Lifestyle By Elena Boaghi | September 21, 2016
During your wedding preparations, you have a lot of things to do and tasks to tend to. In all honesty, it can get a little stressful and overwhelming, but make sure not to forget to include a professional photographer and videographer who will capture the most iconic moments of this amazing day for you. Open conversation with people who will provide these everlasting memories for you is necessary, so that you can inform them of the essential video shots that you want to have in your wedding ‘memory box’.
Bride and groom getting ready
Moments before the ceremony are full of anticipation and they can be very funny and entertaining to watch later on, especially with bride and groom having to get ready in separate rooms, surrounded with their closest friends. This shot will provide you with a unique insight into both your extreme happiness and nervousness.
The venue shot
Make sure to ask for a good and detailed ceremony and reception venue video shot before there are any guests around, so that you can actually get a closer look at what kind of impact the venue, with all the thematic décor, had on everyone. Capturing both exterior and interior would definitely make your memorable wedding videography even more complete.
People walking in
Every personstepping into the wedding hall should be saved on a tape because you’ll be able to see the faces of the people you love and feel their emotions as they join the party. Of course, everyone should have their own place in the video – guests, families, bridesmaids, flower girls, ring bearer, etc.
The moment everyone’s been waiting for
Of course, filming the whole process of the wedding is a must. From the groom waiting for the bride to the bride walking down the aisle to wedding vows and first kiss– all of these moments are what make some great memories later in life. The moment the groom sees the bride in her wedding dress for the first time is priceless.
Full shot of the wedding dress
Don’t forget to make some time to get a full shot of you in your wedding dress. Nowadays, most brides rent the dress so this will be a great way to savor that day when you felt like a princess in a ball gown.
Surrounded with your favorite people
Undoubtedly, you will have a lot of formal shots with everyone who turned up for your wedding day, but make sure to tell the videographer to pay special attention to moments when you’re surrounded with bridesmaids and groomsmen as well as your families because these will make for some of the most touching moments.
The arrival of the cake
The arrival of an impressive wedding cake is also something worth capturing, especially since it’s going to be eaten soon. Of course, the cutting of the cake and feeding each other thefirst bite is one of the most romantic moments at the wedding and you would want to have that memory forever.
The opening dance of the bride and groom, the bride’s dance with her father, the groom’s dance with his mother, toasts, bouquet tossing and even the moment when the bride and groom leave are all parts of wedding traditions that should be remembered and enjoyed many times after the wedding day.
Photos and videos of your wedding day are full of positive energy and happiness, so make sure to arrange this service in time and have such important moments treasured forever.
