Frequently Asked Questions

I’m based in Surrey, but will definitely travel if needed. I enjoy being able to explore new locations and love to do destination weddings. I am well-known for my videography throughout London, Kent, Essex, and other areas of the UK.

I do not limit myself on hours. I will often stay 11 hours or more to ensure I have all the footage I need to tell your wedding story. My day will begin just before you start preparing for the wedding. I will continue to film throughout the day until approximately 30 minutes after you have the first dance. Arrangements can be made if I need to stay a bit longer.

I record the preparation, the ceremony, the speeches, the first dance, and any other event you would like.

I maintain a fairly tight schedule and limit the number of weddings I accept. A flexible schedule allows me to devote the time I need to my existing clients. 28 days is the soonest you will receive them. 90 days is the longest you may have to wait. Teaser videos are often ready in just a few days.

Yes! I will work with your photographer so that we both have the positioning we need to provide you with quality photographs and videos.
