Since shooting my first wedding in 2010 (yes, I was young), I've developed my shooting style into what it is now. I take huge pride in providing incredibly relaxed & unobtrusive filmmaking, which transpires into beautiful, sensitive & engaging wedding films.

I have grown up shooting weddings and from the age of 15 have learnt the very basics and every lesson the hard way. I've also experienced a shift in the way I see a wedding.

Over time my job has become more than just filming people. It's about capturing an atmosphere, a location, the sounds of where you are, the love that you share & the people that surround you. I've learnt how to craft all of these things into one piece of seamless film to tell a story and draw real emotion. There aren't many situations where I aim to make people cry. But this is one of them; & I feel truly lucky. 

I love to travel & tell unique & out of the ordinary stories, in the most natural & raw way possible. If you have a story to tell or an amazing place in mind for your wedding, I'd love to hear more about it.

If you would like to see an example of a full film, please feel free to ask.

We undertake a huge amount of other work outside of weddings; with this in mind we take a maximum of 15 bookings per year to ensure no quality is compromised & we can spend as much time as we need piecing each film together. 

For information about our prices and how we can adapt our packages to suit you, please do not hesitate to get in touch.


A few kind words...

"Ben is so good at seeing people’s personalities and he has a kind, romantic eye but most of all because he so intelligently captures the joy of the day. The highlights video that he put together so quickly so that we could take it to our gran to see made us cry with joy; to watch the day as we had wanted it to look the whole time we were planning for it. All the friends and family who have seen the video have commented on its outstanding standard and many people have told us that it is the best wedding film they have ever seen. On the day, Ben was the first person to arrive and was so pleasant and kind (and calming of nerves!) and incredibly professional too. We did not notice him at all throughout the day – only at the beginning when he was chatting to the bride and bridesmaids in the morning and at the end of the day when he came to say goodbye. He was not only professional throughout but such a nice guy that he feels like a new friend at the end of the day."

"I cannot begin to say how overwhelmed and delighted we are with our wedding film, it is everything we could have hoped for and more. My husband was very unsure about having a videographer at the wedding as he didn’t want anyone to disrupt or get in the way of the day. The next day he said he didn’t even notice Ben was there! Ben was very discrete and just got on with his job professionally. Ben was also very patient and accommodating with my numerous requests and questions during the edit process, and nothing was too much trouble.
We have had so many compliments on the end result, with everyone saying it is like something out of a Richard Curtis movie. Ben is a unique talent, and we have the best keepsake of our day. Thank you so much

"We were debating whether or not to have a wedding film but we can honestly say its the best money we have ever spent! Ben was wonderful on the day, so warm and friendly and we hardly noticed we were being filmed at all throughout the day, so felt very at ease. Many of our guests commented on how lovely Ben and Richard, his second shooter were. When we got our highlights film a few days after the wedding we truly were bowled over. The music Ben had put on the film was perfect and it brings a tear to my eye every time I watch it. Our friends and family have said it looks like a movie trailer! Thank you so much Ben, we could never have asked for a more beautiful way to remember our wedding day, you deserve every success in the world"
