We've compiled a list of frequently asked questions for your convenience. If you have other questions, feel free to email
our studio manager at info@ourweddingdiary.co.in

Is this a real wedding film?

Yes it is! We are glad to bring the flavour of films to real people. The moments that we shoot and the films that we produce allow you to relive the biggest moments of your life in the most memorable way.

How much do your films cost?

The budget of the films depend upon a number of factors such as the size, the type of the wedding, your story, personality, how much of the wedding you want to remember, the size of crew and the inclusive of other talent. Each wedding film is customisable based on your needs. Our shortest films (Wedding Mini Series) have a price range of INR 30k - 3L (approx. $450 - $4500) and the longest can go upto INR 5L (approx. $7500). You can avail additional services such as a personalised original soundtrack, 360 videos, on-site edits etc at an additional cost. However each wedding is unique and so your films could cost a little less, or much more. Our packages are flexible in order to meet your requirements. So whether you're having a Bollywood style grand production or an intimate backyard wedding, we'd like to treat it with the poignancy and grandeur it deserves. Write to us at info@ourweddingdiary.co.in and we'll surely do our best to make it work for you.

Do you offer same-day edits? Can you make the trailer or a short film of the wedding so that we can show it at the Reception / Last day?

Although we offer the service of same-day edits, but it is not what we recommend because a film made in a rush may take its beauty from it. However if you wish to hire this service, we would recommend you to have a small trailer covering the best moments of the wedding to be showcased on the last day. However, this is an expensive process (extra equipment and setups are required for an extra editor to produce this) and adds to the final cost of the package.

How big is your crew? What is the typical team strength of OWD that will be travelling to cover my wedding? Will a reduction in crew affect the cost?

Our films and photographs are captured in order to perfectly suit your wedding, and so is our crew who are experienced in giving your moments the perfect touch. We have a wounderful team of three (for cinematography), a separate team of three (for photography) and a beautiful team of ten. We never compromise on production value so you can trust our instinct on how many people you would need. We usually film with a crew of 3-4 cinematographers (candid style) and 2-3 photographers (candid and documentary style) along with one director and an aerial drone. The crew works as a team with different cameramen specialising on different lenses and styles including aerial and underwater filming. We dont recommend a reduction in the size of the crew as this is likely to affect the quality of the film.

Do you also do photography?

Yes we offer the photography services too. We have a separate team of experienced photographers for capturing your memorable moments on your big day. Our Cinematography and Photography team has a similar creative wavelength with respect to storytelling. When both the teams are working together then the entire team of Our Wedding Diary have a perfect co-ordination and balance. Avail both the services together for your big day and you will get the absolute best to look back upon!

Can I opt for only still photographs or video or does the package have to include both?

During a wedding shoot, the stills and the video teams should have harmony and co-ordination for the benefit of client coverage and to avoid getting into each others frames. We usually cover both together to ensure perfect synchronicity of images and film coverage but in rare cases we have accommodated an odd request to allow a photo team to work alongside for wedding coverage.

What are the common deliverable that we can expect as part of the package?

In the standard and the most preferred package, we deliver three different wedding films and all digital photographs that include both candid, traditional and documentary style. All films and photos are delivered on a 1 or 2 Terabyte Hard drive or 32 or 64 Gigabyte pen-drives. To enable the viewing of these files on a TV or a screen, we also have provisions to deliver the final edited films on pen-drives. We have two categories of films – Full Featured Film and the Wedding Mini Series. The full featured film will contain one full video while the wedding mini-series consist of three versions – 1) Full wedding Films (FF) - The entire footage of your wedding ceremony in a film format edited minimally with soft instrumental music and of max 10 minute in length. 2) The Wedding highlight film (HL) - A 30-35 minute version of the best moments of your wedding blended with your story as narrated by you and your loved ones. Instead of a full 30-35 minutes of highlight film you can also have your highlight film divided into short episodes of 5-10 minutes with the best memories of each event and these can be played together as one film. 3) A three-minute trailer (TR) - A 2-3-minute teaser film that you may release on social networking sites for your friends and family to see, reminisce and cherish. For featured film- The duration of your featured film will depend on what kind of wedding it was. If you avail this service, then the wedding films are nothing short of 60-90 minutes. In the Photography section you will get 500-700 of the best photos chosen by you in edited format and all the photos color and exposure corrected. For Coffee Table Book or Albums please refer to the later FAQs. For more information, feel free to contact us.

