Do I need a wedding Film?
Put aside the old notion of wedding video being a boring, cheesy and a 2, 3, or even 4 hour watch! Modern wedding videography has evolved into a must-have for today’s brides and grooms. These are luxury films that have very high production value with a cohesive narrative and a fully colour graded feature film. I want to create a unique video of your wedding day that will be cherished not only by you but for future generations of your family.
Is a 25 minute film long enough?
Yes! You will not need to touch the fast forward button! What I create aims to be entertaining to you both, your family, and your friends. It will be re-watchable and bring enjoyment each time. Traditional wedding video has a place as a basic historic documentary of the day. It’s not designed to be entertaining however and it’s unlikely you will watch a long full length video too often.
I offer documentary edits to complement the feature, you can of course get a film of the full wedding ceremony and the full speeches – but it’s the feature film you will be proudest of and the one you will watch the most.
What’s your style of filming on the wedding day?
Discreet, relaxed, unposed and professional. There’s no big TV style cameras, bulky tripods, tv screens on the floor, or big bright hot lights – you probably won’t really notice me there at all! I will capture moments as they naturally unfold so it’s ideal to go about your day as if I’m not even there! Just pretend I’m another friend that’s at your wedding!
How long do you stay?
I don’t believe in missing out on the main features of the day so I like to start early and finish late! Typically I will get to the bridal preparations about 2-3 hours before the wedding ceremony and then stay right through until the first few dances. A wedding could be 12 hours from say 10am-10pm. If you need different coverage just let me know and we can customise a quote for you. Some collections offer different hours of coverage but to make sure everything is covered 12 hours is usually ideal.
How long will the film creation process take and when will I see my wedding video?
It’s good to know a rough timeline for the creative edit process. Actual editing time will be in the range of 40 hours and it is a time consuming process but to obtain the best results I always put the time needed into it. Typically I endeavor to have your wedding film, trailer, and documentary films created within 4-8 weeks.
Who will film my day?
Jason McGarrigle is the main videographer and will be the primary shooter on your day. In cases where a second videographer is needed we will arrange.
Do you cover Destination Weddings?
Yes, I love destinations weddings. I’m happy to film an Irish wedding Video in Donegal or anywhere Nationwide all over Ireland, anywhere in Europe, or at any world destination wedding venue that you have chosen! Please get in touch to check your date. I will be happy to customise a quote for you. I would require travel & accommodation to be added to this quote. But I’m happy for you to organise this if you wish and provide you with a quote that covers everything.
Do you need a meal at the reception?
A hot dinner is always appreciated! But no need to add me to the table plan I’m more than happy to have bar food.
How do we secure our date?
Firstly we need to check the date so please get in touch via our contact page. Let me know as much information as possible to see if we are a good match for each other as I only take on a limited number of weddings and hopefully we are able to help.
