WHY HAVE A VIDEO?

Wedding Videography is something that many people getting married tend to actually think of as an option compared to a ‘must have’ for a Photographer. But a great wedding video with its moving images, soundtrack, and those fun and emotional speeches, can bring the whole day and all of those special feelings flooding back much more than a book of photos ever could.

There is a certain stigma about wedding videos from a few decades ago where videographers turned up with a huge “video”camera, blinding light and microphone on a pole which made every guest weary of the very obvious presence of a camera recording their every move. THEY DO STILL EXIST SO BEWARE WHO YOU BOOK!
Nervous, self conscious guests are never a good thing to watch.

HOW DO YOU FILM DISCRETELY THEN?

The cameras I use are much smaller, and unless pitch black, no blinding light is needed to make everyone squint and look shocked!

Most guests usually think I’m just a photographer due to my main camera looking like a DSLR and then don’t realise they are actually being filmed 🙂

My cameras are also interchangeable lens cameras, meaning that I can get that “cinematic” background blur and high end look compared to many videographers who use fixed lens traditional video cameras. Apart from guests knowing that it’s a video camera, they video they produce can sometimes look like wobbly amateur home movies with a flat and lifeless image in comparison to my cinema camera. I take a lot of care to make sure my footage is nice and smooth and wobble free!

I’m David and I film and edit every event, sometimes with a 2nd camera operator, but usually on my own. I don’t send random people to film you, this means that the style and format of each film is consistent, but at the same time as unique as you and your big day.
his is me and my Cinema camera! It’s small, unobtrusive, looks like a DSLR but gives high quality footage, and having interchangeable lenses means I can get much more of a cinematic look with blurred backgrounds compared to guys who use fixed lens videocameras!

I work with your Photographer, to film the day as it happens, creating an unobtrusive video capturing the parts you may forget just from looking at your photos – the moments in between shots where people think the camera isn’t on them.

I don’t get you to do cheesy pieces to the camera (unless this is what you want, of course), I’ll tell you on the day to just ignore me, I aim to be as discrete as possible when filming, as this yields the most natural results. I love it when you tell me “We hardly even knew that you were there!”

For the main parts (ceremony, speeches & first dance) I use multiple cameras to capture as many angles as I can. This makes a much more dynamic film to watch, flicking between viewpoints, keeping costs low but keeping production values high. Many videographers who use a single camera can’t get more than one angle, especially during the ceremony when you can’t move around, so things can be easily missed! If they do attempt to move during your vows or a speech, there will be a big wobble in your film which can’t be edited out, where I would just cut to another camera!

I film every wedding how I wanted my wedding filmed, and try to capture as many details as I can find to make sure that as much as possible is covered while I am there.

This is my full time job, I’m not a weekender topping up my main 9-5 job with a bit of extra cash, it’s my livelihood, my brand, my business, and it’s your special day, so it HAS to be done right.

OUR UNIQUE MONTAGE WEDDING FILMS

Our Montage films offer the perfect choice between affordability, versatility and watchability.

From experience (and 100% of happy clients!) a traditional video that runs through the whole day for a few hours is too long for most people to watch. So a 15 or 30 minute highlights montage, set to your favourite music, is perfect to re-live your special day again and again, especially with friends and family, without any of the boring dull parts to sit through.

It’s versatile because we film the whole day, so if you decide that you would like the full footage of the ceremony, the speeches, or the first dance, these can be purchased afterwards and added to your DVD/USB as bonus chapters to watch whenever you like.

This helps to keep package prices down, letting you decide what you would like. There is never any pressure from us to purchase any, it’s entirely up to your requirements and your budget.

With the “FULL MONTAGE PACKAGE” you get all of these extras included in the price, and you save almost £80 on them compared to buying them separately!

Our “ULTIMATE MONTAGE PACKAGE” offers even more, with minicams placed on your tables for guests to record their own video messages (so funny to watch back!) Bridal preparations included, and an extra hour of evening footage after your first dance to cover some of the party! But also, you get a cinematic style highlights trailer that is so nice to share online such as Facebook to show to all of your friends and family. This package saves you almost £140 compared to adding these separately too so it’s definitely the ULTIMATE!

