Welcome To Something New Bespoke
The home of beautiful cinematic wedding films without the Hollywood budget !
Welcome to the Something New Page. As a small local business (based in Irvine, North Ayrshire) we genuinely appreciate your consideration for your special day. I have tried to list all you need to know about us and how we work on these pages but if you have any questions at all just drop us a line, we always love to chat about all things wedding !
2022 Limited Availability

Welcome to Something New Bespoke
Something New Bespoke Wedding Films was established in 2018 in South West Scotland and was put together as we saw a huge difference between the expensive wedding film makers and the budget videographers. With new technology coming out we knew we could provide wedding films to match the high end film makers without charging the Hollywood budget. 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 etc 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
Drone Footage As Standard
We now include Drone footage in your wedding films as standard ! Dependant on weather and flying restrictions
Thank you so much Mike, we absolutely love our wedding video, you captured the day perfectly.
We would highly recommend your services to anyone who is looking for exceptional standards and quality of work with such attention to detail. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer person to capture our special day.
You made us feel so relaxed and confident with your professionalism.
Chloe and Ryan McDonald
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!
Emmy and David Thain
"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."
Melody and Robbie Hardy
"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 ."
Christine And Stuart Rae
"Thank you for our Highlight video. Cheryl and I have just watched it and are so pleased. You have done an outstanding job and we are so appreciative of your time, talent and expertise."
Cheryl and Ray Johnstone
"Just watched our wedding video with not one but two bottles of Champagne. OMG!! Cant recommend Mike from Something New Bespoke Wedding Films Enough !! Amazing honestly if anyone is getting married soon, spend the money on the video not the silly decorations because it is a crazy quick day that goes in a blur, crazy what you soon forget or just miss altogether. Brilliant reliving our special day. Thanks again Mike you have provided us with so many laughs and tears a video we will treasure forever xxx."
Michelle and Ryan Gilmour
"We cannot thank Mike enough for our wedding videography! He was fantastic. We barely noticed him all day and the moments he managed to catch that I’ve seen so far in our preview are amazing! Cannot wait to see the full video! We are so very grateful to you mike, your amazing at what you do! ."
Maxine And Michael Connolly
"Could not recommend them enough. Friendly, professional and very helpful with any queries you may have. What an absolutely amazing way to remember your wedding day!!!."
Teah and Tom Collyer
"Mike that is amazing, thank you so so so much the tears are flowing! You’re awesome
Thank you again."
Nicola and Dylan Harper
"We have worked with Something New on several occasions and Mike has surpassed all expectations every time.
