Drone Video & Photography services
What is a drone?
A drone is simply an unmanned aircraft. These image-capturing aircrafts can film and photograph from a unique aerial perspective, providing high quality cinematic footage and photos to treasure forever. Drones are increasingly becoming a ‘must-have’, to help capture those unforgettable wedding moments.
Why are they ideal for weddings?
Drones can be a fantastic option to consider when you choose your wedding videography and photography, as they can be used in a variety of ways. They can capture key moments of the day – such as videoing a special moment between the bride and groom or perhaps photographing a big group of guests from above. Drone filming can look so spectacular, because the footage can really reveal the grandeur of a wedding venue and its surroundings.
Who would control the drone at the wedding?
The pilot (who operates the drone from the ground using controls) is responsible for the overall safety of the flight. Guests must not do anything to compromise that, such as distracting them during the flight. There are rules that drone operators follow to ensure that everyone is as safe as possible whilst the drone is flying.
Can I control the drone?
It’s best to leave drone flying to the professionals – after all, learning to fly a drone often takes hundreds of hours of practice. Drones aren’t toys. The controls are pretty complex and aren’t something that you can simply just pick up.
Do you have any tips for couples that are hiring a drone for their wedding?
The key thing when planning your drone wedding photography is to allow time to capture the event and carefully choose the moments when it flies. An ideal moment to capture would be between the ceremony and the reception whilst the guests are socialising. A classic drone wedding shot is to position all the guests together with the bride and groom in the centre whilst the drone ascends into the sky – everyone will appear in the frame and get smaller and smaller as the drone flies away.
Will the weather have to be taken into consideration?
Yes. It’s worth noting that drones can’t fly in rain or high winds. The pilot will tell you if the weather conditions are unsuitable for flying.
Are drones noisy?
Drones, vows and speeches don’t go together because of the noise that the drones make. Drones aren’t quiet because they have high-powered motors, which turn the propellers to produce the uplift. It’s best to talk to your drone pilot, guests and venue, so that you can arrange when the drone needs to be grounded for the important bits.
Will the photography be high quality?
We will be able to offer a range of cameras to suit your budget. When you go to pick a camera, you should consider your wedding budget, how much material you plan to film and how good you want your pictures or video to look. Our cameras range from 1080P 180 degree to full 4K still and video. Please get in touch for a full quote.
Will I need to get permission from my venue to have a drone?
Yes. Arranging to have a drone at a wedding requires considerable planning and preparation, so give yourself enough time to discuss the safety considerations with our pilot and the venue, bear in mind for each venue permission must be acquired and approved through the CAA before flying, so time is required. However, the effort spent in the planning stage is well worth it, since nothing comes close to capturing breath-taking and unique aerial footage and photos on one of the biggest days of your life!