MORE DETAILS

The whole day is filmed in full HD with multiple cameras for the main parts of the day to capture every angle, and will aim to include the following if they apply to your wedding:

OUR  PACKAGES

We can offer customised packages from only £399 which are ideal if you want just your ceremony or speeches professionally filmed on multiple cameras and edited for example, or maybe to film your first dance and some evening party footage, just ask!

I like to be upfront with pricing so that you can see for yourself exactly what it will cost to cover your day, simplicity is key for me.

“MINI MONTAGE” PACKAGE – £599 – LIMITED TIME!

This package is the perfect budget conscious solution to capturing and reliving your special day with a high quality wedding film.
It covers from your guests arriving, the ceremony, register signing, confetti, photoshoot & wedding breakfast room detail shots up until your entrance for your meal (we don’t film when you are eating!) and then your speeches, and then into your evening with your cake cut and first dance.

All of this will be edited into a perfect 15-20 minute film set to your choice of music, along with a “Tiny Teaser” to share on Facebook.

The Mini Montage film is based on our “Signature Montage” just a little shorter in length, with a little less of your ceremony and speeches shown.

It runs in chronological order to take you on a journey back though it all, much more than a slideshow of photographs ever could.
It is set to your choice of music to help tell the story of your day, bringing back the happiness and emotion along with it.

You also have the option to purchase full footage of your ceremony, speeches and first dance as extra chapters on your DVD/USB if you would like them (I never try and hard sell these to you, it’s completely up to you if you’d like them, and you have up to 12 months after your wedding to decide on them, even if you have already received your DVD/USB)
These are filmed with a multi-camera setup to cover more angles and create a much more diverse film compared to a single camera angle.

  • Ceremony in full £99
  • Speeches in full £99
  • First Dance in full £79

“SIGNATURE MONTAGE” PACKAGE £799

Our most popular package as it covers every detail, just like our Mini Montage, from guest arrivals at your ceremony venue, all the way up until your first dance.

But with our unique Signature Montage films, you get a much more in-depth beautifully edited film of around 30+ minutes – We believe they are the perfect length to re-live your special day, as a couple or with friends & family, with no boring bits like the old 2hour traditional wedding videos of the past!

Our Signature Montage films are set to your choice of music to help tell the story of your day, but they now also include audio of you both saying your vows/ring exchange as well as clips of your speeches from each speaker, taking you and anyone who watches, right back into you special day.

Again, you also have the option to purchase the full footage of the Ceremony, Speeches &/or First Dance filmed on multiple cameras to cover all angles, as extras on your DVD if they were super special. But if the speeches were a flop, you aren’t paying for something in the package price that you don’t want, saving you money!

  • Ceremony in full £99
  • Speeches in full £99
  • First Dance in full £79

 

“FULL MONTAGE” PACKAGE – £999

Our Full Montage package includes our signature 30 Minute Montage film, covers from bridal preparations (if required) until your first dance, BUT also includes the FULL FOOTAGE filmed on multiple cameras of your Ceremony, Speeches & First Dance, saving you almost £180 compared to adding them all onto the “Signature Montage” package separately.

So if you have already decided that your ceremony is going to reduce everyone to tears, your speeches are going to be as rousing as Winston Churchill’s, and your first dance is going to go viral, (or as most couples just like to have them as a keepsake to watch occasionally), this is the package to go for.

Stephanie & Lee – Signature Montage with Minicams & Bridal Prep (skip to 3:00 to view my footage rather than the minicams 🙂 )

 

“ULTIMATE MONTAGE” PACKAGE – £1199

If you want the ultimate coverage of your day, then this is the package for you.

Covering from Bridal preparations until an hour after your first dance, this really does have it all. You even get the use of our Minicams for your guests to film funny and hopefully meaningful messages during your wedding meal. These are so fun to watch back, especially a few years down the line!

Again, you will get one of our stunning and unique 30 minute Montage films, with every detail of your special day shown on there, set to your choice of music.

Plus the full Ceremony, Speeches, First Dance, all filmed on multiple cameras & Guest messages from your minicams clipped together into a very fun film, as extra chapters on your DVD/USB

If you prefer us not to come and film your preparations, you can use our minicams to film them yourselves at no extra cost. It can give the starting scenes of your film a very personal touch too!
