Hello, we're Special Day Films - we're wedding videographers based in York, North Yorkshire and we specialise in a blend of cinematic and candid event videography.

We've been lucky to film weddings up and down the country - in actual castles and village halls and everything in between. Regardless of the setting or the budget, what we always love is seeing the couple's personalities woven into their big day. Sometimes it's stuff like in-jokes for the table names or unconventional music choices. But it's also those unplanned moments, like the bride getting locked in the wedding car (this actually happened), or a grandparent's first ever Jagerbomb. These are the things we'll be looking out for when we're making the film of your special day.

People often tell us that they forgot we were there on the day (not usually a compliment!) so you don't need to worry about us getting in the way, and it means a lot to us that so many of our bookings come through word of mouth - it's always nice to catch up with a familiar face! We take pride in being down-to-earth and approachable, so if you have any questions at all, please get in touch.

So if you're at the early stages and looking for wedding inspiration or deep in it and putting the final touches to the master plan, let's chat!

Services Offered

We take great pride in our work, and our pricing reflects the time and attention we invest in every project (we want to be the best wedding videographer in Yorkshire AND the best value!).
We offer two flexible packages you can use as a starting point. From there, you have the freedom to add, change, or remove elements entirely to create a bespoke video package that suits your preferences and budget perfectly.

Please note, here at Special Day Films, we are committed to supporting equality, diversity and inclusion. We fundamentally believe that everyone should be able to marry the person they love, and we would be proud to help you celebrate this special day. We cater to all faiths and we use "wedding" as shorthand to cover civil ceremonies, Nikkah, handfasting, tying the knot, vow renewals or any other kind of unity ceremony! We wholeheartedly welcome enquiries from the LGBTQIA+ community and support marriage equality just as we support equality elsewhere.

Wedding - October 2022

Booking special day films for our wedding day was one of the best things we did for our day. They are professional, kind and their attention to detail was amazing. One of my main things I wanted was a confetti tunnel outside and these guys made it happen and is without a doubt my favourite memory of the day, I have watched it back along with the full wedding video on multiple times however Adam has gone out of his way to clip just the confetti shot for me so I could watch it on my phone at anytime. Their prices are very reasonable compared to others out there, we weren't sure if a videographer was going to fit in our budget but I am so glad it did, getting our wedding videoed by these guys was the best thing we did for sure. Would not question booking them for future events and will be reccoomending them to other people in the future for their wedding too - thanks so much again special day films.

Wedding Video

Couldn’t have asked for a more professional team to video our wedding. They got every aspect of the day and were very discreet when filming. They worked with us to get exactly what we wanted, down to the music that was featured on the video. Very easy to contact and quick to respond both before and after our wedding. Would highly recommend.

Excellent from start to finish

Special Day Films were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. I initially I didn't think we needed a videographer but so glad we did. They captured so many special moments, I loved being able to see everyone arriving whilst I'd been getting ready, and all the chaos wth both the bride and groom! They even saved the day with some batteries for our Instax camera! The turn around for the video was really quick and they were communicative both in planning and after the wedding. The finished product was better than I could have imagined, just natural and candid and they really just felt part of the wedding party. I wholeheartedly recommend the team and if you're on the fence about having a videographer I'd say go for it, Special Day Films are excellent value and fantastic quality, you won't regret it.
