Video and Photography
Hints & Tips
Memories of your wedding will last for years to come, and your photographs will help to keep these memories alive. Especially if you are getting married abroad and not all of your family members can attend.
After choosing your venue it would be advisable to start looking around for a photographer as good photographers tend to get booked up quickly. There are many things to consider when choosing your photographer, the ability of the photographer, their portfolio and style, presentation and personality and overall the cost. Often your overseas venue may allocate you with a photographer or videographer, or you can choose to do this yourself. By capturing memories and the scenery on film you will be able to show your loved ones just how amazing your destination really was.
An increasingly popular style of wedding photography is reportage style or the 'story book' approach. This involves your photographer taking photos from the initial getting ready stages through to the evening reception with pictures of the bride getting ready through to the first dance. There is still the more traditional posed photograph style of groups of the bridal party and most couples now tend to go for a mixture of both.
A video is a great way to capture all the details of your wedding day, the chance to watch your wedding day after the event itself means that this is becoming a popular option. From the speeches to your arrival at the church the video will enable you to relive these moments again and any moments that you missed when you were meeting and greeting all your guests. This cost will need to be determined in your budget as they can be quite expensive; however a cheaper viable option is asking a friend or relative to do this for you.
If you are holding a party when you get back to the UK all of your videos and images will be able to be used on large screens or on story boards to bring the wedding venue to your friends and families.
