Online streaming and downloading

This is your very own online wedding film portfolio. Online streaming and downloading of your entire wedding film (all edits) in 4K (or whichever resolution you choose) by anyone at any time and on any device. It kinda works like Netflix. You can view your FULL wedding video anywhere, any time, on any TV or device, with the click of a link. Are you going to have a DVD player in ten or twenty years? DVDs are not capable of displaying HD video, never mind 4K. DVD is only capable of displaying a degraded Standard Definition (SD) image. It makes no sense to film and edit your wedding video in stunning 4K, and then for you to view a degraded DVD image. It should be a crime against humanity. Formats change over time — this option is literally forever in the best quality possible. And the files themselves do not degrade over time, or get scratched, or get lost like physical media inevitably does.

4K upgrade

Your wedding film is shot in stunning 4K quality. It is edited in 4K and delivered to you in HD, which is almost 2K quality. Why not get the 4K upgrade and future proof your wedding video edits forever in pin sharp 4K clarity?

Social Media Pack

The social media pack includes delivery of the following via downloadable link, or on the USB that comes with your package (if applicable). Five 60 second clips for Instagram, 20 still images taken from your wedding film, in addition to your regular edit(s) which are formatted and ready for uploading to Facebook.

DVDs (if you must) – Standard Definition quality

Your wedding film DVDs come in a custom ‘Bride & Groom Films’ presentation box. I generally don’t recommend DVD quality as DVDs are not capable of displaying HD or 4K imagery.

4K USB flash drive

Keep in mind that you can download your 4K wedding video files yourself from your online portfolio. This option merely provides the same files to you on a USB flash drive. You can back up your wedding film and archive it as you wish, and can view your film wherever your USB flash drive can be connected. Most DVD and Blu-ray players, games consoles and TVs, desktop and laptop computers have a USB connection.

All files are .mp4 format. This file format is compatible with pretty much everything.

‘The Masterpiece’ Extended Short Film Edit

This is an extended short film edit. It includes more of the wedding day, incorporating more speeches, more of the ceremony, more of your guests mingling, and more audio in general to help build an emotion-filled story. It could be anywhere from 15 – 30 minutes in duration.

The ‘Masterpiece’ film is provided to you in your own online wedding film portfolio in 4K (available to watch at any resolution you choose), and you can easily view, share and download from here.

Having this edit is completely separate to your other standard wedding film edits, which typically include the feature film edit from the preparations to the first few dances, and then the short film. ‘The Masterpiece’ is a great option for couples who want a longer short film, showcasing much more of your wedding story.

Short Film / Feature Film

Add a short film or a feature film edit to The Coppola Package. You can see examples of short films on the FILMS page. Tarantino Package has four edits (feature, short, extended short, and trailer). Scorsese Package has a feature and a short. With our Coppola Package, you have the option to have a short film edit, or a feature film edit. You can also add edits to the Coppola package. All of the wedding video packages are fully customizable, or you can build your own package from the ground up here.

Raw footage and audio

All of your raw, unedited audio and wedding video footage provided on a USB flash drive. Also included is the raw, unedited ceremony music file. It’s advisable to have some knowledge of video formats, as this is professional 4K footage taken from professional cameras and recorders and “out of the box” it won’t look or sound like it will in your edits.

Add Groom Prep to Coppola Package

Add groom prep filming to The Coppola Package.

Blu-ray (HD)

Your Blu-ray discs come in a custom ‘Bride & Groom Films’ presentation box.

Bridal Party / Guest Messages

This is a chance for your bridal party/guests, who didn’t have a chance to make a speech, to relay a short message of best wishes and congratulations to the couple on their wedding day.

This is normally discreetly done after dinner as the band is setting up, usually with the help of the Best Man. It is done in a quiet area, usually outside the main function room, so that clean audio can be recorded without background noise, and for the privacy of the people leaving the message.

The messages are usually either humorous or heartfelt. Your guests will in no way be made to feel uncomfortable, embarrassed or asked “interview-style” questions. Richard does not go from table to table, putting people “on the spot”. In years to come, you will fondly look back on these cherished moments involving friends and family.

You could even provide Richard with questions to ask your bridal party/guests. Consider the fun you could have with that one!

Ceremony Music

You will receive your wedding ceremony music (recorded independently on a high quality audio recorder, split into separate tracks, and provided to you via downloadable link). Perhaps you have a friend or relative performing at your wedding? This would make an ideal gift for them, and would be a nice keepsake for future listening.

Additional hourly coverage

Photo Slideshow

Provide us with up to 50 photographs in a digital format and we will create a slideshow set to music. This slideshow will be its own self-contained chapter at the end of your wedding video. Some images of the both of you from when you were young, perhaps, and progressing throughout the years to the present day. You could also include some honeymoon images as well.
