WEDDING, EVENT & SPECIAL DAY VIDEOGRAPHY
Friendly - Reliable - Affordable - Experienced - Perceptive
A LUNDSCAPES film is much more than just a record of a day. It is a high quality video that, we hope, will give you great pleasure and be treasured.
Previous clients have said how glad they are to have chosen a video for their special day - some have even organised parties to show their film to a wider audience! It is a great investment!
Whilst a favourite uncle, aunt, friend or colleague may offer to film your event for free - and might be quite adept at videoing - a professional job will always be so much better.
If this truly is one of the most important days of your - or another's - life, let your friend or relative enjoy the event as a guest, and trust the experts from our experienced team to cover your:
- Wedding or civil partnership
- Christening or naming ceremony
- Birthday party
- Anniversary celebration
- Family get-together
- Club get-together
- Live event
- Record of daily family life
We can make a video to suit your requirements and budget - from a short film to a longer production - using your favourite music, if you like.
We will record your special event with skill, care and creativity, and as discreetly and unobtrusively as possible, keeping your wishes at the heart of the process.
We'll be realistic, flexible, friendly and sensitive, and charge a fair amount for our services - bearing in mind the skilled labour, equipment, transport, copyright and other costs. We do ask that you sign our terms and conditions before we start planning, and pay for your video at this point. Our contracts keep things simple, straightforward and fair. They are a record of what has been agreed, and feature many of the points on this page.
Our diary does get booked up many months in advance, so please do contact us as soon as possible, in order to avoid disappointment.
We advise a free, no obligation, meeting to discuss your requirements. If you prefer, this can be by email or phone. We can then quote you for our services (see terms and conditions below)
Our expenses include our materials, insurance, travel and electricity, copyright clearance, administration, plus the cost, maintenance and renewal of our equipment, and, of course, the skilled labour involved.
We advise using two people to record a large event, such as a wedding. It is worth remembering that a typical video will take many more hours to edit than film. However, at the end of the process you will have a unique, professionally made video of your special event.
The length of your video is up to you. For a wedding, the majority of our previous clients opted for a programme of edited highlights - a more watchable 30-60 minutes, for example. However, you could always choose a short film - say 10-15 minutes.
If your budget is tight, have you thought of adding a video to your list of potential gifts to be paid or part-paid by relatives or friends?
Ideally, we would like to be present at your rehearsal, run-through and / or to inspect the venue ahead - this will really assist with our planning, for example, regarding camera positions and sound. Additionally, other issues and potential problems can be discussed and ironed-out.
We normally use at least two high definition video cameras. Our equipment is small and lightweight, in order to be as unobtrusive as possible. Usually, we do not require additional microphones, lighting or a mains power supply.
We will not interrupt your proceedings for filming purposes or to "stage" any scenes but instead use our experience to capture the action naturally. However, we do require your co-operation in giving advance cues when certain elements will occur - such as speeches or cutting a cake.
We will work with your photographer and other event staff to showcase your day at its best. Past clients have praised us for our unobtrusiveness, flexibility and sensitivity during their big day.
We can film some or all of...
1. Bride's preparations
Typically including shots of hair and make-up being adjusted, the dress / outfit, photographs taken.
2. Church, registry office or other venue
Guests arriving, the service * (if permission given), photographs being taken, mingling of guests, confetti and couple's departure.
3. Wedding Breakfast
Video clips of welcome drinks, mingling, the "line-up", photographs being taken, some footage of the meal and venue, with the speeches featured too * Also, the cutting of the cake (if occurs at this time).
4. Evening Reception
Cutting the cake (if not above), some footage of the evening buffet, mingling, the first dance.
* Unless specifically agreed ahead, the video will feature highlights of your day and, for timing purposes, a wedding service and speeches will be shorter in length in the finished video. All editing is undertaken sensitively, to include the key moments and provide a flavour of the content as a whole.
Our editing process takes a considerable
time to complete, and our schedule will also depend on our other ongoing projects. Your video will normally be ready in two to three weeks from the date of recording.
Editing is time-consuming, not only because of the volume of footage to transfer to our editing system, review and then cut, but also as we pride ourselves on doing a precise, thorough, professional job.
Please note - we can only use Lundscapes footage and stills in our videos, cannot accomodate clients in our edit suite and are unable to enter into further editing discussions once we have finished the video (unless as a new order). However, we work hard to create the video that you request.
Most clients request that their finished film be presented on a USB memory stick / pen / flash drive. This flexible media format also allows you to enjoy the full High Definition picture quality. Alternatively, we can create a standard DVD or Blu-ray disc.
The Small Print
We aim to be as fair, flexible and sensitive as possible. We would like you to be as delighted with the process as your finished film!
All clients must sign to accept our terms and conditions, and also submit their full payment prior to us beginning our planning work.
A copy of our full terms and conditions is available on request, and we will make you aware of these in our initial discussions. Also included is information about your right to cancel, what happens if your plans change or if, in an emergency, we are unable to provide our services.
