October wedding

We were recommended to Katharina from 2 different people who had previously worked alongside her and also someone who had seen her wedding videos. It was everything and more than we were expecting. She made us feel so comfortable on the day and hardly even noticed her being around. She was well organised and very professional throughout. She kept in contact leading up to the wedding and asked us many questions on what and who we would like captured. Nothing was too much for her and she gave great directions!
The wedding day goes by so quickly you feel like you’ve missed a lot but with Katharinas films, we where able to relive it and see the day from other peoples view and it was so lovely watching it all back.
The films are outstanding and so many people have said how amazing they are. I highly recommend Katharina, she is fantastic at what she does and such great value for money!!
Thank you again!

The best wedding videographer!

Katharina captured our wedding day back in October 2023 and we couldn’t have picked a better videographer. She was professional, friendly, and most of all a highly talented filmmaker. She made us feel so comfortable and not at all awkward, Katharina is a lovely person so she fitted into our day perfectly. Her attention to detail and creativity is just amazing, and the films show how much care she puts in to the editing process. We were thrilled with how the films turned out and have watched them so many times already! So happy to have these precious memories of our day. As well as our online gallery we received a personalised USB in a lovely wooden box, such a nice touch.
We would 100% recommend Katharina to any future couples looking for a wedding videographer- you won’t regret your choice!

Outstanding Wedding Videography Experience

I am delighted to share my unequivocal recommendation for Katharina, who recently documented our wedding day. From start to finish, Katharina showcased an unparalleled level of professionalism and skill.

Her ability to capture the essence of our day with precision and creativity was truly exceptional. The resulting video surpassed our expectations, combining technical excellence with a captivating narrative that beautifully captured the most significant moments of our wedding.

Throughout the whole process, Katharina maintained excellent communication, ensuring our vision was realized seamlessly. Her friendliness and dedication to her craft make her, in my opinion, the best wedding videographer out there. I wholeheartedly recommend WeddingsByKatharina to anyone seeking a memorable and top-tier videography experience for their special day.

Kat is honestly the most fantastic videographer. From start to finish she communicated fantastically, she always responded really quickly whenever I had any questions. But more importantly she is amazing at what she does. She played a really important role in our wedding day as was so professional. Our films are stunning and we will treasure them forever. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a videographer for their wedding!

The Most Amazing Videographer

I was really on the fence as to whether we should have a videographer for our big day. It's a big outlay on top of everything else & after finally deciding to go ahead, I had a recommendation to use Katharina.

I am so, so pleased we went ahead and booked her. From start to finish she has been so professional, taking the time out to understand what type of film we wanted (candid, natural films) and really getting to know us.

On the day she was such fun & Katharina never felt intrusive, in fact most of the time I didn't even notice her. Every commented on how lovely she was & she made us feel so at ease.

We received our 1 minute film really quickly & Katharina kept us fully up to date as to when our longer films were going to arrive, and following these our USB stick, which has just arrived & is so lovely.

To the films themselves...what can I say other than they are just stunning. I can't stop watching them & they are the most perfect reminder of our most special day. We will certainly treasure them forever.

Thank you so much Katharina - you have a real talent for what you do.

Couldn't recommended highly enough

When my husband first suggested a videographer, I wasn't sure we needed one..... I couldn't have been more wrong.

Due to some time off on maternity leave, I had lots of thinking time, and much to my husbands frustration, I decided we should have a videographer a couple of months before the wedding. Katharina was recommended to us, and after looking at her website, we agreed she had a style we both really liked.

By some luck Katharina was available for our wedding date. We met with her, and we immediately got a vibe that she was perfect for what we wanted.

On the day of the wedding, she just fitted in perfectly. She absolutely blended into the day, and that was critical to us. We very much wanted candid moments captured.

We received our 1 min teaser very promptly. It was absolutely beautiful.

We then received the follow-up films and were communciated with regularly whilst waiting. She really is a pleasure to work with.

I will never admit this to my husband, but he was so right about the videographer. Katharina did an absolutely beautiful job of capturing our special day, and I can't recommend her highly enough. Her work is stunning and has brought many of our friends and family to tears watching our special day back!!

Easy going, creative, fun & worth every penny!

