Finding the right suppliers to help make the most important day of your life as perfect as possible can be challenging and with so much to remember people often forget about the option to have a professionally made wedding film.
In this blog will discuss five reasons why you should hire a professional wedding videographer for your big day:
1 - You get to see all the bits you missed
The number of brides I’ve heard say towards the end of the day “I can’t believe how quickly it’s all gone, it’s all been a blur” certainly reaches into double if not triple figures. Whilst the day of your actual wedding will be incredible in so many ways, so much happens, you see and speak to so many people that it’s easy to forget or miss bits.
If you have a wedding film, you will have one or two videographers covering everything from you and the groom getting ready through to guests arriving at the church, the groom waiting in nervous anticipation, that all-important first kiss as a married couple - all the way through to the speeches and first dance.
2 - You get a compelling story to keep
If you hire a real professional, they will be able to deliver anything from cinematic wedding trailer, through to extended highlights or even a full length documentary style wedding film. Because they do this day in day out they know how to both shoot and edit to give you something truly memorable.
3 - It captures all of the emotion
Photographs are great and there are some really talented wedding photographers out there but whilst our lovely photographer friends capture snapshots, a wedding videographer will be able to capture and enhance all of the emotion of the day.
4 - Not booking a videographer will be your biggest regret (according to our friends at The Knot)
I recently edited a wedding film for someone whose relative had tried to record the ceremony on a camcorder and I put together this and smart phone footage mixed with her professional photos. While she was really happy with the end result, when she booked me she said “I wish we’d just booked a videographer in the first place”
5 - Family memories
Let’s face it, we all wish that all of our relatives and friends could be around forever and stay in our lives, though we all know life will eventually take its course. It’s so lovely to be able to look back at your wedding, through your love one’s eyes and see everyone happy, smiling and enjoying themselves.
There you have it; five top-notch reasons to hire a professional wedding videographer.