What is the difference between the feature film and the mini-series?

If you're concerned about the quality of the films, don't be! The team at Our Wedding Diary always delivers the finest. The major difference between the two is the duration, the pricing and the size of the crew which is smaller for the mini-series. The feature film is one continuous film which is generally 60-90 minutes in duration and costs INR 1,00,000 per day whereas the mini-series is a combination of Full Wedding Film (FF), Wedding Highlight (HL) and Trailer (TR). The pricing for the Mini Series starts at INR 30,000 for 1 day, INR 50,000 for 2 days and INR 70,000 for 3 days.

How long are your films?

The duration of your film will depend on what kind of wedding it was. If you avail the feature film service, then the wedding films are nothing short of 60-90 minutes. If you avail the Wedding Mini Series package, then your film will be divided into three categories- 1) Full wedding Films (FF) - The entire footage of your wedding ceremony in a film format edited minimally with soft instrumental music and of length max 10 minute. 2) The Wedding highlight film (HL) - A 30-35 minute version of the best moments of your wedding blended with your story as narrated by you and your loved ones. Instead of a full 30-35 minutes of highlight film you can also have your highlight film divided into short episodes of 5-10 minutes with the best memories of each event and these can be played together as one film. 3) A three-minute trailer (TR) - A 2-3-minute teaser film that you may release on social networking sites for your friends and family to see, reminisce and cherish. For more information, feel free to contact us.

What is a pre-wedding shoot and how do we go about it?

A pre-wedding shoot is a photo/video shoot of the couple done before the wedding that portrays the bond they share with each other. Since the wedding is a hectic time to be together, the couple get this day off with each other to shoot some "Relaxed, Together & Fun" images and videos in casual outfits (different from the heavy wedding outfits) and this photo/video footage can be used in the highlight film or as a separate two-minute pre-wedding film that can be shown during the sangeet or the wedding. A typical pre-wedding shoot lasts between 4-6 hours. The clothes / styling / makeup / location booking (if done in rented location) for the pre-wedding shoot is to be arranged by you please. We recommend only the couples and their siblings or one or at the most two best friend to be present on the site of the shoot because we don't want to crowd it and get disturbed while shooting. Likewise please do the makeup by yourself and do not bring any make up artist separately.

Is it possible just to get a pre-wedding shoot without opting for the complete wedding package?

Yes, off course it is possible. Though we believe in a start to end coverage yet we do shoot stand-alone pre-wedding films. But it will be an icing on the cake if you book with us your wedding too because then we will be able to add some of the pre wedding shots to your highlight films. This serves as a great start to the final highlight film. For only pre wedding shoots write to us at info@ourweddingdiary.co.in

Can OWD prepare a coffee table book or albums of the photographs?

Yes we do offer this service. However the coffee table book or album is included within the complete package of photo and video only. In this regard we are partnered with the world’s best designing and album printing company – “GRAPHI STUDIO” in Italy. As a thumb-rule, approximately 200 images can be incorporated into one album. All images are edited (skin blemishes are cleaned and colors are enhanced) and the album is custom designed to suit your requirements. There are a lot of options for album in GRAPHI STUDIO’s collection and you can choose whichever you want to avail. The cost of the album depends on the quality and brand of printing. Usually we will recommend you to go for the top quality album which is in the price range of INR 30000-35000. For the complete package you need to tell us which type of album you want to avail before signing off the contract and once chosen, the “type” of the album won’t be changed at a later stage.

What are the number of photographs that will be provided in the package? Also the total number of edited photographs and the format in which they would be provided?

