5 Reasons You Should Film Your Wedding

By  | 

Most couples have a wedding photographer, but what about a videographer? Filming the big day is becoming increasingly popular for many couples, and there are a few important reasons why you should incorporate it into your planning:

Here’s 5 reasons you should consider videoing your wedding:

1. Relive the bits you missed

You will, unavoidably, miss some great moments that happen at your wedding simply due to not being able to be in more than one place at a time! A wedding video gives you the chance to not only relive the celebrations, but see the parts of it that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to.

2. Don’t miss the opportunity

Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! All of your family, friends, and loved ones are gathered, dressed to impress, in one place at the same time. They’re here for just one day to celebrate your marriage, the day you’ve worked hard to arrange and spent a lot of money on. Capturing it on film is a fantastic opportunity and one you won’t want to miss.

3. Share the love with those who couldn’t be there

A professional wedding film is a great way to share the occasion with those who couldn’t be there with you, whether it was due to sickness, distance or unexpected events.

4. It’s a live-action keepsake 

Video trumps photography as it really captures the atmosphere of certain moments, unlike still frames. You will be able to feel the emotion, hear the laughter, and be warmed by the smiles and well-wishes all over again. Plus, the live action keepsake will be treasured by your children and theirs in years to come.

5. You won’t regret it!

Plenty of couples regret the decision to leave out a wedding film, and those who made the investment are always glad they did so!  Seeing the finished product and all the special moments of your day compiled onto video is a unique and moving way to capture the day forever. It’s a win-win.

If you are investing in a wedding film, it’s important that you consider the quality, personality, and style of film you want. A professional videographer will be able to show you a portfolio of sample work, as well as testimonials from previous clients.

You should be able share your ideas comfortably, confident that they are being listened to and understood. Check for high quality editing and sound in sample finished products, and remember that there are no-frills packages available if you would like a wedding video but are trying to manage a tight budget.
