About Me

I'm not a huge fan of talking about myself, but here goes!

I am Toby Sleigh-Johnson, 36 years old and a filmmaker, who currently resides in one of my favourite parts of the world: Greenwich, London, where I live with my loving (and eternally patient-while-I-talk-about-cameras) wife!

I'm have an unquenchable wanderlust: travel is probably my biggest passion alongside filmmaking, so I love that I get to combine the two, travelling to some really interesting corners of the world with my filmmaking.

I began filming weddings full time in 2010 and since then have travelled to many countries and venues documenting some stunning events, and have even had the honour of being chosen to film the weddings of some well known musicians and artists, whose work I greatly respect.

Over the years I have honed my style to one I believe is elegant, timeless and reminiscent of classic cinema, which I love (I have written a blog post about my the films that most influence my style here.

Other than wedding films, I still love making short films, and I also love to document my travels- below are a couple of examples of my most recent projects. The Icelandic film (titled "Snæland") has since been featured in some well known drone publications...

  • Sometimes a job comes along and you know it was suited to your style of work: historical location, strong emotions, a blend of cultures and languages and a couple who were not only so obviously deeply in love, but a pair of very cool cucumbers.  Pearlie and Matias’ attention to detail, in their choice of outfits, locations and wedding design made it very easy for me to create one of my favourite pieces of work to date.

The couple choose the beautiful Museum of the Order of St John for their ceremony, which is a beautiful 16th Century Gatehouse hidden away in Clerkenwell, London. As soon as I saw photos from inside the building I knew I wanted to shoot there!

Pearlie got ready with her bridesmaids at the nearby Zetter Townhouse, which is a stylish boutique hotel, perfectly suited to the couple. The relaxed environment during the morning preparations allowed me to capture some great shots.

Their reception venue was the nearby at St John’s Restaurant, which was an obvious choice for a couple into fine dining!

The whole day was filled with emotion, from Pearlie’s father seeing his daughter in her dress for the first time, through the emotional personal vows (in Spanish and English), a tearful Tea Ceremony and a dramatic Argentinian Tango, which the couple stunned their guests with before the party began. I knew this dance was a big part of the day and something they had been practising for some time, so I felt it should be a key component of their film- not only does it feature heavily, it also influenced the choice of music I used as a soundtrack for their film.

One of the beautiful readings during the ceremony included the line: “We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity – in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern.” This line was a perfect bridge into the evening dancing, which takes the film to it’s end.

  • It's always great to film overseas but sometimes we can forget that we have one of the coolest cities in the world right on our doorstep, inhabited by some very cool cucumbers, like this Singaporean/Argentinian Tango-dancing pair who call London home...
