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!
Packages and Options
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 prefer not to produce work that will result in any temptation towards the fast forward button!
The films I produce are not long marathons. Main films are between 15-20 minutes and short films range from 4-6minutes. I’ve settled on these lengths of films after 11 years in business. I believe them to be the best balance of enjoyable energy while including all the key moments of your day. Full speeches and ceremonies are also available as separate video files.
I will happily send you through my brochure with pricing upon completion of the Contact Form. My pricing reflects the professionalism and experience I bring having grown through 11 years in the business. It reflects the effort, care and work put into the craft.
I operate a tiered pricing system – peak and off-peak. These tiers are set based on a variety of factors. Being available and present with my young family at certain times of the year is very important, as is spreading out my work load across the full 12 months of the year! Have you ever thought about getting married on a Tuesday in February??? Please get in touch so I can price you for your unique wedding day.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Favourite people, favourite places, favourite memories of the past. These are a joy of a lifetime, these are the things that last. - Henry van Dyke
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.
How I work
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.
We recently had Clive video our wedding! He brought such a lovely warm chilled atmosphere…. I didn’t even notice he... was there half the time! He came on recommendation and he really didn’t disappoint! Thank you for being part of our day clive! We loved your creativity and how you made us feel so at ease!read more
This review is long overdue as my husband and I were married last October. Clive was brilliant on the day and is... extremely talented in bringing the best memories of our wedding day to life on film. He was great craic, had a brilliant sense of humour and worked really well alongside our photographer. Couldn't recommend Clive highly enough as a wedding videographer. Our video was absolutely gorgeous and he captured our essence as a couple perfectly. Will cherish the memories always. Thank you so much Clive!read more
I cant recommend Clive enough for your wedding videographer. His talent for capturing the whole day is truly... unbelievable. He exceeded any expectations we could have and more. It was so lovely looking back at all the details and he seemed to get a shot of every guest at some point which is so precious to have. Your wedding day is such a whirlwind it really is priceless to have a film that brings you right back to every moment and feeling. We will cherish our films for the rest of our lives.read more
From start to finish Clive was a consummate professional and made planning and having our wedding easy and fun. We... couldn't recommend him highly enough and the results were incredible. From the smallest intimate details to the must-have marquee moments nothing was missed. He listened to our asks and took the time to get to know us during the day so that when our videos came they captured not just our day but also our spirit.Arranging a wedding at home in Ireland from the other side of the world was a daunting enough task. Finding the perfect videographer seemed impossible. From the first moment we made contact with Clive we knew we'd hit the jackpot. Thanks so much Clive!read more
Clive was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, and the end result is even better than what we could have... imagined. Everyone we’ve sent it to have all said how amazing it is so thank you again Clive for all your hard work. Our friend got married a few years ago and didn’t have a videographer and she said she’s so regretful of it now having watched ours. It’s something we’ll have forever and captures the day so well. Thank youread more
A videographer was something Ricky and I decided against for our wedding day - it can get a little scary when so many... eyes are on you. I can't even begin to express how happy we both are that we changed our mind. Clive was laid back, friendly and made us feel totally at ease......and even though he was very ill on our wedding day, showed patience and understanding with us and our bridal party throughout our big day. We can be quite a handful � I can't explain how thankful I am to Clive for giving Ricky and I something so perfect, something that we will be able to shed happy tears over for the rest of our lives. The memories he has put together so beautifully on film will be treasured forever and are 100% priceless in our eyes. Worth every penny. As we look back on the best day of our lives.....you really were the best decision we could have made. Thank you....��� #riverdalebarn #wharrywedding #11.5.18 #thankyouread more
Clive is one of the nicest people I came across during the whole wedding planning process so down to earth and chilled... and a real pleasure to have around on your wedding day. Anyone planning a wedding should not see a videographer as an unnecessary extra, your dress goes into a box never to be seen again, and shoes are never worn again but a video lasts forever and clive has captured our day and every couples wedding day so beautifully best decision I made was to have Pigmint capture our day thanks a million Clive you are fab!!read more

Cannot recommend Clive highly enough.

His work is first class! !so so pleased with the finished product!! Worth every penny and more!!!read more
Highly recommend, couldn't ask for anything else, top quality. Was a pleasure to have you around on our wedding day... to capture many off the moments we would have missed other wise. Great to see what our day looked like from someone else's point of view. Thanks again.read more
A last minute cancellation from our videographer meant we were totally stuck for out wedding the next day! Luckily... Clive was available and within 48 hours had produced AMA amazing record of the day, from the preparation in the morning right through until the end of the evening. Really laid back and easy to work with. I highly recommend.read more
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!read more
Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. - Robert A. Heinlein
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!
