Our Approach

When we arrive at your wedding day, so much more planning has gone into the day than you might think. The same can also be said for after your wedding day, the day is just the beginning for us as we begin to tell the story of your day in a way that is unique to you.

On Booking

Next Steps

Once the wedding package is chosen and the £200 deposit is paid, you are all booked into our calendar!

At this point, you can send us as much information about your wedding plans as you wish, and we will start planning how to best capture your wedding.

A Few Months Before

Planning your day

If we haven't done so already, we will organise a video call to discuss your wedding plans. Hopefully by this point the majority of your wedding plans will have fallen into place and we can plan further details such as arrival times, positioning, and special moments to capture.

One Month Before

Final Payment Due

The full package total (minus £200 deposit) is due one month before your wedding date. Our client portal will send automatic reminders to let you know when the payment is due so you don't have to worry about setting reminders.

Wedding Day

Morning Preparations

The day has arrived! We usually aim to arrive between 3-4 hours before your ceremony starts. This gives us a chance to catch up and get to know everyone, before we crack on and start shooting. During this time, we shoot discretely and very much in the background.

Wedding Day

Ceremony

During the ceremony, there will be only be 1-2 videographers and we stay still for the entire ceremony. The only time we will move is if something changes and we need to reposition. We also attach a small audio recorder to the groom to get the best quality sound for your vows - it's at this point we ask you to try your best not to tell us any secrets!

Wedding Day

Reception

We love capturing the reception, it's where everyone gets a glass of bubbly and can finally chat to the newly married couple! Everyone is more relaxed and excited to have a great day. During this time, we shoot discretely so we can capture the natural moments.

Wedding Day

Couple Photoshoot

A photoshoot is the perfect time to capture a few romantic shots of you both, the shots of the emotions, the laughs, and the cheeky winks. We work with your photographer to make sure it's not awkward and that you're having a great time.

Wedding Day

Speeches

In our wedding films we like to incorporate the speeches to help build the story of the day, by giving every speaker a small audio recorder we can get the best sound quality possible for your wedding film. It's also a time where we get a bit watery eyed too!

Wedding Day

Evening

The evening is one of our favourite times during a wedding day, everyone has eaten and relaxed, and with speeches finished they can now relax and dance the night away. We tend to stay until the vibe moves from tipsy dancing to drunken dance moves - nobody wants to remember those!
