This afternoon I am thrilled to introduce you to Emma & Ryan from Jolly Good Wedding Videos. We all talk about how important photography is to a wedding, but believe me, getting your wedding filmed is just as important. Wedding videos, just like photography, come in many different styles. Emma and Ryan’s work is cool, energetic, fun and full of personality. You can see there is a real passion in their work as they treat each wedding completely individually. Working with so many different couples and a variety of style of weddings, they always add their own fast paced style of filming. If you are looking for a fun-loving couple to join you on your day, then you need Jolly Good Wedding Videos in your life!
As a husband and wife team we have a genuine love and passion for filming Weddings whether it be around the UK or overseas. We aim to capture moments in a relaxed, unobtrusive & creative way. We are super chill and love a raw & authentic feel – so we film from a distance, mostly handheld, allowing everyone to relax & enjoy the day whilst getting the most natural shots. Its also great to mix it up so laughter, banter, and dance floor antics are cool with us and help create the videos we love to make – beautiful, energetic, fast-paced wedding videos that make you rock, sing and cry!
