It’s Memorial Day weekend here in the US, and Spring Bank Holiday in the UK, which means a couple of things. Firstly, we’ll be taking a well-deserved day off on Monday, and also that it’s the official kickoff of wedding season for a lot of people.
If you’re shooting this weekend and need some inspiration, watch this lovely piece by Incer Studios – full of warmth, personality and story.

As a proud Lancastrian, I’m preprogrammed to find all Yorkshire accents offensive. But then I spent my university years in York, which softened me, and now I must be completely rehabilitated because I found everything about this Teesside wedding to be charming and wonderful. Maybe it’s just the way the folks at Know Media shot it…

This trailer, for me, is all about intimacy. There’s something about the opening flowing into the bride and groom prep that makes you feel very present in the wedding.

The question for me, after watching this trailer, is who can I pay so I can go shoot a wedding in New Zealand?
From filmmaker Holly: “Because NZ sees the sun first, we reckon it was the first wedding shoot of the year, in the world! Therefor this film is the first wedding film shot in 2015.” How awesome is that?

A much wiser man than me once explained that what differentiates filmmaking from photography is movement and how we capture it. Alexandros and Katerina’s wedding film by Hauke Digital is a two-minute long dance that tells you everything you need to know without uttering a single word. It’s kinetic, beautiful and has a flow unlike anything else I’ve seen this year.

Oh. My. I imagine that Maura at Creative Films spent a good long time checking she’d packed her wide lenses for Anna-Louise and Nick’s ceremony in the western San Juan Mountains. It’s not often that you get to see bride and groom almost at cloud level, and this film uses every last inch of that incredible, epic backdrop. Stunning.

Here’s a pretty-much guaranteed way to get me to love your wedding film: include a slow-mo shot of the bride taking a swing at a piñata with a baseball bat before she proceeds to rip it apart with her bare hands.
I’ve watched Lane and Will’s film a few times now, and what I love most is just how much fun it is. Look at the faces – people aren’t smiling, they’re grinning from ear-to-ear in just about every shot. It’s got style, personality and, most of all, it’s just abundantly happy.

Marriage is as much about running hand-in-hand together towards the unknown as it is about where you’ve been before, which makes it all the more fitting that there’s such a sense of adventure to Nikko and Darrell’s wedding film from Kismet Creative. Bursting with colour and passion, I love how effortlessly this ties together the grand scale of the setting with the intimacy of the event. For all the incredible sights on show, it never loses focus on the couple.

I’m not convinced I believe in love at first sight, but I do – from experience – believe in insane chemistry at first sight, which then has a really great chance of developing into love… which all sounds very scientific and boring, so stop reading this and instead watch this beautiful trailer and let Liza and Patrick explain it for you, way more eloquently than I can.

Let’s be totally honest. This trailer opens with such a knockout, killer, OMGDIDYOUSEETHAT shot that pretty much anything could happen after that point and I’d want to keep watching. And next time I shoot a beach wedding, I’m totally stealing that shot.
