Guide to the Perfect Wedding, Birmingham Event Space Manager Offers Insight to Videography: 3,2,1….OR Lights, Camera, Action!!!

Since most couples hire a photographer to photograph their wedding, many couples think videography isn’t necessary. However, we are huge advocates of capturing your big day on video. It can be a truly wonderful keepsake that can bring you right back to the time and place of one of the most fabulous days of your life.

The sight, the sounds, those facial expressions and spontaneous moments that your photographer might have missed are captured on your wedding video1 Plus, it’s hard for you to process and appreciate all the details from your wedding day because you will be so filled with emotions and the day is so busy. What would be better than listening to your vows once again on an upcoming anniversary? If you can work videography into your budget, we suggest you do it.

If you’re worried about a videographer getting in the way, keep in mind that some companies use small cameras that can record your entire wedding without seeming obtrusive. To get your money’s worth, pay attention to the quality of the vendor’s work. View samples!!! Does their filming and editing style match your personalities? Also, talk to your videographer about special effects such as slow motion, fades, or adding text or still photos. When done well, these editing tricks can take your wedding video up several notches and make it that much more special. Here are some other ways of using video:

*Video Montage: These types of videos are typically played during the reception. A video montage could be s series of fun clips showing the bride running around the city prepping for the big day—shopping for gowns, at the cake tasting, meeting with a mixologist to create a signature cocktail. Or it could be focused on how the bride and groom met and fell in love. Set the montage to music, be creative—and make it personal!!! What not to do: Play a twenty-minute (or seemingly never-ending) slide show of photos that requires your quests to stand the entire time. For everyone’s sake, please keep your montage five minutes long or shorter. If you’re using clips to tell your wedding story, use this timeline as a guide:
0:00-1:00 minute- Bride growing up
1:00-2:00 minutes- Groom growing up
2:00-4:00 minutes- Photos of you both as a couple, leading up to your wedding.

*Instant edit: Some videographers can “instantly” put together a video clip—perhaps three to four minutes long—featuring the most memorable highlights of your wedding day. These short clips can then be copied onto DVDs and packaged on the spot to be given away as party favors or uploaded to Facebook or to your wedding web site. Your guests will be amazed at how quickly they’ll be able to relive and share special moments from your wedding.

*Thank-you gifts: Giving your closet family members and friends a copy of your video after the wedding is another wonderful idea. An alternative is to send everyone your wedding video around your first anniversary, that way, it can serve as a nice reminder of all the fun that was had at your wedding.
