Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, David Edwards Films offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

What is your favourite aspect of the wedding video?

Is it the walking down the aisle? The dancing at the end of the night? Something else?

David Edwards Films

My favourite aspect of the wedding video and the most memorable is the spontaneity you capture in those candid moments. 

What are the different styles of wedding video?

David Edwards Films

Most videographers these days are filming in a Cinematic Style which is the term given for videos filmed using modern DSLR Cameras as opposed to video cameras. For the editing of these videos you'll find popular styles include a Creative Short Film which is a 15 minute version, a highlights reel used mainly for social media sharing and long version typically viewed by close family on special occasions. 

Can I choose my own music for my wedding video?

David Edwards Films

I provide a form for my clients to provide me with a list of music to be included in the final product with preferences to which song to use on their highlight film or creative short film. 

Something to be aware of is that often when clips are shared online, algorithms will detect if a copyright protected song has been used and this may flag it for review. YouTube is notorious for this while Vimeo has been more lenient over the years. Facebook can flag copyright protected song too. Theres also a variety of music licensing services out there which provides good quality music for online use. You generally have more freedom on videos for private use as they are not in the public arena, therefore your choices are virtually limitless for song choice.  

How long are wedding video highlight reels?

David Edwards Films

Highlight reels are generally no longer than between 3 - 5 minutes. these days they are used primarily for social media sharing amongst your friends and family. Longer versions exist of course however they (in my packages) become Creative Short Films. These can be up to 15 minutes in length and are best suited to showcase your wedding to close friends and family. 

What does the standard videography package include?

David Edwards Films

I break my videography packages into 3 categories.

1. Camera time

2. Editing / Post Production

3. Materials / Deliverables

My standard videography packages include 8 hours camera time a Full Length Version onto USB, Hard Drive or Blu-Ray. There are optional upgrades including a Highlights reel for social media, Creative Short Film (15 min approx) or Ceremony & Speeches Version.  

if i hire a videographer just for the ceremony will it be cheaper than the whole day?

David Edwards Films

Realistically a videographer would like to be booked for the whole day as it takes his/her services out of the equation for bigger jobs. Videographers starting out will be chomping at the bit so to speak and offer you basic Ceremony only services and if that is all you require then this may be the best option. However if you are looking for something of a high standard with a reputable provider it's unlikely they will be keen to jump on a ceremony only job unless it worked around an existing job. Weekday weddings would have more flexibility as opposed to peak days such as Saturday.

Why should I get a videographer if I'm already having a photographer?

I'm on the fence about videography and need that extra push. Can you tell me why I should have both a photographer and a videographer at my wedding?

David Edwards Films

Cindy here's a way of looking at it. I know the ladies in my family have been fanatical about the Royal Weddings over the past 6 months or so. Imagine if you only got to see the images in the magazines and not the coverage. If you were anything like my family, they were glued to the TV. Video is the only way to re-live an event.
