There are a couple of important events in your life which deserve to be captured on film forever, with your wedding undoubtedly one of the most important ones.

But what can you do to make sure your wedding video captures the true beauty, love and emotion of your special day?
Your wedding day can feel like a blur, with nerves and excitement making the day pass in a flash. That’s why it’s important that your video can crystallise the parts of the day you may have missed forever.

The tips below will help ensure your wedding video goes smoothly:

5 Top Tips for Planning a Wedding Video

Research Suppliers

Finding the right wedding videographer is, of course, the most important step to ensuring the perfect video for your big day. If you are working with a wedding planner ask for their recommendations, but if you are planning the wedding yourself there’s still a huge range of suppliers to be found online to suit different budgets. You may also want to contact the venue to see if they have any recommended suppliers.

Happy weekend, my lovelies! I’m busy teaching a modern calligraphy workshop at the fabulous Little Paper Shop in Nantwich, Cheshire today (head over to my insta @bymoonandtide for behind the scenes pics!) but of course I saved up something wonderful to share on English Wedding while I’m there! Senel from Bride and Belle and lovely Eva Tarnok used the history of Chiswick House as a basis of the inspiration for this wonderfully feminine and romantic, classic bridal editorial.

The images tell the love story of Elisabeth, an English lady, and her Italian suitor. Using a colour palette of soft pinks and neutral tones paired with gold details reflects the romantic and classical feel of this shoot, combined with a Fine Art aesthetic. The graceful, romantic and feminine images celebrate the historical nature of the building, which is transformed into a stunning wedding venue with lots of beautifully styled details.

A fabulous tipi celebration in the height of summer. A gorgeous, relaxed and head-over-heels in love couple. Rustic styling, tons of florals, vibrant colours and a party atmosphere. It really doesn’t get much better than this! Howard and Rowena’s wedding venue was the village field in Iwerne Minster, the village where Rowena’s mother lives. By day the field is a football pitch and on a sunny day in August it was transformed with the addition of tipis into their wedding venue! I hope you love this one as much as I do. Huge thanks to Rowena and Howard, and to our fabulous friend and Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography. Do read the groom’s interview below – the story of their day is fantastic!

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re having a fabulous week. Is it summer anywhere in the UK right now? We drove from Somerset up to Cumbria yesterday with the car heater on all the way – where’s our sunshine?!! Today though, I have a lovely spring wedding to brighten your screens and lift all of our hearts. Gorgeous couple Chloe & Dan tied the knot in Cornwall, with their two adorable pooches as ring bearers on the day. Their wedding is a DIY affair with 400 (I know, right!!) handmade pom poms (by the bride) instead of confetti, a sparkly fairy light table plan and plenty of rustic touches to really make this a special and personal wedding.

Today’s wedding is another treat; a beautiful celebration with stunning florals and styling – but most importantly for me, with a brilliant sense of humour and some amazingly fun moments. Sarah and Michael were married at Mapperton House in Dorset, and opted for a vibrant colour palette and gorgeous styling touches. The bouquet is a stunner: orange tones and corals alongside blues with roses and dahlia blooms, cornflowers and agapanthus, freesias (I think!) and sweet peas.

Sarah and Michael’s colour palette was cobalt blue and orange – because, in Sarah’s own words, “my engagement ring has a sapphire and my husband and my family are ginger. Therefore, my shoes were cobalt blue jiving shoes, as we love to jive. I also had sapphire earrings to match my ring and a pearl necklace that was my grandma’s who unfortunately passed away when I was young. I also had a beautiful hair piece which matched my hair and the pearls of the necklace.”

This week is turning out to be pretty amazing for blog features! I feel spoilt… today we have the most breathtaking wedding, with a bride and groom who flew all the way from Canada to the UK for their wedding. Penny & Jacob were married at Dodford Manor in Northamptonshire. Penny grew up here, and getting wed in her home county was important for the two of them. They had a fun chilled out day with guests from all over the world.

Penny’s dress is sensational. The styling is beautiful. Jacob looks amazing. This is a fabulous summer wedding I know you will love, and with images by lovely Johnny Dent Photography, who is based in Devon.

Today’s wedding style edit from Thyme Lane Photography is one of those that make my toes tingle for how perfect it all is. The tone is moodily beautiful, with boho elegant styling in a lovely English country house. The venue – Lanwades Hall, which is hidden in the Suffolk countryside – has the most stunning rooms with beautiful light and large gardens, and the team truly made the most of the amazing location.

The shoot shows how an almost completely monochrome, minimal scheme can work in a venue like Lanwades Hall and still create a lot of interest by giving contrast to the rich colours of the great variety of backdrops.

Inspiring the shoot was a 110 years old bridal dress which Noemi at Thyme Lane Photography used in 2 ways – to match the heritage of the venue and to contrast the brand new, handmade table and ceremony arch.

Did you see Hannah and Alex’s wedding rehearsal on the blog yesterday? I’m still in love with that pretty sunflower dress… which was a clue to all the sunflower loveliness coming up on English Wedding today! Theirs was a wedding weekend following American traditions but celebrated over two days at Great Fosters in Surrey – and our lovely friend Amanda Karen Photography was there to capture it all!

Pinterest fingers ready my lovelies, for a feast of sunflowers, summer blooms and fairy lights – and one of the prettiest backless wedding dresses I’ve ever seen! Huge congratulations to a happy and amazing couple – Hannah & Alex, you’re so good together and we LOVE your wedding!

“We didn’t have a strict style or theme but I think I would describe our wedding as ‘elegant cheerful’. The only thing my husband and I decided going in was that we wanted sunflowers which to us were so cheerful and when combined with the amazing beauty of Great Fosters allowed our wedding to be both elegant but also have a relaxed cheerfulness that was exactly what we wanted.

I know so many of you will be having a wedding weekend this summer – it’s THE biggest trend in weddings this year, and a fabulous way to squeeze in a little more precious time with your nearest and dearest. So I am excited to be (virtually) spending this weekend in the company of gorgeous couple Hannah and Alex, who were married at Great Fosters in Surrey and celebrated over two amazing August days. Their wedding weekend is beautifully captured by our fabulous friends and Essex wedding photographers Amanda Karen Photography.

For the first, Hannah wears the prettiest sunflower dress, as the Saturday of their wedding weekend was for the wedding  rehearsal, then dinner and lawn games! Hannah is American, and rehearsal dinners are tradition over there. We don’t have them here but you can read more about rehearsal dinners here. I love that Alex and Hannah invited Amanda Karen Photography along to both days – they have a wonderful collection of sunflower-filled wedding pics from the Sunday, and more relaxed couple shots from the Saturday celebrations too!

The floral styling is superb for today’s wedding – say hi to beautiful Laura & gorgeous Kevan who married at High Billinghurst Farm last summer. They were blessed with gloriously hot weather for their celebrations in the Sussex countryside – and while tipis were set up nearby, the temperatures meant their dream of a woodland wedding was destined to come true.

We’re taking a fascinating behind the scenes look at the wedding today, with lovely Kim at Bespoke and Beyond Weddings & Events. Kim’s story begins on the Thursday morning with the arrival of three giant hats from Beautiful World Tents. I’ll hand over to Kim who can tell you all about her vision for this stunning celebration, and how the wedding came together beautifully, creating a truly magical woodland wedding for Laura & Kevan.
