When a couple begin the daunting task of Wedding Planning and decide to choose a Videographer to capture their Wedding Day. They immediately think of the Ceremony & Reception. This would be quite normal thinking as those are the most 2 parts that make up the Wedding Day. Those memories are certainly moments that need to be captured.
However, I always remind couples that the Pre-Wedding Preparations are just as important in making up your Full Day of memories.
Firstly. This time of the day is actually the only time that you are both not together. It is a time where the story of the day begins.
So many funny and emotional moments with the lead up of the day take place at this time.
Reading of letters exchanged between Bride & Groom. Exchanging of gifts which obviously has so much meaning to each of them.
The guys stumbling about trying to figure out how to do a Double Windsor knot on their tie. Or funnier still, watching a bunch of guys huddled around a phone watching Youtube to try and figure out how to do up a Bow tie. And lets not forget moments like we have experienced, such as. Guys trying to iron their shirts without thinking of plugging in the iron. Or that moment where someone appears with snacks from the local bakery. Meat Pies still in their Aluminium Trays inserted into a microwave oven only to have it explode.
Oh Yes. There are 1000s of stories I could tell. But all are a part of your Wedding Day.
Maybe that magical moment as the bride examines her gown while hanging up to be certain all looks great and ready. The first moment the Dad gets to see his precious little girl in her wedding Gown. Mum running around frantically making sure all is ready. Bridesmaid popping Champagne bottles and taking out the light above with the flying cork. The stories go on.
Let us not forget all the excitement build up as Hair Stylists & Make-up artists go to work turning all girls into Princesses. And then the big moment as all the girls start fussing over the Bride to help her into her Wedding Gown. These moments are so precious.
These are moments that will easily be forgotten. In Fact, I doubt the Bride & Groom even bring those hours up in discussion later.
Such a Special Time during the hours leading up to the Ceremony.
Do not leave this part of your day out of your Wedding Videography Booking.
Yes it may cost a little more to include in your package. But what price for Memories?.
