Cinematic Pre-wedding film / Love story

A cinematic pre-wedding film can be a great addition to your wedding day; something you can play to your guests during your reception and treasure for a lifetime. The Pre-wedding film allows you to tell your own story with professional video, sound and lighting.

When it comes to pre-wedding films, anything goes!

In our initial meeting, we find out more about you as a couple and can discuss any ideas you have for the film. From then on, you can be involved in the creative process as much or as little as you would like. You may decide to leave it all to us to tell your love story or perhaps if you fancy yourselves as actors, screenwriters or directors, you can opt for something more ambitious.

Whether you want to shoot a full multi-location cinematic epic, a spoof documentary film or a simple love story etc, we deliver a beautiful aesthetic and a perfect sentiment. Gents, we can even secretly film your proposal from hundreds of metres away with hidden microphones which can make a great inclusion into your pre-wedding film which could remain a secret from your bride until your wedding, should you choose to show the film at your wedding reception.

Pre-wedding films are delivered on DVD, Blu-ray and a variety of High Definition digital formats for display on you PC, iPhone, iPad etc and for uploading to the web.


Save the date Film

Taking inspiration and ideas for a pre-wedding film, we can create a short (~2 minute) Save the date film; a very modern and popular way to let your guests know when it’s happening.
