Let’s just be honest with ourselves for a moment. You’re getting married and the expenses, from catering to your wedding dress, are piling up. There is just too much to be considered, and tracking your expenses might feel like an overwhelming task. At some point, you will probably be faced with the dilemma if you need a wedding videographer or not, and the inevitable question of whether you can afford it or not. But after all, this is the best way to capture the unforgettable moments and preserve them fresh and vivid for the rest of your life. Here’s what you need to know about wedding videography prices, which can make your decision easier.
The wedding videographer costs have risen a bit in 2021 due to the ever-increasing demand for professional video making services and covid-19 pandemic including the expected recession. But this shouldn’t demotivate you to miss out on such an important part of your special day. The good news is that when it comes to wedding videographer costs in the UK, there are several options you can opt for depending on your budget.

To put it into numbers, several factors affect a wedding videographer cost. According to these statistics, the average cost of hiring a videographer in the UK rounds up to around £1,036 but this is a bit outdated due to the big changes in the UK, for instance, COVID-19 and Brexit. Here are some of the factors that can affect wedding videographer costs:
In some areas of the UK, it will cost more to hire a wedding videographer. In cities such as London it will cost you around £1,954, whereas, in the Northeast, the prices naturally tend to be lower, averaging around £942. The prices vary a lot and depend on the area where the wedding will be held.
Quality and Time:
The other two factors affecting the price of a wedding video are the quality as well as the time slot it covers. If you’re covering an entire event from beginning to end, the cost will be significantly higher. On the other hand, if you’re covering parts of your event, the cost will be lower.
Basic or Premium Packages:
Wedding videography prices are usually divided into two packages. The basic one usually covers footage of the ceremony as well as special requests by the couple. The video is recorded on one or two cameras which in some cases may not include audio equipment for really professional sound recording. The well-wishes to the bride and groom are recorded in most cases. Most of the time the videographer will deliver a nice video which includes a highlights video (3-4 minutes) and probably a full ceremony and speeches. From our research, 90% of the couple who are on a budget will be happy with the product.
However, the price of the premium packages offered by UK wedding videographers will be much higher as they will be experienced creatives who have a sense of composition, the best possible light to use for any of the shots, sound design and editing. The difference is from a nice video to a great wedding film. The final products can be truly cinematic which will hold not your memories but true value over time. To capture and craft a film to make you cry and laugh and feel there is more than a good video operator who records the day for you. We like to call it a film with a soul and these films are produced by videographers who really knows what they are doing and they definitely are considered premium. It is not about what is the gear, resolution of the videos or drone footage, it is more than that.
Hiring a videographer and choosing a package depends on your budget. Making the best decision requires some research so take the time to do that before hiring a wedding videographer!
