This was a first for Shoot The Piano Player Wedding Videos. We’d talked about the idea of filming Love Stories for our couples for a while, but this was the first one we’d made.
With our Love Stories, we create a short film about the couple and their lives together. It could be a short film about how the couple met, or something with less of a narrative. The important thing is that we capture the essence of the couple and what makes them special.
The Love Story is an amazing keepsake for a couple – even a couple who aren’t yet engaged to be married. For those that are getting married soon, having a Love Story film made gives you an opportunity to screen the film at the wedding for all your guests to see!
Kalia and Pete’s Love Story
Kalia and Pete are a couple from Worcester and Redditch (respectively), who are engaged to be married in August. They met each other in 2009 and have been inseparable ever since.
For this Love Story, Kalia and Pete let us know that they wanted something romantic that included some humour, as well. They both have a great sense of humour, so it was only natural to include this in the film.
With the couple, we decided on a black-and-white romcom style that was also a small homage to the silent film era.
Their first date was at The Raven pub in Worcester, so we felt it important to start the film there. From there, we move to other important locations in their relationship, including the beautiful Diglis Docks area.
Kalia and Pete ended up screening the film at their wedding and it was received fantastically! You can view the finished Love Story short film here:
Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, Love Stories can be about any aspect of a couple’s lives together. The options really are endless. A Love Story film is a memorable keepsake for any couple – something that can be shown at the wedding, or something personal to be cherished together.

Kalia and Pete are a fantastic couple and we wish them all the best in their new lives together!
