About Francis Darracott Weddings

Over the years I have had the great pleasure of filming and editing some truly beautiful weddings all over the country, from South Wales to Buckinghamshire, Bournemouth to Oxfordshire and many more locations.

I’m an experienced Wedding Videographer with an in-depth knowledge of filmmaking and editing. I take my time to get to know you both which means each wedding video is completely personal to every couple.

My non-intrusive ‘fly on the wall’ style of filming ensures I can capture all those wonderful moments that you never want to forget.

    Our wedding video is simply AMAZING! Francis was spot on with everything he captured of our day and the skill he has of putting all this footage together is huge. It is very easy to see how much preparation he does before the big day right from ensuring he gets shots to time and fit with the words of our song choices. You can tell how passionate he is about his work and genuinely enjoys what he does. He was very eager, punctual and professional and was brilliant at working alongside our photographers, kind of working in a team with them to get the best shots and footage even though they were not booked together. We hardly knew he was there half the time and captured moments we missed. He was worth every penny, we are so pleased my sister persuaded us to have a videographer a we are over the moon we chose Francis.

    We were very lucky to have the super-talented Francis capturing our wedding day at Lains barn in Wantage. He was actually recommended by a friend and, after viewing a video he produced for another couples wedding day, we were instantly sold. What immediately stood out to us, after meeting Francis, was his extremely friendly and approachable nature. In the build-up, Francis always responded to any of our messages and was very accommodating to any requests/suggestions we had – he made us feel so relaxed that it almost felt like we had a close friend working for us. This was evident on the day itself, with many of our guests commenting on how friendly and professional Francis came across, with many mistaking him for a life-long friend of ours. Having said this, it’s amazing how Francis was able to blend into the background, enabling him to capture some incredibly real and emotive footage. On the day, Francis didn’t only focus on his work, but instead made a real effort to collaborate with our photographer as well, which demonstrated his professionalism further. Francis made the creation of the video feel like a collaborative experience; this included a pre-wedding meeting where we discussed our hopes/aspirations for the video, in addition to letting us select the music overlaying the video. To sum, we are completely over the moon with the video that Francis has created for us, it has been shot in such a professional yet fun way, encapsulating our wedding perfectly – a unique and invaluable memento of the day indeed. Francis is a very capable, professional yet friendly guy who we cannot recommend highly enough. Thanks for everything and Liz and I wish you all the best for your future endeavours.
