It’s always just me on the day, no huge film crews and I never put a time limit on how long I’ll stay with you – I always stay until after the first dance and I always tell couples that I’ll say my goodbyes when I know that I have enough material to make a great film. I won’t leave if I feel that I don’t have enough to make something amazing. I always prefer to begin filming from the Bridal Prep in the am (some brides prefer not to be filmed in the morning and we can discuss if this is what you require when we meet up); right the way through to the evening dancing. And I LOVE a lot of dancing in the evening!
Before your big day, I’ll spend some time getting to know you and arrange at least one meet up to chat through plans. I like to check through the plan of your day, making sure that I have correct timings and locations so I can be in the right place at the right time.
I shoot with Sony and Canon DSLR’s cameras so am discreet and you won’t have an entire film crew following you around all day. Infact at almost every wedding someone thinks I’m a photographer and asks me to take a photo. Your guests won’t even know they are being filmed.
Each package comes with the films of the full service, speeches and first dance. I provide your films via a Digital streaming and download and via a USB stick. DVD copies are available and are priced at £20 each. Extra USB Sticks are priced at £10. There may be some travel expenses, but these will be discussed at time of booking.
These prices reflect:
My insurances – am fully insured with public liability insurance.
My professional and discreet standards. I come armed with top notch equipment, cameras, backups & lots of beautiful lenses.
My extensive expertise and wedding experience. With over 100 Weddings under my belt I have the experience to handle any little issues or situations that may arise.
My time on the day. You also get me all day, usually from around the bridal prep until after your first dance.
My edit time. This is where the magic happens. The crafting of the story, the choice of the music, the editing and the time I take to grade, mix and enhance your film in my unique style. This can take anything from 5 days to 5 weeks depending on the time of year and how long your films are.
My travel. I travel 50 miles of Coggeshall as part of the initial price. Weddings further afield will be subject to a small charge for petrol and possibly a travel lodge. But we’ll discuss all this at time of booking.
“We found a gem In Phil and his work captures the emotion and tone perfectly with his natural and creative style. The highlights video he created for us has had people in tears all over again, especially our parents. It’s great to have so we can watch anytime we like to relive our wedding day. Phil was a pleasure to work with, letting us get on with our day without bothering us, but still getting the right shots for his work. Some of our guests didn’t even know we had a videographer.”
