While we can appreciate the trend towards highly personalized, and often unconventional wedding
ceremonies and wedding receptions, there’s a special place in our heart reserved for traditional
weddings. At VideoWedding Productions, our experience has shown us that even weddings that follow
tradition and customs to the T are still infused with a personality and joy that is unique to the
couple celebrating a marriage. When you call to book your wedding video shoot date, please let us
know if you’ll be conducting a traditional wedding or a wedding that incorporates certain customs.
Our goal is to capture the moments that are most important for you and your family to remember
and treasure for decades to come. We can pair you with a wedding videographer from our team that
is familiar with the ethnic, cultural or family traditions that will be incorporated into your
wedding ceremony or wedding reception. This familiarity helps produce a wedding video that more
accurately recreates your big day.
Traditional Wedding Venues
A Western traditional wedding usually means a ceremony held inside a church. While gorgeous and
breathtaking in person, churches can sometimes be challenging for wedding videographers and
photography artists, due to the lighting, limitations on flashes and other equipment and the
layout of the church. For traditional weddings in churches, we do our best to work with you,
the officiate and the church administrator in order to set up the best shots and capture the most
critical moments in your wedding ceremony. Our goal is to be unobtrusive and respectful, while
still capturing the details that are important for you to remember for a lifetime.
Ethnic and Cultural Weddings
Whether you’re a first generation or fifth generation immigrant, the wedding traditions observed
by your parents, grandparents and ancestors can infuse deep meaning and significance into your
own wedding ceremony. As active wedding video professionals working throughout urban areas in
Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa, we’ve shot numerous weddings that draw upon cultural
customs and ethnic traditions. We make sure that we get all of the important ceremonies, rituals
and traditions on tape by coordinating with you or a wedding planner. Whether you’re having an
Irish wedding, an Indian wedding, a Chinese wedding, an Arabic wedding or any other type of
wedding, we’ll be ready.
Traditional Wedding Receptions
Wedding reception events range from religious customs to long-running family or regional traditions.
Wedding receptions typically revolve around entertainment, such as music and dance, but can also
include traditions such as a dollar dance, a garter or bouquet toss, the first dance, introductions
to the room, send-offs, father/daughter dances, mother/son dances, best man’s toast, cake cutting
and the last dance. By letting us know which traditional wedding reception events you’ll be
including, we can assure that our wedding videographer stays long enough to get it all on film
so you can relive it over and over for years to come.
