Best Of Drone Wedding Cinematography By White Balloon Films

Over the last 2 years, White Balloon Films has pioneered the safe and legal use of drones in wedding cinematography. As creators of truly cinematic wedding films, aerial videography is a small but powerful tool in helping us tell the story of a couple’s special day. This is especially the case given we are based in Scotland, a country blessed with innumerable extraordinary wedding venues in extraordinary locations. As we look forward to 2017, let’s look back to some incredible moments captured from the sky by White Balloon Films.

All of the drone video in this compilation was filmed on either our current setup of Phantom 4 or our earlier system of Phantom 2 + H3-3D Gimbal + GoPro Hero 4.  The GoPro 4 footage was filmed in protune mode and de-fisheyed in post. All footage has been colour graded by White Balloon Films.  The Phantom 4 is extremely practical to use at weddings thanks to everything you need being packed into a single case.  We carry this in a backpack so when the opportunity arises during the couple photo shoot, we are able to fly as quickly as possible.  The hardest part of capturing aerial video of a couple at a wedding is time pressure.  Thanks to a lot of practise, and the use of intelligent flight modes like course lock, point of interest and active track, we are able to set up the Phantom 4 and capture the shots we need in a maximum of 10 minutes.

Locations and venues featured in this video include: Ardkinglas Estate, Pollok House, The Byre At Inchyra, Mykonos Greece, Glenshee, Glencoe, Loch Awe, Archerfield House, Inverlochy Castle, Crear, Lesithi Plateau Crete, Delamere Manor, Duntreath Castle, Hopetoun House, Hylands House, Mar Lodge, Murthy Estate, Rowallan Castle.
