Frequently Asked Questions
Choosing the right supplier for you and your wedding can be tricky. You're likely to have a number of burning questions you want to be answered before committing to anything. Don't fear, I'm here to make the process of choosing a wedding videographer easier by showing you some of the questions we often receive from our couples.
Other wedding videographers are so expensive, why are your prices so low?
We all know how expensive weddings can be and when I started filming weddings, it was quite clear that a lot of couples' budgets were stretched extremely thin. This meant that a wedding video was simply not an option for a lot of couples because videographers were often charging in excess of £1000 for the privilege.
Weddings videos are unrivaled in allowing you to relive your wedding day time and time again. Looking back on your photos is great but the ability to hear the vows, hear the speeches, and watch the first dance that you'd practiced months for is only really an option with video. To put it simply, I want every couple, regardless of their budget, to have the option of having a wedding video. That's why I am offering you the option to have one at a much lower price without compromising quality.
What do I actually receive when I book you to film my wedding?
When you book your wedding video with CP Video and Photo Weddings, you receive full-day coverage of your wedding day. I film from the bridal preparations up until the end of the first dance, and everything in between. This includes the full ceremony and speeches too!
Your wedding video is supplied on a beautifully presented personalised wooden USB which makes it easy to view your video on your TV or computer. (Watch this space for a new option by the way). On the USB you receive a feature-length edit of your day (usually between 45 and 60 minutes depending on the length of the speeches and ceremony). This is broken down into chapters - Bridal preparations, The arrivals and Ceremony, Informal couple shots, Speeches, Cake Cutting and First Dance. You also receive a 2-4 minute highlight reel to your chosen song (like the videos on our main page).
Can we choose the music for
our wedding video?
Yes! You can select your own music to be used on your wedding video. This is a great way of making a video bespoke to each wedding and couple. Music is licensed per USB for domestic use only. This does mean that you cannot share the video online; however, if you want to show off your wedding video to your friends and family online (most people do), don't worry. As part of the package, you will receive a highlight video edit to a music track that is suitable for sharing online.
What is the booking process and do I need to pay a deposit?
The booking process couldn't be simpler. The first thing for you to do is get in touch and see if we are available on your wedding date. Assuming we are (we do get very busy), it's a simple case of you telling us that you'd like to book u to film your wedding. You're in the diary and you will receive your booking confirmation.
Upon booking, we do ask for a £150 deposit to secure your wedding date. The deposit is to be paid no later than 3 months before your wedding date. The remaining balance is to be paid the week before your wedding.
