Why Wedding Videography Is Important?

Every wedding, regardless of size or type is such a tremendous experience it is impossible to take it all in on the day. Without your wedding captured on film there is no way to see or remember it all. Whilst you are involved in the busyness of the day, your wedding videographer will be working hard to record all of the moments, sights and experiences that you didn’t even see.

The best thing is that you can replay your day again and again in the future – a priceless gift that will mean more and more as the years pass. With the ever-popular trends for intimate elopements, exciting destination weddings, touching small gatherings and zoom weddings, the demand for event videography is higher than ever as today’s couples want to be able to share their special day with family and friends all over the world.

The benefits of booking a wedding videographer and photographer as one package

Some wedding videographers like me are also wedding photographers. Having a wedding videographer who is also a wedding photographer has so many benefits. Hiring a wedding videography and photography package keeps things simple, easy, more affordable and delivers a better end result. Booking a wedding videography and photography package means there is only one cost to pay, one team to deal with, one team in attendance on the day, one shooting-style and one company responsible for your gorgeous wedding photos and film – definitely the best option.

Do you regret not having a wedding video?

You will regret not having a video of family and friends in years to come. Photographs are lovely but trust me, as the years go by, you will forget how your aunty’s raucous laugh sounded, grandad’s funny voices to make you laugh will fade, your best mate’s embarrassing drunken dancing will be fade from memory but if you can see and more importantly hear people’s voices, it’s priceless and worth every penny you have to scrape together.

How much should you spend on a wedding videographer?

It really depends on your budget. Wedding Videography can cost between £1000 – £3500. As with everything in life, you get what you paid for so premium quality videos will cost more. We pour our heart and soul into our wedding films to make sure that you have the most beautiful and cinematic memories to relive your special day for the rest of your lives together.

Won't it interrupt the day

Mooncast Films - wedding videographer southend

In a word, no! In fact, quite the opposite. With a traditional photographer everything has to come to a halt to get all those tedious group shots done, which invariably take far longer than anticipated because Little Johnny needs to go to the loo or Great Aunt Mable has wandered off again. On the other hand when your big day is filmed, nothing has to stop. At Mooncast Films our wedding videographers are experts at melting into the background so that neither you nor your guests will even notice that they are there. You can just get on with the important job of having a good time!

I Think I'll feel nervous in front of a camera

One of the things we're asked most frequently is, “How should I act when I’m being filmed?” Of course the simple straightforward answer is: you shouldn’t act in any way other than to be yourself. Just relax, ignore the camera and everything will be fine – this is real life, not Hollywood! To be honest, most people are so carried away with the event and the emotion of the day they completely forget that the camera is even there!
