Luxe Wedding Films

Luxe Wedding Films has been providing couples with beautiful bespoke cinematic wedding films for the past four years with the aim each time of crafting the perfect wedding film which will last for generations to come. Luxe Wedding Films is driven by the thought of preserving such an important memory which will allow for future generations to see and hear that special day time and time again. The idea of also making a visual record of those closest to you is something which also really drives us, be that grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles and so on. We have been steadily becoming leading Essex Wedding Videographers. This journey commenced four years ago.

Up until late 2018, all Luxe Wedding Film productions were branded under the former brand, Aaron Compton Videographer. Like most wedding videographers, the journey first began for me in 2014 with the filming of a family members wedding, this was at Spains Hall in Finchingfield, Essex. Shortly after my first wedding it was time for my brother to say his vowels to my now sister-in-law, I grasped at the opportunity and filmed their big day too. With these two weddings under my belt I then had waves of wedding videography enquiries roll in from those close to the newlyweds.

Over the past four years whilst perfecting my wedding videography skills I have also been awarded various educational qualifications. Firstly a diploma in Creative Media Production followed on by a degree in Digital Television Production at the prestigious Ravensbourne University in London. Whilst studying I continued with my journey to be ranked alongside some of the best Essex Wedding Videographers in the region. My time in education helped prompt me with the technical skills and ability needed to bring visual ideas to life. I was also fortunate enough to work on various television productions and also work on other exciting projects including documentary work – a style which can be found in Luxe Wedding Films work. When the university course came to an end I made the decision to go full-time and make my passion a successful business.

As Essex Wedding Videographers, we have covered a huge array of wedding venues across Essex. In addition to Essex, we have also worked in venues in surrounding counties which include Suffolk, Norfolk, Kent, Surrey as well as London. The following list compromises a selection of wedding venues which we have been fortunate enough to work in (you can see some of the featured films by clicking here):

Like many other professional Essex Wedding Videographers, the equipment used in Luxe Wedding Films work has evolved considerably since the humble beginnings. We use some of the latest recording equipment to capture wedding days as best as possible. These include 4K cameras, a range of different audio equipment as well as gimbals to allow creative camera work.  A dedicated editing setup is also used to piece together wedding films.

In 2014, weddings were filmed by just myself, however in 2017 I introduced two videographers to certain packages to allow more flexibility and creativity in both the filming of a wedding day itself as well as the editing of a wedding film. Two wedding videographer packages has helped to deliver even greater wedding films which allow even more creativity. Packages which feature two wedding videographers provide different perspectives throughout the wedding day as well as multiple camera angles during those integral parts of a wedding day such as the wedding ceremony and wedding speeches.

Luxe Wedding Films is on the way to being known as one of the regions most sought-after Essex Wedding Videographers. Each year we are exploring new venues, meeting new couples and creating memories which will last for a life time. We would love to have you and your wedding day be part of our story.

Leez Priory Wedding Videos: August 2018

Leez Priory is on the top of my favorite venues list and it was great to be back! Leez Priory history dates back to the 16th Century, therefore there is much more than meets the eye on your first visit. Hidden remains of former parts of the Priory can be spotted amongst the grounds. Leez Priory wedding photos always looking dashing, as do video. Sam & Nicole chose to make Leez Priory their chosen venue for their wedding day, a perfect choice. When they first contacted me I was very excited by the thought of more Leez Priory wedding videos.

The story of how Sam & Nicole met is a lovely one. When Sam was visiting New York City he had no idea that he would meet his future wife in a bar by the Empire State Building. Before they knew it they had fallen deeply in love and their love story was beginning. It was lovely to see that Nicole’s family from the United States came over to witness them exchange vowels and celebrate the special occasion.

Peace and tranquility ran throughout Leez Priory during the morning when we arrived. Leez Priory sat quietly and calmly under glorious sunshine as the preparations for the day began. The weather was on our side and a Leez Priory outside wedding ceremony was confirmed at The Great Tower.

Nicole, her bridesmaids and parents began their preparations in The Fisherman’s Cottage and soon moved into the main house to finish their preparations and for Nicole to get into her stunning wedding dress. Sam and his groomsmen began their preparations in The Granary.

As always, before we knew it, it was time for the wedding ceremony to commence. Family and friends began to gather at The Great Tower of Leez Priory and Nicole’s father proudly escorted his daughter down aisle to the Great Tower.

Sam & Nicole chose to follow traditional British & American traditions during the wedding ceremony and Nicole’s long lasting friend Nick officiated the wedding ceremony.

Once the ceremony concluded cocktail hour commenced and Nick the photographer captured his photos of the happy couple with their friends and family. Afterwards myself and Nick took the newly weds for a stroll around the grounds of Leez Priory to capture newlywed shots. We managed to capture some cracking shots for their Leez Priory wedding video.

Sam & Nicole were fantastically natural, genuine laughs and real happiness shined throughout the stroll. Great for Leez Priory wedding videos!

An hour or so after the wedding ceremony family and friends began making their way out the main doors of the main house and towards the Coach House of Leez Priory.

Nicole’s dad, Joe kicked off speeches, followed on by Sam and his bestman, Rob.

Sam & Nicole chose to dance with their parents before their first dance together as husband and wife which was a lovely touch to an already great day. Sam and his mother danced to ‘You are my Sunshine’ by Johnny Cash. Nicole and her father danced to ‘Butterfly Kisses’ by Bob Carlisle. Afterwards Sam & Nicole danced to ‘How Would You Feel’ by Ed Sheeran.

The party soon kicked off with guests pouring onto the dance floor. Leez Priory wedding videos usually feature great dancing scenes due to the great dance floor which Leez Priory offers.

Many congratulations to Sam & Nicole on their truly wonderful wedding day. It is one I will always remember. I can’t wait to be back at the venue to produce more Leez Priory wedding videos in the future.

Leez Priory Wedding Videos: March 2018

Leez Priory wedding videos are always stunning so I was excited to be filming there! What an absolutely lovely wedding day for such a lovely couple out in the glorious Essex countryside. On March the 23rd, it was our pleasure to be able to capture Gemma & Ryan’s wedding day on video for them at the magnificent Tudor manor that is Leez Priory, just outside of the Chelmsford/Braintree area and just over an hour away from Central London. It was my first time filming at Leez Priory and I can’t wait to be back there later this year! It’s also worth mentioning that this was my first wedding film of 2018 following on from the last wedding season.

Due to the grand size of Leez Priory, it’s unsurprising that there are seven beautiful ceremony rooms which couples can choose to tie the knot in. Gemma & Ryan chose ‘The Great Hall’ which features charming beams with a feature fireplace.

We were greeted with reminiscences of the ‘Beast from the East’ which in turn, made for some fantastic establishing shots of Leez Priory in addition to special shots of the newlyweds. A big shout out must go to Gemma in particular who embraced the freezing temperatures which enabled us to get those shots of her in her dress with the fantastic backdrop of Leez Priory and its manicured lawns and lakes, it really was picture-perfect.

Like all weddings I have filmed, there was not a dull moment at any point. We were treated to an excellent firework display by local Colchester company, Dynamic Fireworks which managed to shower down on Leez Priory in beautiful colours.

We were fortunate enough to work alongside Simon from EPS Photography once again. It was a great opportunity to catch up and collaborate with ideas on how best to capture both Gemma & Ryan with a very snowy Leez Priory.

Many thanks once more to Gemma & Ryan for entrusting us to capture their special day on video. It was a pleasure to be their wedding videographer and I wish them all the very best for their future together. I look forward to producing more Leez Priory Wedding Videos in the future.
