    Filming Are You Ready For Love? commenced in September 2005 after 4 weeks of pre-production. The film was shot entirely on location in London over 5 weeks and encompassed some of London’s most celebrated landmarks, and shooting location included the streets of Soho, Central Hall in Westminster, Hampstead Heath, Streatham ice rink and the South Bank.

    The film includes a speed dating sequence that takes place on board the charter boat The Dixie Queen on the River Thames at Tower Bridge. The Bridge opened for the boat to pass through during the shoot.

    Amidst these organized events we have scenes set in the homes of the main characters and their workplaces. This took us from a vets in Barnes to music studios in Maida Vale, and scenes set in a publishing house near Greenwich with stunning panoramic views across the city.

    Filming finished on 24 October 2005 and the film was in post production until the end of March 2006.

    Are You Ready for Love? was released on DVD by Sony on 9 February 2009.
