MODERN // ALTERNATIVE WEDDING FILMS

 

If you’re looking for a modern alternative to the traditional wedding video in Scotland, the UK or anywhere in the world, I might just be your man! I’m Barry, a Geordie from Newcastle residing in Scotland, and I’m a fanatical traveller and film maker.

That’s me on the left (obviously – stop sniggering), and I like to think of myself as a ‘Film Ninja’ as I’m a very discrete, no nonsense film maker! Wedding videography in Scotland doesn’t have to be cheesy and traditional, but don’t take my word for it, check out my collection of wedding film highlights below!

The film Barry created of our wedding day is completely magical and so very special to us. It is something we will treasure for ever, and every time we watch it we are reduced to tears – of joy! But almost as importantly as the film itself is the fact that we were oblivious to all the wonderful moments Barry was capturing throughout our day. There was no pressure to pose, no feeling of being filmed at every turn and every moment he caught was real. Barry is a joy to be around and we can’t think of anyone else we would have chosen to capture our day.

Why You Should Have A Wedding Film

Not everyone who gets married chooses to commission a wedding film. You might still be deciding if you want one yourself, and you may be wondering if it is worth the expense? Well, in my opinion, film can evoke a sense of emotion from your day which is different from your photos.

A film conveys emotion through movement and sound, as well as the visual elements. The right film can send shivers up peoples spines, and take them back to relive those special moments over and over again.

Picking the right videographer for your wedding is not an easy task, and you’ve probably realised that there is a quite a ‘variety’ of styles of wedding videos from traditional documentary style to more modern, reportage styles. What you see here is my style.


Megan // Martin

Megan & Martin married at the wonderful Dalduff Farm in Ayrshire, one of my favourite venues that combines a rustic feel with some amazing backdrops.

Lynsey // Paul

Lynsey & Paul’s stunning wedding was filmed at the beautiful Three Sisters Bake @ killearn Village Hall. They has such a beautiful day and an epic sunset as well!


Lydia // Ali

The wonderful wedding of Lydia & Ali, set in the stunning grounds of Wedderburn Barns in the Scottish borders! These guys had such a great day and amazing weather!

Rebecca // Scott

Rebecca & Scott had such a brilliant day with friends and family! And where better to get married than in a teepee in your back garden! This was a joy to film!


 
As soon as we met Barry we knew that we wanted him to capture our wedding day. He is friendly and laid back and his previous videos were beautiful. He made us both, and our wedding party, feel totally at ease on the day. A lot of the time we forgot he was even there. Our wedding videos are absolutely amazing. They bring back such special memories of our day and we have watched them over and over. Friends and family have all commented on how beautiful and emotive the videos are.

Tess // Colin

Tess & Colins beautiful wedding day took place at Bogbain Farm, just outside Inverness. It was a day with nature, family, friends and lots of fun!

Carley // Fraser

Carley & Fraser’s cracking wedding day was full of style and beautiful details, and Kirknewton Stables provided the perfect backdrop for an incredible day!


So Why Should You Get In Touch With Me?

So you’ve looked at a few of my wedding videos, maybe you like them (woop!). But picking the right videographer for your wedding day is very important! Here’s how I work on your wedding day:

The Best Films Are Those Where People Are Captured Acting Naturally

I’m a no nonsense film maker. I won’t turn up with huge video cameras and stick them in peoples faces, I’ll be inconspicuous with my camera and I’ll be dressed just as smart as the guests. I’m passionate about crafting lovely looking films. Your guests will barely notice me, which is the only way to catch people at their best. Oh and I have been known to open and serve prosecco and champagne as you get ready: what’s not to like?

All Day = All Day

My package is very simple. For me to create a wedding film of your day, I need to be there ALL DAY. So I’ll be there for the bridal preparations (and groom preparations if on same site), the ceremony, mingling between ceremony and dinner, the speeches and the first few dances. So normally from 10am until about 8pm (10 hours).

I do this because I’m there to capture your wedding day, not part of it.


Sarah // Neil

Sarah & Neils wonderful wedding was filmed at Crear on the West coast of Scotland. The ceremony was a highlight for me, filming on a sunny day on the beach near the venue. What a day they had!

Emma // Mark

Emma & Mark married in the beautiful grounds of Monachyle Mhor! They were surrounded by friends, family, epic scenery and beautiful views, what a way to spend your wedding day!


YOUR PACKAGE

I offer 1 main package for your day, which covers bridal prep in the morning until the first 3 dances, and you’ll receive the videos below:

3 – 5 Minute Highlights Film

This is the highlights film that you’ve seen on my website. A snapshot of your day encapsulated in one song. Its the most easily shared version, as its short enough to show people wherever you are, yet long enough to deliver the emotion and experience of your special day. This is a firm favourite of all my couples, one to be watched over and over again.

20 – 25 Minute Extended Highlights Film

Once you’ve had a taster of your day with the shorter highlights, settle in for a longer viewing with this edit! I’ll craft a film that shows the emotion and feeling of your wedding day, all accompanied by a cracking soundtrack. Relive everything from the preparations in the morning, right through to the party in the evening, and everything in between.

The Full Ceremony & Speeches

The most important (and nerve racking) part of the day, and I’ll capture it all. From the bride walking down the aisle, to the readings and vows, you’ll receive a copy of the full ceremony to cherish forever.

You’ll also receive a copy of all the speeches, so you can relive those witty one liners and dodgy jokes for years to come!

The Dancing

Ah the first dance. Whether you drift from side by side, or deliver a well rehearsed, choreographed glee esque performance, I’ll capture it all.

And I’ll stay for a couple of songs after to record some moves being busted on the dance floor too.
