Brides On Film

Mention having a wedding film done to anyone married over ten years (actually, like, five) and wait for the cringe. Because wedding films used to be quite a different thing? horribly lit recordings of the most embarrassing moments of the day, generally focusing on a speech-giving uncle’s jowels or a jiving auntie’s thigh dimples, far too closely, for far too long.

But now, oh now, it’s a different story. They’re swoony, creatively cinematic love stories, capturing only the most beautiful moments, magic and all. It’s a trend that’s growing, internationally, and – unsurprisingly, considering how exciting the industry here is, right now – tuning into some stellar examples at home, too.

Up there with the best of them is Dublin company Big Day Films, a creatively-inspired outfit that approaches weddings from a cinematic standpoint, rather than the old documentary style. They work with a number of cinematographers, covering styles from classic, to retro, to vintage (we must say, we’re rather partial to vintage option).

?It’s more important to capture the atmosphere and emotions of the day, rather than simply documenting everything that happens. It’s such a unique occasion and to be around all that emotion is a powerful thing. Whether you’re filming the bride and groom from a distance or you’re right up close, you always end up capturing something special that they’ll want to watch for the rest of their lives.? – Richard and Joseph, Big Day Films

I wasn’t going to have one at all, until I came across the likes of these guys and found myself sobbing, loudly, at my desk. It’s a romantic comedy, only real, and you’re the star! Heck yes, I’m having one.
