Mary's Dowry Productions  makes original documentaries and films on the lives of well known and little known English Martyrs and Saints.  These are made available worldwide on DVD for anyone else who may be interested in learning about these Saints.
We were founded with the intention of making original films that include historical facts and imagery, scenery, art and the richness of the Catholic Faith in the Saints and Martyrs.

Our main focus is mainly upon the lives of the Forty Martys of England and Wales.


Mary's Dowry Productions was founded in 2007 by Emily Jane Bevans and Bernadette Bevans.  We are a family run Catholic film production company based in the South of the United Kingdom.

The name ' Mary's Dowry Productions' .

Mary's Dowry was once the name used to refer to England.  King Edward the Confessor traditionally gave England to Our Lady in 1061 and this consecration was renewed by King Richard II in 1381.  The devotion of the English Catholics to Our Lady and the Roman Catholic spirituality of the English people was renowned for centuries.

We chose  'Mary's Dowry'  as the name of our company due to our location in England and our love of Our Lady.   

About Mary's Dowry Productions

The films produced by Mary's Dowry Productions are thoroughly researched and rich with Catholic devotion, historical details, biographical accounts, facts and imagery. 

Our individual film on a particular Saint is sometimes told from the Saint's point of view.  All of our work is produced in-house. 

Our short and detailed films giving an accurate and spiritual account of each Saint are available on DVD worldwide through our online shop.  As sole producers and distributors we are a specialist film company that only allow a small selection of trade customers of our original films.



We have used our own time and money to produce our films which began as a small family project and from a personal desire to see biographical presentations of Martyrs and Saints that included their devotional aspects as well as historical context and details in film. 
We are pleased to be able to share these films with all who have taken an interest in Mary's Dowry Productions by making them available on DVD. 
We have our own online secure shop where our films can be purchased on excellent quality DVD.  The DVDS are available in all region formats and are shipped out quickly in secure packaging.  We accept payment for these films by credit card, debit card or by using Paypal.  Our online shop is easy to use and is found throughout our website.  Our productions are also available through AMAZON UK and AMAZON COM.

Our logo is the right inside panel of the Wilton Diptych.  This we chose as it has a great significance to England under the banner of Our Lady's Dowry.
