Questions & Answers
Where are you based?
Wedding videographers based in Warwickshire but we film across the West Midlands and beyond.
What is your style of filming?
The style of our wedding videos is 'documentary'. Throughout the day, as videographers we try our best to be unnoticed and out of the way. Enough people will be telling you were to go and when to smile and pose - we avoid all of this. We want to capture genuine moments
of you and you guests having a fantastic time but we are happy to spend time with the bride and groom creating some beautiful
images away from your wedding party. These are still relaxed - we just let you and your partner interact somewhere pretty.
How many people are filming on the day?
Quality is most important when capturing your wedding. To deliver a wedding video with a rich cinematic feel I always use a second videographer and this is included in our package price. We are passionate about the quality of our work and see this as essential. (Many companies will charge £400 extra for this but we include it in the package). Please look at the film page.
How long are you there for on the day?
Usually we start filming a couple of hours before the ceremony and finish one hour after the First Dance but I can tailor to your requirements.
I want my wedding filmed but will all the filming equipment clutter the venue and ruin it for my guests?
The equipment in wedding videography is not like that used in the days of traditional wedding videography. The cameras are nowadays light-weight, microphones are so small they can be hidden in a jacket lapel and for much of the day we can use a small glide-cam device which is very unobtrusive. We try to use natural lighting wherever possible but sometimes we might have to light the speeches. This is just a single light that is often placed in the corner of the room.
I am concerned how I will come across on camera?
Your wedding day is the happiest day of your life. You are surrounded by family and friends and are completely taken care of all day by the wedding venue. Wedding day nerves soon disappear and you will soon be relaxed and this will come across clearly on camera.
What is the finished product?
I produce a Cinematic feature, capturing all the essentials of your day, in a file format that can be viewed on tv or computer and can be readily copied. You also receive a short 6 minute Key Moment film. The films on my website are all the short key moment films. Ceremony, Speeches and First Dance are also included in full. I spend 120 hours on the editing to give you a film you will want to watch over and over. I want to create a film that is visually rich, interesting and constantly moving.
How long till we can see the videos?
I will post the short key moment film online to preview about 5 weeks after the wedding. I will also give you the opportunity to preview the main film around this time. You can preview this on a Flash Drive.
Can I choose my own music for the film?
You can add any music you like. You can either send the tracks via e-mail or via a file transfer website. For the Key Moment film I have to be aware of copyright so will add music which I have paid a license for in the style of the music you have chosen.
Do you do drone filming?
Yes. We do drone filming. Please enquire for more details.
How do I progress with making a booking?
Please send me an e-mail or give me a call to check availability and then we can chat about the day. I require a deposit of £200.
