FAQS

Q?

Who chooses the music?

A.

For your full film i like to use music related to your day, of course anything you specifically want I can do too.
For your highlights film I like to choose the music style but of course you get the final say.

Q?

Will you need a deposit?

A.

I require a non-refundable £200 deposit at the time of booking to secure your date with the balance to be paid 14 days before the wedding day.

Q?

What areas to do you cover?

A.

I cover all of Essex but are prepared to travel anywhere if the extra costs to me are met.

Q?

Will you clash with the photographer?

A.

No not at all.
One of my biggest compliments is how well I work with them. I am very unobtrusive and a lot of the time you won't know i'm there. The photographer (if you choose to) will be in control of the day and i'll be hovering in the background capturing all the bits you don't know are even happening. The only time i'll stand my ground for best position is during the ceremony and speeches.

Q?

Do we need to feed you?

A.

As all animals I do get quite hungry after a while so i will need something in my belly to help keep me going. Most venues recommend you feed your photographer and videographer but it's no problem if they can't, i'll get Mrs D to make me a packed lunch.
Either way please let me know.

Q?

Do we meet you before the big day?

A.

Yes. I always meet at my home a month or 2 before the big day.
I like to get to know my clients a little bit, it helps me get a feel for the day. We can also go through the entire day in more detail making sure nothing gets missed.
Plus Mrs D makes a good brew.

Q?

Do you have insurance?

A.

Yes I am fully insured through AXA with a videography policy including public liability.
Should you or your venue require a copy please don't hesitate to ask.

Q?

How long does it take you to complete the films?

A.

I aim to do my best to have the highlights film completed within 7 - 10 days while it's still fresh in everyone's mind.
For the full film please allow up to 6 weeks max.

Q?

How will we receive our film?

A.

Your highlights film will be ready first, which i upload online ready for you to share with your friends and family. It's also available for you to download in HD for you to watch on any device, tablet, TV etc.

Your full film along with your highlights film will be supplied in HD on a USB stick ready for you to plug-and-play into your TV. This also allows you to share the film with whoever you like.

I don't supply DVD's as the quality is not good enough these days and not everyone has a Blu-Ray player. With a USB you're not tied down to buying multiple copies of discs for friends and family. Once the film is complete it's yours to do what you want with.

Q?

How long will our film be?

A.

Your highlights film will be 4-6 minutes long.
Your full film can be anywhere between 50 - 120 mins depending on ceremony and speeches.
