"It's all about the emotions..." essentially that's what my wedding films are all about capturing those beautiful emotions experienced on what is for most people
one of the most memorable in their life. I focus on the couple and what they are experiencing. I like to capture those candid shots- thoughtful, contemplative, emotional
joyful, tearful- the emotions you experience on your wedding day are like no other and I want to create a wedding films that will enable you to re-live your wedding day over and over again. Often the first reaction of a couple who watch their wedding film I have just sent them is they tell me it made them laugh & cry- that makes me happy!
You notice I mention that I create wedding films not videos. There is a difference. A film has that cinematic quality that immediately draws you in is characterised by that dreamy feel. It doesn't just capture the event (like the news) it capture the days events beautifully and with a creative eye. I like to make use of lighting and composition. A cinematic wedding film should tell 'your story' but in an unpredictable way. My wedding films avoid being overly formulaic and while it's yes a wedding and we all know what is going to happen, I think it's important to tell the story creatively keeping the viewer engaged- couple often tell me that they watched my wedding film multiple times and saw something different each time.
I film with broadcast quality video cameras and use professional audio recording equipment. I film discreetly and often times I film in a way that people don't know they are being filmed that way I capture 'what is' and avoid lots of forced or posed shots which can make a wedding film a little cheesy if you are not careful.
I feel it's important to consult and if possible meet with the couple before the wedding day to get to know a little something about them- their style. This enables me tom create a wedding film that is truly theirs and captures some of the essence of the couple in it. You will notice that my wedding films are all different I don't follow a set formula but get the essential elements with the couples essence woven in.

"Julian's work is breathtakingly beautiful! We are so glad that we were lucky enough to book him for our wedding. From the very first email he was professional, communicative and a pleasure to deal with. On the wedding day he was utterly amazing too. He was so easy to get along with and puts you at ease straight away and we really did not notice him at all. He is very good at blending in and capturing the most authentic and natural shots. Our wedding trailer literally had me crying within seconds! Julian took beautiful shots and his editing skills are perfect! We can't even begin to explain how happy we are with the trailer and how grateful we are to Julian for being a part of our day. We can't wait to see our full length film, we know it's going to be as magical as the trailer! Thank you so much Julian, we can't thank you enough!

WOW.....what can we say about Julian and his videography!! He was just amazing from start to finish!! From meeting Julian a few weeks before the wedding, to seeing him again on the wedding day......he put us both at ease from day one!! Julian listened to everything we wanted and this shone through in the amazing video we have recently received!! Julian has managed to capture moments even we had forgotten from the day.......moments during the ceremony, to the speeches and even a few dance moves being thrown out on the dance floor!! we have already watched the video many times, as our family and friends have, and we all think it's truly amazing!! It's given us a chance to relive our wedding day over and over again........which just means everything!! If you are looking for a videographer......please do not look any further!! Julian is fabulously talented and you will not be disappointed!! Thanks so much Julian........Anna & Dave xxx

Firstly we absolutely love the video and have watched it 3 times already this evening! Twice with popcorn and wine ha ha.
Things we love -
*Simon's monologues - a real bonus. No hint of the heart beating sound, an incredible way of documenting his thoughts and I hear something different each time. He also loves this and thinks it is a highlight, your questions have led to some lovely answers.
*video of people arriving as this is something I as a bride didn't get to see. This brings to life all the pre wedding excitement of the guests.
*at 1.03 you captured the children's giddiness beautifully
*love the flower arch shot, the Euxton sign etc.
*from 2.12 when we have our first moment together at the front is just WOW - and the part where you have caught his reassuring touch of my hand with his thumb is spine tinglingly beautiful
*the venue shots are beautiful, love the close ups of scrabble letters, flowers etc.
*speeches are great
*we love all the shots after the meal of people relaxing and chatting, these are fab and show something we don't get to see ourselves as bride and groom
*love the dancing at 16.16 - fab capture
*Love the ending of the confetti shotWOW! What else can we say, we feel so blessed that you have offered this service to us. We will write reviews, share it far and wide and anyhting else you need us to do. Please could we have your address so that we can arrange a thank you?
