Yorkshire Wedding Videos
I’m Pete, the owner of Yorkshire Wedding Videos and being creative is what drives me. I graduated with a combined degree in Graphic Design and Film Production from Leeds Polytechnic and ever since then I’ve worked in the creative industry, culmination in my present role as a wedding videographer.
I have 3 decades in the video and film making industry, including working for 8 years in the Education Unit at the prestigious National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford (Now The National Media Museum), I have the skills and talent required to make a fantastic job of filming your wedding day.
I have also spent time as part time lecturer at Futureworks University in Salford where I taught video editing and post-production at degree level. Working with some of the brightest students certainly keeps you on top of your game!
I filmed my first wedding in 2007 and have never looked back. Straight away the good feedback I got back from happy brides and grooms showed me I was on the right path – they were not wrong.
Why Commission me as your wedding videographer?
Having studied graphic design and film production at degree level not only gave me a good technical grounding but also helped develop a sense of ‘what looks good’ and I apply this to every aspect of wedding film making. Not only that but I am also intuitive when it comes to the needs of my couples, sometimes couples want a little input into what I do and that’s always OK by me! Your wedding day is an unrepeatable event and it needs to be captured with all the passion and emotion shown on the day, I like to think my films have soul.
The combination of all of the above, with my 15 years experience as a wedding videographer, means that the capturing of your special day is in good hands, with the expertise and creativity required, coupled with the latest professional equipment, you don’t need to look any further. My background in documentary means that I am very discreet on your wedding day and capture your friends and family enjoying the big day without me being at all intrusive, I also capture all those little moments that you may miss, the day goes so quickly for the bride and groom however I am constantly looking out for those special moments you want to re-live time and time again.
Of course the wedding day is all about the bride and groom however It’s also a celebration that involves a big gathering of family and friends and I see it as my job as a wedding videographer to capture that spirit as authentically and creatively as possible.
When I’m not filming
When I’m not filming weddings you can usually find me on the Yorkshire moors with my wife by my side walking our border collie, spending time with our awesome families, or playing guitar with my band, my dad taught me how to play when I was 16 and I’m still playing to this day!
