This blog post has been a long time coming, this our most epic Sikh Wedding video to date spanning over 3 days. We covered the whole wedding using a 3 camera person team. My sister Gemma(who has been filming with me for 3 years now) my full time in house editor and camera man Rob and myself spent a total of 4 days in Birmingham covering the Civil wedding day (Highlights film from this day to follow in another blog post) the pre wedding parties and the main Sikh wedding day. We also worked with good friend and amazing wedding photographer Cris Matthews whom I have since worked with on many wedding (including an upcoming wedding in Lanzarote!). On the day Cris brought along another great friend and photographer of mine Hayley Ruth.
Here is a link to a photo slideshow Cris put together of his photo's from the 3 days http://crismatthews.com/blog/2011/10/18/dav-raj-3-day-sikh-wedding-photography/
I was more than happy when Dav and Raj booked me, not least because I knew they would look amazing on camera, a very good looking couple indeed! They are both really lovely down to earth people and were so easy to work with. We had no Bridezilla moments whatsoever and Dav was very chilled and calm throughout the 3 days wedding days.
We set about using our full arsenal of equipment ranging from a 6m jib, glidetrack, ladder dolly, 3 x 5d mark 2's and a car camera mount as well as making use of our video lights for a night time bride and groom shoot.
It was an epic edit taking over 4 weeks of actual editing time but for me it was worth it as I'm really happy with the end results. We produced a 50 minute edit of the Civil Wedding day plus a 7 minutes highlights video, a 30 minute edit of the pre wedding parties and ceremonies, a 1 hour long edit of the main wedding day plus 10 minute highlights edit. On top of this we also provided the Sikh ceremony in full mulitcamed edited together plus the speeches in full again multicam edited.
