Help At Hand

With insight derived from years of experience within the wedding industry and witnessing the trials and triumphs of couples planning their special day,  I have gained a thorough understanding of the colossal undertaking of planning a wedding.

Planning your wedding might appear daunting but it need not be so. I endeavour to lend a helping hand wherever required. Whether you need supplier recommendations, photography advice or just general wedding information; you can rest assured that via a complement of outstanding wedding suppliers your wedding day will come together perfectly.  

So If you have any queries throughout your planning - film related or not - then do not hesitate to ask.

03.

A note on sound Recording

To maintain a premium quality cinematic film it is essential to capture great sound recording of your ceremony and speeches. The best sound recording would require a discrete lapel (clip on) microphone to be fitted to the individual speakers just before the speeches.

It is normally fitted to the suit jacket or shirt or hidden in a dress if required. This isn't as scary as it sounds but for those wishing not for this, then other standalone microphones can be used on request however this will lower the audio recording quality.

We can talk through all this before the day and that will allow me to work out the best options for the day.

The: wedding Day

03.

The wedding Preparations

The preparation times are essentially the foundation of your wedding day. These moments will create some of the most beautiful natural imagery from the entire day. It is therefore always recommended to capture and are a personal favourite to of mine to film.

These times are always full of raw emotions, whether that may be nervous anticipation or tears of sheer joy & happiness as proud family members capture their first glimpse of you in the wedding dress.

I work in a minimally invasive manner to avoid disrupting the flow of your wedding day. I intend to capture you film whilst you barely know that I am around. It will be pure documentary, but somewhat jazzy with a dollop of laughter.


I usually arrive at the wedding preparation two hours before the ceremony. I am flexible on this should another time suit.

If both of you are getting ready at the same venue, then it should not be a problem for me to attend and film both of you getting wedding ready. This can however result in moments missed with the other party.

For that reason I include a second videographer on the extensive package, and also have the add on option to include a second videographer to attend your day and focus solely on one or the other of you - the benefits of this can be seen later on in the wedding pack.

Two bride weddings would almost certainly need this.


Quick Tip

The best place to get ready is in rooms with windows and lots of natural light. Your hair and MUA team will love you for it and your photographs will be the extra bit awesome.

04.

The wedding ceremony

Essentially this is the most important part of your day. I will have a multi camera setup to capture the full ceremony with sound. We will discuss readings prior and make sure everyone is microphoned up. I move discreetly throughout the wedding ceremony - even taking my shoes off 


Take Note

Quite often we are put under limitations from the ceremony officiant - for instance where to stand or when to take film. Although it can be annoying, I will always respect their decisions.

It is important to understand how this may impact your expectations and is worth discussing with your officiant prior to your day.  

Quick Tip

The optimal time to produce this imagery is when the light is at its warmest, this is normally in the hour before the sun sets. The low sun position creates dramatic lighting and nostalgic, romantic tones

05.

The couple portraits

This is when you can take a break from all of the commotion of your
wedding day!  This time is normally lead by the photographer and I will capture some clips using my unique cinematic style.

I always recommend that you do this alone, that way you can
both feel relaxed and more comfortable. It means that you also have a chance to spend some time together on your day!

During this time I will work with the photographer and occasionally interject to give some minor directions as a means to encourage natural footage that suits moving imagery. Generally movement is always best for film visuals, even if it is just a subtle sway.
 

07.

The little details

During your wedding planning you will have spent a lot of time
thinking about how everything will look.

Whether it be flowers, candles, centrepieces, colour schemes, or
wedding favours - I want to make sure that I document and eternalise all of this in a contextual way to your day.

If there are any small details that might not be so obvious, or that hold special sentiment then let me know and I will make sure I capture them. Eg. Grandad's heirloom pocket watch or your Great Grandmother's lucky brooch. 

08.

Those Candid Wedding moments

With the style I use it is often remarked that I am hardly noticed to be around - a 'film ninja' - this facilitates the capture of those little special moments of you and your guests enjoying your day!

I endeavour to film every guest where possible however some
have a brilliant ability of hiding from me - therefore please feel free to make me aware of the ‘more important’ people.

