Dragon's Back Media is a wedding videography company located in Buxton, England. This Derby-based business is run by Matt Barlow, who was trained by the BBC as a video journalist.

Services Offered

Matt takes a relaxed and documentary-style approach to filmmaking. As a former journalist, he can't help but ask your guests some questions throughout the night. This means your video will have periodic snippets of how people are feeling. However, he makes sure not to be too intrusive, as he likes to capture the wedding day as it naturally unfolds. Above all, this cinematographer wants you and your loved ones to have fun and enjoy the festivities. Dragon's Back Media shoots in 4K and uses a range of microphones to get the best sound possible. Matt also sets his films to appropriate backing music to create memorable and moving final products.
