Frequently Asked Questions
Prices And Packages
There is one package and one price
Filming is until ten minutes after the first dance
Price is €950 (prices change, this is the price that you will pay if you book today, or if you
book within one week from when you check to see if your date is available)
What is your style?
I would describe my filming as very definitely documentary with a cutting edge look and up to date modern style!
For me, it's all about the events of the day and the people that were there.
Anyone watching your wedding video in the future will know the full story of the day with nothing left out.
Im not sure what the difference is between cinematic and documentary
How Long Will It Take For My Video To Be Ready?
Your video will be edited and the USB and DVDs made and it will be posted to you two weeks after your wedding, ready for when you arrive back !
How can you do this when other videographers are quoting 2 or 3 months?
Unlike many other videographers, I will film only one wedding a week, so I have the time set aside to edit your wedding the following week so I do not build up backlogs.
What type of training/experience have you?
I have photographed and videoed over 1000 weddings over the past 25 years.
I did my formal training at Bournville College Of Art in Birmingham.
Hold an Oxford Board qualification in photography.
Served my time under Terry Walsh, a senior producer for the BBC, then
running his own video production company in Moseley, Birmingham.
I moved to Ireland in 1999 and have been working here filming weddings ever

kilometers travelled on the wedding day
Dont assume that all videographers are all the same.
Here are afew questions to ask.
Experience...What year did you start filming weddings = 1984
How long have you been trading as a wedding videographer from your present
premises = 16 years
Are you professionally qualified or did you just pick it up as you went along
= Oxford Board, Photography
Will you be relaxed and confident at my wedding, do you know how to use your
gear without looking at it and will you know what's going to happen instinctively
Experience, how many weddings have you attended professionally = 1000+
What precautions do you take in case of equipment failure on the day,
what type of backup camera do you carry with you in case
your main camera breaks down is it a lesser quality than your main camera
= It's a Sony EX also
Do you keep a second car taxed and insured in case your main car shows signs of possible problems in the days leading up to a wedding = yes
Do you treat the sound recording with the same level of importance as the video, by using radio mikes and quality senheisser microphones = yes
Have you been assessed by a professional organization and have you been accepted as a member of that organization at member level or at a higher level
Yes Master Photographers Association, Licenciate Level
Do you offer a Un-Edited option?
If you are happy to carry out your own editing, then there is a filming
only option for €600
The footage will be mostly already colour graded for you, so its cuts
and audio levels that you will be in charge of.
Worth thinking about, if you have the basic ability.
FILMING AT THE BRIDES HOUSE
There is no extra charge for this and I am happy to include this for
you, but only if it is practical.
Please call me first to discuss this option. Only available if house is
within a reasonable distance from church..
Some brides want filming at the house, some brides don't, and want
this to be their own private time before the wedding with only the
Most times the photographer is at the house and the video at the
church, filming the guests and the groomsmen arriving, and all of
the pre-wedding fun at the church the bride would otherwise not
see! Phone me to discuss this option.
STAYING ON AFTER 11-00pm.
Bands usually start at 9-30pm, sometimes 10-00pm,
But If you want me to stay to later than 11-00pm,
the cost is + €100 for between 11-00 to 11-30pm.
