Our goal is to capture your wedding day from the perspective of an insider.
It’s about intimacy.
It’s about love.
In a world of complex choices, we keep things simple. We like to capture your day in its entirety and produce a short film for you to cherish forever.
We would love you to choose us based on our style, attention to detail, and the quality of the music we select to compliment your film. We don’t believe that the emotion of your day can be captured without all three of these elements.
Why choose Thalia and John Films?
We have a personalized, hands-on approach to every wedding. We only take on one wedding per day so your wedding gets our full attention from booking, filming, and editing to receiving your final product.
With years of experience in the wedding industry, we can guarantee that we know the ins and outs of your wedding day to a T. We are filmmakers who pride ourselves on making your wedding film a unique and beautiful piece of art. Each wedding film represents the essence of your personalities and style, while showcasing your stunning wedding.
We have a creative, avant-garde approach to filming weddings. We tell your love story by finding the perfect balance between the natural moments of your day and the stylized shoot, combining documentary and semi-cinematic styled videography to create a beautiful wedding film that is true to your personality, style, and story.
We use Canon DSLR Cameras with a range of professional lenses. We use lapel microphones and external audio sound recorders to get the best audio for your ceremony and speeches. We only use lights when necessary, and we have professional LED lights on hand.
Yes, but only if the wedding venue is over 40km from Durbanville. If travel over 80km total is required, we charge the AA rates at the time of your booking.
Yes, if your wedding is over 150km from Durbanville accommodation will need to be provided for us. If over 2 hours of travel is required, accommodation for the night before the wedding is needed too, as we like to be alert and fresh for your wedding day.
Absolutely! We would love to jump on a plane to film your wedding. We love discovering new places. We travel to local weddings around South Africa, and our passports are ready for international weddings too.
Please feed us. It is a long day on our feet carrying heavy equipment, so being able to take seat and refuel is so important for us to do a great job. We don’t need to be seated with your guests, just as long as there is a place for us to sit down for a bit. We also ask that beverages are made available – water and soft drinks are just fine.
For the ceremony, we will use the music that you walk down the aisle to. These songs will be downloaded from iTunes if we do not already have them in our extensive database.
For the highlights reel, we use music purchased from a registered music download site. This music will be based on the personality of your day. Due to copyright laws, we cannot use famous songs in your highlights video for use online.
Editing is a delicate process and requires time, so please allow up to 31 days for the completion of the video. Please note that if the USB needs to be posted, courier costs are not included and will be quoted for separately when the parcel is ready to be sent. Cape Town clients will get their USB personally delivered or can collect from Durbanville.
