With our roots in film, music videos and television production, we are a studio that specialises in premium wedding cinematography with a focus on emotional storytelling.
Our films are less focused on current trends and more on telling poetic stories in a timeless style, showcasing the beauty of the surroundings and the individuality of our clients.
Every couple we work with has their own stories and our films are designed to emphasise their personalities as well as the journey that has led to their wedding.
Our goal is to achieve elegant, cinematic wedding films without compromising the magical experience of your day.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How far in advance should I contact you?
Usually people book anywhere from 18 months to just a few weeks beforehand. For the latter it's typically during the winter months that we're available on such short notice.
Do you cover more than one wedding per day?
No. Weddings are incredibly busy days and I'm filming almost solidly from first thing in the morning to late at night so it wouldn't be possible to do two weddings in one day.
Are you able to travel?
I'm based in Surrey but am happy to travel all across the UK.
Is there a charge for travelling?
There isn't a charge for any wedding under 60 miles from my office (Banstead); for weddings more than 60 miles away I would charge travel expenses at a rate of 12p/mile.
What kind of technology do you use?
The 2 cameras I use are the Panasonic GH5 and the Canon C300. They're cameras that I predominantly used during my television career and they give incredibly high quality videos.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
We have two packages and they are all encompassing so you would simply pay that fee and we'll be there the whole day at no additional cost.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
We'll be there on your wedding day from start to finish, however long it takes. If there's anything else that you require then let us know and, as long as we're not too busy, we'll probably be able to do a bit extra.
What are the forms of payment?
The easiest form of payment is a bank transfer.

Thanks so much for the films you made. We had 2 films made for us, one short and glamorous and the other longer (25 mins) and more personal...but still beautiful.Sent on 19/10/2019

James The Great
James did our wedding on Saturday 8th February 2020 and it is not an exaggeration to say this man is not just a videographer, he is a magician. I found him via Google search late last year and after watching the videos on his site I told my wife, "this is the guy". So we booked him, and close to the wedding we spoke briefly to explain what would happen on the day.Sent on 04/03/2020
On the wedding day he was extremely professional, punctual, friendly, helpful beyond his remit and collaborative with the photographers.
After the day I had full confidence that he will make a video for my wife and I to cherish, on our minimoon I said to her that he will make it magical. The biggest compliment I can give is that he did just that. I was suffering from a little bit of post wedding blues and the video cured that and reminded me just how great a day it was. The music selection accompanying the video was perfect, he even made me look like a half decent dancer which in itself is sorcery because I was born with two left feet. There is not a single thing I would change about it. I will be forever thankful to him.
Trust James to make your day even more special.
