You see all these nice videos and photos and you wonder.. “how do they all look so beautiful and magical? “
Read the following tips to have the wedding video of your dreams!
Keep the space of the preparations clean and tidy
The hours spent for the bride and groom preparations is very special! You have only a few but very special people by your side, family and friends, to celebrate with you. The preparations give to the wedding video so many vivid emotions, hours before this very special day. You spend them separately, but you share the same feelings of anticipation, excitement and longing. If we must give you one useful advice that would be to have the space clean and tidy. No unnecessary items should be left around and everything should look great. Small details like a cup left in the room might be spotted in the video and they can destroy the illusion. In addition, having a room pretty and clean will allow your wedding videographer to move freely around the room.
Choosing the perfect time for the ceremony
When choosing a specific date and time for the wedding ceremony, you need to think smart. As wedding videographers, we advise our couples to have the wedding ceremony planned for one or two hours before sunset. Natural light can do magic to the wedding video and the photographs! Especially when your wedding is at an idyllic landscape, you need to have the natural elements work in your favour. Having your wedding planned for a suitable time, you have plenty of time to experiment with nearby locations and spots. We will have the privilege to capture different shades of colours of the sky, the sea and the surrounding nature. All the natural elements in the perfect light will elevate your wedding video!
Believe it or not, getting yourself in a comfortable wedding attire is the best gift you can give to yourself. Choosing clothes that are comfortable and make you feel confident and happy will have a great impact on you. Firstly, being comfortable in your clothes will be reflected on your face and mood. Moreover, you will move freely, with confidence and elegance. Feeling nice and easy will allow you to be spontaneous, carefree and enjoy your special day. Your joy, happiness and bliss will set the mood for the wedding video. As wedding videographers, we can say that when you feel comfortable, your wedding day is so much easier and enjoyable.
The perfect lighting
Another very important tip we should give you is to think about the lightning. When it comes to capturing important moments during the wedding ceremony and the reception, choosing the perfect lights is essential. You should ask for white lights when entering the venue, when cutting the cake, and for your very first dance. The right lighting will create the perfect setting to capture! As professional wedding videographers, we do have the latest equipment to accommodate any event and create the perfect conditions. However, every detail is important to get the best results. Of course, you can use any other colour of lights for the rest of the wedding party.
An extraordinary addition to the wedding video is undoubtfully the pre-wedding shooting. There is too much stress and too many things to do on your wedding day and this can get overwhelming. As a result, you could plan a pre-wedding shooting, set against a magnificent and remarkable backdrop. This is going to add a calm, carefree tone to the wedding video. The shooting gives you the chance to have a trip before the wedding just for the two of you. Taking some time off of all the preparations and enjoying each other’s company is vital. It is a moment to breath, reflect and escape. In addition, all these wonderful moments and emotions will be captured by your wedding videographer in the most creative way!
