Cotswolds Wedding Videographer

Cinematic & Natural Wedding Videography in the Cotswolds

Hello!

Welcome to Fox Films! I’m James and I’m a Cotswolds wedding videographer based near the gateway to the Cotswolds in Thame, Oxfordshire. 

Thanks for visiting my website, and more specifically this ‘Cotswolds wedding videographer’ page that’s specifically tailored for you, a couple getting married in the Cotswolds! Well, I used to work in marketing so these skills do come in handy!

Rest assured, everything you read and watch on this page isn’t recycled and has been created specifically for you and your wedding in The Cotswolds!

Congratulations!

Let me begin with a huge congratulations on your engagement!

I hope you’re enjoying everything ‘wedding planning’ so far! As a wedding videographer, I’m usually either first or last to be picked as a wedding supplier – and I absolutely don’t mind when I get picked! However, my diary for 2024 and 2025, and even 2026 are beginning to fill, so I do recommend you get in touch sooner rather than later.

A Bit About Me

This isn’t a career I’ve fallen into, I absolutely love filming weddings in the Cotswolds and pride myself on producing cinematic, documentary-style wedding films for my couples to look back on for a lifetime. 

I got married myself in 2023, so I’ve recently been in the same boat as you! Although, I’ve been told to tell you all that my wonderful wife Zoë did most of the work.

You can find out more about weddings I’ve filmed in and around The Cotswolds below and the package that I offer. But if you are keen to chat with me without reading on, please do get in touch with me by tapping the button below!

This is me!

Portfolio

Cotswolds Wedding Films

Take a look at just a few examples of wedding videography in the Cotswolds.

As my portfolio builds, more examples will be added in the coming months including films showcasing weddings at numerous Costwold based wedding venues.

Beautiful Cotswolds Wedding Venues

OK, so I might be biased as I live here, but filming weddings in The Cotswolds is just incredible.

I’ve been lucky enough to have been asked to be a Cotswolds wedding videographer at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Primrose Hill Farm, and Parish’s House Bath to name but a few.

However, it’s not just these stunning venues that make being a Cotswolds wedding videographer so exciting. I find so much quality content in the surroundings of the Cotswolds itself including its jaw-dropping countryside vistas.

All of this, combined with the wonderful couples I work with makes for a stunning finished wedding film. You won’t be disappointed!

Cotswolds Wedding Videographer

My Approach

You have already taken the first step to find your videographer for your Cotswolds wedding!

Let me help you understand how I'll film your big day.

Wedding Videography Style

My style and approach to Cotswolds wedding videography (in fact all wedding filmmaking regardless of location), is to do so in a natural, candid, and documentary style.

Rather than staging shots, my candid approach allows me to capture the finer details of your Cotswolds venue, and the special moments and emotions at your wedding.

Wedding Videography Equipment

My wedding videography equipment is professional, yet entirely unintrusive. Gone are the days of using huge cameras (how it used to be when I did this over a decade ago), which means I can integrate rather than intrude on you or your guests throughout the day. More often than not, people don’t even realise I’m filming!

 

Pre-Wedding Chat

I work with all of my couples getting married in The Cotswolds (and beyond) before their wedding with a free wedding videography chat. This is a really important step to go through my approach in more detail, discuss your day and find out more about you so I can tailor my wedding videography approach to suit you.

To get a flavour of my wedding videography style, check our my wedding film gallery where you’ll be able to watch a selection of my work.

James is outstanding. From pre wedding to post wedding his communication style, presentation and work ethic was incredible. He is creative, and the quality is impeccable. He works with speed to turn around content quickly whilst not compromising on quality. He is a joy and pleasure to work with and really goes the extra mile. Can’t wait to work together again for another life event!

