10/10 Videographer

We decided quite late in our planning process that we wanted a videographer and we are SO glad we did, we were so lucky to be able to have James document our wedding. We had a zoom chat with him before committing and felt at ease with him straight away and knew he'd be a perfect match for us which we thought was super important. He listened to all of our requirements and was flexible to suit our needs. On the day itself he worked seamlessly with our photographer who we booked separately and blended in during our ceremony, but was able to get the balance perfectly of blending in but also getting the best out of our guests for the rest of the occasion. The video was exactly what we wanted and it felt priceless to be able to watch back the wedding from so many different points of view. He was also happy to make any adjustments afterwards (which we didn't need) We feel so lucky to have had found James and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a videographer.

James is a star, we now have a permanent momento that captures our day perfectly

James was the videographer for our wedding and we cannot recommend him highly enough! He went over and above to accommodate our requests and we are delighted with the end result, having a permanent momento that captures our day perfectly is priceless. James communicated brilliantly throughout, scheduling calls to get to know us, what we were looking for and to regularly checking in to make sure he knew the schedule for the day. He did a great job of capturing our day in a non-intrusive way, even getting some amazing drone footage in December! James worked brilliantly with our photographer as well which made us and our guests super relaxed. Choosing a videographer can be a minefield but we are so glad we chose James.

Wonderful film to relive our wedding day

We were so thrilled with the video James produced of our wedding day. Our wedding day went by in a flash and it is hard to take everything in so the video is a wonderful reminder that really captured the atmosphere in such an authentic way and really does take us right back.

James has a lovely natural. relaxed and obtrusive style and he worked really well with our photographer. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to other couples.

The Perfect Experience from Beginning to End

James was absolutely perfect from the moment we jumped on a call with him. He was so enthusiastic, even meeting with us a few times at Winchester Cathedral ahead of our big day. He had so many ideas, and the finished product was the most beautiful wedding videos we could have dreamt of. The drone footage was incredible too, and he even kindly sent over extra footage of the harpist as he knew it was a part of the ceremony we were so looking forward to watching and listening to again and again.

Incredible

James was an incredible person to work with for my Wedding, he was sweet and charming and put myself and my guests at ease throughout the entire wedding, he never made me feel as though I was on display and shot some beautiful candid moments throughout the day. The final edits were absolutely stunning, they captured the beauty of the day and the joy of all the guests, I was so amazed at his ability to seamlessly edit together songs, speech and everything in between and the final work is something I will cherish forever, Thank you so Much James!!!

Most beautiful wedding video!

My husband and I were very choosy when it came to our videographer - at a friends wedding, the person was right in the couples faces and it wasn't what we wanted for our day.

James couldn't be more different. He is calm and considerate, working closely to us without feeling like he was getting in the way. Always professional and friendly, he put us and all our guests at ease. He made our wedding look magical without taking away the realism of the day, catching all the 'perfectly imperfect' moments that made our day really ours.

If there is one thing you should invest in for your wedding it's a videographer and you should choose James to film it.

Great wedding videographer!

James worked really well with our photographer to capture the key moments of our day, from the ceremony right through to the evening. He was very professional on the day and great with our guests. We loved how he worked with our music choices to translate to energy of our day on film. Thank you James!

Amazing Videographer

James was so approachable and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. He went above and beyond and made sure we were happy during the whole process. The finished video was so much better than what we imagined, such high quality footage. He even personalised the pictures to play our first dance in the background! Highly recommend! Thank you James!
