    A little late today, but better late than never, right?

    Today’s trailer comes with an awesome story that’s remarkably similar to my friends Viv and Dan who met on the Docklands Light Railway and got married last year. Natalie and Richard met on the much posher District Line (I was never really into West London… #sorryimnotsorry), immediately hit it off and… and, well, you can read the full story courtesy of The Times, below.

    Besides the awesome back story I love the use of really rich, deep colors in this trailer – see, in particular, the epic sky shot at 3:55.

  • Victoria & Bruno’s beautiful outdoor wedding by Showmotion

    We came across this trailer because one of our clients forwarded it to us an example of a trailer where the wedding ceremony itself is the main focus. Often, trailers are all about the morning preparations, the portrait sessions, the dancing, the speeches, the party… and can sometimes gloss over the actually legally binding part of the day. So this one was refreshing and inspired us to shoot this past weekend’s ceremony a little more adventurously – more cameras, more camera movement, more effort to find interesting and unique shots for that one part of the day where you only get one take. Showmotion are doubtless helped by the ridiculously beautiful setting, complete with vases hanging from the tree – but their approach to this ceremony makes this trailer stand out a mile.

    Natalie & Sarandi’s Greco-German wedding by Jay Kay Films _ Love 24 fps _ A blog

    I forgot to post yesterday, so I’m posting this in a rush before running out to a shoot. Luckily I don’t need to say too much about this trailer beyond this: when a trailer can give you all of the feels despite being in two languages you don’t understand (5th form German with Dr. Halstead was a long time ago…), you know it’s doing something right.

  • Jodi & Patrick – New England’s first all-4k wedding by Brighter Lights Media

    Jodi & Patrick

    We know Christian from Brighter Lights Media pretty well and he sometimes hangs in our studio, so we go to see some of the footage from the trailer the Monday after the wedding. Still, it’s great to see it all together and to see a real first – New England’s first all-4k wedding.

    There’s no doubt that 4k remains a divisive issue: do you really need it if you don’t have a 4k display? What about futureproofing? What are the issues around filesizes? Does the detail in 4k look less flattering (an important issue for wedding clients)?

    None of those arguments are going to be laid to rest anytime soon, but it’s always great to see studios pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, rather than settling for the status quo, so props to Christian and Chris for that alone, even before we get into how good the trailer is.

    This trailer is a little longer than our rules strictly allow, but I believe that rules are meant to be broken. Like, for example, shooting the entire wedding in black and white (NB, not changed in post… they shot in black and white).

    Happy Friday

    Music choice for wedding trailers is an art and in this case, the song chosen does such a good job of setting the tone for the trailer – drama, romance and life-changing gravity – that it seems impossible that any other song could possibly have been used. I also love the use of titling at the end of the speech to punctuate the overall theme of the trailer. Great work.

    Destination Wedding Highlight Film - Sandra & Chris' Backyard Wedding in Connect

    I don’t often like wedding trailers that don’t use any audio other than music – I find it hard to get immersed in story if I can’t have a speech or some vows or even just some candid natural sound to open a door for me and let me in. But this trailer seems to work precisely because it doesn’t use any of those audio elements, and the majestic sense of movement that seems to be in every single shot pulls you through the story from start to finish.

  • Samantha & Stephen’s Florida wedding trailer by Lucky Lemon Films

    Last year we had a White Dress by Ben Rector Week here on Love24fps.com. This year it might have to be You Are Mine by Spencer Combs (featuring Holley Maher) Week so prolific has use been of that song in trailers we’ve seen.

    Still, let’s not hold that against Lucky Lemon Films or against this lovely trailer that manages to cover a lot of ground in under four minutes – some vows, some speeches, some great location shots, a timelapse, without ever feeling like it’s trying to cram in too much.

    We’re taking the 4th July off to celebrate that time the US made a terrible mistake but somehow managed to turn everything around. We’ll be back next week.

  • Bethany & Adam’s Hawaiian wedding by Motion Art

    There is no greater gift to a wedding filmmaker than a spectacular location, and this trailer is chock full of beautiful backdrops, from the obvious, like the beach, to the not so obvious, like the ceremony space and even the room where the bride gets ready. There’s also a deft emotional touch to how this trailer is edited which contributes hugely to its success – the shot (and sound) of the dog walking down the aisle, the groom’s kiss on his bride’s head at the rehearsal dinner and, of course, the bride’s mom getting weeping during prep. Great stuff.
