Frequently Asked Questions

How long do your films run for?

Between 15 and 20 minutes (usually around to 20), but remember you'll also get the online trailer (around 3-5 min), the full multi camera edited speeches (anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes!) and the full ceremony excluding church hymns and prayers (around 10-20 minutes).

What if the venue for my wedding has restrictions on filming?

Although this is rare, even in churches, it is the client’s responsibility to find out if any such restrictions are in place. If so please let us know straight away and we can try our best to work around them.

How long will you be with us on the day?

The time that we will start filming very much depends on the specific timings of your day, but we will generally start filming from 90 mins before the ceremony up until the first dance (No later than 9pm). If there are key moments that you wish to be captured outside of these hours, just let us know.

How long does it take to edit the film?

Good editing takes time and the last thing you would want was for the finished product to be rushed. Although black and white and slow motion effects are mind-numbingly old fashioned and not included in our films, titles are added, each shot is individually colour graded and the whole thing is mixed in full 5.1 surround sound and this takes time. Depending on the time of the year, the finished product is usually ready for you within 6 weeks but at really busy periods it can take up to 16 weeks. *update: due to the pandemic, expected wait times for 2021 weddings is expected to be significantly longer than usual but rest assured we will be working around the clock to keep this wait to a minimum for you.*

Won’t there be a problem between the videographer and the photographer?

As long as they’re nice, we’re happy. We always get on very well with photographers and soon learn to work well together. After all, we both want the same thing, to make you happy.

My venue requires my suppliers to have Insurance, do you have this?

Yes. We carry full Public Liability Insurance and have not accidentally demolished a venue yet. 

Do I have to supply food for you?

No, but if you don’t there is a chance we may drop down dead during the filming. Wedding days can be very demanding and any food that you provide your photographers and videographers is always greatly appreciated. Your venue will usually offer a reduced rate staff meal (we have no special dietary requirements). However if this is not possible please inform us in advance.

Do you offer 4K filming?

Yes! And from 2023 onwards this is no longer a additional cost for this. All weddings from 2023 onwards will be filmed in 4k!

Won’t a video camera get in the way?

The biggest compliment we have been paid by our clients is ‘We hardly realised you were there’. Discretion is key in the field of wedding videography, especially if you want to capture relaxed footage. We like to let the day unfold naturally letting events blossom without any intervention. We will not dazzle the onlookers with bright lights, or step between the vicar and the couple for an artistic close up shot. We will instead deliver you a creative and professional wedding film whilst leaving you wondering where we were all day…

What areas do you cover?

We cover the whole of Essex as well as Herts, Surrey, Kent, Suffolk, Beds, Bucks. Due to scandalous petrol prices, an additional fee may be applied for weddings outside of Essex.

Will you require a deposit?

We require a non-refundable £500 deposit at the time of booking with the balance to be paid 28 days before the wedding day. Payments can be made by online transfer and just in case prices rise between paying your deposit and your balance, you’ll only ever pay the price as it was displayed at the time of booking.

Who picks the music?

We do! In order to comply with copyright law we will carefully select copyright free music like those you will have heard accompanying our trailers online. We hope you agree that these songs perfectly accompany the action whilst remaining barely noticeable, as any good soundtrack should be!



What about sound? How does that sound?

Sound. Ah, how we love sound. You’d be surprised how many video professionals consider audio as an afterthought. In our eyes (ears) it is equally as important as it’s big boasting brother, the picture. We use wireless tie clip microphones like you might see on TV chat shows during the ceremony and speeches. We then carefully mix this dialogue into the ambient room sound picked up by on camera microphones and portable recorders creating a fully immersive surround sound effect. We pride ourselves on being one of the only wedding videographers in Essex that create their films in full 5.1 surround sound. Don’t have a surround sound kit? No problem, you’ll hear it in perfect sounding stereo too!

What makes you different to your competitors?

We realise that a lot of wedding videographers have failed to move with the times and technology and this style can become tiresome and instantly dated. This is something we avoid by filming your day in a creative, concise and discreet way, using top of the range mirrorless Sony cameras, fast high quality lenses and all of the latest accessories available (We’re not afraid to admit that we’re addicted to buying new ‘stuff’)
