Why a wedding film?
After weeks, months and years of planning every last detail from the arrangements of the flowers to the colour of the bridesmaids shoes, the big day will finally come round. But once your day comes to an end, what are you left with? The cake will be long eaten, the flowers will wilt, your guests will have all left and the dress will be back in its box.
Yes you will have the memories. You will have the photos and the stories. But none of these will allow you to truly experience the sights, sounds and atmosphere of your special day again. To watch back all the reactions, tears and smiles and to feel that unique love and joy all over again, all without the inevitable stresses and distractions the day itself will bring.
The beauty of a wedding film is that it will enable you to re-live the biggest day of your life again and again, whenever you want and wherever you want. The vows, the speeches, the dancing. Things that photography alone will simply be unable to capture. It will allow you to enjoy your day from a fresh perspective and it will make sure you don’t miss out on those moments you missed during the chaos of the day.
As the bride and groom, you will obviously be the number one focal point of the day. You will undoubtedly be left greeting and making time for all your guests and it is inevitable that the day will shoot past you in a blur, leaving you to experience just a fraction of the whole event. After spending a huge amount of time and money making sure that even the tiniest of details are just how you want them, you may be left feeling that you have missed out on a lot. Yes, photos will help you to remember how everyone looked, but film brings out higher levels of emotion and can really take you back to your special day in a way that nothing else quite can.
Your wedding film is also a gift for those closest to you. It is a chance for friends and family who couldn’t make the day itself to feel a part of your wedding. Maybe a great gran who isn’t quite up to it or a group of friends who have emigrated. Your film will allow them to relive all of those special moments. The slight slip up in the vows, the first dance, that ever special moment of the all important kiss.
Over time, your film will grow in value and become a treasured part of your family history. It will be a priceless document of your day, passed on to future generations. A chance for you to share your wedding day, maybe with your future children and grandchildren. A chance for them to see and hear their past relatives having the time of their lives. A chance for you to see all of your family and friends gathered together, maybe for just the one time, in a unique setting laid out just for you.
Your wedding day is unique and unrepeatable. Don’t miss this one opportunity you have to preserve the memories, sights and sounds of your special day in a unique and stylish way, keeping the experience with you forever.
Inspiration can go a long way when creating something truly great. Because of this, we want to inspire and be inspired by our couples.
We believe that wedding cinematography is its own art form and therefore a skill that has to be mastered to be delivered. Our experience and past feedback proves that we have mastered what we do.
We realise that each wedding is unique, and therefore each and every film James Wray Wedding Films create is personalised and handcrafted for our couples. No wedding is ever the same and therefore no film we make is ever the same.
We use high definition professional cameras, a range of studio-standard discrete lavalier and small microphones and we use the leading industry standard in editing software to put the films together. We also pay for fully licensed music for each of our films by both independant and mainstream artists.
We realise that weddings aren’t cheap yet this shouldn’t stop anyone from getting the most from their special day. Despite being one of the finest and most popular wedding videographers in the country, we aim to be of incredible value for money. Best of all, all of our packages include a 15-20 minute cinematic film, a 3-5 minute trailer and a full length professionally recorded film of your service and speeches.
We go beyond what most other wedding videographers offer and we do it at a lower price. In our experience, we have found they often produce films that are long, boring and not something you or your friends and family would like to watch very often. Our films are a cinematic reflection of our couples relationship, their day and their story. We use only the highest levels of cinematography and our films are made to make sure they remain something you will want to watch over and over again.
More than anything, we love what we do. This love shows through the films we make, making sure we covers every last detail and enabling us to maintain our high standards of work.
If what you see on this website inspires you, then we would love to hear from you. Let’s meet for coffee and have a chat about the biggest day of your life!
