3 reasons why a wedding video can make your Jewish wedding even more special
Why booking a wedding videographer is more important than ever
When people first plan their wedding, they are often in two minds about whether to book a wedding videographer or not. Do we really need a wedding video? Will the videographer spoil our day by getting in the way? Will we ever look at the wedding video?
While these are all valid concerns in our experience, they are many more reasons to have a wedding video than not. We take a look at three reasons why a cinematic wedding video can make your big day even more special.
Capture those moments you would otherwise miss
You’ll often hear newly wed couples complain that their wedding was all a bit of blur and this can be especially true of Jewish weddings which are so full of tradition and ceremony. As the bride or groom, you’ll be the heart of everything from the Bedeken to the celebratory Hora, so it can be hard to remember everything that happened on your special day.
That’s why a wedding video is the perfect way of ensuring you don’t miss a moment. Capturing everything from the bride and groom getting ready to the wonderful, heartfelt speeches, and those once in a lifetime reactions of your guests that you may have missed, a video will help ensure you can relive everything time and time again.
And it will also give you a sneaky peak into the parts of the day which you weren’t present at. Ever wondered what happens at a groom’s Tisch? With a wedding video, you won’t have to wonder anymore!
Provide you with lasting memories of your nearest and dearest
Weddings are one of the rare times when family and friends are all in the same place at the same time, so what could be better than capturing that for posterity.
A wedding video means that in years to come, you’ll be able to look back and see how people have changed, have an important keepsake of elderly relatives and be able to share the memories with generations to come.
And don’t worry if you or any of your guests are a little bit camera-shy. At Mark Shipperley Films, our goal is to be as unobtrusive as possible, so we can capture all the laughter and tears as they naturally unfold. Just take a look at this wonderful video we captured for Sara & Max wedding.
Share your day with people unable to attend in person
More than ever this year, we’ve been faced with the problem of people not being able to attend weddings, but even in ‘normal times’, this can be an issue. Maybe, people are unable to travel long distances or maybe the wedding day clashes with another important event – whatever the reason, it’s always sad when people can’t make it. And while a wedding video is no substitute for them being there, it does allow you to share all your special wedding moments with them.
As experienced Jewish wedding videographers, we will always edit your wedding video in chronological order, so from the groom’s Tisch through to the traditional benching after the wedding meal, they will be able to watch all the magic of your day as it unfolds in the order it occurred.
