As Documentary Wedding Photographers, we know that there is only so much a single photograph can convey to the viewer.
Photography has the ability to bring you back to that moment, but over time our memories along with some details will fade. Keeping those small, yet very important details alive is the driving force behind Photofilm wedding videos, producing a film that serves to act as a ‘living’ wedding album.
We all remember the faces of loved ones through the images we have. Reminders serving to reinforce and keep our memories alive. But what of the voice …?
A voice tells so much about a person and yet so many of us lack any quality keepsakes capturing this detail.
Volume, tone, accent, mannerisms and diction all serve to create and leave an impression with the listener. All are valuable facets to use when telling stories and these are all perfectly harnessed within Photofilm wedding videos.
Weddings are about the people, their interactions and relationships. We capture this naturally with a calm observant approach.
This same approach that we have to our wedding photography is also mirrored within the sound recordings gathered from your wedding day.
Using high quality professional digital recorders strategically placed within a room or placed within the groom jacket pocket, recordings are made without any interference to the wedding day’s natural flow.
We let the people, tell their story in their own words. Recording voices and carefully editing to create a film that creatively unfolds to document the real story of your wedding day.
Our photography artistically captures every detail of your day, leaving you to tell the story of your day, in your own words.
Photofilm wedding videos are designed to be enjoyed and viewed on the everyday technology we all use on a daily basis.
Designed for easy loading onto your iphone, ipad or computer for instant sharing amongst friends and family on social media. It’s the album you can carry everywhere you go!
Victoria & Jon Jo’ Radipole Manor Wedding.
A Dorset Military Wedding fulfilling a young girls dream day.
Victoria had always wanted to marry in the quaint village church across from the school she first attended.
Along with a wish to celebrate just up the road at a nearby Manor House. Privately owned, the owners were approached and her dream day was granted!
This celebration carries some great memories for me. Not only were the couple, their family and friends great people to be around and capture – the day was very effortless and natural.
Great details, along with a warming energy flowing from start to finish. Some of the images derived went on to win some of this years International competitions.
Their story and narrative for the film is mostly contributed by the Best Man speech. A colleague of Jon Jo and fellow Royal Marine – well worth tuning into this Radipole Manor Wedding!
Andreea & Justin’s Luxters Barn Wedding.
This summer Oxfordshire wedding is a really insightful wedding photofilm, especially for any Fathers of the Bride looking for inspiration for a possible speech.
Having just completed this edit prior to my own wedding, hearing the heartfelt words, really bought it home to me, how beautiful and tender people are.
The wiseness in his words and the eloquently sharing of these in front of gathered family and friends. The speech defines the day and this photofilm so well.
It really does give you a lump in your throat and pull at the heart strings. Well worth a few minutes to relive and be part of this Luxters Barn Wedding.
Helen & Ben’s West Sussex Wedding
Helen & ben’s story is superbly captured within this Photofilm. The wedding breakfast speeches providing all the wonderful detail of how they met (and it is quite a story), along with all the heartfelt tribute played by the Groom to his Bride.
Wonderful tribute from the Father of the Bride, recalling her younger years with the various hopes and ambitions any young girl has. To the banter and quick wit of the Best Men.
I love the pace, the tenderness and the humour. A great example of how rich this Photofilm presentation can be.
Louise & Matt’s Highcliffe Castle Wedding
A great Summer wedding at one of Dorset’s most beautiful Castles. Set a short distance from beautiful beaches, Highcliffe weddings yield so much in the way of atmosphere along with photographic opportunity.
A hot, sunny day providing wonderful ceremony light as well and the dramatic backdrop of historical architecture, along with tranquil sea side abandon.
Jade & John’s Kingston Country Courtyard Wedding.
A young family with two young sons celebrating their day with gathered family and friends.
This Kingston Country Courtyard Wedding captures the unique energy and connection this young couple share. Their ceremony with their young son delivering his own reading grounds this Photofilm in the reality of their shared love for their children. Their lives obviously revolve around their sons, but it is also reinforced by their connection with the lifelong friends and family gathered in celebration.
Kit and Darren’s Athelhampton House Wedding
Athelhampton weddings never cease to provide great material. This one being no exception.
A winter wedding but one with so much warmth. I’m not taking open fires here, more along the lines of unique, genuine people putting their very own mix of individuality on top.
I love speeches (if you hadn’t already gathered) and these selected excerpts from the Father of the Bride, Rick were classic!
I wont give the game away, but it was creative genius that I haven’t seen before, nor since.
Sit back, take a few moments and enjoy!
Louise & James’ Moreton Church Wedding.
A very hot summer wedding at a gorgeous Dorset church.
If choral music is your thing, this Moreton Church wedding will blow you away.
With the Bride being a Soprano and the Groom a Tenor, with all their gathered friends
raised the roof with a very moving service full of rich musical accompaniment.
A crown has to be passed to the Father of the Bride for his wedding speech.
The quote upon meeting her intended husband to be….
“I wanted no more than to stab him repeatedly with a blunt screw driver!”
– Thank God we are all civilised down here in Dorset!
Caroline & Dave’s Little Quarme Wedding, Somerset
An open air Little Quarme wedding , over looking a beautiful Somerset valley.
Marquee reception back at Northover Manor with friends providing the musical soundtrack of the day.
Great speeches, plenty of laughter and smashing crowd of people.
Kelly & Gavin’s Kingston Maurward Wedding, Dorset.
An early spring, outdoor wedding in this stunning venue near Dorchester.
So many great details from the day to remember, from Lauren Bannon serenading the couple, to wedding quotes from Bruce Lee!
A wedding speech delivery that produced one of my best pictures to date, with both the Bride and her Mother-in-law biting their lips, struggling to hold back tears!
A very heartfelt, emotional day and a real pleasure to capture. A real favourite of mine from a Kingston Maurward Wedding!
Sarah & James’ Portland castle Wedding.
A lovely church wedding on Portland with a rather enthusiastic Groom rushing into his vows, followed by a marquee reception in the grounds of Portland Castle.
Laura & Andy’s Huntsham Court Wedding, Devon.
An amazing day full of wonderful details. Woodland themed wedding within a beautiful country house.
A private church blessing on the estate grounds, a rich musical soundtrack provided by friend and musician Ryan Keen. Wedding breakfast speeches that melted the heart, a groom holding back the tears….
Well worth taking a look at this Huntsham Court Wedding.
Heather & Gary’s Bournemouth Town Hall Wedding.
This Bournemouth Town Hall wedding was a day full of colour. A wedding ceremony with Bride and Groom entering the chamber to a personally mixed soundtrack of Carly Simon and James Bond theme tunes.
Flanked by friends and family with colourful pom poms. Animated and humorous – it was spectacular, distinctive and very, very them!
What more could I possibly add to a film that ends with a classic Best Man speech and the delivery of
“Gary’s background is wire, sockets and l.e.d.lights …while Heather’s is whips, chains, sex and black tights!”
