About

“I think the experience and intuition that comes with the number of weddings I’ve filmed (somewhere around 600!) really puts couples at ease that they can just leave me to it and know they’ll receive a film that they absolutely adore. I get a real kick out of being able to do my thing to a super consistent quality and tact, whether your wedding is a sweet elopement in rural Devon or mad 200 guest East London Party, and everything in between”

In 2010 I’d just got out of uni, having qualified as an Environmental Health Officer I was keen to start applying for my first ‘proper job’ as an EHO. The thing was, I had no money and was living with my girlfriend’s (now wife) parents, so needed something to see myself through the summer whilst I was on the job hunt.

I was always inspired by my father-in-laws successful career as a lifestyle photographer, and although that’s rather different from a Devon wedding videographer, whilst we were living with them, I had access to all his photography equipment, of which was just recently able shoot the most amazing quality video. 100 youtube tutorials later, I racked my brains for a way to monetise this newfound ability to shoot great quality video, and after filming promotional videos for businesses, music videos for friends, and even 6th form proms, an opportunity came up to film a friend of a friends wedding as their official Devon wedding videographer. My approach of not interfering, and just filming the day as it unfolded was not because I wanted to be unobtrusive, it was because I was/am rather introverted and had a massive case imposter syndrome. However, it was this approach that lead to a wedding video that was refreshingly free of cheese or contrived moments, this was not commonplace in 2010, and people loved it!

Things snowballed, and I was soon the wedding videographer for 50+ weddings a year all over the country and globe, needless to say, I never did get that first ‘proper job’ as an EHO. I absolutely love being a Devon wedding videographer; the meeting people from all walks of life, the different family dynamics, the people watching, the travel, and of course the reactions and gratitude from couples that first time they watch their wedding video – yeah the hours are long and ‘anti-social’, but it’s so worth it!

Outside of filming, I’m a husband to my wife Emily, who has been an extension of me since the tender age of 16. At 24 we had our first child, little Daisy, and now at 30 I have 3, mostly lovely, children. I’m passionate about design and aesthetics, and I’m totally bloody obsessed with gardening, spending nigh-on all of my (very limited) free time creating a magical outdoor space out of our neglected plot, complete with a tropical jungle, American prairie and Mediterranean alfresco terrace. I’m an avid snowboarder, but life has got in the way of this a little, however, I still do get to enjoy a week out in the alps every year or so.

*Bumping into 7 previous brides at a wedding.

Ben is the most incredible videographer – the wedding video he made for us perfectly captures the joy and emotion of our wedding. On the day he was a calming and discreet presence. I could not recommend Ben more highly, we will treasure our video forever.

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 🙂

 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. Ben will honestly be the best wedding day investment.

 

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.

Ben did such a stunning job with our wedding videos. He was so easy to be around and did a great job capturing everyones emotions and fun on the day. We were not initially sure if we wanted to video our wedding but we are SO glad we did. We would 100000% recommend him to anyone!

What can we say; Ben is amazing! Through the heartache of 3 wedding dates and multiple postponements due to Covid, Ben was so accommodating and supportive; moving the date each time without a fuss. As for the day itself… incredible! Ben captured everything we’d hoped for and more. The video is perfect. And to top it off, he’s just a genuinely nice guy.

I honestly can’t recommend Ben enough, he was absolutely amazing throughout! The videos Ben captured and edited of our wedding were just everything we wanted and much more!!! I will honestly be forever grateful and can’t thank him enough. If you are looking for a videographer you definitely won’t be disappointed!

Safe to say we were blown away by Ben’s work! The sequence, the songs and the shots he put together were all perfect, had us constantly in tears with both laughter and emotion as we’ve watched it back so many times. All our friends and family have also commented how incredible the video is. Not only that but Ben was amazing on the day, guiding us when needed but mostly being in the background basically unnoticeable as we went about our day.

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.
