I'm Harry and I live in sunny Bournemouth with my wife Penny.
I work from an office in Basepoint Business Centre with my Brother Charles. We run Plato Video, a business my Dad set up over 40 years ago.
I grew up around my Dad's video equipment and have always been fascinated by technology and motion picture.
I filmed my first wedding for a family friend in 2004 and loved capturing the event and creating the video. After studying film production at University I continued filming weddings for family friends until I felt experienced enough to turn professional in 2012.
Not long after joining my Dad’s business I decided to create Harry's Wedding Films so my work would have its own personal identity.
Reliving the past is my passion. I enjoy finding new ways to make this experience more natural and expressive.
This is what a wedding video really is - documenting now for later. It doesn't sound like much but in terms of value for money and enjoyment, hiring a videographer is easily the best investment you'll make towards your wedding day.
What sets me apart:
I appreciate the importance of capturing not just decent HD cinematic video but sound as well. You really need quality sound to truly recreate the atmosphere of the day.
I'm one of the few videographers who offer customised packages. I have a range of set options but if you need something bespoke I can be flexible.
I lovingly craft all of my videos. No part of the editing process is outsourced.
I'm a documentary style guy, I prefer to be unobtrusive and unnoticed.
I can shoot weddings on Super 8 cine film!
So that's me in a nutshell! If you haven’t already you can learn more about my wedding video services through the links below.
My Favourite App
I thought I'd share an app I use in my personal life, it's called One Second Everyday.
It's a video diary which creates one second clips from videos you make and stitches them together to produce a video covering anything from a few months to a year of your life. Basically it's a way to remember something from everyday of your life.
If you don't think you can commit to it long term I'd definitely recommend it for a holiday or in the lead up to your wedding day - just as a way of remembering yourselves and your journey during this time of your lives together.
It's a great way to look back on your life - a whole year in 6 minutes! It's available on Android and iPhone, check out their website for example clips here.
