Lakeland Wedding Video bio picture
  • Weddings filmed differently in Cumbria

    Based in Carlisle, Cumbria, near the amazing Lake District, we are a team of professional wedding videographers. We film weddings throughout the UK, however our unique insight associated with filming weddings in the Lake District makes us the ‘go to’ choice for many Brides and Grooms getting married in Cumbria.

    We also provide a combined videography and photography service which avoids the need to deal with two separate businesses.

    Established since 2004 we have built an enviable reputation for delivering a professional and visually creative service.

    We invest significantly in camera and editing equipment so we can incorporate the latest filming techniques in your completed wedding film.

Lake District and Cumbrian wedding videos

I’m Dave Draffan and along with colleagues Ryan, Paul and Ben I run Lakeland Wedding Video. We are passionate about producing wedding films which scream out quality and originality.

Our work is constantly evolving, we listen to your idea’s and want you to be involved. By doing so we raise the bar so we can exceed your expectations which is always our goal.

Why we believe we are different and the best at what we do in Cumbria

We have developed a filming approach and style which successfully merges the best elements of cinematic and traditional wedding videos. This enables us to deliver a finished wedding film which includes creative elements such as aerial, glide-track and steady-cam shots, blended with traditional aspects of a wedding videography, in effect, the best of both worlds. We’ll also listen to what you want and more than happy to respond with a bespoke service provision.

The equipment we use?

Our main cameras are Sony Z1 and Z5E’s plus Canon 5D MKIII’s which film in High Definition at 1920 x 1080 pixels. We also use a range of audio recording equipment including on-camera, shotgun and wireless lapel microphones depending on the situation. We seldom use direct lighting as we feel this produces a harsh and obtrusive effect, much preferring to use natural light whenever possible. We also use a quadcopter to capture aerial footage, glide-track and steady-cam to capture smooth moving cinematic footage.

Post production editing involves using Adobe Premiere CC and a range of other software applications such a Photoshop to produce on-screen graphics.
