6 reasons that a wedding video is more important than ever

A couple of weeks ago we filmed our first wedding video since 2019 at Bridge House Barn and we couldn’t have been more thrilled to get filming and editing weddings again! It was a little strange with social distancing measures in place but we were really happy to be part of such a special day. Plus it also made us think about why a booking a wedding videographer is so critical during the pandemic.

Our 6 reasons to hire a wedding videographer during COVID-19

1. For the wedding guests who cannot be there

A wedding video will ensure that your VIP guests who cannot attend due to COVID-19 can still see the most important part of your wedding day, the ceremony and your wedding vows to each other. Its the part that none of your guests will want to miss.

2. Get a custom made wedding video package bespoke to you

If you only want a ceremony filmed or you want us there all day, we can create a custom wedding video package just for you, especially during these strange COVID-19 times. Just tell us what you want, what you really really want!

3. Photographs are great, but…

We absolutely love a good set of wedding photographs and they are great to print and put on the wall to look back on, but when we booked our own wedding videographer we knew we wanted to look back on the whole story of the day and all the emotions that come with it. A great wedding video will always bring that out.

4. Postponed and now having a winter wedding?

We love a winter wedding! Your original plans and date may have changed (ours certainly have, we were meant to be married in June 2020!) but if you’re now getting married towards the end of 2020 or even 2021, winter weddings have a cosiness about them and end of year Christmas feel that looks epic in film.

5. COVID-19 postponement means you might be able to stretch your wedding budget

If you’ve had another year to save due to postponing your wedding, you might be able to now stretch your wedding budget that little bit further and invest in a few more things next year you couldn’t consider for this year. A wedding video should be top of your list!

6. Don’t have any regrets!

The number one thing we hear from friends who got married was that they wished they had booked a wedding videographer. We get it – I am an introvert I wasn’t sure I wanted a videographer either! But Lisa wanted to look back on our whole wedding day story and, I had to admit that she is right!

We pride ourselves in being unobtrusive and with COVID-19 restrictions in place we can easily keep a 2m distance away and still capture all the magic of the best day of your lives. 

Our Micro Wedding Video Packages start from £250 for a midweek wedding so email us and have a chat with us about your plans, and see if we’re available on your big day.

Fisherbrand rockers and shakers

Over the past few weeks I’ve been working on creating short form video content for the Fisherbrand rockers and shakers range. Really pleased with how the six videos turned out and they look great embedded into the Fisher Scientific channel’s product pages.

Athens Sales Conference

In January I went to Athens to film and edit a video of Fisher Scientific’s annual European Sales Conference. It was the first time I’ve been asked to cover the event, which officially lasted 3 days, and I had the best working week of my career yet! And got some great feedback. Very much looking forward to going to the next one.

 

Science World 2016 in Berlin

On the 1st of June I filmed the latest Science World event for Fisher Scientific at the Berlin Congress Centre in Germany. Please click here to watch the video, which features famous Luxembourgian physicist Ranga Yogeshwar.

GAL – Cause and Effect

On Friday the 17th of June, the GAL (Guerrilla Art Lab) collective, a group of Nottingham based artists, performed a special commission led by Sam Metz at the National Centre for Craft and Design. The commission was part of the Cause and Effect exhibition which is on at the gallery until September the 18th 2016.

I was more than happy to document this event on behalf of a wonderfully creative and supportive group.

Fisherbrand safety products

A few weeks ago I was asked to produce a series of photographs of a new range of Fisherbrand safety products including hair, shoe and beard covers. We had a lot of fun in the studio that day and really pleased with the clean look. Thanks to Dave and Tracy for their willing participation!

Thermo Scientific muffle furnaces video

I recently filmed and edited a short product demo on Thermo Scientific’s Thermolyne muffle furnaces range using my shiny new Canon 6D. Really happy with the quality of the imagery and what I can now produce compared to the the Canon 60D I was previously using.