I don’t really know where to start with this review! Videography was a non-negotiable for me for our wedding & I spent a large amount of time researching different videographers however when I came across Katharina I had an instant connection with her films and knew she’d be the one to capture our day for us. She is so easy going and communication was open during the whole planning process. On the day Katharina bought the calm but fun energy, capturing the day so beautifully. We received our films back within the specified time frame and honestly we are blown away. I couldn’t tell you how many times we have rewatched each one haha. I would definitely recommend choosing Katharina as your videographer, you won’t regret it! Thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing us to relive our day time and time again, it’s something we will treasure forever.

Islamic Nikah Ceremony & Registry with Katharina

I booked Katharina for my wedding in May 2023 and had the worst time with wedding planning, I ended up having to cancel the venue for financial issues and Katharina was so patient with me & my husband with all the changes we had to make. She was super flexible and her communication is superb. She’s always reachable and does her best to make time to talk through everything with me and my wedding film has come out beautifully, every single detail we wanted she captured. She was also so friendly and got along with my family well and made me feel so comfortable on the day. She captured both my Islamic Nikah ceremony at home and also my wedding registry. I would 100% use her again for family events as she is amazing :)

The perfect videographer

From the moment I got in touch Katharina, she made me feel so incredibly comfortable. She was so helpful and kind and expressed genuine excitement to capture our day - even though there was still a year to go!

Throughout the process Kat was so responsive, I could reach out easily and it was always a warm and helpful response.

In the lead up to the day we met with Kat to walk through our day and it was like chatting with an old friend, we both got more and more excited about what the day could be! From then on we kept in touch sharing ideas and excitement for the big day.

When our day finally came I was genuinely over the moon to see Kat when she got there, it was like having another friend in the room. I trusted her completely to capture our day, but equally she was supportive and she helped to guide me through certain decisions that I’ve previously had no experience in! She helped me feel comfortable having my wedding outside despite the fact the weather wasn’t the perfect wedding weather, she knew it was my dream and she helped make it a reality. I will be forever grateful.

I will also be forever grateful for the footage she captured. It is breathtaking. I cannot watch her films without tearing up, laughing, smiling and seeing something new that I hadn’t spotted on the day. There is so much special footage and to be able to watch the speeches means everything. We were also blown away by how quickly we received our teaser and the rest of our footage, each new clip had us crying all over again!

All our guests praised Kat and how friendly and personable she was on the day, making every person feel comfortable - especially our little girl!

Kat is truly incredible and we both agree hiring her was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Amazing, highly recommend

Katharina did the MOST AMAZING promotional video for my Photography Business.
Being a creator myself too I had a pretty fixed idea in my head of how I wanted the video to be and Katharina did her upmost to make sure it turned out that way. I could not be happier with it.
I already highly recommend her to my wedding clients aswell as family and friends. So if you are considering a videographer for anything book her in!

Thankyou so much again.

The most amazing videographer

Katharina was amazing.. I was so worried about feeling self conscious but katharina made me feel so perfect and I was able to explain to her about my worries. She videoed the day perfectly. My kids and guests loved having her there to get the special moments and the after care was 10 out of 10. My husband was adamant he didn't want a video but since receiving the video he has agreed was the best money we spent !
Thank you Katharina you are truly talented !!!

Videographer extraordinaire on our wedding day!

Katharina did an extraordinary job for us on our wedding day: She made a beautiful set of films for us. She felt like a close friend yet is the consummate professional. She covered all the bases, yet is also highly original—an auteur. Kind and gentle, tough when she needs to be. Totally relaxed; completely focused. Fun; takes her work very seriously. Gives each moment her full attention yet somehow manages to be everywhere else too—she didn’t miss a thing. Affordable yet priceless! As much as we loved the beautiful memory that she created of our day, we just also really appreciated her good energy and presence during the day, too. Thank you!

Couldn’t be happier!

Katharina was such a wonderful part of our special days! She was able to fulfil my bridezilla request for an overnight edit of our wedding to show our guests at our reception the following day which was so special!

The videos are absolutely wonderful and really captures the spirit of the days. Katharina was so accommodating to any changes that we wanted and turned everything around really quickly.

As well as being a fantastic videographer, Katharina is also a wonderful person and was such a joy to have with us throughout the event. She was calm, kind and made us feel so comfortable.

Thank you!!
