Listed below are the most common questions we are asked by clients
If you have any other questions , then please feel free to ask when you are making your enquiry
Q1: Is a deposit required to secure the booking?
A1: To secure your date, a no refundable deposit of £250.00 is required with the remaining balance being paid 10 weeks before the wedding. Once the deposit is paid we email your deposit paid invoice and contract with all the T&C’S which you sign and return back to us.
We also have an initial meeting and consultation before the wedding, and on the run-up to the day. This is currently done via a video call due to our diary being so busy- but we can arrange to meet in person if preferred.
The non-refundable deposit for the Video & Photo Packages is £400.00 (£200.00 to each supplier)
Each supplier will provide you with their own Invoices, Contract and T&C's.
Q2: What time do you arrive on the morning of the wedding?
A2: This will be discussed at the consultation, if we are not filming morning prep we normally arrive at least 45 minutes before the ceremony so that we can set up and get external and internal shots of the ceremony venue.
If we are filming morning prep then we arrive at least 1 hour and 30 minutes before the time of the ceremony.
Q3: How discreet are you on the day?
A3: We are exceptionally discreet when filming; this is what we pride ourselves on. We film in a relaxed natural style.
Although we do also like to pose our own shots different from the photographer and which work better on the final video. This is at your own discretion and also depending on timings on the day.
Q4: How long is the wedding presentation video and do we get to choose the music?

Highlight sneak peaks are around 5 minutes in length.- We normally use your first dance song for the highlight video.
