How long does a videographer stay at a wedding?

As a videographer I plan to arrive part way through the bridal preparations in order to film the later stages of hair and make up. I plan to leave after the first dance unless there is something else to be filmed after the first dance.

As an example I once stayed later to film a firework display. Of course I was mostly interested in the couples reactions rather than the fireworks themselves.

So I am thinking usually about working at the venue from 9am to 8 or 9pm. I also need to consider travel time to and from the venue and most of my bookings take place within an hours drive from York.

I have filmed some weddings further afield but in these cases I have had to consider overnight accommodation and charge accordingly.
