Aeroplane is a design studio formed by Frosyni Bairaktari and Gareth Higham. After gaining a decade of industry experience, we decided to set up base at AWOL in 2015, a hub of all things creative and a unique place to work. When we’re not in the studio, you’ll find us on research trips, exhibitions or enjoying the outdoors.

Elite Filming

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Elite filming’s goal is to create handcrafted, individual and exciting films for our clients. We want to capture all of the emotional, fun and candid moments of your special day. Whilst filming we want to make a connection with our clients so we can produce the best film possible. Only a limited number of weddings are commissioned a year so each gets the necessary care and attention they deserve. We want our couples to inspire us and trust our judgement in capturing an incredible vision of their love story.

Our cinematic filming and editing services have always set us apart. We offer a unique editing style for wedding cinematography, spending that little bit extra with clients to ensure you receive a wedding film tailored to suit you.

You choose your filming and editing style, ranging from an interactive film with the bride, groom and guests talking to the camera, to an unobtrusive style, capturing the essence of your day on film. The style of our films will be natural, unique and above all gorgeous to watch. We’ll capture your day and the stories that unfold, in a way that will be discreet and subtle so you can relive the highs, the laughs, the dreams for years to follow.

Elite Filming is a high quality cinematography company based in the city centre of Manchester. Elite Filming was established by Maz Afzal, an enthusiastic and experienced photographer and cinematographer. Maz has a plethora of training in media production, ensuring every client has a perfect video of their day.
