I recently had the pleasure of filming Nicola and Shaun’s Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh wedding reception. Amazing live band ‘Dakota’ provided the evening entertainment.
Below you can watch Dakota performing live. They’re performing Snow Patrol hit ‘Chasing Cars’ during this short video. A great band well worth consideration for your wedding reception.
I filmed this video at Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh using two high definition video cameras. One camera was used to film Dakota. The second camera filmed the newly-weds dancing. The second camera was mounted on a Steadicam stabiliser rig. This enabled smooth filming as I walked around the edge of the dance floor. The result is a wonderfully cinematic feel to the video. A typical wedding video would be filmed from one spot at the side of the dance floor. Using a Steadicam provides stable mobility and creates a much better and more interesting wedding film.
I can also use the Steadicam when filming at various points throughout your wedding film. I often use the Steadicam to film:
- Bridal Party arrivals at the wedding venue
- Wedding recessional (newly-weds walking down the aisle)
- Grand entrance to the wedding breakfast
- First few wedding dances in the evening
The Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh is a wonderful wedding venue right in the centre of Edinburgh. The RCPE features beautiful Georgian and Victorian rooms. The New Library, Great Hall and Cullen Suite all provide lots of space for music and entertainment. The magnificent grand entrance hallway leads up to the historic rooms where I film your wedding or reception.
The video shown here was recorded in the Great Hall of the Royal College Of Physicians Edinburgh.
