Thames Wedding Westminster from PORTOBELLO FILMS on Vimeo

We love this wedding video, we have filmed several Thames wedding videos this year. but his Thames wedding Westminster London wedding video is one of our favorites. Filmed in September with the late summer, early autumn orange sunlight reflecting off the Thames. The wedding boat departing from Westminster pier then the wedding boat travelled east to Canary Wharf, Docklands, the O2 Arena, then back past St Paul’s and onto Westminster. All against the backdrop of the beautiful setting sun.

Our wedding videographer London loved filming this wedding video. With the chance to play with the reflections through the windows of the boat as well as the city lights reflecting off the Thames. We think the bride looks amazing against the darkening sky. The wedding videographer was also able to use the neutral density filters that are supplied with the HD camera. Helping to control the exposure difference between the inside and the out side of the wedding boat and adding an extra bit of quality to the wedding filming.

We think that choosing to have you wedding, wedding reception or even your wedding ceremony on the Thames is a great idea. The moving London cityscape and the intimacy of the wedding boat makes a special wedding venue.

Civil Partnership Video from on Vimeo.

One of the highlights of our year in 2011. This fantastic civil partnership video drew friends and family from across the globe from America to Malaysia. To where else but Shakespear’s Globe Theatre in the very heart of London. Spending the whole day over the three floors of the civil partnership and civil wedding venue called The Swan at the Globe. With our wedding videographer living just 20mins away, it could not have been an easier day of filming. In fact when a couple and a venue just click. Just like with this civil partnership filming what happens does not really feel like work. The staff also where excellent.

Our one wedding videographer filming the “Documentary” package and suppling a double wedding Dvd box set. Started th day filming on the raised ground floor main bar. With it’s slightly elevated position overlooking the Thames. Then up to the third floor with its splendid venues over the Thames to St Paul’s Cathedral and the City of London. Where the really rather touching ceremony was held. After some tears and laughter it was off for cocktails on the second floor in preparation for a wonderful meal and brilliant after dinner entertainment supplied by the couple’s talented friends. A really brilliant day filled with the sunshine reflected from the river.

Church Wedding Video London, filmed at St James Norlands Churchand Debenham House in Holland Park which was some wedding venue in London

Wedding video London from on Vimeo.

Catching up with some blogging so this wedding highlights video is from way back in October Filmed in HD and delivered over 2 wedding dvds. The wedding video was shot at St James in Holland Park. Then we went onto the quite spectacular Debenham House just a short walk away. Our wedding videographer who went to meet the couple prior to the wedding at Debenham House just could not wait to get back in there. Especially so as Debenham House often doubles as a film location. In fact the increadible golden artium and balcony that is shown in the wedding video doubled as a north African location in an episode of Spooks.

Filmed by one of our wedding videographer London it really was a day to remember taking in the hidden treasure that is St James Norlands Church follow by the wonderful Debenham House Debenham House

Filmed by one of our wedding videographer London at the really impressive wedding venue London Lord’s Cricket Ground in St John’s Wood London NW8 8QN

The day was amazing and this wedding video shows a whole chapter straight from the actual wedding DVD. Shot as part of the “Documentary” package. The wedding videographer used one of our Sony Z7 cameras with the really brilliant Manfrotto 501 fluid head tripod for the picture. Then to record the audio our wedding videographer used a Sennheiser MKH 416 (which is the standard for film and TV) and then a rather clever gizmo called a Sennheiser SKP which plugs into the back of a remote gun mic and then sends the single back to the camera with no wires.

We hope that this glimps into the snow covered wedding venue gives some indication of what a magical day is was for eveybody involved

Wedding video London from Portobello Films on Vimeo.

Filmed by our 2 wedding videographers. Starting with a wonderful church wedding service at St James’s Church just down the road from Paddington in London’s Sussex Gardens. An easy cab ride from our base for our in-house London videographers to cover the preperations of the happy bride and groom. Then one videographer followed the groom for the anxious wait at St James’s. Followed by our second videographer to capture the arrival of the bride and her entrance down the aisle from two angles.

