–  UNDERSTATED ELEGANCE –

I’m Richard, wedding filmmaker. I’m recently single, have an incredible 12 year old son and a legend of a dog, my 3 yr old Golden Doodle Danny.

I have shot nearly 400 weddings now, with the best photographers, in the best and most interesting venues, and I think I’m producing the most creative and technically proficient work of my life in 2021.

It’s taken a few years to get here, but I’ve always tried to strive to have a business based on strong values and an ethos of customer service. I don’t and won’t always succeed but I really try! The main thing I push for is a strong commitment to both beautifully shot films and precious family moments captured forever. I always believe that I’m only a conduit for my couples’ style and personality, and I try to mould myself into the day, the atmosphere and the mood, and be chatty, or quiet, supportive, helpful and always calm. Contemplating life through the shockwave of Covid, I need to have quality time with my son and family’s am reducing the number of bookings I take per year.

I want to work with couples who really want to work with me and who are heavily invested not just financially but also in helping me make a family document that will literally last forever.

ENQUIRE

Richard Speedie

Richard has one son David who is nearly thirteen and a magnificent Golden Doodle called Danny. I live in Clonsilla, West Dublin and when not shooting and editing wedding and corporate video, I enjoy playing the piano and doing a bit of cooking. I was lucky enough to be a contestant on Masterchef Ireland in 2011 and learnt so much about the food industry during that process. I also played keyboards professionally for many years, including over 10 years playing in wedding bands. So, weddings are in my DNA at this stage.

Rory Sinnott

Rory is from Dublin has a lead shooter and editor at Bigday since 2018. He’s shot so many weddings with me I’ve lost count and for the last 2 to 3 years he was shooting weddings for  me on his own under the Bigday brand. He set up his own wedding video brand, www.heartlandfilms.ie before Covid and I wish him nothing but success. He’ll continue to shoot his final weddings for Bigday this year, very kindly helping me with double dates, as I strived to reschedule over 12o weddings due to Covid. I highly recommend him and if you can’t get me, then get him!
