What a shoot I have for you today! If you are looking for elopement inspiration...
Welcome back to this afternoons featured presentation on Saturday Cinema . This gorgeous wedding film was sent into me by Michael Crawford from Top Room Wedding Videos who I featured just before Christmas, and i absolutely love it! It was a film that he shot while also a wedding guest.
It’s the wedding of Jake and Fiona Tucker who were married on 19th March 2011, they held the service at Life Church, Peterborough and the reception at Bassmead Manor, Eaton Socon, Cambridgeshire.
The wedding is just gorgeous, it’s very chilled out and relaxed and the location is just perfect. I especially like the bridesmaids bouquet, so simply but just lovely, I am loving the venue and also Michael’s use of muted tones and light spots within the film itself. It totally matches this beautiful wedding.
I asked Michael What his favourite part of the wedding was ‘The weather was glorious on the day which seems to make every aspect of the day shine. The reception venue was really beautiful and I loved the mini fish and chips in newspaper cones they were serving while the photos were being taken. Mmmmmmmmm! I can still taste them!’
What do you think make a good wedding video? ‘I think there are a number of things that can come together to make a good wedding video. Firstly, having wonderful weather and a beautiful church and reception location can go a long way to making a video stand out. I think a video needs to attempt to capture the spirit of the day and reflect the personalities of the couple highlighting not just the big moments but the small details they’ve gone to the effort of including in their day. One of the things I try to bear in mind is that I’m trying to capture moments that the Bride and Groom don’t get to see so that when they watch it it’s not just a reminder of the day but they see lots of things they didn’t even know happened!
From a post production point of view, I think that the music you choose and how you edit to it is very important and colour grading to create a certain ‘look’ or style is important too.
