PHOTOGRAPHER & VIDEOGRAPHER
You are getting married at Claridges and looking for a videographer and photographer?
Then you are probably in the right place as we have shot weddings at Claridge's several times and we know all the secrets about this amazing venue ! We are totally in love with Claridges as there are so many gorgeous spots we can use to take amazing pictures and video. Yes, many more than just the amazing staircase and the exterior iconic views. Andrei Weddings is so proud to be among the best wedding photographers and videographers at Claridges and the first choice of many couples.
Here is one of our most recent wedding films at Claridges
When Kate asked us to film her wedding, she put an emphasis on the two beautiful venues - Claridges and St Mary Abbots Church in Kensington. For us it was a challenge as we wanted to offer our signature cinematic experience while being as discreet as we could. We love challenges and we believe this time we managed to get the brief done in an outstanding way. While two of us were filming and capturing the crystal clear sound during the religious ceremony, a third camera was floating around the back of the church where nobody could notice him and moving to capture dramatic and unique shots in an unobtrusive way. The bride and groom believe the results were astonishing and this is the most important thing for us. You can watch and tell for yourself if we managed or not.
I cannot thank Andrei and Claudia enough for our beautiful wedding video!! They went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. Very professional, punctual and friendly. The end result was so beautiful and we really will treasure it forever. Thank you guys for making our special day a treat to relive every day.

THE GETTING READY SHOTS AT CLARIDGES
The moment we entered into the Brook Penthouse Suite and we saw the amazing piano we knew we were going to create something really special. We have captured the father of the bride playing at the piano and we had plenty of time to get some shots of the parents browsing through the speeches they were about to read later on turning the mood of the film into a very personal one. While the bride had her hair done, a caricaturist was penciling some gorgeous sketches which you can also find in the highlights film.
The groom and his groomsmen went for pre drinks in so we could not miss the opportunity to get the amazing shot where they walk through the gorgeous marble corridors at Claridges.
WEDDING AT ST MARY ABBOTS CHURCH
There was no way we could have created this magical highlights film without the use of a third camera operator. Whilst the getting ready shots were captured back at Claridges by the two main photographers and videographers, a third shooter was taking his time to get the gorgeous gothic church in Kensington in its entire beauty. Being able to capture that walking down the isle emotion with the two of you looking into each other's eyes and spending time to get all the beautiful details that will eventually make you relieve the day are just a few of the things that define Andrei Weddings.
THE BRIDE'S ENTRANCE
As soon as Kate's make up was done, we quickly grabbed our entire kit and jumped into an Uber as there was no time to get the car and make it to the church in time. Yes, parking in central London is a nightmare when it comes to wedding videographers for whom time is the most precious thing. We were lucky enough to have the vintage white car of the bride just in front of us so we captured her entire journey towards the church. After reaching the church we had just enough time to set up for the ceremony while the third camera operator took over to capture the bride walking down the aisle with her father. We believe her entrance could have not been captured any better.
THE WEDDING CEREMONY FILM
Any experienced videographer will know that when you are filming in such an imposing place such as St Mary Abbots Church there is no way you can move around so this is why we spent time in advance carefully planning our positions based on the Order of the Ceremony so nothing is missed from the long film but we are silent and unobtrusive throughout the entire ceremony. We have used long telephoto lenses that allowed us to capture the couple and their emotions and reactions from a long distance. The sound of the ceremony including the vows was captured in our usual way. We have used radio microphones that are small and can be easily hidden and capture crystal clear sound.
THE WEDDING RECEPTION VIDEO AT CLARIDGES
The reception itself and the canapés served before it were elegant and full of gorgeous details that helped turn into one of the best reception parties we have filmed. The Claridges kitchen is one of the most - if not the most - famous one in the UK and what would have been a better way to accompany the canapés if not with a magician, a caricaturist and a string quartet? Everyone seemed to have enjoyed the live band playing later on in the night dancing and having a great time.
