As your experienced Scottish Wedding Videographer, we specialise in high-end professional cinematic wedding films, capturing all the fun, love and emotion of your fairytale wedding.
Jonathon: “I filmed my first wedding back in 2006. Back then I was one of the few Scottish wedding videographers to embrace high definition technology. A lot has changed since then. Technology has improved considerably. Cameras and equipment have become significantly more advanced in the past five years. I now offer 4K Ultra HD video as an optional upgrade and drone footage is included with our Cinematic Collection. Today’s wedding video is considerably more creative and professional, filmed and edited in a cinematic style which is more pleasing to view, with the emphasis firmly about telling the compelling story of your wedding day. Technology is wonderful, but the bottom line is that the cameras and other high-tech equipment are just tools. It’s all about your day and allowing us to tell your unique story.
I’m one of a select few Scottish wedding cinematographers to have previously qualified as a Master Member of the Institute of Videography. As one of the leading qualified wedding cinematographers in Scotland, I promise you excellent attention to detail and a wedding film that you’ll want to watch again and again.
Best of all, we manage to do this without interfering with your wedding day. Claire and I work discreetly and unobtrusively. One thing we don’t like to see at weddings is the ‘video man’ hogging the space in the venue, getting in the way and becoming the focus of everyone’s attention. It still happens (trust us, we’ve shot recent wedding photos to prove it!), but rest assured this won’t happen when you book us to film your wedding day”.
Scottish Wedding Videographer – Examples Of Our Cinematic Wedding Films
Sit and relax and spend a few minutes viewing a selection of some of our favourite wedding videos below. These wedding video samples are ‘highlights edits’ – shortened versions of the very best bits of your wedding video edited to music of your choice (we always allow you to choose the music for your wedding film, the edit is more personal this way).
We hope you enjoy viewing our work. If you enjoy our style of filming and editing, then please do contact us to arrange your free consultation. We would love to hear from you, find out about your wedding plans and have an informal chat about discreetly filming your wedding day. Hire us to shoot your wedding day. It could be one of the best wedding decisions you make!

We film in a ‘reportage/documentary’ style, meaning we shoot quietly and discreetly in the background. We’re never ‘in your face’!
We have a keen eye for spotting the details and moments which make the difference between a good wedding film and a great wedding film!
We won’t direct you or tell you what to do. All of our weddings are filmed in a very natural style, ensuring we capture all the key moments of your wedding day as they happen.
There’s nothing worse than cheesy, contrived wedding films!
We have an extensive range of equipment, including tripods and monopods, slider, drone and cinematic gimbal stabiliser.
Since 2006, the experience of using these tools means we create your cinematic wedding film, shooting from various angles and positions throughout the day, not sticking to one kind of shot.
When the Scottish weather allows, we also love filming ‘time-lapse’ shots, particularly dramatic shots of clouds passing over your wedding venue! The icing on the cake is the use of our Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), or drone as most people call it!
Variation is key to a great wedding video! By moving discreetly around and filming from different angles, we’re able to capture lots of varied and interesting shots in preparation for stage two of the creative process – editing.
After filming your wedding day, it’s time to edit everything together into a tight and cohesive film.
We add backing music when editing your wedding video, preferably your choice of music. Your selection will affect the pace of the video and will typically reflect the tempo of your music.
Most of Wedding Video Collections include at least 2-camera coverage of the marriage ceremony, the speeches and the dancing.
Creative editing involves cutting between each camera to keep the edit exciting, varied and interesting.
The final edit is a beautifully crafted, detailed documentary of the best day of your life.
We create a private web page enabling you to preview your wedding video. You can also share this page with your family and friends and view your film using your computer, tablet or phone.
How far will you travel?
We will consider bookings anywhere in the UK. We don’t travel outside the UK due to the hassle and cost of taking our equipment on airlines. We’ve created Scottish wedding videos in Aberdeen, Inverness, Scottish Borders, East Lothian, West Lothian, Midlothian, Ayrshire, Glasgow……you get the idea. We’ll travel anywhere to film a beautiful wedding!
Can we meet to discuss our requirements?
We would love to meet and have a chat with you about your wedding day, your expectations and how we would fit seamlessly into your plans.
We appreciate you may be a bit nervous or unsure about committing to booking a wedding cinematographer for your wedding day, so why not arrange a free, no-obligation consultation and have an informal chat about your wedding day.
We’d be delighted to meet with you and discuss how we can work with you to achieve the results that you want.
If you prefer, we’re happy to discuss your wedding plans via email, telephone or Skype – this may be more convenient for you if you live some distance from Edinburgh.
Describe your style of videography?
Being top Scottish wedding videographer means we film and edit your wedding in a documentary cinematic style. Our contemporary wedding films are modern and fresh.
Our Scottish wedding video editing avoids techniques or styles which are currently ‘in fashion’. No oddball tilts or wacky editing which will look awful and dated in the coming years! We film using top of the range 4K cameras which shoot beautiful video just bursting with colour, detail and vibrancy. Why ruin that by editing it to look like it was filmed using an old camera? Why convert brilliant hi-definition or 4K colour to black and white? Why use editing techniques which go in and out of fashion, instead of tried and tested techniques which have stood the test of time? We want your wedding video to look fresh, clean and full of colour and detail.
We use a variety of film tools to enable us to record stunning cinematic shots of all the details of your wedding day. Everything is shot quietly and discreetly in the background as events unfold (reportage style) and never ‘in your face’.
We don’t use distracting video lights as our equipment is designed to handle low light levels comfortably. If you’re not overly conscious you’re being filmed you will feel much more relaxed and enjoy yourselves! You really will appreciate this when you watch your wedding video.
Do you add music when editing the wedding video?
Absolutely! All our edits include appropriate music licensing – this means you can choose practically any song in the edit of your wedding film, not cheap unlicensed ‘musak’ versions of your favourite tracks.
You can choose the full version of your favourite songs by your favourite singers and bands – we usually recommend a maximum of 5 tracks for us to consider while editing your DVD.
We never add music over the top of the wedding ceremony, the speeches or the dancing, it’s important to clearly hear the ambient/natural sound for these parts of the day.
How long will it be before I receive my completed order?
Delivery times vary depending on the Collection ordered and booked commitments. We will advise you of the estimated order completion date shortly after your wedding.
Please note that during the ‘busy season’, usually during the months of March to December, we can be photographing and recording 4 or more weddings per week, which typically results in delivery times of 8 – 16 weeks.
We don’t have a set time to edit wedding photos and video – your wedding is unique, and we want your finished order to reflect that. It takes as long as it takes to get everything ‘just right’. Satisfied clients tell us, ‘it was well worth the wait’!
