UK & Destination Wedding Videographers are constantly evolving….
Marc & Dominique: Barbados by MoviArt Films
You can never stand still and be complacent as a modern uk or destination wedding videographer. There are constant developments in camera technology, in wedding filming techniques and subtle changes in clients expectations and needs that all have to be taken on board in order to be the best wedding videographer possible.
My wedding filming style is adaptable to each wedding, from a full on party vibe such as Marc & Dominique in my Barbados wedding film to classic European wedding videography for more traditional or rustic weddings.
Award winning wedding videographers
Every year I attend wedding filming workshops worldwide to learn from award winning wedding videographers. The breadth of knowledge and styles is immense and by choosing the best UK and destination wedding videographers as educators has helped to push MoviArt Films higher and higher in both quality, approach and industry standing. In recent years these wedding videographer have included:
Philip White whose stripped back and low key approach has influenced an incredible amount of current wedding videos is rightly regarded as one of the best UK wedding videographers,
Riccardo Fasoli, (Kreative Weddings): is a multi award winning Germany based leader in destination and elopement wedding videos, producer of the famous ‘Elopement in Scotland’
Jeff Wood: Jeff’s dedication to applying true filmmaking values to the wedding video has consistently raised the bar for all of us and his standing as one of the best destination wedding videographers in the world is thoroughly deserved.
Ian Badenhorst. (Vison on Fire) One of South Africa’s leading wedding videographers who’s approach and philosophy gets him to the heart of the wedding day.
Tim Twinem: (Velare) As one of the best destination wedding videographers Tim’s unique vision has made him one of the most respected wedding filmmakers in both his native USA and throughout the world.
Keeping on top of how the best names in the wedding film industry are approaching their art makes me constantly re-evaluate my own approach to story, composition, equipment and presence on the wedding day whether as a UK or Destination wedding videographer.
Story and pacing are everything – letting the wedding film breathe…
Slovenia’s Lake Bled is such an stunning location for a destination wedding I deliberately chose to slow the edit down to savour every bit of the landscape and give space to let the viewer really take in the words of the officiant. The best wedding videographers adapt their style to each wedding rather than producing formulaic films with little individuality.

Trends come and go but the best wedding videographers will always adhere the principles of classic filmmaking theory when creating a wedding film. The art of filming and editing hasn’t changed drastically since Orson Welles made Citizen Kane in 1941. Technology moves forward and facilitates new techniques and approaches but the basics of good composition, storytelling and use of audio remain the cornerstone of every film, from the small arthouse project to award winning Oscar nominated Hollywood epics.
These techniques and theories are as relevant for the wedding videographer as for the award winning Hollywood director. The days of the poorly filmed 80’s wedding videos are thankfully well behind us and the wealth of styles and talent available in the the wedding industry has never been greater.
