The decision to have a wedding at home is a difficult one, and there are many reasons why a couple could choose to have their ceremony and reception at home. People often assume that at-home weddings are cheap or lack elegance. This isn’t necessarily the case.
There are many ways to increase the glam factor from the comfort of your own home! You’ll also appreciate the additional control that comes with pulling off an at-home wedding.
However, when it comes to videography, a residential location comes with its own set of challenges. Luckily, they can be easily overcome. Here are some tips to consider:
1. Capture the Diverseness of the Space
As you watch Deanna and Nathan’s wedding video, you’ll have a little trouble guessing that it’s an at-home wedding. Why? Because the diverseness of the space has been beautifully captured. Instead of fixating on one space, the videographer has captured multiple elements.
This is exactly what you should do. Make sure each frame of the video showcases something new. In this case, the wedding video captures everything from the rustic serenity of the ceremony to the excitement of the bridesmaids.
As long as your wedding video is kaleidoscopic, you don’t have to worry about the fact that it’s happening at home. It’ll turn out just as exciting, beautiful, and memorable!
2. Go the Extra Mile to Avoid a Dull Moment
Since you’ll be having your wedding at home, you can’t afford to have a dull moment. If the wedding were at a luxe resort, there would’ve been a lot happening by default. For an at-home wedding, you shoulder the responsibility of stepping up to the plate.
Make sure you go the extra mile to plan a fun day. If you check out Denna and Nathan’s wedding video again, you’ll notice that there’s a lot happening. That’s exactly what makes the video so fun to watch!
From the bride arriving in a carriage to the cake cutting ceremony doubling as a gender reveal party, there are so many exciting things planned. These activities will make your at-home wedding video so much more memorable, exciting, and beautiful.
3. Add a Touch of Timelessness to the Video
Classic poses work exceptionally well in the bride/bridegroom’s own home. While capturing candid moments is important, striking tried-and-tested poses is also a great way to add a touch of timelessness to the day.
As you pose for a solo shot in front of your entryway, the video will reflect your growth over the years. You’ll manage to fuse one of the most important rites of passage—your wedding—with countless others that occurred right in front of your entry doors.
You took your first steps here. You posed for your first day of school. You smiled for cheesy prom pictures with your date. You did it all! And now you’re adding another beautiful memory to the list.
As you strike classic poses, you’ll manage to capture the essence of your home, upbringing, growth, and maturity—all in one beautiful video.
