Wedding preparations at the magnificent St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London
The full wedding preparations chapter of an amazing Anglo Indian wedding film. Filmed at the jaw dropping St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London with the civil wedding ceremony and wedding reception held at BMA House. One of our wedding videographer filmed with; Nikon D600 camera, Nikon and Pentacon lenses, NanoFlash recording unit, Tascam DR 60D audio recorder and a Sennheiser MKH 416 microphone.
We have been fortunate enough to have filmed at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London before. Check out our Anglo Japanese civil wedding London
We filmed this touching Church wedding video in north west London during May and we think that it is one of our most natural wedding films. Filming the unfolding day from the brides preparations right through to the wedding reception. Our wedding videographer was made to feel right at home with the wedding party and we think it shows. With natural intimate shots throughout the day we think that the videography subtly builds and builds as the wedding day continues into the night.

Our staff and not just the couple’s videographer and editor received excellent reviews. So we think that it is worth watching the wedding video London in it’s original HD.

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 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.
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
Welcome to our new blog. Over the course of the year we will document how our clients films are produced, from the initial contact through to delivery of the final film. We hope this will give you an insight and hopefully some ideas when you consider filming your wedding.
We have just completed a NTSC transfer for an American client from Iowa City USA. Unable to attend his niece’s wedding here in London. Dennis decided to purchase one of our packages as a wedding gift. Because here in Europe we use a different system for television, called PAL. It meant that Dennis needed a company that operated pro edit systems to transfer the footage to his native NTSC format. Happily we were glad to oblige and in fact we can transfer our films to any format worldwide.
Towards the end of last season we introduced our new cameras. So now has come the time to take down our old and fondly remembered samples and highlight what those new cameras can do.
After much debate we have managed to select Kathrina and Alistair’s absoulutely lovely village wedding in Dorset, for our example of the “Documentary” package.
We selected Kathrina and Alistair’s Church wedding film in the end as we felt it highlighted how at ease people felt around the camera. Something that we really feel is important is that the film should be about the people starring in it. We have a sort of motto at Portobello Films – invisible but approachable – and we think that Kathrina and Alistair’s film shows both in equal measure. We hope you enjoy it.
However we cannot bring ourselves to take all those films away so we have kept one of our favorites from 2007. We will be adding some more examples to show our other packages, just once we can decide which ones.
