About

Friends Film it is a do-it-yourself wedding videography and video editing service based in Berkshire, England. They are a perfect choice for couples looking for a fun, interactive videography experience. Instead of sending strangers to film your wedding, they will send one or two Sony HD cameras for your friends to use. After the wedding, they will collect the cameras and then turn the footage into a fun, unique, high-quality video, complete with titles and music. Friends Film it has been in business for more than a decade, and they would love to put their video editing expertise to work for you.

Services Offered

Friends Film it delivers and collects anywhere in the United Kingdom. They offer affordable one and two-camera packages; your camera comes with a video tutorial, spare battery, tripod, and carry case. Their most popular package includes a professionally-edited highlight film, edited videos of the ceremony and speeches, a three-minute sneak peek trailer, and all the unedited footage from your day, all on a single USB.

Amazing personalized video editing

We used Friends Film It because we wanted to keep things cheaper than using a professional videographer and because we were both a shy couple who wanted to focus on time with our friends and family and not feel “invaded”. The cameras were super easy to use and the tripod was great for setting up during the ceremony. The end product of the video with our custom music was just perfect. Sophie was great at every step - organizing the drop off, collection options to liaising over editing. A highly recommended company!

Great idea!

This is such a great idea that gets your guests involved in the fun of capturing the day. The edited footage we got back is a great memory of the day and the personal choice of music is a nice touch. A great alternative to hiring a professional videographer.

Good supplier

We were really happy with the end result of our videos and it was wonderful to capture the day at a lot less cost than a videographer. The quality of the film is good and it was put together in a timely fashion after the wedding.

Amazing quality and affordable

Sophie was amazing from start to finish. She made an epic wedding video and a shorter one for socials. She listened to what we wanted and delivered. If anyone is looking for an affordable video of their day, I really recommend this. It was the best thing we invested in for the wedding as now we have not only the amazing videos Sophie created, but also all of the unedited footage of the day to look back on forever. We can’t thank Sophie enough!

Amazing! Exactly what we were looking for

Sophie’s communication has been brilliant the whole time! She made a stressful time easier and is very friendly and efficient. Our video was perfect and exactly the vibe we were after. It was great to see it all come together and the bonus of having the extra full ceremony and speech footage made for an emotional reminder, something we will be sure to cherish.
Sophie clearly has a great eye for the best bits to include and choosing your own music was fun and added an extra personal touch!

From personal experience we asked a family friend to manage and do the filming for us on the day rather than choosing someone from the wedding party. If you can do this I would highly suggest it to make sure the best footage is captured. We kept hold of the prep footage ourselves between boys and girls 😀

Will be sure to recommend 💖 thanks again xx

Most wonderful experience

Perfect for couples on a budget and to find an alternative way to capture their perfect day. We had a wonderful experience with them. Very accommodating as we had to postpone because of covid. We had a hassle free on rearranging our day. I couldn’t thank them enough for their flexibility and understanding throughout. The cameras were easy to use and set up. You have more creativity on how you want to capture your day. You have lots of options to choose from whether you want them to edit for you or edit yourself. Friends film can accommodate for all you budget needs. I would recommend them any day!!!

Amazing!! You would not regret using this service.

I couldn’t have been more in love with the video from our wedding! It was so much better than the photos and because it was filmed by our friends and family they knew which bits to capture and what would be really meaningful to us. Sophie picked out all the best bits for the short reel! Excellent!!
