Some memories are worth more than just a seconds’ worth of a snapshot. That’s why, when
creating a plan for your wedding, it’s important to think about which of your special moments
you might like to turn into a cinematic wedding video. To help with ideas, we’ve put together
a list of three top wedding memories to film on your big day.
The walk down the aisle
For most newlyweds, the moment that their eyes meet across the aisle is one they’ll cherish
forever. However, it can be hard to remember each little second when you’re a puddle of
nerves, so for many, this happy memory can end up being somewhat of a blur.
While you won’t get to do this moment over, having a videographer present at your wedding
means that you’ll be able to capture every minute of your walk down the aisle in full, high-
resolution cinematography, and relive your precious wedding ceremony with your partner for
years to come.
While our friends and family will offer us plenty of love and support throughout our lives,
there’s rarely an occasion that they’ll each write a whole speech’s worth of kind words in our
honour – making this part of your wedding another important one to be treasured.
Of course, the best way to keep this memory alive is to capture it on tape. The father of the
bride, the groom and the best man are likely to thank you for keeping a record of their
moments in the limelight, as will anyone else who took their turn to toast to your everlasting
Guests often look forward to the evening portion of a wedding, where they get to let their hair
down and party. Of course, the most important dance of the night is the bride and groom’s
first dance. However, there’s plenty of reason to savor the memory of your guests dancing,
As long as you haven’t put a no-phone policy in place, you’re likely to find that your guests
take the opportunity into their own hands to get some great candid videos on the dance floor.
On the other hand, if your professional videographer is hired to stay on into the night, they’ll
have the opportunity to get some fun – but more polished – shots of the action.
For the best results, collaborate with your videographer
To ensure that your vision for your wedding video is brought to life, it’s important to work in
partnership with your videographer, or anyone else in charge of filming on your wedding day.
You’ll want to remember to discuss each individual moment that you wish to be captured in
plenty of detail, while also considering the different styles of wedding videography, and
which might best suit your taste. You may come to find that through this collaborative
process, your videographer has lots of fresh input and ideas to offer – they may even have
their own artistic vision for your wedding film that proves inspiring.
