About us

Founded in 2017 by Ellyn Hughes. She has 10 years of experience working in the film industry in Los Angeles, Toronto and the UK. She always had a love of weddings and would often volunteer to film events for friends, but when the opportunity arose to make it a business, she jumped at the chance.

Now we exclusively film weddings, and we travel all over the UK to do it. The team of trusted camera operators is constantly growing, but everyone is incredibly talented and would make a great addition to your wedding day.

Lovely Video

Bright and Beautiful Films did an incredible job capturing my wedding. The video is so much nicer than I was expecting and the turn around time was really quick. I'm so glad we decided to get a wedding video done!

Lovely Video

We were so lucky we found Ellyn at Bright and Beautiful films. She was so lovely and helpful on the day and the end result was so much more than what we were hoping for.

Outstanding Value

We knew we wanted a wedding video but stuggled to find anyone who would deliver the style we were after. Then we found Bright and Beautiful films. Ellyn was so involved in the early stages, learning about us and what the wedding would be like. then on the wedding day she was there bright and early, hustled all day and didnt leave until the dancing was getting sloppy. It is so amazing having this keepsake video now. Thanks so much Ellyn!

Best Videographer Ever

Ellyn was so amazing! from initially enquiring right up until the big day she was brilliant. weddings are stressful, emailing and talking to numerous suppliers, but Ellyn made it a breeze, she gave us all the relevant information at the right times, and came up with things we hadnt even thought of. She arrived within plenty of time on the big day with my favourite coffee in hand, along with picking up some prosecco for my bridal party as we had ran out (life saver). She was a pleasure to be around and is so friendly, she had previously been to our wedding venue to seek out good filming spots which obviously saved time on the day as she knew exactly where to go, (again, live saver) as time is very precious on the day. The video exceeded our expectations, it is absolutely brilliant! We cant thank Ellyn enough for what she did, it was the best day of our lives and because of her we get to relive it every time we watch the video! I will recommend Ellyn to anyone getting married, having her was the best decision we made!

Fabulous choice

Ellyn is an absolute star! She filmed our wedding in August 2019 & we absolutely love the finished film. Capturing a full day in 10 minutes isn't an easy thing yet it's exactly what we got - it brought back every single second when we watched it. On top of that she was a pleasure to be around all day and we never once felt awkward. I can't recommend her and her work enough! If you want a top class videographer & memories to last a lifetime, look no further!

Ellyn was an amazing part of our day, in the best possible way we hardly knew they were there, they worked effectively with the photographer. Our videos of our day were spectacular and have captured our hearts and the amazing moments throughout our special day we could not be more grateful.

"I'd recommend Bright and Beautiful Films to anybody looking to have their wedding day memories captured in video. Ellyn was an absolute pleasure to work with, always reassuring us that it's what we want that's important. She brought her own flair to the table, but took the time across every step of the journey to gauge our thoughts and take on board suggestions. Artistically and technically speaking, her ability is fantastic, with the final film boasting a range of high quality shots, edited together with precise care and attention that tells the story of our day and will allow us to remember it fully for years to come. Thanks Ellyn!"

“When my husband and I first started wedding planning we were not too keen on having a video. I didn't like the idea of a video capturing me when I wasn't smiling at the camera - or being caught off guard pulling a horrid face. But then I met Ellyn at a wedding fair and she completely sold the experience to me. She was just fab and fun and made the day so special! Needless to say I loved every minute of the wedding and having something so immersive than just the photo album means I can relive that day over and over again anytime I want! If you're unsure, just go for it you will not regret it!!”
