Binky + Daz, Bedfordshire Wedding Video

Recently my sister-in-law-to-be asked me about our extended highlight edits. I always remember Binky + Daz’s Bedfordshire wedding video when recalling our longer highlights films. Probably to do with the fact that it was the first 10 minute highlights we did, but more so because I think it still stands as one of our best. We throw around the word “timeless” when describing out wedding videos. But truthfully how can you know that your films will be timeless?? I think Binky + Daz’s video might be the best proof we have that they just might be – as it’s over 5 years old now and still up there with our most current.

Binky’s words

Another thing I always remember when thinking about Binky + Daz’s wedding was the amazing testimony Binky gave – not just for the film Ben made for her – but for Wedding Videos in general.

Binky: Obviously when planning my own wedding I was pretty well connected to source some amazing peeps. Being in the industry and being a photographer, stills and film were obviously very important to me. I lost my Dad nearly 10 years ago and I have no moving footage of him. I know what weddings involve, the rare gathering of all the people you love the most.

For me a film was a must as I know in years to come some of those people sadly won’t be here anymore. On film you get to see the expressions, the way someone holds them self, they way they walk and if they throw their head back when they laugh.

The First Viewing

I still remember the first time Ben text me to say he posted a film on facebook and wanted my opinion. We had no idea it was ours! Off I trundled to have a look and had total goosebumps when i saw the title frame. I don’t even know how to write this next sentence, how to sum up how that film makes me feel. I watch it and smile, I feel like I am there all over again, I can smell the flowers, feel the sun on my face and feel the love from everyone in that barn. Ben was given a gift when he arrived on earth and that was to capture all of this. To tell peoples stories in the most magical way possible. He didn’t miss a single thing, what we ate, what we drunk, the people we love, our gorgeous pooch but most of all how we feel about one another.

Every time I watch the film I smile and cry all at the same time, it brings back amazing memories of what is by far the best day of my life. Ben will never know how grateful we both are for our film, for getting us, what is important to us and putting it all together in the most beautiful way.

I’ve just watched it again whilst writing this and I am off, teary but oh so happy, its beautiful and I love it so much! Thanks Ben x

Rock My Wedding

Binky + Daz’s wedding was published on the Rock My Wedding Blog in 2013 (think Charlotte’s probably a bit more on top of things than we are…). So if you want anymore info about her wedding or to see more of her beautiful photos by Marianne Taylor, head over there and have a look 🙂

Nairobi Wedding Video by Destination Wedding Videographers Kissing Gate Films

Nairobi Wedding Video

Ben’s now been over to Nairobi a lot. The Kissing Gate Films pile of Nairobi wedding videos is racking up. He counts himself lucky of course. Nairobi is a beautiful country and always an adventure (link contains explicit content). Devi & Neer’s wedding was absolutely incredible. What’s more is Ben got to chill out with Anil and Beena, of Zurih Sia, which is always a pleasure! This is a high budget, high tempo, amazing Nairobi Wedding Video.

Teaser with Highlights to Follow

This video is just the teaser edit, so if you were sitting there having finished watching, gutted that you’d seen all you could of their Nairobi Wedding… Worry no more!! The highlights film will follow soon.

An oldie but a goodie

Alisa and Guy’s Bibury Court Wedding Video reaches the blog over 4 years after their wedding. But we think it’s standing the test of time as we still love it.

Bibury Court, Cotswolds Wedding Video

Sadly Bibury Court Hotel is no more. After fighting for years to remain a hotel, it was converted back into a private house in 2015. Which is very sad for future wedding couples looking for somewhere magnificent in the Cotswolds to get married.

One of a kind

Alisa and Guy’s wedding was beautiful. Alisa remains one of the most beautiful brides we’ve ever filmed. Her dress and her amazing headpiece were stunning. They are the loveliest couple and we were honoured to be able to film their day and to even have had the chance to meet and spend time with them. We loved catching up with them at Dan and Gabi‘s wedding the year later too.

Kastellorizo, Greece Wedding Video by Destination Wedding Videographers, Kissing Gate Films

Greece Wedding Video – finally!

We have had many enquiries to shoot a Greece wedding video before, but for one reason or another they have never booked. Until now! Finally we got one, and we couldn’t be happier. It’s such a stunning country and a real joy to film. Jane-Elise and Lee’s wedding was amazing. They got married in the Agios Konstantinos and Agia Eleni church on Kastellorizo and had their reception at the Megisti Hotel Jane-Elise looked incredible and the venue was definitely one of the most stunning that we’ve shot.

New friends

One of the best things that can happen to a wedding videographer is really getting on with the photographer. We’re lucky that this happens much more often than not, and have made some really great friends in wedding photographers over the years. Ben was lucky that this happened again in Kastellorizo. Ben and Stelios Kalisperis instantly hit it off had a great time shooting Jane-Elise and Lee’s wedding together. Before long they were heading up a castle together with Stellios’ girlfriend, Konstadina Olivia Filippou, for an impromptu couples shoot of the two of them together (video to follow soon enough). For anyone needing a wedding photographer in Greece – he is definitely worth checking out! You can find him here!

More new friends

Lucky for Ben he also met another photographer whilst shooting GVs around the island. Always one to make friends easily – Ben spotted Mert Gokalp taking photos in the harbour, chatted him up, had some G+Ts and headed up a mountain to get some footage! Mert also kindly gave us the underwater footage for this wedding video – Thank you!!

Grace + Laky’s Barbados Wedding Video by Destination Wedding Videographers Kissing Gate Films

The Crane, Barbados

Grace and Laky’s wedding at The Crane, Barbados, was amazing. It’s a real privilege to film weddings like this. The barite took place on Foul Bay, which is just around the corner from The Crane. Laky arrived in style on horseback, and his guests flooded the beach with vibrance and colour as the danced around the horse. The party then left on pink and blue buses – so all in all – very photogenic!

Interfaith Ceremony

The ceremony took place on a cliff top, after cocktails overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Grace looked beautiful, and so happy as she walked down the isle to a sunny, breezy wedding ceremony. The reception followed, in The Crane‘s town hall, with one of the most amazing bands we’ve ever seen. Everyone was up for the party and dancing and singing all night long.

It was a total pleasure to be part of Grace and Laky’s wedding day, and to be able to film their wedding video, and also take their wedding photos – great double whammy 🙂

Enjoy! xx
