Hi, I’m Anth, and I’mJolly Good Wedding Films。我喜欢婚礼，然后拍摄电影并为他们编辑这么多令人敬畏的夫妻是我的梦想职业。
WHERE DID YOUR PASSION FOR FILM COME FROM?
I was always into filming silly videos with mates, documentaries and music videos as a young college kid, but this developed into a university degree in TV production which then led to me starting my own business – Jolly Good Wedding Films. This has taken me all over the world, and the UK and I could not imagine a better job! I absolutely love films and have a ton of film memorabilia to keep me company in my office. You’re never lonely editing a wedding film with a life-size Chewbacca to look at.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT CAPTURING A COUPLE’S BIG DAY?
The love and joy! For me, it’s all about being able to capture the raw emotion of the day and present this back to my couples so that they have a long-lasting memory that they can watch forever. I must say I do get a buzz when I give my couples their films as this means my job has been done well, and the couples are often brought to tears when watching their big day back. It’s all about the tears!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I shoot naturally, capturing the day as it unfolds with minimal posing and no cheese! Gone are the days of the big camera on some old bloke’s shoulder, with a huge furry mic and light that can be seen from the moon. I’m all about being discreet, filming from afar where possible and letting the emotions be captured naturally, without interference.
WHAT’S YOUR APPROACH LIKE ON THE WEDDING DAY?
I like to get there a little earlier than arranged to have a walk about and take in the awesome venues, which I’m privileged to film at. I’ll then be yours all day, from bridal prep to the dancing and chaos! I’ll always work with the photographer to get the best from the day, and they often end up becoming a new mate! Fun, unobtrusive and natural is my ethos.
HOW DO YOU BUILD RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR COUPLES?
I interact with my couples through email, meetings, calls and even pre-wedding shoots. This is all to make sure the couple feel as at ease as possible and trust that I’m not going to intrude on their big day. I often see my couples at other weddings as the bulk of my business comes from referrals as (touch wood) I’ve not disappointed yet. I’ve even been invited to stay for the night do a number of times!
WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM OTHER VIDEOGRAPHERS?
我曾在英国和欧洲拍摄，我目前正在预订一些目的地婚礼，包括希腊，西班牙和墨西哥 - Covid允许，显然。
个是什么LD BE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR COUPLES SEARCHING FOR A VIDEOGRAPHER?
- 预订早期 - 良好的供应商将提前预订。我完全预订了这个和明年，所以早期进入那里。此外，通过早起，您将经常将货币省用，因为价格上涨时，您的会锁定。
- Speak with the person to make sure your personalities match, and they are right for you. Not every supplier will be the right fit for you, so it’s important to speak or meet with them to make sure this person, who will be spending the day with you and your closest family and friends, will be a good fit.
- Let the supplier do what you have paid them to do. Trust in their expertise and knowledge. When you book a supplier, you usually book them based on their style and that you prefer them to others, so let them do what they do best. I am more than happy to allow my couples a huge input on the creative process both on the day and in the edit but in my honest opinion, its best to leave the majority, if not all, to the supplier to do their thing and just sit back and enjoy your day.
AND YOUR NO-NOS?
- 忽略供应商 - 如果您询问过，则供应商将花时间回复。良好的供应商每年通常繁忙365天，即使您决定去其他地方，回复也是一个非常棒的礼貌。
- Haggle on price – I totally understand that everyone wants value for money, and a discount is always nice. I set my prices at a specific point to cover the time to prepare, learn, film, edit, upload, download, finish projects, export the files, email, correspond to email, take care of insurances, speak to venues, scouting plus all the other stuff like keeping up to date with the latest and best practices and equipment etc. I would never be offended by anyone asking for a discount, but as I say, I believe I have priced myself fairly in this market in order to offer my couples the best value and quality.
- 压力 - 随着流程。你的婚礼当天应该是你生命中最美好的日子之一，所以如果发生了一些小问题，让你的新娘和新郎派对对它们进行排序，但最终强调或不安，通常不会有助于，只会破坏你的一天。这一天都是关于你的，所以让别人为你照顾它，只是记住 - 你是当天的摇滚明星，所以只享受自己！
WHAT OPTIONS DO YOU OFFER WHEN COUPLES ARE BOOKING YOU?
I offer two packages. Firstly, the ceremony and speeches captured in full or a complete package which gives you a full day’s filming from bridal prep to first dance, with the ceremony and speeches separately, a trailer and all on a custom USB and online link.
