Bleed is a printing term that refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of the sheet before trimming. In other words, the bleed is the area to be trimmed off. The bleed is the part on the side of a document that gives the printer a small amount of space to account for movement of the paper, and design inconsistencies. Artwork and background colors can extend into the bleed area. After trimming, the bleed ensures that no unprinted edges occur in the final trimmed document.
It is very difficult to print exactly to the edge of a sheet of paper/card so, to achieve this, it is necessary to print a slightly larger area than is needed and then trim the paper/card down to the required finished size. Images, background images and fills which are intended to extend to the edge of the page must be extended beyond the trim line to give a bleed.

We will come with smart casual attire. We have no company uniform because we feel that even though we come from one company, we are all different individuals with different personalities. We are not a wedding factory; our films are never the same, so neither should our look.
Our approach in filming a wedding day is purely candid storytelling, not stage direction. We’ll still interact with you of course, and have a laugh every now and then, but we don’t want to interrupt with the flow of your day. Experience has shown us that this is the best way to capture those real, natural moments as they happen.
