Videographer yes or no? Emotional Wedding Slideshows are a solution

Videographer yes or no? Emotional Wedding Slideshows are a solution

Every Memtell Wedding Card links to a unique digital video message made by the couple. This is what makes Memtell cards so personal and special for guests. But, there is also a written message in the card, for people who might not be so tech-savvy. In the following article we’ll be focussing on how you can create an amazing wedding video with Memtell.

Having a videographer at your wedding seems to be the latest trend, and we can see why. Having a personal, emotional video of your wedding day is a once in a lifetime opportunity. However, the catch is that hiring a videographer as well as a photographer will be double the cost. With Memtell, you can still have the sentimental aspect of a video without doubling the cost, which you and your guests can keep forever! The process of creating a wedding video with Memtell is simple and inexpensive and the result is just as emotional as a professionally shot wedding video.


Save Money

If your wedding budget is something you’re conscious of, you have most likely already considered the ways you can cut costs. A wedding photographer, on average, costs about £1,800. In many areas of the UK, a wedding videographer is actually more expensive, averaging about £2,000. For many people, this might be a cost that you just can’t justify, even though you really want an emotional wedding video. Well, this is where Memtell has the perfect solution. You can use our free Memtell App and easily upload your favourite wedding photographs after the wedding to put together a beautiful slideshow, which can include images of your choice, an intro video, plus music and voice overs. This way, you can also make the most of your photography, allowing you the perfect opportunity to show off your amazing wedding pictures and giving you more value for your money. You also have more control over what is in your wedding video, in comparison to a video that is entirely shot and edited by your videographer.


Keep the Sentimental Value

The most important purpose of your wedding video is to capture the raw emotion and romance of your special day. This may be your reason alone for wanting to hire a videographer. But rest assured, you can still keep the same sentimental value with the Memtell App slideshow feature by choosing music that has meaning to you and your partner. In fact, you can create even more of a goosebump effect by putting voice overs into your wedding video, which can be heartfelt messages to your guests, explainer prompts, or whatever else you want to capture as a memory. In many ways, this is more valuable because you and your partner can tell a story together, and you can involve others far more by talking about them. In the long run, your video on the Memtell App will act as a keepsake that you and your guests can save on the Memtell App or download to hold onto forever. Think of it as a digital album of Polaroids which holds some of the best memories of a lifetime; you can go back to reminisce any time you are missing your wedding.


Share your Wedding Memories

You’ll want to share your wedding memories in a simple and effective way that people will actually engage with. If you hire a videographer and have them create a wedding video, you then have fairly limited options as to how you will share this. You can upload it to social media, send it around, and of course show people in person, but none of these options will really stick with people. Ultimately, your video will either get pushed down in an endlessly updated social feed, or get lost in an inbox of hundreds of messages. The Memtell solution is our Wedding Thank You Cards, in which guests will receive a physical keepsake with a QR code linking to your video slideshow in 3D. Some guests may keep your card on the shelf or fridge which makes it super easy to return to time and time again to watch the video and reminisce. Guests can download your video from the card and save it or share it with others or on social media.

Not only are the Memtell Wedding Thank You Cards a fun and surprising way to share your video with friends and family, but you can also link your video to your photo gallery website for guests to see all your wedding photos in one place.

Of course there is also the option to have a videographer and create a professional wedding video which could even be shared together with a Memtell Wedding Thank You Card. Creating your own unique wedding slideshow with photos is just our most cost effective solution, and the perfect way to WOW your guests using your wedding photos. So, if you want your friends and family to remember your special day forever, take a look at our stunning wedding thank you cards and start creating your slideshow video with our free Memtell App to link with your card.
