Whether you’re into wedding videography or just an onlooker that easily falls prey to romantic wedding vows, we’ve rounded up 5 beautiful wedding films that we think you’ll like.
Let’s get to know each of the 5 videos below and find out why these wedding films make the cut this week!
Some wedding films have that “non-wedding” cinematic style that still captures the art and the essence of the wedding, and that is exactly what you can see in Katherine and Matt’s wedding film by Zephyr Productions.
The lovely couple’s wedding is held in a beautiful open garden at Dalywaters Rose Farm & Garden Chapel, a popular wedding venue located in Mornington Peninsula. The venue is surrounded by lush grassland and rose bushes, which complement the laid back and relaxed vibe of the wedding. The video starts with the bride’s brother giving his blessing to the couple while the aerial shots of the farm and snippets of the wedding preparations were shown. And then there are the couple’s vows; albeit delivered in a bit of humor, the sincerity of them surely didn’t go unnoticed. The video then ends with the couple posing in the middle of the grassland with the warm glow of the sunset in the background.
There are a lot of things that we love about this wedding film, but we narrow it down to three. Firstly, we certainly love how the film captures the laughter and humor of the ceremony without losing the sincerity and the romantic feel of the wedding. Every intricate detail of the happy vibe and laughter at the wedding and its intimacy are balanced well beautifully. Secondly, their wedding vows are one of the purest and happiest we’ve seen so far. While happy tears can make our hearts melt, the couple’s smiles and humor while giving their wedding vows are enough to make us feel the love and appreciation they have for each other. Lastly, we know you’d agree that there’s no better way to end a countryside wedding film than with the couple posing by the tilt-shift lens at sunset with the groom declaring his love to the bride.
A historic winery may not be a popular choice for most romantic wedding venues, but Clara and Vince’s wedding film by Infinity Films proves us wrong. The couple’s dream wedding is held at Seppeltsfield Winery, one of Australia’s oldest wineries.
The film begins with the wedding celebrant narrating the couple’s love story while showing the bride in an elegant bright red dress and the groom in a tailored suit. The dots of red flowers with the green background also add to the romantic vibe of the scene. This is then followed by the groom and the bride’s sincere and heartfelt wedding vows to each other while clips of them in a traditional tea ceremony are shown. Towards the end of the film, the bride’s engagement and wedding rings are focused before the groom’s declaration of love in the reception officially ends the video.
This Chinese-Malaysian – Australian wedding is distinctly catchy and unique as the cinematography emphasizes a balance of the wedding details that showcase the couple’s interracial backgrounds. We also can’t help but fall in love with the winery’s stunning aerial shots that create a dreamy and beautiful scene for the film. Furthermore, the lighting in both indoor and outdoor shots in the winery captures the sincerest of emotions along with the vows made. But what we love the most about this film is its opening and closing scene. The opening was made interesting with a snippet story of how they met and the closing with the husband’s gratitude and love.
The couple’s wedding took place in Brisbane at Roma Street Parkland. While this romantic scenery is perfect for an opening shot, Mel and Damien’s wedding film by Motion Reel Films takes a step away from the typical aerial shots of the wedding location. Instead, the film opens with the bride’s tear-jerking vow. It is then followed by shots of family and friends at the ceremony, showing a relaxing and joyful vibe. In the middle part of the film, short clips from the ceremony and reception are shown alternately at a perfect timing. The couple’s wedding reception is full of interesting games and passionate dancing. The film also perfectly captures Damien’s straightforward yet honest declaration of love to his bride with the audience’s applause and laughter in the background. The scene wherein Mel and Damien are looking at each other lovingly with the blurred background of yellow, red, and green scenery closes the film beautifully.
