By avoiding the key mistakes we have outlined – lack of communication and professional expertise – a wedding event will be immortalised for all the right reasons.

Having extensive experience in filming luxury weddings at a variety of locations across the UK and worldwide, Bloomsbury Films offer expectant brides and grooms crucial advice to ensure one of the most important days of their lives is beautifully immortalised on video.

These are the Top Two mistakes couples often make when arranging their wedding videography, resulting in the record of their Big Day turning into a major disappointment:

Neglecting Communication

While it’s understandable that couples will be occupied by a million-and-one little details when their special day is just around the corner, the worst videography mistake warns Bloomsbury is not taking the time to clearly communicate their expectations and instructions to the crew or person who will be doing the filming.

A wedding is a one-time event which cannot be repeated, so couples have only one chance to get it right. To ensure success, good communication is an absolute must. While an experienced videographer is worth their weight in gold because they will know the essential factors that can make or break a wedding video, there are a number of things relating to personal taste which they cannot be expected to know. For this reason, couples should ideally make a list of individual requirements and outline their vision for the video.

It is also vital to inform the videographer how long the wedding and reception will last, so they can be sure to have more than enough film to hand. The general rule of thumb for professionals is that they will have enough tape to cover twice the length of expected time, since extra footage will allow for editing experts to work their magic.

Bloomsbury Films also advise that couples find out about no-film zones so they don’t suffer disappointing surprises - locations such as churches, synagogues, mosques and chapels may have specific areas where no filming is permitted.

Lack of Technical Expertise from Non-Professionals

The reason why it is well worth every penny to choose a professional and experienced videography provider explains Bloomsbury is that they will have the technical expertise when filming to get the job done right – as beautiful as a wedding event may be in reality, bringing this out on film depends on expert camera work.

Professionals tend to use dual cameras to capture multiple perspectives simultaneously and thereby better tell the story. For example, they will film the bride walking down the aisle and at the same time capture the groom’s reaction. Professionals also use HD (high definition) cameras, as these have the pixel volume to ensure the footage is crystal clear and of the highest quality.

Director of Bloomsbury Films, Andrew Cussens, concluded: “One of the most special days of a couple’s lives deserves to have its magic and significance captured perfectly. By avoiding the key mistakes we have outlined – lack of communication and professional expertise – a wedding event will be immortalised for all the right reasons.”
