About me and how I create Wedding Videos
Professional Cameras | Creative Video Editing | Years of Experience
Midlands Wedding Video Company
I create cinematic style wedding videos that not only contain musical montages such as the Brides Preparations, Arrivals, Photo Call and Evening Party but I also cover the Ceremony, Speeches, Cake Cutting and First Dance parts of a wedding in full so you don't miss out on these important sections of your wedding day. You choose your own music for each montage and ambient sound is on the larger sections.
You'll receive a creatively filmed and edited wedding film on DVD* and USB Drive (HD footage on USB) that contains so many memories of yourselves, family and your friends enjoying your wedding day.
What's my wedding filming style like?
My background in design and advertising as a graphic designer is reflected in my style of wedding filming, which is more focussed on the people, details and events of the day rather than staged or directed cinematography, cheesy voiceovers, slow motion and flashy editing. The best wedding videographers like showing realistic scenes that people will remember and connect with yet still filmed and edited in a creative and professional way. I like to use either hard cuts or soft dissolve transitions timed to music. Occasionally I may add a more creative transition but this will be driven by the footage and feel of the film to the music.
How long do my videos last?
On average a Gold Package will last about two hours and a Silver Package is usually around one hour twenty minutes in time. But it all depends on how long the ceremony and speeches last.
What equipment do I use?
My wedding filming is created using variety of broadcast quality cameras and I record in HD onto Solid State Drives as well as onto internal cards inside the cameras at the same time, so no footage will be lost due to hard drive failure. I also use professional shot gun microphones and radio mics where appropriate.
I film most of the day using the camera on a tripod which means no shaky footage and all shots are focused properly. I also use a professional gimbal during certain parts of the day if the opportunity arises.
The ceremony, speeches and the first dance are filmed using two cameras when possible for a variety of angles.
Do I edit the footage myself?
As well as being a fully experienced Wedding Videographer in the Midlands I also edit all the footage myself on a modern, professional edit suite. The footage is worked on from a RAID drive for security (RAID drives give an instant, mirrored backup of the files on a separate drive). At this point the footage can be colour corrected or the exposure adjusted. Once a project is completed, a backup copy of the important files are transferred onto external hard drive or blu-ray data disc.
I'm looking for a Wedding Videographer in Birmingham – do you cover this area?
Yes – I work all over the West Midlands. I've filmed as far as Cambridge and Oxford as well as Leeds and Manchester.
How long have I been a Midlands Wedding Videographer?
I started filming people getting married in 2006 for a company in Solihull. Soon after that though I decided to get more involved and decided to create a professional midlands wedding video company offering filming right through to editing and delivery of wedding videos.
I've been self employed since 1998 as a graphic designer and making the move into filming and editing was a natural choice for me to grow my business and feed my creative nature.
