So before the world took an unexpected left turn, I got to spend a day with Jodie & Tom, their family and friends, alongside some of my favourite other wedding suppliers and had a sensational day making a short wedding reel for them.
Over the past few years we’ve watched other phenomenal videographers do their thing and occasionally wondered how Hannah and I might fold a little of that magic into our business. Well, we figured it out, and it looks a bit like this.

It was everything that we love about weddings wrapped up in a really neat little bundle. Beautiful souls, smiling faces, a cracking venue with a view for days and food that’d make any mouth water and a complete joy to be a part of.
Looking ahead a bit, Hannah and I have decided that offering wedding films alongside our photography is something we’d really like to do. There are a couple of little things to note though. First off, if you’ve got your heart set on a minute by minute account of your wedding day with full recorded speeches and ceremony then as ever, we’re going to point you in the direction of some of the best videographers in Kent and further away that we could possibly recommend.
These Reels are going to be small but perfectly formed cinematic trailers of your day that you can watch over and over again on your iPhone/iPad etc and show to anyone and everyone that wants to see it.
If what ticks your boxes, is a confetti canon blast of wedding with all the laughter, smiles, little moments and big dancefloor moves condensed down into a shorter 3-5min film, then that’s something that when Hannah and I are shooting together we know that we can do. So from 2021 we’re going to start offering these little reels as an Add-On to our wedding collections at a reasonable price that feels like a good investment.
It’s exciting, it’s fun, it compliments the photos that we make really nicely, and gives you guys this epic collection of both photos and film together that’s going to make remembering your wedding day even more special.
We’ve got a couple more of these stored up for the blog for later this year but for now, here’s Jodie & Tom at The Beacon in Tunbridge Wells having the absolute day of their lives.
