A million percent worth every single penny
Our wedding video is simply, one of the most beautiful and most treasured things that we have from our day. My husband had some reservations about having a videographer and wanted to see where we were with our budget before commiting. It's safe to say that it's some of the best money we have ever spent and a million percent worth every single penny. Dan is fun, friendly and easy to be around. He kept the mood light and fun all morning with me being a bit of a panicky flapper and was a joy to have around the whole day. He was never intrusive or in the way and he blended in with our guests seemlessly - we hardly knew he was there for large portions of the day! Our wedding took place in the woods in Bradgate Park on a wet and drizzly day and we had our reception in Tipis - the footage that Dan has captured is simply stunning. He's got MAD editing skills and our highlights film, feature film and all of the other bits and pieces are all absolutely incredible. He's captured all of the fun and silliness of our special day and many of the idiosyncrasis of our friends and family members that are hard to capture in a still picture. The end result is breathtaking and it's easy to see the time and passion that he's put into everything. If you're unsure about whether to go for a video, absolutely go for it, it's simply one of our most treasured memories of our wedding that we can watch over and over again - and we do! Dan is outstanding at what he does and we couldn't be any more grateful!

Best money we spent on the wedding!
If anyone is looking for a videographer I cannot speak highly enough of Daniel Yates Films! We recently got married & Daniel filmed our day for us. He was absolutely fantastic, it was without a shadow of a doubt one of the best decisions we made to book him for our wedding! He was so professional, yet so friendly & made us feel so comfortable. When we got home from our honeymoon we watched the footage and were blown away!! The films were even better than we could ever have hoped for, I’m so thrilled and can’t thank him enough! He is not only a lovely guy but so incredibly talented and so so professional. He captured the day in a way we didn’t think possible. All of our family and friends have been so overwhelmed & impressed. Best money we spent on the wedding! In summary, I would 100% recommend him, we can’t speak highly enough of how professional, talented & friendly he is.

He deserves more than five stars!
Where to start haha?! Daniel was a recommendation from our photographer as we were struggling to find one! After looking online at his beautiful work there was no comparison to anything else we had seen and there was no question we wanted him to film our special day so we booked him straight away! He answered every question we had swiftly and made sure everything we wanted would be captured! Even though we didn’t meet Dan until the day it was like we had known him ages! He was so lovely and down to earth and easy to talk too! He effortlessly blended in to our day and made us and our guests feel at ease instantly! He went above and beyond and was happy to help us with anything we needed on the day! He worked so well with our photographers and we had such a laugh with them on the day! We had so many compliments on how unobtrusive he was and how effortlessly he blended in and how some people didn’t even realise when he was filming! Our highlight video premiered on Facebook and it was so exciting waiting for it all day! It was amazing and a great way to be able to share it instantly with our guests! It was the perfect summary of the day and we couldn’t wait to receive the main film! We received our main film yesterday which was beautifully presented! We have already watched it so many times and it is absolutely incredible! It has captured every aspect of our special day so perfectly even some things we didn’t know were being filmed! It has been beautifully edited together and is the best way to relive your day! We can’t thank Daniel enough for everything and are so grateful! We would recommend him to anyone and his work speaks for itself! We can’t wait to show our video to all our family and friends and know they will love it as much as we do! We are so lucky we have such a perfect way to look back at our day! He deserves more than five stars! Thank you! Xx

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

The most memorable weddings are the ones where the couples dynamic is so strong that it wouldn’t matter if they were stood in front of a garden shed getting married

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Simplistic, minimalist, elegant, timeless, beautiful

What about your business are you most proud of?

I feel as though I leave every wedding with a new set of friends.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don’t over produce the day with a tight schedule. The more time you leave to simply enjoy yourselves the more you’ll simply enjoy yourselves

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Alpacas 🦙

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I meet most couples at my office in Hinckley. Initially I really don’t need much more than a few basic details in order to provide a quote and then once booking is secured. I collect more details about the logistics during the build up to the big day

What is the most exciting thing you have caught on camera?

There’s a shot of me sprinting toward my camera as an energetic 3 year old was about to pull it onto himself

What is the one film you wish you had directed and why?

The Postman starring Kevin Costner, great story... filmed badly!

What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?

I use a licenced instrumental to create a score similar to an actual feature film. That way the film is timeless and not dated by current songs.

Describe how you got into videography.

I’ve had a video camera since I was 13 and have always made home videos with relatives. I studied media in college but it wasn’t until I filmed a wedding for a family friend that I realised just how much emotion could be captured with little to no direction. Very few forms of video allow you to be as creative in the edit suite as a wedding does.