Then onto the brilliant wedding reception venue at the Lansdowne Club in the heart of London West End just a short walk from Berkeley Sq. A great place to film and the excellent wedding photographer Chris Geary got some great pictures. In fact his shots were so great they featured on weddingideas.com. The wedding venue was a pleasure to film in and had some great vantage points. Perfect for those important, unobtrusive and discreet shots.

We would also like to say a big thank-you to Lucy Mannering the wedding organizer who was so helpful on the day. LucyMannering@LansdowneClub.com

St Clement Danes is a really beautiful gem of a church right in the middle of London on the Strand. Yet for all the hustle and bustle of the city. St Clement Danes is literally an island of tranquility in the middle of The Aldwych. As an RAF remembrance church it has a special history and unique appeal. An excellent London wedding venue the interior is full of architectural details reflecting the church’s links with the air force and is gifted with the most exquisite flooring. In fact almost as a companion piece the RAF have posted St Clement Danes 50th video

Our wedding videographer being based just down the road in west London was able to just jump in a cab and arrive in plenty of time. In fact he used his time well and was able to capture the arrival of all the guests as well as filming the exterior of the church and capturing all those little details. Although as always it is the happy couple that make wedding videography so easy to film.

Wedding video London Warldorf Hotel from Portobello Films on Vimeo.

Filmed back in August 2009 by two wedding videographer. They filmed for 10 hours coverage capturing the couple preparations to brilliant effect. Then onto the arrivals at St James Church Muswell Hill with the groom. Then following the emotional ceremony it was time for the spectacular location of the world famous Waldorf Hilton Hotel right on the Aldwych in the centre of London and the centre of Theatreland. With guests family and friends from all over the world all gathered together maybe for the first and only time. Everyone made sure they had a good time. Be sure not to miss the end credits with the groom interviewing a guest on the merits of Nigerian cuisine.
On a technical note, this wedding video was shot in 2009 before we ofered “Colour grading” as standard. We have since “graded” the footage so if you go straight to our Vimeo channel you will see the original wedding video highlighs with out the “grade”

Wedding video Surrey ,filming at the Wedding Venue Guildford Albury Park Mansion. Civil wedding video.

Wedding video Surrey from Portobello Films on Vimeo.

Filmed back in 2009 on one delightful late summers day in early September this film is the wedding video highlights part of the wedding DVD. Two of our in house wedding videographers arrived at the impressive wedding venue The rather magnificent Albury Park Mansion just outside Guildford in Surrey GU5 9DD. To film a civil wedding video, including the brides preperations, the garden reception, wedding breakfast all the way to and beyond the first dance.
Always looking to frame the scene within a locational context, our wedding videographers were able to take full advange of their number. Capturing events not only highlightling the beautiful surroundings of the Surrey countryside. But also get the impromtue personal shots that give the wedding film its identity. Untilising the full extent of the “Television” package by filming fom both sides of the room during the lovely civil service. Thereby filming both the bride and groom at the same time. Giving our editor the easy task of letting the film edit itself by naturally cutting between action and reaction, rather than looking for a shot to cover the resizing or reframing of a shot. Giving the wedding video a natural feeling and a light touch. So we would just like to say a big thank you to everyone that made the happy couples day such a joy to film

Wedding video London Greenwich, Wedding Venue Royal Naval College London. Church wedding video.

Wedding video London from Portobello Films on Vimeo.

Filmed by just one wedding videographer this wedding video is just brilliant. In fact it is the first wedding video that we have extended the wedding highlights to over seven minutes. As there was just so much to pack in on an action packed wedding day.

Starting with an emotional church wedding service at St Alfege Greenwich then on to the Old Royal Naval College Greenwich for an amazing wedding reception.

In fact you may wish to compare the very first film filmed there and wedding video recored for posterity by British Panthe in 1935 Naval Wedding at Greenwich Quite a difference in technology and film cameras in the intervening seventy six odd years. From scatchy old film stock to the latest Sony HD cameras. Yet the wedding venue by the Thames in Greenwich still retains its gravitas, and beautifully positioned to take full advantage of the natural light that pours through its high sighted windows. It almost seems designed as a perfect wedding video location. Certainly it has become an instant hit with eveybody here in post production and colour grading and even the sound department for the wedding venues excellent acoustics. All in all we think it was a brilliant wedding film and we thougherly enjoyed working on it
