We’re taking a few days off to stuff our faces and buy artificially discounted consumer goods. We’ll be back in December to share more of the best wedding films from around the world, but in the meantime, here’s some stupid people trying – and failing – to fry turkeys.
Happy Thanksgiving!Read More »
It’s Thanksgiving here this week, so we’re going to take the rest of the week off and we’ll see you back here next week. If you’re not going to be stuffing your face with turkey, pass the time by watching this beautiful trailer from Story Of Eve.

For today, something a little different, to remind us that wedding films can be whatever you want them to be. Defy convention. Shoot film.

I love this trailer because it’s all about rhythm and movement – two things every wedding day should have. What’s so great about the way this is shot and edited is that even moments – like the dress hanging in the hallway – that are usually static have been infused with energy, so the entire film flows and pulses and kinda makes you want to stand up and dance.

“Open my chest and give her my heart” | Elana & Mark’s rainy elopement film by Luminance Wedding Films
In this trailer there is clearly a fair bit of material not captured as part of the wedding itself. Any chance brides and grooms can get to shoot with their filmmaker before the wedding should be seized with both hands. It’s a great chance to get comfortable in front of camera and get tons of material in a much more relaxed and natural way.

“Today a brand new chapter begins” | Tina & Timothy’s spectacular Indian wedding by First Look Films
As a filmmaker, when you have breaktaking scenery as a backdrop to a wedding, it’s really easy to go the extra mile and shoot a lot of footage that helps establish space. The trick, as exemplified by this trailer from First Look Films, is to not let the sense of place overwhelm the film and make sure there’s still plenty of people in the place.

Not all wedding trailers are about story. Some are about emotion, and spectacle and occasion, and that’s a good thing. This one, though, is all about story. The fact is that if you have an amazing story as a couple – a meet cute – and you incorporate it into your wedding through vows, speeches or anything anyone says, your wedding filmmakers will probably jump on it.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: personal vows make for great wedding films, but also for great weddings. In ten years when you look back on your wedding do you want to remember your spouse saying “I do”? Or “I promise to chew my food quietly”. Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Oh and don’t even watch Brian’s vows to Whitney’s daughter unless you want to bawl your eyes out.

Katherine Anne from Keepsake Films told me that for the second half of this trailer she wanted to keep your attention without using any nat sound, just through the shots and how she captured Bekah and Adam’s personalities. I think she nailed it.
