How does travel and accommodation work?
We are wedding videographers based in Durban, South Africa and are very available to travel to where ever your big day is, either in South Africa or all over the globe.
If your wedding is within a reasonable driving distance from Durban we work out our travel costs based on the AA rates, which is R5.00 per km. If the destination is 1.5 hours outside of Durban and a finishing time of later than 8pm we may ask for accommodation for the night.
Can we meet before the wedding?
Absolutely! We love to meet our couples before hand to get to know each other a little better and discuss your special day. If you are not based in Durban we can meet on Skype.
How does our use of hours work?
Each of our packages differs in the amount of filming time. The best thing to do is go through your schedule together and work out the best start and finish time from there. You are more than welcome to add extra hours to your package but your hours can’t be split into two amounts. If on the day you exceed the hours that we have been booked for you will incur a charge of R1500 per hour.
