Themes for Indian Wedding Video
We’ve compiled 8 different themes for you to choose from for your own wedding video:
1. Slice of Life
Take clips from real wedding events, or go for a candid pre-wedding video shoot to make your Indian wedding video look alive and real. Take a look at the video directed by Weva photography where they’ve assembled some beautiful moments from the wedding:
Or you can ask for a wedding trailer like Clicks my Dreams did with this couple to give it a look of a documentary film:
What's needed for a 'Slice of Life' Indian wedding video -
- Documentary-style coverage of the event
- A depiction of real life, as it is, without added details like costumes, scripted, planned and shot only for the video.
2. Quirky videos
Get everybody involved in your video. An Indian wedding video is all the more fun when the aunts shake it like Shakira and your naughty sisters flirt with your fiancé with her moves! Consult your wedding choreographer for the right props and costumes.
Go for a lip-dub song including everyone in your family to quirk it up. Just like this family did in the video created by Beats & Fusion Studio:

If you think that making an Indian wedding video is going to cost you a fortune, that’s not necessarily true. All it needs is the creative skills and vision of the cinematographer for an outstanding wedding video. So do your research well. Browse the internet and look for more videos of the vendors you pick. Coordinate with your wedding choreographer and wedding decorator before you start shooting for the video.
Technical trends - Add These For A Stellar Indian Wedding Video
Piqued enough to try these distinct Indian wedding video styles to capture your forever story? Good! Then, go ahead and talk to your wedding photographer about what's doable and would work with you as a wedded couple. Then, take the conversation a step forward by exploring all new technical details that can really enhance your narrative to the next level.
These new Indian wedding video techniques include -
A. Drone footage videos
Gaining footage from all angles of your wedding venue truly means a 360-degree experience these days, with the addition of remote-controlled drones. These get top-level and hard-to-achieve shots from remote locations (think a close-up from an obscure ledge, a top-level panoramic shot to cover the vastness of your venue etc.)
B. A Highlights reel
Not everyone has the time, patience or energy to sit through a complete wedding film. Even if you've had the most stellar experience, it's better to drop a tease of it among your friends, family and on your social platforms to raise everyone's curiosity about it. Enter a highlights reel, that covers the best moments from your entire experience.
C. Boomerang video
Boomerang videos are the new-It experience among Insta-worthy social posts from a wedding, with a couple going as far as shooting (and releasing a complete wedding video using the software). Experiment with the style and gain some amusing highlights that would call attention to the larger Indian wedding video.
D. Add a time-lapse video
A time-lapse is another new technique which covers the entire experience, documentary-style from possibly 1 or 2 stationary angles. Such videos also add to the curio value of your wedding experience and barely make a dent as far as your wedding videography costs are concerned.
It’s also important to discuss the music before finalising the songs. Have transparent conversations with all your wedding vendors because making a successful wedding film is teamwork.
