Do we need a wedding video? This is one of the top questions often asked many of the wedding planning professionals we panelled. Whether or not to hire one can be overwhelming considering the cost, we get it. Trust us, it’s an investment worth making that you won’t regret. If you’re still on the fence here five reasons why you should secure a wedding video for your big day!
1. Relive the memories over and over!
Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event. Having a cinematic wedding film produced allows you to be able to relive that moment over and over again throughout your lifetime. Memories fade over time, so it truly is beneficial to have a wedding video production team capture every moment from the big day. Your wedding is one movie you’ll never get tired of re-watching!
2. Share your moment with those who weren’t able to join the celebration.
Due to various circumstances, not everyone will be able to attend your big day. So, having a cinematic wedding video allows your loved ones who couldn’t make it feel like they were there. A video of the celebration provides more emotion than just still photos. Not only can a professional video production company produce a variety of edited content that is easily shared across social media, but the right company should be able to offer a live stream during the ceremony, or even, day-of video editing so you might be able to post right away.
3. Atmosphere can’t be photographed.
Music, toasts, and vows are some of the most emotional parts of the day. Those are priceless things that cannot be captured through photographs. Having a cinematic wedding film produced will allow you to experience the full impact of emotion that was present. A great example of this is during the ceremony. When coordinated right, a professional team of videographers will position themselves to capture the groom’s expression when he first sees the bride and vice-versa. It’s about the energy, emotion and moment when setting up & executing a wedding film. Honestly, those moments are too rare and too sweet to be left undocumented.
4. You’ll be able to see moments that you might have missed.
There’s no secret that you will not be able to be in all places at all times. With such a busy day and schedule, there’s so many things you won’t be able to witness. Having a video will allow you to see things from various perspectives besides your own. The beauty of having a videographer means you won’t miss a thing! It’s like having several sets of eyes!
5. You walk away with a family heirloom that you can pass down from generation to generation.
The memories captured from your wedding are invaluable. Imagine showing your wedding film to your children or grandchildren, or even, your great-grandchildren. The future of your family might not be completely set yet, but having a traditionally filmed wedding is much more personal than just having wedding photos to look at. It becomes a shared memory that can live on indefinitely.
