UK Wedding Videography

Okay... so it turns out I haven't been keeping up on my blog posts. In-fact, I have rarely done any blog posts at all, I guess it's all just been a bit too manic! 

So I thought I'd write a general update about my weddings videos in 2017 and what the plan is for Ben Radley Wedding Films going forward in 2018 and beyond. Each year since I started on this crazy journey, it has grown and grown very quickly. I could say 'I didn't expect it', but I love what I do and I have put in the work to make that happen.

Last year (2017) sent me all across the UK I filmed weddings in Cambridge, Gloucester, Somerset, Herefordshire and beyond. As well as in my more local spots such as the New Forest, Bournemouth, Southampton, Winchester and the super local (hometown) Salisbury. Travelling to so many different locations to create wedding videos sparks so much creativity within me as each location, venue and wedding couple are completely different. 

If you need any inspiration for your wedding here are some of the venues I shot at last year: 

This is just a selection, there were many more which I might create a whole blog post about in the future, but these were just the ones I remember at the time of writing! 

I always look back on my films and see constant improvement with each one, so I genuinely always believe the last one I did is the best so far. Each time I tweak and improve, that's how this creative game works, it's never-ending. My wedding videos went through so many changes and improvements last year, the variety of weddings helped with that. What you see of my work now is the most satisfied I have been with the quality of work I produce for my wedding couples. 

In 2018 - the wedding season has already begun - I hope to further grow and expand my reach and variety of weddings that I shoot. I love unique weddings, I love driving to new locations I have never been to before, exploring them on a wedding day and shooting something special. 

I hope Ben Radley Wedding Films continues to work with amazing couples and make creative, unique wedding films. I love what I do, and I genuinely feel a great connection with every couple.  Long may that continue.

Below is my 2018 Wedding Film Showreel for those of you that haven't already seen it on other areas of my website: 

Harriet & Ollie | New Forest Showground

6th August 2016

Harriet & Ollies wedding at the New Forest Showground was such a special day and so perfectly organised. Living right next to the New Forest affords me the absolute luxury of having many spectacular wedding venues in the area. New Forest Showground is a particularly unique one and Harriet & Ollies day with a giant marquee was just beautiful. I love filming weddings in the New Forest, especially when it was a boiling hot day and everyone was outside enjoying the sunshine whilst the various bands played throughout the day. 

In the morning Harriet prepared for the day at Burley Rails Cottage, I filmed her make up prep and some lovely shots of the wedding dress with the sun coming through the window. I then headed over to film Ollie before setting up at the church. From then on the day went incredibly smoothly and they just could not have wished for better New Forest weather! 

It truly was an incredible wedding to film and Harriet & Ollie were so pleased with their final film. The wedding ended up featuring in Hampshire & Dorset Wedding Magazine where I received a little wedding videographer credit :) 

Below you can see the trailer for the film as well as Harriet & Ollies wonderful feedback: 


Ben was an absolutely wonderful videographer for our wedding! This was something we were "umm'ing and arr'ing" about having for our big day but we are so so glad we decided to go for it! One of the best things about Ben is that you felt like you never saw him, he was just there in the background capturing everything without being in the way...well even being seen. He really got to know us and found out what we wanted from the video and the final product is just amazing! Thank you so much Ben!
