Much Love Film Co, FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Should your question not be listed below and you require further information, please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to assist and answer.

What style do your wedding films follow?

We specialise in short form wedding films - which means our shooting style is intended to be very cinematic, with the morning preparations, photo session and evening party dancing shot subjectively with creativity, not coverage in mind. Your ceremony and wedding breakfast speeches will be shot in their entirety and supplied as a separate addition although in your main wedding film elements will obviously feature. If you are looking for a traditional, documentary style wedding video Much Love Films may not be the right choice for you.

What areas do you cover?

We cover the whole of Essex but will happily travel anywhere in the UK and abroad although outside Essex and the Home Counties we charge for petrol / travel fees and overnight accommodation where applicable.

What equipment do you use?

We use a range of Canon DSLR cameras and lenses, cinematic tools including sliders and flyers, portable cranes and a host of shotgun and lapel microphones to capture the audio. Don't worry though, its not our intention to turn your wedding into a film set - our equipment is small and discreet enough for us to remain unobtrusive and make us look like regular photographers.

Do we need to ask permission to film at our chosen venue?

Yes - It is always the client's responsibility to check permission (although it is rare that venues object).

Do you carry insurance?

Yes - We have full public liability insurance.

Do we need to pay a deposit?

Yes - Beyond 30 days from your wedding date a non-refundable 30% deposit and completion of our booking form is needed to secure your wedding date with us (with the balance due 30 days before your wedding date). If your wedding date is within 30 days of booking the full fee will be required to secure the date. We would always recommend couples to take out wedding insurance in the unlikely event of you cancelling your wedding.

How long will you be with us?

Your full day. We always discuss beforehand the planning of the day but would intend to be with you as the bridal preparations take place through till 9.00pm. Extra evening coverage can be provided at an additional cost should you wish for us to continue late into the night. Although not expected, refreshments and sustenance would be greatly appreciated as working days can last beyond 12 hours.

How long will our movie be?

This depends entirely on which package you choose. We have 4 lengths of movie to choose from - 15, 25, 35 and 45 minutes. All will include elements of your day; from bridal and groom preparations through to early evening dancing - its just the longer the movie you choose, the more fantastic footage will be included! You will also receive full complete versions of your ceremony and speeches and your wedding movie trailer. This trailer will also be hosted online for you, your family and friends to share all at your own convenience.

Can we choose our own music?

We prefer to have complete creative control of the edit and that includes the music - its just we know emotively what works best with the pacing and flow of the story - although we are happy to listen to suggestions and genres you may prefer.

How long before we see our movie?

The edit is something we pride ourselves on and can take time. We endeavour to complete your movie within 8 weeks but during busy periods it can take up to 12 weeks.

Who owns copyright and can I order additional copies of the movie?

Any music featured or added to your film is subject to copyright law and requires clearance. All copyright licence fees are observed and included with your film. The copyright for your finished wedding film remains with us. Of course, additional copies of your wedding film may be purchased through us. USB Drive and smaller versions for mobiles and tablets are all available as extras.

We love the way you make and package the wedding film like a movie - do you offer anything else?

Yes - All of our wedding movies are presented in a DVD box just like a Hollywood movie with full titles and credits given to the wedding party - we can also supply framed movie posters and thank you cards.

Our wedding is an multicultural wedding - do you cater for a longer service?

Yes - because of the differing lengths of some traditional multicultural weddings we are happy to discuss and quote you on a bespoke basis.

We want to know more / book - what's the next step?

Please get in touch, either by email via our contact page or give us a call. We'll then arrange a meeting, preferably at our studio in Leigh on Sea, Essex where we can go through more details of your fabulous day and even show you a full length 35 minute movie so you can truly get a feel for what we can do for you both.

Kind Words

Just wanted to send you an email to say how much we like the video, it's really really great. You've done a fantastic job, and we are so pleased with it. Your style of putting this together is excellent - so much better and easier to watch than 'normal' wedding videos! And the background music is good too!!Dave & Nicole

If you are looking for a fantastic videographer then this is the company for you. We were thrilled with the final product as were our family. We had a small wedding and so for those that couldn't make it, this lasting memory was able to be shared with them, which made our video very important to us!Caroline & Ben

We both loved it and thought it was brilliant. The way it was edited was excellent and the music choice was spot on. It actually brought a tear to my eye and the few people who have seen it have also said how good it is. Thanks very much for all your hard work we really do appreciate what you’ve done!Mike & Steph
