Bride and groom doing the limbo, here's when to book your wedding videographer by Nelson Films

5 tips for when to book your wedding videographer

Knowing when to book your wedding videographer is really important to the wedding day planning process. In this post I have listed out a few items that you can do to make sure you are ready to contact your videographer. It’s actually quite an obvious process but none the less, couples do still reach out way before they have even booked the venue. It’s great that you are keen to use a particular vendor but no-one in the wedding industry will be able to confirm a booking unless you have the basics in place.

1 – Get to know my style

Firstly, watch the wedding films on this website, it’s really important that I provide films that you are happy with, so checking my style and flow of the films is really the best place to start for when to book your wedding videographer. If not, then please take a look at them to check that you like my style.

2 – Book your venue

Once you have your venue booked and your registrars, celebrant, vicar etc all aligned with your date, it’s usually a good time to then start thinking about planning your wedding photography and videography coverage.

3 – Arrange a call

If you have this in place, please reach out to me via the contact page and arrange for a quick call back. This is a good starting point for when to book your wedding videographer as it’s the first time we get to speak and gauge whether we are a good match for each other.

4 – What to expect during our initial call

During out initial conversation we will probably cover details about your venue(s), what your rough timings will be, where you will be getting ready, what genre of music you like, will you be having any readings and speeches you are planning and if you have already arranged a photographer etc. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t managed to arrange these things yet, I know there are lots of things to get sorted, and videography is normally quite high on the list of things to arrange in good time because the diary gets booked up fast.

The initial call is really just a way of understanding what your vision is for your big day.

5 – How to proceed with a booking

If you have watched the films and we have had an initial call to briefly discuss your day & requirements, the next step is to look at the booking process. This is a really simple process that’s all done online. In basic, I send you a quote to review, once you have reviewed the quote the online system takes you through the agreement to review and then asks for the deposit payment. Once the the deposit is paid then you are all booked in and your date is secured.
