We are revolutionising the way we record special events - we make virtual reality wedding films - I am  SO passionate about creating these films - they are memories that you can walk right back into!

*Neither Vimeo or Youtube play in VR on safari for iphone - If you're on iphone click the *view in Youtube app* button.*

My name is Emma, I’m the founder of Virtual Weddings and I have created a way to have your special occasions literally play out all around you.

  •   What if you could relive the joy of your wedding day all over again?
  •   What if we could transport you back to the moment you walked down the aisle?
  • What if I told you that you can have future generations stood next to you on your wedding day?
  • What if I told you that if you lost your capacity to remember you could still revisit your special day - hear it, feel it and relive it as if it were only yesterday...

That time is here now!

Imagine, the ability to get married anywhere in the world and have guests attend without the costly flights? There are so many reasons people are unable to attend weddings. Illness, immobility or even just distance.

We are even able to live stream in 360° if the bandwidth of the internet connection is large enough - all you need is a fast internet connection and one of our headsets and you can watch the ‘I do’ in real-time in virtual reality.

What do we do?

 We use 5k 360° filming to capture your day and virtual reality headsets (which we supply) for you to put yourself back in the day.

We also provide a professional, multi camera live streaming service (like you see on TV coverage of sports events) which can allow guests from anywhere in the world to virtually attend a wedding as it happens.

What is my story?

A sudden accident 6 years ago day left me with a brain injury. I was told I might never walk again, raise my children by myself or be able to continue my lifelong passion as a photographer and film maker.

‘1.4 million patients per year attend hospital following head injury and it is the most common cause of death under the age of 40 years’

Although the injury left me with no memory of my son River’s first Christmas I recovered and used my determination, 21 years of experience as a photographer and film maker and my love of technology to make our most important events something that we could capture and relive over and over again so that other people would always be able to revisit their most treasured days.

Virtual Weddings - the story so far

I have been working full-time on bringing the concept to life for 14 months now and I’ve never been more excited about my work! In the last year we have completed a 3 month Entrepreneurial Spark business incubator start up programme, we’ve had an incredible 6 months testing the market, made our concept films, crafted the brand that is Virtual Weddings and we are now a part of the 6 month Natwest business accelerator programme.

We opened for business in March and have already taken our first bookings from couples and venues.

You can see a lovely article written about us by the wonderful people at Weddingly here and you can watch our concept film in 360° here. Its definitely best watched in a virtual reality headset but on a computer or a mobile you'll still experience the magic. Be sure to have the quality settings up at 4k (adjustments in the cog icon).If you would like to read about all of the incredible suppliers on our concept film see here.

My team is incredible and between us we have over 75 years of experience in Arts, technology and business and they are all as passionate about this as I am!

Our Mission

I believe that virtual reality film capture can and will become standard practise and I want to bring this cutting edge technology into the lives of everyone who wants to preserve their memorable days.

We are on a mission to teach people how to use VR headsets via YouTube tutorials (or - where possible - in person) and I want to help as many other industry suppliers, venues and college graduates to learn how to create these virtual reality films so that everyone can have their day immortalised.

With funding and backing we can develop what we are already doing for people, teach other people (photographers, venues, graduates etc) how to do these and we can make virtual reality films accessible for millions of people around the globe!

With any money we raise here we will adopt the following spend spread:

60% equipment 30% Marketing and Sales and 10% teaching.

We can also then get to work on developing our use of technology so that virtual guests can navigate the wedding space from the comfort of their own home if they can’t be there on the day.

Virtual Weddings are literally adding another dimension to the wedding industry.