In wedding films, it is essential that the emotions showcased in the film are balanced well. That is exactly what we appreciate the most about Mel and Damien’s wedding film. The meaningful vibe given off by this wedding video is encapsulated in the wedding vows and the details that represent the couple’s love story. There are noteworthy shots of the meaningful details like the bride’s bouquet, the deceased loved one’s photo in the ceremony, their wedding cake, and of course, the adorable dogs. We love all these well-thought details. To balance the emotional scenes, the smiles and candid reactions of significant people in the couple’s lives are also highlighted. An outburst of a vibrant vibe is given off through zesty joyful reception moments. Lastly, making use of the natural and beautiful flower fields and bushes are a photo session staple that we always love in wedding films.
Ana and Paul’s wedding film by Westward Films is shot at The Willows, one of Australia’s classic and elegant wedding venues located in St. Kilda Road, Melbourne. The venue has a Victorian-inspired architecture while the building’s façade speaks nothing but elegance. The reception area is equally captivating which took place in the glass-walled conservatory decorated with lovely string lights.
Unlike other wedding films, this film takes a unique approach by using scenes of the couple’s wedding preparations and the accessories used for the wedding while a song is being played in the background. The middle part of the film consists of the wedding ceremony and reception highlights which are full of sweet, intimate, and joyful moments. The couple’s vows are sweet and simple. Albeit devoid of emotional or humorous wedding vows, the clips showing the couple’s candid moments are enough to make the film purely personal. The couple’s loving glances, sweet smiles and kisses, and the audience’s joyous applause show us how a happy and festive wedding should be celebrated. The ending records the dynamic moments on the dance floor before a daytime scene of the couple holding hands in the middle of the avenue. And just seconds before it ended, the scene shifted to the evening scene where a shot of the words “Mr & Mrs” in stunning lights are focused before the couple is seen kissing in front of the building’s façade.
This wedding film has so many subtle details that capture our attention. First, the pre-wedding shots create a sense of anticipation, leaving us curious and excited to watch the proper wedding ceremony itself. It’s like a wedding trailer that gives us hints of the kind of wedding we are about to watch without revealing the wedding highlights just yet. We are even more impressed with the shot in which the bride is standing near the window. The light from the outside enters the rooms, thus giving the videographer a nice silhouette of the bride’s wedding dress. We also like the meaningful edit of a promise of tomorrow through the daytime shot and then ended with the dreamy kiss at night. Lastly, the overall vibe of the film is outstanding. Family and friends’ excitement for the bride and groom’s new journey as a married couple is contagious. It reminds us that while a wedding is an emotional transition from being single to being married, we are also reminded that it’s a festive occasion that should be celebrated with happiness and laughter.
Kait and Lachlan’s wedding at The Riverstone Estate is captured and made into a film by Valley & Peak. This outdoor wedding has an overlooking view of the Yarra Valley in Coldstream, Victoria in Australia.
The beginning of the film is accompanied by a live music with shots change perfectly in synch with the music’s drum beats. The first part of the film is composed of the scenic views of the valley, the couple’s outdoor photo shoot sessions, the aerial view of the estate, and the bridesmaid and groomsmen’ speeches and blessings to the couple with the rhythmic beat still playing. When the main highlights of the film, which consists of the ceremony itself and the couple’s vows, are shown, the background music changes to a soothing and melodious one. The next part of the film is commenced with another change in music. As the audience congratulates the couple, the music also changes to a joyful one. In this part, scenes from the reception party are being shown. The food, the cutting of the cake, and scenes of family and friends freely talking to each other are shown. For the ending part, the couple is seen dancing sweetly and walking towards the sunset while the groom’s speech can be heard.
The choice of music used in the film perfectly complements the couple’s love for music. We also love the creative editing wherein the relaxed and lively vibe of the wedding is shown while the sincere messages from friends and the couple are heard in the background. But what impresses us the most is the fascinating photo session during sunset at the end of the film. The film has beautifully captured a stunning shot of the couple freely walking in the rolling valley and towards the horizon. It’s a cinematic and romantic way to end a wedding film.
Wedding films can make wedding moments unforgettable and last forever. It’s been a total joy to watch the couples’ love story unfold through these films. While one film is more romantic while the other has more cinematic editing, each still has its own unique take that makes it personal and beautiful.
