The videographer skills and the quality of his or her videos, unfortunately, do vary considerably. Glossy brochures, flashy websites, and impressive-sounding text may turn out to be much more attractive than the video itself! A series of ‘highlights’ samples can also look very captivating on a small screen but again, it leaves you with absolutely no idea of what the actual wedding video will look like.
Another thing to beware of, in recent years new videographers starting out, are filming weddings with small low cost still/video cameras called DSLR cameras. The DSLR cameras can capture some beautiful shots but these cameras have a lot of limitations, e.g. limited recording times and difficult to get good steady shots or shots in focus. A videographer (or cinematographer) who films with a DSLR can only produce a fast pace short version of your wedding mostly only focusing on the bride and groom. You won’t get 2-3 hours of high-quality footage on a Blu-ray.
I capture high-quality footage of the day events, family, and guests with my 2 professional cine Super 35mm cameras. The Blu-ray will include 2-3 hours of edited footage, Outtakes, and a cinematic highlights version.
Booking the highest price cameraman will also not necessarily mean you will be getting the highest quality wedding video because their business could be like an over price bottle of wine (average quality at a high price). Don’t risk it, ALWAYS see a sample of the videographer’s work. Why not make an appointment to see a sample of my work.

Frequently Asked Questions
Your wedding will be the most important day of your life to date so choosing the right suppliers will come with lots of questions. Below are some of the most common questions I get asked. However, if you still have more questions then feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to answer them.
Do You Offer Photography?
No we don’t, however I know some of the best and nicest photographers out there so if you are looking for a photographer I can definitely recommend a great one!
How Does The Relationship Between The Photographer And Videographer Work?
Over the years I have worked with many photographers some on repeated occasions and there has never been a problem. If I have a set way I get certain shots I always speak to the photographer before hand to make sure it won’t get in the way of his shot and vice-versa. The reason we are there is to capture your wedding the best we can and that will only happen if the photographer and videographer work together with this aim in mind. I’m happy to say over the years this has always been the case.
How Do I Book?
Once you have confirmed you want to book I will email you over the booking forms. Read them, fill them out and return them to us along with a £100 deposit.
When Do We Meet?
It’s usually best to have our pre-wedding meeting 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding, the closer the better really as its nice to keep the rapport we build up from the meeting and take that into the wedding so you feel more at ease. We always try to arrange a face to face meeting where ever possible but sometimes due to logistics this may not be possible. In this instance, we can have the next best thing…a Skype chat. If your not comfortable with chatting over the net we can always have the meeting via telephone. The main aim is to get to know each other and to obtain all the info I need so I’m fully prepared for the big day.
When Is The Final Balance Due?
On the wedding day or before.
How Long Does The Video Take To Complete?
It normally takes me 3 to 4 months for the completion your wedding video. It doesn’t take 4 months of actual editing however, as I have filmed a lot of weddings during the year and with each wedding edit taking up to 2 weeks of work I quickly build up a backlog. I don’t rush my editing, I spend the time carefully craft the edit to ensure I create the best wedding video possible, something you will always want to watch and be proud to show your friends and family. It does require patience on your part but I can assure you its worth the wait!
If you can’t wait that long to see your wedding day back you do have the option to purchase the raw footage (all the footage filmed on the day unedited) for £200. This is provided to you on a hard drive and it is the full resolution HD original files. If you add this to the package you will have the hard drive 2 weeks after the wedding.
Can We Choose Our Own Music For The Video?
Of course! It’s your film so if you have a favourite track then we will definitely use it. However we will also choose some music tracks that we think will fit the movie. Often this might be instrumental music we have heard on a recent film we have watched or from our collection. The aim is to make a film not a pop video so to fit our style some tracks wont work, but we can discuss what music your happy with prior to editing.
