I’m always looking for alternative and thrifty ways for you to enjoy your special day without ending up in a crippling amount of debt afterwards. Edit your Wedding is a newly established company that ticks the box perfectly.
Wedding Videography is becoming more and more popular as brides search for news ways to document their wedding day, beyond just images. With an estimated 10% of the average wedding budget being set aside for photography packages alone, often in excess of £1000.00, having a videographer attend too is a luxury that many couples simply can’t afford.
I had a look on a range of UK-based videography websites and found a whole host of different packages on offer. Most seem reasonable, until you look at the small print, and a visit to the brides home is suddenly an extra £50.00, having music accompany the footage, an extra £75.00, and you realise the good price is because they’re only attending your ceremony, and not the reception too.
Edit your Wedding offers a genuine, high quality alternative that is affordable, practical and most importantly, an absolute hoot. The concept is simple; three days before your wedding, you’ll receive 4 HD Video Cameras in the post, along with some hints and tips on filming techniques. This gives you a few days to perfect your filming skills, and the rest is up to you! Each Camera is capable of recording up to 2 hours of footage, leaving you plenty of space to record throughout your wedding day.
After your wedding, simply return the Cameras in the post, and Edit your Wedding can work their magic. They will edit the footage into a beautiful video, that has been captured for you by your nearest and dearest. The video will have music to accompany it, but you’ll also receive all of the original footage too, with some moments that might not have made the cut.
I caught up with Hayley who helps to run Edit your Wedding to find out what happens behind the scenes at this innovative company.
So who’s behind Edit your Wedding?
Everyone that works for us or with us has a background of both Film & Television Production plus Wedding Photography and Videography.
This all sounds good, but how much is it going to cost me?
In terms of the services we offer, we like to keep it very simple. 1 x Package = 4 x Cameras, Editing, Downloads of original video and full original material.
The price is: £499 and occasionally we do special offers with discounts of up to 50%. The only way to find out about these is to follow us on Twitter @edityourwedding
You say you’re newly established, does that mean I can expect your prices to increase as you become more popular?
We don’t ever want to increase the price and put it out of reach for couples working to a tight budget. We decided to set up after spotting a gap in the market for a simple, cheap and fun alternative to Wedding Videography, which can be very expensive for Brides on a budget!
Where do you see the company going in the future?
We see the company becoming huge in terms of quantity of wedding videos we produce. We’ve already taken several bookings in our first month and we hope to progress to taking at least 20 per month on a regular basis. We don’t have any limit to the amount of bookings we can take because if we get double booked on a particular date we purchase more cameras so we can cover as many weddings as is necessary.
