How Do You Work?
Upon deciding you are interested in a booking and subject to where you live I would be delighted to meet you and your partner to talk about what I do, how I do it and find out a bit about you both. After the booking and a couple of months before your wedding day, I’ll email over a set of standardised questions to best prepare me for filming the day and editing your film/s together. On the wedding day and subject to which package you chose I will aim to discreetly film and capture as much of the day’s events and details as I feel necessary to create a well-covered and entertaining edit.
What will the duration of my cinematic film be?
The main film can be long form (usually between 1-2 hours in duration subject to the length of the speeches and ceremony) or short form (approx. 30 minutes highlights) with separate ceremony and speeches videos. The films are made up of a series of sequence montages (shots with music) such as bride and groom getting ready, after ceremony celebrations and the evening party. If you choose the highlights trailer these can be 3-6 minutes in duration and will be included on your chosen output options of a USB stick, online hosting, DVDs or Blu-Ray disc.
How long will you be with us on the day?
This depends on which film package you choose – please see the ‘Film Packages’ section to see the options on how much coverage is included with each package. We do not have any specific time restrictions for when filming starts or ends, nor will we charge you anymore if things overrun on the day. We simply film as much as we need to provide you with great films.
What's included in the packages?
Again this depends on which film package you choose as it is customisable depending on your budget and desires – please see the ‘Pricing’ section to see the options. The base package will provide you with a main film (you can choose a long form or short form main film) and can upgrade the package to include highlights trailer if you wish. If you would like something other than one the options shown I can quote for a completely customised package for your interest. Please let me know what you’d like via the enquiry form below.
How long does it take before I get the finished wedding films?
Do I have to let the venue/s know I have a videographer?
Can you work alongside a photographer?
My venue requires suppliers to have insurance, do you have this?
Do you require food on our wedding day?
Can I order extra copies of my DVD, Blu-Ray or USB sticks?
How do I pay and do you require a deposit payment?
How is the film presented?
All packages (unless completely customised) will provide you with a combination of either 2 x DVD’s, 1 x Blu-ray disc, USB stick or online hosting. Each of the DVD, BluRay discs and online hosting will have been professionally authored to have fully selectable menus with chapters, highlights trailer, personalised images and include music from your own wedding day.
