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.

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.

Calling all London brides and grooms… actually – this is for all of you gorgeous couples out there who are having a destination wedding in Europe or around the UK! If you’ve been planning your wedding for a while you’re bound to have heard couples saying their wedding film was the best decision they made (or perhaps not having one was their only wedding day regret) – it’s something I hear over and over again. So today, I thought I’d share a beautiful showreel from our friends at HD Moments as a gentle reminder of how much a wedding film could mean to you!

Just one look at Rachael’s gorgeous dress and I was hooked on this stunning wedding from Huntsham Court. Lovely English Wedding Directory member Justina from HD Moments shared it with us, and I hope you will love watching it as much as I do!

As a wedding videographer, my work takes me to several places, but one of my favorite places is London – even when the weather is freezing, it is lovely to click wedding pictures there. As a London wedding videographer, I was tasked to document the winter wedding of Rachael and Josh at Huntsham Court.

The “made for each other” pair!

In this Huntsham court wedding video, you can clearly witness the joy and happiness of Rachael and Josh – they are finally solidifying their bond of love, and it is a surreal feeling, as they told me. The bride looks remarkable in her attire – the outfit she picked out flattered her curves in the right way, and suited her marvelously. The hair, accessories, and shoes were picked out with a lot of thought – everything matched with the overall theme of the wedding. The groom wasn’t to be outdone – he too looked fit and dapper in his suit. He carried it off with confidence and his eagerness was apparent in his demeanor. He couldn’t wait to meet his soon-to-be-wife at the altar.

Happy Saturday, Beautiful! I had the most wonderful day yesterday at my friends Jess & Neil’s wedding at the fabulous Langley Castle – have you been? What an amazing day – congratulations to you both! xoxo … Today we’re road-tripping it gently back to the Lakes in time for a birthday party… it’s a crazy and brilliant weekend full of old friends and new, and I love it!

If you’re wedding planning, supplier searching or generally looking for inspiration then I have something fab to share with you today. The English Wedding Blog Directory is my quick, simple and gorgeous place to go to find all the best wedding suppliers – and every month I’ll introduce you to all the new folks on there… creatives, designers, and more!

Every time I feature a real wedding on the English Wedding Blog I ask the bride and groom to complete a little interview for me, and I ask about their theme, their suppliers and for any advice they’d like to give other couples. Last week I was reminded by one of the interviews that so many couples either wish they’d had a wedding film, or are so relieved they chose to book a videographer (even if it’s often at the last minute).

Nicole and Josh must be thrilled with their wedding film. The highlights show how madly in love this gorgeous bride and groom are. It’s all about love for family too: Nicole’s sister’s speech is a highlight, and Grandma is such a star too! Their outdoor wedding shows how fabulous the English weather can be… and I wanted to share it with you today as a reminder of how brilliant this summer is going to be.

I had the sound turned right up on my laptop when I clicked play… and to be honest, it made me jump a little! But ten seconds in and I was grinning like a fool. Yung’s serenade is a fabulous start to this romantic wedding film by my lovely sponsors HD Moments.

Alana and Yung married at Devonshire Terrace in London.  Although the ceremony had a contemporary and simple theme the gorgeous couple stayed true to their roots and the style of their wedding day paid tribute to their Chinese heritage.

Enjoy the wedding film, which takes you from the wedding ceremonies through to a wonderful reception at the Phoenix Palace Restaurant. This is a wonderful modern wedding – with a dancing Chinese dragon for something just a little different! I LOVE it!

Watch out too for the paper lanterns hung outside amidst a scattering of fairy lights, for Alana’s stunning updo and glorious bouquet, and – right at the end – the most adorable wedding car imaginable!

Hey lovelies, happy weekend! (Didn’t it take a long time coming?!) I have fab news today – we’re looking forward to featuring lots of lovely wedding highlights films on the English Wedding Blog in the next few months, as the ace team from HDMoments have joined my little gang of handpicked sponsors. Yay!!!

HD Moments are a professional wedding cinematography company experienced in capturing sound, motion and most importantly emotion. They provide the most stunning cinematic wedding videography services to couples in London, West Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey and everywhere in between!

I asked lovely Justina to tell us a little about the story behind HD Moments: “Before HDMoments was born we owned a photography business, we had a lot of adventures and successes but eventually the idea of videography and the challenges that went with it started to appeal to us. We came to the conclusion that we wanted to tell stories in a different way… for us that was video.”

It’s movie time! Hannah and Joseph had a gorgeous, London-themed wedding with contemporary styling and beautiful details: I love so many things. The bouquet is divine; Hannah’s Claire Mischevani dress is exquisite; there are tube maps and big red buses, spectacular flowers and an impressive reception venue. Hannah’s also written a lovely wedding report for us and told me, “I know it is a massive cliche but our wedding day was the most incredible, memorable and happiest day of our lives. We couldn’t have wished for it to have been more perfect. With our closest friends and family l there to celebrate with us, it really was our perfect day.

The theme of the wedding was ‘London’. We had iconic London image themes throughout the day, tube map table plans, London buses to transport the guests from church to venue and oyster card holders as favours and of course it was based in London.
