What is a cinematic wedding video?

Cinematic wedding video

A cinematic wedding video is a type of wedding video that is shot and edited in a way that makes it look like a movie. Cinematic wedding videos often have a more polished and professional look, with high-quality cameras, lighting, and sound. They may also use creative camera angles, special effects, and other techniques to create a more dramatic and emotionally engaging experience for the viewer. Typically, a cinematic wedding video will be more expensive to produce than a traditional wedding video, but many couples find that the added cost is worth it for the higher level of production quality and artistic storytelling.

Professionally Produced

A cinematic wedding video is a professionally produced and edited video that captures the key moments and emotions of a couple's wedding day. It is typically shot with high-quality cameras and lenses, and often includes sweeping aerial shots, slow motion footage, and other visual effects.

What the timeline looks like

The video typically begins with the bride getting ready for the big day, and may include footage of the groom preparing as well. As the ceremony begins, the camera captures the entrance of the bride and groom, the exchange of vows, and the first kiss.

Throughout the video, the couple's emotions are highlighted through close-up shots and sound bites from the ceremony and reception. The video may also include speeches from the best man, maid of honor, and other key members of the wedding party.

As the reception begins, the video captures the couple's first dance, the cutting of the cake, and other special moments. The video may also include footage of the couple's guests enjoying the music and dancing, as well as candid shots of the couple interacting with their loved ones.

Throughout the video, the couple's love story is highlighted through special effects and montages of their relationship. This may include footage of their first date, proposal, and other memorable moments leading up to their wedding day.

The video typically ends with the couple leaving the reception as newlyweds, with a final shot of the couple embracing or kissing. The video may also include a message from the couple thanking their loved ones for sharing in their special day.


A cinematic wedding video is not only a beautiful keepsake for the couple, but also a way for them to relive their special day for years to come. It is a unique and personal way to remember the love and joy of their wedding day.
