FAQS

Q?

What is the Full Feature Film?

A.

The full feature film captures your entire day.
The main parts of the day including the ceremony, speeches, cake cutting and first dance are in full. All the bits in between like morning preparations, guests arriving, mingling, photo shoots, dancing etc etc will be in snippets (similar to the highlights film) laid to music to match your day. Most full feature films last 45-75 mins depending on speech times.

Q?

How long are you with us on the day?

A.

I don't really have set working hours as every wedding is different.
The maximum time is 9 hours from start to finish, this is always more than enough.
I like to arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony time to film bridal prep, the venue being set-up etc.
I guarantee to be with you until after the first dance. I like to stay for a little longer if the dance floor is busy to get some boogie action. I normally pack up after 2-3 songs after the first dance.
Once i'm happy I have enough great footage to make you an amazing film i'll come and find you and say my goodbye's.

Q?

Do you keep a copy of our film?

A.

Yes, after you film is completed it gets backed up online. If you need another copy for any reason I can send you a link to download your films.
After 2 years the build files get deleted but the final film files are kept online.

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. A meal/snack would be very much appreciated but it's no problem if not.

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.

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 10 - 14 days while it's still fresh in everyone's mind.
For the full feature film please allow up to 6-8 weeks max.

Q?

How will we receive our film?

A.

Your highlights film will be ready first (if you choose to have one), which I upload online ready for you to share with your friends and family.
Your full feature film along with your highlights film will be presented on a custom USB ready to plug and play.

Q?

How long will our film be?

A.

Your highlights film will be 4-6 minutes long.
Your full feature film can be anywhere between 45 - 90 mins depending on ceremony and speeches.
