Set apart from today’s trend, Guia and Gerard’s wedding is one to be celebrated privately. Those who attended the wedding witnessed a chapter softly unfolding – calm and fitting – into one special turning point for the couple. Just perfect, I would say, for a bride and groom whose aim is to keep their private life as personal and exclusive as possible. Each moment during the wedding is as effortless as the next one. Even the wedding song “Cherish” sounded like the couple wrote it themselves.
The bride walks down the aisle with confidence and lovingly smiled at her groom who is waiting patiently. Here is a couple who decided to grow old together, to live with unbroken commitment to love and to care about each other deeply. Most importantly, to cherish each moment as if it was the first and knowing it will be the last too.
Best wishes to Guia and Gerard.
Grace and Paul’s union is an expression of worship, celebration, and love. The whole event reflected joy, community, respect, and dignity which mirrors every Christian wedding ceremony. Each rite offered solemn moments of love and understanding between the couple. During the wedding, you can see Grace and Paul taking time to praise and recognize God in every turn.
The love between them is as powerful as their faith - grateful, hopeful and abiding. When Paul was asked how much he loves Grace, words did not seem enough to describe how much or for when his love for Grace actually ends. Overjoyed, the teary eyed bride assured to love Paul deeply until the very end.
Having the support and involvement of parents in the ceremony brings a special blessing to the couple and also expresses two families united as one. Friends and relatives took witness to welcome our newest Christian couple. We couldn’t count the faces who laughed, cried and cheered for Grace and Paul as I am sure no one could. Best wishes to Grace and Paul.
Sentences are short and words are few to describe the love story of Kat and Wynx. Their love affair seems like the perfect boy-meets-girl type of romance except it’s not all that perfect. The relationship has gone through a series of best and worst moments. Neither any of those moments were without a purpose nor kept them apart from each other. Alongside discovering themselves, they discovered they each cannot make it without the other.
You can see Kat cheering for Wynx, supporting him from start to finish, motivating, inspiring and lovingly holding his hands during quite times. Wynx, on the other hand, has always been the big man; comforting, understanding, a thorough-but-sensitive-critic to Kat, and her protective wall against all things which are harmful.
The wedding day celebrates the couple’s vow of loving each other despite all differences. You see, differences do not matter. Not to Kat and Wynx. They are perfect for each other and we all know it.
Best wishes to the beautiful bride and groom. We love you
TJ and Grace put their wedding vows in writing. These vows were set in motion by celebrating a huge milestone. An event rife with joyous faces, heartfelt wishes and overwhelming love from family, friends and loved ones. It also turned out to be an ideal wedding shoot for a videographer. The wedding venue made an excellent backdrop and the day couldn’t be more perfect for exchanging these vows. We picked out a part of their vows, here goes;
Grace to TJ:
I’ll always be proud to be your companion, you best friend, your wife and your Grace.
I vow to always take care of you, to listen and talk to each other,
to share your happiness and be your strength through tough times.
I vow to love you unconditionally and be forever yours no matter what.
TJ to Grace:
People say that love is a choice… It’s a choice for companionship. A companionship that should stand the test, not of time but of life and of reality…should hold true during difficult moments and one that should not be abandoned in an instant.
As for when I’ve found you, I knew that time would lead us to this and I choose you – now, tomorrow, and the days after. No matter what.
In the video, TJ and Grace smiled brightly, radiant and content knowing they have found each other to love and to hold. The wedding is just a part of their grand plan. A lifetime of loving and being there for each other no matter what. A love built to last.
Today, Reana has come of age. The youngest among three daughters, Reana grew up to be a loving sister, sharing laughter and impossible-to-forget-memories with friends, a talented and graceful ballerina. Most of all, she has grown up to be a daughter any parent would be so proud of having.
Not too long ago, your Mom and Dad tickled your toes, wiped your chocolate covered face, carried you on their shoulders, made sure they’re beside you when your fever breaks, and kept you safe and warm.
They also showed you the stars and taught you how to reach them.
Happy birthday, Reana! We wish you a life full of surprises, enough challenges to make you even stronger and dreams strewn like stars in the night. May you reach the brightest of your stars.
Picture this: Your bride looking radiant in front of you, all your loved ones, closest friends and family (probably a few hundred of them) come to witness and celebrate your wedding. Tying the knot will not be as heartfelt without the vow to go along with and is usually the highlight of every wedding ceremony there is. It is customary for the groom (read: you) to be the first to say your speech. With your hand holding hers and the other one holding a microphone, what will you say?
