About Bride & Groom Films - Richard Finlay

Richard Finlay is a multi-award-winning wedding videographer. For 14 years, Richard has been one of Ireland’s most sought-after full-time wedding videographers, the favorite choice of celebrities and well known personalities at home and abroad, covering weddings from big to small and everything in between. He was recently chosen by Oscar nominee Naomi Sheridan (daughter of filmmaking legend Jim Sheridan) to film her wedding.

The wedding filmmaker of choice for many film and TV industry pros in Ireland, Richard routinely shoot weddings for other industry professionals, which has lead to him working on various films, documentaries and music videos. He started filming weddings when he was 20, using his filmmaking background to give a shot in the arm to the Irish wedding market, which was badly needed at the time. Now 34, he estimates he’s filmed close to 1,000 weddings.

Richard trained in filmmaking at ‘The New York Film Academy’ (widely recognized as the best film school in the world). He was voted ‘Wedding Videographer of the Year’ by the brides and grooms of Ireland in Ireland’s first ever online wedding awards.

same year, he was also shortlisted for ‘Wedding Videographer of the Year’ at the ‘Weddings Online Awards’. Richard was ranked among “the best videographers in the world” by Martin Rhodes of the ‘DV Awards’, when he won two awards including ‘Outstanding Wedding Videography’. This was the first time that an Irish entrant won in the category of ‘Wedding & Event Videography’.

Bride & Groom Films produces wedding films for discerning clients who value a cinematic experience, but who also just want to enjoy their wedding day with no hassle, and without the feeling that a camera is constantly on top of them.

Richard will shoot your wedding discreetly – so you, your loved ones and guests won’t notice him too much as he works. It's very much a fly-on-the-wall shooting style, capturing natural reactions, without having to pose people or ask them to do anything except enjoy the day. For example, when filming around guests, he uses a small mirrorless camera body, so people are generally less "aware" of the camera in this instance.

A limited number of bookings are taken per year to guarantee that your wedding story is given the full time and dedication it deserves.

Couples often comment on how Richard was able to capture the essence of their wedding day, and still remain almost unnoticed (read the reviews left by many of Richard’s happy couples on the ‘Reviews’ page of his website).

Richard works well with wedding photographers of all styles, and is constantly recommended by them.