Its difficult to determine the total number of images we will be shooting over a typical three day wedding. Approximately 3000-4500 images are expected to be shot during a typical three-day wedding. All images are given to the client in high resolution JPEG format on a 1 / 2 TB hard drive (digital delivery) provided to us by the client and ALL the images are colour and exposure edited. The images are shot both in candid and traditional style.

Do we get the raw footage? How is it usually delivered?

Everything that has been shot by us is your property. We dont hold back anything. You get all the RAW videos and photos as well as the final videos and edited photos on a 1 or 2 Terabyte hard drive provided by you. The RAW videos are clips of the videos shot by all our cameras (They may be useful for edits later like first anniversary / 25th anniversary etc.)

Are there any other hidden costs other than the ones mentioned to us prior to sign-off?

The expenses for the travel, food and accommodation for the crew members are borne by the client. In addition, the hard drives for the RAW files and final delivery are paid for by the clients too. Any additional days / hours of shooting (not mentioned in contract) shall be charged extra. There are no other hidden costs.

How soon will I get my film? What is the estimated time of delivery of all deliverables? What do you need from us after the wedding for the completion of the project?

The feature film could take us between 2 to 6 months to create whereas the mini-series could take between to 2 to 4 months. But we've been told it's worth the wait! As per the contract we deliver everything within 60 to 180 days after the wedding. This means the simpler deliverables like images are delivered within 60-90 days after the wedding depending on the seasonal work load specially during the peak wedding season when we could run into a backlog of 15-20 days. The highlight film and trailer usually take upto 90-120 days for the delivery. We need two basic documents from the couple for the completion of the Highlight film in time - First is their music selection (various sound tracks you want for various sections / events of the film) and second is the credits title (family names) for the opening and closing sections of the film. A delay in the submission of these documents will exponentially delay the delivery dates of the highlight film. As a thumb-rule, we expect to receive these two documents from the couple within 25-30 days after the wedding.

Why does it take 120-180 days for the delivery of our wedding highlight film?

Film editing is a tedious and creative process and we work with some of the best editors in the industry who are perfectionists and believe in the highest quality of film editing. After seeing hours and hours of footage they select the best of the best shots for the HL film and naturally all this takes time. As a thumb-rule, each minute of final edit takes about one day to finalise once the final edit begins. Rest assured, once you see your final HL film, the wait will be well worth the time.

What if the delivery is delayed by OWD?

First of all we are very punctual, so the delivery won't be delayed. It is very rare that the delivery of the film is delayed. But it is possible that the director of film is unhappy with some portions of the film and requests for a revision / re-edit - in which case a delay might happen. All we can say is that it is for the benefit of the film and the client. Most great cinema blockbusters have been delayed but have turned out better due to the re-edit. So its all in good spirit. We apologise for the inconvenience (should a delay happen) but assure you that we will not release anything that we dont absolutely adore. So please be patient and give us time to work our magic.

How is the film delivered to us?

Blu-rays and DVDs are fast going out of fashion. So much so that the latest computer systems dont even have DVD readers anymore! With everything moving online, DVD’s are obsolete and so in keeping up with the latest trend, our deliveries are done on USB drives with customised cases. Such pen drives allow you to easily share your film with your family and friends, upload it online, and make as many copies as you like. Also, the quality of film delivered on the USB is much higher than that of DVD or Blu-Ray.

Who decides the music and film name for the Highlight film?

Music and songs selection are hand-picked collectively by the Director, the client and the Edit team. A client co-ordinator from the studio is assigned to co-ordinate with the client for this under the guidance of the creative visualiser of the project. The film names are usually suggested either by the client or the film director and approved by both.

Who decides the music and film name for the Highlight film?

