Your wedding day will be filmed in stunning High Definition 4K or 6K with professional quality audio. Powerhouse Videos will capture every magical moment as the day unfolds: the looks, smiles and happy tears. Our professional wedding videographer(s) will make sure that everything you'd love to see featured in your wedding film is included and that you feel comfortable and confident with the whole process.
At Powerhouse we believe that all of our wedding videography clients are important. Every couple will get the premium Powerhouse award winning service. We want to capture on film the whole of your special day as a treasured keepsake for a lifetime together. The story of your wedding will feature all the key moments, from early preparations and the gathering of guests right through to the ceremony, wedding breakfast, evening reception and first dance. We can provide a wedding videographer across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Hampshire in fact the whole of the UK.
Wedding film styles vary and often follow fashions. At Powerhouse we have a distinctively natural, modern and romantic look to all of our video’s and we favour vibrant colours rather than the washed-out effect many videographers are currently using. We like to capture guests talking, laughing and enjoying the day naturally without even realising they're being filmed. We also love using specialist cameras and technology to create beautiful cinematic moments featuring our newly married couples. Please take a look at our video gallery for examples. We are passionate about filming weddings and love what we do at Powerhouse, which we believe shines through in every one of our videos.
We film using professional Panasonic cameras, all of which are capable of filming to Ultra High Definition 4K or 6K. We take a range of cameras, high quality sound recorders and back-up equipment to every wedding, ensuring that every moment of your day is captured.
Frequently asked questions
How do I book?
A: 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.
When do I have to pay?
A: Payment for all retainers will be due on signing the contract. Balance payments will be due 28 days prior to the wedding.
How long will my film be?
A: If you have ordered the Highlight and Teaser Package, they will be a minimum of 10 minutes for the highlight and 1 minute for the teaser. Full ceremony /Speech add on’s are dependent on the length of the service OR speeches. In general, though this will normally be upwards of 40 minutes plus.
Will you capture everything?
A: We will certainly do our level best to cover every part of your wedding day. 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. We will liaise with you on the day to provide alternatives to make your film a little more special. Please note that throughout the winter filming hours externally may be reduced due to the light.
Do you hold insurance?
A: As professional videographers we hold full insurance and will provide you full details of the same to provide to your venue.
Is it possible to remove some of the full package to reduce the price?
A: Possibly - it depends on the dates and the budget. We can always look to reduce the time spent on site or the production time but please contact us with your budget clearly stated and we will look to work with you to tailor-make your package where possible.
Can you work with a photographer?
A: 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!
Will I have a say in how I want the film to look?
A: Of course! We really do want our couples to get involved in the planning stages. If you have any special requests, we want to hear from you.
How soon after the wedding will I get my film?
A: 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 17 weeks very often we deliver earlier. This may be extended but we will always keep you informed of any delay. Quality is important to us and we would always prefer to make sure your wedding film is perfect.
Can we be sure that we get a Professional Wedding Videographer?
A: Of course! From the outset you'll have the direct line of the full time, professional videographer who will be filming your wedding. We are fully insured holding both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity.
Can you see samples of your work?
A: We'd love you to - we are proud of what we do. Examples of our highlight films can be viewed via the link below:
Wedding Film Gallery
What would you wear at our wedding?
A: When we're filming, we need to be able to move easily and cram into some tight corners, so it's not always practical to wear a full formal suit. However, it's a special occasion so you can rest assured we will dress smartly - no jeans, t-shirts or flip-flops!
Do I have to provide the videographer with a meal?
A: You are not obligated 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.
We are also on Facebook so you can chat with us live if you would like additional information.
