Hello and welcome!
I'm Neil and I am a full-time wedding filmmaker and photographer based in Chester, Cheshire in the North West of England, UK.
I love to create unique, quirky and spontaneous HD digital and vintage Super 8mm wedding vignettes that truly capture the soul of your big day.
I guess I'm not your or "traditional" wedding videographer. Let's be honest, who really wants a 3 or 4 hour wedding video anymore?! My HD digital and vintage Super 8mm wedding films are shot in a relaxed and natural way (absolutely no staged scenes or posing!) and then edited in a vignette style, which makes them super punchy, exciting and full of life! I want you to want to watch your wedding film over and over again and unlike wedding videography of old, which would present a detailed account of "everything that happened", I creatively distil the events of the whole day down to their most important, fun and striking moments.
Where are you based? Do you charge travel fees?
I'm based in Chester, Cheshire, in the North West of England but I will happily cover weddings across the whole of the UK and abroad. Travel expenses are included in the price for venues within a 2 hour drive (each way) of Chester. For UK venues further afield, please add £100. This is to cover additional travel and accommodation costs. If you are getting married abroad, please add £500 to the package cost for weddings in Europe or £800 for the rest of the world (this covers all expenses such as flights, accommodation, transfers etc.)
Do you need feeding on the day?
As a wedding is a long and often non-stop working day for me, a hot meal and soft drink served in a separate room to your wedding breakfast would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
Do you include the whole wedding ceremony and speeches uncut, with full audio?
With standard packages, the wedding ceremony and speeches will be presented in highlight form and set to music in the edit (so no sound is recorded). However, if having these in complete form with full audio is an absolute must for you, you can add these on at an additional cost of £150 each. The uncut ceremony and/or speeches will then be sent to you as separate movie files to your main highlights film. Please note that if you are opting for a Super 8mm package only, no sound is recorded here as the vintage cameras are silent!
If you are going for the HD digital wedding film option, please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery. If your are going for the vintage Super 8mm wedding film option, please allow up to 8 weeks. This is because processing and digitising the vintage film at a specialist lab takes a bit longer.
How do we book you?
If you would like to enquire about booking videography in the form of a HD digital or vintage Super 8mm film for your wedding day, please complete the form on the contact page with as much info as possible and I will be sure to get back to you as soon as I can. To secure a date, I require a booking fee of £250. This booking fee is non-refundable and will be taken off your final balance. The remainder of the balance would be due 8 weeks prior to the wedding date.
How far in advance do we need to book you?
Most couples tend to book their wedding videography 1-2 years in advance of their big day and as you can imagine, peak season dates get snapped up very quickly.
Are you insured?
Yes, I have both professional indemnity and public liability insurance. I am also fully CRB/DBS checked.
