Filming Tips

Pick a few people to film your Must Have scenes. A bridesmaid or groomsman, good friend or family member. That way you know you'll have a few shots of your favourite moments.

If you have people that you definitely want in your video – parents/kids/grandparents – be sure to mention this, so footage of them can be captured on the day.

On your wedding day take step back and enjoy yourself and trust your guests to capture the moments you want and give them the freedom to improvise.


Included accessories

Tripod: Place a tripod nearby the mic to capture the speeches and another on the Bride and Groom table.

Selfie Stick: All our cameras come with selfie sticks. These are particularly great for passing the cameras around the guests and getting a real behind-the-scenes experience. 

Action Light: Attach our Action Light to a camera so you don't miss out on capturing anyones sweet dance moves.  Our Action Light has multiple modes to adjust brightness and light speed.


Optional extras:

Chest Clip or Strap: For the ultimate POV filming, have a groomsmen or your celebrant put on the Chest Clip or Strap. It can be easily hidden under a tie for that up close and personal recording of the guys getting ready, escorting guests to their seats, and the exchanging of the vows. 

Dog Mount: Attaching the camera to your favorite furry friend lets you capture a truly remarkable view as guests oohs and ahs over your best four-legged friend trotting down the aisle waiting to give that slobbery kiss. Check out our Pinterest Board for some inspiration!
