Not simply a recording - Your special day deserves cinema
My name is Clive McLaughlin and I live on the North Coast of Ireland with my wife Stephanie and super awesome son Ruan!
I’m passionate about video, and I’m passionate about presentation. I have a fondness for telling everyone about good things that happen and so I feel blessed to have the job of communicating the very best of a memorable occasion through film.
But if you really want to get to know me and stay up to speed - get engaged with the Facebook and Instagram links above!
Apart from my wife and son, I also have deep affection for rugby, coffee, my dogs, savoury pastries, US tv shows, church community, pipe smoking and the song 'Africa' by Toto.

Best of both worlds - Cinematic short highlight accompanied by extensive full day coverage
The standard package includes the following three main elements and prices starting from £1100 (2016).
Currently only accepting bookings for 2016.
3/4 Minute highlights Trailer
This short trailer set to a fully licensed soundtrack is the quickest and easiest way to refresh your memory of your special day. From bridal prep to first dances, all in a few short minutes but never failing to spark the re-emergence of all you nerves, excitement and joy. Who doesn’t have 4 minutes to spare? You could watch it every day (if you wanted to!). It’s small enough to transfer onto your phone or tablet to take with you everywhere you go. Show it to people you bump into, or those catchups with old friends over coffee! The trailers are also uploaded to Vimeo and are great for sharing your day with pride through social media.
20/30 Minute Feature Film
This is the main event! Like the highlights trailer, but at a more leisurely pace. It will give your heart time to get fully welled up! This film will also cover the day from start to finish, emotively soundtracked in places but also featuring more of the natural audio from the day (the chat and nervous giggles!). You will also see more of your guests mingling and enjoying the day. The feature film also includes more extensive parts of the service, and always the vows in full. If there are good friends reading or praying that you want to make the edit – no problem – just let me know!
The length of this is unpredictable as it depends on the length of real time elements such as bride procession, vows, first dance etc… The average edit is 25 minutes.
Speeches in Full
Does exactly what it says on the tin! For however short or long they end up being, you will get every single choked up tearful word, and every cringey borderline best man joke! This is filmed on three cameras which allows the edit to remain interesting despite being focused on what location for such a long period of time.
Take it or leave it?
No, no, no! Certainly not. The above package is simply the most popular way of doing things. It covers most of the requirements for most people. If you feel it’s not quite right for you, please do get in touch with your suggestions and I will do my best to meet your needs!
As far as communicating an occasion or an activity is concerned, there is surely no better method of communication than video
“We would recommend Clive highly! He was such a lovely presence on the day: not intrusive and yet there for so many special moments. We loved our beautiful highlights video and the full version too! The video complimented the relaxed style of our day so well. We received our beautifully packaged discs within a couple of months and we know they will provide a lifetime of viewing pleasure. I had to be convinced to get a video – but I’m so glad I did. Thanks for such a great job Clive!”
Laura & Danny
“Clive we are over the moon with our wedding video! The packaging was amazin and a wee popcorn to watch it with such a personal touch! Really loved the 8min highlights such a great idea! Me and joe can’t thank you enough you were amazin on the day! And now we have these awesome DVDs to Remember our day forever!”
Joe & Louise
“We had our wedding video within a few weeks and were delighted with the quality and value for money. Some of the footage taken wouldn’t have been out of place in a Hollywood movie. Clive was also very professional on the day, making the day feel more relaxed and helping it to run smoothly. Would recommend PigMintFilm to everyone who is thinking about having their wedding day filmed!”
Pete & Donna
“I would totally recommend pigmintfilm. Loved our wedding video. Clive was there from first thing in the morning to the first dance. In the video I can see so much, every time I watch it, I see another special moment. If you are having a wedding and are in two minds about having a wedding video, just do it! You won’t regret it!”
Jason & Andrea
“We were thrilled to receive our wedding DVD and enjoyed watching it from start to finish. We especially loved the highlights montage and we couldn’t recommend this highly enough to your future clients. One thing that struck us when watching our video was how stealthily you’d managed to capture so many precious moments; you were so unobtrusive that we forgot your were there and were delighted with the results of your efforts.”
Brendan & Rose
“Very professional and excellent turnaround time, would highly recommend to anyone!”

I have now moved over to USB delivery! The product is totally unique to my customers and was bespoke designed by myself. The benefit of USB is that it can be viewed on PC/Mac/Laptop or on most modern flat screen TV’s or set top boxes with USB ports. It’s so much more flexible than DVD too – you can make copies of the files with ease! Make spare USBs for your friends or upload to cloud storage for sharing and safekeeping, even transfer to your smartphone or tablet for viewing outside of your home!
Here is a list of photographers whose work I love, who I’ve enjoyed working with, who I think are great communicators. I’d recommend these guys to my brides for a whole host of reasons.
Your love matters. Your story matters. It deserves to have a film about it!
It’s very easy in self-employment to overdo it, take on too much, or neglect family time and special occasions. For this reason please understand that there are other factors at play other than being ‘already booked’. If I feel unable to take on your date, do not fear, I have a list of other cinematographers that you could try.
2015 dates are no longer available.
Hope to hear from you soon!
