“Who’s Aaron Rose?”
Hi I’m Matt D Brady, commonly known as Matt to my friends. Video Producer, Musician, Songwriter, ‘Tone Hound’ & ‘Shutter Bug’. A passionate guy, lover of music, self development and classic Japanese cinema. A happy soul who loves what he does and does what he loves!
Aaron Rose Wedding Films was created by me, Matt back in 2008 as my alter ego and wedding film specialist persona.
Film-making is a big part of my life and is part of my ‘Ikigai’. Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being”. The word refers to having a direction or purpose in life, that which makes one’s life worthwhile, and towards which an individual takes spontaneous and willing actions giving them satisfaction and a sense of meaning to life, and for me that’s film-making and creating music.
The ‘Aaron Rose’ journey started back when I completed my Master’s degree in New Media Production, (and that was aeons ago, so that’s another clue about the Aaron Rose name origin) setting me off into the world of professional visual storytelling.
Over the years my documentary video work has been aired on both ITV and BBC and I have worked on a world wide video marketing campaign for Mizuno sportswear. My music passion has seen me doing my thing on the John Peel stage at Glastonbury and working for record producer Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Paolo Nutini, Badly Drawn Boy). Recently I was awarded the ‘English Wedding Awards’ North West Wedding Videographer of the year for the 3rd time and appeared as regional finalist at the TWIA’s. It’s a thrill to be recognised for my wedding videography and it’s an honour that my couples thought so much about their films that they voted for me.
I’m now over a decade into this crazy career and with over 300 weddings ‘under my belt’ I still get a kick out of creating special wedding films for my couples.
Simplicity is key. Discretion paramount. I capture the action as it happens so you can enjoy your day as you want to, chilled, relaxed, and stress free. I know my approach will have the least impact on your wedding experience.