One thing I can guarantee is that every film clip I capture will
be a real moment, full of laughs, tears & smiles from throughout
your day.

This epitomises my enjoyment of capturing these special days. 
Creating a true snapshot of a celebration filled with reality, love and a myriad of other emotions. All whilst having a chuckle and enjoying what the day unfolds.  

09.

The Dinner

Filming a wedding is a very physically demanding job, so at some point I will need a chance to have a break, eat some hot food, and get prepared for the night, the best time for me to do this is whilst you are all eating the wedding breakfast.

It is always great when some food is provided for me, however, I never ask for it. I am more than happy to cater for myself but I do request you let me know if the venue allow for me to buy food somewhere whilst you are eating. Sometimes smaller venues close their kitchens to the public during weddings or generally don't have the facilities to cater for me.

If food is provided for me, then thanks, I am happy to sit with yourselves if that is your preference, although I tend to prefer to be away from the guests just so I can backup the footage and generally have a little relax.

10.

The wedding speeches

This is likely the most important part of any wedding film. The sound is often used as an overlay to your entire film. I will use a multi camera set up and capture sound using small lapel microphones. It is essential I know who all the speakers are prior to the day, ideally the order in which they are speaking and where they are sitting.

Quick note

It might take a little while setting up the multi cameras and the sound for each speaker. It's always best to get this set and then I'll give you the nod before that first glass is tapped.

11.

The Evening

Once the champagne has settled, the cake cut, and the first dance danced - it is then time to bust a groove on the dancefloor and capture that important footage of your friends and family embarrassing themselves on the dance floor. 

I normally stay until late as the more arms that fly in the air (and humans) the better the footage. I'll always let you know when I feel I have captured enough but if there is anything else you want then we'll get that too!

Little Idea

If it a beautiful summer evening, and the venue allows it why not move the dance outside. dancing as the sun sets or under the starlight create beautiful moments! Boom!

12.

Your Films

You will receive all your film via your private online viewing gallery. From here you can download your films or steam to a TV directly from the gallery.

All the final films are individually edited & graded. I take
great care to edit each clip with sensitivity, in order to keep
them looking as natural as possible, whilst enhancing them by
applying my developed style.

A mini highlights film will be ready in the two weeks post wedding. Post processing of your final films will take around 12-16 weeks. This might be subject to change in super peak periods. I can always give a closer estimation after the wedding.

13.

this is us shoots // £500

These shoots, around 2 hours, are a great way to create beautiful artistic imagery without the pressure of your wedding day, whilst also allowing us to explore more interesting scenery that wouldn't otherwise be possible.

These sessions, often called engagement or trash your dress shoots, can be done anywhere  - I normally recommend a location that means something to you - otherwise a park, woodland or beach work best for a nice intimate stroll.

A 'This is us' shoot is a great way for you to get used to my approach and being in front of a camera. I am happy to shoot whenever and for those interested I am happy to do a more intimate 'raw' couples shoot. You will receive mini cinematic film and a few photographs of your personal story. I tend to suggest sound recording secret personal messages to each other to play as part of your film.

these shoots include photography +  Film

14.

2nd videographer // £500

Having two videographers present for your day can be a
major bonus. Not only do you have different angles during
the ceremony but you can have two people capturing the
little moments is two different places a once.

It is often essential - if distance is an issue - when you are
wanting both preparations to be filmed. Also for two Bride weddings involving a lot of preparations.

To give me enough time to book in the best second shooter, it is always recommended to make me aware you would like to add a second on as soon as you have decided. Although tempting - I promise I won’t use Tinks!

Included as part of The : Extensive Package

15.

Wedding Photography // £1750

Still looking for a wedding photographer? Then that can be added too. I used my unique award winning style to match both films and photographs. 

Wedding photography with me is a fun and relaxing experience and my style allows to discreetly document your magical memories as your day unfolds naturally.

All combined packages come with a fellow videographer or photographer to help with the day.

This package Includes a second photographer

16.

The Guest Book // £400

Want personalised video messages from your guests? 

A camera will be set up for an hour two so during the meal/evening to allow you guests to share a video message of appreciation to you.

Professional microphones and lighting will be used to capture the messages. All messages will be complied into a single video for you to enjoy at home.
