Q. I wasn't going to get a videographer at my wedding, but a few of my family members keep mentioning it. What are the benefits to having one on the big day?

A. Amelia Jane Read says: Having a videographer at your wedding is an excellent addition to the day. Not only can they capture all the beautiful moments your photographer will, but they also capture movement and sound. Watching your wedding film is such an emotional experience, seeing all the best parts of your day carefully edited together with music, vows and speeches.

While a photographer documents the crucial moments that you'll want to frame; your videographer will be capturing the mood, atmosphere and things you might have otherwise missed. You'll get to relive your day and look back on the laughter, loving glances and celebrations.

As a photographer and videographer, I've seen first-hand how much lovebirds cherish their wedding films. Films complement photos; they work so well alongside each other to capture the essence of your big day and share it with friends and family for years to come.

Video is a great way to remember every word of your best man's speech, the reactions of your parents during the ceremony, your well-rehearsed first dance and all of the spontaneous, unplanned bits in-between. Confetti also looks spectacular on film, the more, the better!

Q. We would like a videographer for our day but not sure we want to spend the money. Can you tell us why it's important?

A. Wayne Connelly says: My friend didn't have a videographer, and it's her single biggest regret.

During the planning process, it can be very tempting to shoe-horn videography in after everything when there's little to no budget left. Videography may not seem like an exciting purchase as a wedding film isn't something that happens during your wedding.

In a nutshell, putting a little extra money to one side and hiring a good videographer is one of the most critical investments you'll make in your lifetime. A good videographer will take your fading memories and bring them back to life. The emotional glances, the sounds of people's voices, the anticipation, the kisses, the excitement, the powerful embraces between people that mean the world to you, the laughter and the silly dancing – these are the moments that are so easy to forget. We aim to capture all of the above while piecing your story together and telling it in a way that is timeless, powerful and emotive. It's something that you and your loved ones can relive, time and time again.

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it's that being with family and friends is the greatest love we have!