We have always encouraged our couples to send in their choice of songs for the highlight films as per the respective functions but have realised with increasing frequency that with the tremendous variety and range of music, we have received inappropriately different kind of songs that dont suit the sensibility of the edit at all. Selecting film music is complicated. We need the right tracks with the perfect highs and lows so we can create a story line and seamlessly blend the audios into the music track. Very few tracks come close to that perfection here and its difficult to explain why a track works for the edit. Its in this respect we sometimes wish we had a free hand in selecting your songs. However, we do understand that you want to be involved in the selection and be sure that you like the tracks and their feel. Personally we love all music. And the effect it has on your mood, the film flow, the happy vibes some tracks create, the highs and lows etc. One of our most favourite things to do as part of structuring your film is to select the best possible song for each function of the wedding. We imagine exactly where we would place a certain audio byte and how the next part of the song would perfectly match with the mood. Please be assured we were there throughout at the wedding and will only suggest and select songs that match the pace and tempo of the edit. Once this selection is done, we ideally want you to listen to these tracks and should you dislike a certain track we want to be able to offer an alternate option for it. We urge you not to have a preconceived notion about the song or the edit. Let us surprise you because we have done this too long to make any errors anymore. You are very welcome to suggest your choice of songs but its painful to see a wrong edit just because we said yes to your song. We do understand that you may have an all time favourite song and will try our best to include the song but please understand that if we say no to the song its just because we dont want your film to be spoilt on account of a wrong song.

What are audio bytes and why are these important for the quality of the film? How many people can I have in these bytes?

The primary charm of the wedding video is the footage and just so that the events are nicely interlinked, we film interviews with the close family bytes (Bride, Groom, Parents and Siblings / Best-Friends - usually 6 frames) so that there is an underlying story that keeps the viewer connected to the film. As the story unfolds, the viewer gets a sense of how the couple met and decided to spend their lives together. For this, we film about 30-45 mins of audio / video bytes with each of the six frames’ people. This is because we can ask the same questions to different people and place the story in a coherent format in the edit room. Too many frames and bytes in this case will create an edit hotch-potch of sorts and we have faced these situations in the past. Also, it will make the film byte-heavy and we dont want that either. Not to mention that in the middle of the wedding celebrations, it would be impossible to film so many bytes without compromising the quality of the events coverage. The highlight film is usually 35-40 mins long and the ideal proportion of the bytes and footage is 30:70.

When and where should the audio bytes be ideally recorded?

Anywhere with silence in the background. Any time during the wedding. We do not do any interviews / audio bytes after the wedding is over. A rare case exception is understood but usually we lock all interviews on the very first day of the wedding as it gets stressful during the later days.

Do we get to see the Highlight Film before the final delivery?

Once the Highlight film is ready, we invite the couple over for a screening at our studio. Since they are the stars of the film, we want them to see and approve of it first. Should they disapprove of any clip / footage during the first screening, we can make the necessary changes and corrections (in the one round of permissible edit changes) and present the final HL film for the friends and family to see and enjoy. Nothing is delivered / released without the approval of the couple. In case of overseas clients, we deliver a low resolution version of the HL film online through data sharing sites like wetransfer.com/ google drive. The couple can download the film and send us the changes ATMOST within 72 hours. If we do not receive any changes within three days, we will assume that you approve of the film and no changes are required. We will then close your project and deliver the high resolution final rendered version of the film. Any changes after the stipulated three day period shall be charged extra.

Why 72 hours only? Why not within a week-ten days?

As per the contract, we allot 72 hours for any revisions in the highlight film. This is because around all the machines in the studios contain your project files and are linked to each other for the binding of the whole film. Only when we export all project files from these machines, we can move on to the next projects. It’s a complex process. Hence the limited time frame of 72 hours per film for any client revisions.

What is the one round of permissible change allowed once we see the Highlight film?

One round of changes in the Highlight film means that once the couple sees the film for the first time, they can add / delete some clips as per their liking. Some close relatives whose footage is unintentionally missed by the editors can be added in this round. Any other minor changes can also be corrected. But please note that major changes may not be possible. Examples of major changes are - • Addition of an event / events • Changes in music track • Replacement of more than ten clips of friends / relatives • Changes in the film titles / credits etc. For major changes there will be extra charges.

