is anyone having a videographer filming their ceremony in Church? How much was your licence to do this and how do i go about getting one? image


  • I think if you just google it, it should come up.

    We've got a leaflet at home that the vicar gave us which we'll do ours from.

    The church said that they would organise it but then our videographer said that they would prefer to do it themselves so they know they are covered. They are just going to give the vicar a copy of the licence on the day. I think they said it was £30.

    Hi Ladies

    My licence for video was £8.17 and i purchased it from depending on what you need to cover depends on the price
  • I think you need it for copyright purposes. As the hymns are copywrited you have to have permission to video them. Same with music you have at the reception.

    our vicar said if its a proffessional videographer then they need a licence, but if a friend or member of family are doing it then its FREE!!!!!!!!!

    We had to pay the church another £100 - and that was for either a professional or if a family member was doing it! I think the church fee is more to do with copyright etc. Our videographer has organised the licence (included in his fee).
