Sometimes all it takes to make a trailer stand out and grab your attention is an unusual shot – like the one of everyone standing at 1:42. As it happens this trailer is full of beautifully shot moments and arresting images, so there’s plenty of great stuff to look at!

A bride from the deep south and an English groom with a beautiful speech on the strange workings of the universe. The opening of this trailer is bright and moving, with several stunning moments of the bride in her dress. There are a few sections that could be a bit more concise, but overall, this is a beautiful Next Day Edit.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: great speeches make great wedding films, and here’s a great example of that. It can be tempting, as a bride and groom, to want some of every speech or toast in your wedding trailer, but it’s super important to trust your filmmaker to use those clips that really help tell the story of your wedding.

What makes this trailer feel so expansive is that we don’t just see footage from the wedding day itself. Paying a little extra to have your filmmakers come shoot the speeches at the rehearsal dinner, or interview you about your story before the big day can really help give a sense of the larger celebration that a wedding becomes – especially if friends and family are traveling to be there. Here, Elixir expertly weave all those elements together to form a cohesive and engaging trailer.

Most of our submissions come from filmmakers proud to show off their work to the world. Sometimes the submissions come from clients, and that’s when we really take notice, because it means they want to advocate for their filmmaker. In this case, it’s obvious why Laurel and Anderson were so excited to share the film Leslee and her team had made for them.

I first heard about Hampton Road when they won best directed feature at the recent Lucent Awards for this astounding piece. I was curious so sought out some more of their work and was impressed, but not really surprised, that like their Lucent Award-winning piece, their wedding work is full of exceptional storytelling with a heavy use of nat sound to fully immerse the viewer in the proceedings.

There are some filmmakers who will only work with couples who are planning to write and recite their own, personalized vows. And this trailer makes that argument pretty compelling. The bottom line for me is this: if you’re planning your wedding and really want to make your wedding film special, think really long and hard about writing your own vows – you won’t regret it.

Okay, who’s ready for a good cry. Anyone? There’s just something about the way this trailer is paced that draws you into Liz & Josh’s story until you find yourself blubbing into your cornflakes over Josh’s moving vows. Throw in a moving Father of the Bride speech, and a little Amy Stroup and you’ve got no chance.
