Four Reasons to Book your Family FilmApril 4, 2023
Trying to decide when is the perfect moment to exchange your wedding vows? The decision over what to read and when to read is purely personal. And the good news is that there is no right or wrong answer except what you are most comfortable with! Before we go further it is important to consider a few aspects of it:
How important is it for your partner?
Wouldn’t you love to express feelings to your partner in a unique way and make them memorable? Your wedding is special so you should consider your partner's thoughts and experience and express that you wish to celebrate this emotional day together. Personalising your wedding vows or adding unique touches is a great way to embody loving emotions.
How important vows are for your wedding film?
The spoken words you exchanged with your partner with scenes of love and connection between the two of you create a beautiful romantic wedding experience. It not only helps to tell the story of your actual wedding day but also helps to uncover your love story. A story of how you met, who you are as a couple, and how you said "Yes." All of this serves as a perfect reminder that I am sure you would love to feel and remember all your life.
There are certain couples who often shy from sharing their wedding vows in front of everyone. Trust me; you don't have to. But if you are then apart from the ceremony and the speeches, there are other moments where you can read the vows. To help you, I have identified five different moments to exchange wedding vows and celebrate the most important moment of your life.
1. Exchanging letters at preparation
Writing your wedding vows is a personal decision. If you love expressing yourself by putting your feelings into words, go ahead. It's a chance to tell your story by summing it up in meaningful words and promises with the person you love. The first idea is to do it during your morning preparations and share something truly meaningful.
2. Before the bride and groom’s first look
Exchange the most profound words of love in private, intimate settings. You can plan this important moment before the first look and share exactly what you want to say to each other without having so many people watching you. Make sure to stay hidden from each other’s sight (maybe standing on the sides of a corner) and then perform the first look.
3. After the bride and groom’s first look
You can choose to exchange wedding vows after the first look on your wedding day. This means you get to spend more time together and savour your love. Spend those moments embracing, giggling, and sharing love with your partner while reading the vows.
4. At your portrait session
I will suggest doing an exchange of vows during the portrait session. This is because it gives the couple more time to get into the mood and confess everything wholeheartedly. Reading vows to your loved one during the portrait sessions makes it all the more lively and full of emotions.
5. Wedding ceremony
You can read the wedding vows during the wedding film and photography session or ceremony in the presence of your family and friends. This is typically followed in most weddings, where vows are crowned with the ring exchange. You can recite them or personalise the experience by writing your own.
These are some of the moments you can exchange wedding vows – whichever you choose, there is no right or wrong, so pick what suits your love story best. Because weddings are an important part of every couple’s life, they want to remember the important occasion through videos and photos. If you would wish to have your wedding vows and the whole day filmed seamlessly, let's chat. I would really love to be part of your most memorable moments!
