We all know weddings can be expensive. The venue, the catering, the staff, the rings, the dresses, the suits…not to mention the cost of hiring a professional photographer and videographer. If you don’t have the budget for the latter, here’s how you can get an ultra-personal, 4K-HD wedding video at a fraction of the cost.

Do you and your fiancé dream of a videographer to document your big day in beautiful detail? We all know they don’t come cheap, with the average wedding videographer costing approximately £2,000.

Therefore, for many, a wedding video is something they have to sacrifice when they are trying to stick to a budget.

Traditional wedding videographers usually also come as a team, meaning a number of strangers present at your wedding, all getting in the way of you relaxing and celebrating with your loved ones. But now, thanks to Edit Your Wedding, there’s another way to obtain your own, personal video.

How to Get A Personal Wedding Video For Less

Why should you film your own wedding video? With Edit Your Wedding, a DIY videography service, you’ll be able to have your own unique and personal wedding videos at a fraction of the regular price – filmed by your very own friends and family.

Edit Your Wedding provide a professional quality edit set to music of your choice, enabling you and your loved ones to relive the big day over and over again.

An Affordable Option

For as little as £399, Edit Your Wedding will provide you with the very latest in stabilised, handheld, camera technology: the Osmo Pocket 4K.

And, don’t worry if you and your guests are technophobes – the cameras are designed to be incredibly easy to use! No need to fiddle about with zoom or focus; the cameras do it all for you. All you have to do is choose how many cameras you require, select several trustworthy friends, and ask them to be your very own Steven Spielberg for the day!

Then, simply return the cameras to Edit Your Wedding using the special return delivery box, and their editors will take care of the rest. Once the editing team have worked their magic, they will provide you with a link to the fully edited film, as well as a shorter highlights reel, both of which can be easily downloaded from their website.

Edit Your Wedding is also a popular choice for destination weddings like the below, as you can take the cameras with you abroad.

How do the Cameras Work?

The Osmo Pocket 4K cameras shoot high resolution, professional quality footage, but are small enough to fit in your pocket or handbag. They are discreet and have hours of storage, meaning your guests can capture fabulous footage of the drinks reception, ceremony, wedding breakfast, and party, without worrying about the amount of memory required.

The cameras also use a 3-axis stabilisation gimble, meaning totally smooth footage regardless of how much Prosecco has been drunk!

What’s more, as well as being significantly cheaper than a traditional videographer, the DIY nature of the filming process means no rogue camera operators at your wedding, demanding to stand in the right spot in order to get the right angle or light!
