Winter Wedding Video

How to plan for your winter wedding?

Videos are now a near essential in any wedding. Of course you can catch moments with photography but you wouldn’t be able to hear the best man’s speech, the music of the first dance or the cheers of your friends and family when you leave the wedding ceremony.

I was giving the stage in the past for a videographer who covered mainly area of considerations before the wedding. However, I thought winter weddings may need their own attention and for that I approached Geoff of TudnoTV .

Geoff was interested in photography and videos since his teens. He has a Foundation Degree in Digital Media and Television Production as well as years of experience in both filming and editing techniques. Five years ago Geoff decided to turn his passion into his profession.

Geoff is very passionate about the work he does and even spends most of his spare time, honing and polishing both filming and editing skills, as well as practicing his hobby of landscape and aerial photography.

After this introduction I’ll pass it on to the expert himself to talk about winter weddings. Over to you Geoff…

Here at TudnoTV, we get asked to provide wedding video services all year round, not just in the traditional summer months.

An autumn or winter wedding can be a challenge, not just for your photographer or videographer, but for everyone involved.

A cold and/or wet day is not a very inspiring back drop for photos or video, issues with brides maids dresses, wedding cars and guests that you may not encounter in the summer months all conspire to make things that bit more challenging

Having said that any professional videographer worth his salt will come prepared with showerproof camera covers which enable the equipment to still be used, a large umbrella to help shelter guests and anyone else who may need it, so that we can still get those shots that everyone wants.

Other things to consider if planning a winter wedding are should you have a reception marquee or a proper brick built place like a hotel or other venue.

A few years ago, we were filming at a wedding in December, I think it was around the 21st. The bridesmaids got soaked, and hair do’s were all over the place. They had a marquee which really felt like it was about to take off every few minutes and because it was so cold, and everyone wanted the heat blowers on, the ice sculpture did not last long. The couple took it in their stride as they were outdoorsy types anyway, and they loved the wedding video.

A few other things to consider, winter or summer, are the position of the bride and grooms table. From the point of view of video and photography, in front of a big window is not ideal, as it means everyone is in silhouette.

Also consider getting the best man to tell everyone that might be speaking where the cameraman is. Only a few weeks ago I filmed a wedding in North Wales and all went well until a speech by someone not on the main table made his humorous speech….with his back to the camera the whole time!!

As wedding videographers, we like to be unseen and unheard, we move amongst the wedding party, ninja like, getting the shots we need to put together a lovely DVD for you to keep forever as a living, laughing, fun way to remember your special day. To this end we are very unlikely to tell you what to do and interrupt the day. 

This is a sign of good “fly on the wall” wedding videographer. 

One that sets everything up to suit himself rather than being in the background and getting everything as it happens is not the way to go. Photographers do that because they have too. Videographers don’t. We just film the day as it happens.

Here’s a short showreel of some of our wedding footage.
