Further Client requested changes to their video will be charged at the prevailing daily edit rate.
Delivery of Product
The editing process can take 6-9 weeks, sometimes more, often less (dependent upon the time of year, and how many cameras we used at your event!) from the date of the wedding to completion. Delivery will be delayed if the client fails to send their music choices to the company when requested as the edit will not start until these are received. Delivery will be by Recorded First Class Royal Mail and must be signed for.
