Frequently Asked Questions

How long do your films run for?

Your full length film will be around 20 minutes long (or 10 minutes if you choose the documentary package), 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 (around 10-20 minutes).

What happens if you can’t make it on the day due to illness?

In nearly two decades this has never been the case, however, if the unthinkable were to happen, I have an excellent team of second shooters that I have trusted to film my own family and friend's weddings and I can bring them in to film the wedding for me.

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 2-3 hours before the ceremony up until the first dance and a little bit afterwards too. 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 is very time consuming and the last thing you would want was for the finished product to be rushed. Titles are added, each shot is individually colour graded and the whole thing is sound mixed and this takes time. Depending on the time of the year, the finished product will usually be ready anywhere between 2 and 10 weeks from your wedding.

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?

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.

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 mainly shoot in Essex, however we can cover Herts, Surrey, Kent, Suffolk, Beds, Bucks and even abroad. 

Will you require a deposit?

We require a non-refundable £500 deposit at the time of booking with the balance to be paid one month before the wedding day.

Who picks the music?

For the most part, 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! Having said that we are more than happy to take guidance or specific song requests from our clients and we will try to use them if we feel they suit the overall feel of the wedding film. 

 

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. 

Do you have a drone?

I do! I don't charge any extra for drone footage but it is weather dependant. As long as there's no rain and wind isn't too high on the day I'll usually nip out whilst guests are eating their wedding breakfast and get some lovely establishing shots of the venue from the air. I like to be as discreet in the air as I am from the ground so no flying the drone over you as you walk up the aisle or getting that cheesey shot of all of the guests waving up at it! 

How do I know if I need a 2nd Camera Operator?

Feel free to get in touch to discuss this as it is often dependant on the logistics of your wedding however if you are both getting ready at different locations, you have 120+ guests or you have a church ceremony then it might be bnefitial (but not essential) to add on a second camera operator.

How will you work with my photographer?

I like to be as discreet and unobtrusive as possible during the wedding day so it's important to me that you are not asked to go on two seperate couple portraits sessions, one for me and one for the photographer.

Instead, it is important that the photographer and I work as a team. I will tag along with them (if they don't mind!) during these couple portraits, hanging back behind their camera to keep out of their way.

Generally speaking I will let the action unfold naturally without any need to intervene or give direction. 

Do you visit the venue ahead of the wedding day?

Almost all of my weddings are at venues I've been to several times before, however if the venue is new to me then I will always arrive with plenty of time to have a full walk around and familiarise myself with the venue and chat to the staff before the day begins.
