Many people dream of their big day long before the question is popped. It’s something that’ll mean the world to you guys when it happens & we understood the importance of telling these unique fairy-tales early on. We’ve evolved into some of the finest cinematic wedding videographers in the UK with a distinct modern brand.
Our Cinematic wedding videography attracts relaxed couples looking for coverage without all the fuss. We tend to have a ‘standoffish’ approach best described as natural & unobtrusive. We know a large percentage will hate the thought of being in front of a professional camera, so keeping things simple and asking very little from you allows you to enjoy your day & be yourselves.
We also like to tell the whole story so your highlight film represents all the very best parts of your day. Our regular coverage begins around 3 hours before the ceremony and ends a couple of songs after the first dance (making sure we capture the party vibe before departing).
The main focus of this blog is to showcase 4 cinematic wedding films to give you a well-rounded view of what we can offer you for your wedding day. Grab the tissues & popcorn – you’ll love these.
First up is the wedding of David & Mohini at the wonderful Braxted Park. This wedding actually took place over 2 days & we were on hand to capture their intimate story from start to finish. You’ll see just how much this meant to both of them. They were a super chilled couple and incredibly in love on a sun-kissed few days in August. They opted for a 15-minute highlights film with 2 photographers & 2 videographers.
Now I’d like to turn your attention to our second Hi-end film that took place in Surrey. Andy & Grace got ready at home (which was a stone’s throw from their wedding venue) – the popular & impeccably kept Silvermere Inn on the lake. They tied the knot at a nearby church and headed back to enjoy the celebrations & the picturesque views over lake Silvermere.
This is a 2-3 minute highlight film from their day which is perfect for sharing with friends and family & can be either purchased as an add-on to your chosen package or be included in our platinum film package as standard which also features a 14-15 minute edit.
Moving on to the third Cinematic wedding videography film in this blog & we’re at the charming Colville Hall in Essex. Our lovely couple – Carmel & Dan expressed to us that they weren’t really ones for the camera & preferred, for the most part, to blend in with the guests with their wedding being captured pretty much as it unfolds. They had a beautiful summer vibe & wanted to also incorporate some of the grounds at Colville during their couple shots. This is their story & their chosen 10-minute highlights film from our Gold package using our typical cinematic style.
The last video to feature in my blog is Lily & Sang’s 10-minute cinematic wedding film shot at the rather grand Moor Park venue in Hertfordshire. Their day flowed beautifully and they’re both clearly very family orientated people. This was an emotional one and again very relaxed. You’ll start to see how we keep a consistent feel to our work even though every single wedding is a unique event.
Check their big day out and feel free to leave a comment in the comment section below to let us know what you think of our approach. We love getting feedback from couples 🙂
Don’t just take our word for it. Below are some rave reviews from our previous couples that enjoyed the whole experience:
“Would highly recommend – they were really lovely on the day and produced a super special and professional highlights film that we will treasure forever. They accommodated our requests to tweak things and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. A top class supplier! ~ Lauren x“
“Great work, the team went above and beyond to capture a moving tribute of our special day that will allow us to revisit those cherished moments for years to come. We left the team to their own devices trusting that they would deliver to the highest standards and that is exactly what they did. Thanks for all your hard work ~ Jon“
“When arranging our wedding, my husband and I really struggled to decide if getting a video was really worth the money…would we really watch it? After getting back the footage and seeing how beautifully it was all put together, I can honestly say it was the best money we spent over the entire day. Having the memories like that to re live was truly amazing. They didn’t intrude on our day at all but still some how managed to capture every little moment, truly a complete art. Everyone we show say how gorgeous it is, and how they feel like they are there again bringing back the lovely memories of the day. I would highly recommend them and will cherish what they created for us. Thank you so much for your hard work and time making it so magical, honestly just blown away! ~ Natalie“
“Just simply amazing!! No other words highly recommend ~ Dona“
“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this lot! They were brilliant, listened to our demands (and we were nightmare clients) and we have a fantastic wedding video we are proud to show our friends and family. They made us feel at ease and were friendly and professional throughout the whole day. Many thanks to the whole team! ~ Neil“
Cinematic wedding videography & photography combined
It’s worth considering hiring the services of a company that offers both wedding videography and photography if that’s what you require.
This is actually our unique selling point because we’ve worked at weddings so often together as a team, that we almost have a strange telepathy thing going on. We know exactly what we want from each stage of the day so you’ll hardly know we’re there.
What tends to happen if you have two separate companies that haven’t worked together before is competition for the best shots or lack of communication to suit their own agenda and only get what they need. I do have to express that this doesn’t include everyone in the industry because sometimes things work out wonderfully well, but it’s a little food for thought. You can check out my wedding photography packages and prices here if you haven’t yet booked a photographer.
So there you have it. Chris Woodman Photography offers cinematic wedding videographers in Essex, UK as a comprehensive service for you. We can of course look into offering a tailored service to suit your needs. We have some amazing add-ons too like drone pilots, 1-minute Instagram edits, raw footage and more.
