This short video shows newly-wed Natasha and Harry during their photo shoot in Queen Street Gardens, Edinburgh city centre.
I filmed this lovely couple getting married at St Giles’ Cathedral, with reception held nearby at The Signet Library.
This video shows highlights of the photo shoot in Queen Street Gardens. The photo shoot started at The Signet Library. Then we moved on to the beautiful Queen Street Gardens, before heading back for outdoor group photos at Parliament Square.
The logistics for this Edinburgh wedding video were tough. Really tough! After the wedding ceremony, I had to make my way through the festival crowds and head down to Queen Street Gardens. This is no mean feat when you have thousands of people crowding the streets, you’re carrying thousands of pounds worth of equipment and you’re in a hurry. But well worth the effort to capture the beautiful footage seen in this video.
Queen Street Gardens is a little oasis of tranquillity in Edinburgh’s New Town. What a difference compared to filming outside St Giles’ Cathedral. When filming a photo shoot, I like to record lots of little sequences which I then edit together to music chosen by the newly-weds. The choice of music dictates the pace of the edit. For this video, the choice of music, as well as the setting, meant I used lots of slow-motion shots. I think this has worked really well, particularly the shots of the bride in Queen Street Gardens.
I really like the varied selection of music chosen by newly-weds. Sometimes the music is quite upbeat, meaning the edit has a faster pace, with lots of shorter video clips. This results in a much ‘snappier’ video edit. Lots of wedding suppliers mention how different each wedding is. This is particularly true for my wedding video edits. Each wedding may have similar parts throughout the day, but the choice of music combined with my editing means that no two wedding video edits are ever the same.
