Wedding Film Waiting List

 

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding during this very difficult time in my life and my family’s life.
We are almost done with treatment and looking to the future in a very positive way. Your wedding films are very important to us and we have been working when we can to deliver what you have paid for. They will be with you in time, when I am able to work, and they will meet the quality you expect of them.
Thanks again for your support, it has really meant so much to me, Sam and Abbie!

Update 17/9/19: Here’s the number in my backlog… I thought I would post the following to show how many weddings i have exactly in my backlog, to help show how much I am working on:

2018 Weddings - 32
2019 Weddings - 23 (+4 to film)

Thankfully I took on a lot less in 2019, but these numbers will be updated which each completed project. Thank you for your patience and please keep in touch if you need to.

Update 5/8/19: Just over one year since diagnosis… Happy Anniversary? A year ago I was manically focussing on getting the rest of my year covered from a hospital bed, my wife calling each couple individually to let them know there was someone in place to be there in my absence and that things would be fine. I’ve seen companies goes quiet before due to problems in work and their personal lives and I vowed I would never do that to anyone who wanted me to capture their wedding day. You’ve put your trust in me and I wouldn’t let you down, I still won’t. It’s just taking soooo long and I thank each of you for your patience! I’ve now been appointed with an endocrinologist to look at my pituitary gland and thyroid, to see if they can help with tiredness and concentration. Work is progressing with help, I am working on a timeline of getting work done in order of wedding - I cannot make any priorities as it isn’t fair. Weddings on the list up to July 2018 are being completed I would say into October, August to October 2018 will be into December. I will have a better grasp of this list soon, and I have recently posted on Facebook page that I am extending deadlines on 2019 weddings to help prioritise 2018 workload. Thanks again for your patience, it will be worth the wait!

Update 15/5/19: Six months on… I have been getting a number of emails from couples asking directly for updates for their wedding film over the last few months, that their listing on this page hasn’t been updated for months at a time. Unfortunately I am solely working on 40 weddings at the same time (keeping a lot of plates spinning!). From June to December 2018, apart from a few times able to finalise some sneak peeks, I had little to no energy to work on weddings or do anything at all. Months on, reflecting on having to take up work again as soon as treatment finished, I have had sympathetic response from some but not all. Doctors have said if I was in a regular job I would still be on sick leave, but being self-employed I am working through a lot of recovery while filming and editing. And because of where the tumour was, the treatment I had means I am very tired a lot of the time. First time back filming I was on my back for four days straight. Each wedding I have got better but I won’t be 100% until at least 2020 (probably sooner if I wasn’t working).

Editing period from January until now, it may appear that your listing has not been updated but it’s because I have been concentrating on getting as many things done for each couple waiting. Your listing has a sneak peek completed, so I am working on a wedding that doesn’t have something completed. Now it is getting to the point where mostly everyone has something to watch from their wedding day, I can concentrate on finalising work or completing further edits (multicams/video messages), so will see other jobs being completed now. In my tiredness I was ‘scattershot’ completing tasks rather than full projects for the first few months, but now I can concentrate on finishing those full projects.

I have handed off more and more weddings to other editors. I am still working on the finalisation, and the editors are providing me with the multicam edits, so your wedding films will still feel like my work, which is still really important to me. Things are still taking time, but hopefully with more editors working it means things will progress quicker.

Now to answer the ultimate question I receive most - I cannot guarantee that your wedding film will be ready for your first anniversary. Being unable to work for a pretty solid six months means I am incredibly behind with work, which is why I have handed more work off to editors to help me catch up. Thank you very much for your patience, I am getting there slowly but surely. I would rather you had a great wedding film than a boring one. I hope you share my thoughts and understand my situation better, do get in touch if you have any questions about my medical history and work going forward.

Much Love to you all,
Chris, Sam & Abbie xxx
