Why you need wedding videography

Picture this: You have been married for 30 years and your daughter, who is about to get married herself, begins to ask questions about what your wedding was like. You could sit her down and flick through beautiful images that have been captured of your big day and explain the details to her. Or, you could put on your wedding video and let her see it for herself! This is why you need wedding videography!

Every detail from the shimmering tear trickling down your fiance’s face and the sharp intake of breath as they see you for the first time at the end of the aisle, to the musical sound of your laughter as your new spouse smooshes cake into your face. It will all be there.

Videography has long evolved from camcorder status to impressive cinematography. Professionals are dedicated to capturing every element of your wedding day to give you a way to relive one of the happiest days of your life, for the rest of your life.

One of the biggest regrets of many couples is not investing in videography, so here are some reasons why it’s a good idea to fit it into your budget.

It will be a memory booster

If you have a mind like a sieve, a movie of your wedding will help you to remember every little detail of your big day. Forgot what it was that your spouse said to you when they went rogue on the wedding vows? Just watch the video again and you will relive it like it was yesterday.

You will see little things you missed

Being the center of attention on the day means that everyone is looking at you, but you cannot possibly be looking at everyone else. A videographer can capture the emotions and the body language of your guests at pivotal moments of your ceremony and yes, even the shenanigans that your guests may get up to during the reception. You will also see things like your bridesmaids and flowergirls walking down the aisle, something you would have been hidden away for, and people tearing it up on the dancefloor while you are sitting in the corner talking to Uncle Aidan and Aunty Stacey who have flown over from Canada.

It will create a time capsule

It is never an easy subject to bring up, but life is a fragile thing and the ability to capture the voices, mannerisms and the way the ones we love celebrate in times of joy is really a wonderful gift. To have a videographer at your wedding creates a time capsule of the ones you love that you can cherish forever.

You can show anyone and everyone

Had guests who couldn’t make it to the big day? You can send them a copy of your wedding video to watch so they can relate to your descriptions of the day and feel like they didn’t miss out entirely. You can also pull it out to show your kids or grandkids long into the future. Your videographer may also be able to edit down clips that you can share on social media or offer links to extended versions that you can email out to international guests to watch on YouTube or Vimeo.

Give you time to reflect

You spend months planning the day and it all seems to fly by in what feels like minutes. A wedding video allows you to take the time to sit down once the dust has settled and really enjoy the amazing day you created and the power of the milestone you and your new spouse experienced.

You will star in your own production

A videographer does much more than capture raw footage and present you with a DVD or USB. They meticulously edit the many hours they have captured, often from multiple angles, and set the final cut to music that may have featured on your wedding day and hold so much significance for you. This creates a movie-like experience, where the story of your wedding is told from start to finish in a way that will tug at your heartstrings.
