Post-wedding Review: Fotowerke (Videographer)

I just got my wedding video!!!

Service: 5/5
Firstly, just to establish the time line better, I contacted Celestine from Fotowerke 1 month before the actual day, asking if he was available. Usually videographers are booked at least 6 months to a year in advance so our wedding was pretty last minute – a little treat to ourselves because we had saved so much anyway.

I had found them on and they came with so many good reviews and recommendations. Celestine was quick to reply to my enquiry and was quick to reply all my subsequent replies. All in all it took a week of to and fro before we went to view some samples at his house which we loved. He was very warm and informative.

Style: 4/5
On the day of the wedding Celestine’s colleague (Wei Sing?) was the one to film the whole day. He was pretty quiet and shy, which is good in a way because they style was less directive and more candid. They didn’t tell us to do poses or intrude into private moments. I had hoped for more colour correction especially in some lightings – things either turned out slight yellow or orange.. but if you are not that picky on the colour correction then the video was simple and really sweet.

I don’t really like too stylized or too cheesy stuff.. They really hit a good spot. Simple but not boring.

Price: 5/5
They were so friendly on my pocket!! And I absolutely love them for this. To be honest, I might have this DVD on replay for the next few weeks, but after that, I may play it for special occasions only. Not worth spending $3000 on. Fotowerke quoted me $1,200 for 1 whole day + 2 sets of DVD of the whole day. About 2 hours of show time. I did not want a highlight video for dinner cause my photographer’s package already included a slideshow highlight.

I don’t know if they still quote this price – but if they do, rest assured its a good deal.

Quality: 5/5
The waiting time was 6 weeks. My DVDs were hand delivered to my office in a hard-cover embossed box that read Fotowerke. The CDs had a very nice rose print with our names and date printed on the front of the CD which noted if it was the wedding day or banquet. Really high quality stuff.


Overall: 4.8/5
Can’t imagine I almost didn’t engage a videographer at all! I would have missed out on reliving the entire day in 2 hours of DVD. Fotowerke did an amazing job for the amazing price they had. They were professional and friendly. No regrets at all and come highly recommended by me. 🙂

I wonder if anyone still comes here… Hello, anyone there?

Heh. Well, it’s true, the wedding is over. I don’t have much to update unless I have another wedding coming up (which I hope never happens, and if it does, it’s not mine!) so this space has been left to rot in the emptiness of the ever-expanding world wide web. Most reviews are done, unless you brides were looking into getting something more detailed about other things I didn’t review about, let me know.

Photography (Bittersweet by Joseph) and videography (fotowerke) have not given me their deliverables yet. I’m trying not to be the impatient bride who chases and hounds them every minute of everyday and just wait it. Beside, you can’t rush art! 🙂

Contract does state the completion to be 4 to 6 weeks from the wedding day. We are currently in the 4th week so it shouldn’t take too long more, right??? I’ll write their reviews when they come in.

Photos from my Aunt.



3 weeks on… 

I still haven’t gotten my photos or video from my vendors yet and I’d rather wait patiently then to email blast them everyday. I’ll share more when I get them back. 🙂

Enjoy the photos!
