Frequently Asked Questions
Can We chose the music used in the video?
Unfortunately no. There are many complicated laws surrounding the music that can be used in wedding videos. To avoid any copyright issues, you are unable to have your favourite Ed Sheeran song in the video for example. I will however, always try to match the correct type of song to the correct moment. I have a subscription to Sound Stripe which has a large library of suitable music to chose from. This means I will always be able to find the best music possible.
How long until our video will be ready?
This one is hard to answer! How long is a piece of string? But in all seriousness, this changes throughout the year. During summer you can expect a longer wait time. I will have a longer backlog of videos to edit. I know that waiting for your film can be difficult as you cannot wait to see the results. Rest assured, I will also always try to keep you updated if your film is going to take longer than expected.
Do you travel abroad or do elopement shoots?
Can you make our highlight video longer than 5-7 minutes?
In other words, why do I make the highlight video 5-7 minutes? I believe this is the optimum time for the style of video that I like to produce. Less is more as they say, and this is especially true in wedding videos. 5-7 minutes is enough time to capture the very best moments of the day and condense them into a video that you will want to revisit again and again. I also offer the longer documentary edit as part of my package, for when you want to re-watch the whole day.
Do you charge for travel and accomodation?
If you are getting married within 70 miles of where I live (Hoxton), then we don't need to worry about travel or accommodation. If you are getting married any further than this, we will need to start looking into travel expenses. If the location is really far, I may need to pop into an Air B&B which would also need to be factored into the quote.
Can you film both of us getting ready?
Yes! As part of the package I offer, I include the services of a second shooter. This means that we can essentially be in two places at once. I can shoot the bride whilst my second shooter can shoot the groom.
Wow wow wow!! I can not recommend Simon enough for the work he did in filming our wedding and producing our amazing video. The way he has brought together all the best bits of the day into a film impeccably edited is just incredible. I literally could not have asked for anything better and have watched the film so many times as it brings back so many wonderful memories of such a fantastic day.
