Hi I'm James, a former TV Director turned award-winning wedding filmmaker - this job is far more fun & creative! I’m relaxed, and friendly and love helping couples to feel calm on their big day.


What do you do if we're not a lovey-dovey couple?

Not a problem at all. It's a very weird thing to try to pose for cameras so it's my job to make you feel as relaxed as possible. Getting shots of couples walking in beautiful environments makes for stunning video so please don't worry about having to act how you think we want you to act. It's one of the best days of your life and we want you to enjoy every part of it.

How long will you be there on the day?

I'm always there from bridal prep until 1st dance...actually a bit after the first dance really as I want to film everyone on the dance floor! I'm also not too strict on the timing as well, so if there haven't been enough people on the dance floor to make for a great ending to the film then I'll stick around till we've got it.

How do you work with photographers?

I love the photographers! They're basically my work buddy for the day. All my Instagram is filled with the photographers I've worked with. We're pretty much in the same place at the same time for most of the day so we're always trying to help each other out and not get in each other's way. Honestly, I'd be sad if you said you weren't having a photographer.

How long do the 'couple portrait' shots take?

This is usually a 20-minute period between the ceremony and speeches...and maybe a sunset shot as well. I do the shots at the same time as the photographer and it works so much better than doing it separately as we're able to keep the mood light and be quick. At my wedding, I just wanted to mingle with everyone so I completely understand if you don't want to spend loads of time with couple shots. But if you wanted to spend 3 hours doing couple shots (a bit excessive) then I'm there!

How much does it cost?

The prices range from £995 - £1595 but for all of the packages, I'll be with you guys for the full 12 hours as I've had a few couples that wanted to change their packages after the wedding...which isn't a problem at all.


We are blown away by the beautiful videos James has captured of our special day and will cherish them forever! The videos perfectly show the love that we felt on the day and also captured parts of the day that we weren’t able to take in at the time - like our guests' reactions and the cocktail reception whilst we were off having photos! Every little detail is just perfect, right down to the music choice which made the video extra special for us. I can only imagine how much time it takes to pull together the best parts of the day in such a beautiful, emotional way. It was so lovely to have James as part of our day - he was reliable and very quick to respond in the lead-up to the day, and arrived within plenty of time to check out the venue to make sure he knew where to get all the best shots! He was so easy to get on with and made us feel at ease and relaxed straight away and it did just feel like another friend at our wedding. Thanks so much James - we could not have picked a better videographer and could not recommend enough.

From the moment we enquired with James regarding full-day videography for our February wedding, he couldn’t have been more helpful if he tried. James talked us through each of the package options in detail, answering each and every question we had in addition to taking the time to listen to what we really wanted to capture in order to recommend the most appropriate package for our needs and requirements. James’ professionalism followed through to our wedding at Moxhull Hall where we can honestly say he didn’t stop! James captured each part of the day beautifully, even recommending shots and perspectives that we would never have noticed E.G. the sunset - Which turned out incredible. Not only did we notice James’ outstanding work ethic, but since our wedding day numerous of our guests were in awe of his dedication throughout the 12 hours. We didn’t for one minute feel any rush, pressure or stress, James was totally gentle, understanding and professional in every aspect. When booking with James, we highlighted the fact we’d love our social media wedding trailer back as a priority to post to our friends & family, James delivered this within a week and a half which made our day! Finally, we have since received our full wedding video in addition to our short highlight film & it’s truly had us in tears. We can’t thank James enough & would recommend him full-heartedly. We hope to work with James again in the future for other ventures. Thank you James.

We could not have made a better choice for a wedding videographer than James. His videos speak for themselves (seriously, go watch one- they are INCREDIBLE) - the shots and camera quality are breathtaking! Watching them feels like you have a vision greater than 20/20! Our videos are absolutely amazing, so gorgeous, well-edited with lovely music and literally perfect in every way. I cannot say enough good things about them. On such a crazy and wonderful day that goes by way too fast, it is truly a gift to be able to rewatch the whole thing in such a beautiful fashion. When we were searching for videographers, James was the easiest choice to make. I did not see any videographer's work come even close to the impeccable quality of James! You would think his videos are straight out of Hollywood which is a testament to his incredible talent. The cherry on top is that he is just the nicest guy and a joy to have following you around all day - he has great energy and never feels like he is in the way. He also got along fantastically with our photographer even though they had never met! If you are going to prioritize anything in your wedding, James videography is the way to go! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts James, your videos are such a gift! ❤️

I don't even know where to start! James was friendly and funny and made us feel at ease right from the beginning. He was such an important part of our day along with our photographer! They really added to the experience. It's true what they say, spend the money where it is important to you. If you want someone who is going to add to your day then book James! I can't imagine having anyone else there to capture our special day! We don't have the words to thank him for being so incredible!

James did our wedding videography for us and we were blown away by the footage!! He did an amazing job of capturing the day, all the funny moments and people's personalities. He was super responsive and helpful before and after our wedding day, I wanted a small change to the music when he sent our highlights video through and he did it straight away! He's also one of the loveliest, most genuine and most friendly people I've worked with. We are so glad we picked him as our videographer! We got lots of comments on how lovely he was, got on so well with our guests and worked very well with our photographer. Would definitely recommend, we 100% made the right choice choosing James. Thank you!!
