Creating the Perfect Marriage Videos
Every wedding ceremony needs special attention. So do the guests, what they wear, how they look and their bond with you! But they are all supporting casts, of course. You and your partner are in the lead roles and that’s exactly how you must look! So sit back with some popcorn and enjoy these stunning marriage videos for some inspiration.
1. Pre-Wedding Videos
Being a significant part of marriage videos, a classy pre-wedding video shoot is quite a rage among the millennial couples. Wedding photographers and the couples go an extra mile to make their pre-wedding videos look smashing. Here are a few steal-worthy ideas for you:
A. Make your own Music Video
Shooting at different locations in gorgeous outfits with a romantic song in the background- isn’t that the dream? Videogrpahers Flintstones production has beautifully captured the emotions of this couple by using slow-motion effects, candid photography shots and a song that starts with soft music then gains rhythm, making the video look more interesting.
B. Confess your love
The core ingredient of successful marriage videos is an expression of emotions. Bare your heart out, like the guy in the video does for his fiancée as a narrative. Rangresa Pictures also shows the couple riding through the roads of Ladakh representing their new journey together!
C. Invite in style
Couples who want to go digital with their wedding invitations have another subject to add to their marriage videos. The “Save the Date” film! Use fun, catchy music with quirky visuals, along with stop-motion like Flintstone productions did with this couple, for your own wedding invitation video with a creative edge.
