How we Film

Surveys taken after the wedding day, show that one of the most common and biggest of a bride’s top regrets is not to have a wedding video.

 

We capture the romance of your wonderful day by creating an elegant wedding video production that is set with all the style and emotion of the wedding you have planned.

 

Your wedding video production will be a timeless documentary, meticulously and stylishly detailed for you to remember and pass onto generations to come.

 

Our goal is to be discreet and unobtrusive, capturing the moment and not the attention for your one incredible day.

We prepare before the day

When preparing the video production, we aim to give you exactly what you want. We plan and coordinate with you before the event and discuss the details you would like us to film (examples: Preparations, the bride and groom - Ceremony - Photos - Reception) and edit style that you would prefer. Should you wish, we can also film you both, some days prior to the wedding day, this can be played at your reception. We can also put a slide show together of any photos you have leading up to the wedding day (these can tell the story of how the proposal took place and where - it can even include your family and friends if you wish).

Your wedding day is edited into a movie-style highlights video of 20 minutes set to music and with selected audio from the ceremony and reception. The highlights have both moving and still images – some set in B&W for effect, sometimes in a “Sin City” style, others are slowed to capture the romance of the day and fixed with flowing transitions and fades for an emotive effect.

This is what we film

  • Preparations of both Bride & Groom, before the Ceremony 
     

  • The interior of the church or views of the venue. 
     

  • The guests as they arrive and also the boys while they are waiting with the celebrant. 
     

  • The whole ceremony from the bridal entrance to the signing of the register. 
     

  • Lapel Microphone on the groom for clear vows and a separate audio recorder to capture the proceedings. 
     

  • The Celebrant’s announcement of “Mr and Mrs" as husband and wife.
     

  • The Bride and Groom leaving the ceremony.  
     

  •  Family and guests greeting the Bride and Groom after leaving the venue 
     

  • The photoshoot location and film the casual and non-posed moments as well as the formal photos. We use creative panning to break the formal shots and make them more interesting to view on the DVD. 
     

  • The reception entrance is recorded in full with all the bridal party. Before the formal entrance, we creatively film the decorations at the venue and guests as they arrive (using the slider and dolly as well as creative close-ups). 
     

  • During the reception, we film the food as it arrives on trays and its service to the tables 
     

  • The speeches in their entirety. 
     

  • Any entertainment. 
     

  • Cutting of the cake. 
     

  • First dance and any special dances - father's dance. 
     

  • A selection of the guests dancing 
     

  • Bouquet and garter. 
     

  • Farewell formalities 
     

  • The Bride and groom leaving and walking into the night
     

  • We can also record messages, on camera: 

    - of Bride and Groom to each other prior to the ceremony: 
    - Parents: 
    - Table Guests: 
    

- Bride & Groom to record to camera a "Thank you to guests" 

Sound is a critical part of the wedding ceremony

The bride and groom need to be heard clearly, to ensure the words are clearly audible, we wire the groom with a wireless lapel microphone for the ceremony – it takes a minute or 2 to set up prior to the ceremony and the same to disconnect in a quiet moment after all the guests have been greeted, after the ceremony. The PA and audience sound is also captured, separately, by a separate audio recorder plus microphones on both cameras.

We also Record  your comments

We can also record comments from the bride and groom to each other, prior to the ceremony. Testimonials and comments can also be recorded from family and guests of your choosing.

Also as part of the wedding video production, we capture all the action that you require in the time frame we are present. Whenever you request anything, special, we are there to capture it for you.

Our goal is to be discreet and unobtrusive, capturing the moment and not the attention for your one incredible day.
