Why choose Utopia Films? And why to choose two videographers?

It’s true to say that your day will go by in a flash! Having a wedding videographer has many benefits and having two videographers who work in a cohesive manner is an extra bonus.

Every time, filming a wedding is the opportunity to tell a unique visual story. To capture not only the most important parts of your day, such as ceremony and speeches, but also the details, the atmosphere, the mood, your family and friends’ smiles and reactions, the moments that move you, and the exquisite emotions that if not captured will be forgotten.
We film separately and as a duo. A wedding is usually one-day celebration with many things going on and it cannot be repeated. It means working in an unpredictable and uncontrolled environment. Having two skilled and experienced videographers is sometimes a necessity. We can be in two different places at the same time, e.g. shooting bridal and groom preparation, capturing the ceremony from many different angles, getting coverage of drink reception and photo/video shoot at the same time and more…

We always try to be unobtrusive while filming your wedding. We love when you feel relaxed and comfortable, same for your guests.

What is the booking process?

Contact us and check our availability first via our website or email us at hello@utopiafilms.co.uk. If we are free on your wedding day and you would like to book us, we will email you our booking form and details on how to make a booking fee to secure our services.

How much is the booking fee? How do I pay it?

We ask for a minimum £150 booking fee to secure the date. The booking fee comes from the overall cost of our service. Our wedding videography services are secured when the booking fee is paid. We take payments via Bank Transfer. The remaining (final) balance is due 14 days before the date of your wedding. You can make a payment in installments or before the due date. We will email you the invoice a few weeks before the date of your wedding.

What is next? 

Four – six weeks before your wedding day, we will email you a form with the details we need from you regarding your wedding timetable. We always try to meet up with our couples before the wedding day.

What equipment do you use?

We believe filmmaking should be enhanced by technology. Not only by the equipment you use on a day to video the wedding but by the software and techniques you use to produce the final film. We record in 4K/HD. We use the top-quality audio devices.

How long does it take to finish our wedding film?

The average waiting time is 14 weeks. The final turnaround time depends on how many weddings we have in the queue. The turnaround time won’t exceed 24 weeks which is guaranteed by our contract/booking form. Should you require an express turnaround, please get in touch!

How will you edit our feature wedding film?

The main feature will be about 15 minutes long edited in an artistic, creative, cinematic way to show the story of your wedding day and you as a couple. The Film will have bits and pieces from your ceremony (i.e. vows) and from your speeches. In addition to the main feature, you will also receive the short highlights clip.

If you have booked a package with two videographers, you will not only receive the 15 minutes long feature film and the highlights clip but also the full ceremony and the full speeches edited separately.

The videos are entertaining and exciting to watch! We spend countless hours working on each wedding film, crafting a top- quality film that takes you on an emotional journey

All videos are delivered in full HD quality on USB.

Can I pick my music for the wedding film?

Sure! We will ask you to email us songs you like and wish to be included in your feature wedding film. We are more than happy to give you some suggestions or ideas for music/tunes/songs for your movie.

Highlights video clips/online trailers or videos will have music chosen by us from the music we are able to license and purchase online.
