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.
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'
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.
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.

An Award for Mary's Dowry Productions
In October 2010, Emily Jane Bevans and Bernadette Bevans were awarded 'Catholic Women of the Year' 2010 and presented with certificates by Archbishop Vincent Nichols at a special Luncheon held near Marble Arch, London. The event first began in 1969 to 'pay tribute to Catholic women who give outstanding service to the Church'. Emily and Bernadette received the award for founding Mary's Dowry Productions and for producing films promoting the lives and witnesses of the Saints and Martyrs of the Catholic Church. Pope Benedict XVI sent a special message and his apostolic blessing to the winners.
