Is Videography your full time job?
Yes, as it
takes some considerable time to produce a high quality video production, plus
there is the video sleeves & labels, and the customer service, visits,
Can we view a wedding DVD sample?*
believe in complete client confidentiality and do not send out full wedding DVD
Companies that send out sample DVD's tend to only send out the very best clips
that they have available or it could be the only wedding they have filmed. There
is no guarantee that your finished DVD will look like the one you viewed, each
wedding is so individual. When you arrange a meeting with us you are welcome to
pick any wedding off the shelf that have been accepted by previous clients.
How many hours does it take to produce Video?
It takes anywhere from 30-60 hours to complete.
How long will I have to
wait for my Video?
The video is normally ready within two
weeks, but please allow 4 weeks.
Do you carry spare
equipment on the day?
Yes, we carry spare camera, tape, lights and
Will you be filming my wedding ?
will be me, unless otherwise agreed or stated, I do not use other operators* as I pride myself on my personal
service and friendly manner.
Do you hold the necessary insurances ?
Yes, I hold
the Public Liability and Indemnity Insurance.
Will you attend the church rehearsal ?
If required and the church is local I will
always attend if possible, but it is subject to work commitments.
Do you hold legal licenses
to enable you to record the ceremony and hymns in
a church/registry, and to add
music tracks onto the completed video ?
Yes, we hold the appropriate licenses
MCPS & the
these are the equivalent as the CCLI licence on the
Do you move around during the service?
always use a tripod and do not move around the church (most vicars
or priests wonít allow it anyway). ( if my shot is being obscured then I may
move slightly to re-frame the shot)
Do you use lighting at the service?
normally, as again this is not always allowed during the service and can
distract, I do use some limited lighting for the speeches latter in the day as
the natural light is fading.
If I send original photographs & CD's to you
will they be returned ?
Yes, all original material sent to us
will be returned.
How do we contact you once the deposit is paid ?
You may contact me anytime, using
E-mail or phone. I will contact you I month
before the wedding to remind you of the items I require to produce your video.
There is also a dedicated help page for clients who have booked.
Do you set up any shots ?
& Yes, this all depends on how you want your video to be. Some like to be
involved in the video as you can see on some of the film clips, others prefer
the traditional style video.
Apart from the Twirly Shot &
Interviews (if requested) I normally recommend. When I say our goodbyes to the
bride, groom & wedding party, most of them say they havenít noticed me all day!

Can we order extra copies
after the wedding ?
Yes, you can order extra copies of the
Video after the Wedding.
there different types of DVD & Menus?
There are two types
of DVD, the DVD+R and the DVD-R, which is the recognised standard, I use the
DVD-R standard. The Wedding DVD is produced on an authoring package, with professional
menus and chapters to help you get to the main points in the video quickly. It
takes longer to produce these menus on the authoring program as opposed to some
who record the video onto a DVD Recorder.
