Wedding Video: A Must or a MaybeWhen you start planning a wedding, there are a lot of things that are just kind of a given: the dress, seating, the officiator, food for the reception, etc. Yet for many brides-to-be, a wedding video is considered nice-to-have at best and redundant along with a photographer at worst.
So do you really need a wedding video of your Perth event? We believe the answer is a resounding yes and here’s why.
A wedding video complements photos: Photos are not only beautiful but also easily displayed. Keep one in your wallet, hang one over the mantel, and send them out to family and friends after the big day. Yet while these photos can easily showcase the beauty of your wedding and the love that you and your partner share, videos capture motion with sound. In your wedding video you will get to see the nervous first few steps you take down the aisle, the tears in your parent’s eyes, and the breathless moment right before the proclamation of marriage is made, to name a few.
If you are not getting videography, you’re allowing a lot of memories to fade with time, when a wedding video could easily keep them vivid for the rest of your life.
Video allows you to relive the day. Decades from now, you and your other half will hopefully be sitting back and reminiscing on a life well spent; a life spent with one another. And while you’ll likely always be telling the story of drunk Uncle Dave, the freak rainstorm that pushed everything indoors, or the flower girl that grew up to be your favourite babysitter, the human brain has a funny way of missing the minute details that add to the depth and meaning of something like a wedding.
With a video, you’ll be able to hear your younger self make promises you only now understand, or view friends and family that have since passed on take part in one of the most momentous occasions of your life. Your wedding video in Perth can let you relive that day to a level that nothing else, short of time travel, can.
Whether the face made by your maid of honour during the best man’s speech was priceless, or the look you and your other half shared while waving goodbye on your way to your honeymoon is the perfect example of the entire day, a wedding video allows you to capture these in so many other ways than just a film.
Don’t let your hard work go to waste! For how long have you been planning your wedding, and how far off in the future is it right now? Have you already spent hours finding the perfect shade of turquoise tablecloth or a reception menu that fits you and your future spouse’s tastes perfectly? And how long, exactly, have you been dreaming of this day? Now, ask yourself this: will you really be able to enjoy all of the care you placed into the planning process and all of the love and work your family and friends provided when you’re in the midst of the whirlwind that is your wedding day?
Probably not. But with a wedding video, your event can be enjoyed thoroughly in the comfort of your own home, with your new lifetime companion by your side, so you can see, from a different view, what all that planning created.
A wedding video can be so much more than just another thing to plan for, and if you want the absolute best wedding video in Perth, Enchanted Films is the way to go.
