Now that your date is set you are no doubt going to have a lot to consider and think about. Especially with one of the biggest priorities being your wedding budget. The flowers, the dress, the venue, the food, the honeymoon, the photographer and what about the videographer?
Wedding videos are timeless.
Ask yourself just a single yet very simple question. If you were able to watch a wedding film that had captured the most emotional aspects and essences of your parents, or even grandparents wedding, the emotional and heartfelt vows, the cutting of the wedding cake, their first dance, the speeches from both friends and family, would you consider that footage to be a family treasure? Not many families or couples have the opportunity to look back at their magical first day as husband and wife in true moving colour and often have to settle with just a handful of tattered old photographs of their special day, which can become damaged or weathered over time.
A wedding video that has been professionally produced is able to effortlessly capture all your wedding memories like nothing else. A wedding video is not only able to capture the main event that you saw with your own eyes, but also the times that you may have missed, such as your friends and family arriving to the venue, your husband or wife nervously getting ready earlier on in the day, and many more precious moments that happen throughout the day. What did the bride say to her bridesmaids before she arrived at the venue? Questions such as this can all be captured timelessly with a wedding video. All the footage from the big day can be enjoyed long after the ceremony for many more years to come, which you can share with friends and family who may not have been able to attend, or also your children or even grandchildren.
Can I afford a wedding video?
This is a very common question, especially when you are juggling other fundamental aspects of your big day within a specific budget. It’s no secret that wedding videography is not always placed at the top of the budget checklist, and can even be overlooked altogether. You will always have your wedding rings, marriage license, a few photos from the day, but what else do you have to remind you of your special day? The flowers certainly won’t last twenty years and neither will the piece of cake you wanted to save. This is why wedding video’s are an extremely important factor that should never be overlooked.
When the night is over, the food is all gone, and the flowers have since passed their lifespan your wedding photos and video are the only things you will truly have left of your wedding day, and the sad reality is, more couples choose to spend more money on their food and flowers than the possibility of holding on to their memories.
This is a couple I married recently. I love it and you will see a small appearance from me.
