Frequently Asked Questions

ALTHOUGH WE LIVE AND BREATHE WEDDINGS…

We completely understand this may be your first time organising one. Asking plenty of questions is important! If your questions aren’t answered below or if you simply prefer to talk. Or even if you can’t find what you’re looking for we are only an email away. We are also very happy to arrange a call / video call if you can’t get to us in central Milton Keynes. Although we’d love to have you for a coffee and a chat…

WHAT IS 360° FILMING?

We place our cutting-edge technology cameras at strategic points to collect the film footage. The cameras are remotely operated and our operators will sit discreetly to one side. From here they will control the cameras remotely via a mobile device.

HOW CAN WE VIEW OUR 360° FILM?

You can view your film on any mobile device, any computer or on many newer model smart TV’s. However, the most immersive experience will come from the Oculus Go VR Headset that we provide to you.

Watching the 360° content in a high-end VR headset is breath-taking. This is when you will feel as though you are back in your wedding day!

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

We use full High-Definition 360° professional cameras as standard which include 360° surround sound mic systems. Depending on your requirements we may also use a variety of extra equipment.

On top of this, we mic up the ceremony and the speeches separately using discreet lapel mics that are hidden away.

We use high-quality web-enabled cameras and fast processing computers for live streaming. All of our equipment is regularly serviced and of the highest spec.

HOW DO YOU SHOOT?

Our team consists of professional filmmakers who have credits filming for TV, feature film and independent moviemaking as well as an established wealth of experience creating film for weddings.

We operate the cameras remotely and as such, as filmmakers, we are discreet and require no posing or setting the scene. 360° filming works because the camera becomes the viewer – whatever the camera can see in 360° is exactly what the viewer will see when watching the film.

During your ceremony, we place a small camera close to you and the registrar or celebrant (we operate this camera discreetly from around 10 feet away).

HOW LONG WILL THE FILM I GET BE?

When you book us you get two films, a trailer set to beautiful music which is around 3 – 4 minutes long and a feature film. Our feature films are much longer than a standard wedding film because we include the entire ceremony and the entire speeches as well as the edited footage from the rest of your day so that you don’t miss anything. We tell the story of your day from beginning to end and this means your feature film will usually be an hour or longer.

WHAT IS YOUR TURN AROUND TIME FOR THE EDITED VIDEO?

Editing 360° video to a high specification is our specialty and we guarantee your finished video within 8 weeks of your wedding day.

We are able to offer a faster edit option where we will put in the extra ‘after hours’ time to get your piece to you faster.

WHEN WILL YOU BE ABLE TO START OFFERING VR 360° STREAMING?

This depends entirely on how fast the technology takes to reach our perfectionist levels of image quality. We can stream in 360° now as long as you are happy to accept that even a 4k 360° image is not going to look as sharp as your 4k TV at home! The technology just isn’t quite there yet.

Live streaming in 360° also requires extremely high amounts of data so we’ll need a speedy internet connection!

Please do send us a message if you are interested in being one of our early adopters.

DO YOU TAKE STILL PHOTOS?

Our co-founder Andy has 15 years of wedding photography experience and also runs Andy Warner Photography. His work is incredible and highly sought out – if you are interested in booking him through us you can contact us here or speak to him directly over at his website.

WHEN DO I PAY?

You will need to pay a deposit of £250. This is non-refundable and payable at the time of booking and at this stage your date is 100% guaranteed. The balance must be cleared no later than 30 days before the date of your wedding.

We are able to offer a monthly direct debit option or balance in full.

If for any reason your wedding is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances more than 6 months in advance of your date you will be refunded the full amount minus deposit.

In the unlikely event that we cannot film your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, you will be fully refunded.

WHERE DO YOU WORK?

We film globally and many of our customers wed overseas. We do work all over the UK and all prices are inclusive if you are in the UK.

For all customers, travel and board will be added to the price of the booking if the wedding is more than 30 miles from Central Milton Keynes.

DO WE NEED TO FEED THE TEAM?

Usually, our team will consist of 2 people.

We do require our team to be included in the catering because we are usually starting work a few hours before we join you and will be working for many hours after we leave you. It’s a long day and if we need to leave the site to go and eat that’s less time we are available to you.

CAN WE MEET YOU BEFORE OUR WEDDING DAY?

Of course! We are very happy to schedule in a meeting and if logistics don’t allow this we make full use of digital space and will arrange a video call with you in true Virtual Weddings style!
