Fox Films Videography

Tell us a little about yourself?

Hi, I’m James! I created Fox Films to offer couples cinematic, timeless wedding films whilst providing a professional yet calm and friendly approach throughout the wedding planning process and on the big day itself.

Having graduated University in 2009 with an honours degree in film and television studies and production, I have since worked in the film, television, and creative industries before establishing Fox Films to focus solely on wedding videography.


How would you describe your wedding videography style and what makes you unique?

I create natural, candid, and cinematic wedding films for couples nationwide and use film and audio from your day to tell your story. Whilst music is important to enhance the emotions of the day, I utilize the audio from your wedding day including the best moments from your ceremony, speeches, and other diegetic sound to drive the narrative.


How would you describe your working style? Will you have an assistant on the day?

My approach is hands-off, allowing your wedding day to unfold naturally with little to no staging. I collaborate with you, your venue and other wedding suppliers to ensure that I can capture every moment down to the smallest of details.

I work as a solo videographer, so the need for a second shooter is only if you’re getting ready in two locations (more than a 10-minute drive from each other) and you would like me to capture both morning preparations on film.

What type of equipment do you use?

I use three Lumix S5 mirrorless cameras with various lenses and filters throughout your wedding day. I also have a DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone, which is used for establishing shots of your wedding venue, and this is included in my film package*. I also use discreet, professional wireless microphones to capture audio from your ceremony and speeches!

*Drone use: Weather dependent & venue permitting


Do you shoot in HD? What format with the final version be in?

Shoot in 4k, delivered in HD. If you would like to add on your ceremony and speeches films, these are shot in 4k and delivered in 4k.


What can you offer couples? Can they customise the package with you?

I offer one all-encompassing package with both a trailer and feature film included. I also offer a series of add-ons if couples wanted to opt for any, most of which you can add on even after your wedding day. All of this information can be found on my website (www.fox-films.co.uk/info)

How far in advance should couples book you?

Usually 12-24 months in advance to ensure good availability, however, you can book me further in advance. I may also have late availability, so please do get in touch no matter how close or far away your wedding day is.


What information do you need from the couple before the wedding day?

Key information that will allow me to let you know if I am available for your wedding includes your wedding venue and your wedding date. But please do share anything and everything with me about your wedding plans, I’d love to hear more about you and your story!


What’s included in the package?

Highlight Film:
A 1-2 minute trailer sent soon after your wedding day ahead of the feature film.

Feature Film:
An 8-12 minute cinematic film that captures the essence, feeling, and emotion from your big day. The film is interwoven with key moments (visuals and audio) from your speeches and ceremony too!

Drone Footage:
Aerial footage of your venue is included as standard as part of my package (weather & venue restrictions permitting).

All-day Film Coverage:
Bridal preparations (usually 1.5 hours before the ceremony) to approximately 30 minutes to an hour after your First Dance to capture lots of dancing! Don’t worry, I don’t clock-watch!

Full colour correction, colour grading, and music licensing to allow for online sharing.

Highest-quality Digital Delivery:
You’ll receive a personalised link to your online gallery to view, share, and download your films in the highest quality.

What parts of the day do you usually capture?

Everything and everything, I am there all day! Usually, 2-3 hours before your ceremony for couples’ preparations and drone shots of the venue. up until the first dance and beyond. Don’t worry, I don’t clock watch!


How long does it take you to edit?

1-2 weeks for your trailer and 4-6 weeks for your feature film.


How long with the final version usually be?

Your trailer will be between 1-2 minutes long and your feature film will be 8-12 minutes long.


What are your favourite trends?

Every wedding I attend is completely different, and I take inspiration from all of them from the traditional to the contemporary. I love soft, natural light for morning preparations, golden hour couple shots, candles during the wedding breakfast and plenty of stunning florals.

My favourite trend from a wedding videography perspective is the ‘stripped back’ approach, minimal equipment and being able to blend into a wedding without being in the way.


What are you expecting to see become more mainstream/more common in the next year or two?

I expect wedding videography to become as popular as photography. The way that people ingest and interact with media today is so visual (and often video based), and wedding videography offers an arguably more vivid perspective for you to re-live of your big day.
