If you are debating whether to invest in having your wedding filmed. I’d like you to watch this before making your mind up. Wedding films have changed so much over the years. They are now becoming more and more like timeless epic story telling pieces and just as important as the photography. Investing in a good film maker as well as a photographer creates a beautiful collection of memories. Theres no doubt about it.
Remember, your wedding day is probably the only day in your life you will have all your favourite people in one place sharing in your happiness. I think its worth investing in having that documented in the best way possible.
As the years then begin to pass, only then will you truly understand the value of how special that investment was.
You know that moment when you watch someones wedding film and rather than yawn you get goosebumps? Yeah… this is one of them! and you know when the guy that made the film happens to be really young and oozing a ridiculous amount of talent that it kind of annoys you (haha)… yeah…. Meet Ben Walton folks! He’s flipping awesome!
I’ve personally had the pleasure of working with Ben. We both shot a wedding together a few years back. I think he was half my age then (mannnn that makes me feel so old to type that!)
Anyhow, today, I want to share with you one BEAUTIFUL wedding film. Seriously, I shed a tear and think you might too. The Father of the Bride’s speech alone warrants a tissue. There is so much I love about this wedding. I’m just gutted I didn’t get to photograph it ~ Maria
Adam & Zoe’s Welsh Seaside Wedding
Adam & Zoë’s wedding was set on the coast in the seaside town of Aberystwyth. Preperations & ceremony took place in the town followed by the reception slightly set back off the coast at Nanteos Mansion. A great venue, surrounded by fields, rolling hills & sheep.
To wedding video, or not to wedding video, that is the question. A lot of time during the wedding planning process is spent prioritising what you do and don’t want so you can stick to any budgets you’ve set yourselves.
Of course we all want to have everything but that isn’t always possible. To all those brides to be who are currently deliberating whether to take the plunge and book a wedding videographer or not, maybe this will help.
Your wedding day goes so quickly that you can’t possibly remember everything. You also can’t be everywhere at the same time so inevitably you miss parts of the day. I actually got really upset after the wedding that I couldn’t remember so much of the day but was reassured by many friends and family that it was completely normal and it would all come back to me when I saw the photographs and wedding video.
I absolutely love my wedding photographs, but there are certain aspects of the day which would never have been captured had we not have had a wedding videographer. For example, the reaction of my Dad when he first saw me in my dress, the ‘pep talk’ someone gave to Rich before the ceremony when they didn’t realise he had a microphone on, but most importantly, the kind words and wishes said by loved ones during the speeches. When I watched our wedding video for the first time it brought back so many happy memories.
I love my wedding video. It captures all the excitement of the day and it’s something we can watch in years to come as a perfect reminder of all of the love and laughter.
Megan & Shaun got married on Valentines day at the fabulous Nanteos Country House in Aberystwyth and their wedding featured a HELICOPTER! Amazing. We hope you love this film as much as we do, I’m a huge advocate for having a wedding video and I think after seeing this you will probably see why!
nb. watch in full screen to get the full effect!
