Let me tell you a story….. a true story ….

A couple of years ago I received a phonecall to set up an arch for a wedding which was to be held at a private home in 3 days…   If was to go ahead all fingers crossed and praying that it would.

3 Days later the wedding did take place in a private home with the arch delivered and setup.  The wedding was being taken place in the grooms parents home for just immediate family. The wedding was not about the bride and groom but about the grooms mother who was very ill…

It was one of the most precious days of this couples life to be able to give the groom’s mother the opportunity to see her son marry the love his life. It was a day celebrated by all the family.  They did not have much money at the time but a gift was given to the couple to have the day videographed.

I picked up the arch the day after the wedding and did not hear from the couple again…  Nearly 18 months to 2 years later I received a phonecall from a bride organising her wedding.  After a long conversation we realised we had met before.   It was the same bride that had gotten married above.

When we went to setup her wedding for the dream wedding the day before that they were planning originally we spoke about their first wedding on how special it was and to have had a videographer capture that very special day meant the world to them more than words could say.

I had the pleasure and privilege of watching a small part of that video at their second wedding to see how happy the bride and groom were on the day… But the special bond shared between mother and son was captured so beautifully and so emotionally that he will be able to treasure that day more than ever as they will be able to sit down and watch over and over again…  Sadly the groom’s mother passed 2 days after their 1st wedding…

A photographer can capture the day so beautifully and those photo’s can be framed and placed in a photo album to be looked at again and again…

But a professional videographer will capture the true emotions of the day the words spoken expressing one’s love to each other and the fun and good times during the day and night.

The day goes so fast and their is no sense of time on the day with so much preparation in the day from hair and makeup, getting dressed, getting to the ceremony, the ceremony service, time for photographs, and of course the 5 hour reception…

So many of my clients say they can’t believe how fast the wedding day goes.  To be able to sit down after the wedding once the video has been edited and ready for viewing to enjoy your wedding day again.

To be able to sit down and watch you wedding and recapture the day, emotions and the moments that you had missed and moments that you will cherish in the future….

Being able to sit down with your children as they get older to see mummy and daddy get married is priceless.  Having your children laugh at the fashions of the day to the fashions of the future…

I would like to share the video below of a beautiful wedding we were able to be part of from our friends at Stu Art Video Productions who put a small video together for us for our promotional purposes but it also captures how beautiful a wedding can be and to get a true feeling of the wedding.  You can check out Stuart’s work on the link above to see how amazing his work is to be able to capture the emotions of a bride and groom’s wedding…  If not Your Wedding…
