Now we have completed your edit and graded the footage our focus now turns to your audio not only will we adjust the levels so the sound is consistent throughout and look to remove any hum or noises during the speeches and main ceremony.
Great care is then taken to dub over the music in the first dance and a couple of the tracks being played during the nights entertainment so everything is clear and sharp great skill and attention to detail is then taken to reintroduce background noise the sounds of people singing "I Will Survive" back over the top of the audio dub that we have previously edited in to make the sound as pin sharp and crisp as possible but yet still capture the atmosphere and unmissable renditions of old time favorites from your new inlaws.
Whilst we use the best available audio editing techniques and equipment there may be certain areas of audio that we simply cant enhance so always take as much care as possible when caturing audio and keeping background noise to a minimum for advice check out our Video Audio Guide.
