Newcastle Wedding Video Tips and Tricks

From avoiding the changeable weather to finding the perfect quiet spots, here’s everything you need to consider before your Newcastle wedding video shoot.

When you book a wedding video shoot, you’re probably thinking about the classic footage of your big day. From getting ready to walking down the aisle and the first dance, your wedding videographer is there to capture all of these memorable moments on film, so you can revisit them for years to come. But what about those moments in between? Those are often the times where you find quiet calm amidst the chaos of the day… let’s talk about how to make sure nothing is missed on your big day.

Weatherproofing

If you’re getting married in the North East, then you’ll know that the weather can be temperamental. Even if it’s peak summer, you risk a wash-out. So, make sure you consider this when planning your big day, and speak to your wedding videographer about their plans if the weather changes. 

As a Newcastle wedding videographer, I know all too well the complexities of shooting in the changing light conditions brought on by the British weather. Don’t be disheartened if it does rain on your wedding day. This can often make for some incredibly breathtaking and dramatic shots, especially if you are having a coastal or countryside wedding.

You can also weatherproof your wedding by making sure the indoor space has sufficient capacity for every guest. You might even want to consider preparing a change of clothes for the evening just in case, particularly if your ceremony is outside. 

Take advantage of our lighting

Look, while I know that the dull weather can put a dampener on any day, it’s important to remember the good thing about the North East’s climate – mainly that we have some of the most spectacular sunrise and sunset opportunities available anywhere. During both summer and winter, the North East has always attracted photographers and videographers who want to capture the ‘golden hours’ available twice a day – usually at any of our wonderful coastline areas. 

As a wedding videographer, I’m well versed in understanding our region’s lighting. If you’re getting married near the coast or even inland, we can try to make the most of sunrises or sunsets to get some beautiful lighting and serene moments of beauty that make us all take a break and appreciate the region for what it is. 

Newcastle Quayside

Avoiding crowds

This is particularly important if you are getting married in the city centre. The last thing you want when you receive your wedding film is to see strangers in the background. Of course, it’s impossible to ensure you won’t capture the faces of passers-by – especially if you are having a ceremony on the famous Newcastle Quayside or at the Civic Centre. 

Whether you’re getting married by the sea, in the city or in the countryside, there are some beautiful places you can visit after the ceremony and before the evening begins to capture some footage.

Honouring ‘The Toon’

It doesn’t matter if you’re born and bred here or if you moved here later in life, I’m sure we can all agree on one thing: this city is pretty special. Many happy couples will look to honour our wonderful city as part of their wedding, and your wedding videographer can certainly help with this.

From rolling shots of the Quayside to a kiss on Tynemouth Longsands, or even a stroll through Jesmond Dene, whatever your wedding calls for, your videographer will provide a choice of locations that encapsulate that famous Geordie hospitality on film. 

Choosing the right videographer

I may be a little biased here, but it’s vital that you choose a videographer who shares your vision for your big day. Want to know a little more about me? Visit my About page or head to my Wedding page to watch previous wedding videos captured across Newcastle and the surrounding areas.
