With this years Wedding season just around the corner we have been busily wediting and delivering our Wedding films to last years happy couples.

The feedback we have received has been amazing! We know that after months of prepping and then the whirlwind of a wedding day, all our couples want to do is sit back, relax and enjoy married life! So we are truly grateful to all of our couples for taking the time to email us and leave us reviews on social media!

We work hard on our films both during the filming and editing process, so it is always heart warming when an email drops into our inbox from a couple letting us know how much they love their wedding film(s), we will never tire of it! One thing we didn’t expect our couples to comment on was our approach when creating wedding films;

We take it as a huge compliment that our couples feel at ease during the filming process, this is something that we strive for so are flattered that our efforts do not go unnoticed!

With this in mind, we thought we would share with you all just how we go about filming a wedding in order to make our couples feel comfortable during the whole process.

Firstly, let’s just state the obvious and say that nobody want’s someone that they don’t know at their wedding, especially if that someone is going to be lurking around pointing a camera at them all day! For us, it is important that we meet the couple before the big day itself. Yup, real life, in the flesh, meet them!

We tend to meet our couples in their homes or preferred relaxed location. This allows us to get to know our couples and their story (which we use as a voice over in the wedding film), but it also allows our couples to get to know us in an environment that they feel comfortable in. By the time we leave, we have normally had one or two cups of coffee’s, a load of laughs and feel as if we have known the soon to be newlyweds for years.

On the big day itself we work as a two person team to ensure that no matter the size or location of the wedding, we will always be able to get the coverage needed to create an amazing Wedding Film.

Ultimately we unobtrusively and discreetly capture everything, meaning that even if our couples miss something whilst caught up in the excitement, they can still look back on their wedding film and enjoy it all for the rest of their lives.

Of course there is also the whole editing process, but we’ll save that for another post 😀 !
