Full Description
We've filmed weddings all over the country, in all kinds of venues, for people with all kinds of budgets, and we’ve always loved how a couple’s personalities can be threaded through the day; sometimes these things are planned, like your theme for the table names or your music choices. But it’s also things like the quiet shared moments with your nearest and dearest in the build-up, or the thing that didn’t quite go as planned but made you laugh anyway, or the no-nonsense bridesmaid getting unexpectedly choked up. These are the things we’ll be looking for when we’re making the film of your special day. We get a lot of compliments about how unobtrusive we are on the day, and we take great pride in the fact that we are often asked back to work for friends and relations of previous couples - it’s always lovely to see familiar faces (as well as pregnancy bumps or new additions to families!) from past bookings. We take tremendous pride in our work and our prices are all based on the time and care we’ll be putting into the finished product. We offer a bespoke package service so you get a video or series of videos that are tailor-made for you, but we also have price options as a starting point to work from. For example: Full day coverage (11am until 9pm) = £1015*. This includes... - Full-length ceremony video - Full-length speeches video - Highlight video (roughly 5 minutes long) - Aerial footage of the venue** - 3 copies on eco-friendly USB sticks, with upgrade options - Online video hosting - Option to add pre-wedding time capsule video *These prices are for weddings within a 50 mile radius of York. **Aerial footage is dependent on favourable weather and permission from your venue. Get in touch to discuss your special day! We support marriage equality and are LGBTQIA+ inclusive.

Your Yorkshire Wedding
FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Our second ever wedding was for the Duchess of Cornwall's son, Tom Parker Bowles - we had better access than the BBC!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

This is a cheat (more than 5 adjectives), but a photographer once described us as "epic observers of people" - we're always looking for the little moments that tell your story. And we try not to take ourselves too seriously!

What about your business are you most proud of?

The feedback we get is always really nice. As well as being there on the day itself we also spend hours and hours on the edit and by the time you get to the end, you sort of feel a little bit in love with them both, so when they see the finished product and they tell you how happy they are, it really means a lot! Likewise, when you know someone was really nervous beforehand and a little camera-shy, to have them say they felt really at ease with us and happy with the results gives us a massive amount of satisfaction.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Remember that it's YOUR day, have a wedding that reflects you as individuals. Also, remember that the day will fly by in a blur; make sure you get a photographer and filmmakers that you trust and who's work you love. That way you'll be able to re-live it all over and over again, and enjoy any little moments you missed on the day.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

It's too hard to pick a favourite! We always keep our eye out - and our camera ready - for the little moments that make a wedding unique to the couple though!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We generally send a few emails back and forth to chat with the couple and find out what they're looking for and answer any questions they might have etc. Once we've worked out a price for the film that they want, we'll send over a booking form with extra info on (and questions about their favourite films etc) and get a deposit to reserve the date for them. Sometimes we'll pop over for a cup of tea to chat in person, or we can schedule a video call so you can put a face to the name. Sometimes we film pre-wedding interviews where the couple will talk about how they met, how the proposal went, and where they see themselves in 10 years time - things like that which will be a great little time capsule to look back on in years to come. If required we'll come along to see the venue beforehand but that's usually not necessary. On the day we arrive with enough time to say hello again and meet your bridesmaids/groomsmen and the venue staff etc, and after that you'll probably barely notice us. After the day itself, we'll get stuck into editing the footage. If you've opted for a highlights video, we love to share these on our social media and we'll give you the link to make it easy to share with your friends and family - we can also upload the extended films if you like. Not long after this you'll receive the USBs in the post, with all your videos on. Eco-friendly USB sticks are included as standard in our prices and there's the option to swap for DVD or BluRay if that suits you better, or you can pay a little extra to get a beautiful personalised USB package - ask us about this if you want to know more!

What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?

We offer our couples the chance to pick the music for their video. We love it when someone picks something slightly obscure because you just know has a specific memory attached to it.

Describe how you got into videography.

I've always been interested in telling stories using whatever medium I have to hand - going all the way back to making stop motion films with my childhood toys and a Super8 cine camera. Shooting and editing a wedding is like telling the story of one of the most important days in somebody's life, I love it. - Adam
