Your wedding day is one of the most important and memorable days of your life. Capturing this momentous occasion on film allows you to relive the special moments for years to come. However, creating a stunning wedding video involves an extensive post-production process.
Each videographer has their own estimated turnaround time, which is influenced by various factors such as the length of the wedding video, the amount of footage captured, and the videographer’s workload. Wedding videographers can have multiple weddings to work on, which can also affect the turnaround time.
How does the editing process work?
The editing process is a time-consuming task that requires exceptional skill, just like any other post-production film. Moreover, creating a personalised film that features you and your spouse requires meticulous attention to detail.
Before beginning the editing process, we need to sort through the footage carefully. We can have up to eight hours of footage from the day itself, which we go through meticulously to select the best clips for the final edit, which can be a 45-60 minute video. We utilise various editing techniques such as colour grading, correction, and adding an appropriate soundtrack to give your film a cinematic and professional quality.
Factors that affect editing time
Editing the film into different formats such as full-length video, social media trailers, and highlight videos can also affect the turnaround time. For instance, if you require an Instagram reel format for your social media trailer, the framing needs to fit. We aim to produce spectacular footage for every format we publish.
Sorting through the footage can take a lot of time, especially when there are more than eight hours of footage to review. However, we pay careful attention to detail to ensure that we select the best bits.
What happens when my video is complete?
After we complete the film, we send it to you, the client, to ensure that you are satisfied with the final product. We are always willing to take on board any notes or changes to make sure that the final product meets your expectations.
Once the finalised film is ready, we send the footage in the formats included in your package, which can include a USB hard copy, as well as downloadable file forms so that you can access your film conveniently.
In conclusion, the turnaround time for editing a wedding video depends on various factors, such as the length of the video and the complexity of the editing process. We aim for a turnaround time of around four weeks, depending on the editing notes between us and yourselves, as well as the different formats and effects we have added to your final cut. Our primary objective is to ensure that you are satisfied with your wedding video, which is personal and unique to you. We hope that your video will be a cherished memory for years to come.
