Welcome to Something New Bespoke
Something New Bespoke Wedding Films was established in 2018 in South West Scotland and has quickly becoming one of the leading wedding film suppliers in the Ayrshire area. We work on a quality rather than quantity basis and only accept a certain amount of bookings per month to ensure we deliver your final films to you in a timely manner. Our cameras look like...err... cameras ! However they have have been put together to give outstanding Film quality, all of our cameras film in 4K ultra high definition, which we film in as standard, no 'optional upgrade' needed.
I am a solo operator, however I never take more than one booking per day. Its me you chat to and meet prior to your wedding to go over your day and how you want your final film to look and its me that turns up on the day to film it.
Quality over quantity
All our final films are supplied on a extremely high quality Bespoke USB meaning you can just plug in to your TV or computer and play. One of the main reasons we ditched the traditional DVD was to keep the quality of the 4K film, it also means you can copy and share your wedding films as much as you like eliminating the need to purchase more £70 USB's ! We split your wedding films up into sections making it easy to jump straight to your ceremony or speeches or if Aunty Jane wants to see you in your dress you can send her just the photoshoot.
Sometimes its the little things that mean the most and we believe to have a stunning wedding film means you need to have crystal clear audio of your ceremony and speeches. Again using the latest technology we use small lapel Microphones including Instamic, Tascam and Rode Go which are classed as being some of the best in the industry and are discreet but powerful to ensure you are not straining to hear your wedding vows when you are watching your wedding film.
Why is 4k important ?
Ok so we do make quite a big deal about the fact that we film our weddings in 4K Ultra High Definition without any upcharge. But why does it matter ? Firstly in this day and age we believe if you are paying for a wedding film then surely you want the best possible quality? Why would you spend £££ on your day and then leave your memories to poor quality resolution? As technology is gathering pace we want your films to still look fantastic in 5-10-20 years time !. To film in 4K (as most cameras and phones do these days) literally means changing the setting on the back of the camera, for this some videographers charge £££ for changing a setting ? Obviously there is a lot more to it, extra memory cards, a system that can edit the huge files, and storage to hold all the files, but taking all this into account we do not see why you should settle for less for your special day
Cinematic Wedding Films
Choosing the Cameras we have has given us the freedom to mount them on a 'Gimble' which allows us to move around and get footage that you would normally be paying thousand's for. As you can see from our highlight films we do not zoom in or zoom out, as you are not able to do this with your eyes it sometimes feels unnatural, instead we are able to physically move the camera to look at what is happening whilst producing lovely smooth footage. Working like this gives us real freedom to catch those unexpected moments and move around quickly without the need for bulky tripods again something you would expect from the high end wedding film brands. On top of this we fully edit your final wedding film taking into account the 'look' of the finished film to create something beautiful for that you want to watch time and time again. For us filming your wedding is more than just recording your day but to deliver something that is visually stunning.
Photo and video package
We often get asked if we can do photos as well as film, however we believe splitting ourselves in two would give half the quality ! SO have team up with a Glasgow Photographer to offer a photo and film package. You can choose to have your photos supplied on a USB or in an album. contact either of us to find out more. Kevin's website is www.kevinmcmurtrie.co.uk
We are looking to expand the Something New Team
If you have a love for creating something special then we want to hear from you ! We are looking for a second shooter to come onboard and help create Beautiful wedding films. It helps if you have your own camera gear but not essential. get in touch with us if you would like to know more
Drone Footage As Standard
We now include Drone footage in your wedding films as standard ! Dependant on weather and flying restrictions

We just want to pass on a massive thank you to yourself, as it is honestly unbelievable what you’ve done, we were totally mesmerised by how great it turned out.

There were times we actually forgot you were there as you blended in so well and that’s testament to yourself as the end result is absolutely everything, and more, than what we could ever have hoped for.

His communication and care for detail helped make our special day even more memorable.

