Wedding in Abbey of Saint Galgano: A Magic Place in Chiusdino

This wonderful place is much more than an area that conveys nostalgia, melancholy and a desire to meditate. It is a place that unites those who believe in love, which accompanies them in the construction of an indissoluble bond, the bond of marriage.

What do you think about my videos? Let's keep in touch!


Ready to answer to all of your questions and needs

Sure! You can request the price quotation by calling me or filling out the form. 

Absolutely not. The conclusion of a contract indicates first of all the professionalism of the videographer and at the same time protects the customer. Mine is a very synthetic contract with no small news.

The final product is divided in three parts:

  • Video trailer (from 2 to 4 minutes).
  • Film (from 10 to 15 minutes).
  • Extra videos (these are video clips in addition containing speeches, dances and other things).
However, nothing prevents you from extending your requests while signing the contract.

The payment is divided in three parts:

  • 40% to block the date with signing of the contract.
  • 30% fifteen days before the ceremony date.
  • 30% after checking the videos.
As soon as I receive the last payment, you can download the videos from my personal Google Drive.

Generally, not more than 90 working days, as written in the contract. However, in special cases, after agreements at the contractual stage, delivery times may be shortened.

The videos are delivered in digital format via my Google Drive. However, upon extra payment, you can request a usb pen box set on which you can keep a copy of the videos.
supporto fisico sul quale conservare copia dei video.

By contract I guarantee my presence, as well as that of my collaborators and assistants called for related services requested. 

For years so far, I have chosen not to charge for the drone as for a service apart, so it is already included in my basic package and there is no increase in price. This instrument will be used at my discretion, where there is needed. 

Generally, for the duration of the event until the cake cut. After that, I always try to stay at least an hour longer to catch some other interesting moments before leaving. However, it is possible to make me stay further. In that case I offer another package called “after party”. 

Yes, you can make some small changes to the video such as scene changes. It is not possible to change the music because the music is always chosen by the couple before starting the assembly phase.
