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

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 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
