About us

Wedding Video Company based in Manchester

Who are we?

Based in Manchester city centre Magic Hour Films Ltd is a new cinematic wedding and film company, borne out of 15 years of filming and editing experience.

 

Although our filming style is meticulous, organised and professional we aim to be completely unobtrusive. We like to film the action as it unfolds, without interfering with your schedule or how you celebrate your big day. As every wedding is different we don't direct or move people around for the right "shot", rather move ourselves around to find the right frame as it presents itself.  

 

This style of filming is the the most effective way of capturing the wedding naturally and making everyone feel comfortable. Its also often the secret of capturing those special moments, commonly missed. What is most important though is that ‘you’ the couple feel at ease. We will follow you through the different parts of the day from getting ready through to your first dance. All we ask is that we are allowed 20 minutes with you at some point after the ceremony to film some shots away from the hustle and bustle of the wedding. 

Film making is our passion, and we relish the challenge of telling the story of your wedding and all the characters and locations that feature in it, and condensing this down to a 3-4 minute film. All of our wedding films have been commissioned so far through word of mouth, which speaks volumes for how well this format works.

 

 

Why Magic Hour?

The "Magic Hour" in cinematography terms is the specific effect achieved due to the quality of the light at the first and last hour of sunlight during the day, when from the sun is very low in the sky.

Filmmakers often wait all day to capture special scenes in their movies at these times as the light is softer and more diffused. This light gives shots a warm, beautiful and inviting glow because it has to travel through more of the atmosphere before it gets to your eye. To capture such scenes in such a short window of time takes patience, experience, and confidence 

This ethos is the founding principle behind Magic Hour Films, (not that we'll be exclusively shooting at these times of day that would be very impractical!) More so that we are patient, experienced and confident that we can capture every magic moment of your special day.
