When it comes to the budget-conscious bride, we often hear of many couples opting to cut wedding videography from their wishlist in order to manage costs.
We promise, this is one move that will be your biggest wedding regret!
An ex RTE cameraman, Doug Murray Video Productions has been documenting weddings for over 15 years. His fly-on-the-wall shooting style, sheer passion and professionalism on the day has received stellar feedback. We caught up with Doug to get his expert opinion on why your wedding video is just as important as the photos…
Below are just some of the comments I received last year from newlyweds on receipt of their wedding DVD or USB.
- ‘Booking a videographer was the best decision we made’
- ‘Wow, thank goodness we had a video!’
- ‘Best money spent and a fantastic keepsake of our wedding’
To be perfectly honest, it really is something EVERY couple should consider. As a married man myself, I made the error of getting my sister-in-law’s boyfriend to record our special day – and after a few beers the result was a disaster!
Photographs and video are too very different mediums, it’s impossible to compare them. So, here are my top 5 reasons you won’t regret booking a Wedding Videographer.
A Second Chance To Take Everything In Properly
Your wedding day rushes by so quickly, it’s a lovely opportunity to sit down together after your honeymoon and watch it all in HD. You were probably super nervous whilst exchanging vows and making those all-important wedding speeches, so sometimes these can seem a bit of a blur. Your videographer will ensure these touching moments are captured for you to relive again and again.
An Opportunity To See Missed Moments
Video can capture so many precious moments that you never even knew happened on the day itself! Especially sections of the day where both partners aren’t present at the same time, such as the groom arriving at the church and the bride’s preparation during the morning. These portions make for great viewing after the wedding, along with snippets of your guests throughout the day.
Keepsake For Years To Come
Don’t be worried about your DVD or USB laying around gathering dust. As the years roll by, you will cherish looking back at your wonderful wedding day and seeing those who were there to share your celebrations with you. In particular, those who may have passed. Your wedding video is also guaranteed to be a novelty with your kids, who are sure to mock and giggle at mum and dad’s old-fashioned style from back in the day!
The Results Can Be Spectacular
A wedding video is extremely cost effective considering what you are paying for. You can choose the music you would like mixed in with the footage to personalize it, resulting in your very own fairytale movie.
Share It On Social Media
If you are having a smaller destination wedding or have friends and family living abroad, a video is a very special insight to your big day. By sharing on Facebook and other platforms, they will instantly feel apart of your celebrations.
