You may have noticed that my wedding videography is becoming just as popular as my still photography – I love to capture the image, still or moving! When it comes to wedding video production, Central London really is the place to be – there are so many beautiful locations to marvel at. Nothing could be more beautiful than the plush Savoy Hotel, then, where Riham and Muhammad celebrated their nuptials last year.
Wedding video production Central London
Riham and Muhammad booked my six-hour wedding video package, so my day started later on at 5pm, allowing me to capture all of the evening’s festivities. It was great fun to travel up to the Strand and be amongst such grandeur of this famous hotel, which had been expertly decorated for 300 guests. Riham and Muhammad certainly aren’t short of friends!
As I arrived, the big band were setting up and I could see that music was going to be a big theme for the evening. Soon after I got there, the newlyweds arrived in style to the sound of traditional drummers. They’d hired their own still photographers, so I worked alongside them to capture the spectacular entrance from every angle – I had three cameras, two on tripods and one on my shoulder.
With the traditional wedding breakfast taking place in the evening, I was lucky enough to capture the touching speeches from both the bride and groom’s family. Riham’s father certainly knew how to work a room, and Muhammad’s sisters and cousin also had a few words to say. Last up was Muhammad who, along with his support acts, received a lot of cheering and applause!
Video messages from the guests
It was clear that no stone had been left unturned when it came to making Riham and Muhammad’s big day as special as possible. Alongside the lavish hotel itself, the couple had invested in some quirky features to keep their guests entertained, including liquid nitrogen ice cream! The sweet treats were prepared on location and frozen to -180°c – impressive and delicious. For those who were fainter of heart, there was also a chocolate fountain, which was very hard to resist indeed!
After getting some great shots of the couple enjoying their desserts, I circled the tables to get video messages from the guests in both English and Arabic. Before long it was time to head home and begin editing my final versions. Riham and Muhammad now have two edits – a 45-minute version and a 4-minute video. I like to make these “highlight” videos as they’re great for sharing on social media and putting on your own wedding website.
