Here at Drangan Video in Tipperary we offer many options and extras for your wedding video, in this blog post we take a closer look at those options, here is some advice on what to include with your wedding video package.
A Photomontage Or Not ?
Don’t get me wrong it’s always nice to look at baby pictures and honeymoon snapshots. Do you really need them at the beginning of your wedding film.
My advice is to get straight into the wedding video story . If you’re hiring a videographer to cover your full day, you’ll have plenty of footage to produce a skillfully edited video that your friends and family will enjoy watching over again and again.
Full Wedding In HD: On USB Stick
The majority of wedding videos are still delivered on DVDs. most videographers including myself are now offering wedding videos in HD on thumb drives as an optional extra. In this new age of On Demand films many couples do not have a DVD player. A usb drive allows you to view your wedding video in full HD quality on your TV mostTVs now come with built-in USB ports.
Always Include: The Ceremony
I like to include footage of the full wedding ceremony especially the important words the tears or laughs that were all part of the ceremony.
If you’re getting married in a church just make sure they allow filming inside, my advice is don’t cut the ceremony coverage. Also allow plenty time for your videographer to capture the guests arriving before the ceremony.
Include The Drinks Reception
All of your family and friends are thrilled to be with you and are enjoying the party atmosphere but alas you are too busy and not available to join them for the moment.
As your wedding videographer I will capture many of those little moments that you are missing out on. For instance, if you’re busy taking photos during the drinks reception, you might miss your guests trying out the photo booth props. Just bear in mind the day will go by in a flash and you’ll miss out on all those little moments that helped to make your big day so special.
Include: Short Edit Highlights
This is what you will want to show to your family and friends who won’t want to sit through the entire wedding ceremony, speeches and dancing.
That’s why short edit highlight clips a 4min – 5min movie that includes just the highlights of the day are becoming so popular in wedding video productions they are more entertaining for viewers. It’s also a great way to share the day’s top moments with friends in other parts of the world who couldn’t be there on the day
Most couple still want the longer version , here at Drangan Video we also supply a 1-2 hour wedding film which will include every detail from your day.
This is the highlights from the wedding of Laura and Denis who were recently married in Ballingarry Co. Tipperary followed by a wonderful reception in Langton House Hotel Kilkenny.
Dump: Unedited Footage
If you would like to hold on to the unedited camera footage, your videographer may include with your package. If it’s not included in your package, it’s not worth paying the extra money, more than likely you will never look it
Here at Drangan Viodeo we provide a short highlight video and a long 1-2 video of the full day
A Second Camera ?
Two cameras are better than one. The ability to cut back and forth between both camera’s makes for a more entertaining wedding video.
Hiring two camera shooters is costly, here at Drangan Video you get one camera shooter Eamon who uses two cameras during the ceremony and speeches.
If your budget will not cover hiring a second cameraman, consider making room for two cameras — one manned and moving around and the other stationary. This will enable your videographer to get a wide shot of the ceremony and close-ups of the action, and incorporate both into the video.
If you are considering hiring a professional wedding videographer why not get in contact with myself Eamon here at drangan video who will be happy to offer advice on our range of affordable HD wedding video packages.
