Taupo and Central North Island Wedding Videos

wedding video in taupo

Hello, thanks for visiting and congratulations on your engagement. My name is Andrew Whyte. I photographed weddings for 10 years in New Zealand under my Whyte Weddings brand earning a great reputation. In 2014 Cathy and I went to the UK for a few years and returned to live in the beautiful lakeside town of Taupo. I became passionate with documentary film making many years ago and I now focus only on videography.

My style is reportage, meaning, I cover the important elements of your day so you will remember them and the people involved forever more. Reportage style is perfect for wedding day shoots as there is little directing involved and is less intrusive. Your ceremony and speeches will be fully covered and I will make you a special 10 minute highlights video posted on Vimeo. An example of this is below. For presentation products of the videos I am all about your choices.

I shoot with multiple cameras and sound devices to capture the emotion of your day from different angles and I am innovative, sometimes I give the kids and guests a selfie stick to get some fun footage you can see in my sample. I also believe in being un-intrusive because I don't want to turn your wedding day into a Wellywood movie set. I apply many days of comprehensive editing resulting in videos that are interesting and compelling memories.
For simplicity I offer one videography package at a fair price for the time and expertise involved.

Wedding Day VIDEO
... from the brides house till the first dance.

  • You will get FULL edited coverage of the entire ceremony and the speeches filmed with multiple cameras from different angles and a 10 minute highlights video of the full day. An example of this is below.

  • Videos are presented to you in HD on a USB stick OR on DVD/BluRay if you prefer. DVD is low quality video and BluRay is High Def but you need a specialist player as you might know. For streaming I can also post the highlights video on the professional online platform called Vimeo with the privacy settings of your choice. I don't use YouTube for weddings.

  • Anywhere considered but prefer within 2 hours drive of my Taupo base including Tauranga, Waikato, Hawkes Bay or Tongariro. Drone footage can be available as an option by negotiation to add that extra wow factor to your highlights video. I go to one getting ready location.

  • $1,795 plus travel costs if outside of Taupo. No stress if speeches go on longer than anticipated and the time of the 1st Dance is delayed for any reasons. Includes either a USB stick OR a DVD/BluRay disk in a printed cover.

  • DVDs can be produced for you and for your family ($60 for the first one and $40 for more in the same order). DVD's are good in Standard Def but I can supply the higher quality HD files on the USB stick to play on devices. A lot of people still have DVD and BluRay players as you would know even though the computer companies are phasing them out.

  • SPECIALS. 10% off for the next 5 bookings (early bride discount) so please contact me below. Special may change soon so contact me now.

I would like to thank Rachel and Joshua for letting me showcase their wedding on my page


Music Policy...

What about music in videos? Most current pop songs are copyright and we can't legally use and share them online without massive costs, however we can use part of them if they are your walk in music and party music played over a speaker. For the highlights video I use the Song Freedom music library which has lots of great wedding songs and the cost of the music is included in your wedding package. We will work through this together to get the right music during the editing process. If you have any questions then please ask.
