DO WE NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
A 25% non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking to secure your wedding date. After this the remaining balance is due 28 days before the wedding.
WHY CHOOSE TWO FILMMAKERS?
Apart from giving you an extra 5-10 minutes of film to enjoy, being in two places at once gives us so much flexibility to get more of the good stuff; reaction shots during the ceremony + speeches, morning preparations across two locations, the last minute rush getting ready and the greeting of guests before the ceremony. Our aim is to help you to remember the bits you did see whilst offering you a glimpse of the bits you missed.
Do you shoot film or digital?
All weddings are filmed digitally, using two small DSLR's and a handful of prime lenses. I do however have two lovely super 8mm cameras, so if you love film as much as I do then I'll happily add some reels in to the mix. Let me know at the time of booking and I'll send you some up-to-date prices.
WILL WE MEET BEFORE THE BIG DAY?
If possible, I would love to meet with you a month or two before-hand. This is close enough for us to run through all the details once the schedule is in place, and is a great opportunity to get to know each other a little so we connect on the day. If a meeting isn't logistically possible then I'll give you a call or a skype and we can discuss it all from the comfort of your own sofa.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE WEDDING?
After the big day I will get to work on editing your films! I edit every wedding myself, and dedicate at least 30 hours to each one. All weddings are edited in the order they were filmed and the delivery date can vary depending on the time year, the number of hours covered, and the duration of your ceremony and speeches. Your film is therefore guaranteed within 6 months, but the average turnaround time is 16 weeks.
Will you include audio snippets from the ceremony or speeches within our trailer?
My films are heavily focused on the detail and the experience throughout the whole day, and this is something that's difficult to put into words. However, I am happy to experiment with different story-telling techniques, so if you do have any special requests or ideas let me know and together we can work out if we're a good fit!
CAN WE CHOOSE OUR OWN MUSIC?
Of course! Music plays a huge role in the crafting of your film, it sets the tone and helps form the basis of the narrative. I love that everybody's preferences are different, so after the wedding I will ask you to send me 5 or 6 tracks that are significant to you, and some of these will be included in your feature. If you would like to share your wedding trailer online, then a licensed song must be used in order to avoid copyright infringement. I will take your preferences in to consideration when choosing one from the catalogue, and will pick one that I feel compliments the footage and reflects the overall vibe of the day.
