Why are you different?

We are very passionate about crafting the most cinematic wedding videos we can and always push ourselves with different shots and movements. Drew has an Art Degree so his creative side is very much at the forefront of this business. His time producing videos since 2012 has helped him know what film equipment to use and how. Tracy is also very creative and loves weddings. She sees details happening around her she cant wait to capture. Drew and Tracy have recently completed a Filmmaking Master Class by an industry professional so watch this space!

Having a couple (Drew&Tracy) produce your video also helps us understand the ability to watch your video time and again with no cringe moments and shaky old school filming.

We film your day with HD/4K cameras with gimbals, Drone, tripods, Mics etc and afterwards we colour correct, colour grade and piece together you film.

Why is two Videographers better than one?

To create our high-end videos these day you really need two people. We have lots of equipment to help us capture your day. One operator can be filming whilst the other is setting up mics & cameras for the ceremony. Once the ceremony is a go its best to have our cameras manned to make sure they don’t stop recording during the vows. Otherwise how would you know? its a very slick operation. Two people are also required for flying our drone as it helps to have an Observer (to make sure we don’t crash into a tree) and the operator to fly.

When is the remaining balance due to be paid?

The remainder balance is due no later than 30days prior to the event but you can pay before this time just ask for an invoice to be sent (lots of couples do this for peace of mind).

When will my wedding film be ready?

Depending on the time of year we aim to have your highlight video online around 4- 6weeks after your wedding day for you to share and reminisce on your awesome day. The full wedding video turnaround can be between 6-14weeks. We use professional editing software and editing techniques to produce your video so it takes a little bit of time to get things right.

How long will my video be?

This depends on your package and your day. We aim to produce highlights 2-4mins in length with licensed music. Your wedding video length depends on the package and the type of day you are having. Most our wedding videos are approx 1hr including full ceremony and speeches which is about the right length to watch with friends and family. However if your ceremony is quite short and speeches only last 10mins this will reflect in the overall video length being shortened.

Do you film discreetly?

As you can tell from our highlight videos we get involved in your day but we also film discreetly where appropriate. At the ceremony you may not really see us but you will see us when you exit the ceremony and we film the epic confetti shot. One of the most exciting parts of the day for us is to film your video-shoot. We may direct you where to stand, walk or look but most couples do this very naturally. Please don’t worry about being on camera we are very chilled out videographers who make the bride and groom feel conformable and relaxed on the day.

Filmmaker & Photographer

The morning of the wedding we aim to have a friendly chat with your photographer and plan out both our ideas for capturing photographs and video. Our cameras may look the same but both jobs are very different and one location may not work for the other so please remember to allow for enough time for both of us to capture imagery. Most weddings allow 1hr or so for this depending on locations. Again we are very easy to work with.

What locations should we look for for the video-shoot?

A great question. As more and more couples book with us we release they are after that amazing cinematic storytelling video. Location really helps make this happen. What we look for are beaches, woodland, fields with long grass, walled gardens, Hills and rivers. These amazing locations can turn a wedding film into something much more but please remember to ask permission where appropriate .

How Much is a wedding video?

How much should you send on a wedding video depends on a few things, first whats your budget? and second what sort of film do you want, or what sort of style. Remember this is your big day so its a good idea to have professional wedding filmmakers such as ourself to do it.  Check out our packages page to see what do.

Do I need to feed you?

That sounds amazing but you don’t need to feed us. We will however take a dinner and pudding if offered thank you.

I have more questions, can I call you? Yeah sure – 07873349254

Drone, to the skys!

Depending on your package and location we try to fly our drone where we can to help create your wedding video. We have flown many places and hold permission from the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) and have professional insurance. We use our drone mostly for locations shots and hopefully with the bride and groom. Please remember to give us time if you would like a drone clip of you both on the video shoot as we need to set up. Please note we cannot fly in towns, city centres or congested areas. If you have any questions about our drone please just ask.
