Full Description
  • The three of us have been making wedding videos together since 2005 and we recently realised that our favourite jobs are the ones where the couples have put their own stamp on things. So we decided that we really wanted to meet more and more couples with the desire to make their big day, THEIR big day. For this reason, every wedding we now film is tailored entirely to you and the things that you’re passionate about, whether that’s a love of all things rock & roll, offbeat love stories, or simply a determination to throw out the clichés and have a wedding day that’s as individual as you are. What seems to be most popular is full day coverage edited into a highlights film (with your choice of music), with longer films from the day edited together for extras to go on the USB stick/BluRay/DVD. Each wedding is as different as the couple planning it though, so just get in touch so we can decide together what’s best for you. If having a film is important to you but you’re on a tight budget, we will try and work out something that suits you - DIY weddings are great fun! For a quick top-of-our-heads estimate, feel free to send us a tweet at @specialdayfilms. If you think we might be a good match for you we’ll pop over for a cup of tea and a chat. All this is without obligation, of course. If there’s anything else you want to to ask us about, please email us at mail@specialdayfilms.com - We look forward to hearing from you!

FAQ
(5)
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fly-on-the-wall, indie-style, DIY, friendly, down-to-earth.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The feedback we get is always really nice. As well as being there on the day itself we also spend hours and hours on the edit and by the time you get to the end, you sort of feel a little bit in love with them both, so when they see the finished product and they tell you how happy they are, it really means a lot! Likewise, when you know someone was really nervous beforehand and a little camera-shy, to have them say they felt really at ease with us and happy with the results gives us a massive amount of satisfaction.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember that it's YOUR day, have a wedding that reflects you as individuals. Also, remember that the day will fly by in a blur; make sure you get a photographer and filmmakers that you trust and who's work you love. That way you'll be able to relive it all over and over again, and enjoy any little moments you missed on the day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
It's too hard to pick a favourite! We always keep our eye out - and our camera ready - for the little moments that make a wedding unique to the couple though!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We generally send a few emails back and forth to chat with the couple and find out what they're looking for and answer any questions they might have etc. Once we've worked out a price for the film that they want, we'll send over a booking form with extra info on (and questions about their favourite films etc) and get a deposit to reserve the date for them. Sometimes we'll pop over for a cup of tea to chat in person, or even film pre-wedding interviews (which can be really funny). Sometimes we'll come along to see the venue beforehand but that's usually not necessary. On the day we arrive with enough time to say hello again and meet your bridesmaids/groomsmen and the venue staff etc, and after that you'll probably barely notice us. During the edit process, we'll put updates on our social media - including photos of the work in progress (like the examples we've added to our BrideBook account!), then we'll upload a sneak preview of the highlights and then not long after that we'll upload the full film for you to share with friends and family. The USB/BluRay/DVDs will arrive shortly after, with all the extra films and bonus footage.
