What is your style on the day?
WE like to be super discreet and let the day unfold with as little interruption from us as possible. This is the same whether our couples book us for just videography or for photography too. We are unobtrusive and really love a documentary style; this is where the magic is! We do like to take our couple away for portraits at 1-2 points in the day but we will have a look at your schedule and fit around that. If a couple want some formal shots, we recommend no more than 10-12 because nobody wants to spend all day in a line-up when you could be off having fun with your nearest and dearest!
What is your most popular package?
Our most popular package is definitely the full house! We most frequently get booked for photography AND videography and we love this! We definitely make our best products when we work together in this way. Makes sense right? We know each other well, we take time to get to know you before the day and that is the winning formula. And our clients end up with a wonderful cohesion across all of their wedding products - and less suppliers to liaise with/get to know in the run up to your day! Familiar and comfortable with each other. WINNING!
What if I can't decide on the right package for us?
That is no problem at all! We often leave our clients to mull over their decision and take as long as they want! Our clients often like to upgrade following their event (for example, the usually shy and retiring one blows everyone away with beautiful words about their new partner for life - and then our clients suddenly realise they would really treasure than on film. So in short, get your date secure by filling out our very quick booking form, dropping over a £250 booking fee which reserves your date and our services for your day and we can handle the final details at a later date :)
I'm worried about overkill if I book a videographer too!
DO NOT FEAR! We shoot photography AND videography on the same, discreet, small (mirrorless) cameras. Our set-up for both disciplines is basically the same! We have chosen our cameras because of their excellent in-built stability so we can can move around quickly and remain unintrusive. Our audio equipment is just as discreet: we have a small handheld audio recorder (think-mobile-phone-off-of-the-nineties size!) which we surreptitiously hide in the table flowers, or on a lectern... and then we just leave it to do its thing! Super discreet which means we can be super nimble on our feet - just like a photographer!
What can I say? We have just watched our film for the first time and it is more than words can describe. Our day was such a blur to us both and Fineshade Films did the best job of reliving it all for us. They are the best. They are the most friendly and accommodating team and we couldn't ask for anything more beautiful and well-made than this! We can now treasure our memories for a lifetime and it simply has blown us away. We cant thank you enough. Amazing.
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Fineshade films did our wedding photography and videography. My husband and I do not feel the most confident in front of the camera but from the moment they stepped foot in the bridal suite they made me feel completely relaxed and comfortable around them and the worries about being in front of the camera disappeared. The booking process was super easy and Danielle helped us understand what kind of style of photos and video we wanted, which helped massively! They are both lovely people and honestly you barely realise they were there taking snaps throughout the day, which left us with the most gorgeous natural shots (which is exactly what we wanted) The images and video we received were better than we could have ever imagined and we are so happy we chose them! We love looking back at our photos and videos and as do our family and friends. Could not recommend them anymore!! Thank you
Me and my wife Aimee were married in 2018 after being together for the previous 17 years. During these years she'd had a long time to plan out the perfect day in great detail. Approaching our wedding day Aimee explained to me that she wanted to bring in a videographer to capture our day, an idea I was skeptical of as we already had a photographer booked and had spent a lot of money on the day. As always she had the final say so we booked in Fineshade Films. I'm so glad she did!!! The wedding day itself was over in a flash and having someone there to capture the memory on film was worth more to me than I can explain in words. It makes me cry every time I watch it and provides memories in a way that a photographer would not have been able to captured. In my opinion It was one of the most valuable decisions made. Danielle and Martin are so incredibly talented and you can tell they love doing the job that they do. My memories of the day definitely wouldn't have been the same without them. Get them booked
Fineshade films are not only very talented they are very nice people. I contacted them in advance of our wedding in 2018 sharing a very expensive film that I loved, Martin was extremely honest with me & took time to understand what I was looking for & also praising the other company’s good work. That for us was true professionalism & honesty; not only did we get a better film, it saved us money. This husband & wife team are very talented & people that you want to see do well. My wedding day was amazing but was made even better for the people I trusted to capture the moments that matter.
I just want to say a massive thank you for yesterday. You made us feel at ease and even helping out with things like confetti and buttonholes really meant a lot. The photos are truly stunning and we are so happy with them. They capture everything we wanted and more. You guys are so amazing and I'm sure people can see how incredible you are from the photos. Couldn't have chosen better people to capture our special day.