Tanks again Mike,

Fiona and Alasdair
Mr and Mrs Stark headed north for their Isle of Skye outdoor wedding, a truly epic day
What Fiona and Alasdair said about their wedding films
Mike filmed our wedding on Skye in October 2021. We were delighted with our highlights video and it was great to get this just a week after our wedding and share with those that couldn't make it on the day. Now we have all the footage and it's amazing to have all the moments from the day captured, especially bits we missed ourselves on the day! The videos are such high quality and beautifully edited.
We had a great experience with Mike throughout the entire process. He was responsive, friendly and worked well with both our guests, photographer and celebrant. Mike's enthusiasm for what he does was clear and he definitely puts in the effort - especially travelling to Skye, dealing with all the weather conditions and our very last minute decision to hold the ceremony outside.
I'd recommend him to any couple looking for a videographer and think he offers great value and top quality!

The turnaround in getting both our highlights reel and full video back was very quick. We would definitely recommend Mike to anyone looking, his work and professionalism are outstanding!

Booking Mike as our videographer was the best decision we made for our wedding ! Cannot recommend Something New highly enough ! The professionalism Mike has shown throughout the whole experience has been second to none. We had to postpone our day twice and the communication throughout the pandemic was fantastic. Mike took the time to meet up before the wedding to discuss all the little details and was so down to Earth and a pleasure to be around all day! Our highlight video was just amazing and we woke up to it on our Honeymoon. We received our wedding film exactly four weeks after wedding and it was so lovely to watch and relive our day.
The quality of the film, the attention to detail, the choice of music and even the little screen shots just made it so special
If you are looking to capture your big day, look no further than Mike, thanks for everything

What Emmy and David said about their wedding Film
We booked Mike for our wedding on 6th March 2021. We had already postponed from 2020 so were just looking to get married despite restrictions. Mike was so helpful throughout the process and wanted to make sure our day was as special as possible given the circumstances. As we couldn't have all of our family at our ceremony, Mike offered to stream the service and even went to our venue for a test run to make sure everything would run smoothly on the day. He made us feel so relaxed during filming and the finished product turned out amazing!
Ruth and Martin
Due to all the restrictions in 2020 Ruth and Martin's special day at the stunning Lochside House Hotel was our only outing. I tried something new with a filter on the front of the camera giving the film a soft glow.
What Ruth and Martin said about their wedding Film
Mike filmed our wedding at the Lochside House Hotel on the 22nd December 2021. We were absolutely delighted with our highlights video and how quickly we received it. Fantastic to watch it back and see all the amazing memories Mike caught. As our wedding was in lockdown our video meant so much more as we were able to let family and friends who were not able to attend be part of the day. Mike was fantastic throughout very professional and worked brilliantly with our photographer. The effort Mike went to, to make our everlasting video as fantastic as it is was above and beyond.
Would recommend Something New to absolutely anyone with the highest rating

Christine and Stuart
Christine and Stuart chose the historic and super cool location of Dundonald Castle followed by a reception at The Carlton Hotel, Prestwick May 2019.
What Christine and Stuart said about their wedding film
Organising our wedding and the one thing I knew I really wanted was it on video to watch every anniversary. I booked Mike without my husband knowing, then we arranged a meeting and I dragged him along, once we left the first thing he said to me was, I think you’ve made the right choice here. (Obviously I already knew that before we even met Mike) on the day we wouldn’t even have known Mike was there, he was so discreet!! We got our video when we came back our honeymoon and it was just perfect he managed to capture all the things I as a bride miss on the day, I cried more watching it than I did on our wedding day. The quality of the video is amazing, and the way you personalise the USB was perfect, it’s such a unique touch (it’s the small things) thank you Mike for everything, being able to have this and watch it as many times as I like.......priceless
Melody and Robbie
Melody and Robbie enjoyed a lovely ceremony at Portland Church, Troon followed by their reception at the Marine Highland Hotel Troon May 2019.
What Melody and Robbie said about their wedding film
We cannot thank Mike enough for our wedding video! I met Mike at one of those wedding shows where all the photographers wanted was your money ! When we spoke to Mike his passion for what he does and his relaxed nature really came through! He listened to what we wanted and delivered exactly that! We were surprised that we hardly noticed him all day as this was our initial worry with a videographer! We didn't want to feel like we were being followed all day! A videographer was something we weren't going to have initially but we are so glad we changed our mind! Our day flew by so it will be nice to always have the memories and the video of bits we missed ! Absolutely worth the money 100%! Hopefully we will cross paths again in the future.
