Each couple has their own style, so each film takes it on
We really love to get a sense of who the couple are during our pre-wedding chat. Everyone’s wedding has such a different feel, and we want to capture their essence and be true to the style of their day. That's why, despite all our films being shot by the same 'Wagtail', each of them has a different look and feel.
>> Tell us about your preferred style and maybe we can bond over a mutual dislike for cheesy shots and clichés!
Creative, natural, unpretentious wedding films
On the day
We are regularly told two things by our couples at the end of their wedding day: “we didn't even notice you filming” and “you felt like part of the family”. Our approach is to be discreet, but still get those cinematic shots. When the couple and guests are relaxed, the result is a natural and authentic film. We avoid poses and clichés. You won't see sweeping shots of shoes on windowsills in our films. See what our couples have to say about working with us.
Ayla Akdemir, the chief Wagtail here, has invaluable experience from her film and TV industry background, to help craft your film into something less 'wedding cliché' and more genuine. Having worked within the camera department on projects such as 'Skyfall' and ITV's 'Whitechapel', in 2016, Ayla was contacted by the BBC after director, Francis Whately, came across her video of the Brixton streets, the day Bowie died. Subsequently, Ayla's footage aired on BBC2, as the opening and ending to the Documentary 'David Bowie: The last Five Years'.
Chris & Gemma >> Barbican Centre
In this love story there are three characters. Bride, Groom and the Barbican. Chris and Gemma fell in love with the 80’s architecture and the stunning palm packed boltanical conservatory, where they held their ceremony. They wanted something modern and this trailer was inspired by the style of their day and the sense of space. Their Short Film Collection edit features their vows and plenty of their guests.
Debra + Max >> Sezincote Estate
As featured on the international blog 100 Layer Cake, Debra and Max's Cotswold wedding at the stunning 4,500 acre Sezincote Estate was brought to life by visionary planner Liz Linkleter. A flower adorned staircase by Palais Flowers, autumnal romance and plenty of joyous Israeli dancing were just some of the highlights.
Rachel & Carl >> Institute of Contemporary Art
The grooms words are everything in this teaser trailer... "I admire your capability to make something beautiful out of almost nothing." Rachel and Carl are the kind of couple that walk into your lives and you'd be silly not to walk with them, if you can keep up that is. Ambitious, kind, driven and beautiful people. This is the reason we make wedding films. Their Full Feature Collection is a must watch!
Dani + James >> Crouch End
As seen on Rock N Roll Bride, a 'This Is England' inspired shoot. Smoke bombs, a pinball machine, real mods and real couples
Jenny + Pete >> Noss Mayo, Devon
Autumn in this windy creek, scattered with wooden row boats, is best watched with a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate- two things that were part of their day. It wasn’t all cosy relaxation though, as the guests congaed through the streets to the reception. Jenny and Pete were married in a church with no roof, by Pete’s mother, which made it all the more special.
Tracy + Matthew >> Home
An intimate, rainy back-garden wedding, in the groom's childhood family home. A celebration of a life already bound together and the memories yet to be made with their beautiful children. See the cinematic feature edit, with its epic dance scene to a 9 piece brass band playing Prodigy.
