How to get the best from “Church” & “Outdoor Wedding” video?

Just received two very sweet appreciation messages from two different couples who got their one-year marriage anniversary celebrated! (Hooray!)

剛收到上年結婚的兩對新人,分別送上溫馨的信息, 告訴我, 他們正在慶祝 一週年紀念, 亦 感謝我們在他們大日子的幫忙。 真的是泛泛眼,又一年了……

While I was sending them our best wishes, I thought, isn’t it nice to attach a clip of their wedding highlight video (Same Day Edit) which could give them a good memory refresh on this special day?!
當我準備恭賀他們的時候,我想,不如再一次送上我們當天為他們安排的大日子片段( 朝拍晚播) ,希望可以為他們在這個特別的日子裏,獻上一份歷久常新及真摰的回憶。

What you should expect from a Church or Outdoor Wedding Video?

從教堂或戶外婚禮視頻應有的期望

Okay… What will you expect when it comes to a video highlight of your wedding day?  A short documentary way? E.g. fetch the bride, wedding vows, traditional ceremony etc.  For a small city like Hong Kong, we now have more choices for holding an outdoor wedding as compared in the past. Thanks for the market opening up many years ago when we can have civil celebrants to hold wedding at our own preferred places.  And this also produce a lot of opportunities for our videographers to gain the skills and experience in catching all the best moments no matter how challenge it is in working outdoor.

當你出席一個婚禮時,通常在一對新人進場前多半有一個「特備節目」:觀看當日的錄像 (“朝拍晚播 ”)。而這些錄像最常見的內容主要是接新娘、一班姐妹團如何”糟質”新郎及一班兄弟、一對新人向長輩們敬茶以至在律師面前宣誓(如果這步驟是在日間進行的話)的過程等等。但其實在繁忙的大日子裡, 要拍錄 婚禮的精華,又何止以上所述的幾個程序呢? 以香港這片彈丸之地,空間有限。新人能揀選的婚禮場地,大多是酒樓或者酒店等等, 不過近年這情況已大有不同,不少商人瞄準這個市場,紛紛提供不同戶外婚禮場地給新人選擇。歐陸田園式的婚禮,就是很多新人夢寐以求,在大日子中能擁有的美麗時光。

 

What you will need to know for having a Church or Outdoor Wedding?

A Wedding Highlight is essentially your wedding video, so, what expectation you can set for your video team of the day?

 Talk about your inspirations
 How you want to remember you day (e.g. wedding vows, your photo shooting moments with guests/families)
 Indoor or Outdoor Voice recording according to the environment changes.
 Weather contingency plan
 Fast edit (yes, talking about the rundown you need to allow sufficient time for the editing)
 Pick a song

It’s truly a collection of the best moments of the day!

怎樣預備你的Wedding Video呢 ?

  • 嘗試參考一些其他的錄像, 跟錄像司說出你希望擁有的那些片段,以作一個概念的策劃。
  • 拍攝方面,你希望用哪一個形式/角度來錄取那幾個重要的環節? 例如:如果宣誓儀式, 親戚及朋友們在教堂準備迎接一對新人時的花絮。
  • 錄像亦應該要根據實際的環境而作出改變。 例如室內室外,在收音時應該要有什麼東西以作出適當的配合。 天氣、風向、現場收音等等……
  • 如果是室外天氣的轉變或許也要作出一個backup plan.
  • 朝拍晚播,當然亦都要給予錄像師足夠的時間去作出盡快的剪輯。 所以當天的行程表也需要作出適當的配合。
  • 剪輯後, 當然就要配上一首你倆覺得最適合的音樂吧。

以上全都,都對現場拍攝及收音,具有決定性的影响,所以每一個戶外婚禮錄像,絕對是一班攝錄師的心血,亦為新人帶來他們的 第一份結晶品!

If you choose to have a religious ceremony at church, it is also something different, unique, romantic, and blessed too. There are different things that you may need to consider though:
  • High ceiling can make for disturbing sound resonance;
  • Different churches may have their different rules as to restricted place for putting equipment and video shooting;
  • Time management is important too as there could be back-to-back wedding ceremonies especially on auspicious dates.

除了戶外,教堂婚禮對不少女孩子來說是超浪漫的又極具祝福性的。在教堂室內地點拍攝婚禮,對攝錄師又是否較為輕鬆呢?又不一定啊!因為拍攝教堂婚禮的當中難度,是鮮為人知的:
     室內教堂通常樓底高,說話時會容易有迴音
     不少教堂規則十分嚴謹,對所有器材擺放位置,都有嚴格的限制
     同樣地,教堂也有嚴格時間限制,所以沒有太多時間給予攝錄師作拍攝前的準備。

Working with couples all the time about what video package they should pick, I usually put The-One Movie into my recommendation list to my guests. I do love their customization, especially if you want a unique way to floor your guests.

Regardless what photographer/videography package you will need, in my opinion, I will suggest to add wedding videos into your package as this is one of the best ways to document every details of your big day. Trust me, when you see yourselves walking down the aisle, making your vows, and realizing there were actually many things happening at the same time at different corners, this is priceless. Be thrilled with your own Wedding Videos!

當我需要建議新人揀選攝錄師的時候, 我都會將The-One Movie放在我的建議之列。 我喜愛的就是他們的個人化及靈活/彈性的處理,將最美好的回憶,用最真摰 最美麗的方式拍攝下來。 他的團隊,都是拍檔多年的好兄弟。最重要是每一個細節、規例、程序、禮儀流程,都是非常熟悉的。我真的非常欣賞他們這個合拍團隊的精神。所以今次特意邀請他們給教堂或戶外舉行婚禮之準新人給予優惠。 希望可以為你們獻上一份歷久常新及真摰的回憶, 輕鬆地享受一生人一次的結婚大日子。
