FAQ about Wedding Videography

What is your Wedding Videography Style?

Our wedding videography style is all about atmosphere, emotion and fun. We choose angles and backgrounds that make everything look its best. Sometimes, we might have to create moments for maximum impact, but most of the time, we capture everything as it happens, with a close eye on light and composition. The resulting film is open and honest. You’ll get a wedding film showing people as they really are, but looking awesome while doing it. 

What does our wedding film include, how long will it be and what resolution?

The final video resolution will depend on the package you have chosen, minimum HD up to 4K if required.

HD resolution is a standard format that provides a high level of detail and clarity in the final video. It is typically 1920×1080 pixels, and it’s the format that most modern televisions and devices are able to display.

4K resolution is even higher resolution than HD, it’s 3840×2160 pixels, and it provides an even more detailed and immersive viewing experience.

The length of your wedding film largely depends on how long your speeches and ceremony are. Usually, you will get an hour long edited wedding film as a digital download in HD.

For and extra fee we could provide the wedding film in 4K, send you the raw footage, make a DVD/Blu-ray, USB or a short cinematic wedding highlights film.

How many hours of videography do you need for a wedding?

Plan for eight hours of filming.

How many camcorders do you use?

We use at least 2 camcorders as standard on all of our videos to ensure a good range of coverage. Sometimes we might add more camcorders.

How do you capture sound?

During ceremony and speeches we use a lavaliere clip on microphone on the groom to pick up clear audio of the vows. We also use on-camera microphone to capture the atmosphere. During speeches we’ll try to get a clean Audio output from the DJ’s audio mixer.

How do you avoid getting in the way of the wedding?

We will try to be as discreet as possible whilst still being able to capture the best shots. We use the long lenses during the ceremony and speeches (where possible) and zoom in and out as needed, so we don’t encroach on your special moments.

Can we watch examples of your full feature wedding films or a religious ceremony?

Yes of course, get in touch and we’ll send you some examples.
