Full Description
My approach to documenting an event is to be as discreet as possible. Generally, no one will even know they are being filmed. I truly believe that through my relaxed approach, I’m not only able to deliver, but will ultimately be able to provide the most natural, intimate and emotive results. I use small, silent cameras and don't scream in your face. You want your wedding to be captured, but not feel like it’s being interrupted. So I’ll dress the part and I’ll blend in. My focus is to create a lasting legacy of memories using natural light and real cinematic techniques. I love getting to know my couples, hearing their stories and capturing their day. Each time, the story is completely unique, and I can’t wait to tell yours.

Michael is a genuinely lovely guy, who really cares and his attention to detail is second to none.
Choosing a videographer/photographer is honestly one of the most important decisions you can make when planning your wedding. These people are around all day so you have to like them and they have to have a positive influence on your day. Once the day is over it’s a complete blur - all you are left with is the video/photos of your day. Choose wisely - choose Michael Westcott Films! Michael is a genuinely lovely guy, who really cares and his attention to detail is second to none. He was also great with our two girls! Our Wedding Highlights video is perfection. It picks up every special moment in our day in such an amazing way. It brings the day back to life. Having this video to share with family and friends today (especially with a small wedding due to covid) and for future generations to look back on - it is more than we could have hoped for. Michael also gave us full videos of the Ceremony and the Speeches that were also creatively put together. We can’t wait to welcome Michael back for a proper highland Ceilidh! Thanks Michael, Mr and Mrs Peterkin 🎥❤️

You can tell within minutes of meeting Michael that he absolutely loves what he does
You can tell within minutes of meeting Michael that he absolutely loves what he does and his attention to detail is very impressive. The way he roams around and captures everyone talking and mingling makes the footage seem very natural. Him and the photographer seemed to bounce off each other very well. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I feel very lucky to do what I love as my main job and travel all over the UK and meet amazing people.

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

Do your best not to overthink your budget. A wedding video will last forever and capture your special day in a way that nothing else can. Do your supplier research and find out what you’ll get for your money. with videographers, a short trailer film is great but remember to ask questions before you book to find out exactly what you’ll get on your wedding day. Most have different packages available to suit your needs and that you can tailor them if needed.

Describe how you got into videography.

I went to Edinburgh Napier University to study Digital Media which was a course that introduced me to film and the art of editing and being creative within professional tools to think outside the box. I am self-taught on photography / cinematography and experimented with these crafts on jobs whilst at university which lead me on to fall in love with filmmaking. I then moved all over Scotland gaining more experiences working for outdoor adventure companies, real estate agents, collaborating with inspiring artists creating music videos, brand awareness films and short fiction filmmaking. I then eventually launched my own business back in 2017 primarily focusing on weddings but also keeping the corporate side of work too. This allowed me to meet people and gain more experience. In addition, I also attended multiple workshops in England and masterclasses which allowed me to meet industry professionals and connect with other filmmakers all over the world. After a few years, working full time freelance, I got offered a part time role to work in a growing video production company based in Southampton. This happened thanks to the contacts I had made and kept in touch with from a filmmaking workshop in Brighton in 2015. He runs a successful commercial and wedding business in Southampton. I am currently working part time at Bullet Media and also part time for my own business.
