Is it Worth Getting a Wedding Video?

Beach Wedding Couple

As most wedding planning goes, couples have booked the venue, hired the photographer, chosen the flowers, dress and cars and are about to write their vowels when the question of whether to get a wedding video starts to creep in .

The argument goes that “it’s too expensive” or “how often will we watch it” .

I have been filming and photographing weddings approximately ten years and the single biggest regret i hear from couples that chose to only have professional wedding photography is that they wish they had opted for a professional wedding video as well. Take it from from someone who not only films weddings but has been married.

Your wedding video is a priority.

The day of your wedding is fun and exciting. It is one of the most momentous days in your entire life,. The day is a whirlwind of excitement and it feels like it is over in a flash. By the time you settle you are heading back to your hotel room for the night, you are already wanting to relive the day and wonder at some of the things you might have missed.

Immediately after the wedding you begin to strain to remember certain parts of the day. What that funny joke your best man said in his speech or how your father teared up at seeing you in your dress.

From there it is an eager wait to see what was captured on the day, whilst the wedding video is being edited into it’s final forms.

Once that first initial trailer or highlights reel drops you will watch, rewatch and watch some more, at the same times your friends and family will feel inspired and share the short video and leave glowing comments congratulating you.

It is true that after some time that the two of you as a couple, will stop watching it. It might become something that you break every anniversary. In the mean time, time will pass by and you might even forget about it until…

You have a child that starts to ask about your wedding day. I can tell you that there was no greater satisfaction than being able to pull out my own wedding video and show my child the wedding day and the love that was expressed to each other that day as we began our union.

The wedding video therefore takes on a new life, not just as a sentimental memento of the day for you, but as a captured slice of history that can be shared with your children and their children’s children. Something they can laugh at as fashions change.

The second most important thing that occurs all too often is that a wedding video often captures more than just you but also the people who attended. Uncles, grandparents, friends who were there, happy to help celebrate the day with you in their most candid moments.

As time passes, so will certain people that were a big part of your life who just happen to be captured in some small form in your wedding video. Happy and full of life.

In conclusion, getting a wedding video is no doubt a big expense to consider in preparing for your big day. However, in the bigger picture of life, the value you receive from it now and into the future cannot be overstated.

It is a gift to future generations, the ones left behind and to yourselves. It is a gift that keeps on giving.

The Mornington Peninsula is the perfect place for Wedding Photography & Video

By Wedding Blog No Comments

We have been photographing and producing wedding cinema on the Mornington Peninsula for roughly 10 years now.

As someone who lives here it’s not hard to feel passionate about the Peninsula.

The Mornington Peninsula is the perfect place for wedding photography and cinema! It really is a lovely place to live and create.

Wedding photo’s are more than a special souvenir of your special day, they can be a document that future generations will look upon with nostalgia.

And when it comes to wedding photography and cinema, a bride and groom are looking to capture all those special moments when they are there most beautiful and happy selves with picturesque, colourful and dramatic backdrops.

That is why the Mornington Peninsula has so much to offer it is well worth considering it as the location for your brilliant day.

Whether you want to get your toes wet, you have the option for a beach wedding along many of the Mornington Peninsula’s beaches, or more rustic you can choose many venues set amongst the grape vines in the hinterland.

As the Mornington Peninsula is not too far from Melbourne you and your guests have the choice of travelling down for the day or making a weekend of the event.

The venues we have shot in and around The Peninsula, know how to throw a party with gourmet food and wine that will satisfy any food critic.

It’s not hard to see why The Mornington Peninsula is a popular destination for weddings. Apart from the stunning locations from big panoramic vista’s to intimate lakesides and sandy pathways with hanging trees are the local suppliers who go out of their way to ensure couples and their guests are going to have the time of their lives.

I may be biased, but there are very few places where you can go from the beach, to a grand pine landscape, and then to a winery all within half an hour.

And that is why i believe that The Mornington Peninsula is a perfect destination for wedding photography.
