Wedding FAQs – The Most Common Questions We Are Asked
If you have a question which isn’t featured in our FAQ below, then please feel free to call or email us to ask!
Why should we have a professional Videographer?
In the words of Dr Seuss ‘You’ll never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory!’
Your wedding day is a magical once in a lifetime day, one that will be over before you realise! One of the biggest regrets after a wedding by couples is not having a videographer, while photos are absolutely beautiful they can’t give you back the emotion in your voice as you say your vows or the raucous laughter from your speeches! However a professional wedding videographer will spend the whole day discreetly capturing every precious moment in order to create an amazing wedding video, one which will let you look back on and relive your special day.
Can we meet before we decide to book you?
When should we book with you?
Where do you cover, and are there any extra charges for travel?
We are based in our home town of Plymouth in Devon, however since I love to travel we cover the whole of the South West and beyond! From Penzance down at the bottom of Cornwall, up to Frome in Somerset – not to mention of course stunning coastline in Dorset.I would also love to start capturing beautiful wedding films up in Wales!
Our packages are all inclusive so there are no hidden extra charges, and we also offer our consultations free of charge!
We have already booked a photographer, how well will you work with them?
We are nervous about being on camera...
We hear this alot, surprisingly most of the time from grooms! We will always go out of our way to make sure you feel at ease with us, we do this by filming the day discreetly and making sure we don’t intrude while maintaining a professional, friendly and helpful attitude. We much prefer to film the day as it naturally happens, no posing or poking our cameras into your faces!
Can we choose our own music for the films?
How long will our films be?
We provide two films with every package, our Highlights of the Day films are around 3-5 minutes depending on the song that is used. however with your Feature Film this can depend on many things such as which package you have chosen, the type of ceremony you have and how long your speeches as these two are the most important and longest moment from your day. On average our Feature Films come in around 40-60 minutes, however Feature Films from our Carnation package will be much shorter – around 15-20 minutes.
How long will it take to get our films?
Can we get all the raw footage that you filmed?
We don’t offer raw footage to our couples as we provide a documentary style Feature Film, this means that on average we give you around 80-90% of what we shoot on the day – taking out any repeated detail shots or shots where a guest might accidentally walk right in front of our cameras (this is because we are so discreet they don’t know we are there!). We also spend many hours editing every single clip that goes into your films, colour correcting and grading to make it look even more beautiful! We also record our audio separately, and again will spend alot of time cleaning up the audio to make sure you can hear every last word as clearly as possible.
