Xiaoxiang & Yuan wedding video shoot at Downing College

This is probably my favourite wedding video I’ve produced to date – we were given lots of creative freedom and I was able to produce something I was happy with. Taha and I covered the whole day and I turned around the edit in under a week after the wedding.

This is a little glimpse behind the scenes (BTS) on a pretty relaxed day in the summer, where I filmed a wedding at Downing College in Cambridge with Taha Khan as my second shooter. I stuck to my usual style of being unobtrusive, with few posed posed shots: just capturing the atmosphere of the day.

We shot it all flat so that I could grade it in post and match the cameras:

The editing style was fairly linear through the day and fitted well with the song.

The only real challenge of the day was filming in the chapel – I had contacted the priest in advance and he did not allow cameras within the main section of the chapel. However we were briefly allowed during the signing of the register to get a couple of shots.
