Getting the full picture: Videographers for your wedding day

Holly Zapasnik

Capturing all of those moments that a still image simply can’t convey, videos of wedding days are an important keepsake for many couples.

Videographers are constantly adapting to suit wedding trends and styles, as we’ve explored below with videos as proof…

Harjinder and Pinta’s Traditional Sikh Wedding

Harjinder and Pinta’s Sikh wedding was captured on film by Monkeybrush Films. This snippet shows close details of a traditional wedding in a beautiful setting. Monkeybrush captured more than just the wedding, showing details of the landscape and close-ups of the preparations.

Highlight: Harjinder and Pinta having a moment to themselves as husband and wife.

Trish and James’ church wedding

Trish and James’ small church wedding was captured in beautiful detail by Anthea and Lyndon. Showing snippets of the day using both drone and close-up footage, the wedding film perfectly reflects the couple and the day.

Highlight: Views of the lush landscape and the happy newlyweds from the sky.

Dan and Anamari’s beach wedding

Dan and Anamari’s fun beach wedding was filmed by Say Hello To Forever. These guys know how to capture a quick yet accurate snapshot of your wedding day, to create a gorgeous keepsake for the couple.

Highlight: When the music is turned down and all the beautiful speeches can be heard.

Sarah and David’s park wedding

Barn Owl Films are taking filming your wedding day to a whole new level – and back a few years, as well. If they’re not using a modern DSLR camera, they’re using a vintage Super 8 camera – which gives the effect of an old-school camera.

Their filming of Sarah and David’s wedding perfectly encapsulates this approach.

Highlight: The lovely moment between Sarah and David dancing happily together.

Kristen and Kristof’s chapel wedding

Kristen and Kristof’s chapel wedding in the Hunter Valley was caught on film by Seventh Box Productions. With limited editing, the film documents each special moment of the day – tears and laughter included, of course.

Highlight: When the couple take a moment to hear from a few selected guests.

Lucy and Beau’s winter wonderland wedding

Lucy and Beau had their Canberra winter wedding filmed by Seasons Wedding Videos. This film shows just how stunning a winter wedding can be in Canberra, and includes some black and white editing to make it even more romantic.

Highlight: Having the speeches and vows played throughout the short film, with a touch of background music.
