No problems at all. We will always allow the photographer to take the lead in organising the shots that he or she requires. Stills are not so important to us and as we generally film from a far greater distance we generally don’t get in the way. We are also very friendly!
Do I have to provide the videographer with a meal?
You are not obliged to purchase a meal for the videographer - however we will be with you for the entire day through to late and therefore light refreshment (tea / coffee and sandwiches) would be appreciated. It is advisable to negotiate this with the venue as many will provide "contractors" meals at zero cost to the couple.
Do you hold insurance?
As professional videographers we hold full insurance and will provide you full details of the same to provide to your venue. Insurance includes DRONE, PUBLIC LIABILTY AND PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY
Do you have a COVID guarantee?
A COVID Guarantee is included in our packages at the moment. Our full contract will outline this in detail.
Do you have a formal contract?
Yes a formal contract will be issued to you prior to any retainer being paid. Only once we both sign will any fees become payable. The contract outlines the price you will pay and the services that have been agreed.
How do I book?
Simply contact us with the date of your big day. We will send out a full Wedding contract and a couple’s questionnaire which can be signed digitally. Once we have these returned, we will request a £200 retainer which will hold your date. The retainer offsets your final balance which will become due around four weeks prior to your day.
Can you see samples of your work?
We'd love you to - we are proud of what we do. Example films are available from the link below.
Your films will be delivered digitally and a bespoke USB will be forwarded to the address given to us.
How long will my film be?
If you have ordered the Highlight and Teaser Package, they will be a between 5 - 8 minutes for the highlight and 1 minute for the teaser. Extended cuts are dependent on the length of the service OR speeches. In general, though this will normally be upwards of 40 minutes plus.
How soon after the wedding will I get my film?
Throughout the wedding season during the spring and summer months we are normally busy. We aim to get your highlight video to you within 12 weeks and the full film in 6 months although we often deliver earlier. This may be extended in busy periods however we will be upfront with you on booking.
Quality is important to us and we would always prefer to make sure your wedding film is perfect. We fully understand that you will be longing to see the finished film however COVID has increased our workload considerably throughout 2020/ 2021 and 2022.
I want to use a popular chart song in my film is this allowed?

There are aspects of filming that I feel uncomfortable with how do you deal with that?
Just let us know - we are so used to dealing with couples and fully understand that some may feel nervous or worried about being filmed. We will ensure that you are relaxed and we will work together to record those magical moments.
Will you capture everything?

Sometimes there will be circumstances out of our control that may restrict or hamper filming i.e. Outside venue with Roadworks nearby OR heavy rain.
