Frequently asked Questions

Why should I get a wedding video?
It depends on how important it is to you to have your wedding documented and to be able to re-live and share your wedding day with your family and friends, now and into the future. If it is, a wedding video is one of the best possible ways to capture your special day as well as all the emotion and joy of that day. The amount of happiness that your wedding film will bring you, both immediately and into the future, makes it a must-have for any couple.

Is editing included in the prices?
Editing is included in all packages, this includes montage and color balance.

What is a highlight short film?
All the best moments from your wedding day edited together beautifully in your very own personalised wedding movie. The length of your film will be around 4-10 minutes depending on the footage.

What kind of cameras do you use?
I use two sony mirrorless cameras, the a6500 and  the a6300. Depending on the situation I use a combination of the two cameras with various lenses and either a gimbal, a monopod or a tripod.

How long is the final video?
Depending on the length of your ceremony and the party, the final video usually ends up being between 2 and 5 hours long.  The “short film” is around 4-10 minutes.

Is the video in HD?
All of my video is shot in full 1080p high definition.  You may choose whether or not to receive your DVDs in standard definition or Blu-Ray.

In what form will I receive my video?
You get one digital copy either in a usb stick or uploaded via cloud, but can you can order extra usb, DVD and Blu-Ray if you wish.

How long does it take for the final video to be delivered to me?
Please allow up to 8 weeks for editing in  Busy season (June – September) may take a bit longer.

How much will it cost?
I have wedding videography packages to suit most budgets. The reason I don’t include pricing on my website is because the investment will depend on where your venue is, and exactly what you require. Please get in touch for an obligation-free quote.

Do you offer custom packages?
Absolutely!  I can tailor a package to any budget.  Just give us a call!

Do you require a deposit?
Yes.  I require a 20% deposit to secure your date.  This goes toward your final payment.

What do you do about low light situations?
In general I try to use natural light as long as possible and my cameras have a high tolerance in low light situations, but when it is possible and appropriate, I bring two small led lights that can illuminate a dimly lit alter, dance floor or head table. This ensures that the main events of your wedding, the speeches and the first dances are properly lit.

Can We Choose Our Own Music For The Movie?
Of course! It’s your film so if you have a favourite track then I will definitely use it. However I could also choose a music track that I think will fit the movie. Often this might be instrumental music or a song that I was inspired for your wedding. The aim is to make a film not a pop video so to fit my style some tracks wont work, but we can discuss what music your happy with prior to editing.

How Does The Relationship Between The Photographer And Videographer Work?
Over the years I have worked with various photographers some on repeated occasions and there has never been a problem. If I have a set way I get certain shots I always speak to the photographer before hand to make sure it wont get in the way of his shot and vice-versa. The reason we are there is to capture your wedding the best we can and that will only happen if the photographer and videographer work together with this aim in mind. I’m happy to say over the years this has always been the case

Can We Make Changes?
You can make changes within reason. You have seen my work and you have an idea of what I will produce. However I want it to be perfect for you and if there is a shot you want taking out or adding in etc so I am more than happy to do this to ensure its just right for you.

I need a last minute wedding videographer. Is there any point getting in touch with you? And do you charge more for last minute wedding videography?

Sometimes I have a date free, or receive a cancellation, so I encourage you to get in touch at your earliest convenience. Rest assured, there’s absolutely no extra cost for last minute bookings. I’ll do everything I can to accommodate you.

Do You Offer Photography?
No I don’t. Although I am a photography enthusiast and some times I shoot photos in weddings & Christenings (as an extra) I wouldn’t take the responsibility to cover a whole event my self . However I know some of the best and nicest photographers out there so if you are looking for a photographer I can definitely recommend a great one!

Do You work for free?
It depends. If I don’t have anything else on my schedule and your project/event interests me, I do occasionally work for free. Lots of the projects you see in my  portfolio are free jobs.

How do we proceed?
All you have to do is contact via this page, and let me know what you think.
