Have a question?

Below are some of our most common questions. If you have a question about anything else, please get in touch.

How to Book

We are London based but film weddings in all UK counties (Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Middlesex, Surrey, Sussex) nationwide and abroad. For weddings outside of Greater London travel charges may apply – please ask for details.

Should you decide to go ahead all you need is a wedding video booking form, I will email this simple document to you, and once it is returned along with the holding deposit your wedding date will be reserved for you.

Please note – all dates remain open to other bookings until we confirm receipt of the booking form and holding deposit.

Please do check with your wedding venue that they allow filming of the service – some may make a charge. We require access to the wedding venue a minimum of 2 hours prior to the ceremony start time. Where drone filming has been booked, please do check with your venues that they will grant permission. We are approved by the CAA and are fully insured, but aerial filming can only take place where we have the prior permission of the venue.

Why choose you to video my wedding?

A wedding film can be produced in variety of ways. We focus our attention on capturing people’s emotions and the atmosphere of the day. Therefore, we don’t employ cheesy video effects and unneeded text in our videos. Our filming is cinematic in that we don’t stand around and exclusively record from a shoulder-mounted camera perspective, but through creative experience focus on the smaller details and combine this elegantly with the larger picture. The result: a truly cinematic film, with a variety of tempo that will entertain as well as bring back all those memories of the happiest day of your life!

Wedding Video Price Jungle?

There is a price divide. Some companies offer low prices but can’t compete on film quality. Our prices reflect the extra experience, equipment, time and skill needed for a professional cinematic wedding video.

What Cameras do you use?

Our primary cameras are all 4K Canon C70s. In addition the lenses we use are of the highest quality – all L series including a full range of primes for beautiful shallow depth of field.

Do you offer 4K Filming?

As an option we can film your wedding in stunning 4K which is the highest quality currently available with four times the pixel resolution of HD, and looks exceptional whether watching on your mobile or large screen television. In addition we use advanced post production filters to smooth out skin tones and produce the most flattering look possible.

Do you offer aerial drone filming?

We are fully approved by the Civil Aviation Authority for aerial filming. We are fully licensed, fully insured and fully qualified pilots. Anybody operating a drone for commercial gain requires approval from the CAA, anybody without this approval is operating illegally and breaking the law and will not be insured. You can be assured that with our years of experience, training and qualifications we will always operate safely and within the law. Where aerial filming is included in your package it must be understood that we can only fly where conditions and permissions permit (as judged by the PiC). The client is responsible for obtaining permission from the venue but we will provide the venue with any paperwork they require.

What techniques do you use for audio recordings?

We use a variety of audio recording methods, but for recording people speaking (in the ceremony and speeches for example) we use small discreet lapel mics. Audio clarity falls off exponentially the further away the mic is, and therefore lapel mics provide the best sound quality possible.

Will your filming interfere?

We are discreet and unobtrusive, filming on long lenses. This allows us to capture the day as naturally as possible, without guests worrying about being on camera. The biggest compliment we receive regularly is from couple’s saying they hardly realised we were there. Discretion is key, and is the best way to capture relaxed natural footage. We let the day unfold and film in a reportage style without intervention. We do not use bright lights, and we keep our distance so as not to cause a distraction. We will deliver you a creative and professional wedding film with the minimum of fuss.

How long will my wedding video be?

Our signature wedding film is a short form edit – we compress all the events of the day into an extremely high quality short film that captures all the atmosphere of the day and is perfect for watching again and again and sharing with family and friends – this is usually 4-6 minutes long like the examples on this site. The length of the full length film will depend on the length of the ceremony, the speeches, any traditional dances and anything else that’s included in realtime. We do not set limits on the length of this film as we try to include absolutely as much as possible, so if it needs to be longer as is often the case with Indian weddings and Greek weddings then that is no problem!

Do you film outside London?

We are based in London but operate nationwide and abroad. Should you be planning a destination wedding and looking for a videographer then please do contact us for further information.

Do we need to supply food for you?

Wedding days can be very hard work and any food that you provide your photographers and videographers is always hugely appreciated. Wedding venues will usually offer a reduced rate staff meal. I am actually a vegetarian, but none of my other videographers have any special dietary requirements. However if this is not possible please inform us in advance.

Do you only film weddings?

I have been a professional cameraman for over fifteen years on feature films, commercials, documentaries, promos and concerts, working with some of the biggest names in the industry. My award winning films have been shown worldwide. I bring this experience to your wedding video.

Are you insured?

We are fully insured. We have professional indemnity and £5 million public liability insurance.
