Every film James creates is unique to each couple with three key principles:

We Tell Your Story

To create your film, James learns about you, your plans, the moments and people that matter to you on your wedding day and from these moments and from the people who you love he looks for stories to create a film with your personal story at its very heart.

We Make It Personal

James doesn’t have a set approach or template to wedding films, every film is uniquely edited to create a film that looks, sounds and feels like you’ve stepped back into your wedding day, so you can evoke the memories of your wedding for years to come.

We are Professional and Discrete

James films in a low key, subtle style with small unobtrusive equipment, minimal distraction and very limited intervention on your wedding day. He wants to create a true story of your day so he doesn’t create or influence moments, it’s a very subtle approach which blends into the background effortlessly.
