How Much for a Wedding Video?……

It’s 6 months away from your big day and you and partner have just decided on a professional wedding videographer.

One of the biggest concerns is how much budget you have left? Hiring a professional wedding video company to film your wedding should not be about getting one for a cheap price, it should be about what you want from your own wedding film. 

It’s great that you have even considered getting a wedding video at all, 90% of couples hire a professional photographer for their ceremony and reception, whilst only 1 in 3 also hire a professional videographer. You have spent at least 2 years planning and saving for your big day, why would you not have it filmed as well?

There are so many different wedding video companies around who offer different styles; point and shoot style, documentary style and cinematic style. We can call them wedding videos, wedding films or cinematic films. They all do the same thing, capture your day and tell a story. The best way to get an idea of what wedding film you would like is to look around on the internet at different vendors, watch different wedding films, speak to family members and friends for recommendations. This is how you are going to choose the right wedding videographer for you.

I know many couples who have spent £2000 – £2500 on a wedding photographer. Photographs are incredibly important, they will be admired for years to come. Looking through albums or seeing your favourite image hanging on the wall, they can capture those spontaneous moments throughout the day. A wedding video can let you see and hear the emotion. Being able to watch your first dance, to watch it like everyone else watched, is, well, priceless. Being able to watch family sharing your day, then to share the again day with future generations is something I believe to be one of the greatest things a wedding film can offer.

 30% of a wedding videographers time is actually only spent filming the wedding day, the rest is back in the studio creating the ‘story’. From importing the days footage, sorting only the best shots, creatively editing the sequences together, fine tuning the edit, adding audio and sound tracks to make a beautiful story. Creating a film that shows the emotion and joy that you felt on the day

So please don’t be shocked by the prices of videographers today, they put as much work and effort into producing high quality wedding films as much as wedding photographer does creating your photographs and albums. They also have to pay for music licences, public liability, drone licences and investing in top of the range equipment. Just like a photographer. Not to mention the one thing you cannot put a price on, their experience!

Wedding Videos have come a long way since shoulder mounted cameras and big lights. Today’s prices will reflect this. So when you’re looking for a wedding videographer please don’t start with ‘how much?’ in mind, think about what you want your wedding film to be about and what you want it to look like. Then fined the best wedding video company, that is going to make that for you..

Kind Regards

Jane and Michaels wedding highlights from St Canterbury Church to Meols Hall, Southport. After meeting Jane & Michael at our pre wedding meet up, we were really looking forward to filming wedding. They where both relaxed and fun to be around and this was really evident on their wedding day, everything was chilled and relaxed at the Bridal preparations all the way through to the first dance. Everyone had a great time and really let they hair down with the evenings entertainment.

 


Wedding highlights from Rachel & Jonathon’s wedding day at the fabulous Peckforton Castle. We started the day with Rachel and her bridemaids feeling the excitement start to build, it built that much everyone lost track of time and ended yp being 3o mins late, but it is a Bride prerogative after all. After al the the years we have been filming weddings we have never had a service then straight onto a blessing. Leaving the Great Hall, everyone crossed the grounds to the small Church on the castle grounds , where Rachel and Johnathon marriage had a blessing. We hope you enjoy the highlights, full film coming soon.

Samantha & Ryan were wed in the fantastic Vincent Hotel in Southport. Friends and family gathered to see Samantha’s grandad walk her down to the isle to a slightly nervous groom. The weather was great and the so was the atmosphere, apart from a few a Liverpool FC supporters who had to get use to the idea that they would not be able to watch the Champions League final.  Here is the trailer of the day, full film coing soon.

 

 

A review by Samantha & Ryan

We cannot thank Liverpool Film Company enough for our amazing wedding video! From first meeting Graeme face to face we knew we had booked the right company. He was really nice, laid back but still very professional. We felt so at ease and comfortable. Receiving the trailer was a lovely touch before the actual video was ready. It was a beautiful clip to show family and friends. Im so happy we got a videographer to film our amazing wedding day. We have watched the video so many times and its lovely to relive the whole day again. Graeme captured it perfectly. It was the best day of our lives and we’ve got the video to look back on. We would highly recommend to anyone who’s thinking of booking a wedding videographer.

Thank you so much! Samantha & Ryan x

James and Laura had their whole day at The Mere Brook House on The Wirral. All the years we have been filming , we have never been to this little gem of a hotel. The house is situated in its own grounds extending to almost four acres that include a beautiful garden with sunken dell sheltered by mature trees, paddocks and a woodland area beyond that runs down to the Mere Brook. If you get a chance, click the link for more information .

We asked James & Laura to participate in a new style of wedding video we are wanting to do. We asked James and Laura to write letters to each other , to be read out on the morning of their wedding day, to which they both obliged. We get a lot of inspiration form other wedding film makers across the UK and abroad. We noticed that no other wedding company (or one we have found in the UK at least) ask each couple to do this. We think it offers a more personal, touch to their own wedding film.

James and Lauren had no photographer at their wedding, which again was a first for us. We noticed a more relaxed flow to the day,  no hustle and bustle of getting people out doors then back in doors, it was so relaxed. James and Laura did think having a wedding video was still important to have, to capture their memories of the day. I have included the message that Laura sent to me after seeing the film.

Hi Graeme,
We love it! Thank you so much it’s great.
It’s so nice to watch things back as the day goes so fast and there is so much you miss.
Many thanks
Laura
