Super 8 Wedding Videography
BELFAST NORTHERN IRELAND
Film looks like how we dream, has a beautiful natural warmth and grain that brings images to life. I believe that your wedding day deserves to be preserved and presented in a format that feels like a memory and looks like love.
Super 8 is a small film format which became popular in the 60’s and 70’s, it creates an authentic ‘home-movie’ feel. With modern scanning technology it’s now possible to capture high-resolution 4K video straight from the Super 8 film negative.
Choosing Super 8 film is not just an aesthetic choice, the format helps me tell your wedding day story in a unique way that feels incredibly cinematic.

Why Super 8 Film?
It’s a great question why use a vintage film format when most wedding videographers are able to use HD cameras and the latest drones and gimbal technology for a relatively low cost?
Well, I feel that your wedding day is this incredibly unique moment in life that deserves to captured in an equally special way. Physical Super 8 film just has this beautiful, natural glow that goes against the artificial modern HD look and all its little imperfections capture life in a wonderfully truthful and nostalgic way.
It’s about creating memories that last and best tell your story. The idea that many years from now, someone could find your wedding film captured on a super 8 film reel and relive that moment in time is exciting.
What is Super 8 Film?
Super 8 Film is a vintage style film format. It is a physical reel of 8mm film contained in a lightweight cartridge. Each cartridge has enough film to capture 3 minutes of footage, so on your wedding day I use at least 4 cartridges to record all of the little moments.
Whilst Super 8 is a vintage format, the film cartridges I use are by no means old. Kodak continues produce fresh Super 8 Film using modern film stocks like 500t and 50D, the colours from these are crisp, bright and can handle the changeable light conditions on your wedding day. These same modern film stocks are used in Holywood films and adored by directors like Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and Wes Anderson.
