Steve & Yvonne


We're husband and wife, we met in the Pharmaceutical Industry in 1991 (we both have Biology Degrees and it seemed like a good choice!). We married in 1996, and after leaving behind a decade of corporate life a few years later we've been working together in the Wedding Industry ever since. Steve is very lucky, and Yvonne is very very patient.

We love weddings, and the secret sauce that makes weddings really special is.... people. Our passion is looking for all the lovely little emotions and special moments that happen on a wedding day. Not having to create them through posing or acting, just knowing when and where to look to find them. It's our super-power, and how we manage to succeed in our goal of creating natural, relaxed and real wedding films. They're also FUN, something sometimes forgotten. Weddings are a ton of fun and we love capturing that!

Our Backgrounds

Steve - Creative Director, Camera genius & Editor

A countryside upbringing in rural Shropshire, boys boarding school, University of Birmingham to do Biology Degree, then 8 years in the Pharmaceutical Industry. After progressing as far as I wanted, it was time to turn a hobby into a business. 20 years later, here we are with 5 VOWS Customer Service Awards, and two prestigious UK wide IOV Awards for our Wedding Films. I think I found my calling and I guess we must be doing something right. Hope you agree.

Yvonne - 'The Boss', Camera genius & Admin

Born and raised in Edinburgh, went to James Gillespies’ High School and then Napier Uni to study Biology. Then 6 years in the Pharmaceutical Industry where I met Steve, and after getting married on a beach in the Caribbean decided to set up my own successful Wedding Planning company arranging weddings for clients from all over the world. As the years went on I became more and more interested in the film side of things and these days I’m full-time with Cherry Tree both filming and in total control of all of Cherry Tree’s admin and make sure we’re always in the right place at the right time. The 5 VOWS Customer Service awards we’ve won really do show that we achieve our aims of providing truly exemplary service!
