FAQ

We appreciate that planning your Wedding can be a stressful time for you. To help you with booking a Wedding Videographer, we have provided a few of the Frequently Asked Questions we often receive.

What type of Wedding Videos do you offer?

Our choice of style is Cinematic but with a Documentary final video in mind. Some Videographers only offer a short Highlights Video for the same price. We, at Video4aDay, feel that many couples want a longer video as a lasting memento of their big day. However, as the current trend is shifting to shorter edited videos, we do include a 4 minute Highlights video free with every package.
This gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to watch a video that covers everything, but also gives you a video you can share with family and friends.

How long have you been filming Weddings?

We filmed our first Wedding in 2005, but established our Business in 2010 and have filmed over 400 Weddings since at a wide variety of locations and venues across the south of England and beyond.

How many Videographers and Cameras are used to film our Wedding?

All packages include filming by 1 cameraman with 3-5 cameras used to capture your day. Unmanned cameras will be set up for the Ceremony, Speeches and 1st Dance.
For an extra £400 an additional cameraman can be provided to capture the Groom Preps alongside the Bridal Preps and to provide additional manned coverage for the rest of the day.

What areas do you cover?

We cover most of the South of England, but are prepared to travel all over the UK and even abroad for the right Wedding. Feel free to ask us if your Wedding falls further afield.

Can we meet up to discuss our requirements with you?

Yes we are happy to meet up to go through your personal requirements for your Wedding Video. However, we do ask that if you are based more than an hour away from our home location of Reading; that we find a mutually convenient meeting point midway.

What deposit is needed?

A £100 deposit is needed on booking.

When is final payment due?

Final payment is due 2 weeks before the Wedding. You can pay in instalments should you wish.

How quickly do we get our Videos?

The Teaser is released approx 2 weeks after the Wedding. Remaining Videos will be sent over a period of 8 to 12 weeks for the first draft.

Can we use our own choice of songs?

Yes, we ask for songs from you, which are used in the final Full Length Video and Shortform Video. However if you’re stuck for choices, we can provide ideas or use music from our library.

Can we have a copy of all the footage?

Yes, for a £80 fee, this footage can be released. We can provide your Wedding footage uncut. However we ask that you provide a HDD for us to copy the files over and return to you. I can supply the actual RAW Files themselves, but they are for editing only, and will only play in Editing software that supports them.

Do you keep backups of our Videos?

RAW files are deleted 1 month after you have received all your remaining copies. However a copy of your videos at maximum resolution are kept for 3 years in case further copies are needed.
