Your wedding day is going to be best day of your life. Your loved ones are with you, everyone is having fun and looks their best, and the place looks amazing.
The only problem is, you’ll barely notice it unless you there’s a wedding video to watch later on.
Every wedding couple we know in Malaysia says that their wedding day simply flies by and becomes a blur of memories. They are usually so exhausted from the planning and running around that most of them won’t remember the details a week later.
Sure, hiring a wedding photographer is essential to make sure the important moments are captured. But, in order to REALLY bring all the moments to life with sight, sound and action, nothing beats a wedding video, created by a professional wedding videographer. This is why:
1. Wedding videos capture the action instead of freezing it
Photos are great to capture most of the special moments, but video digs deeper into the action of these moments. You can watch your first dance together to your special song, view the gatecrashing (since you would have missed it anyway, being locked up in the bedroom), or relive the great performances by your friends and relatives. Photos can’t put you back into the action of these moments like the magic of video.
2. Wedding videos convey the emotion
Video captures emotions. Sure, in a photo you can see a tear sitting on a cheek or a radiant smile during vows, but video allows you to open the window to these moments and feel the emotion again.
3. Wedding videos are a compact way to relive the moments
Step back into each moment watching your wedding video. Video captures the essence of the speeches and the toasts along with each special moment. Your mind is catapulted into the warm blanket of your sister’s sweet toast or the hilarious antics of your crazy uncle dancing to a funny song. A video is easy and fun for all to watch so family and friends can always be a part of your big day even if they weren’t there.
4. Wedding videos let you get cinematic
All the attention is on you on your wedding. So give them a cinematic experience to remember. Videos let you be the star of your own romantic movie trailer; one that you can show your grandkids one day.
5. Wedding videos are a beautiful keepsake for years later
Time flies. One day, as you look back at your wedding video, you won’t believe how much has changed! A wedding video captures a moment in time when everyone is looking their best and in one place for a special couple. Some brides said that the wedding video was sometimes the only record of a parent who has since passed away, so they could remember how they sounded and felt on that great day.
And, instead of sharing 200 wedding photos with friends and family, why not just send them your awesome 3 minute highlight video?
Taking a wedding video is an added expense, but it’s worth it
Very few couples regret their decision when they are re-watching it years later. Have you chosen your videographer yet?
