Trend alert! Introducing VR wedding videos…
The latest wedding video trend is here, and it’s perfect for tech-lovers – move over drones, it’s time for VR wedding videos!
What if, instead of just watching your wedding video back, you could relive it? This fun new kind of wedding video means that you can simply put on a VR headset and relive the memories in full 360 degrees! You’ll be able to hear the day as well as see it, which means that it’s a great opportunity to listen back to the ceremony or speeches while being able to see everyone, including guests you might have missed on the day. It’ll be as though you’re back at the wedding!
Take a look at this amazing example:
We caught up with company VR Weddings, one of the first brands to offer this fabulous new service in the UK. “We have a couple of weddings under our belt now, and the reaction from the brides once they experience the footage is priceless,” says Gavin from VR Weddings. “They can keep this for the rest of their life, and enjoy virtually re-living her wedding day over and over, and share the experience with friends and family. It’s the closest you can possibly get to re-experiencing the best parts of the wedding day, and is a huge improvement on standard 2D video which current wedding videographers offer.”
So how exactly do you film a wedding in virtual reality?
“On the day it’s actually quite straight forward, the majority of the work we do is done afterwards in studio,” says Gavin. “The good thing is that we’re very discreet, as there’s no camera man present while the footage is being recorded. The camera man simply positions the camera, presses record and leaves it recording. In most cases, he will press record before people enter a room, meaning he wont be seen for the majority of the day.”
Usually VR Weddings recommends filming around six key moments from the day, including walking down the aisle (with the camera placed near the altar), leaving the ceremony (with the camera placed outside the door), entering the reception (with the camera placed in the room), the speeches (with the camera placed near the top table), cutting the cake (with the camera placed nearby) and the first dance (with the camera placed near the dance floor).
Their gold package includes a VR headset for you to watch your amazing footage back on, or you can opt for a basic package if you already own a compatible device. For more information and pricing, visit vrweddings.ie.
