Frequently asked questions

Years and years! In fact, I’ve seen so many weddings that I’m starting to feel like a professional guest! Seriously though, I’ve been shooting weddings since 2015 and absolutely love it. I’ve built up a wealth of experience in capturing all the special moments, so you can be sure that I’ll do an amazing job on your wedding day. 

Well, let me start off by saying that I don’t just capture wedding videos – I tell wedding stories! My wedding videos are all about capturing the emotion, the atmosphere and the excitement of your day in a way that will take you straight back to the moment. I use top-of-the-range equipment, so you can be sure that your finished product is crisp, sharp and bursting with colour. And when it comes to editing, I go the extra mile to make sure that you get a wedding video that you’ll treasure for years to come. 

It depends on what package you choose! But at the end of the day, wedding videos are an investment – one that will last long after your wedding day is over. I have standard packages to suit all budgets, so you can be sure that you’ll get great value for money no matter what. Plus, a wedding video will give you memories to look back on and share with your family and friends in years to come – now that’s priceless! 

I am based on the Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex borders and I cover wedding videography all over the country as well as destination weddings. So wherever your wedding is taking place, I can be there to capture it all! 

Absolutely! I have a portfolio full of wedding videos that you can have a look at to get an idea of my style and the quality of our work. I also have wedding films featured on my blog, so you can see how I’ve captured different wedding days in all their glory. 

I aim to have your wedding video ready within 6-8 weeks of your wedding day. However, delivery times can vary depending on the package you choose, the one thing I will not do is compromise speed for quality! The maximum time however is 90 days.

I do not have hours as such, I am all yours for the day! I usually arrive around three hours before the ceremony begins and stay until after the first dance. However, I can stay for longer if required if you have stuff happening like fireworks – I don’t want to out stay my welcome though and want everyone to enjoy the night without being reserved because their are cameras around!

I ask for £250 booking fee to secure the date due upon signing a contract. The rest is due one 14 days before the date of your wedding. I will usually contact you a month before your date anyway to catch up with your planning and remind you. I know you will be busy and my aim is to make things as easy as possible. I also offer a 0% interest free plan. This means you can pay monthly payments to help spread the payments. You can find more information about this in the packages section.

Yes – I have a range of standard wedding packages to suit every budget and need. From basic wedding videos to full wedding films, but I can help you create the perfect wedding video for you and your partner. 

I always work closely with every couple to ensure that their wedding videos look as perfect as possible before they’re delivered. However, if you have any specific requests, please let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate them. 

Most of my packages include the recording of the ceremony and speeches. These will be delivered as separate films. 

For the ceremony I use discreet microphones to capture the audio for both the Bride and Groom, as well the officiator. I take special care to make sure no wires are ever showing. As well, I use an extremely small form factor with my mic setup, so it’s neither uncomfortable or noticeable.

No, I’ve found it works much better to put a microphone on only the groom. This microphone is able to pick up the audio from both the bride and groom during the ceremony at a clear crisp quality.

Myself and a second if booked will be there. Sometimes thats my son Sam and sometimes it’s one of the few guys I work with on a regular basis. However I’m always personally invested into every film I make.

I do my best to blend in on your wedding day. I hope that you would not really notice me and that is how I capture natural moments from your day.

I love working with other photographers and as wedding photographer myself, understand how they work. I also do my best to work with them so everything goes smoothly during your wedding day:)

I am always willing to try to arrange to meet my brides and grooms beforehand so we can go over the details and just say hi:) 

Of course, if at any time you would like additional features or coverage then I am happy to do this for you. You can also opt to downgrade your package if you change your mind. I want to ensure you receive the service from me that you want.

I have reciprocal arrangements with other wedding videographers across the country.  In the event of illness (or other such emergency) then I would aim to substitute myself with someone of equal quality or better and a very similar style.

Where possible I will provide you with a few names and their work so you can choose the person you like the best.  But please bear in mind that in exceptional circumstances this may not be possible.  So for example if there was an emergency on the way to your wedding then my priority would be to assign a replacement immediately. 

Any difference in cost will be my problem.  Not yours.

To date I have never had to use my emergency protocols but they are in place, just in case!
