Destination Wedding Videographer
Welcome to our site. We (Ben and Kate) and a handful of our trusted friends, make up the Kissing Gate Films team of destination wedding videographers. We’re based just outside of London, in Maidenhead, Berkshire, and also out of Gibraltar, South Spain. We travel all over the UK and abroad to create beautiful and natural UK and destination wedding videos for all of our couples. Above is a sample of the destination wedding videos we create. In our blog you can find samples of our London wedding videos, South Spain wedding videos and Italy wedding videos. For an instantly accessible selection of all of them, head over to the ‘Our Films’ page.
Alternatively, see our wedding videos here.
I think what we love most about being filming weddings is trying to find new ways of editing our films. The aim is to make each one original and individual to that day. We have no set formula for what we film or how we edit, but instead constantly try new ways to tell the story of your day. We’re constantly battling each other to get the most beautiful shots. Even better if they’re shots that neither of us have tried before. We figure a little competition means our passion for filming won’t ever dip! And the longer we can keep going as destination wedding videographers – the better!
We feel really strongly about being discreet and making sure that we are not interrupting your day or getting in anyone’s way. The biggest compliments in our eyes are all the couples that come back to us saying “we didn’t even notice you there!”.
As for our equipment… We’re both a bit obsessed with buying new toys, so our kit is forever changing. The good thing about this is that we have loads of different options for ways to cover your day. So with choices from glidetracks to steadicams to cranes, we will make sure we come up with a package that captures your wedding in the style you wish.
The main thing we hear from deliberating couples is “We’re still not sure whether to have a wedding video”. Obviously we’re not here to force anyone into it, but if you are thinking about it (and by visiting our site we think you probably are) then we have one bit of advice for you – DO IT!!! Even if you don’t use us, definitely have a wedding video. It’s unreal how many couples we have heard of saying that not having a video was their one biggest regret. We have also filmed loads of brides who have been bought videos without wanting them, and now say that their films are their favourite memory of the day.
Videos capture feelings and moments that no photograph can, and with emotions running high on the day, there is so much that couples might miss. So go on…
Destination wedding videographers head all over the world to shoot. We feel very fortunate to see different places and experience once in a lifetime events and moments with people on the happiest day of their lives, and in the most exclusive and beautiful locations. We love capturing South Spain wedding videos. With family in Gibraltar, we are based in South Spain for part of the year, and love travelling around the country, creating Gibraltar wedding videos + South Spain wedding videos – filming in beautiful places such as Sotogrande, Tarifa, Murcia, Madrid and in the Basque country.
But saying that… some of our favourite venues in the world, are right here at home in the UK. Hedsor House and Cliveden are 10 minutes from where we live, and both are truly stunning wedding venues. Syon Park and Kew Gardens are a short trip down the M4. We’re spoilt where we live and we never tire of filming at these amazing venues. So if you’re getting married locally – please don’t be put off by the “Destination Wedding Videographer” title, and get in touch!
