Fine Art Wedding Cinematography Throughout Scotland and the UK
Handcrafted, Cinematic Wedding Videos Throughout Scotland and the UK
Hello and welcome to White Balloon Films! As a husband & wife team, we take tremendous pride in producing genuinely cinematic wedding videos of your special day. Based in Glasgow, we are so lucky to be a part of so many incredible weddings around Scotland and the UK and we absolutely relish the challenge of capturing couples’ memories in the most stylish and cinematic ways possible.
What is the one constant about our work? Our couples hardly even notice we are there! We get our best shots when you don’t know you are being watched, so it’s a win-win. We capture great shots for you while you enjoy your amazing day, blissfully unaware that we are even there. Have a watch at some of our highlights videos and see if you can spot how many times the bride and groom look at the camera…here is a clue…never!
So why White Balloon Films? Well here’s the thing, filming a wedding well is tough, really tough. By filming well, we mean stylish yet interruption-free coverage of your ceremony and speeches, i.e. no camera-shake, no random zooming, no obstructions, no out-of-focus shots, top quality audio recording of whoever is conducting the ceremony, not to mention the two of you, any readers and the congregation/guests’ singing. And let’s not forget that this is an uncontrolled environment for us in which we cannot ask you to do things twice!
All that being said, it is a challenge that we have relished and dare we say, conquered. In the over 100 weddings that Stewart and I have filmed, we have continually deconstructed and analysed each and every component part of your day to further refine our approach to capturing your memories. The inherent creativity evident in our work when combined with this rigorous, analytical methodology has proven to be a very complementary approach indeed.
Having established ourselves as a leading wedding videography team in Scotland and the UK, technology doesn’t stand still and nor should we. With this in mind, in 2015 we replaced all our cameras with state-of-the-art 4K ultra-HD DSLR models, added a licensed (and therefore legal!) aerial videography capability to our skill-set and invested in an astonishing electronic steadicam to give us even better cinematic camera movement when filming your day.
Do feel free to see what our couples past and future have to say about us on Facebook and Google+ and above all, please do not hesitate to Contact Us for more information as to how we can be of assistance on your day.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Kimberley & Saul – August 2015 – St Conan’s Kirk & Cottiers, Scotland Wedding Video!
“White Balloon Films produced the most wonderful film of our wedding day; we are absolutely thrilled with it, as are our families. Stewart and Alina are lovely people to have filming your special day – they are completely unobtrusive yet manage to capture the most beautiful shots. They are extremely talented film makers and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any family member or friend getting married. They are quite simply, the best of the best!”
Fiona & Alan – June 2015 – Duntreath Castle, Scotland Wedding Video!
“White Balloon Films captured our wedding day beautifully. We still can’t believe how amazing our full video is and we received so many compliments from friends and family about how wonderful the highlights reel was too. Undeniable talent from Alina and Stewart – a very professional couple and creative geniuses behind the lens. We were impressed with the story-telling, editing and whimsical quality of their videos which we rarely see in wedding films and booking them as our videographers was, without a doubt, one of our best decisions. Thank you again Alina and Stewart for creating a perfect memento of our special day.”
Gemma & Gavin – May 2015 – Dumfries House, Scotland Wedding Video!
“We booked White Balloon Films for our wedding at Dumfries House in May 2015 and were absolutely blown away by the finished product. You only have to watch a few of the White Balloon Films to see the skill and effort that goes into creating them. Stewart and Alina were a pleasure to deal with and have capabilities that not all wedding filmmakers have. The feedback from friends, family and even strangers (!) to our wedding video has been unbelievable. Thanks both for capturing our day!”
Donna & Mark – April 2015 – Pollok House, Scotland Wedding Video!
“We could not recommend White Balloon Films highly enough. Of all the expenses for the wedding, I believe the film from Stewart and Alina was the best investment of all. They were a dream to deal with, so efficient and clear in communications. They are clearly passionate about filming and this comes across in the final video. The quality of the film is remarkable and we have watched it over and over again. Thank you Stewart and Alina for capturing our memories so well.”
Natalie & David – March 2015 – Dundas Castle, Edinburgh Wedding Video!
“Stewart and Alina were both lovely, discreet and professional on the day, but most importantly the finished product was AMAZING!! So many friends and family commented the DVD was like a movie. It really is the best money you will spend on your wedding as once the day is all over it’s so special to be able to relive it all and to see a lot of moments you may have missed on the day. We’ve only been married just under 12 weeks and have already watched it multiple times!”
Stephanie & Steve – August 2014 – Inchyra Byre, Scottish Wedding Video!
“My husband and I (eek!) received our fabulous wedding video this week – and we just wanted to thank Stewart and Alina for their amazing work! Their professionalism on our big day was second to none – it really is a compliment when I say I hardly noticed them all day. They captured our special moments beautifully, as well as all of the styling and detail too. The end result was something special, and has captured the memories of our wedding day forever. Thank you both!”
Katharine & Patrick – July 2014 – Duntreath Castle, Scottish Wedding Video!
“I wanted to drop you an email to say that we really love the DVD, and it will hopefully stop the memories from fading quite so fast! You did such a great job, and so many people have commented that they didn’t even know our wedding was being filmed, so you definitely addressed all of Paddy’s initial concerns! We’re both really looking forward to watching the DVD with my parents when they come to visit in a couple of weeks, and I’m sure they will be similarly impressed. Thanks so much again!”
Nisha & Steve – August 2014 – Edinburgh Wedding Video!
“We received our wedding dvd yesterday, and it was even more stunning than we expected! We loved every second of it! Stewart and Alina’s work is absolutely fantastic, they’re both lovely people, and so discreet on the day that we didn’t even notice them until halfway through! We are so pleased with our wedding film, and incredibly happy that we chose White Balloon Films for this lovely reminder of our wedding. Thanks again, from The McD’s!”
Alison & Peter McNulty – November 2013 – Glasgow University wedding video!
“I’ve just finished watching our full wedding DVD and it’s absolutely amazing! Your attention to detail and just how you have captured the day is truly amazing! It has brought back so many lovely memories and was great to watch the ceremony and speeches again. Really the day was a whirlwind and I couldn’t remember much, so the DVD has really helped me relive our perfect day!! The film is truly professional and a real credit to you both, so thank you so much!!”

Our parents are over the moon too and the extra copies are currently doing the rounds among our relatives who all agree that you captured the day perfectly. The quality, style, music, everything about it is just amazing and I am so pleased we booked you. I think every couple should have a White Balloon Film!”
