Wedding Wednesday - The VideoWednesday, May 20, 2015
Indulge me again, if you will, and allow me to talk about our wedding some more. Here I'm sharing a few stills from our wedding video, they're not fabulous quality but tell the story of our ceremony. We'd briefly talked about having a videographer but didn't come to any sort of conclusion. And then, a few days before the wedding, Andy's sister asked if we wanted them to set up a camera in the corner. Something simple, homemade (and free!).
I love that we have it, I can't tell you how many times I've watched it already. It goes out of focus and you can hear the whirr as it re focusses itself. We can hear the click of camera shutters, traffic, our two year old flower girl chatting away but on the day itself, we heard none of this. On the day we didn't really even notice anyone else in the room.
To watch it is so lovely. I get to see what happened in the room before I arrived, and get to see Andy as he waits for me, he didn't look round to see me walking in so he gets to see that, and each time we watch it we can see the reactions and expressions of different people in the room, including the random stranger peering in through the window. It's a pretty amazing thing to have, even in all it's amateur glory. I wish we'd filmed more of the day.
So to get to the the point I'm trying to make, if you're getting married have a video camera somewhere about the place, even if you hate the thought of being filmed, I promise you won't regret it.
