Greg & Sophie, Combermere Abbey Wedding Video

Short Film (Feature film at the end)

When fun loving couple Greg and Sophie tied the knot on May 26th 2018 the sun was shining and the day started perfectly. At her parents house Sophie and the bridal party shared lots of smiles, giggles and stories whilst preparing for the best day of her life. Dressed in a laced top bridal gown and flowers in her hair Sophie was ready to ride in a traditional vintage wedding car along with her father. They became the new Mr and Mrs at Ightfield church Whitchurch. 

The reception venue was at the prestige Combermere Abbey Estate, sat upon thousands of years of history this venue offers gardens, woodlands and a beautiful glasshouse to set the scene for your dream fairytale wedding. Working closely along side the brilliant Doug Krier photographer I discreetly followed the new bride and groom to explore the venue and captured some footage showing off Greg and Sophie’s quirky and fun personalities, by this I mean bursting into dance during their photo shoot, just brilliant to see such life and laughter between them. 

After the delicious wedding breakfast guests retired outside to enjoy the stunning grounds, they enjoyed a game of croquet or two before continuing the party long into the evening. Mise En Scene Floral supplied props, the letters and flower wall to add to the guests enjoyment. 

Some very talented entertainers joined us throughout the day, these included the beautiful glass house Music Adaigo Strings who played during the reception and the fantastic Hot Jazz Biscuits who kept the party rocking into the evening.

Congratulations Greg and Sophie what a day to remember!

What goes into your wedding video?

Welcome to our first blog!

So have you ever wondered why wedding videos vary in price and what goes into them? You really want one but you can't justify paying the price? Below are just a few things to think about what goes into your video package. 

Time is a big thing when it comes to your wedding video. A days filming is only a segment of what you are paying for. The main time is spent in the edit suite. We give you a delivery time frame to deliver your edit to give us the flexibility to finalize your edit to the best we can rather than a production line process. We limit the number of weddings we take on every year allowing us to prepare and spend quality time on every project we take on.

There are a bundle of things that go on behind the scenes including finding the right music, Importing, exporting and archiving your projects, DVD creating and burning, business marketing, leasing with clients and planning up to each wedding. 

We can spend hours picking the right song for your video. Our approach to your videos is to license all music used. This gives you the freedom to share your highlight videos online with your friends and family without breaking any copyright law. Using 'royalty free' music also adds that unique touch to your video rather than going down the mainstream music route where you may find the songs will feel dated after a few months/years.

We like to keep our video styles up to date and fresh. Kit can be a big part of this! We do a lot of research looking out for different filming styles and ways to increase your video quality. New products are coming on the market all the time improving ways to achieve this, but as you’re aware video equipment comes at a cost. We also like to change our cameras regularly, the last thing we want is to use a worn out camera that breaks during your ceremony, missing the key moments! Fingers crossed we haven't had this yet but we cannot guarantee kit doesn't break but we do our best to look after and prevent it!

Business Marketing - As you know all businesses have to market themselves somehow whether it would be on Facebook, Google adverts or exhibiting at fairs. Without this you never would have found us! 

When you book multiple operators for your video you can increase the quality & coverage of your day but it means you will be paying for a 2nd operator. We only have professional freelance operators on our books that we trust and have the same style of filming. Having a 2nd operator also means we can be in 2 places at once which is perfect if you are after the bride & groom preparations in the morning! 

I (Stuart) manage all the weddings we take on and I am the main points of contact from the word go to the delivery of your DVD’s. I direct & operate on the day and take pride in having the privilege of filming your day. Some companies are known to hire anyone with a camera to film your day but with us you have that piece of mind that im the person on the other end of the phone!

So make sure you do your research. Wedding video prices can start as little as £499 but make sure you know what you are getting and view examples of what your final video will look like.

Your wedding day only happens once, missing that special moment could be priceless!
