Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions are set out to help parties become more aware of the services provided for their event and the responsibilities of all parties involved. Weddings are filmed as they happen with no retakes normally possible. This spontaneity is what makes your day so special and memorable.

These terms and conditions form an integral part of the booking contract.



  • A £100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure a booking.

  • Payment of the remaining balance is required no later than one month before the date of the event. Failing to comply will result in Gideon & Sidney’s departure from your event, and a non-refunded deposit.



  • All cancellations must be in writing (email or letter)

  • Should, for whatever reason, you have to cancel the booking the following charges will be applicable:

-More than before the wedding date the balance will, and the non-refundable deposit retained by Gideon & Sidney.

-less than before the wedding date the full balance, and the non-refundable deposit retained by Gideon & Sidney.

  • Cancellation within 7 days of booking will entitle a full refund of the deposit unless the cancellation is taking place less than one month before the event.

  • Any requested postponements will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Gideon & Sidney will try their utmost to accommodate an alternative date. If failing to do so, a refund will be issued, and the booking fee/deposit will be retained by Gideon & Sidney.



  • It is your responsibility to obtain any permissions, licences and pay any fees to any venues/locations or entertainers/musicians performing, where filming will take place (if applicable)

  • Unless advised otherwise, we will assume all persons attending the wedding have consented to be filmed.

  • We respect the wishes and regulations of anyone officiating at the wedding ceremony which may limit where we position cameras and other equipment. There may be other restrictions such as the limit of movement around the venue or certain parts of the ceremony which we are not allowed to film.

  • We make every effort to produce quality film and ensure all our equipment is of the highest quality and regularly maintained. We employ several contingency plans and strategies for sound and vision however, we cannot be held responsible for any lighting, sound or interference issues caused by circumstances outside our control. This includes technical failures, adverse lighting, noise issue and restrictions imposed by venues.

  • We use our professional expertise and discretion to ensure that significant parts of the day are recorded. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to record every aspect of the day as filming takes place ‘ life’. We retain the artistic licence.

  • We make every effort to arrive at the location on time, but we cannot be held responsible for lateness or non-attendance caused by circumstances outside of our control such as traffic delays, severe weather conditions, unforeseen illness/incapacity, accident, technical, camera or equipment failure. In such circumstances, we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss alternative arrangements.

  • We aim to be as discreet as possible during the day and will work alongside the official photographer. We follow the events of the day as they happen and therefore, are not in control of the setting. This may lead to some images being in high shadow/contrast or partial/temporary obstruction of subjects being filmed or issues of low/mumbled/no sound. We may be unable to take footage if the official photographer is not willing to allow filming when they are working.

  • We do not usually film during the wedding breakfast and whilst we will not join the reception guests, we would ask that refreshments are provided for the videographer/s during this time. In this way, we can remain on site.

  • Whilst we aim to film as much as possible during the day we cannot guarantee a minimum amount of footage that will be taken on the day or a minimum length for a couple’s film, this is due to the ‘live-event nature of the day and the unique structure of each individual wedding. However, we estimate our films range from 10 minutes to 60 minutes in duration.


Health and Safety

  • We will work with health and safety issues in mind and reserve the right not to film in dangerous or unsafe situations.



  • If there is any particular music you would like to be included please let us know before your wedding day. We will advise you if there are any particular issues with your choice. If no specific music is requested, we will choose appropriate music for you.

  • We aim to have a final edit of your film available for you between 3 - 5 weeks after the event. However, this may fluctuate depending on the time of year.

  • You must notify us in writing (email or letter) within seven days of receipt of the final USB film of any faults or playback issues and we will make every reasonable attempt to resolve them. Should we not hear from you within seven days we will assume you are happy with the final film.

  • All editing decisions are at the videographer’s discretion. We advise couples to watch examples of our work online at www.gideonandsidney.co.uk including full film examples, to familiarise themselves with our style of work.  We will do our utmost to include your suggestions and ideas, providing they are made in writing (email or letter) and before the wedding day, however, we cannot guarantee that they will be included.

  • All main wedding films, regardless of your choice of package, are edited on the ‘short form’ style and again couples are advised to read the information on the website (www.gideonandsidney.co.uk) to familiarise themselves with our style of work. Films can be edited with a ‘traditional edit’ if are notified in writing (email or letter) before the wedding day. Couples are advised however that the content, style and amount of footage recorded on the day is the same with both edits.

  • Gideon & Sidney retain the copyright of all materials recorded by them and it is not our policy to offer the raw footage to couples or third parties.

  • All other re-edits or any additional amendments will be charged at the rate of £30 per hour of editing time.
