Your wedding day passes in an exciting blur of love and celebration. Capturing the magic in a professional video lets you relive each meaningful moment. Follow these tips from our award-winning wedding video team at Grace & Motion to create a cinematic masterpiece you’ll treasure forever.
Plan Ahead for Faster Turnaround Time
The typical turnaround time for a wedding video is 8-12 weeks. To help expedite editing, we will send you a detailed questionnaire ahead of our planning call to capture your vision, schedule, shot list, and song preferences. During our call, we’ll review your completed questionnaire together to finalise a helpful creative blueprint. Providing this vital information upfront gives our team a clear roadmap to follow on your big day, allowing us to craft your wedding video masterpiece as efficiently as possible.
Pick Songs that Capture Your Style
Work with your videographer to choose 2-3 special songs for wedding videos that totally express your style as a couple. We source our music from one of the best royalty-free vendors online – they offer full songs with vocals that sound just like your favourite chart hits! Upbeat, recognisable tunes with singers work perfectly for lively receptions, while emotional instrumentals pair nicely with ceremonies. Share your special song selections early so we can integrate them seamlessly into your wedding video.
Invest in a Talented Videographer
Select a seasoned videographer whose portfolio reflects the style you love. Cinematic storytelling requires artistic skill. Top videographers use techniques like slow motion, intentional angles, careful editing, and audio to create a professional, heartfelt film.
Allow Time for Meticulous Editing
Rushing the editing process results in a disjointed, sloppy video. Trust your videographer’s timeline for crafting a polished masterpiece. They may release a “highlight reel” preview video a few weeks after the wedding to share the joy while full editing continues.
Prioritise Key Moments
Provide must-have moments like the ceremony, first look, speeches, dances, cake cutting, send-off, etc. Your videographer will capture important rituals while creatively weaving everything into a cohesive story.
Trust Your Videographer’s Artistic Vision
A skilled wedding videographer knows how to compile the most meaningful moments into a sentimental, succinct film. Allow them creative freedom to tell your story through thoughtful editing techniques.
