We get it, it’s totally normal to be obsessing over your wedding day once it is all done and dusted. But how is that even possible if you don’t have a highlight film to look back on? In fact, it’s virtually out of the question, especially since most couples say their wedding day passes in a blur. But if you take the time to hunt around for a top photographer and videographer team, let them know you want to add a highlight film of your special day, and then let them do the rest! This will GUARANTEE the feels won’t end once the sun sets on your big day!

What is a wedding highlight film, and why do I need this in my life?

Gone are the days of sitting down for hours watching unedited footage. A high-quality highlight film shot by a wedding videographer tells the love story of your big day in around 5 to 6 minutes. Set to an awesome soundtrack of music matched to your vibe, your wedding videographer makes a movie trailer of your day with all the best bits rolled into one. In a nutshell, it’s bloody awesome! So, you just go for it!

When you watch your wedding highlight film or look at your wedding photos, you’ll be able to enjoy all those special moments you missed as well as remember all your favourite bits too. It’s basically the best way possible to immerse yourself back in the moment of a day you’ll no doubt want to relive time and time again. Your wedding videographer can make it short enough that you can watch it back anytime on your phone.

You can also share your highlight film easily on socials, or with family, friends, and loved ones who either feature in it or were unable to make it along to your big day.

How to get the most out of your wedding highlight film

There’s nothing worse than forking out the money for a wedding videographer, only to look back on your highlight film and discover they’ve missed some of those pivotal moments that are important to you.

So, we’ve gone ahead and listed a few things we think are important when hiring your wedding videographer:

  • Arrange a catch-up with your wedding videographer ahead of your big day. Sketch out a rough timeline so they can get a feel for the day’s activities. That way you know they’ll be in the right place at the right time, every time! 
  • There’s so much going on during your wedding that you don’t want to miss. Let your wedding videographer know if you’re cutting a cake, saying something extra special in your vows, surprising your partner with a dance, planning something saucy for you or your guests, and let them know who wedding photographer will be. Every element of your day is important to your videographer’s success in making an unreal wedding highlight film.
  • Most importantly, work with your wedding videographer to develop a list of important shots. That way your videographer can keep the shot list with them as they film the wedding.
