Why a Wedding Video is a Necessity, Not a Luxury in 2023 and Beyond

Adam Ewbank


There’s nothing more satisfying than looking back on your wedding day and remembering the good times you had. Weddings are a time to celebrate, but they’re also a time to reflect on the love you share with your partner. 

While photos can help you remember certain moments, they don’t provide an intimate look into what happened throughout the entire day. A wedding video offers that opportunity: it allows you to relive key points of your big day in detail and create memories that will last forever!

Here is why adding wedding videography should be an essential part of your wedding day vendor list:

A Lifelong Legacy in Video 

Wedding videos are a way to remember your wedding day. When you’re old and gray, you can watch your video over and over again, reliving the memories of that special day. You can also share it with friends and family who weren’t able to attend the wedding or live far away from where it took place.

If you’re thinking about having kids or already have them, it’s important to keep in mind that they will one day want to know what their parents were like when they were younger. Wedding videography is a great way for them to get an idea of how much fun their parents had on their wedding day! In addition, if you ever decide to show off your wedding photos or videos at family gatherings (or even just among friends), this can be a great way for everyone involved in the festivities–from the bride and groom all the way down through every guest–to feel like part of something special.

Watching Live Memories, You Might Have Missed Otherwise

Weddings have a lot of moving parts. There are the bride and groom, their families, and all of their friends. The venue will be filled with people who want to celebrate with you on your big day – and that’s before you even get started partying.

It can be difficult to keep track of everything that’s happening when there are so many people involved in one event. You can’t possibly be everywhere at once; that’s why wedding videography is such an essential part of your wedding day strategy. A good videographer should document every important moment from beginning to end so that nothing gets missed or forgotten later on down the road.

Plus, if there are any funny moments or special moments that happen throughout the day (like if someone drops their drink), they’ll be captured on camera so you can share these funny stories for years to come. 

Telling Your Love Story 

You have a unique and beautiful love story to tell, and it’s important that you have the opportunity to share it. You can do this through video by capturing the moments that are most meaningful to you and your partner, as well as those who have been with you on this journey thus far. 

Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life, so why not make sure it’s documented in a way that is true and organic to you and your story as a whole? A lot has changed since wedding videos were first introduced–they’re no longer just used for keepsake purposes or shown at family gatherings; they’ve become an integral part of telling our stories through film.

Wedding Videos Aren’t a Last Minute Add On or a Luxury

You may be thinking, “wedding videos are not a luxury but an essential part of the wedding.” And you’d be right. Wedding videography is not just a last-minute add-on or luxury but rather an item that couples should put at a higher priority than most people do. Wedding videos can be used for many things later in life, including preserving memories and reliving moments from your special day.

Imagine years down the road listening to the laughter of loved ones who have since passed, hearing the voices of small children long grownup, and seeing friends and family enjoying one another’s company that you haven’t seen in years – what is worth more than that? 

How Ewbank Films Helps Capture Your Unique Love Story 

We want to tell your story with compassion, sensitivity, and style. Our goal is to produce a video that makes you look back at your wedding day and smile at the joy you shared without being cheesy or corny.

We understand that there are moments throughout your big day that are important not just for themselves but also because they help tell a bigger story about who you are as a couple–and how far you’ve come together on this journey so far. Our goal is always to make sure those moments shine through in our videos, so when people watch them years later, they can still see the love between two people who have been through so much together already by this point in time (and hopefully many more years after!).

As the bride and groom, you are the stars of your wedding day. You may be a little nervous about being filmed, but we promise that we will make sure that you feel comfortable throughout the entire process. We believe that the best way to tell your story is by filming it as naturally as possible, allowing natural moments and conversations to emerge organically during the celebration of your wedding day.

We have years of experience with weddings and have worked with many different couples over their years in business. They know what to do on the big day and can work around your timeline so that nothing gets missed!

We work with each couple individually to find out what they want from their wedding videos so they can be sure they get exactly what they’re looking for when it comes time to edit their film—and end up with a film that’s a treasure for years to come!