Can we come and see the RAW footage and select our shots?

We shoot thousands and thousands of film clips from multiple cameras and occasionally the total duration of these RAW clips exceeds 50-60 hours of footage for a typical three-day wedding. At the studio, these clips undergo careful conversion and screening and a battery of editors work night and day to create a first cut of the best clips for the chief editor. This process is almost factory-like with editor stations brimming with activity through odd hours. Client interference at this stage not only delays the final edit by double but also disrupts the zen-like concentration of the editors going through the footage in their own space and time. Therefore, we strictly do not permit clients to sit through RAW footage selection. This is the reason we have one round of edit changes. In case the couple is unhappy with some footage he / she can communicate this after the first screening of their film and the changes will be incorporated.

How much in advance do I need to book you?

Generally we recommend to book 6 months or more prior to your wedding. But its only fair we give every enquiry a fair chance to book our dates. Irrespective of how much or how less your film may cost, its a 'first come-first serve' world.

Can we hire another videographer along with OWD?

We absolutely do not recommend it. We like to shoot without rehearsing or making you conscious of our presence and it's hard to do so when you have lights, and cameras all over you. Apart from being uneconomical, it may obstruct and tamper with our work. The advantage of a single team is that we will get clean, unobstructed visual frames without badly dressed / behaved local photographers jumping into our frames and ruining the film moments. We also insist on not more than two photographers if you are availing the photography service from any other team. That way you'll get the best of both!

Will there be a singular point of contact during the wedding onsite?

The film-director or the Director of Photography is your singular point of contact with OWD. Also, from your side, we would love to have a singular point of contact for all wedding shoot co-ordination. The brides / grooms siblings or the best friends are the best people for the job.

Will our trailer or highlight film or full wedding film be released on Social Media as well?

Highlight films are usually uploaded on our Vimeo channel at a nominal cost. We do not release / upload the highlight films on our YouTube / Facebook page. Trailers are shorter, truncated versions and more exciting videos and hence we release them worldwide on our YouTube / Vimeo / Facebook page. However, the release depends on a few factors. Firstly, we do not release trailers of couples who dont want them to be shown publicly. We respect your privacy but this clause has to be specified at the time of signing the contract. Secondly, according to our agreement with social networking sites, if you want the whole world to see your wedding film, then there is a budget allocated for the promotion of each trailer that we put up. Details provided on request.

Can you make me a memory like this even if I'm not getting married?

Birthday, first rice ceremony, maternity, falling in love and anniversary are memorable moments for all of us. Write to us and If we feel there is a story to be told, we would do our best to tell it.

Will our wedding planners, other vendors names feature in the film?

Oh absolutely. And they will love their names on the big screen just like acknowledgements in a feature film.

Is OWD into wedding planning or just coverage?

Currently we are only into coverage but having worked with some of the top wedding management teams, we are happy to suggest some names at no extra costs. An inspired management and decor team naturally act as embellishments for a beautiful film!

Do you guys travel?

Yes we do! All over the world in fact, but you'll have to get us there and give us a place to sleep! However if you keep checking our Facebook page, you'll be able to track us across the globe! We could be in your country when your big day is near!

What are the mode of payments that you accept? How much is the advance amount for confirming the booking dates and at what time do we have to clear your remaining payment and in how many installments?

We accept the following modes of payment- 1. Online Net Banking / NEFT / IMPS (Preferred) 2. Cards - Credit / Debit Cards 3. Cheque 4. Cash (Least Preferred) The Amount of advance booking for the confirmation of the booking dates is 50% of the total package value. There are three installments in which the toal payment has to be made- 1. 50% advance booking, 2. 30% after the completion of the coverage of the events, and 3. 20% after the final delivery of all the items.

What are your cancellation policy?

If informed 1 month or more prior to date of the wedding then the full advance payment is reimbursed.

Are the prices negotiable?

We try our best to fit you in our pricing packages, but making films is a difficult and expensive activity and we do not like compromising on our equipment or talent!
