Sally McDonald Video production of Preston for a huge range of needs: weddings, web video, bands, businesses. We specialise in weddings (we 'capture the day') but many other celebrations are worthy of video capture - anniversaries, birthdays, school nativities...



For those unrepeatable moments in your life


Some moments are unrepeatable, so make sure you remember them - with a professional video from Sally McDonald Video. 

A video captures the sights and sounds that make your event unique - the enjoyment, the excitement and the emotions that can be experienced again and again and relived by future generations. 


Whatever your occasion, Sally McDonald Videos of Preston will be delighted to film it for you

  • Weddings
  • Celebratory parties
  • Anniversaries
  • School nativities and school plays


We capture the essence of your special occasion, whatever the occasion, to give you a treasured keepsake.


School Plays / Pantomimes / Nativities

A brilliant way to show the stars in action on TV! The parents will have a permanent reminder of their child's starring role, and the children can look back on their first steps upon a stage.

School plays are filmed using 2 or 3 cameras to cover different angles with microphones close to the stage to capture sound. 



Promotional material is a key means to securing extra work. It doesn't need to be costly.  One or two tracks, filmed multi-camera, may be all you need to enhance your website and increase your bookings.


Other events

  • Any function can be recorded
  • Musical acts
  • First gallery showings for student artists
  • Congratulatory DVDs


Wedding Video

Your wedding day is so looked forward to and so meticulously planned that sometimes the day itself seems to go by in a blur. That’s the beauty of a wedding video. You have the rest of your life to relive the laughter (and tears), the ceremony and the celebration.


Sally McDonald Videos of Preston capture the emotion, the excitement and the anticipation of your wedding day - your family and friends, the detail of your flowers, your gown, the vows, the rings, the first kiss, champagne, confetti, the speeches, and the first dance.


Our style of filming is naturalistic and we like to capture events as they unfold. We will blend in to your day rather than impose. 


All weddings are filmed using two cameras for the ceremony and speeches. 


Our wedding packages include a personalised boxed DVD of your wedding (playing time depends on the length of ceremony and speeches which are both included in their entirety).


We have three packages to suit every option


Film coverage of the ceremony only

*  the arrivals -  the groom, best man and ushers arriving and their last minute preparations; all your guests arriving and chatting to each other; the arrival of your parents' and bridesmaids; and finally the bride - alighting from the car and the walk into church

*  coverage of the entire ceremony - including signing the register and walking down the aisle

*  filming the guests mingling outside, and the ‘official’ photographs, throwing confetti if permitted. Filming will continue until you drive away from the church or, if a civil venue, will continue until the posed photograph of cutting of the cake, or the meal commences. 



Ceremony and Reception

As well as the ceremony, filming continues at the reception:

*  your guests relaxing and talking, whilst you take this first opportunity to mingle with your friends and family

*  the official line-up, the greeting of all your guests prior to the wedding breakfast, and their welcome applause as you walk in

*  all the speeches - whether long, short, well-rehearsed or ad-libbed

*  the cutting of the cake



Ceremony, Reception and Evening Reception

This all day video covers the evening event as well as the Ceremony and Reception.

*  your first dance together as husband and wife

*  your family, friends and evening guests dancing and enjoying themselves

*  the buffet or evening meal

*  the evening entertainment, usually until 10pm


Optional Extras

*  Old Photographs set to music at the start of your DVD           

*  A shortened 20-30 minute version showing the highlights of your wedding -

   ideal to show work colleagues and friends                   

*  A Black & White SlowMotion sequence to music        

*  A Photo Album of video stills set to music        

*  Additional copies of your DVD                    


My Wedding Philosophy

  • I aim to be unobtrusive. 
  • I am friendly and approachable.
  • I offer a woman's perspective.
  • I take pride in professionalism throughout the day - personally and equipment-wise. 
  • I film 'as it happens'. 


I Promise to

  • ensure you have a video that captures your event with all its formality and fun.
  • personally attend your wedding.  You book me and you get me!
  • attend only your wedding that day.
  • check out unfamiliar locations to ensure smooth running on the day. I will attend your dress rehearsal if diary permits.
  • be discrete, courteous and polite to you and your guests and professional throughout
