Because a professional videographer, no matter how good he is, can only film so much. He is never going to have the access and relaxed easy going relationship you have with your friends and family A pro video may be very beautiful, but it will always lack the charm and humour of a DIY wedding video filmed by your nearest and dearest. All you need to make it look great is in the editing room


Why not just have my friends film my wedding video then?

They entirly can, on the other hand it may not be entirly practicle in certain cases That's why we offer the option of including a videographer with your standard package.

Asian Weddings


Asian weddings are an event. With so many people and ceremonies, there is ample opportunity to capture some great 'behind the scenes' footage that is otherwise overlooked by ordinary wedding videographers. Here, at You Do the Shoot, we can provide cameras for an extended duration so you can catch moments from the different events such as:

  1. The Sangeet
  2. The Mendi Night
  3. The Pithi Night
  4. The Wedding Day

Plus any additional events you may have planned.

We will liaise with you and send you a tutorial to ensure your selected camera men get some great shots on the day and our professional videographer/cameraman-director will be advising and directing you filmers so you can relax and enjoy the day. Remember, you can also send us additional footage from camera phones, personal camcorders and any other devices.

We will then refer to your editing notes when editing to ensure we include the people and moments that are important to you as well as the funny and priceless scenes that can not be predicted!

We will edit the footage and divide them over chapters that have been pre-agreed with you to give you a bespoke wedding video with all the beautiful colour and atmosphere of your wedding.

Wedding Diary Room

Why not add a new twist to the wedding day guest book tradition? With a box of props and a camera on a tripod, your guests can record their video messages to you in a diary room style. The messages can make amusing and heart warming interludes on your final wedding video, or compiled on a single DVD.

It is an easy way to not only entertain guests, but to immortalze the parts of the messages that are often missed in print!

Another advantage of the DIY wedding video

The Big Day

Are your cameras insured and how does it work?

All the video cameras are insured for both yours and our peace of mind. There is, however, an excess of £250, which you are liable for if we should have to ever make a claim in excess of that amount. We assume there will be some wear and tear to the camera, weddings can be quite boisterous, but if it has been damaged by being dropped or knocked, it will need to be fully serviced and you would be liable for these cost as well as the cost to replace any missing equipment.


What if there are any issues with the camera on the day?

We do everything within our power to make sure the video cameras are delivered to you in great working order. They are thoroughly tested with batteries fully charged before they are sent. Because they are delivered 2 days prior to the wedding day you will have ample opportunity to check them out.

In the unlikely event there are any technical query’s not covered in our tutorial we are just a phone call away, or even better, a Skype call away so we are able show you exactly what you need you know. If in the worst-case scenario somehow the camera is damaged in transit on its way to you, we will ship out a replacement immediately.


Camera Tec spec and stuff

We use the Panasonic SD900, the best proconsumer video camcorder on the market.very easy to use and ideal to film your wedding with.

Are the cameras easy to use?

All are cameras are pre-set to auto which means all you have to do is point and shoot. They are designed for quick and easy operation they produce great quality footage. Even in low light they have 400mins of battery life and come with a directional mic on board, which is vital for good sound quality. To film you own wedding video could not be easier.

Are my friends and family going to have a clue what to dooooo?

Our tutorial will give you everything you need to shoot a great wedding video. There easy to follow and explains how to operate the cameras, what to film and best way to film it. The idea being.

The Editing


How long dose it take to get my finished DVD?

Normally between 4 and 6 weeks depending on how busy we are, but sooner if possible. What is most important to us is that your finished DVD is not rushed and the entirety of your wedding is captured in all its glory.

We do offer an express service for £135, which guarantees that the editing is completed within 8 working days.


Can we choose the music used on our video?

You can choose what ever music you like for your DVD and where you would like us to place it. A few weeks prior to your wedding we will send you a questionnaire covering music choice,wedding venue and names of all relevant friend and family which will be added to your video.

What if the footage we have shot is no good?

Most of us, at some time or other have used a video camera; we are all pretty familiar with the concept. The truth is there is not much difference between what you do on your holidays with your own camera, and what the pros do at a wedding. The main difference are the cameras themselves and remember we will be there on the day.

The cameras we provide not only produce very high quality footage, they are incredibly easy to use. We are sure that once your allotted filmers have checked the tutorial and shot a couple of minutes of footage, their confidence will soar.

Our advice is to choose people who will take the job seriously.

How will you know what footage to use in my video?

That's Our job,our experience has taught us what can and cant be used. We go through all the footage picking out all the key shots leading up to the wedding day, the arrival at the venue, vows, speeches and all those magic moments caught by you. That make your video funny and charming. That gives your wedding video real character. We also send you all the footage whether it was used in your finished DVD or not.
