Q. We're both nervous in front of the camera, but we feel it's important to have a video of the day as well as photos. How do we relax?

A. Gabriela and Alistair says: As a married couple, we can totally relate to this question. We felt uncertain of how to pose before our wedding too. The best advice is to start with choosing the right videographer, as this can make or break how you look on film. Opt for a professional who has shot various weddings, and who will be confident in telling you how to pose while using their camera to its full potential.

That's where we come in. We don't want you to worry about how you look; it's our job to make sure you look as beautiful as you feel. We recommend scheduling plenty of time for couple shots on the day; the more time you have the more used to the camera you become. We also ask our couples fun questions, such as “Who's the tidiest?” or “Who snores the loudest?” We then use the footage of you laughing in the film – it looks great without you even trying!

Q. A friend has recommend that we have a videographer, but we haven't budgeted for one. Should we cut back on other things to book one?

A. Mathew Horne says: It's often years of hard work, stress and planning that go into make your dream wedding a reality. A video is the perfect way to memorialise every aspect of it.

It allows you to remember the little things that you might otherwise forget, capture your family and friends in those heartwarming moments and record the speeches and vows that bring you to tears.

It might not be as costly as you think. A free consultation to discuss your needs can cut out any unwanted details that might bump up the price. This will allow you to re-live your day as often as you'd like, but without the worry of losing out on other important aspects. Lots of my customers say they didn't want to regret not having a video. Make sure you're confident in your decision – whether that's to book or not. Videography is often an afterthought that ends with the newlyweds saying, “I'm so glad we did it!”.
