Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Why should I use the one service provider for both photography and videography for my wedding?

Using the same service provider enables a more cohesive and comprehensive coverage of your wedding day. While Cupid Weddings can work alongside another service provider, we prefer to use a team who have a solid understanding of the intricacies of both photography and videography. As we use 4 camera angles for filming the ceremony and speeches for example, it is crucial that the photographer understands where these cameras are placed so that they are not blocked at crucial moments. Similarly, the couple's photo shoot should be led by the photographer, as this part of the day is not so important for video. 

Why do I need my videos delivered in 4K?

4K televisions are now widely available, and they provide a resolution which is 4 times larger than HD (high definition). In a few years HD will be an obsolete resolution, so you don't want your videos to be out of date when your children and grandchildren are watching them in years to come. Most video production houses will not deliver your videos in 4K (although they may offer 4K recording). The reason they do not offer this is simply because 4K video cameras are more expensive, and editing 4K videos requires a powerful computer, with an expensive CPU and graphics card. Cupid Weddings delivers all videos in 4K resolution as standard.

What is a pre-wedding shoot?

A pre-wedding shoot takes place weeks or months before the wedding date. This allows photos and video to be taken of the couple in a more relaxed and casual setting. It is a great extra to have photos of the couple in clothes they normally wear in their day-to-day lives. An interview of the couple talking about how they met can be used to create a Love Story Video. Just imagine your grandchildren watching the Love Story Video in 50 years time, and being able to learn all about how their grandparents met!

My husband and I got married in May when we we were in lockdown. John accommodated our request to not only postpone our wedding celebration to next year, he kindly agreed to photograph and record our ceremony. He is so professional, he was well prepared with all his equipment and was so easy to work with. He knows how to guide you along to get the perfect shot. Our photos were so amazing, our family and friends still rave about them - he also released them quicker than expected. Our minute video teaser was so beautiful, I still tear up when I watch it. I'm looking forward to seeing the full video when he captures our wedding celebration next year.

We HIGHLY recommend John as a wedding videographer! In the lead up to our wedding, he was absolutely lovely to deal with – he was organised, friendly and professional. Our wedding day itself was literally turned upside down by Covid-19 and John’s flexibility, creativity, positivity and efficiency were a huge help to us! Even in the whirlwind of our wedding day, John captured so many wonderful moments of us and our guests, and we will treasure these memories forever. We are so glad we chose to have a videographer at our wedding and can’t wait to share the videos with our family and friends – especially those who unfortunately could not join us on the day due to the pandemic. John is a brilliant wedding videographer and a genuinely lovely person.

John our photographer from Cupid Weddings was a breeze to work with, the custom package he made for our wedding celebration over 3 days. He is very professional, has the very best gear for all your photography needs, and the best team to work with. I would definitely recommend Cupid Weddings to all my friends! Thank you for a memorable day with us!
