Barbara and Dwayne hired me as their wedding videographer for their stunning summer wedding at Tudor Barn. If there’s ever a love story that tugs on the heartstrings, Barbara and Dwayne’s is it!
The story of Barbara and Dwayne is one that is 15 years in the making, and I like to think this wedding video sums it up! It was a very emotional wedding day for us all, and was an honour to capture as wedding videographer.
Wedding Videography – the interviews
For my wedding videography I love filming intro and exit interviews. They’re the best part of my job! Barbara and Dwayne’s were particularly heartwarming, especially with Barbara recounting Dwayne feeding her with apple crumble! I managed to get some great footage of what the pair were looking forward to throughout the wedding day, which I knew would fit perfectly later on.
After the interviews, my assistant and I both filmed the bride and groom getting ready with their families. We captured some finer details including close-ups on hair, makeup and a beautiful photo board before making our way over to the ceremony. We had two cameras to capture the vows from both sides, plus one more walking shot down the aisle. I love filming weddings with multiple cameras – but being unobtrusive is absolutely essential.
After capturing the confetti shot we moved onto some video messages. Lots of people were keen to celebrate a wedding that took 15 years to finally happen! We then played with some fun shots between the groom and bridal parties, including a fantastic “tug of war” scenario.
Back inside, we shot some multilingual speeches before the cake cutting. (It was Barbara’s turn to feed Dwayne this time!) After some more video messages, the big moment finally arrived. Barbara had been fretting about their first wedding dance, but she needn’t have worried. It was beautifully choreographed and ended with everybody flooding onto the dance floor! Getting the first dance right is essential for any wedding videographer!
The finale to an emotional wedding video
As the festivities began to wind down, I took Barbara and Dwayne to one side once again for their post-wedding interviews. Again, these were very candid but very sweet (and only lasted a couple of minutes) – Barbara even confessed she hadn’t noticed Dwayne’s outfit!
When I got all the footage home, I edited it into two versions. One shorter version included still images that I’d captured, whilst a longer one-hour version covers the whole ceremony and the speeches in full. This can be viewed online upon request – if you’d like to see it, or to discuss your wedding video requirements – perhaps at Tudor Barn – , please get in touch with me today!
