There is a trend within wedding videography at the moment to create films that are rather dramatic, with impressive yet potentially distracting cinematic camera work that is intensively edited. My films are eloquently captured, yes, but my focus is not on adding value to or skewing reality, but rather beautifully capturing the raw essence, for better or for worse, of 1000’s of subtle, seemingly incidental, moments. I then piece these all together to capture what I feel is the true essence of the day. There is a beauty, and emotional engagement in this rawness, from the sweet vulnerabilities to the moments of elation, pure love and euphoria. This all results in a wedding film that is, at least I hope, understated and honest, yet timeless and refined.
For this all to work, it’s really important that I remain unobtrusive, capturing the day subtlety and not interfering. Let’s face it, no one really likes being filmed, so by using compact/unobtrusive equipment and not being afraid to just take a step back and capture the day from a guests perspective, people are much more at ease with me being around.
We’re currently taking bookings for 2023/24 with many key dates for 2023 having already been snapped up; to avoid disappointment, drop me a message about your wedding date as prior as possible. Although I’m a Devon wedding videographer, I also capture weddings as a Cornwall wedding videographer, Somerset wedding videographer, Dorset wedding videographer, and beyond, often finding myself in the south-east, where over half of my work is.
A Sandy Cove Hotel Wedding Video, Ilfracombe, Devon
I was recommended to the lovely duo by wedding photographer extraordinaire Barney of Barney Walters Photography and with me being a Devon wedding videographer, filming a Sandy Cove Hotel wedding video is right up my street (not literally, unfortunately, North Devon is the hardest place to drive to from anywhere!) Chloe & Ben met at a surf camp in Morocco, so it only seemed right that they get married by the sea. Get married by the sea they certainly did, with the fabulous Sandy Cove Hotel having panoramic views of not only the sea but the rugged North Devon coastline. Another big tick box for them was the presence of Alpacas, I forgot to ask about that one, I think Ben just liked Alpacas (but yeah who doesn’t!) They not only had their presence during the reception but also their presents, which were swiftly swept up by the Alpaca staff 💩. It was my first time filming at this Devon seaside wedding venue, but I really hope to find myself back there one day, I do love a venue whereby everything is on one site.

We just wanted to say that it was great to meet you and pass on a huge thanks for being part of our day. You were very discreet and Woweeeeee thank you so much, it means so much to watch back the day and relive it all Bristol wedding videographer
