Motion Farm Wedding Films was started by James, who has many years’ experience in videography and a first class degree in Media Technology. He is passionate about creating beautiful wedding films and loves being a part of couples’ special day.
Friendly and talented videographers James and Tom use a non-obstructive style of filming to capture the little moments which will mean a lot, without intruding on your day. They adapt their filming style so that it fits perfectly with your wedding theme and your personalities. James loves to capture beautiful shots of the countryside and coast. They offer three packages to choose from, including the option to have two videographers to capture every moment.
Motion Farm Wedding Films use high-tech cameras and can provide amazing aerial footage using drones. James is dedicated to spending the time during the editing process to perfectly reflect the unique feel of your day. They are based in Cornwall but also cover Devon and Somerset and charge travel expenses for distances further than Somerset.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What services do you offer?
Full day wedding videography
What does your wedding package include?
Coverage with either one or two videographers for the whole day. You receive a feature-length edit with full ceremony and speeches with everything else stylishly edited to music of your choice. This runs like a chronological movie of your whole day in which we also mix in live recorded sound. You also receive a shorter 4-6 minute highlight trailer to share online which is slightly more cinematically edited featuring snippets from the speeches and vows mixed in with the rest of the day's action. Finally we produce an Instagram teaser. Everything comes presented to you on custom made DVDs or Blu-ray. USB copies also available.
How far in advance should I contact you?
We tend to get booked up a year in advance for peak Summer months but it's always worth enquiring first as we do have gaps in our schedule. We limit the amount of weddings we shoot to between 20-25 and still have availability for 2019 and 2020. Get in touch!
Do you cover more than one wedding per day?
There are two of us here at Motion Farm Wedding Films. On larger weddings we work as a pair but on smaller weddings that are closer to home we do split up to cover more than one wedding in a day. It's best to chat through your requirements first and we can advise on whether you'd need both of us or just a single videographer.
Are you able to travel?
We cover Cornwall & Devon as standard but do travel as far as Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire & Gloucestershire for an additional charge. Contact us to find out more...
What kind of technology do you use?
We use the latest Full frame Sony & Canon mirrorless cameras meaning we can be quite stealthy at your wedding and get those intimate shots without most people even knowing we're there! We also use the latest DJI drones and gimbals to get smooth cinematic shots from both ground and air.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
We charge by event only however, if you'd like extended coverage into the night we can offer this for an additional fee
What are the forms of payment?
You can pay by BACS. We require a £200 deposit to secure the date. After this we only require half of the remaining balance before the wedding day with the final balance due when we complete the films (usually 8-12 weeks later)
How do you work?
We try to make it fun for everyone. We're not pushy at all like some videographers. We like to work with the photographer to get the best shots we can as quickly as possible. At the end of the day we're here to make you guys happy and anything we can do to help the ride go smoother we will do it!
Do you fly a drone?
Yes, we have our permissions from the CAA to fly commercially and are insured for up to 5M. As long as the weather is good enough and there are no safety or privacy issues we will get some epic shots over your wedding venues.
What music do you use?
Pretty much anything you want for the feature film. Just send us some inspiration like a list of 10 songs and we'll do our best to work them into the edit. For the shorter highlights versions we will select our own choice of music from a host of royalty free licensing sites that we are signed up to. Don't worry , you can guide us as to what sort of vibe you like and we'll do the rest!
On weddings during weekdays (Monday-Thursday) you will receive a discount of 20% off our weekend rate.
