FAQs

FAQs for your wedding videographer

When do I pay you ?

As we don’t require a deposit at the time of booking, full payment is required on the  morning of your wedding, this way your wedding dvds will be ready for collection when you come back from honeymoon!

Why should I book Abbey Video Productions for my wedding?

We have years of experience, so I think that speaks for itself!  We constantly keep up-to-date with the most recent technology, we have built up a powerful reputation and have been complimented on both our professional and unobtrusive approach at weddings. Our creativity and documentary style approach means you and your guests will hardly notice us working in the background

Do you work well with the photographer?

Yes, over the years we have met many of the professional Irish wedding photographers and we all get on great, and also recommend each other when needed. The old rule is always there, “the photographer can be in your wedding video, but the videographer must never appear in your photographs”

Old photographs at the start of my DVD – do you charge for this?

No, for you it’s free! but we must receive the them 3 weeks before your wedding

Civil Partnership weddings.

Just give us a call, we would love to film your special day

Do you stay and film the disco?

Ah Now !

How Many DVDs will I receive?

You will receive 4 commemoratively boxed DVDs

After viewing your samples, can we request a full wedding DVD to view at home?

Of course you can! We encourage people to do this as it is difficult to make a decision on a computer screen.  Just let us know your name and address and one will be in the post to you straight away.

Will my finished DVD have computer generated titles?

Yes it will, we use the most up-to date professional quality software

Do you set up shots on the day?

We never set up shots unless asked to by the Bride and Groom. We think it looks too staged. We film exactly what happens on the day to make your DVD as natural as possible.

The BIG Question do you charge extra for travel?

Simple. NO we don’t charge extra for travel.

How many cameras do you use?

We use our main camera but also a top of the range Hi Def GoPRO camera where possible to get those extra shots.  Generally an experienced videographer knows when and where to be, so adequate coverage can be achieved with one camera person. Ask for one of our demo DVDs and see for yourself

What about those bright lights?

Because we strive to be as unobtrusive as possible at a wedding we do not use lights in the church and only minimal lighting, if needed, during the dancing. In fact, couples are often surprised when they see their wedding video and realize that we were still there recording and they thought we had gone!

Will my DVD have interactive menus and play buttons?

Yes all our DVDs have all of the above, for your convenience and enjoyment.

Will the camera person be in our faces all day?

Not at all – with modern cameras & lens we don’t need to be close to you at all. So if some of your family are shy of cameras they need not worry and can enjoy their day

Why should my wedding be filmed?

After all the planning and arrangements you have made over the past months, your day will pass so quickly and it is so nice to look back to your wedding day at leisure with your family and friends and relive all those special moments, and even see things that you missed on the day itself!
