We do not take bookings more than 7
months before the event date. If your event is longer

videos have a music soundtrack, so the audio of the
bride and groom taking their vows won’t be on it.
Yes, and we will do our best to
accommodate them. As every line of the song has to have
a matching piece of footage, and each line has only been
spoken by only one person, it’s difficult to take
someone out and replace them with someone else!
Not normally, because so much of
