Hi my name is Aaron ‘Matt’ Rose, more commonly known as Matt by my friends and the creative founder of Aaron Rose Wedding Films.
I’m a passionate guy, lover of music, strong coffee and classic films, a happy soul who loves what he does and does what he loves! And that’s filmmaking… and some bad guitar playing from time to time.
The wedding filmmaking bug came to me later in life, a little after I had completed my MA in New Media Production, gaining the MA set me off into the world of professional story telling.
My video work has been aired on both the ITV and BBC and I once worked on a world wide 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).
I’m now over a decade into this crazy career and with over 250 weddings ‘under my belt’ I still get a kick out of creating special wedding film’s for my couples. I blend all the best bits of my passions into my visual work to bring you film’s that are a little different than the standard wedding video. They ain’t wedding video’s, its more ‘a love story’ with a twist.
Taking my visual influences from Street Photography and Art Films, I adopt a creative use of shadows, light, symmetry and reflections to create interesting visual compositions. I am a massive fan of symmetry in filmmaking and I’m always on the look out for symmetrical shots.
I try to give people a different way of looking at their surroundings, using my unique viewpoint of your wedding to create an emotive and entertaining film. I view each wedding with fresh pair of eyes and allow the unique day to inspire my creative vision.
Watching the action as it unfolds before the gaze of the lens, I find the story running through the heart of the wedding. It’s in caring for a couples individual story that ‘the film’ becomes the keeper of their story, and by bringing my artistic take on proceedings I get to make a film that is uniquely yours. That’s art to me.
I love minimalism in my life and my film-making, so I bring a simple and relaxed approach to filming weddings staying super ‘low key’ and discrete.
I shoot with a minimum of equipment, using a camera no bigger than a professional wedding photographer, allowing me to disappear into the background of the event. Simplicity is key. Discretion paramount. I capture the action as it happens so you can enjoy your day as you want to.
I want you guys to be chilled, relaxed, and stress free on your big day and I know my approach will have the least impact on your wedding experience. I simply introduce myself when we first meet on the wedding day, then I blend into the background of the wedding celebrations. Ninja mode engaged.
