What will you receive?
With each Package the couple will receive a beautiful and creative 'Highlights Video' approximately 5 minutes long and all the 'RAW Footage' which is usually
60 - 120 minutes in duration. The couple will receive both these videos on an USB stick which can be shared with friends and family in the comfort of your own home or on social media as you wish.
What is a Highlights Video?
A Highlights Video is a creatively edited video to music which contains all the best parts of your wedding day.
What is RAW Footage?
The RAW Footage is everything that is filmed during the day, put in order of how it happened. Full Ceremony, Full Speeches etc. This video isn't edited to music and therefore all the sounds recorded during the day will be authentic.
What equipment do you use?
Please visit this site for a full list of the equipment I use - kit.com/benspowell/wedding-videographer-gear
How do you record audio?
During the Ceremony a small clip on mic will be attached to the Groom and a main mic will be placed by the Vicar/Registrar. This of course is none intrusive but guarantees perfect and clear audio.
During the Speeches a microphone will be place on the table to capture these priceless moments with clarity.
All other audio will be captured via the microphone on the camera.
How many people will film the wedding?
Ben will do all the filming on the day, sometimes an assistant will come as a set of extra hands. If you do require a seconded videographer, please enquire with us.
Why do all you venue shots look great in the video?
