I remember Leisa starting a thread similar to this awhile ago and it swayed me to get a video so i'm hoping this thread will do the same.

We just came back from reviewing our DVD and i love love love it! I am so glad we decided to get one and after photography it is certainly the best money we've spent. White documented the day so well and i guess i can mention their name because they advertise on here.

The editing is just beautiful and perfectly created. There were moments that i missed such as the boys before the church and before we entered the reception and little moments between Marc and I that i forgot. I started crying while watching it and really tried to hold it in otherwise i would've been bawling!

There are just some minor changes to be made but otherwise it's perfect! So if you are thinking of getting one, please please please do so. Even if its just having a family or friend film it.

I can't stop smiling, i definitely feel like i've relived the whole day and its just made my day even better! (my horse came first in the melbourne cup lol tongue.gif )

Ok i'll shut up now biggrin.gif

Agreed, Jen!

White did a magnificent job with our DVD and it allowed us to relive our wedding day. It was so bizzare watching the DVD, it was like watching our photography proof booklet come to life.

I'm so glad you are pleased with your DVD.

That is so true Vik, photography come to life!

There was footage of our guests and some were laughing, some were crying and it was just beautiful seeing all the different emotions they were going through. I am so happy i got to see what i otherwise would have missed smile.gif

I agree too! There are moments on our DVD I never saw on the day and the video captures so much that even the photos can't. Our DVD looks like an exotic and expensive film clip and makes us really chuffed every time we see it.

Hi missmookz

I am thinking about getting White to do the videography for our wedding.

What package did you get?
How much did it cost?
Any hidden costs?

What were they like on your actual day, as in how many videographers on the day?

How long did the DVD go for?

Sorry tongue.gif for alll the questions - my h2b doesnt want to get video so im trying my hardest to convince him!

Hi hhh

We opted for package B. In terms of hidden costs, the only thing i didn't like was the fact that the pricing is without GST, so make sure u factor that into your budget.

Our dvd montage goes for roughly 40 mins. With speeches and Sermon it totals 1 hour and 10 minutes.

White were fantastic on the day, our cameraman was hardly noticeable at all.

H2B and I had not planned on using a videographer but that was one persuasive post ...I think we will have to give it some more thought!

We originally thought that having a video might take away from the way that we remembered the day... but it sounds like yours added to your beautiful memories!

Decisions, decisions!!

There wasn't a millisecond where I thought about NOT getting a video and anyone who knows my personality knows why wink.gif But I'm sooooo glad you are happy with yours, I can just imagine what great things there were to be seen in it!!

Totally agree. I love ours. It was just beautiful to be able to relive it over again and see all those things we'd missed or forgotton. Plus, we had a really small wedding so some work friends came over to watch it this afternoon because they weren't invited.

Thanks for that!
Now just have to convince hubby - he is more into his photography and we will be spending a whole heap on that so will need to see how far our budget will stretch!

We didnt have the money to put towards a video but i agree at least get some to film for you.We did and Im pleased we did.
Ok so its not the same as a professional but it still picks up things you may have missed or things you want to reemeber forever.
hhh if you cant convince hubby try get somene you know to film it for you..

Thank you so much MissMookz,
We have booked an appointment with White for next month when we return to Sydney to see all our suppliers and from what people have said, I don't even think I'll bother seeing anyone else.
