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.

Ben is a joy to be around – he has a warm, bubbly, caring personality which instantly put us at ease, and, to top it off he is an incredible videographer – the best I’ve ever seen! We feel extremely lucky to have had him film our special day and couldn’t be happier with the results.
If you are in the process of selecting someone to capture the moments and emotions of your day, look no further, Ben is your man!
If we could give him more than 5 stars, we would. Thank you Ben for your talent and hard work!!! We hope to see you again one day 🙂
Laura & Dave
Ben is simply amazing. We saw his other wedding videos online and knew we loved the style, but obviously you have no idea if you’ll like the person behind the camera who spends the whole day with you – or if you’ll like seeing yourself back in what they film- we won, on all counts! Ben is so subtle that you barely even notice him on the day, but when you do, he’s smiling and quietly going about his business. Thank you Ben – you are awesome.
Hannah & Braham
We really will cherish our wedding video for the rest of our lives, it’s so good we’ve taken it on a mini-screening tour to all our friends and family around the country! It is absolutely stunning, Ben truly is a talented filmmaker.
Victoria & Iain
I can’t recommend Foster filming highly enough. Ben has produced the most beautiful video of our wedding day – its everything I hoped it would be and more. Half the time you never even knew he was there. For anyone even thinking about a wedding video (I was in two minds) DO IT. Foster filming will honestly be the best wedding day investment.

We saw one of Ben’s highlight clips of a wedding at our venue and we had to have him for ours! We can’t thank him enough for the best way to always remember our special day. He is absolutely amazing at what he does and captured our day perfectly with all the little details. We weren’t conscious that he was filming us at any point throughout the day, he is such a lovely friendly person and we would recommend him to everyone. Truly amazing!
Liz & Dan
What can I say! Ben was professional and amazingly friendly from the moment he arrived. I was so nervous about being filmed but he fitted in so nicely with the guests and bridal party we hardly noticed he was there! He went out of his way to get some fantastic coverage that we will be able to treasure until death do us part haha! I would recommend him to anybody looking for a videographer he is truly fantastic! Thank you so so much Ben!
Emma & Greg
Ben was wonderful! He captured our day perfectly! Having such a small wedding, Ben fit in with our close family and friends so well and it was great to share our day with him.
Emma & Jamie
Im so grateful that we had Ben to capture our wedding. Such a lovely guy to have spent the day with and worked amazingly with our photographer. The DVD and the highlights clip are stunning, worth every penny and I would recommend to anybody getting married. Thank so much.
Toria & Jamie
Ben did a brilliant job for our wedding – he was with us all day, in the background but also on hand any time we wanted to check in. Totally unobtrusive but so friendly and chilled that it was like having an extra guest. The footage he produced was fantastic, a really treasured memory – would recommend Ben to anybody!
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. Check out their Sandy Cove Hotel Wedding Video highlights clip in the thumbnail on the left 🙂
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
