Europe we have put together a little film showing how amazing our first UK summer of weddings has been.
We recently went to check out the amazing Terrarium Tuesdays by our florist friends Grace & Thorn, and we put together a little film to showcase the event.
Grab some friends and sign up to one of their upcoming workshop events.
A question that is all too commonly asked in the lead up to your big day.
We love video and we love to help our couples remember their big day in a special way. If you’re undecided about whether or not to have a wedding video, have a read of our editorial on Let’s Get Weddy. It might help you decide what’s right for you.
It’s been a wonderful summer season for Purple Ribbon, and throughout it, we heard so many of our brides mentioning the importance of getting back on wagon and focusing on their health and fitness before their big day.
Earlier in the year, we caught up with Shannon Smith, of SmithFit. Shannon has a wealth of knowledge in nutrition and training and was kind enough to give us his best advice on working towards your wedding day bod.
We’d like to extend our warmest congratulations to all of you love birds out there, who got hitched last week and over the weekend, especially Gemma and James, who are now Mr & Mrs!
Last weekend, our very own Leo, filmmaker extraordinaire, wedded his beautiful darling, Victoria. They had a marvellous time, celebrating at The Proud Archivist. We couldn’t be happier for our buddies!
We can’t wait to show you the amazing photos by Bottega53, coming soon!

Earlier in the year, our Melbourne team had the pleasure of working with Kathy and Danielle of The Wedding Playbook, on their beautiful concept, Lavender and Light. Bringing together some amazing wedding experts, we were on set to capture the magic that happens when you’re able to work with a great team.
Kathy and Danielle, thank you again for having us along. If only we could go back in time… alas, we’ll just have to remember they day with our video!
