Wedding Videographer | Brian Wheatley
I started filming weddings in 2006 when I created my professional Midlands Wedding Video Company – The Multi-Media Market Wedding Videography. Running alongside my corporate business.
I’ve been self-employed since 1998 as a Graphic Designer and Photographer. Making the move into filming and editing was a natural choice for me to grow my business. This really feeds my creative nature. I also film and video edit for businesses and have worked in Holland and Belgium.
I provide filming right through to the editing and delivery of wedding videos. I'm unobtrusive and offer great finished film packages.
I create cinematic-style wedding videography. My packages contain musical montages such as the Brides Preparations, Arrivals, Photo Call and Evening Party. I also cover the Ceremony, Speeches, Cake Cutting, and First Dance parts of the day 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. I'm now offering limited drone filming of your wedding venue (ask for details).
You’ll receive creatively filmed and edited videos. Supplied on USB Drive (separate HD movies on USB) that contains so many memories of yourselves, your family, and your friends enjoying your day.
Check out some frequently asked questions on this page.
What's my style of filming?
My background as a graphic designer, video producer and photographer is reflected in my style of wedding filming. I focus on people, details and events of the day rather than staged or directed cinematography. I don’t do cheesy voiceovers, slow motion, and flashy editing with lots of special effects. I produce well-filmed and stylishly edited footage that captures the day and tells a story of its own.
I don’t direct anyone on the day and try to remain as discreet as possible. I think the best wedding videographers show realistic scenes that people will remember and connect with emotionally. I use either hard cuts or soft dissolve transitions timed to the music that you choose. 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. A Silver Package is usually around one hour and twenty minutes in time. But it all depends on how long the ceremony and speeches last. The musical montages are each between four and seven minutes and these are the Brides Preps, Arrivals, Photo Call and Evening Party.
Which Cameras do I use?
I create my wedding videos using a variety of broadcast-quality video cameras. I record in HD onto Solid State Drives and 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 shotgun microphones and radio mics where appropriate.
I film most of the day using the camera on a tripod. This means no shaky footage and all shots are focused properly. I also film without a tripod during certain parts of the day for more dynamic footage. And I can also use a drone for amazing coverage of your venue.
The ceremony, speeches, and the first dance are filmed using two cameras when possible for a variety of angles. I have also just started using a GoPro Hero for more discreet filming at certain angles. I do try to be as discreet as possible.

Do I edit the footage myself?
I edit all the footage myself on a modern, professional edit suite. Up-to-date, I’ve produced over 400 weddings and I love making wedding films and telling the couples story of their day.
