Filming Weddings in the Summer


Summer weddings are a dream for many couples. The warm weather, long days, and beautiful outdoor settings make for the perfect backdrop for one of the most important days of their lives. At Pixaplace Weddings, we understand the magic of summer weddings and are dedicated to capturing these moments with our expert wedding videography services.

Why Choose Summer for Your Wedding

Summer is one of the most popular seasons for weddings, and for good reason. The weather is generally more predictable, offering sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Extended daylight hours mean more time for outdoor ceremonies and receptions, and vibrant settings like beaches, gardens, and estates come alive with color, providing the perfect canvas for stunning wedding videos.

Challenges of Filming Summer Weddings

While summer offers many advantages, it also presents unique challenges for wedding videographers. Managing intense heat and bright sunlight is crucial to avoid washed-out footage and uncomfortable conditions for the couple and guests. Unexpected weather changes, like sudden rain showers, can disrupt plans. Additionally, summer is peak wedding season, so videographers often have packed schedules, requiring careful planning and coordination.

Pixaplace Weddings: Your All-Year-Round Videography Partner

At Pixaplace Weddings, we pride ourselves on being an all-year-round wedding filming business. Our expertise extends beyond summer, allowing us to capture the beauty of weddings in every season. We customize our filming techniques to match the unique atmosphere of each season, ensuring high-quality results no matter when your wedding takes place. Our professional team brings years of experience and a passion for storytelling to every project.

Preparing for a Summer Wedding Shoot

Preparation is key to a successful summer wedding shoot. Our team at Pixaplace Weddings starts by scouting the location to identify the best spots for filming. We take the time to understand the couple's vision and preferences, ensuring that we capture the moments that matter most. Equipment preparation, including checking cameras, drones, and lighting, is meticulously handled to avoid any hiccups on the big day.

Capturing the Essence of Summer Weddings

Summer weddings are all about leveraging natural light and incorporating the season's vibrant elements. We focus on capturing the warmth and joy of the day, emphasizing the bright colors, lush landscapes, and the overall atmosphere. From the golden hour glow during sunset to the clear blue skies, our goal is to create a cinematic experience that reflects the beauty and emotion of your summer wedding.

Key Moments to Film in Summer Weddings

Every wedding is unique, and we aim to capture all the key moments that make your day special. This includes pre-ceremony preparations, the ceremony itself, and post-ceremony celebrations. We also pay attention to unique summer wedding elements, such as outdoor games, sunset dances, and fireworks. These moments add a special touch to your wedding video, making it a timeless keepsake.

Best Locations for Summer Weddings

The South West UK is home to some of the most stunning wedding venues perfect for summer celebrations. From the picturesque beaches of Devon and Cornwall to the elegant gardens of Bristol and Somerset, each location offers a unique charm. Beach weddings provide a romantic and relaxed atmosphere, while garden and outdoor estate weddings offer a blend of nature and sophistication. Some popular venues include Thornbury Lodge, Berwick Lodge, and The Barn at Old Down Estate.

Utilising Technology in Summer Wedding Films

To capture the full beauty of your summer wedding, we utilize the latest technology. Drones are perfect for aerial shots, giving a breathtaking view of your venue and surroundings. High-definition cameras ensure every detail is captured with clarity, and advanced editing software allows us to enhance the footage, adding music and effects that complement your wedding theme.

Client Testimonials: Summer Wedding Success Stories

Our clients' satisfaction is our top priority, and nothing speaks louder than their testimonials. Will & Fern Evans shared, "He created a masterpiece and our wedding video will stay with us forever!" Melissa & Robert added, "Having a videographer really captures the moment, and I would recommend everyone to have one for their wedding and to use Sam especially." These stories reflect our commitment to creating beautiful and memorable wedding films.

Tips for Brides and Grooms for a Perfect Summer Wedding Video

To ensure your summer wedding video turns out perfect, here are some tips:

  • Choosing the Right Attire: Opt for light, breathable fabrics to stay comfortable in the heat.

  • Staying Hydrated and Comfortable: Keep water and snacks on hand to maintain energy levels.

  • Coordinating with the Videographer: Communicate your preferences and special requests to ensure they are captured on film.

Post-Production Magic

Once the filming is complete, our work continues in the editing room. We meticulously edit the footage to create a cinematic experience, adding music, slow-motion effects, and transitions that enhance the storytelling. The final product is a beautifully crafted wedding film that captures the essence of your special day, ready to be cherished for years to come.
