When creating your perfect wedding film, start by selecting music you love! Making sure that the tunes reflect both your and your partner's tastes will make watching it back even more enjoyable. But bear in mind - popular songs likely won't be usable due to copyright laws so don’t stress if these aren’t an option for you; we can help find similar styles of music with our subscription services licensed legally just for YOU.
Your wedding film should reflect your wedding day itself! No doubt you've spent time already choosing the perfect entrance and first dance song, choosing your wedding video songs is just as important! Consider the atmosphere you want to create when selecting music! Make sure you choose something that truly reflects the celebration. Is it going to be a relaxed and intimate affair? Opt for mellow tunes to capture those special moments. For an elegant soiree, classical pieces are perfect for creating an unforgettable atmosphere of sophistication.
Music has the power to really change the whole feel of your wedding video. When you’re picking out tracks, you might want to consider the different emotions you want to be conveyed throughout your big day and how music can play a part in emphasising those moments! Consider musical pieces with calm relaxed vibes for your getting ready shots, gentle emotive vibes for your ceremony and more upbeat selections during the evening dancing - all of it should seamlessly lead up to that powerful finale. We ask our couples to pick 3-4 songs which when listened to together create build, coming together perfectly.
Your wedding videographer will be more than happy to help you when it comes to music selection for the film - they’re experienced and know what will work best in creating a visually stunning masterpiece. If you need recommendations for the genres of music we usually use, artists we love or if you have personal music choices for us to use already, let's discuss them together! Or if it suits you better, sit back and trust our expertise –we know just what tunes are going to give your special day an extra sparkle!
When it comes to thinking about the songs for your wedding film, if you're choosing a track with lyrics it's worth taking another listen and making sure the lyrics also suit the vibe you want. If you want to have a wedding film where the audio from parts of your ceremony and speeches is overlaid then it's a good idea to choose an instrumental selection of songs to be used. Lyrics are a great way to add another depth to your wedding film especially if you want to keep your vows/speeches private and not include their audio over the top.
Sometimes the best songs are hidden in genres you might not usually sit listening to. Our favourite songs for wedding videos are often found in the categories ‘instrumental’ ‘acoustic’ ‘adventure’ ‘road trip’ ‘nature’ ‘epic’. See what you think, and if in doubt give your wedding videographer a list of choices and let them pick what works best when they edit your wedding video. When our couples provide us with a list of their favourite songs we always appreciate more choice than less as it gives us more flexibility when editing together your wedding video.
We aren’t suggesting you choose the infamous (extremely annoying!) song from Frozen, more that if you’re finding choosing your wedding video songs overwhelming then by all means ask your wedding videographer to go ahead and choose songs for you. When couples are struggling we like to point them first to our favourite categories of music, then to our playlist of songs we know work well for wedding videos, or we will select original audio for you based on your own preferences. The choice (or lack of it) is entirely yours!
Choosing the right music for your wedding film is an important part of creating a memorable and meaningful film, which can have a huge impact on your wedding videos.
