So why have a wedding video?
Wedding Videos are a great opportunity, not just for me to expand my craft but also for all the happy couples out there that desperately need a piece of their wedding day that they can hold onto forever. Unlike wedding photography which usually captures still images of the entire day, wedding videography focuses on capturing the moments that mean something to you specifically. Being part of your wedding is an honour and a privilege and I can’t wait to give you the chance to re-watch your day all over again and to re-live those precious moments.
We've all been to those weddings where the wedding video was under the responsibility of Uncle Bob, but unless you know what you are doing it will unfortunately lead to unhappy results. Such examples include the bride and groom consistently out of focus (classic) or the best mistake that wins the prize...you've left the lens cap on! (Trust me Ive seen this happen at weddings and it is just as painful as it sounds).
Anything that can go wrong will go wrong in most cases and the best way to avoid this upset is to hire a professional wedding videographer. This is to ensure nothing goes wrong with your video and the end result will be a complete reflection of what you remembered from that special day, including some details that you may have missed entirely. That’s what is so great about my unobtrusive style as it gives me a chance to capture as much of the day as possible without excluding any of the finer details. Remember its the small things that make the big things happen.
I try to be as discreet as possible during my videography process as it not only helps put you at ease (I mean who really wants a camera shoved in their face all the time), but it dramatically helps me as a videographer in the long run as I tend to get the most natural shots of the day through this approach. This means I only get real and authentic shots, nothing overly staged or set up (with exception to the ceremony and speeches) so all we get from everyone are pure real reactions which always look fantastic in the final video. Its almost as if I wasn’t even there.
I don't just create videography for London & Surrey weddings!
Although I am a videographer based in the London and Surrey area I will always aim to travel to any wedding location in the UK and abroad and although I will ask expenses for wedding venues that are further to travel to I will always include any personal expenses on my part for any wedding taking place in London, Surrey or the South East.
Videography in glorious 4K resolution!
Why should you have to settle for less when you can have more? 4K isn’t just a marketing gimmick, I genuinely believe it makes all the difference when viewing your final wedding video. Most videographers would charge a great deal more for adding such a service to your package, however I disagree with that approach. Although it is true that 4K extends the editing time considerably I don’t believe you should have to pay anything extra for something so cosmetic. At the end of the day you are hiring me; not my camera. I am the one creating your video, my camera is but a tool I use to create the video that will exceed your expectations. Again I don’t charge extra for this service purely on the basis that I refuse to shoot on anything else. (You’ll thank me later.)
I mean why settle for less?
I am here to help!
I also offer a free consultation service and whenever possible I would like to meet the bride and groom either at the venue prior to the wedding or at a location of their choice to discuss the timings of the days events and what they specifically require for their individual wedding video. This helps us all to get on the same page and to establish trust between us. You should never meet your photographer or videographer for the first time on the day of the wedding! If meeting in person isn’t an option then I would love to have a Skype call with you to discuss your wedding day in more detail and to answer any questions you may have.
I have worked with some amazing photographers around London, Surrey and all over the United Kingdom whilst filming weddings so if you are currently stuck in your hiring process and need some recommendations for the best of the best then please let me know and I’ll be happy to provide a list of trusted photographers. Many of whom are personal friends of mine who I trust 100% and we would be happy to combine both services into one whole package to make your wedding that much more easier to manage
I am lucky in this industry to have had the opportunity to shoot at some beautifully stunning wedding venues all over the uk so if you've made it this far but still don't have a venue locked down Im sure I will be able to recommend a suitable location for you. Just state in the contact form that you are still on the lookout for a venue. I am after all here to make your day as hassle free as possible.
I fully acknowledge that every wedding will have different requirements so I always encourage customisation wherever possible.
I am truly blessed to have this opportunity to do something that I love as an occupation and I can’t wait to meet you and be a part of your big day.
