I’ve just finished editing Natasha and Harry’s brilliant Signet Library wedding reception video. Here’s a little taster of this amazing evening reception.
This short video shows the first dances during the evening reception, held upstairs in the exquisite Signet Library. Located in Edinburgh’s Old Town, this magnificent venue is ideal for celebrating any occasion in grand style.
For this film, I used two high definition video cameras. One camera was used to shoot the live band, Camus. I mounted my second camera on my Steadicam stabiliser. This ingenious device allows me to hold the camera steady while I slowly walk around the room. Use of a Steadicam means that, unlike most videographers, I’m not rooted to the spot for the first few dances. The benefit of this setup can be seen in the film, below. Instead of shooting from the sidelines, I’m free to walk slowly around the dance floor. Increased mobility means the optimum view for recording. Your wedding video recorded this way looks great and makes your wedding video more cinematic and exciting to watch.
Filming Natasha and Harry’s wedding reception at The Signet Library was great fun. It’s the perfect venue for using a Steadicam. The spacious dance floor means you get the full benefit of mobility while filming. Also, shooting with two cameras means you get to see the live band, as well as the two most important people of the day – the newly-weds!
The Steadicam system is a sound investment which makes a huge difference to your wedding video. I use this fantastic piece of equipment for most of my wedding video bookings. Couples tell me that the first dance is one of the highlights of their day. Make sure you have your wedding filmed to the highest standards. Make sure you’ll want to watch your wedding video again and again!
