The wedding ceremony is the moment…

You spent months and years planning this is the part where you finally marry your significant other. The wedding ceremony film you are going to be watching back 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 take into consideration the time of year you will be getting married. For example, if you are getting married in summer, you might want to think about having a later ceremony so that things cool off a little. Being summer, you’ll have more afternoon light for your videography and can even enter your reception a little later to take advantage of the beautiful afternoon. If you are getting married in winter, on the other hand, you might want to plan a ceremony earlier in the day to make the most of the available natural light.

Tip Two – Outdoor wedding

If you are having an outdoor wedding, it is important to take the weather into consideration. Guests will likely be uncomfortable if they are exposed to the harsh sun during the day. The sun is also very bright from 11pm to 2pm, which can make 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 can be purchased very 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 more unique outdoor location. Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal taste and beliefs. For some couples, an outdoor ceremony is a perfect way to celebrate their union. They may feel closer to nature, or they may simply prefer the scenic backdrop. Whatever the reason, an outdoor ceremony can be just as beautiful and meaningful as an indoor one. Of course, there are a few things to consider before making the final decision. First, make sure that the weather is forecasted to cooperate on your big day! Secondly, if you do choose an outdoor ceremony, keep in mind that lighting can be a challenge. Be sure to discuss your options with your photographer ahead of time so that 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 easier because the lighting is more controlled. This can result in better-quality footage. The only downside to church or chapel weddings from a videographer’s perspective is that they can be quite tight, making it difficult 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 ceremony that lasts only a few minutes, I often find myself wishing that couples would take a bit 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 longer ceremony gives us more material to work with when editing the wedding film. In my opinion, it is well worth taking the time to choose a marriage celebrant who will create a ceremony that has substance and meaning. With a bit of planning, it is easy to add elements that will make the ceremony more personal and memorable. Ultimately, I believe that your wedding day is worth celebrating in a way that befits such a significant milestone in your life

Tip Five – Family Photos

Family photos are an important part of any wedding, but they can also be a major time sink. If you don’t delegate someone to help the photographer, it can take forever to get everyone organized and into place. To avoid this problem, make a list of 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 that 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, make sure to let the photographer know in advance.

Tip Six – Your walk out

Make your departure from the ceremony memorable this can be flowers petals, confetti whatever you choose this is a fantastic part of the day and just one small note that I would say when you finish your ceremony and you walk up the aisle don’t stop don’t take a gratulation’s to people just walk 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 PA system to record fantastic audio. You will appreciate in years to come having clear crisp audio to watch your film back. I can use lavalier microphones if we don’t have a PA system but that is sometimes not always optimal especially if you are in noisy environments.
