More lovel and appreciated feeback from Sunniva and Jelmer after receiving their wedding videos:
We absolutely love the videos. It is pure perfection and we couldn’t be more happy with them. Looking through them it feels like we are reliving the day. You are an incredible talented videographer and we are SO happy we chose you to capture this day!
Some lovely and appreciated feedback from Lynsey and Kalil after receiving their wedding videos:
Anyone planning a wedding will be familiar with spending some time shortlisting potential suppliers but as soon as we came across Phil’s work we were eager to secure him for our wedding date immediately. I can’t comment on the technical nature of his work much but, quite simply, Phil’s work was the best we had seen in every way: the sound; light; his ability to both convey and rouse very different emotions in just one film (and despite footage being in a different language, as in our film’s case); his flair for telling a story…
He is genuinely an expert and it was reassuring knowing that the film capturing the most important day of our life so far was always going to turn out spectacularly when produced by him. It seemed to us that every couple’s film was produced with such dedication and pride in one’s work and ours was no exception. Despite spending just a few hours with us, our film manages to capture our idiosyncrasies Phil wouldn’t know about, and those of our loved ones. We know it will get even better with age — and it was actually the timeless quality of his films which was also particularly attractive to us.
Despite being a perfectionist with meticulous attention to detail, Phil was good company on the day as he’s also laidback and has a great sense of humour — welcome traits when spending some time with us both during a tense morning and other moments of vulnerability throughout the day. It is remarkable how he strikes this balance between having the highest standards yet also going with the flow and being unobtrusive.
We unreservedly recommend booking Phil.

So so pleased to have won The Wedding Industry Awards regional event for the 4th year in a row, to be Wedding Videographer Of The Year 2023 in East England… and through to the national event in London in January… was a great event at Applewood Hall.. To check out all the TWIA winners take a look at the TWIA (The Wedding Industry Awards) webite… and fingers crossed for Janruary.
Great to have a blog post coming up on Lovestoriestv.com featuring me with UK wedding videographers. The article is here:
Here is some of the chat I sent them.
I am Philip London a UK based wedding filmmaker. I won ‘best videographer’ at the UK Wedding Awards and was Global Winner at the 2021 International Wedding Awards.
Application makes the difference for me. More time learning the skills of wedding filmmaking, more time planning and giving advice before the day, more time editing, to go the extra mile with creating the best possible film with the footage that has been captured. I aim to do less weddings per year, and be as enthusiastic about your wedding as you are, like I am filming my best friend’s wedding. Many wedding suppliers I work with just want to go home as soon as possible and are stuck on their set hours.
I want to create a more artistic wedding film, not stand directly in front of a list of people or things and press the record button. You could do that yourself with your iphone. A good analogy is that all of us wedding filmmakers are cooking the same dish, but we can all put in different amounts of each ingredient, to create our own unique taste. I prioritise light first, location second, composition third, flattering people fourth. Emotion goes without saying, anyone with a heartbeat will capture children laughing or a dad crying. I have no control over light for most of the wedding, so searching out beautiful natural light is the best way to make your film look amazing. If you prioritise location, then you will just be lucky with the light sometimes. This is why Hollywood films use £500,000 of lights because they are choosing location first, then have to create the light. Don’t get me wrong if you are getting married under the Eiffel Tower in Paris, we will have it work, but on average lighting is the priority.
Really pleased to have won ‘Wedding Videographer Of The Year’ for 2022 at the Wedding Industry Awards last night for East England.. third year in a row… more to follow on from this great night at Applewood Hall in Norfolk. Looking forward to the National awards. #TWIA22 #twia2022 #TWIA
To follow on from winning the local event of the ‘International Wedding Awards’ I am pleased to announce that I have won the country round level for United Kingdom and go through to the global round of the awards… this will be announced after Christmas so fingers crossed.
Pleased this week to have won the ‘International Wedding Awards’ local event and be through to the next round. The International Wedding Awards are based in Milan, in Lombardy Italy. After that the winners go through to the global event… which apparently might not happen with Covid 19 as there may not be enough entrants. The awards can be seen here.
With 2500 wedding videos, from 500 participants, from 32 countries, judged by 120 judges, I am so pleased and honoured to have won ‘The Best Videographer Award’, ‘Best Cameraman Award’ and ‘Best Wedding Highlights Film’, and 2nd place for ‘Best Editor Award’ in the Weva (Worldwide Event Videographers Association) CEE Category (European Awards). https://weva.pro/en/cee-award-2020/
This week I have the amazing following review:
We don’t even know where to start with this review, but here we go. Philip is an absolutely amazing wedding videographer and made our wedding video a masterpiece that makes us cry every time we watch it. He was able to recreate the same emotion we had during the most beautiful day of our lives. Philip is uncomplicated, professional, super motivated and friendly. He will do everything in his possession to make every detail look perfect! We were more than happy about the result that exceeded our expectations. It was a real pleasure to have this great videographer at our wedding who is so passionate and will even go do some extra work to make it even more special. We are really grateful we found him and can recommend him to anyone who wants a film like looking wedding video! Thanks again Philip 🙂

I opened it up to have a nice large quality WPPI trophy, which was nice…. so I took a photo of it…. from 2nd place in the Wedding Portrait Photographers International competition at the end of last year. Can’t complain about that… then went on to shoot the other trophies I have won this year… so you know where to come for product photography!
