You know when you buy something and think - "hey - I'll probably never use it but you never know!". Well I've had a teleprompter for ages, never thought it was going to get used but low and behold - twice in one week!

Blow me down with a feather!

Reminds me of a wedding I filmed in Hockley Heath several years ago. It took me 3 hours to get there in my 4x4 but I'd allowed plenty of time to get there and not let the couple down.

They had to send a Land Rover out to get the registra but it all went well but it was blooming cold!

Why have your wedding filmed professionaly?

In this day and age it’s easy to film moments in time on a smart phone. Capturing vows or that first kiss. But smart phones have their limitations of course. How much footage can you really film on an iPad even?

My clients often tell me of friends of theirs who have had a free or cheap film produced and are dissatisfied with the outcome. They don’t want a roughly shot wedding. They want a well composed accurate yet emotionally moving record of their day. Well filmed and edited footage engages memories. Brings back to life loved ones on screen. Shows children enjoying that fairytale day they’ve longed to be a part of.

Impartial professionals will cover both sides of the wedding families where as guests will tend to only film people they know.

Professionals will be shooting with modern cameras that are versatile and have a range of different settings or looks built into the camera.

And don't forget sound. Great sound is so important to certain parts of a wedding video. Built in shot gun directional condenser microphones won't be found on any smartphone or even DSLR cameras. Radio microphones can either be clipped to a groom or strategically placed in a room to pick up audio are imperative to gathering vows or speeches.

Also modern cameras have a thing called audio limiters built in which stop very loud audio from distorting and ruining a recording. This is extremely important for filming say a first dance or live band.

So why have a professional person film and edit your wedding?...I think it's obvious. If you want the best recording and be able to rely on someone producing a quality video for you go with a professional. Don't risk having any regrets - it's your wedding day after all.
