Top 5 Wedding Video Ideas from Abbey Wedding Video Kilkenny
If you’ve been following my blog weddings in Kilkenny for a while now, you’ll know I love to help inspire young couples to get creative with their wedding videos. Top 5 Wedding Video Ideas First visit?
Hello! I’m Joe, a wedding videographer covering Tipperary & Kilkenny and further afield. In this blog post I’ll be sharing some great ideas I’ve had for wedding videos, but maybe you’d like to find out more about me, read testimonials, or information on prices and packages first? I’ll wait for you…
I am full of ideas for wedding videos and will share a few of them here with you. Many of them naturally deal with the wedding ceremony itself, but there is an endless variety of creative and original ways of filming your wedding such as Rock the Frock. This time however, I’ve taken things one step further…
- Wedding invitations!
Let’s think outside the box, and think about wedding invitations. No, not your regular paper invitation that fits neatly into an envelope. I’m thinking of a real, live, walking and talking invitation. Have you ever thought of being filmed as you personally invite your guests to your wedding? Just imagine, we could film you in your living room or during a candle-lit dinner, you then turn to the camera and announce the date. Perhaps you won’t be able to contain your giggles, but that’s all part of the fun. I think your friends will be enthralled with this fun invitation and eagerly anticipate your wedding day i have put together a wedding supplies website dedicated to your wedding day.
- Save the date
Recently I filmed a couple as they announced their engagement and then I made copies for their close friends and relatives which they then posted. Of course they had to keep their engagement top secret or else the news would spread like wildfire and ruin the surprise. The young bride told me about the look of surprise on her aunt’s face as she watched the DVD and realised that is was a wedding invitation & idea’s munster. She was overjoyed and now they are all very excited about the wedding.
- A DVD as wedding favour
This provides another opportunity where you can become as creative as you like. We could make what appears to be a music video of the two of you walking along a beach with your favourite song playing in the background. Or if you are not comfortable talking to the camera, we could do a black and white movie (think of a Charlie Chaplin movie) with subtitles to thank everyone and at the end the groom steals a cheeky kiss!
Thank you video.
This is another very personal and thoughtful way of using video, where you can personally thank your guests for attending your wedding in Tipperary, and to thank friends and family for all their support and help during the preparations. I filmed a hilarious video recently, where the lively couple did a rap, at times it was hard to keep the camera still, but I managed as I am professional after all. All the relatives were highly amused as they watched this together. This particular video was filmed in advance and then shown to guests towards the end of the evening of the actual wedding day. The ingratiated couple enjoyed a huge round of applause from their wedding guests and a few staff.
- Game show.
This idea is perhaps not for the faint of heart, and may not appeal to the more demure bride, but would be fantastic if you’re out to have as much fun as possible on your wedding day and want to entertain your guests. A pre-filmed game show where the bride and groom compete is guaranteed to get the maximum amount of laughs from your guests. Perhaps you’ve seen the Abbey Video on Facebook of the young couple who mimic Ant n’ Dec? This crazy couple have inspired many wedding videos along a similar theme and recently I’ve had a few enquiries about filming videos along a similar theme idea’s.
My calendar has nearly reached full capacity, however I still have a couple of slots available in November, and a handful in mid-week. We can’t believe how we’ve already received so many bookings to film weddings & family events for spring and summer 2015 / 16. Young couples are becoming increasingly more organised and planning every aspect of their wedding further in advance in order to secure the best services and manage costs. I think this is very sensible as I do get booked up early. I hate to disappoint, especially when a couple have received a great recommendation and their hearts are set on using Abbey Video Productions numerous Packages available.
So if you like what you see, please get in contact soon! We can meet for a casual chat over coffee, where of course you will not feel obligated or pressured into choosing Abbey Video to film your wedding day. If you have any questions at all, drop me a line or email and we can talk about bringing your ideas to life.
That’s about all for now, but I’ll be back soon with more ideas and thoughts from the world of wedding videography.