We had the absolute pleasure of appointing Fox Films for our wedding at Notley Abbey, in June 2023. Admittedly, we were quite late to finding a videographer - However, our chance encounter with James at the venue left an immediate impression. He exuded enthusiasm, personality and professionalism – we immediately knew we needed to book him. What's more, he agreed to capture our big day with just a month's notice. After receiving quotes upwards of 5k from other videographers, James's pricing was incredibly reasonable, when others were seemed to be putting a premium on a short notice booking! From that point on, we never looked back. Our initial meeting with James reassured us completely; his style and approach resonated with us, and we felt entirely comfortable entrusting him with the task. On the actual day, he seamlessly integrated with the photographer and other vendors, all while remaining unobtrusive. His adeptness at capturing countless incredible moments was nothing short of remarkable. James not only put us at ease (we're not typically accustomed to being in front of the camera), but he also exceeded our expectations when it came to including beloved dog, Juno. He managed to capture her playful energy & got some awesome shots of her zooming around. The videos James delivered were nothing short of exceptional. He promptly provided us with a teaser video that we adored, followed by a feature film that had us laughing and crying in equal measure. It was as if we were instantly transported back to the day. When we shared the video with our family and friends, the response was overwhelming, with many commenting on how exceptionally well it was put together. We requested a minor edit to include some additional footage of a speech, and James turned it around within the same day. Working with James was a delight. He is an absolute professional and an exceptional videographer. He preserved the joy, laughter, and magic of the best day of our lives. Without hesitation, we wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone in search of a fun, capable, and professional videographer. A massive, heartfelt thanks.

I still can't believe how lucky we were finding Fox Films. James responded quickly to our initial enquiry, and after a chat on the phone I knew we were in safe hands. A delight to work with and a great communicator throughout the wedding process. James was also a great person to have around on the day - fun and professional. The result was an INCREDIBLE teaser film, within a week of the big day, followed by an amazing longer feature film. I would highly recommend James, he is a real talent!

Where to begin… James is absolutely outstanding! From the initial phone calls and email correspondence, we knew he was the man for the job. We were both really excited for James to capture our day and we have not been disappointed. Nothing was too much for James and he made such an effort to be there from the very beginning to end. James was even up for an early start at the sea, capturing the boys enjoying a morning dip… in matching personalised budgy smugglers! James helped us both feel at ease during the preparations on the morning of our wedding. He somehow managed to capture all the amazing shots whilst being discrete and never made us feel intimidated in front of the camera. In fact, most of the time I didn’t even know he was there(in the best possible way)! Throughout the day James worked incredibly hard. We didn’t make it easy for him and the weather didn’t either! James not only had to manage around rain but also 46mph winds. He kept calm throughout and took to the challenge with ease. He worked efficiently, professionally and remained very flexible throughout the day. In fact, he actually embraced the weather and captured some amazing shots when the sun did come out and some hilarious moments in the crazy wind! Lots of our guests agree that James had a very friendly and professional presence on the wedding day. James fit in so well with our wedding party and we couldn’t be more grateful. Since the wedding day, his hard work has continued. James is incredibly efficient and organised. Despite having his own wedding day a few weeks after ours, James worked hard to provide us with our trailer video that we are absolutely blown away by. The videos we have seen so far have been more than we could have ever hoped for/ imagined. He continues to amaze us with his unbelievable talent as a videographer and editor. We were actually not initially going to have a wedding videographer but it was the BEST decision we made. It is so special to be able to treasure these memories forever with family and friends. If you’re hesitating to book… just do it. We promise you that won’t regret it! Thanks so much James! Our instincts were right, you were the perfect person for the job! Charlie and Tom

James captured our day perfectly from start to finish. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we received from him. From the very first face time call I had with him to confirm details I just knew we had found someone special who was not only going to do a amazing job with our wedding video but someone who was fully invested in listening to exactly what we wanted out of it and someone who would fit into our day like a old friend. It was so important to us that we captured our 2 young sons a lot during the day and James got some beautiful footage of them that we will be able to look back on and remember forever. He sent us our trailer film just 2 days after the wedding and it blew us away then just 4 weeks later we received our final film and wow just wow it was better than we ever could have wished for. James is so professional. He was in touch on the run up to the wedding and then stayed in touch after to keep us updated on progress even though he was flat out with other weddings. The whole service was a 10/10 and we would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a true professional who loves what they do to capture your special day on film. If you book him you won’t be disappointed.

