Our wedding at Clearwell Castle- short form edit

MrsJKMrsJK Posts: 463
We got married in Clearwell castle on 8th January and it was magical.

Im still not sure if I should do a report, this site was such a huge help to me in the planning so in the mean time here is the short edit flim of our day- its less than 4 minutes long but we believe it was the best money we spent on the day.

The cinematographer is Jeff Wood who was amazing before the day, on the day and afterwards. I can not recommend him enough. Any questions fire away or PM me

Here is the fabulous Jeff's website

    Hi... Your wedding video is amazing!! ....Sorry if this sounds rude.. But we are thinking of booking with Jeff Wood for our videography.. however dont know how much he is charging people.You dont have to tell me if you dont want to, im just trying to f8igure out whether what we have been quoted is right. We have been quoted £3000?

    Is this about right?

    This is for Long Form? I dont even know what long form is? Bit confused. As it says from 1600 on his website.


  • MrsJKMrsJK Posts: 463
    I agree about the emotion of the edit, that is why we chose Jeff Wood.

    Hi kathryn, he is a bit more expensive than some but I think if you look at the competition you will see that you get what you pay for.

    £3000 does seem expensive, how many edits have you been quoted for and when is your wedding? We only paid for one cimematographer (Jeff), for 8 hours and only the short form edit and he was a lot cheaper than £3000!

    Long form is the longest edit at around 40 minutes, medium is around 12 and short 3-6.
  • mrskg2013mrskg2013 Posts: 1,192
    Would be for long form and 2 cinematographers and for 10 hours.

    I really dont know if 3000 is too much. I really like his work, and by far its alot better than every videographer we have seen. We are getting married in 2013, however Jeff said he would do it at 2012 prices but they are from 2000 and international prices are from 2500 so thought 3000 was a bit much, but not sure?

    We really want to book him though. So confused as to what to do. We thought it would be about 2000, so bit shocked at the 3000 amount he has just quoted.

  • OMG - I missed this post when you originally put it up and I've just sobbed through it twice!!! It is fabulous, you must be so pleased with it.

    I'm probably more emotional as I am getting married at Clearwell in 64 days!!! So lovely to see what a wedding there is really like.

    Getting excited and just a little bit emotional now!!
  • MrsJKMrsJK Posts: 463
    Carrie you will have a fab time, couldnt fault the place.

    Kathryn, the two cinematographers is why it is so expensive, I imagine. Get a quote for Jeff on his own, we did and it was more than enough!

    Book him, it was the best money we spent on the day!
  • Absolutely stunning, Thankyou for sharing. Certainly got the tears rolling down my face. Such a perfect wedding :0)
  • mrskg2013mrskg2013 Posts: 1,192
