Very glamorous civil wedding video filmed by one of our wedding videographers at the absolutly stunning Kensington Roof Gardens civil wedding venue. right on Kensington High Street at number 99 This central London location (W8 5SA) has had a long and fashionable history.

Entrance to Kensington Roof Gardens

Commisioned in 1935 as a show piece for the Derry and Toms department store the roof gardens cover some 1 and a half arces on the 6th floor. Over 1 hundred feet up with spectacular views over west London. So as you can imagine our wedding videographer was quite simply as happy as a wedding videographer can be. With the gardens protected by a Grade 2 heritage site status and  the impresive trees (that’s right trees) protected by preservation orders. The spectacular gardens are split into 3 main areas. The Moor Spanish garden, English woodland complete with stream, pond and ducks and the Tudor garden. There is always something wonderful to film a dream location for wedding videography.

Kensington Roof Gardens really became ingrained in London’s fashion identity once Biba took over the premises in the mid 1970’s with rock star and the glitteratti frequenting the Rainbow Resturant on the 5th floor just below the gardens

Today this exclusive civil wedding venue in Kensington is now part of Virgin’s Limited Edition portfolio of locations. With the added addition of the Babylon restaurant on the 7th floor. This quickly became the videographer’s top civil wedding venue in London. (Especially with her being based just around corner).

We think that this wedding video is one of the most glamorous civil weddings filmed by us.

Wedding Video London from PORTOBELLO FILMS on Vimeo

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. The wedding venues where St John the Evangelist Church wedding NW4 3PX and the wedding reception was held at the Palm Hotel Hendon Way

Wedding video London, filmed at the Wedding Venue Lord’s cricket ground Videographer London. Civil wedding video.

Wedding video London from Portobello Films on Vimeo.

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

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.

Our in-house videographers film modern Wedding Video and Wedding Videos. In this case our London videographer filmed the Documentary package with a Sony Z7 camera and a really nice Sennheiser sound kit

Wedding video London from Portobello Films on Vimeo.

With the wedding reception venue at the impressive Stationers Hall and the main ceremony venue in the splendor of St Pauls Cathedral. Everybody and the most amazing day with all the excitement of being right in the very heart of historic London.
Our wedding videographer (in house of course no hiring of outsourced staff for our client’s wedding videos) being London based arrived in good time and as fresh as a daisy. With the reception just a short walk from the wedding at St Pauls the day could not be easier. Leaving our videographer all the time to discreetly pick his shots. We hope you agree that it does look quite splendid. All filmed in HD 1080 25p (non of that 1080i nonsence) and delivered as 8 widescreen wedding DVDs with an additional wedding speeches DVD

Wedding video London, filming at the Wedding Venue Waldorf Hotel Aldwych London. Church wedding video.

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
