Frequently Asked Questions


What happens on the day?

At Big Day Films we are dedicated to capturing every part of your wedding day. Your day is special to us so we work hard to make sure we focus on all of the personal details that make your wedding unique. We will film you as you get ready in the morning, say ‘I do’ in front of your loved ones and celebrate together into the evening.

What sort of camera equipment do the videographers use?

We always bring a DSLR kit (Canon 5D Mark III) complete with a variety of lenses. The size of our kit may depend on the package you select but we promise to remain unobtrusive during the personal moments on your day!

Who will be filming our big day?

At Big Day Films we have an experienced team of dedicated videographers who would love to work with you. They like meeting new people and remain relaxed and focused throughout the event. Each videographer enjoys being part of a team and strives to make sure our final wedding videos are of the highest quality. Of course if you select the ‘Vintage’ package one of the four will step into a director’s role and spend dedicated time with you bringing out extra creative personality in your film.

When does coverage begin and end?

We will work around your schedule on the day but coverage usually begins during the final bridal preparations and continues through the day and into the night. We definitely don’t want to miss your first dance as a newly married couple!

How long will the finished video last?

Here at Big Day Films we offer three packages. Our ‘Retro’ package includes a 5-6 minute wedding film, our ‘Classic’ package includes a 8-10 minute wedding film and our ‘Vintage’ which doesn’t have a time limit, includes a carefully crafted concept in a stylised wedding film. If you would like to send us an email for more information we can answer any further questions.

How far are you willing to travel?

We are based in Dublin, Ireland but won’t refuse the opportunity to travel for your wedding wherever it may be! If you aren’t getting married outside the Dublin vicinity we may ask you to cover extra travel expenses but please ask about this via our enquiry form.

Can I choose the music for my video?

We want your wedding video to be personal and know that only you can decide what music is important and special to you as the couple. At Big Day Films we love collaborating with couples and want your style and taste to be reflected in the final film. We therefore ask for your preferred music choices and always include these in the video.
