No problem! Here are the ones we get asked most frequently. If yours isn’t here, please get in touch and we’ll get back to you toot suite.
We love your videos but got a quote from another videographer who charges less than you. Are you able to drop your prices?
With respect, no. We believe in the premium quality of our work and take a lot of time during the edit to achieve this quality and make sure our films are truly unique to each couple. We also only work with a limited number of couples each year, ensuring our undivided attention and focus. Naturally, this attracts a premium. As the saying goes though, ‘You get what you pay for’ and our super-duper thrilled couples attest to that.
How many hours will you need with us on the day?
Wedding days are notoriously busy, so we go out of our way to streamline the process and stay out of your (beautifully styled!) hair.
We normally spend 45 minutes with the groom, 1 hour and 15 minutes with the bride, and we aim to be at the ceremony spot 30 minutes before it starts to set up. During the reception, we normally finish 30 minutes to an hour after the formalities are done, ensuring we can get some dancefloor action to capture the vibe and atmosphere of your night. If you’ve got a unique farewell planned (we love us some sparklers!) you can always add more hours to your package and have us stick around to capture the magic.
Can we choose our own music for our film?
Whilst it would actually be easiest for us to just use whatever you want for music, we take a different approach. Why? Because it’s important to us to go the extra mile and find truly unique music that complements your footage and makes your video stand out from the crowd. We find these hidden gems on Musicbed, which is a compilation of great indie artists with amazing, undiscovered tracks. In our Highlight Films, we usually use a few different tracks – enabling us to separate the sentimental moments from the ‘Let’s go crazy and dance!’ stuff.
Using Musicbed also means we’re able to purchase the music licence, meaning you can share your video online without any issues (or the risk of being sued by a record label!).
Can we give input / suggestions to our film?
Absolutely! Your input is so important to us. We also supply one draft version of the film before we finalise the video, ensuring you’re 100% happy. With that said, it’s also important for you to trust us and give us creative freedom so we can create the best film for you. If you love our previous films, you’ll love what we create for you!
Do you also record audio of the ceremony and speeches?
Yes, audio is one of the most important memories of your day! Usually we mic up the groom and the celebrant’s PA during the ceremony, and we mic up the lectern or the DJ / house system during speeches. We record the ceremony and speeches in full so you’ll have them in your Raw Edit to listen to for years to come.
How will you work together with our photographer?
We’re very flexible on the day and have a candid and natural style, so we work well with photographers who have the same approach. We can still work with your photographer even if they’re a little more directive and like to create poses. We usually let them take the lead and ask for just a few extra seconds once they get their shot so that we can capture different angles and moments.
How long after our wedding will we receive our video?
We are super fussy and spend a long time getting your edit exactly right. This means the wait can be up to 2 to 3 months, but if you just can’t wait, we can rush it through for a small additional fee (pending availability).
We love your videos and we’re keen beans! What’s the next step?
Awesome, we can’t wait to meet you! Please get in touch to arrange an appointment so we can get to know each other and discuss your special day. Just so you know up front – we book out well in advance, so if you can, it’s worth securing your date as soon as possible. We require a 30% deposit, with the rest due before your wedding day.
