The films are 3-8 minutes long depending on the event
During a wedding, we capture a large amount of raw video. You have the option to receive the entire ceremony and speeches, but you do not have the permission to share on any social media or web platform – it is for private use only. The Pinewood Weddings does not give permission to modify the video files.
The songs are hand-picked by Pinewood Weddings. We have all the legal rights to use them. Usually we have a suggestion based on the wedding’s mood, but you can also choose your preferred music. It is more practical to have one chosen song for the entire film to achieve harmony and consistent feeling throughout. We don’t recommend making a film for a certain song, but to find the perfect music to fit the wedding that everyone will enjoy watching over time.
The cinematographer is responsible for the video. He is the one who selects and puts together your most beautiful and original moments. Of course, you have the option to tell us if you want a certain moment included. Since most of the day is recorded, we can meet your wish most of the time. If you have exact thoughts (who should or should not be in the film), please let us know in advance.
A wedding is very complex and obviously a wedding film cannot have all the little details. Mainly we select the moments by aesthetics and harmony principles.
SPEECHES AND CEREMONY
We record in short 5-30 second video clips. If
you wish us to record certain speeches or action, please let us know in advance before the wedding. We try to meet all of your needs, but if you don’t let us know before the day we can’t guarantee it.
RECEIVEING AND SHARING THE FILMS
You will have three different options to access it. Depending on the selected package, you will receive a nicely wrapped DVD or USB stick. You can also download it from our server. Most of the videos can be viewed on our Vimeo channel, where you have the option to share it publicly or privately.
FILM AND PHOTOS – MUTUAL PRINIPLES
The disciplines and technology of still images and moving pictures are quite different, but we always match the feel. During the post-production process, we constantly consult with each other. That’s how we achieve the harmonious effect.
SAVE THE DATE FILM
We previously discuss and plan everything ahead, then we can create a short fun video where you share your love story. A cool introduction either sent previously to the guests as an invitation, or projected on the wedding day.
GO PROS AND DRONES
Similar to our style of photography, we prefer to record simple, intimate moments in video. We believe too many technical tools diminishes that honest original feel. If you are still obsessed with the idea, let’s talk about it! Having close connections with production, grip and equipment studios, we can recommend someone great for you!
Light is everything to us. We take advantage on the existing lighting we have available to us most of the time. Our intention is to rather have the imperfect lighting, but to capture the mood or highlight a surreal effect. We are not a big fan of disturbing the ceremony or having anyone to stop dancing just to get a good picture of everyone.
