wedding film glasgow

Yo nosey parkers!  It’s been a while!  Excited to get our groove back on with the Supplier Spotlight series … and first up?  It’s oor Barry!

1/ business: Worldly Nomads Films

you/your team:
Worldly Nomads Films is simply myself and my lovely wife Laura. I handle the shooting and editing, she handles the bookings, admin and helps out on shoots when needed. To be honest, I prefer shooting solo on a wedding day. I like to think of myself as a film ninja, capturing people naturally and in as relaxed a way as possible. Most guests don’t even realise I’m taking video! I find I get my best shots when people are acting naturally, and I think that comes across in my films.

2/ describe your workspace:
When I’m shooting weddings, I can be anywhere from a church to a field, forest or mountain. I love the variety of the weddings I shoot, and having to adapt to different conditions. The best wedding for me is variety, nice indoor spaces, great external spaces and variable weather conditions. Those three elements create a fantastic variety of shots for a wedding film.

3/ where did it all begin:
Antarctica. No seriously! You may have noticed from our name and website that we love to see the world, so we split our time between shooting wedding films in Scotland with our love of travel. On one of our most recent travels through South America, we took a boat down to Antarctica with a couple of friends, where they got engaged! As we celebrated on the journey back to Argentina, it was agreed I would shoot their wedding film, and the rest, as they say, is history.

4/ favourite work to date:
Hard to say, every wedding day is different, and each couple comes with their own personalities and quirks. I love having to adapt to different venues, couples and conditions, it makes the videos so unique! I guess if you pushed me, the wedding of our friends whom we were with when they got engaged in Antarctica is a highlight. It was the first wedding film I made, and being there from the engagement to wedding was just lovely.

5/ who/what inspires you:
Aside from the numerous film makers I follow and the inordinate amount of time I spend watching their work, I’m inspired by passionate people who aren’t afraid to be who they are. I value self awareness highly, and I’m inspired by people who have figured out who they are, and have been able to embrace and love themselves for who they are. That, and Attenborough. His most recent documentaries in glorious slow motion HD are beautiful, and I appreciate the hard work and time the film makers must go through to get a 3 second shot.

6/ describe a typical day:
Every day can be totally different! Somedays I’ll be shooting a wedding, other days I’ll be neck deep editing a film (which is where the bulk of my time is spent). I also meet with potential couples for coffee, reply to enquiries etc. When we’re travelling, I can be mixing it up with locals in markets, sitting on top of camels (never again) or climbing glaciers, it can be very unpredictable. When I’m editing, I work from a home office in our apartment in Glasgow. I have a glass desk (which for some reason I prefer to an opaque one go figure).  I’m usually found with a pot of tea on my left and various wires, memory cards and cameras on my right. Headphones are almost always in my ears as I edit videos and test music against the footage I take. It’s intense but I love it.

7/ wheres your favourite place to go?:
We’re really enjoying the Finnieston area in Glasgow at the moment, there are so many nice places to grab food and a drink there. Our all time favourite food is Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) so any place that has that and other good Asian dishes is a winner for us.

8/ favourite wedding venue:
Oh gosh now you really are asking difficult questions! Any venue that has a good variety of indoor and outdoor spaces wins for us. I love shooting at Crear as its almost like a blank canvas for couples to put their personal twist on.

9/ best piece of advice you’ve been given:
I like the quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside you”

Hello hello!!

We have some perfect rainy day material for you today guys!!

A cockle-warming wedding film by the super Eileen of Sugar 8

“Cat & Joakim and their friends and family, flew from all over the world to the beautiful Ardanaiseig Hotel, to ‘tie the knot’ in style.  Cat & the girls got ready in the boathouse, with the help of Laura Gray & her beauty team.  The flowers were by the lovely Sophie of I Heart Flowers – and all looked amazing!
There was a truly emotional ceremony which had everyone in tears, including myself, the photographer AND the humanist, as they told the story of their journey together, in both English & Spanish, before everyone cheered the tying of the knot.
Scotland was true to form, raining nearly all of the day, but when it had calmed to a light drizzle, we made it out to capture some of the breathtaking scenery all around us, and it looked as beautiful as ever..”

Everyone meet, Cat & Joakim ..
