Since every wedding is unique, it’s Glimmer Pictures’ policy to design a singular package that best fits the marrying couple’s needs. The team are able to accommodate any reasonable request and most unreasonable ones – couples need only ask.

Steve will meet with the soon-to-weds before the big day to get to know one another and discuss details. He can then answer any questions or queries.

Glimmer’s coverage begins with the bride’s preparations and lasts until an hour after the first dance or according to other instructions. This way we capture the traditional centre-points of the ceremony in all their glory but also shoot lots of relaxed and informal footage of guests when the party gets into full swing.

We provide two camera operators throughout the day. This ensures we capture all of those priceless, too-easily-missed details as well as comprehensive coverage of the main parts of the day.

You will receive a Blu-Ray or DVD of your wedding complete with personalised menus and presented in a lustrous case.

When it comes to cost, Glimmer Pictures maintains a simple policy. There are two packages.

 

The Signature Package

It’s £1995 + VAT whether you want a cinematic epic or a cool arthouse curio. For this fee the DVD/Blu-Ray will include-

• ‘Our Day’ – A ‘director’s cut’ lasting about thirty minutes which retells the story of the whole day. The film will include a rousing soundtrack of the couple’s inspired music choices.

The strongly held belief at Glimmer Pictures is that thirty minutes is the perfect length of film. Many wedding film-makers offer only a ridiculously short five minute version or a long, painful and unedited opus of up to two hours that’s far too demanding to enjoy more than once. Glimmer Pictures believe this length of film, which captures the ‘big picture’ of the day yet still shows the detail, is invariably the best. This film sets us apart from the rest of the industry.

• ‘Highlights’ – At approximately three to five minutes long this will be a montage of the whole day edited to a music track of the couple’s choice. These perfect little gems are ideal for showing to friends and family.

• ‘The Ceremony in Full’ – although you probably don’t want the full uncut version of the ceremony and the speeches as part of your cinematic film, it’s great to know you’ve got them to look back at in years to come.

• ‘The Speeches in Full’

• ‘The First Dance in full’ – some couples adore this idea and choreograph a special routine. Others simply want a few key moments incorporated into their main film.

• Twenty high-definition screengrabs from the film package. These are ideal for printing or putting on Facebook.

 

The Moments Package

It’s £1495 + VAT for this stylish film which perfectly captures the key moments and the atmosphere of your special day. For this fee the DVD/Blu-Ray will include-

• ‘Moments’ – This is a short film lasting between 6 and 10 minutes and will be a montage of the entire day consisting of keys parts of the proceedings lovingly crafted together with shots of you and your ceremony, speeches and the reception. All cut to two or three of your hand-picked songs. We believe that a film of this length and content is also unique amongst wedding film-makers.

• ‘The Ceremony in Full’ – although you probably don’t want the full uncut version of the ceremony and the speeches as part of your cinematic film, it’s great to know you’ve got them to look back at in years to come.

• ‘The Speeches in Full’

• ‘The First Dance in Full’ – some couples adore this idea and choreograph a special routine. Others simply want a few key moments incorporated into their main film.

• Twenty high-definition screengrabs from the film package. These are ideal for printing or putting on Facebook.

Naturally, if a couple prefers the finished film package to take a different form they need only ask.

 

Add-ons

Having the Glimmer Pictures team linger to capture those additional special moments that couples just can’t imagine their film without is rarely a problem. The team is happy to stick around though we do have to add £60 per hour to the fee. Our apologies.

• Additional copies of a finished film on DVD/Blu-Ray will be charged at £50 per copy for a presentation copy or £30 per standard copy.

• ‘Our Story’ film – This will be a short film of approximately five to ten minutes. Glimmer will spend approximately half a day doing interviews about how the couple first met, the proposal and why they work so well as a couple. We’ll also shoot the soon-to-weds in a location of their choice in various scenes. This will be edited to include music tracks of their choice and presented on a DVD or Blu-Ray as well as featuring as part of their wedding film package. All this for £395.
