Harper’s Top Ten Reasons to Hire a Wedding Videographer

1. A life-like memory of your wedding

Your wedding day will probably go by in a flash – but having a wedding videographer capture your celebration from before your ceremony to your evening reception will remind you of your best day ever for many years to come.

2. See things you wouldn’t have seen otherwise

You can’t possibly see how your guests will react to certain parts of your day – but on film, you’ll be able to look back at everyone and see things that you may not have seen if you didn’t hire a wedding videographer.

3. Capture friends and family in that stage of life

Whether you’re inviting grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, small children, teenagers or babies to your wedding, it will amazing to look back at your wedding video in years to come, to see how people have changed from then to now. Having that lifetime memory of grandparents, for example, could be priceless.

4. Your wedding videographer can get creative

A wedding video these days isn’t quite the same as you may have seen in the 80s. Today’s Wedding Videographers are experts when it comes to using top of the range equipment, music and digital creativity to turn your wedding video in to a memory that you’ll want to watch over and over again in the future.

5. Share your wedding video on social media

Aside from watching your wedding video on repeat at home – your wedding videographer might be able to create a shorter version for you to share with your friends on social media.

6. A wedding videographer may not be as costly as you think

If you didn’t add ‘wedding videographer’ to your wedding budget in the first place because you think it might cost a lot, then be sure to re-consider your options. Shop around, contact wedding videographers to find out what you can get for your money and be sure to compare prices depending on how long you would like them to stay during the day/night. You may find yourselves pleasantly surprised.

Top Tip:

If you’re really keen to have a wedding videographer but it is coming out way over your budget, could you compromise on other parts of your day by say reducing your budget for wedding flowers, wedding favours or the cake?

7. A keepsake for your future children

If you plan on having children in the near future, of if you have them before you get married, having a recorded memory of your wedding day will be something for them to treasure and watch back in years to come.

8. Re-live your perfect day again…and again…and again…

When your wedding is over, we’re pretty sure that you’ll wish that you could re-live that day over and over again. With a wedding video, all those incredible emotions and memories will come flooding back.

9. Capturing the real emotion

There are numerous parts of a wedding day when emotions can run high; from the father of the bride seeing his daughter all dressed up, to walking down the aisle and more than likely, the speeches during the evening banquet. Having these emotions captured on film will be forever sentimental to look back on.

10. No regrets

You won’t want to get to the day after your wedding and then realise that you wish you would have hired a wedding videographer! It’s always best to exhaust options during your planning if it is something that you are considering.
