Q. Although we'd love to capture our big day on film, because we're getting married in the winter and it gets dark so quickly, we're worried there might not be the same range of footage available compared to a summer wedding. What would you advise?

A. Mike Savory says: Personally, I love winter weddings but it does take a little more planning to make sure you have time in the schedule for excellent photos and video. Making sure you have a videographer and photographer that work well together helps to ensure you capture all the important moments and saves time. Also talk to your videographer about timings, an earlier ceremony is a good idea as it does give you a little more scope but even if you go for a later slot, there's always plenty of options. Sunset is always a magical time for special shots and even in the winter we get some great sunsets.

I also carry lighting which gives options for creative night scenes, sparklers and smoke bombs can be good fun and create wow-factor too.

So don't worry, winter is definitely an excellent opportunity to have a killer wedding film made. Just because it gets dark earlier doesn't have to deny you the chance to relive your wedding day time and time again!
