What we film
A typical wedding shoot for Forget Me Not Weddings usually covers your guests arriving at the ceremony all the way to your first dance as a married couple at around 10 PM that night.
We would normally cover all the moments of your day with two discreet DSLR's and operators, along with some hidden microphones. We don't mic anyone up during the day as this we feel is an intrusion into your private moments and conversations. We do our best to blend in while still capturing all the goings on that may pass you by in the excitement of the day! Occasionally, if need be, we will use additional cameras for certain situations where perhaps an added angle or even a timelapse may help tell your story.
One of us will arrive at least 90 minutes before the ceremony time, so that we can capture your venue being set up and grab establishing shots of the location and its surroundings. If agreed, one of us will capture the Bride and Bridal Party getting ready on the morning of the wedding. This can be a nice time to relax into the day, and also for you to get used to the cameras being nearby, but not too near!
If the Groom is nearby also, we can capture some of the fun of his prep with his Groomsmen too.
We always endeavour to record all major aspects of the day, from
-Greeting guests outside the church/ceremony venue
- arrival of Bridal Party/all key moments in the ceremony/signing of the register
- departing the ceremony
- arrival at the venue
- the reception
- entering the Wedding meal and being introduced as a married couple
- the speeches
- the First Dance + a couple of songs after that- Please note until 10pm, after this additional costs may be incurred.
- numerous tiny details from throughout the day and evening .
You will receive a 3/5 minute cinematic clip of your day, as an .mp4 file which you can upload to your social networking sites.
You will also get the full documentary of your day, all edited together. This part usually runs to an hour or so.
However, sometimes it can be longer, as it can be difficult to leave so many moments on the cutting room floor!
To ensure the completed film is personal and bespoke, we will work with you to include some of your favourite or personal music in the final edit. We are happy to provide you with ideas or suggestions to help in this regard if need be.
Your full version of your day will be provided to you on a link via dropbox which you can download easily to your own device. Do let us know if you would like any DVDs but there will be an added cost for this.
We love to take time out and meet with you before the wedding, so that you know for definite that we are the right fit for your Wedding Day, but so you are hopefully more relaxed having already met with us prior to the big day! Coffee is on us!
We love to travel and we film all over Ireland and beyond, however as we are based in Dublin. So if you are getting married outside the greater Dublin area we may need to include for reasonable travel expenses.
The Cost is €1,500 and if you would like Bridal prep filmed this is an extra €200. We can tailor this to your needs depending on what you would like captured.
