There is a very romantic, almost nostalgic feel about this week’s wedding film from The Smile Factory Film. Aleesha of Smile Factory tells ” Never have we filmed a more heartfelt wedding than Leah and Scott’s.

Scott’s first wife died of cancer in 2010 and he was left with two daughters, aged 2 and 4, he met Leah who also had a daughter and they fell in love and had a son. Their wedding was not just really about them, it was about their whole family. With each of the girls participating in the vows, you can see this briefly in their film, when they all lock down a padlock together.

My favourite part is at the end when one of the daughters is dancing in the father/daughter dance with her late mum’s father.”
