INVESTING IN FOREVER

A Wedding Video is for life, not just for a Wedding

 

So why do you want your wedding day filmed????


I can think of a few reasons for anyone to have their wedding day filmed. Your day will go by so quickly and the memories of the day will fade. Being able to look back and watch those nervous vows or those tender moments that you were too in the moment to remember. Or the thought that family members sadly won’t always be around. What about being able to share your film with your children or one day your grandchildren? A snapshot of your story that will stand the test of time.

Now, why pick ME to film your wedding?????


I want you to enjoy your wedding. I don’t want your special day to represent a film set or to stand between you and your guests. A good videographer knows when to stop filming as much as when to film. I'm incredibly informal and will capture you, your guests and all of the emotions in the moment and the best part is that most of the time, you won’t even know I’m there. I'm more like a guest than a supplier and I want to enjoy your wedding day along with you.


Don’t think about tomorrow or next month, think 10 years down the line. The flowers will unfortunately die. The cake will get eaten and the dress put away. Your wedding is just one day but you will be able to revisit that day as often as you like with your wedding video. It's hard to show the value of something before the fact but as I so often hear and you can see from my reviews, it's the best money my couples had spent on their wedding day and its a piece of their special day that they can cherish forever.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Everything You Want To Know

 

CAN WE BOOK YOUR BASE PACKAGE IF THE WEDDING TAKES PLACE AT MULTIPLE VENUES?

You certainly can. This simply means that I potentially can't capture any of your fiance's prep and I may have to leave you before you're in your stunning dress in order to get to the ceremony venue. We can discuss what's logistically possible upon enquiry.

DO WE NEED TO MEET BEFOREHAND?

This is completely up to yourselves. I love getting to know couples ahead of time but I appreciate its not always possible. Either way it has no affect on your wedding video, it simply means we play guess who upon arrival.

CAN WE UPGRADE OUR PACKAGE/VIDEOS AFTER BOOKING?

Yes you absolutely can! Whether it be budgetary constraints or you simply don't know how long a video you'll want. You can upgrade to the second shooter option (pre wedding) and/or increase the duration of your wedding video EVEN after your big day once your already purchased video has been received. With regard to the second shooter it's subject to availability.

WHAT'S THE BENEFIT OF A SECOND SHOOTER?

I've been filming weddings solo for years and whilst I'm absolutely capable of doing so, as a solo shooter there are times when I can't be in two places at once. Yes I shoot with multiple cameras but it isn't possible to guarantee your partners reaction during the ceremony or even that someone hasn't obscured the view. A second shooter also allows dedicated footage of your partner during prep and a wealth of extra footage to what I can capture alone.

WHAT IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND?

If for whatever reason I was suddenly unable to attend your wedding day (it would take a lot to not get me there) I would do my very best to supply you with someone of equal standard and character. If this isn't possible I would refund all monies paid as per contracted agreement.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yes I am fully insured for personal and public liability.

HOW LONG ARE YOU WITH US ON THE DAY?

As standard I/we arrive 3 hours before the ceremony and stay shortly into the dancing. Extra hours can be purchased upon request.

WE HATE BEING IN FRONT OF A CAMERA

Who doesn't? I often say within 10 minutes of us being there you won't care anymore. We carry small cameras similar to stills cameras so they're not in your face. The majority of the time were filming from the far side of the room without your knowledge and during your couples shoot with the photographer we tend to let them direct whilst we capture candidly in the background.

YOU'RE THERE ALL DAY, WHY IS THE VIDEO SO SHORT?

Our goal is to create an emotional film for you to enjoy throughout. A blockbuster movie is typically 2hrs long and they film for months. We have about 12 hours and from that we want to create the best video we can for you. If like me you suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out) you can always purchase the full documentary edit.

WHAT IS A DOCUMENTARY EDIT?

A documentary film is created from every useable shot taken on your wedding day including the full ceremony and speeches in linear form. Similar to that of a traditional wedding video. It's certainly not as polished and entertaining as the highlight and extended film but it's perfect for future preservation of the memories.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE VIDEO BACK?

Peak season it can take up to 12 weeks to return your wedding video and I will keep you updated along the way. I also offer an express turnaround should you need it sooner

CAN WE PICK THE MUSIC FOR THE VIDEO?

I will select a music score that supports your wedding film as this best expresses the emotions and helps the film to remain timeless.

CAN I REVIEW THE VIDEO BEFORE IT’S FINALISED?

I'll always send you the film first and check to make sure it's ok to share publicly. The biggest part of my advertising is through word of mouth of sharing your lovely films so I do hope it's ok with you. In terms of alterations I'll always amend any technicalities but creative control stays with me.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOUR SERVICES?

I get booked typically 1-2 years in advance and I only take on select number of weddings a year. Please don't hesitate to get in touch to avoid disappointment.
