What do you look for when booking a wedding videographer?

we are sure you will have your own ideas what you want from your wedding film and we hope we can give some pointers for what to look for:

  • A lot of video business start up and don’t last long as they don’t have the experience. Confirm that the videographer has covered more than just one or two weddings and has some genuine praiseworthy testimonials. We have over twenty years experience and have covered hundreds of weddings. Please see our testimonials page for some recent comments.

  • A much more natural, fluid and complete film can be made using multiple cameras and operators. This allows us to capture multiple angles and to be recording, for example, the bride entering the church at the same time as seeing the groom nervously waiting! Many companies advertise ‘two cameras’ but often there is only one operator who sets up the second camera, statically on a tripod which obviously is much less effective. We always use two operators and multiple cameras to film your wedding.

  • ‘You film we edit?’ There is more to filming a wedding than just picking up a camcorder and zooming in and out. However good the auto-focus there will be times when it is fooled and similarly does an inexperienced operator know how to deal with the back-lit situation which often occurs in a church or during the speeches? Quality can’t be edited into poor footage – both the camerawork and editing need to be good. Please also be sure to compare prices you may find a professional complete service costs not more that a you-film-we-edit service.

Why should I have a wedding video?

So many brides tell us that their wedding day passes in a blur. Your wedding video recorded on DVD or Blu-ray disc will allow you to re-live those special moments, see the things that you missed and let friends and relatives at home and around the world share your special day.

What will be included in our wedding video package?

We always use multiple HD Cameras and two operators to ensure every nuance is captured. All footage is fully edited including titles, montage, credits and DVD menu.

All weddings include three DVDs or Blu-ray (your choice - no extra for HD). All discs are supplied in custom cases.
