Full Description
Our wedding photography sets out to capture your wedding the way you want. While we have a style which we would descibe as vibrant, colourful and bold – we are also very flexible and listen to what our bride and grooms really want rather than force our style upon them. We are well aware that every couple is different and when some want significant focus on them and their portraits, others want a laid back and reportage approach. It’s quite easy and natural for us to adapt to your requirements so that you always feel comfortable. Our wedding films set out to capture a record of your day in a romantic, timeless and detailed fashion all in exceptional clarity and definition. Using classic film-making techniques and attention to detail we craft wedding films that will stand the test of time and live on for generations to come. ‘Wedding Videography’ or ‘Wedding Cinematography’ has developed into a fine art in itself and far from the service that it used to be not so many years ago.

absolute pleasure to speak and deal with
From our very first meeting with Sam, we both felt we were in assured and competent hands. Sam is an absolute pleasure to speak and deal with; he has been professional, friendly & efficient throughout. The communication has been open, honest and extremely helpful and above all polite. We are truly amazed at how Sam & his colleague managed to be seemingly ‘everywhere’, yet also remained totally discreet and ‘in the background’, throughout the whole wedding. Sam is quiet, confident, patient and non intrusive – who helped a very camera shy bride feel totally at ease. We cannot praise White Villa Videos highly enough. They have captured our wedding day beautifully and imaginatively. You will be booking a company that cares about the clients wishes and listens. NB: Don’t be put off by the low key presence of this company… White Villa Films/ Sam had been mentioned to us by a couple we met coincidentally after a church service held on The Orchardleigh Estate; how grateful we are. We were unsure initially; we had very little info to go on and from complete strangers! However they were just so complimentary; we now know they were not exaggerating re just how good they actually are. We both wish we had booked them to take the photographs as well – but sadly had already committed to another photographer. We cannot praise them highly enough; this is written with our utmost gratitude for providing us with a truly magical video. Thank you both so very much. Kindest regards Wendy & James

You should send a health warning with your films
You should send a health warning with your films: contains footage that will make you cry! We are so incredibly happy with the film. It brings all the emotional back from the day. It’s so beautiful. Huge thank you to Sam, Katy and the team for capturing our wedding day. Just perfect. From the initial contact to picking up the final footage Sam was professional, approachable, and first class. We love showing our friends and family the wedding video and are still holding back the tears now!! Thank you again. Would highly recommend to anyone!!

The attention to detail was phenomenal
Sam recently filmed our wedding and we've just received the film! I cannot find the words to describe how pleased we are with it! The attention to detail was phenomenal, he even filmed a birds eye view of the venue which was a lovely surprise when we watched it, we didn't realise Sam could fly! With having both a photographer and videographer I was worried it would seem a little intrusive, but we barely noticed Sam was even there and were then shocked with the amount he'd managed to capture! Initially we didn't budget for a videographer, but I am sooo pleased we changed our minds! After watching the film I realised Sam had managed to capture many unforgettable, once in a life time moments that we will never experience again, it's lovely to be able to sit back and watch all the highlights in our own time and take it all in as the day went so fast and now seems like a blur. Not only do we get to relive those special moments but there were quite a few parts of the wedding I had managed to miss by being caught up in the day itself, for example my Dad's face when he saw me, my parents reactions to the ceremony and our friends and family dancing, laughing and enjoying the day/evening. Even though I didn't tell Sam who people were, he managed to figure it out himself and even caught my brother's reaction to a remark made about him in my Dad's speech! I was very impressed with this and it shows how invested he was in the day, ensuring he filmed all the things that would mean the most to us and our families. I love the fact that forever more we can watch the moment we became husband and wife. I know weddings are expensive and a videographer can seem like an added expense but my advice to anyone getting married would be to have it filmed, and especially by Sam at White Villa as you will get a professional service with an exceptional end result. Thank you so much for the amazing video you created for us! Love Mr and Mrs Tinling x

We couldn’t have chosen anyone better
Thank you all for everything. We couldn’t have chosen anyone better to be with us on our day. Sam and Katy are without doubt worthy of a 5 star rating. From the pre wedding shoot and feeling like one of the wedding party on the day. Sam has no idea just how good he is and cares so much about making people happy with what he can achieve for them. We re-live our day so much thanks to the beautiful photos and amazingly edited film. We really can’t thank you both enough. If there were 10 stars I would happily award them to you. Andrea and Neal x

the end product was nothing short of outstanding
White Villa Photography and Films filmed our wedding in Sept 2014 at Thornbury Castle and the end product was nothing short of outstanding. We had a very professional and courteous consultation with them in the build up to our big day, so that we could get a feel for their style and put across our ideas, which they were keen to implement into their shoot on the day, whilst also considering post production i.e. music and editing. They were always swift to answer any emails we sent them in the lead up. On the day of the wedding, we barely noticed the two cameramen as they seemed to float around everyone expertly and discreetly. It didn't take very long for them to edit and send us the final video and I can only say that we were absolutely thrilled when we saw it. They captured our day in the most magical and fluent way. It felt very natural but polished and professional and it delivered everything we could have possibly wanted. the angles, the moments, the feel; everything was just right. As an extra special touch, they were able to capture some aerial shots of the venue (via helicopter/drone) which they edited in; it was spectacular!! I would happily recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect wedding video. Scott and Emma Hazell
