To have a Videographer or not?!! I’m really not sure and it’s driving me crazy. The htb says no ????
Hi we are not having one because we can't afford it :)
I got a great offer, money well spent! Shop around, to find someone. It's such areas thing to keep and cherish
My future sister in law recommended it. She had one when she got married last summer and they watch it a lot. She says it's a lot easier to get out than the wedding album. We weren't sure but decided to get one and I'm looking forward to it! If you can afford it, I'd go for it!
I got one for a great deal. My friend was unsure but said she would recommend to everyone now
It is our wedding anniversary today! We shall be watching ours again tonight. I love having it. It captured things we wouldn't have seen or may have missed happening. We have some lovely messages from our guests. There will be a time when some of those guests are no longer here and we will have that! I don't regret it at all. We watch it more than we look at the photos xx
I got married in March and the biggest regret I have is not having a videographer x
I wish I had had one
We didn't want another person following people about when we had a great photographer who we knew would capture people. Instead we set up a fixed camera that we already had and asked a responsible helper to start it recording about 15min before ceremony time so we could record the vows, and same responsible person used it to record the confetti moment. My brother-in-law then took charge of it to record the speeches, 1st dance, dance with my dad. Those were the only things we cared about having on film as opposed to photos. I'm quite handy with video/photo editing though, so will put something together myself to remember those key moments along with some still photos interspersed.
I would recommend one to anyone, ours was amazing and we hardly knew he was there but our video is fab! he captured things we didn't get to see and it's so lovely to be able to watch it over and over to relive our day.
We had one as wanted to be able to watch our day over and over....we put money aside to afford one, and did without other things...for us this was more important..but obv each to their own....I can't wait to see ours as we only got married a week ago. Good luck.
I didn't, but now wish I did, it went so fast I feel I missed it x
If you can afford one then YES 100%. It brings to life your day and, as silly as it sounds, you will see both you and your guests moving and talking (basically alive and full of life) which you will appreciate in 20, 30, 40 years time. I guarantee your hubby to be grateful when he sees the result and is likely to watch the video more than look through the photos.
Hiring a videographer was the best thing we done for our wedding. He captured moments that the photographer didn’t. Also I love that I can hear us taking our vows all over again, I am hear the speeches again because I honestly didn’t remember much of the speeches on the day I was so overwhelmed by everything and everyone had filmed a little message for us which was a complete surprise and was so touching. It might be expensive but I think it’s money well spent
It was one of our definite musts when we started planning. My aunt had one at her wedding 18 years ago and it's brilliant to look back on it now. We all still have a copy, my brother who's 24 now was 6 at the time and it's lovely looking back and seeing him messing about, there's also people on it that aren't with us any more and it's lovely seeing them so happy. My dad didn't have one when he got married and it's his biggest regret
Another point... just think about your parent's wedding or even your grandparents wedding. Would you rather sit down and look at photos or would you like to watch a video of the day?
Yes i couldn’t remember saying our vows i was so nervous its lovely to look back on i only got married on 26th may this year x
We’re not having one as we think friends and family will record the important moments... also we’re paying extra for our photographer x
We are having marryoke! YouTube it....
We can't wait for our day because of it, and they also do a normal highlights video of the day to go with it!
I’ve been married twice and has a videographer twice. My photos are fab but the video is a whole different feel. As the bride it’s lovely to see everyone arriving and all the bits that you miss. And having recently lost my Dad it becomes all the more precious now that I can look back on such a happy occasion and see watch him giving his speech. It captures a moment in time.
I kinda wish I had had one despite hating how I look. The day passed in a flash and I struggle to remember so much of it clearly. Spend the money xx
Definitely have a videographer - there was so much I'd forgotten - even watching it 3 days after the event!! I love watching it back
We weren’t going to have one for our wedding in 8 weeks but I kept hearing people say they later really regretted not having one, so we decided to look around and found a really good deal back in January. Look around, get some quotes, even have look on groupon, wowcher, living social etc, they regularly do discounted wedding photography packages and some of them include photobooth, sweet or popcorn cart hire and the like x
Andy Hansen 👀 x
I wish we'd had one for our vows, I don't remember walking down the aisle and it would have been lovely to have some record of my husband's reaction
I think mine was the best investment of the day.. love watching it back.. watched that a lot more than I’ve even picked up my photo album!cant rate it enough
We are having 2 videographers, looked around and found one to suit our budget. After reading lots about what people regret when it comes to weddings one of the main things which came up was not having a videographer. It will be lovely to get back from honeymoon and watch it on top of seeing our photos. I'm sure the day will fly by and things may be missed otherwise x
We are going old school and hiring one .. and giving it to different people throughout the day to take the video
We are having one for our wedding next year. They are quite a lot of money but from seeing friends wedding video's they are definitely worth that extra cost
Yes!!! We didn't and it's the only thing I regret about our wedding.
We couldn't justify the cost on top of photography. We asked a friend with a camera to film the important bits for us and he did a fab job :)
I paid over my budget for my photography because I thought I was getting a professional to be able to capture our memories. We always wanted to be able to afford a videographer as well but we just couldn't budget for it as well as photographer...
My cousin ended up videoing and giving me that as a gift and I wish I never wasted my money on the photography! I've had so many more compliments on how well the video captures the day compared to any of our photos and I got the video as a gift!!
I'm so grateful for the video but if I wasn't lucky enough to have been offered a free video gift from my cousin then the one thing I would change (looking back) would be to ask family members to take the photos and pay for a videographer X
We set up two video cameras on tripods and asked a couple of our guests if they wouldn’t mind keeping an eye on them throughout the day. My dad edited the video together and I’m so pleased we’ve got it - like everyone else has said there are parts of the day you don’t remember, and photos don’t tell the full story ️ x
I didn't want one. But all of our friends who haven't had one regret it. And my OH wants one. We found a lovely person to do it and we're paying a lot. But I know it will be worth it and we put the deposit down yesterday
We got married yesterday and I am so glad we got the ceremony recorded, you get so flustered and time passes so quickly that you forget to stop and notice the smaller details, 100% do not regret it x
Definitely 100% do it! My partner didn't want to and I did! So I booked it anyway🤣the first thing he said on the Sunday morning was 'I can't wait to see the wedding video' and now he's so pleased we got it! Told me I actually do make great decisions!! Lol! It's so worth it😍xxx
I'd say do it. I watch the video of my wedding more than I look at my photo's, you will not regret it. If cost is an issue you can always write to or ring local colleges and see if a student would do it for you.
If you can afford one then 100% have one, you will regret it if you don't
Gareth W Hughes is doing ours in June and his videos look amazing and very competitive in terms of cost. He is happy to travel aswell. Hope that helps x
I wasn't going to but spoke to someone who said they regretted it so no I'm getting one but look around I've seen some around £650 to £2000
