CAN I CHOOSE THE MUSIC?
The music soundtrack to your wedding film is such an important choice. Depending on the package, you can choose from 3 to 5 songs for the soundtrack. If you need help, we have a song suggestion list.
WHAT ABOUT COPYRIGHT OF THE MUSIC?
Our prices include the copyright licences needed to produce a wedding film. These are the Limited Manufacturer licence which allows us to film incidental music on the day eg: hymns, disco and band and we also purchase PPL licences for each production, this allows us to dub your favourite music onto parts of the film.
ARE YOU INSURED?
We are covered with both Public liability insurance and Indemnity insurance.
I’D LOVE TO HAVE OUR WEDDING FILMED BUT MY HUSBAND TO BE SAYS HE DOESN’T WANT A CAMERA FOLLOWING HIM AROUND ALL DAY. HOW CAN I CONVINCE HIM?
This is something we hear a lot. However, most of the feedback we get from customers is “We never really knew you were there on the day”.
The truth is, on your wedding day, you will be too busy enjoying yourself to really notice what’s happening outside your immediate circle. The video cameras we use are small enough to be discreet, yet powerful enough to capture everything in pristine HD quality. The cameras have 22 x Zoom lenses which means that much of the fun can be captured from some distance. This means that your guests can relax whilst we still get the shots we need.
HOW LONG WHILE I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY COMPLETED WEDDING VIDEO?
This depends on the time of the year, if your wedding is out of season then it is usually ready for you upon return from your honeymoon. During the peak summer season we do ask that you allow up to 4 weeks. We take great care with each of our productions, with editing taking about 3 full days for each wedding.
HOW LONG WILL MY FINISHED WEDDING FILM BE?
The exact length will depend of the length of your ceremony and speeches. All our packages are FULL LENGTH FEATURE FILMS usually lasting between 60 and 90 minutes. Many companies now only offer short 5 to 20 minute films, so do check what you getting from your videographer.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY WEDDING FILM?
Your wedding will be presented in stunning HD on a USB stick in a presentation box for playing on Smart TV’s etc
I LIKE WHAT I’VE SEEN, HOW DO I PROCEED WITH A BOOKING?
The best way is to make an appointment to meet up with us and we can discuss your day and the options available.
However, as popular dates get booked up very quickly, you can also contact us and request a booking form and pay the £200 deposit by bank transfer.
Once this is paid, your date is secured and we will not accept any further bookings for your date.
