Daisy and Kitty's Videos

Open all Close all
Mainly parties and weddings, but also done hen parties, christenings, bar and bat mitzvahs, civil partnerships and corporate events.
We do not take bookings more than 7 months before the event date. If your event is longer away than that, you’re welcome to get in touch, but we won’t go firm on a booking til nearer the date for the simple reason that we don’t always know where we’ll be in a year’s time.
Yes.
Yes, we’ve done videos for clients all over Europe, Asia and the Americas. We love filming in all kinds of cultures and surroundings and have found that the appeal of a lip-synched music video is universal.
Most of our clients deal directly with us but we’re also happy to work with your party planner (and can recommend some very good ones if you’re looking).
We ask that you email us first, because most days we are busy working with clients and it’s not good to have our phones going off in the middle of a job! Of course, after that we can speak by phone.
It depends on the type of event, the number of guests, whether it’s on a weekday or weekend, the location etc … The ballpark figures for 2019 are: £1,500 for a party (21st, 50th etc) and £2,500 for a wedding. Shorter, weekday evening events are less expensive. Longer events over several days, or events taking place abroad are more.
Travel and accommodation (if required) are extras. We charge train tickets, air fares and taxis at cost. As far as accommodation is concerned, we will usually try to get back to London after an event, but sometimes need to stay in a local hotel or, if you have any spare room, with you or your friends.
No, we are below the VAT threshold so do not have to charge you VAT.
We ask for a 25% deposit on booking and for the balance to be paid within 7 days of the film being delivered to you.
The best way is bank transfer, but you can also pay by cheque. We will provide both an invoice and a receipt for payments.
You do. But if you’re not sure, we can make suggestions. It’s important to choose a song which guests know, and which has clear, simple lyrics.
Usually one song which is lip-synched (i.e. guests miming the words) and one which is background music to film footage. For longer videos, there will be additional background music.
For as long as it takes to capture the footage. For parties, this usually means we arrive an hour before the start and finish at midnight. For weddings we arrive in time for the ushers’ lunch and leave at midnight. But if we need to stay longer, we will, and there’s no extra charge.
We bring our small handheld cameras with lights attached. They work off their own batteries, so there are no messy wires or wobbly lights.
No, if a guest doesn’t want to be in it, then we don’t film them. We’re tactful and not over-pushy. In practice, most guests enjoy the process and love the result.
If the church gives permission, we’ll take a long shot of the bride and groom at the altar, and capture them coming down the aisle, but we don’t usually film the whole ceremony. Remember that our videos have a music soundtrack, so the audio of the bride and groom taking their vows won’t be on it.
Yes, we always film speeches and put them on a separate video, unedited.
We usually have the video ready within 2 or 3 days of the event, sometimes sooner.
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 what we do is about being at the party/wedding and editing while the memories are fresh. It’s more difficult and takes longer to edit other people’s footage. Having said that we do <em>sometimes</em> take on projects in which family and friends send in iPhone clips or still images, for editing into a video. If this is the kind of thing you want, please contact us to discuss.
It depends on the event, but usually between 6 and 20 minutes for the main video, with speeches supplied as a second video. For longer events, the video may be up to 30 minutes.
We email you a link to the finished film on our website, and we post you a boxed USB stick with the film on it.
Yes, we can send you a special link which allows you to download it direct to your laptop.
Yes, we have public liability insurance.

Our features are about individuals. So while we’re interested in brands and products, we don’t run corporate puff-pieces. We prefer to focus on the people behind the brand or product, and hear about the hoops they jumped through to get where they’ve got to. The more personal their story, the better.
Yes, please email features@jenksandco.tv.
No, they’re editorial, not advertorial.
Yes. If you have a good article ready to go, or a brilliant idea you can deliver on, please get in touch.
Maybe. Tell us what the event is, when it’s happening and where, and we’ll tell you straight away.
We don’t have the budget to pay normal photography rates, but if you’re good and want to get your foot in the door, please contact us.
