Editing style: traditional editing style, chronological order
Audio: unedited dialogue, no added music
Length: varies with coverage
Package: Included in all of our packages (Note: some packages include only Ceremony Spotlight Edit)
Delivery: Delivered to you on a USB drive

The spotlight edit is a chronological play back of your ceremony, dances and toasts. All footage shot in these three sequences is synced and dubbed to the natural audio. No other stylistic editing has been applied to this edit. They are not edited in cinematic style like our  Trailer Films and Feature Films.

  • Ceremony, “first” & “parent” dances, and planned speeches are extracted from the raw footage and added to a timeline
  • Audio will be synced to the footage of these three components
  • Please note that our Spotlight Edits are not edited in the style of a cinematic movie. Rather, it is a straightforward playback of what was captured in these three sections, each of which will be separated and identified by an elegant title page.

Our Spotlight Edits are included in all of our packages, but please note that some collections may only include the Ceremony-Only Spotlight Edit. Please check your contract or call us to confirm what your package includes.

If you had booked a Lite Collection from 2017 or earlier, you’ll receive a Ceremony-Only Spotlight Edit like this one below:
