CHOOSING YOUR MUSIC
Online Wedding Film Highlights
Due to copyright laws we are unable to use well know commercial tracks for our wedding film highlights so instead use custom music scoring from musicbed.com
If you don’t license your music, it is likely that social media sites will take your video down for copyright infringement. Facebook, Youtube and Vimeo all have track detection that allows them to find music that has been registered, and automatically flag and remove it until a proof of proper licensing has been provided. What this effectively means is that if you don’t use a licensable track, you may never be able to share your video with your friends and family online… and that would be a shame!
The way we work is that we ask our couples to check out the library of our music provider, The Music Bed, and choose a song that they would like to feature in their wedding highlights. The website allows you to filter songs by genre, mood and tempo. You can even select whether or not you would like an instrumental or vocal track. Instrumental tracks allow us to use real time audio from your wedding day. This could be a heartfelt speech, words from your wedding vows or a reading from a loved one. Using a song with vocals however makes this much more difficult as singing can distract from the real time audio, it is ok if you would like a vocal track but worth keeping this in mind when choosing your music.

Your full length wedding film
We are often asked “How long will are full-length wedding film be?”. To put it simply, this varies depending on your wedding day. Your full-length wedding film will contain many montages from your day (similar to your wedding highlights) and be edited to music of your choice. The film will also include your full ceremony, speeches and first dance. Depending on how long your ceremony and speeches last will ultimately determine the duration of your full-length wedding film. On average a full-length wedding film lasts between 60-90mins.
In order to complete your full-length wedding film we will need a selection of songs, which you feel, will best sum up your wedding day. Around 8 songs should be plenty for us to work with however depending on the duration of these songs we may or may not use all of them. It is usually best to choose songs with a variety of tempo so that we have the option of using slower paced tracks as well as more upbeat songs.
You can send your list of songs to us via our contact page or email them to:
