The wedding ceremony is the moment…
You spent months and years planning this is the part where you finally marry your significant other. You will be watching the wedding ceremony film with your children’s grandchildren and enjoying every moment. These tips and advice that I can give you about the wedding ceremony to make your film amazing
Tip one – Time of year
When planning your wedding ceremony, it is handy to consider the time of year you will be getting married. For example, if you are getting married in the summer, you might want a later ceremony so things cool off a little. In summer, you’ll have more afternoon light for your videography and can even enter your reception later to take advantage of the beautiful afternoon. If you are getting married in winter, consider planning a ceremony earlier in the day to make the most of the available natural light.
Tip Two – Outdoor Wedding
If you have an outdoor wedding, it is essential to consider the weather. Guests will likely be uncomfortable if exposed to the harsh sun during the day. The sun is also very bright from 11 pm to 2 pm, making videography difficult. To avoid these problems, it is a good idea to provide water and fans for guests and to create some shade if possible. Paper parasols can be used to create shade and purchased cheaply online. By taking these simple steps, you can ensure that your guests will be comfortable and that your wedding photos will turn out beautifully.
Tip Three – Outdoors vs Indoors
When it comes to wedding ceremonies, there is no right or wrong setting. Some couples prefer the traditional indoor ceremony, while others opt for a unique outdoor location. Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal taste and beliefs. For some couples, an outdoor ceremony perfectly celebrates their union. They may feel closer to nature or prefer the scenic backdrop. Whatever the reason, an outdoor ceremony can be just as beautiful and meaningful as an indoor one. Of course, a few things to consider before making the final decision. First, ensure the weather is forecasted to cooperate on your big day! Secondly, if you choose an outdoor ceremony, please remember that lighting can be challenging. Please talk with your photographer ahead of time so they can plan accordingly.
Church or Chapel weddings offer several advantages for both couples and wedding videographers. Because they are held indoors, they are not as susceptible to bad weather. For videographers, filming inside churches and chapels is often more accessible because the lighting is more controlled. This can result in better-quality footage. From a videographer’s perspective, the only downside to church or chapel weddings is that they can be pretty tight, making it challenging to move around without being noticed. However, this is generally outweighed by the benefits of indoor weddings.
Tip Four – How long should my ceremony be?
While it is certainly possible to have a beautiful and touching wedding that lasts only a few minutes, I often wish couples would take more time to celebrate their union. After all, many of your guests have likely travelled great distances to be there on such an important day, and a more extended ceremony gives us more material to work with when editing the wedding film. I think it is well worth choosing a marriage celebrant who will create a ceremony that has substance and meaning. With a bit of planning, adding elements that will make the ceremony more personal and memorable is easy. Ultimately, I believe your wedding day is worth celebrating in a way that befits a significant milestone in your life.
Tip Five – Family Photos
Family photos are essential to any wedding but can also be a significant time sink. Suppose you don’t delegate someone to help the photographer; getting everyone organised and in place can take forever. To avoid this problem, could you list who needs to be in each photo and give it to a designated family member? This will help the photographer move things along quickly and ensure everyone is accounted for. In addition, remember that the photographer has no way of knowing who is missing from a group shot. So if you have specific people you want to be included, please let the photographer know beforehand.
Tip Six – Your walkout
Make your departure from the ceremony memorable, such as flowers, petals, confetti, or whatever you choose. This is an excellent part of the day. Just one small note that I would say when you finish your ceremony, and you walk up the aisle, don’t stop, and don’t take gratulation to people walking up the aisle; otherwise, the footage can be broken up with you stopping and starting, and It just doesn’t look as good save all your congratulations for the end.
Tip Seven – Clear and crisp Audio
Always make sure we have a PA system to record fantastic audio. You will appreciate having precise, crisp audio to watch your film back in years to clear crisp audio to watch your movie back. I can use Lavalier microphones if we don’t have a PA system, but that is sometimes only optimal, especially in noisy environments.
