Would anyone recommend having a videographer? And if you didn’t have one was there any regrets on not having one? We’re just over 2 months away from our wedding and initially thought we didn’t want one, now I’m not sure if we’d regret not having it filmed! TIA x
Hi we are not having one as we can't afford one :)
Were not having a videographer, just loads of photos lol xxx
My photographer can do slow-mo videos on his camera (probably like most photographers) so he said he would do some of them for the precious moments (first kiss as man and wife) (first dance) etc etc, I think a photographer is more than enough because guests I’m sure will take videos!! Xxx
You will 100% not regret getting a videographer if you can afford one. Moving images give so much more than photos.
We are 100% having a videographer! Moving images tell a whole different story and capture the emotion in another way. It's expensive but will be so worth it! You can't do your wedding day over again, and just by spending a little more now (in the grand scheme of things) you will have a beautiful wedding video to cherish forever ❤️
Best thing we did was our videographer. Such a more special memory than photos, really captures the day. We had Ground Films and it was AMAZING (can see on my profile, think it is public!) - we also weren't 100% happy with our photos, so its an extra layer. We don't mind as much because we have a stunning video
If you can afford it, have one. If not, see if you have any friends with go pro cameras and attach them to various members of the wedding party throughout the day to capture some video.
That's my biggest regret, not having one. I really wish I could see our vows!
I read so many people when I was first planning mine saying that they wouldn't be without theirs and it was high up on the "must have" list.... I didn't book one and refuse to pay any more out so close, but like you I did start wondering. So instead of paying out silly money on top of everything else, I've asked a friend to film it, we have a gopro so he can either use that or his phone, won't cost me a penny but will have a record of the good bits. I figure for how often we will sit and watch it over the years, it'll be good enough to trigger our memories xx
We have just got our photos and vids back...got married a month ago...to watch it back is abs awesome, seeing bits we cldnt see whilst taking vows etc. It was like our day over and over again....worth the money if u can...u won't regret it. Good luck.
I’m having one and I did think about leaving it but with having two little kids I wanted something the can watch when they are older as they won’t remember it so it made me more determined to have one
Videographer for the full day and photographer with full printed album were my 2 must haves for our wedding. They were on our to do list before I even wrote down dress etc. We don't regret having either at all. Our daughter loves watching the dvd over and over too. It's been 5yrs since and she'll still watch it. It's great for showing grandparents etc too who couldn't make it. Xxx
We got married at the weekend and had the whole day filmed. I’m so excited to see it as I know we missed parts of the day. I know we won’t regret it. X
Look @ your friends that are arty & creative .... One of my girlfriends kindly did so .... Haven't seen it yet but looking forward !!
Warm wishes for your special day
I love our video. I wasn’t too bothered it’s wonderful. The day is so hectic you forget bits of the ceremony but we can watch it again any time
Absolutely hated the idea of having a videographer. h2b wanted one. I spoke to my friends and those who didn't have one regretted not getting one.
Ended up with a budget for a videographer - completely blew it and I can't wait 😂
My older sister didn't get one so my fiancé and I secretly filmed parts of the day with the intention of making a video (using iPhones to record). Afterwards, she said she wished she had one so we sent her the footage. She is still watching these weekly almost a year after the wedding https://youtu.be/88Tx-Msx5cU xxx
PS we decided to book one after seeing how much she loves the video we made her xx
My first wedding I didn’t but a family member discreetly filmed (it wasn’t very good) my husband then died and all I have is this film. So wish I videoed it and for my child to watch!
This time I have booked one! Will not make that mistake again, can watch on anniversaries. Etc then and kids can see x
Hi we decided 10 weeks before our wedding to book a videographer and it was the best decision we made. I adore our video and would be gutted to not have those memories x
We would absolutely recommend having one... the things that are in the video that I missed on the day or wasn’t there for and it made me remember the great moments... such a good memory to have. Our videographer was great too Gareth W Hughes such a great fun guy and we love our video!
I’ve been married twice and had a videographer both times. It captures your day in a whole different way. My Dad has recently passed away and it’s lovely to be able to see and hear him on a day which I know he loved.
We are having a videographer. I didn't want to regret it later down the line and it's something that will last forever. A photo captures a moment but a video brings it to life xxx
We were in exactly the same position as you with 4 months to go. We ultimately decided to have one as we wanted to capture the ceremony and speeches as we know that we won't remember those parts in full due to nerves etc.! I used Bidvine to obtain quotes and asked on UK Bride for recommendations and ended up getting an all day package with drone footage and a highlights video to share on social media for £450, although we did have quotes as cheap as £350. We just didn't want to regret not doing it afterwards and everyone says that the day goes so fast that we wanted to capture it for prosperity.
