Planning for your wedding day, things like the venue, the rings, the food, a cake, flowers, a dj or a band, and a photographer are almost a guarantee. Vows will be written. A minster will be selected, and the countdown will begin.
The funny thing is after all of the cake has been eaten, the music has faded and the flower petals have been swept away, the only things that will remain are the rings and the photographs.
My wife is an amazing photographer, so I’m big on having wedding memories preserved with great images. But sadly, after all of the months of planning, the day will go by in the blink of an eye. The couple will jet off to some exotic location for a week or so, and then things will return to normal. All of the excitement a slowly fading memory. Photographs will provide a reminder of moments in time, but what was happening in those moments? What was the context?
That’s where one of the most overlooked pieces of the wedding puzzle comes in. Video. A wedding film can capture the words of love spoken between a couple. It can capture those flashes of serendipity. It can allow a couple to actually re-live this magical day.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve spoken to people who’ve said “the one thing I wish we had done was a video.”
Now, I’m not talking about the kind of video that comes to mind when you first hear the words “wedding video.” I’m talking about a personalized, cinematic retelling of one of the most special days in your life. The kind of film that captures the style and feel of the day and allows you to relive it again and again.
Trust me, you won’t be sorry.
