I'm not one for bragging, but I recently won an award for my style of filming and my customer satisfaction. I mean... If I may say so myself... I'm pretty good!
If COVID restrictions prevent your wedding from taking place, I will do my very best to work with you and reschedule your date. If I am not available, I will refund your deposit.
No extra charges are required if government restrictions prevent your wedding from taking place. I will transfer your deposit to your new date and the final payment will be required 4 weeks before the wedding.
Yes I can hold provisional dates, but do require an additional deposit for this.
Sorry, deposits are non refundable unless I am unavailable for your new rescheduled date.
Yes, I always record the ceremony and speeches.
You can share the link with your family and friends, they will be able to download the films as they wish.
All of my films are shot in 4k but delivered in HD. I am able to deliver in 4k, however not many have a true 4k screen.
Depending on your venue location, charges may apply which will be taken in to account when booking and discussed with you. Please note if your wedding is more than 2 hours away, accommodation might be needed so I can assure I am performing at my best.
I feel it is important to get both partners preparation as it plays an emotional part to the day and shared by so many as a look behind the scenes which many will not see.
A typical wedding day will be filmed by me (Josh) as I am competent enough. In some cases where another videographer is needed, I have other filmmakers like me who I work well with and will subcontract to get the shots required.
Yes, I am fully insured for public liability and professional indemnity. I am happy to send these documents to your venue if required.
I am based in Somerset but do cover the UK and willing to travel if accommodation is available. For weddings outside of the UK, to be honest I love the idea but have a young family so it is unlikely.
Editing takes time to perfect and every wedding film is different. I always allow between 8 -12 weeks to allow quality checks. To sweeten the deal I always release a 1 minute teaser between 24-48 hours after your wedding.
Copyright issues prevent me from choosing any music so unfortunately it can't be selected by you. As part of what I am and how I edit, I choose the music for you so your Wedding film really stands out. I have licences to use the perfect music with thousands of tracks to choose from.
The equipment I use is discreet and light meaning I can blend in to your day like a guest. It also allows me to move the equipment quickly to always be in the right position at the right time.
Booking is easy! Firstly get in touch with me with your date and I will then set up a phone call or meet in person appointment if happy, I find it more personable if I can come and meet you both as you then know who you can trust. If happy I ask for a booking deposit of 20% to secure your date. An invoice will then be sent with the remaining balance to be paid 4 weeks before the wedding.
I always recommend booking your photographer & videographer as soon as you have confirmed your date with your chosen venue.
I specialise in videography and Wedding films more importantly so where we have been known to take the odd photo, I am not a photographer and always recommend booking in a photographer to work with me. If you need any recommendations then ask as I know a few!
Without a doubt! I love all walks of life and support all traditions of weddings from informal, formal, religious and all members of the LGBTQ+ community. Basically if the word Wedding is mentioned, I am there!
