Capturing wedding videography for over 17 years
My approach to wedding videography
As one of the most experienced high-end wedding filmmakers in the UK I have been lucky enough to have produced multi-award winning wedding films across the country and worldwide for nearly two decades. Filming everything from lavish celebrity wedding videos to elopements on tropical islands, while always focusing on the wedding story and capturing everything naturally.
Where did my obsession with wedding videos begin?
Having a background in film and graduating at film school many years ago, I then wanted to perfect a storytelling approach to wedding videography that was modern but classical. The main focus I have is to keep everything as uncontrived as possible in the wedding video, avoiding anything ‘cheesy’ or manufactured. This allows every moment of the wedding video to be captured naturally, along with all of the raw emotion and atmosphere. With continuing to produce independent and short films that are entered into festivals worldwide, this keeps me in tune to evolving approaches that I can then progress through into my wedding videos.
The main key to my work is not only to collect incredible shots but to capture the unique story of each day and weaving this into my wedding videography. Being discreet and allowing guests to enjoy the wedding unfolding without noticing I am there at all is one aspect of this. Almost every frame you see within my wedding films are shot naturally with nothing staged, drawing on my many years of experience to stay in the background and collect footage in the most unobtrusive yet cinematic way possible.
Documenting the wedding day with fantastic composition and timing is the most difficult to perfect but by far the most rewarding. You will have all of the atmosphere, moments and emotions captured naturally, which will truly define the story of your own unique wedding. By approaching wedding videography in this way everything will still look fresh rather than outdated or contrived in years to come.
Knowing exactly where to be at the right times to collect those emotional moments is key, it is something I achieve after experience from many hundreds of weddings videos. It is balancing this with using my creative knowledge to capture these moments in many unique, cinematic and elegant shots.
All wedding films are different and unique, every single one. This is what makes my job so exciting and why I still absolutely love creating these personal and distinctive films after so many years!
