Tips for live streaming our wedding

What's the best way to go about live streaming our wedding? How does it work? Would the videographer do it or do we need to organise an app or something?

Motion Of Video

A videographer is definitely needed if you want decent audio and zooming capabilities. 

A lapel mic on the groom or audio feed out of the microphone is essential.  This audio needs to be monitored and adjusted with either the camera preamps or a sound mixer, to avoid peaking or soft audio.
A zoom lens is also important. Wide for moments where there are multiple personal on screen and close for those emotional moments between the bride and groom.
A phone might not have enough zoom capabilities (or will pixelate), which would be frustrating for the viewers.
The main reason to get a videographer in my opinion is the audio. So your viewers of the stream can clearly hear those all important vows, songs and laughs. If it isn’t done properly it becomes fairly unwatchable after patience has been worn.

My company Motion Of Video - - did live streaming for one of the leading dance studioes in Melbourne (Dance Dynamics) during COVID last year.

Hope that helps!


How long should it typically take for a videographer to return the final product?

My sister got married two years ago, and it took almost 6 months for her videographer to return the video of her wedding. I want a videographer at my wedding, but I'm scared it'll take the same amount of time to come back. Is 6 months normal to wait for your wedding video?

Motion Of Video

Hi Louisa,
6 months is much too long. The maximum length you should EVER expect to wait is 2 months (and that's pretty poor service). A good wedding videography company will have your videos finished and sent in 3-6 weeks max. The later being reserves for ambitious weddings videos with a complex idea, ergo a lot of drafts and re-edits are needed.
Hope that clears it up.
