Welcome to Sam Baly Films

Wedding Videography Bristol & South West

Welcome. Sam Baly is an award winning Bristol wedding videographer and photographer who creates stunning cinematic films for romantic couples in the UK and beyond. 

Whether you’re having a small intimate elopement, a destination wedding or a big wedding with all the trimmings, it is my pleasure to give you the very best in wedding filmmaking. That means wedding films that are beautifully shot and filled with emotion, natural portraiture, and attention to details. Films that contain all the most memorable moments of your wedding – those that you witnessed and some you didn’t.

Photos are wonderful for capturing the essence of a moment, but there’s a lot they can’t do. When done well, video excels at providing an immersive experience, preserving the emotional reactions of you and your loved ones, and immortalising a day that would otherwise be consigned to fading memory or photos alone.

A wedding flies by so fast. When all the hard work of preparation is finished, the vows have been made, the speeches given, the dances danced, you’ll have your rings, your promises and your dress.  A wedding film preserves those memories forever in a unique way you can re-experience. I’d love to help you create something amazing.
