Full Description
Salmon Crest Wedding Films is a leading luxury wedding videography studio home to highly creative Multi-Award Winning Industry professionals. We film throughout the UK, Europe, and Worldwide to produce stunning high-end bespoke films unique to you and your special day. We have seen enough companies that provide 'template wedding videos' which capture the events but do not capture the emotion of the day or the story of the couple, losing all those precious moments forever. We know you deserve better. ​To capture passion it requires passion, time and understanding. Personally, we pride ourselves on being able to capture these beautiful days properly in full for you to keep forever. Coming from a narrative background, the most important part of the process is telling your story. Quietly we capture everything from the smallest moments like a teardrop in the eye of one of the guests to the more visible things that some people may miss from certain angles, for example, the first reaction of the groom seeing the bride for the first time or both parties beginning their journey in the morning.

Each wedding is unique, the same as each couple is unique, which is why we tailor make our wedding films based on the couple. We would love to have a chance to talk to you about your story and what we can offer in regards to allowing you to relive this truly special day.

We are so happy our Wedding video is PERFECT!
We are so happy our Wedding video is PERFECT! We have had so many friends and family personally and on facebook comment on how beautiful it is and how talented our videographer must be! Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly…. We found Salmon Crest Wedding Films online after reading glowing reviews, and our experience was equally positive. They filled us in on all the details. Throughout the whole process, they were very responsive to emails, answering any questions we had quickly. Kathleen kept in close contact with us in the weeks leading up to the wedding, including checking our venues. This was important to us and made us feel at ease about the videography, amidst all the stress and chaos which comes the weeks before your wedding. On the day they came to the house in which some of the wedding party were getting ready, and got some great footage early on. At the venue, they coordinated very well with our photographer, and got excellent footage, without it ever feeling like they were getting in the way. We were advised last minute by the venue that regular confetti could not be thrown at the venue, but Kathleen recommended that our guests used handheld bubble makers (which she provided) to create some AMAZING shots…and more environmentally friendly than the old-fashioned confetti too. We loved the digital comment book giving us special comments from each of our guests about the day and personal good wishes for our future…some comments brought tears to our eyes and others crying with laughter!! The final edits were ready very quickly. We were thrilled with the finished video, it brought tears to our eyes and we've watched it over and over again! Kathleen has such an eye for detail, with certain clips being matched to the words of chosen songs we and loved that we could see all the things that we missed on our wedding day! Also included was a sizzle reel which was just beautiful and a hilarious blooper reel. The video is something that we will cherish forever. It was an absolute pleasure to have your team there for our special day. We would definitely recommend Kathleen and Salmon Crest Wedding Films to anyone for their wedding day. We are so happy our Wedding video is PERFECT!

It is absolutely perfect! Highly recommend them!
My partner and I have recently returned from a romantic Norwegian fjords cruise, where we got engaged. We were looking for a company that could change our holiday footage into a mini film keepsake. After looking at a few companies, we were recommended to try Salmon Crest Wedding Films by our friends who had a beautiful wedding video made by them. As a result, we asked them to make our holiday/engagement film and it is absolutely perfect! We have already booked them again for our wedding video next year and would highly recommend them to our friends and family. A perfect video at a good price. Thank you, Salmon Crest. P Baker.

Videos are perfect! We all had a cry at them too!
"Thank you so so much we love every video and they brought back so many memories and captured lots of moments we had forgotten or hadn't seen!   Even from just seeing the sizzle reel we already fell in love with it and we could already tell that you had both managed to capture our day perfectly, Thank you so much! ​ We've shown both our parents and all agree that the videos are perfect (we all had a cry at them too!).   Thank you so much again they really are amazing!" ​

Film Screening at the UK House of Lords
It's been wonderful being a small part of it all from seeing the amount of useful data collected from even the tiniest action to screening our film at the UK House of Lords 'Agenda for Change' Launch which we hope delivers even more impact for decision-makers and for society as a whole.

I was blown away. They took time to understand us
'Scwf were totally amazing throughout the whole process - from our first emails to the final outcome, I was blown away. They took time to understand us and our day which means that the final video conveys the emotion of our day and beyond and above anything I could have imagined. On the day, the team were great, so accommodating and friendly; it was well planned and understood by all of the staff - a really professional approach - and I think that you can see this in finished product! Mainly I just want to say thank you to them all for their hard work, we had such a short turnaround which they nailed and I know that everyone involved wanted to make this the perfect video - I am so overwhelmingly happy with the result'

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding we have done is unique and it would be impossible to choose the most memorable as I remember all the weddings I do with great happiness and fondness. An entertaining moment in one of my weddings however was when there was an owl as the ring bearer in an old church ( you can probably see where this is going already). When it was time for the rings the owl lept from the falconer's hand and decided to settle up in the beams and rafters. The bride kept trying to coax him down with food, which after several minutes finally worked.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Cinematic,Natural, Story-Driven, Personal.

What about your business are you most proud of?

We have seen enough companies that provide 'template wedding videos' which capture the events but do not capture the emotion of the day or the story of the couple, losing all those precious moments forever. We know you deserve better. Kuku Team Mascot salmon_crest01_edited_edited.jpg To capture passion it requires passion, time and understanding. We pride ourselves on being able to capture these beautiful stories properly in full for you to keep forever.

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

When looking at a videopgrapher remember these 2 tips 1: Do not limit yourself- when talking to a videographer make sure you sit down and tell them about your story and what your wedding is going to be like and what you would like the film to look like.The videographer will then tell you how they can acheieve that, how it can impact thne wedding and how much it would cost. From there you will be able to get the perfect film for yourselves. If a videographer doesn't allow this then, be wary. 2- Videographers are usually chosen last- but rember if a picture paints a thousand words, Imagine hwat a video could do...

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

Again similar to memorable weddings there is so much variety in the weddings, no weddings should be a copy and paste, each is unique with different personal touches. One which emotionally grabbed me, however, was a locket wrapped around the bride's bouquet. It was her mum's who passed away when she was 5. The locket was given to her by her dad so her mum could be with her on her wedding day.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After confirming with us the dates, locations and availability, we will organise a date for a free consultation. This consultation is usually done via email, skype or phone call (Couples Preference) where we then discuss their story and without any limitations what they would like to have. We then agree with the perfect way to film and capture their big day according to what they need. We then film their wedding in a way agreed by the couple and once the footage has been returned to the editing team it is then cut and edited into several reels again if needed by the couple. We then upload it online for the couple to preview, once the couple is happy with the preview we export it to the couples prefered media. We then offer any additional services that they might require after the inital consulation.

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

I caught a rare bird call a nightjar on top of its nest with two baby nightjar chicks snuggled underneath it when I was shooting a promotional film for the BTO (a bird charity).

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

Blade Runner- It is my favourite film and it's cinematography is amazing anmd beautiful.

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

As part of our services, we offer an in-house soundtrack if the couple wants a truly unique and personal score to their wedding. Shane Barber (Our Composer)is a very versatile (modest) and highly talented individual. I have been working with Shane for many years and he never fails to impress. Shane has an amazing knack for composing the music I have in my head before I even need to open my mouth. Whether it is a classical mix or something a bit more techno, whatever soundtrack that suits your wedding we will make sure its the correct one.

Describe how you got into videography.

I specialise in wedding videography now as I have roots in professional screenwriting and narrative production from my experiance at Ealing studios. Then one day i decided that i wanted to capture people's natural stories not once made up or loosely based off but to capture peopels real fairy tale endings.
