Best Wedding Videographer 2013, Green Biscuit Studio
There is undoubtedly something a bit surreal about seeing your own face on screen. For many people, the film of their wedding will be the first time they’ve ever been in front of a camera and that alone is something quite special. The Best Wedding Videographer category was designed to honour those film makers who realise this and make you feel more like a movie star than ever.
There’s no doubt that many couples question the investment of a wedding video. With tight wedding budgets, a shy temperament or an authoritative parental figure disparaging the genre, the humble wedding film can often seem to some to be a bit of an extravagance.
What we at The Wedding Industry Awards see, however, is a wedding day brought to life. In a photo, the little flower girl is just looking bashful but in a film we see her walk down the aisle and break into an enormous smile when she reaches the altar. In a photo, guests have their arms in the air and expressions of rapture on their faces; in the film we see them dancing, singing, laughing and partying. In a photo the father of the bride looks reflective whereas in the film he is holding back the emotion as he fights to get the carefully worded speech out.
With such a poignant ability to reinject life into your wedding and your wedding guests long after the day itself has finished, wedding videos are fast becoming a necessity. Luckily, the wedding industry is filled with talented, passionate filmmakers who tell the story of the wedding in a beautifully cinematic and epically romantic style.