We absolutely LOVE the film created with such talent and attention by James. We weren't originally going to book a videographer but very glad we did. Both the trailer and the feature film brought back such amazing memories – it was a very special day which flies by so having it on film actually helps the memories come back!! James got the trailer to us when we were on honeymoon which was so great to watch together and we were surprised at the speed he turned round the feature film too. He was very flexible and so easy to work with. The imagery and structure is perfect and it all fits together with visuals and sound/speech content so well! All the small details that you captured are great – the random cat (!) the getting ready in the morning, the drone shots, train in the background, church ceremony, readings and bells. You even got our cheeky kiss from the car and other moments we didn't know you were there for. We love the timing of everything especially around the speeches, ourselves and all our friends and family personality types captured perfectly - just as we know them! Very unobtrusive and very talented! We would recommend (obviously) Clare and Will x

James at Fox films captured our day perfectly. He has a way of making you feel very relaxed and comfortable, we were both a bit dubious about booking a videographer, but it was the best decision we made! James captured precious moments we weren’t even aware he was recording. The film was amazing, it was edited beautifully and caught all the atmosphere and events of our day. 1000% recommend fox films, we will treasure our film forever! If your thinking about booking Fox Films do it, James is a great guy and is genuinely invested in your day and wants to capture the best moments for you to look back on. Thanks Fox Films!

We recently got married and hired James as our wedding videographer, and honestly couldn’t recommend Fox Films enough. James was our favourite supplier of the day and the memories he has created in his videos will last forever. James made us feel so comfortable on the day and didn’t make us pose or do anything in particular which we loved because it’s so important for the day to be natural. Even behind the scenes he was helping us out, and we also got to have a couple of video calls before the wedding day to run through details which made us feel at ease. After our wedding day, we went straight on our honeymoon for 2 weeks not expecting to hear anything until we got back, but we were pleasantly surprised when James released a small clip from our first dance that we could share to our friends and family, and then our teaser trailer film also whilst we were away. The trailer film was amazing and captured the highlights of the day just perfectly. Also, the reaction from our friends and family was just brilliant to hear all the positive comments so that emphasised it too. Then, as we came back from our honeymoon James sent us our feature final film. To do all the editing within 2 weeks is so great and shows how committed James is to his work. The feature film James has produced is simply stunning and exceeded our expectations and more. He did the most amazing job and every single detail is perfect. It is no understatement to say we’ve watched it 50 times already! It actually makes us emotional just to see the moments of the day unfold and the background music is complemented perfectly by moments from the speeches and ceremony which really take you back to the day. Thank you for everything James, from Hannah & Jake

FAQ

Where many videographers have pages on their website offering Cotswolds wedding videography, I am actually located in what is called the gateway to The Cotswolds in Thame!, Oxfordshire. 

I film weddings both locally here in Oxfordshire and in neighbouring counties and regions including Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, The Cotswolds, Hertfordshire, Warwickshire, Bedfordshire & Surrey. If for some reason you’ve ended up here and you’re not in The Cotsolds I’m also happy to travel further, so please get in touch.

You will get your two-minute highlight film between 1-2 weeks after your wedding.

The feature film may take between 8-12 weeks depending on time of year. I of course keep you informed throughout the process and if I need a bit more time, I will let you know as soon as possible.

As part of the editing process, I will select the music for your film to reflect the vibe of your wedding video. It is an integral part of the editing process that I select from a licensed library of music, and largely dictates and reflects the end result of the video.

Due to copyright law, we can’t use Michael Bublé or anything else commercially released. However, the music I use is professional quality and trust me, you’ll be Adele’d and Bublé’d out after your wedding anyway!

I’m always happy to hear suggestions from you of any particular style you’d like to capture. I can also send you a list of tracks for you to choose from.

Simply get in touch with me and I will arrange a suitable time with you to have a video call and discuss you wedding videography requirements.

All I’d require once you’re happy to go ahead is a £300 deposit upon booking and the remaining balance six weeks before your wedding day.

I believe in capturing the moments of natural beauty rather than directing you into place. The natural reactions of you, your families and friends are the ones that you will look back upon and relive those intense emotions for years to come.

No one wants to look back at a forced, uncomfortable pose! But hey, if you want to pretend to be a character from The Avengers, go for it – I may just keep it in (or most likely leave it out)!

Boring bit… but yes, I hold all necessary public liability insurance. I can supply all certification to you or the venue directly once our booking is confirmed.
