I love this educational piece from Penny Lane about how to handle church ceremonies – and great viewing for brides and grooms as well to understand how the church you choose can affect your filmmakers abilities to get great shots of you.

There’s something very tantalizing about the slow-burn opening of this trailer. Like a delicious tease, you’re torn between wanting to jump ahead to the action, or to stop and linger on the beautiful jib shots of the door, or the wonderful lighting on some of the detail shots.

What’s better than a great wedding film? A great wedding film that’s also a surprise 50th birthday party meets wedding film.
If you’re an old softie like me, the idea of… slightly older… people getting married is always a tear-jerker, because there’s not the same sense of normative process to it. And when the bride and groom keep the fact that they’re getting married a surprise from their guests…. magic follows.

“In this perfect moment, the world is just as it should be” Lauren and Scott’s trailer by Rustic Red Studio
As we’ve been away a few days, we wanted to come back with something to knock your socks off, and here it is. An In-And-Out Burger opening (sidenote, I was in California again last week and still haven’t made it to In-And-Out… how is that possible?), and beautiful shot after beautiful shot will leave your socks well and truly knocked off.

“Since the first time you shared your lips with mine…” Lindsey & Andrew’s Dallas wedding by Joe Simon Films
This trailer is the epitome of a down to earth wedding. With such a gorgeous vibrant woodlands backdrop you feel as though you’ve been dropped into a fairytale. This trailer does a marvelous job of introducing you to this eclectic couple and tugs at your heart as you listen to the bride and groom’s vows. The editing is superb, particularly the shot of the wedding rings exploding into fireworks. I really don’t think I couple be happier though, then when the couple entered their reception not only with their pup, but on the back of a rickshaw. I mean please, what more could you really ask for?

Andrea & Simon’s utterly unique, singing, dancing, lip-syncing wedding trailer by Sunshine Wedding Films
If this trailer doesn’t make you smile, you should probably go to the doctor and have them make sure you’re not DEAD INSIDE.
Helicopters, dancing, lip-syncing, incredible New Zealand scenery…. Incredible.

Everyone had enough of hearing English accents in wedding trailers? No? Good, because here’s another one. I love the setting of this wedding, and how the folks at White Dress Films placed the bride and groom in the setting for lots of the portrait-type shots.

Brides and Grooms: if you have the opportunity to do so, and are comfortable with it, write your own wedding vows. If Melissa and I could do our wedding over again, it’s one of the things we’d do differently.
As filmmakers, we love personal, heartfelt and unique vows, because they get to the very core of what the wedding is about more than anything else that anyone else could possibly say on the day. Sure, readings are great, and a great toast can be incredible material for the wedding film, but nothing quite beats really great vows.
That’s not the only thing to love about this trailer, of course, and great vows deserve to be captured by great filmmakers, which, in this case, they were.
