Wedding films

From 2023 I am offering both wedding highlights films as an add-on service, and wedding videography only 

Watch some wedding highlights films…

What kind of wedding films do I offer?

Highlights films

Well, I have two types of service – if you’re planning on working with me for your photography, then you can add a highlights video – for this I approach it the same was as I do my photography – looking for similar moments, but also things I know work well as film. Dance moves, tears being shed, confetti moments, taking a walk together. I edit it into a wedding film you can watch over and over again, with some cool music that suits the vibe of your day. I shoot it handheld, so it has a candid shot-from-the-hip feel. This will be ready alongside your wedding photos, to view in your own gallery.

Generally it doesn’t include full coverage of your ceremony or speeches, but, depending on your venue and the day, it might be possible to provide a simple recording of your speeches too. See the FAQs below for more of a breakdown.

Standalone video

If you already have a photographer confirmed and want a cheese-free wedding film then you’ll get a 3-4 minute highlight film showing the story of the day, a one minute social media teaser you can share on Reels (or wherever with your choice of music – see FAQs for more details) and full coverage of your ceremony and speeches; all delivered to you in a super cool video gallery that you can ever Chrome Cast onto your TV. So it makes it super easy to stage a movie night and share with everyone.

 

 

KIND WORDS

“Best decision we made for the wedding was going for this! Have had so many people say how unique the video was and how well it captured the energy of the day”

I have a limited number of 2024 dates when I’ll be offering standalone wedding films – so if you like my wonky little films and you want something heartfelt and honest and fun instead of drones and cinematics and co-ordinated bridal party dances, then I’d love to hear from you.

I can work alongside your existing wedding photographer to create something rather lovely for you.

GOT SOME QUESTIONS?


No – copyright prohibits this use of music, in order to do it legally you’d need permission from the record label and a separate permission from the artist or publisher, and they mostly don’t reply to small fry wedding types. Companies I use for music licensing have started to offer the service where they will seek the appropriate permissions on your behalf, but this starts at $10k.

Instead I’ll find some lovely licensed music to set your full video to that will complement the vibe of the day.

There’s one loophole we can work with though – I can provide you with a 90 second edit of your day that will be silent BUT you can share it to Instagram via Reels and add music of your choice legally.

So are most of the lovely couples I work with – my suggestion in that case is to share some tracks with me that you love, and that gives me an aural direction to find something great.

For standalone films – that’s no problem and all included. For highlights films – it’s a bit of a ‘depends’ answer. If the wedding is all in one place, it might be possible to provide a simple video of your speeches, but if it’s a multi venue central London extravaganza, it might be attempting to wear a few too many hats when I’m capturing stills too.

In this case, this is where you might want to look at hiring a dedicated videographer.

Yes, you can add one on at any point, though I do need a bit of notice to arrange a second photographer.

That’s totally cool – I work with plenty of couples who consider adding on a highlights film, but in the end decide to hire a different videographer – maybe because they want a longer edit or whatnot.

The most important thing is to make sure their approach and methods on the day compliment mine – for example if their work is very traditional or involves lots of set up shots, and you’ve specifically chosen a photographer who doesn’t do that – they’re likely to be working against each other on the day. It’s as important to find a videographer you like as a much as your photographer – try not to let your parent book one!

A recent example was a wedding this last Summer where one of the bride’s parents booked quite a traditional videographer for them as a gift – they were in the way constantly, their approach to portraits was quite staged and seemed to annoy both the brides, so by the time it came to do photos, they were just a bit over it.
