Alternative Wedding Videos: Choosing the Perfect Style for Your Big Day!

Alternative Wedding Videos are a cherished way to relive the memories of your special day. While they can be done insanely well, traditional wedding videography isn’t for everyone. If you are looking for something a little different, there are many alternative wedding video styles to choose from. And that is what most couples prefer. Each style has its own unique benefits. But choosing the right one can be a challenge.


Are you in this dilemma? Don’t worry! In this blog, we have introduced a few tricks to create a wedding video that captures your love story in a unique and meaningful way. I should know, I’m a wedding videographer with an extensive catalogue of stunning wedding films. Why now see for yourself. Visit my Portfolio  to see my  work.

Here is Laura and Dominic’s wedding highlight video. The had an outdoor humanist ceremony and a DIY barn style reception. The whole wedding had lots of character. FYI this is a shorter summary of the longer film available here if you are interested.

Consider Your Personal Style

Your wedding video is only going to have an alternative style if you have an alternative approach to your wedding. Whether it’s a unique ceremony reading,  some non-traditional food/drinks, or even some DIY décor.  The style of your wedding video should reflect your personal taste and style. Think about the type of music you enjoy, the colours and themes of your wedding, and your overall aesthetic. Once you have a firm image in your head of what you want your wedding to be like, you can find a videographer who is skilled enough to deliver a video that would do your vision justice.


Think About the Mood You Want to Create

The mood of your wedding video is another crucial consideration. Do you want a romantic, emotional video that captures the love between you and your partner? Or would you prefer a fun and lighthearted video that captures the joy and laughter of your wedding day? Different video styles can create different moods. So think about the overall feeling you want to convey in your video.


Consider Your Alternative Wedding Day Timeline

The style of your wedding video should also be influenced by the timeline of your wedding day. A documentary-style video is the best option for a traditional wedding with a formal ceremony and reception. This style captures the event as they happen and is ideal for longer wedding events. But a shorter and more stylized video may be a better fit in case of a more casual wedding or elopement.


Choose a Style That Fits Your Budget

Another consideration is your budget. Different video styles can come with different price tags. Therefore, choose a style that fits your budget. Be upfront with your videographer about your budget. They can help you choose a style that works for you. To get a sense of how much different packages cost click here.


Think About Your Audience

Consider who your audience is when choosing a video style. Are you primarily creating the video for yourselves? Are you planning to share it with family and friends? If you want to share it with others, consider a style that will be engaging and interesting for your audience. It’s best to choose a cinematic style telling a story or a shorter highlight reel that captures the highlights of your day.
