"I’d say to my daughters and grandchildren is to actually communicate more and ask about your lives and previous lives as I do regret not doing that to my own parents."

Testimonials

Kate H, Morden

I felt I was with friends so I felt relaxed and I was able to probably tell them things I had never ever told anyone before and the result is that I have this lovely film for my family and my children

Jim B, London

I was surprised at how much came flooding back once we started but I'm very pleased with the end result

Shirley W, Kensington

I'm looking forward to giving something to my daughter and grandson that they can use and share when I'm no longer here.

Renee R, London

I was leaving a recorded memory for my daughter and I had in my mind that it was really for her to watch someday because we know memories fade with time.

Lloyd C, Plymouth

Great shoot last week, thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with you guys.

Jayne Jackson

Had an amazing experience with the Illumate Stories team when they filmed with my 96 year old Nan. My Nan has dementia but they were extremely patient and kind and worked their magic to get Nan to tell some lovely stories that we will now be able to treasure forever.
