Between 15 and 25 minutes (usually around 20-22), but remember you'll also get the online trailer (around 3-5 min), the full multi camera edited speeches (anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes!) and the full ceremony excluding church hymns and prayers (around 10-20 minutes).
Although this is rare, even in churches, it is the client’s responsibility to find out if any such restrictions are in place. If so please let us know straight away and we can try our best to work around them.
The time that we will start filming very much depends on the specific timings of your day, but we will generally start filming from 90 mins before the ceremony up until the first dance (No later than 9pm). If there are key moments that you wish to be captured outside of these hours, just let us know.
Good editing takes time and the last thing you would want was for the finished product to be rushed. Although black and white and slow motion effects are mind-numbingly old fashioned and not included in our films, titles are added, each shot is individually colour graded and the whole thing is mixed in full 5.1 surround sound and this takes time. Depending on the time of the year, the finished product is usually ready for you within 6 weeks but at really busy periods it can take up to 12 weeks.
As long as they’re nice, we’re happy. We always get on very well with photographers and soon learn to work well together. After all, we both want the same thing, to make you happy.
Yes. We carry full Public Liability Insurance and have not accidentally demolished a venue yet.
No, but if you don’t there is a chance we may drop down dead during the filming. Wedding days can be very demanding and any food that you provide your photographers and videographers is always greatly appreciated. Your venue will usually offer a reduced rate staff meal (we have no special dietary requirements). However if this is not possible please inform us in advance.
The biggest compliment we have been paid by our clients is ‘We hardly realised you were there’. Discretion is key in the field of wedding videography, especially if you want to capture relaxed footage. We like to let the day unfold naturally letting events blossom without any intervention. We will not dazzle the onlookers with bright lights, or step between the vicar and the couple for an artistic close up shot. We will instead deliver you a creative and professional wedding film whilst leaving you wondering where we were all day…
Extra copies will always available at a cost of £10 for a DVD or £15 for a Blu-Ray or a USB drive.
We cover the whole of Essex as well as Herts, Surrey, Kent, Suffolk, Beds, Bucks. Due to scandalous petrol prices, an additional fee may be applied for weddings outside of Essex.
We require a non-refundable £200 deposit at the time of booking with the balance to be paid 28 days before the wedding day. Payments can be made by online transfer and just in case prices rise between paying your deposit and your balance, you’ll only ever pay the price as it was displayed at the time of booking.
Yes! At no extra cost your wedding DVD or Blu-Ray will feature multiple customised menus with music.
You do. Although we can guide you in what we feel would be the right musical direction, (that is usually the direction that leads you as far away from Celine Dion as possible) music is a very personal thing and we don’t believe in dictating it all for you. We’ll offer you as much or as little guidance as you like. We will also ensure we have the LM and PPL licences (legal gumph) in place to use your music choices and comply with the law.
Sound. Ah, how we love sound. You’d be surprised how many video professionals consider audio as an afterthought. In our eyes (ears) it is equally as important as it’s big boasting brother, the picture. We use wireless tie clip microphones like you might see on TV chat shows during the ceremony and speeches. We then carefully mix this dialogue into the ambient room sound picked up by on camera microphones and portable recorders creating a fully immersive surround sound effect. We pride ourselves on being one of the only wedding videographers in Essex that create their discs in full 5.1 surround sound. This means that if table 2 in the rear right corner laugh hysterically at an embarrassing story during the best man speech, you’ll hear this hysterical laughter in the rear right speaker when watching the disc on your surround sound kit at home. Don’t have a surround sound kit? No problem, you’ll hear it in perfect sounding stereo too!
We realise that a lot of wedding videographers have failed to move with the times and technology and this style can become tiresome and instantly dated. This is something we avoid by filming your day in a creative, concise and discreet way, using top of the range canon DSLR cameras, fast high quality lenses and all of the latest accessories available (We’re not afraid to admit that we’re addicted to buying new ‘stuff’)
