Wedding Feature Films & Photography... with an edge
10 years ago, when we started it was kind of strange seeing all wedding video guys with great big video cameras on their shoulders walking around just filming anything without substance, then handing over a boring three-hour DVD disc filled full of long arduous footage without no story or substance. (nothing wrong with that at the time and in its day) but!
We then turned up on the scene with photographers DSLR’s cameras, slider, glide cam, drones and a new way of thinking in editing wedding films, adding colour grading, film stock emulation, professional audio and much more in the edit room to create our new-found wedding feature bride loving films.
We put all our new way of doing things into our shots and filming and word got around fast resulting in the new evolved modern bride asking for our services all over the UK and Europe. This has lead our company to fast become one of the top wedding feature film makers in the Northwest.
So with the first ten years over, the next ten years will not hold us back from progressing even more and creating emotional, creative, individual, engaging wedding films that will be unique every time we film for clients from all walks of life.
Every time we pass over a Capture Your Moments wedding feature film we are proud of our results and even prouder when we get emotional with all our clients with their tears and laughter and joy when they view their bespoke individual wedding feature film.
Do we travel?
The answer is yes, we travel all over the UK, Europe, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, France, Italy, America…
Like what you see?
Then we ask for a retainer fee of £250, this can be paid in one sum or three over three months via bank transfer. Then we send all details for the day such as booking forms, song lists, agreements etc. via mail.
Payments can be made regularly as you please throughout the year then 30 days before the date the full balance is due, payable by cash, bank transfer.
One month to two weeks before the wedding date we will ring yourselves and fine tune all plans quite simply.
What happens on the day of the wedding
Well we will have planned all week for your special day, we will locate the venue and church, look at the lighting in the rooms, film certain things around the venue/church and get our correct equipment that is needed for the day regarding your venue and rooms.
Depending on your package, we turn up at the location of your address and start our day’s filming the “Capture Your Moments way”
We dress smart in our Capture Your Moments T-shirts and smart black trousers.
We are quite discreet and unobtrusive so it’s not very often we dictate things, we leave that to the photographers. Natural footage is best so we tend to leave you alone and we prep the photographers to not be glued to your side! HA HA...
We use up to 4 to 6 cameras all doing different shots, this enhances the story, one camera could be on the grooms face the other on the bride’s face, one could be on the church reader whilst the other is on the priest etc. Lots of wedding video guys just use one camera this does not enhance the wedding story as one camera one shot.
Our main cameras are the latest small full HD DSLRs cameras on mono-pods that keep us moving discreetly around without fuss. We use a glide cam sometimes which gives us moving action shots and sliders that give Hollywood style slide shots in motion.
Professional audio is key to great sound and the best audio lapel mics are used for the speeches and vows. This is highly needed!!
Editing Equipment is usual Professional BBC standard, final cut pro and adobe premiere pro cs 6. Red Giant magic colour looks and Film Convert is used for colour enhancement & grading. Audio is sweetened via adobe audition.
Music for the film and trailer
You are hiring us as artists to create a cinematic wedding movie so music is very important, it moves the story forward with a certain flow, we try to find and use music that is modern, cinematic and timeless, however we do accommodate your musical requests so we give you a 200-song list and we ask you choose from these as well as some of your own. In all we ask for around 10 songs so we can look at the edit and see what goes well with your personalities and story. It’s a good thing to check all of our trailers songs that we use and even though you cannot imagine those songs in your film, trust us they work…
All music is licensed by ourselves at £200 pound a group of songs for your DVD. The final movie sneak preview trailer will be a song chosen by ourselves to fit the edit. This has to be done this way sorry because many many USA filmmakers have been fined heavily in court by music companies for using a current song. (Sorry)
The old days have gone! The boring three/four hours wedding video my dad got has well and truly finished (I hope) Nothing wrong with the old days because at least they had the day covered and it’s still lovely to reminisce.
Now we have an engaging emotional story telling wedding feature film, we like to call it a medium format movie roughly 45 minutes to one hour long, it may be slightly longer or slightly shorter depending on the edit. Don’t be fooled by companies saying they do short form movies. We tried this and the client said yes great but why is it so short, where is all the footage!! Do you really want a 6 to 12 minute wedding feature film end product ?? Nope.
We present your DVDs in our presentation personal boxes depending on your package with your DVD disc personally printed on. All DVDs are checked on three high quality Blu-Ray DVD players and discs are burned via professional adobe encore equipment. In ten years we have ever only had one return with a sticking problem but we found out it was a very old DVD player that could not play new DVD discs, not a problem we will replace when we receive the disc back from you.
Our DVD disc are copyrighted, unfortunately due to unforeseen copying but extra copies are very inexpensive so you only have to ask for extra copies.
Receiving your film
Depending on your package, usually the trailer mini film is done within 4 weeks (top package within two weeks for honeymoon priority edits) The main feature film is anything from 4 weeks to 12 weeks, busy periods maybe longer but usually 6 weeks.
When the trailer is done we privately message you via face book or by email for you to watch the trailer personally. After your permission, we will then use the trailer for our website and Facebook and Twitter pages. We will link the trailer where you like, also depending on your package we could link the full film for a small fee to send around the world or anywhere you would wish, with a dedicated video page, pass worded and secure to you and family only.
With all your meticulous planning and worry getting it right on the day, money has been well spent, the day went so quick, the day has finished, guests have eaten their meals and gotten drunk, the dress has been worn, the grooms suit sent back, everyone gone home, you have had your honeymoon and come home to only your rings on your fingers….
OH wait…. You clever people have booked a wedding cinematic feature film which is getting delivered next week and WOW what a trailer!!!
Relive those moments for years to come, the tears, the joys, the emotions, the things that still give you goose bumps you never actually saw on the day, relive those moments time and time again!!!
OH YOU ARE THE CLEVER ONE!!!
