At Molten Sky our approach to filming your wedding day is purely candid storytelling. We work quietly in the background and document your big day as it unfolds with no staged moments.
We are a very professional and friendly company, we take our work very seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously! We shoot with 3-4 Canon C100’S HDSLR cameras to capture your day from multiple angles and place a huge emphasis on high quality audio. We use a range of cinematic film making equipment to create more dynamic and creative footage of your big day. We offer our wedding couples something different from the norm as you can see from our sample videos.
Video offers a different kind of magic that you can’t get from photography. Video captures subtle body language and peoples voices that tell so much about peoples personalities. We suggest you talk to couples who have already got married. They will all tell you that the day goes so fast and that you miss so many moments. Couples who get a wedding video never regret it, some couples that don’t often do.
You will receive a full length documentary style film of your wedding day, usually about 2-3 hours long. For full day coverage, our most popular option, we begin in the morning covering the brides preparation and finish 4-5 after the first dance or 10.30pm at the latest. There is also an option for a cinematic style edit which is usually 15-25 minutes long. please contact us for more details.
Its takes a lot more time to edit the Cinematic Feature Film.
Yes of course, drone footage is included with the Cinematic Feature Film as standard and can be added to the Documentary Film for €150 extra. It goes without saying it all depends on the weather! If we don’t get the shots, you won’t be charged.
The documentary is the most popular choice between the two, with many couples adding on a highlight film as an extra.
We use 3-4 HD cameras at different stages during the wedding day to cover different angles and create more dynamic footage for your personal wedding film. Up to six cameras if you include Drone and gimbal footage.
We send you an online link so you can view and share your wedding film with your family, you can download the HD file and also burn DVDs and BluRays.
We place huge emphasis on the quality of our sound recording throughout your wedding day especially for the ceremony and speeches. We use a broad range of digital recorders and microphones to capture our own audio at the source and never rely on the PA systems of hotels and churches.
Yes we can, we are happy to meet in person to discuss the details of your wedding day. If you are abroad or if it’s more convenient we can arrange a skype or facetime audio call. Although we like to meet our couples before their big day, we have covered many wedding where a meeting was not possible and it was never a problem.
This is ultimately up to you. We usually begin with the bridal preparations in the morning usually about 2 hours before the ceremony. We normally stay until about 4-5 songs after the first dance or 10.30pm, whichever comes first. If you require more than 12 hours coverage extra charges apply.
Every wedding is different and we do not shoot to a mass produced format and as we use multiple cameras and audio devices the process is very time consuming. Depending on the season our wedding films are generally ready 3-6 months after your wedding day. This is just a guide, sometimes it can be a lot sooner, it just depends on the season.
Our most popular locations are Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Athlone, Clare and Limerick , but we are happy to travel all over Ireland to shoot wedding videography and we don’t normally charge travel expenses. We are also available for destination weddings. Please contact us for more details.
For privacy purposes we don’t send out our couples full wedding videos to anyone. If you decide to book us, we won’t send out your wedding video to anyone either. However if you meet us for a consultation we will happily show you sections of different weddings.
Get in touch with us by email or give us a call to see if your wedding date is still available. We can then discuss creating a package to suit your requirements and a deposit of €200 secures your wedding date. We also sign a wedding agreement.
This varies as each wedding is unique, it usually depends on the length of the ceremony and speeches. however, for the a full day documentary package our wedding films are generally about 2-3 hours. Cinematic Feature Films are 15-25 minutes.
Yes of course, we offer extras where we can add photographs of you as kids and old family photos as well as photos of you together before you got married. It is also possible to add photos of your honeymoon if you wish. If you hire us for photography as well it is possible to add a slideshow of your favourite photos too.
Yep, thats no problem at all. You can just list us the start and end times of all the clips and we will edit it together for you.
We want to give you the best quality video possible, so we may have to use small led lights occasionally at some weddings later in the evening at the reception when the ambient light is very low. But we try not too if possible.
Absolutely, we alway welcome ideas and suggestions from wedding couples regarding their wedding video. It is best to discuss this before the big day.
Not unless you ask us to. We tend to leave out the communion and the parts you would hear at any Sunday mass.
Yes, we carry back-up equipment at all times including cameras, lenses, memory cards, batteries, tripods, microphones etc. We are always well covered for any eventuality at every wedding.
No we don’t normally charge a travel fee for mainland weddings. However if your wedding happens to be on a island or if you require us to bring two cars to cover two locations at the same time travel charges my apply.
Yes, thats no problem, DVDs are €75 for 3.
Yes, we shoot true 16:9 widescreen, to suit all television sets, even If you’re not viewing it on a widescreen TV, it will still look great. If you would like a different aspect ration please let us know before your wedding day.

Yes you can, but charges apply. It has never been necessary before.
We use a range of Zoom and Tascam digital recorders, Rode, Shure and Sennheiser microphones, manfrotto and Sachtler tripods and monopods, Cinevate and Konova sliders, a Kessler dolly, a Ronin M gimbal and DJI Phantom 4 drone.
We set up a camera with a microphone at the reception venue after the meal and before the first dance. We don’t go from table to table and ask people to leave a message as we feel this would not be in line with our approach. Ideally we look for about about 15-25 messages. Guest messages are subject to space in the venue (health and safety) and also cooperation from your guests, bridal party and families. Guest messages cost €75 extra.
Yes of course, at an additional cost, sometimes it is worth considering for large weddings, please contact us for more details.
Anytime really, most couples book 12-18 months in advance. As we offer photography services as well so we tend to book up really fast, so we would recommend booking us sooner rather than later.
We normally keep wedding video footage for about 1 month after sending out your HD file.
A deposit of €200 secures our services and the balance is paid on the day.
We dress smartly on your wedding day and wear a suit or shirt & tie depending on the weather. We like to blend in with your guests.
