Hello I’m Stephen.
I’m the one in the photos below, caught pulling some odd poses as I film at past weddings…
Having grown up with a passion for films and storytelling I was able to develop my technical knowledge and filmmaking creativity through school & college. I went on to study a (BA) Media Production degree at university and was lucky enough to complete with 1st class honours. During this time one of my short films was a finalist in the Royal Television Society Awards ‘fiction’ category.
From there I obtained my first job working for an audio visual & events company where I could be involved in the entire video production process. This led me to filming events all over the UK and abroad and even filming the Queen & Prince Phillip once (which was a little nerve-racking!).
Fast forward a few jobs and years later and in 2012 I decided to start up my own video production company ahead of my first daughter being born (my inspiration to succeed). Limelight Media Productions Ltd was established and the wedding film brand; Shepperson Wedding Films launched.
Since then my fiancée Jenny joined the business as my assistant editor and advisor (behind every successful man is a successful woman!). We now have two children; Holly & Poppy (Poppy was in Jenny’s tummy at the time of photo below…) and we have steadily grown the business from year to year, always seeking to improve the quality of our work.
We have maintained our passion for discreetly capturing the story of a wedding day as it unfolds and retelling it in a creative, emotive and entertaining way. The drive for us to produce the best films we can is the rewarding feedback we hear from our clients when they are able to relive all the details of their special day for a lifetime! (hopefully with a few laughs and tears of joy).
I am described by many of my clients as a friendly easy-going professional who makes them feel at ease about the whole process. They say that on the wedding day they hardly noticed I was there filming.
I love being able to run my own business, work alongside my fiancée and put my passion of storytelling into producing the best films I can about love, friendship & family. I look forward to meeting each of you, being apart of your special day and making some new friends along the way!
