Do You Need a Videographer


Wedding photographs are a beautiful keepsake, with a photographer seemingly a permanent fixture in almost every couples wedding budget. When it comes to film, however, lots of couples are unaware of the fabulous moments, above and beyond the still frames delivered by a photographer.

A videographer can capture on their big day the motion, clarity, and above all sound, meaning that film could be considered the ultimate memento for reliving your special day forever more.

Here are some important times within the wedding day that are ideal moments to be captured on video.

1. Groomsmen/Bridal preparation

“Understandably, not every couple wants to be filmed getting ready in the morning, but a good videographer will melt into the background and quietly capture the story of your transformation into bride and groom. The morning of a wedding provides a treasure trove of beautiful natural moments that make priceless memories.

2. The vows

“Whether you are getting married in a church, registry office, or on top of a mountain, you’ll still have the same anticipation and excitement. With film you get the looks, the touches, the words, and the reactions of those closest to you as they witness the pinnacle – the moment all those months of planning have been building towards – of your wedding day.

3. The speeches

“The speeches are a special part of a wedding day. They’re a rare opportunity for the speakers to say a few words about the important people in their lives in front of all of their loved ones – and of course, a chance for the best man to perform his set! Sometimes it’s the groom who gets the biggest laugh of the day though…

4. Special messages

“Your wedding guests will be divided into three categories when they find out about the Video Guestbook; those who definitely don’t want to get in front of camera to leave you a message, those who will after four glasses of wine (and will probably sing too!), and those who have been preparing their performance since they found out on Facebook you have booked a videographer.

It gives your guests a chance to congratulate you, and acts a quiet corner after the formal part of your day is over for your guests to leave a few precious words of love for you.

5. The first dance

“It’s a privilege to be asked to film such a special day in someone’s life, and one of the most openly intimate moments of a wedding can be the first dance. Stills can go so far to capture its essence, but for a true record of the cadence and emotion you need the movement of film.”

Above we have listed five good reasons why you should consider a professional videographer for your wedding day.
