wedding video Cornwall

“Cinematic wedding films to treasure forever”


Our Approach

We listen to your requirements then film your wedding in a relaxed and unobtrusive style whilst capturing every precious moment as professionally as possible.

We can shoot weddings with one camera but for the best results we suggest you choose a package with at least two cameras & cameramen to guarantee the best coverage.

Our Background

We have built up our experience of wedding filming but also have a strong background in filmmaking so we understand how to create an engaging story of the day. We are based in Lostwithiel but are prepared to travel anywhere to shoot wedding video Cornwall & Devon.


Great Service

Choose from a range of packages that suit your taste & budget with the option of adding extras at your discretion. We’ll look after you from the 1st meeting to the handover of the beautifully presented DVDs which your friends & family will love.  If you wish for us to use your own choice of music in your video we welcome you to provide us with a cd of your desired tracks.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if our wedding venue has filming restrictions?

It is up to the couples to find out from their wedding venue whether filming is allowed. In this day & age, most churches now allow filming but some still may charge you an extra fee to have your wedding filmed We suggest you ask them directly and let us know if there are any problems that we need to work around.

Can we also hire a Wedding photographer?

Yes! We only shoot video of your big day so we recommend you still hire a good photographer as well to get those glamorous photos for the family album.  We will work closely around your photographer on the day, making sure not to spoil any important shots.  We’ve never had a problem working with any photographer and we’re happy to let them take the lead.

Do we need to provide food for you ?

No, but if you can this would make our day run smoother and ultimately your film will be better!  Wedding days can be very long so if your reception venue are able to spare us some food to keep us going whilst your guests are tucking into their own lovely meals, we’d very much appreciate it!  If this is not possible, please inform us in advance so we can prepare a packed-lunch.

When will we receive our finished DVDs?
Typically we’ll shoot about 8hrs of video per wedding. It will then take roughly 1-3 weeks to create the final film depending on how busy we are.
How much is the deposit and when should we pay it?
The deposit is half of the price we quote you which should be paid at least one week in advance of your wedding day. The remaining balance should be paid upon delivery of your DVDs
Won’t your video cameras get in the way?
Nope. We take great pride in covertly filming your wedding in an unobtrusive style. We won’t shove a camera in your guests faces while they’re eating or film over the shoulder of the vicar during the ceremony. We document your wedding naturally, sometimes from a tripod and sometimes from a handheld position, depending on the surroundings. All our camera kit is professional gear. If you’d prefer us to get stuck into the action and film your drunk guests falling over trying to dance then let us know and we can adapt our shooting style.
Can we order more copies of the DVD?
Of course. In each package you’ll get at least 2 copies and extra copies are £10 each. Just let us know how many extra you’ll need after the wedding and we’ll provide you with as many extras as you need for friends and family. They make great Christmas stocking fillers!
Will the DVD be customised with chapter menus and music?
Yes! Each wedding DVD we produce is bespoke with animated chapter menus so you can jump straight to any part of your day without having to sit through the whole film.  We’ll also add any music you like.
What music do you use?
Anything you want.  Just tell us the artists and track names you would like us to feature as background music in your film and we’ll expertly feature as much as we can in the film.  Alternatively, let us pick your tracks as we have great musical taste, honest!
How do you record the sound from our wedding?
We will use wireless tie-clip microphones to record crystal clear sound from your ceremony.  We usually fit one to the Groom for best results.  We also record general atmosphere sound from the church and reception via shotgun mics from our cameras.  All sound recorded will be professionally mixed down onto your dvd to provide an immersive soundtrack of your day.
Why should you choose us to film your wedding day?
Because unlike many of our competitors, our wedding videos are fun!  We document every aspect of your day and focus on the small details others probably miss.  We shoot on both professional HD camcorders and DSLRS for a mixture of ‘film-like’ shallow-depth-of-field looks & crystal clear coverage.  We’re polite, professional and we’re not happy unless we’ve captured your wedding in the best possible light.

What a video!! Absolutely superb. A moving and human record of a special day that makes us smile. Captures the small moments that would have been lost from memory. A must for any couple. Thank you Motion Farm for allowing us to relive that day.

Deneka & Ben

We only decided that we wanted a viedographer at our wedding a few weeks before the big day, and James came highly recommended by a friend who had used him at their wedding last year. Luckily for us, they were available. Motion Farm were brilliant from the very beginning, asking us exactly what we wanted filmed and what backing music we would like etc, but on the day, we didn’t even notice they were there!

Everything was done so professionally and in such a subtle way that they managed to catch guests just at the right moments – flowergirls pulling faces, pageboys playing outside (wreaking havoc!), heartfelt hugs and of course, the speeches. For me as the bride, being able to watch the guests arriving and the reaction of Tom waiting at the alter was amazing – without the video I would have missed out completely.

The video is that good, we’ve ordered about 10 extra copies for family members and whenever we watch it, the music and the way everything has been put together takes us right back to that day and it feels like we’re doing it all over again! I, of course, cry like a baby every time I watch it (which is most days, to be honest!), because it’s so beautifully put together. Having photos of the day is great, but nothing could ever compare to watching the day in ‘real life’. I wouldn’t be without the video, it really is my most treasured possession and using Motion Farm was the best decision we ever made, without a doubt.

James has even put together a trailer of the dvd, which shows highlights of the day along with emotive backing music. We’ve put the trailer on Facebook and it’s had so many positive comments (and again, more women crying!) Thank you James for making such a perfect video of our special day.

Well where do we start. The Motionfarm is an excellent company. We booked them for our wedding on the 1st September 2012 at Boscundle Manor at very short notice we hasten to add and the service was first class. James immediately got in touch with us to find out what we wanted from our wedding video and we were not disappointed. The service before, during and after were fantastic. We hardly noticed that they were there on our wedding day they very unintrusive and very professional.

We have watched our wedding video and showed it to family and friends at every opportunity and everytime we laugh, smile and cry (with happiness). We have recommended them to everyone we know that is getting married and have even had people borrow the DVD to watch that are looking for a company to video there wedding and everyone has been really impressed. We were able to upload a 3 minute trailer of our wedding video onto facebook and the comments have been lovely.

We cannot recommend The Motionfarm highly enough and are so pleased that we had them to video our wedding.  Amazing company & amazing service and very professional.

David + Lucy

James did a brilliant job with our wedding video. We didn’t make things easy for him as we transported our guests from the church to the reception via boat which was a challenge in itself.

We were clear that we didn’t want a formal video. We wanted something that would capture the fun and spirit of the day and James achieved that and then some.

The film far exceeded all of our expectations. It is the perfect souvenir of our day and has been watched again and again by friends and family.

Don’t bother looking elsewhere – book James now for your wedding.
