a love given freely a committment to union an enduring togetherness a story worth telling
I hope you enjoyed my intro video above. I’m keen to find out more about your story, what brought you together, what fun times you’ve had, the things that drive you nuts about each other.
Here’s a little about me to get us started! I’m married to my beautiful wife Steph with whom I have three beautiful kids – Two boys – Ruan and Jesse, and our newest baby girl – Robyn!
I am truly blessed and don’t half recognise it sometimes – but it’s pretty sweet to live on the North Coast of Ireland with good friends and family nearby!
I’m keen that all my couples get to know the real me, and so I encourage you all to follow me on Instagram. I’m a pretty active Insta Story-teller! Give ‘pigmintfilm_clive’ a follow.
I didn’t get into this line of work just to churn out edits and go through the motions. I want each and every one of my weddings to be creatively produced, and celebrate what marriage is – reminding the couples of the good times they had with their nearest and dearest. I’m looking for couples who share my ambition in this, and will partner with me on your special day as we seek to capture your personalities and love for one another.
My family aside, I also have deep affection for rugby, coffee, savoury pastries, US TV shows, travel, my church community and the song 'Africa' by Toto.

Will your cars, your flowers, your cake, your shoes still warm your heart in decades to come like moving images and sound will?
Invest wisely - don't be afraid to kick typical traditions to the kerb!
I aim to create fast paced, emotional and beautiful films. A clip of guests sharing a giggle – brilliant! A clip of your uncle looking very serious – that might not make the cut. I’m not interested in standing at the sidelines capturing the mundane, I work my butt off all day – always striving to capture the best elements of your big day! I look for the joy and excitement and (sometimes tears) – and it pulls together so much better in a short film rather than a 2hr DVD.
Much of the day is filmed as it naturally happens. On occasions I’ll maybe ask you to stand in a certain place, or do something in a certain way – if this isn’t your style, just let me know. The couples portraits session is generally run by the photographer on the day, but I will occasionally chime in and ask for a specific movement, a kiss, or a walking shot. My feedback from previous clients has stated that I’m fairly discreet and enjoyable to be around on the day! awww shucks!
I’m a big fan of incorporating words spoken on the day – I find it adds some extra depth and emotion.
Sometimes it’s from the speeches, or a reading, or personalised vows or even letters/notes given to each other on the morning.
Of course this this may not be for everyone and I’m equally as happy editing highlights simply with music. To see a selection of my videos with music only, click here. There will be an opportunity in the lead up to the wedding to discuss use of dialogue (or none) in the edit.
Sometimes you will never know the value of a momentuntil it becomes a memory.
The work I produce is carefully and artistically thought through and put together in a way that maximises the feeling and emotion of the day. I refuse to hand over work that will result in any temptation towards the fast forward button!
The films I produce are not long marathons. There are options from 5minutes up to 25minutes. Full speeches and ceremonies are also available as standalone video files.
The lengths of my films I’ve settled on after 6 years in business. I believe them to be the best compromise of enjoyable energy while including all the key moments of your day.
Prices can start at £1650 dependant on many factors, but for full packages and prices please get in touch via the contact form below.
I look forward to hearing from you!

You have likely not been followed around for an entire day by a photographer and so don’t really know what to expect. Your expectations might be built on family wedding memories – forget all you think you know and really look long and hard to see what’s available. It is a very saturated market ranging in very different styles and abilities.
You are with your photographer for a long day – please make sure they are your kinda people! The key is to feel at ease and laidback for your photos. On that note, knowing your video and photography team are friendly and already familiar with each other can create a fun and relaxed atmosphere from the word go – this will certainly help. Whenever you are feeling relaxed and having fun, you loosen up, and it shows in your photos. You will open up, your posing will become more natural and vulnerable, a good photo/video combo will really capitalise on that, and capture the true emotions in your day.
Some photographers may have a mindset and approach that doesn’t necessarily go hand it hand with my style. I generally like to work with photographers who don’t use flash (unless it’s dark of course) and who allow their poses to breath, let the couple enjoy the moment rather than working too quickly. You aren’t just snuggling because you NEED to get photos done – you are snuggling because snuggling is NICE, and you just got frickin married!
Here are some photographers I know pretty well and there work isn’t half bad either!
If you enquire with anyone as a result of my recommendation – sure let them know!
A picture is certainly worth a thousand words but video is 24 pictures per second so...
