On your wedding day, Richard will drop Michelle off with the Bride to capture preparation shots (typically two hours before the ceremony) and then Richard will shoot off to where the Groom is getting ready. We only take one car therefore Michelle may need a lift to the church or venue. We then meet at the ceremony with one of us at the front and one at the back so you get two perspectives, allowing us to capture all the lovely emotion and those important moments. We will then generally be with you until a few songs after the first dance, so roughly 9/10 hours, if you require us for any longer an additional charge per hour will apply.
If you would like to go ahead with us, simply let us know, we will then send out contracts for you to read through and sign. To secure your date we require a £200 deposit which is removed from your remaining balance. This deposit is non-refundable.
YES!! We are with you for a very long time so will ask for a hot meal to be provided whilst you are sat down for your wedding breakfast, this can either be something from the bar or your main meal. Usually the chef will make more than he needs anyway so this should never be a problem.
We say between 3-8 weeks for your photos. In the quieter months it will be no longer than 4 weeks but if it is between May – September it can be anything up to 8 weeks.
Yes we are 🙂 We have full public liability and indemnity insurance, it’s all very boring!
When we get home from your wedding, our day does not end there. We back up your photos twice on separate external hard drives and we do not delete your images from the memory cards unless we absolutely have to, so your photos will be in 3 places. Then about 2 hours later we can go to bed!
We keep them forever! We do not like deleting things, so all the edited photos will stay with us as long as they stay with you.
We get asked this question quite a lot and it’s obvious why because these things do happen! HOWEVER, it would take a hell of a lot for one of us to call in sick on your big day, we know how important this day is to you and to us so unless we have broken bones we will be there! If the inevitable happens we have a huge group of photographer friends that we know, trust and can rely on. We will do whatever it takes to make sure your wedding is photographed.
We have joint copyright of your wedding photos. This is so that we can use them for promotional purposes such as on the website or at wedding fairs etc. You however have full permission to print the photos yourself and use them on social networking sites. We do ask to be credited though if you wish to do this.
Yes we do! We know some excellent printers and will be very happy to sort this out for you.
On your wedding day we take around 2000 photos between us. You will not get all of those because we take about 10-20 shots of one family group just in case someone blinks, so you are not going to want every single one of those! We cut them down to the photos we see suitable to give to you. We will give you between 500-900 photos dependent on your wedding day. If you have a 10 bridesmaids, 10 ushers, huge families, a magician, fireworks, dessert table and mountains of details you are more likely to get more images, as we like to photograph EVERYTHING! If your wedding is slightly more low key then you will get less but each and everyone will be edited and fine tuned in the SilverStar way!
Yep! Everywhere and anywhere! Destination weddings would be nice also!
We know how long it will take for you to choose your favourite 60 photos out of your set of 700 photos, therefore we create the album for you. We put the photos in the album which we feel work best and then we email it over to you. You can make as many changes as you like, you can even add more pages if you like (the average album has 20 double page spreads so 40 pages in total). We want to make the album right for you so there are no rules! We also have a variety of covers for you to choose from.
We will go anywhere you would like to go. If it is local to us it will usually take up to an hour and a half. If the shoot is a bit further away, lets say a beach in Woolacoombe 😉 (see Abby and David’s shoot here!) then that’s fine, we will ask for petrol money though. Engagement shoots are a great way for you to get used to being photographed then come the wedding day you wont be as nervous. We try and make you feel as relaxed as possible to get those gorgeous emotive and natural shots. You can wear whatever you like on the shoots weather it be smart, casual or you could go crazy and dress up as superheroes! Whatever’s clever! If you want to bring anything with you, you can do such as wedding invites, props you may have for the day or maybe even a photo of the two of you when you got together, we want to capture you and your personalities so bring whatever you like. Cats and dogs and kids also allowed!
You will get 30+ images all presented on a disk with permission to print. They will also go up on our online gallery which is password protected for your friends and family to view.
We do! It is not myself or Richard but we have teamed up with BlueRidge Wedding Videography who create beautiful videos. Go give them a shout!
Yes we do, you will find this under the client area tab on the website. They have the chance to buy prints, digital files, disks, and even albums if they wish!
We do indeed. We love to photograph newborn babies, family portraits, birthday parties, proms, christenings, anything really! You just let us know your requirements and we can give you a quote.
