It’s the age-old question when it comes to brides and wedding planning…. do you really need to hire a videographer for your wedding?

In a survey not hiring a wedding videographer was found to be the number one regret for couples after the wedding day was over. The main reason that was cited by most of the couples why they did not go for a videographer for their most important day of their life was that they felt like it was one more added expense to an already costly day. And anyway, if you have already put in a lot of money in a photographer, why would you need a videographer?

But how would you remember that funny joke your best friend cracked during the toast or relive that emotional moment you had with your dad during the father-daughter dance, the vows, the applause, the laughter, the bloopers, the emotions, the sound, the movement…

There are many other reasons why a bride should consider hiring a videographer in addition to a photographer too. Let’s go over the top 5 reasons to hire a wedding videographer on your wedding day.

Relive the emotions

A video can capture continuous emotions – happiness, excitement, and many other expressions that are sometimes hard to convey through a photo. With a video, you get to experience the same feelings all over again. And when coupled with some sleek editing, a soft romantic song or beautiful background music there is no better way to relive the emotions of your day than through your wedding video.

Be in multiple places at once

Wouldn’t you want to know how impatient your groom looked before your grand entry or the reactions of your guests while the toasts were made or the look on your mother’s face when you walked down the aisle!! A wedding video will help you to relive the entire day and capture your special day to the fullest extent. A video allows you to experience those special moments that you didn’t even know happened around you and your guests.

Movement and sound

Video adds elements of sound and movement; the first kiss and the first dance would definitely look good in a photograph, but what about that romantic song played in the background during the first dance or that big smile that beamed on your grandmother’s face when she saw you kiss your man. You can watch yourself walk down the aisle or listen to what your guests were saying at that specific moment and relive that moment when it is captured on video.


There are times when some of your relatives or friends cannot attend your wedding due to work commitments or some other reason. Why would they want to miss all the fun just because they had some prior commitments? Videos are so easy to share – just one link will showcase your perfect day. Moreover, there is no going through the whole lot of photos and picking out the best images to show people.

Repeat viewing

You’ll be able to watch your wedding day video with your children and grand children – how cool is that!! You could even make it an anniversary special tradition to watch your wedding video with your family. Imagine sitting down and watching your wedding video and laughing over how tensed you looked before the ceremony or blushing before your grand children when you shared your first kiss.

When you have the advantage of high definition equipment that offers crystal clear pictures, sound and motion, wouldn’t you love to have a sydney wedding videographer to capture every precious moment of your wedding?
