Wedding Videography FAQ's
Your head may be buzzing with questions and I hope I can answer some of them here. The main thing to remember is that each of my wedding films are individual to you. If you want to have a chat, give me a shout and lets talk
WHAT ARE TRAILER, HIGHLIGHT & FEATURE FILMS & CAN I HAVE ALL THREE?
You can have whatever combination of films you like. Contact me for a tailored quote.
Trailer films are very short 1 minute films that are a teaser for your wedding film, a bit like film trailers that you see in the cinema. They are great for sharing on social media. Watch one HERE
Highlight films are my most popular films. They are a carefully edited 3-5 minute film which covers the whole day, set to music and edited in such a way as to be amazing to watch, they will have you laugh, cry, reminisce and much more. Watch one HERE
Feature films are a longer version of the day, with key events shown in real time. The whole ceremony, all the speeches, the first dance & anything else you want captured in full will be in this film meaning that when you have the time to sit down and watch a 45 minute plus film, then nothing is left out. Original music and sound are left on feature films as they will not be shared online. If you would like to see an example of a Feature film, please get in touch.
HOW DO WE BOOK?
Just drop me a message via the contact form and we can get started from there. We will have a chat, via email, or on the phone, whatever is best for you. Then we work out what you would like, agree a price and I'll then send a contract for you to check over and sign digitally along with a wedding questionnaire which helps me to start to get to know you and what you like.
A non-refundable booking deposit of £250 and the signed contract will be required to secure your date. Payment in full of the balance will be required one calendar month before the Wedding Day.
HOW SOON AFTER THE WEDDING WILL WE RECEIVE OUR FILM?
Trailer films are delivered 1 week from your wedding date, just the right time to banish those wedding blues and to give you a taster of what's to come.
Highlight films can take approximately 8-12 weeks from your wedding date at busy times
The long feature film (if you have chosen one) can take approximately 8-12 weeks from your wedding date at busy times.
I always aim to deliver films as soon as I can. The times mentioned above are the worst case scenarios
WHAT MUSIC CAN WE HAVE?
The music that I use to accompany both your trailer film and your highlights film I will choose for you, based on me having got to know you, your personalities and your likes and dislikes. Employing me as your film maker is also trusting me to create a film which captures the emotion and feel of the day and choosing the music to accompany that, is part of the artistic vision that you have asked me to provide.
It is very important for you to understand that for films that will be shared online (ie your trailer & highlights film) that all music I use, must be licenced.
I am totally flexible on the genre/mood of music you wish to have, your input is important! I can send my licenced music library for you to have a listen to when you have time.
Your feature film can contain any song as this will not be public on the Internet but shared privately via your password protected video download link.
The licencing of all music I use, is included in the price quoted for creating your wedding film package.
HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR FILM/S?
Once complete and as they become ready, your film or films will be sent to you via an online secure link using our state of the art digital download platform. The films can be downloaded from the link and you are also able to share them with whoever you wish! We always recommend you download your films to your own device for safe storage. We will also hold a master copy both locally and on the cloud.
WE DON'T WANT BRIDE PREP, WE WANT GROOM PREP OR THERE ARE TWO BRIDES OR TWO GROOMS
That’s just fine, we will have discussed in detail exactly what you want and don’t want filmed in plenty of time before the wedding. We will have worked out if there is time for me to visit two locations and who you want filmed and where! I am always open to ideas and love to hear your input.
WILL THE FULL CEREMONY AND SPEECHES BE INCLUDED IN OUR FILM?
If you opt for having a full length feature then yes they will!. A feature film will include the ceremony, speeches, first dance and anything else we have agreed in full, allowing you to relive every detail should you wish to do so.
The trailer film and the highlight film will not include the ceremony and speeches in full, but will have sections of both.
The highlight film is the most popular generally due to its length and the way it has been edited, meaning that the whole day is shown in one film of about 3-5 minutes easy and entertaining to watch and tugging on every emotion.
That's alot of information!
Well done for making it this far! That's a lot of information to take in! Remember, its all a guide, if you have something in mind, different, wacky, weird, wonderful or just plain stupid, give me a shout! I love to push the boundaries and do different stuff!
