Top Wedding Videography Trends in 2021
Like everything else in the world, even wedding videography has trends of its own, and it’s no surprise that there are some in 2021 that are becoming prominent. There are some trends that have grown from previous trends, and others that stem from the many different videography and special effects techniques, but all have one thing in common. They are popular choices. Why? Because they’re attractive and can be used for any video or film, as long as they’re done properly. So, from short wedding videos to fast deliveries, here are a few of the top wedding videography trends in 2021.
Caught On Camera
It might not always be sudden and unexpected, and sometimes it can be very subtle, you’d need to look for it, but there is always drama at a wedding, whether it’s a fight between the bride or groom with a guest, the wrong name said in a speech, or that one person who got so drunk they fell over and “accidentally” exposed another guest. Regardless of the incident, there’s always going to be one, and they’re definitely going to be caught on camera.
These moments, although unexpected and can sometimes be a trigger for a bigger drama, can also be comedic and fun, when put into a wedding video. Not all drama has to be intense and serious, sometimes, it can be a slip of the tongue (or foot) and can actually make people laugh. So why not add it to your wedding video? That one drunk uncle storming down the aisle could be a great feature you’d laugh at with everyone you watch your wedding video with.

Make It Short
This trend is becoming more and more popular, with social media and the internet introducing time limits for videos and reels. In the digital age, people can upload fast montages of clips to highlight what they’re doing. Quick snaps of videos to the beat of music are fast becoming a trend on TikTok, so why not make it a part of your wedding video, or even the wedding video itself. No one has time to sit through an hour-long video anymore, so why make one?
Shaving down the time of your wedding video to that of a short film, which usually lasts about 10 minutes, will give you all the highlights you need. You don’t need to watch the bride and groom greet all their guests. You don’t need the full ceremony, or all the picture taking. Using the highlights of the wedding should be enough for your video, and should be something that everyone can watch, without having to break out the popcorn.
A Modern Retro Flair
Over the last few decades, color has become one of the most important aspects of video and film. However, something must be said about the traditional black and white footage of the early days of film. They bring about that sense of nostalgia and sentimentality and can be a great addition to your wedding video. By all means, shoot in color, and bring out the vibrancy of the day with it, but for some couples, it might be a good idea to have a black and white option, if it works with the style of your wedding.
After all, there might be some wedding themes that allow for that flickering and grainy look or even the home video style. With recent developments for phone cameras, you’ll get professional-quality videos, but it is the shaky and pixelated look of old home videos that bring out that nostalgia as well. So, adding that retro flair can give your wedding videos life and character.
Watch Out For That Drone
Technology hasn’t left video technology behind. In fact, it’s brought it up a level. This is especially true with Go-Pro cameras and Drones. By using drones to film your wedding, it’ll make the special day even more epic. With the wide and sweeping vistas of the place surrounding the wedding, it’ll feel like it was a big day, a day that you’ll never forget.
Make It Quick
Once again, with technology constantly evolving, so too is the video and film industry, and that means editing a video can be done much more quickly. In fact, it could even be completely edited the next day, and if you are in a hurry, and you want to watch the video on your honeymoon, then you can be sure that you’ll get it, as long as you let your videographer, or editor, know.
Not only that, you could even have your video edited on the same day. You’ll have to sit down with the videographer and editor, to see what they’re doing and what you’d like to add or remove, but what’s a little less sleep, if you get the highlights of the best day of your life immediately? This may be an expensive option, but if it means you can enjoy the forgotten moments, at least it’s worth it.
Choose Your Trend
Of course, there are so many trends out there, but one will fit you. After all, you don’t need to stick with the classics, or the most popular, to get the right wedding video for you. Sometimes, all it takes is one amazing example, and you’re already sold on the style, genre, and look of your wedding video.
