Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. It’s a day to remember, a day where you want the best and most sentimental details to be captured. We want the same at Wedding Movies. It’s so important to us that each couple sees their individual story told and captured in a way unique to them. Here are our top 5 picks for your videographer capture on your special day:
The preparations are too often overlooked when planning a wedding. It’s the last time that you have with your girls before you take that step into marriage, and it’s usually full of so many laughs that it’s a time that you want your videographer to be there for. And don’t you want to capture your soon-to-be husband going bowling with his friends before the wedding instead of getting ready? Those are the moments that you want to keep and watch back in the years to come.
A touch that we love to add when filming the preparations is to interview both you and your fiancee separately. We ask you questions about how you are feeling, how you met the love of your life, how he proposed – all the questions that help to tell your story. These moments are beautiful to watch together after your wedding. It means you can look back and see how excited and nervous each other were. It’s also so beautiful to see each other talk about the other person when they’re not around with so much love and respect. It’s definitely a moment you will want to make sure is captured!
2. First Look
The first look is on everybody’s list and for good reason. It’s the priceless moment when you are walking down the aisle and you see each other for the first time. You see the anticipation to step into your future written all over each other’s faces. Nothing beats this moment. But there are some that are definitely close by. We suggest including the first look with the parents and the bride/groom. The looks of pride and love on their faces when they see their child grown and about to begin a marriage themselves is a moment that you should keep in your memories as long as you can. As the years pass, you won’t regret having your videographer capture this moment.
The venue is painstakingly chosen. It’s usually the first thing you choose and it sets the tone for the rest of your wedding. It’s beautiful and you have decided it is the perfect place to celebrate you as a couple. Wouldn’t you love to have that captured by your videographer?
One of the ways to capture a venue that is becoming more and more popular is the use of a drone. It adds an amazing cinematic effect to your wedding video and makes it feel as though you were in your very own romance movie. It creates that fairytale feel and really adds a whole new dimension to your video.
4. Video Guest Book
As much as your wedding day is to celebrate your love and future, it is also a great opportunity for all of your friends and family to meet together. Guest books are a lovely way to remember that occasion, but a video guest book takes it a step further. We love organising to have your friends and family filmed. It’s something that you can look back on in the years that follow and see their faces as they wish you all the best in your future together.
5. Unique Moments
A great way to ensure that your sentimental moments and unique story is captured is by having two videographers on the job. Having a second person there means that you have a second set of eyes and that is when that one in a million shot is captured. That moment that everyone else missed when the groom looked so lovingly at his bride while something else had her attention. The nieces and nephews playing in the corner with bubbles while everyone else is focussed on the signing of the registry. All of the little details that breath life into your story – can be captured when there is a second person keeping an eye out for them.