I want to thank the Lord for the love and blessings. Today is the happiest day of my life. Thank you everyone here for coming. I want to thank my parents for bringing me up, and I also want to thank my bride’s parents for having brought up such a beautiful and most wonderful person I know. To my bride, I promise to love you forever.
Too familiar? We’ve all heard the same speech in the past.
As a wedding videographer, I have heard too many vows and wedding speeches to know which ones exactly have a lasting impression. Wedding vows which are not just touching but also memorable, funny and highly personalized; the types which also receive the most cheers from the audience. Here are 5 easy steps on writing your own wedding speech.
Those who are present on your wedding are actually the people who matter and made a difference at some point in your life. They deserve to be acknowledged and appreciated. Take your time, don’t haste. Avoid generalization such as “To ALL of you who have been with me all these years” or “Thank you ALL for the love and support shown”. They have names so mention them. Recognize their value in your life which led to this milestone. For instance, “To Jay, who has shared time and effort listening to my troubles over pints after pints of draft beer. To Mom who supported my every decision and Dad for believing I can make it.” Surely, there are many in the list you want to acknowledge. Just make sure to prioritize and keep your message personal. We’ve seen so many faces lit up when their names are mentioned during wedding speeches. Some are even bursting into tears, laughing, clapping, or smiling approvingly. These footages make up sensational wedding videos.
Question and Answer
Questions are immensely helpful to promote creativity. Answering them takes you to another level which is often dreamy and wild. Find sometime alone with pen and paper handy and start answering these questions;
- What is the single greatest thing about the person you are going to marry?
- When did you know that you were in love/ know that this person was the one you wanted to marry?
- What does marriage mean to you? Why do you want to be a married person?
- What is the most important thing you want to promise to your partner? What is the promise you most want to hear from them? (For instance, it might be really important to promise that you will always respect them.)
- What will change about your relationship once you are married? What will stay the same?
- What is your most favorite memory of your partner?
You may just choose to answer a few questions and weave over it.
Keep it short and sweet
Avoid writing a whole essay. A few paragraphs will do. It’s just 3 – 5 minutes speech. Don’t tell everyone at your wedding how loud she snores or how she chooses which underwear to wear. You may add a few of her quirks but keep it appropriate, tactful, sensitive and sincere.
Put it down in writing
It will be best to prepare your speech in advance. Note key words or points you want to say. Don’t memorize. You might be busy with hundreds of little things on your wedding day and memory may not come as handy. Pass an extra copy of your speech to your best man in case you forget yours (trust me, it happens).
Once you’ve worked out your final version, practice reading it aloud. Stand in front of a mirror and speak. Practice till you become comfortable speaking. You may need a friend or two to provide feedback on your speech. However, keep in mind that the focus of your speech is to declare your love in front of the people at your wedding. They came for you. Learn to relax, say your piece, be sincere and honest and words will flow naturally.

It takes a bit of thought and effort to produce a fine wedding film. Shooting onsite wedding video and enhancing footages require both skill and experience. These are two stages in wedding filmmaking all too different from each other yet of equal significance. Let’s focus on after effects or post processing technique. One of the many important qualities of a professional Filipino wedding videographer is to work on color grading. The point is to use color grading to not only adjust or even out shots, but also to manage lighting and color changes.
This brings us to two main objectives of color grading: correcting color and lighting. Visual atmosphere is created this way. After effects are done by wedding videographers to enhance the overall look and feel of the whole wedding footage.
Many factors affect lighting and this includes, but not limited to, weather, venue, aperture, ISO, and filters among others. It cannot be safely assumed or expected that videographers have complete control of lighting during the event itself. Footages may contain color contrasts which can be adjusted or suppressed. The wedding videographer’s job is to make sure the color grade is consistent all throughout the video.
While wedding filmmakers may be equipped with gadgets and lighting equipment at the minimum level, they still need to employ color grading or color adjustment software tools for the production of the final video. In the past, filmmakers used individual colored lamps targeted to suppress certain colors and also to produce good contrast. Present-day technology paves way for a variety of color grading tools and implementation. Some are built in, most are third party software but free, and some have cost yet minimal expense.
Color grading is not as simple as auto balance or clicking a preset function in a grading tool. It requires skill to understand some very basic components in filmmaking and conceptualizing the whole wedding video. This relates to sound video editing skills and a whole lot to learn in color grading.
The collection of footages from pre and post wedding video may have good and bad shots. A Filipino wedding videographer’s role is to work on these videos applying various techniques such as color grading to produce a final output – a valuable memory of the wedding that was!
