Top Wedding Tips

Make sure you have a consultation with each videographer you're interested in book to ensure not only their style but also their personality matches up with yours.

Videography and photography are best kept separate, unless there are dedicated photographers and videographers in the same business. You may find one area suffers at the expense of the other.

Don't worry about the camera! When I film, I do so in a discreet way, remaining as unobtrusive as possible.

Wow! I am lost for words for the wonderful video that James has created for our special day! It truly was the most amazing day! James we can not thank you enough for how calm and relaxed you made us feel throughout the day. Some of the detail you have captured without us knowing is amazing and will make our special day memorable for the rest of our lives. We wish you all the best for the future, you truly are a credit to your work. X

James did the video for my recent wedding. From start to finish nothing was to big or small. James was professional approachable and listened to everything we wanted. The final product truly represents how much effort and work James put into the video. On behalf of me and my wife thank you James. I highly recommend James if you are looking for a fantastic video to remember your special day forever!

Our wedding
James did an amazing job on our wedding day. He made us feel so comfortable and blended into the background so well. Our video was a brilliant reminder of the day and he captured everything perfectly. We would definitely recommended Lapwing films to anyone wanting a videographer and we are so pleased that we have the memories to keep.

The best wedding decision you will make!
James was the upmost pro from start to finish! He respectfully asked all the right questions prior to our wedding to ensure he captured everything that was special to us on the big day.

He went above and beyond to be in the right place at the right time, from dawn till dusk, just to be sure he would frame those perfect moments that we will be fortunate enough to reminisce with our friends and family. It also helps that he’s super tall! :-D

Behind the lens he’s incredibly gifted, demonstrating a real passion for his work. Combine this with his warm personality and thoughtfulness towards your special day, you will be hard pushed to find a better videographer.

Perfect service by a true gent!

Originally from Blackpool, I now live in Bingley, West Yorkshire with my wife and our dogs. I’ve been making short films for the past several years. I’ve also made corporate films for businesses in the local area. I love capturing a couple’s special day on film. I work with couples beforehand to discuss what they want from their film and maintain regular contact with them in the lead up to their wedding. I create films unique to each couple so they can relive their day through the years. I make sure I stay out of the way as much as possible throughout the day, capturing the day as it unfolds naturally. I minimise posed shots to ensure that the couple spend as much of their day as possible enjoying themselves.
