Frequently Asked Questions
Just take a minute to read these next few paragraphs,We know the difficulties and stresses that go hand in hand with planning a wedding (we’ve been there ourselves). We like to help people wherever we can and we get asked a lot of questions, particularly relating to wedding videography.
At this point, you may not even be sure if you want a wedding video, or if it’s a priority to you at all. Costs can mount up quickly…trust us, we understand.
You’ll be able to re-live and share your wedding day with family and friends, now and into the future. Still photos – while a crucial element for almost every wedding – only convey a single moment. A wedding video on the other hand, records all the detail that is missed, as well as the emotion and joy of the day. The amount of happiness that your wedding DVD will bring you, both immediately and into the future, makes it a must-have for any couple.
We now, more than ever before, have the tools, the initiative and the know how to create stunning wedding films to last a lifetime of memories. Wedding Video has become wedding film, camera-guys have become film-makers, editors have become story-tellers.
If you’re not sure whether or not to get a wedding film think about the looks, sounds, faces, voices, details, colours, movements, textures, songs, kisses, hugs, smiles, laughs, beauty, happiness and love.
Then ask yourself: how will I remember it all? How will my children remember it all?
From there, we daresay you’ll have your answer.
A ‘Highlight film’ condenses the highlights of your day into 3-5 minutes. Examples can be seen here.
A ‘Feature’ edit is essentially a 10-30 minute wedding film, creatively edited to highlight the most memorable moments of your day. In our experience as professional wedding videographers, a traditional ‘Documentary’ style film.
Our goal is to produce a wedding film that you’ll actually want to watch over and over.
We recommend booking for the whole wedding – in the end, it’s better to be safe than sorry – you don’t want to look back and wish that you had captured more of the day.
There may be times when we need to provide a small amount of direction during the course of the day (in much the same way as a photographer would). This is simply to ensure that we capture your day in the best possible way. We keep this to an absolute minimum. A skilled wedding videographer, for the most part, will generally remain unseen at a wedding.
It all depends on how long you get us to film for, Highlights are generally between 3-5 minutes, Feature edits between 10-30 minutes.
We’re more than happy to take suggestions and on your personal copy you can have any music you like. However, due to copyright and legality issues not every song can be used. We’ll advise you on this.
This normally takes between 4-6 weeks but during the busiest periods it can be as long as 12 weeks.
All our filming and videography is done in HD. It looks magical on a HD TV (in our humble opinion).
If this is the case pick up the phone or send us an email. We pride ourselves in tailoring each wedding for our clients
We’re insured and have full public liability insurance.
Yes, please. We are with you for the majority of the day, sometimes from 6am until 2am. That’s not saying we need to sit with your guests nor do we need to eat the same thing as you but food is very much appreciated.
Get in contact with us, via the phone or the contact us page here and we’ll take you through the process.
Of course, we’d say this is a must. The wedding will be a special day in your life. You need to be absolutely comfortable with the people you’ve chosen to capture your day.
We will travel all over the world.. All we ask is that overseas travel expenses and accommodation are paid for.
