Q. Our big day is fast approaching, and we're thinking of booking a videographer, but we're not sure what to look for. Do you have any tips?

A. Justina Rudé says: When looking for a supplier, the most important thing to check is their style of videography. Try to look and ask yourself, do they portray each couple or their specific filming/editing style and how do they reveal wedding stories? Next, look at what their filming style is like. Is there a moving or static camera that shows natural colours or has a specific colour pallet like a filter been used on their films?

Check if the company includes sound bites from people or sound effects. For example, church bells, laughter, applause or waves on the beach? It's best to compare a few different styles and see which one you like the most.

It's also helpful to ask newlyweds how they felt on their wedding day with their videographer and if they liked the final result.

Q. How can we add seasonal touches to our wedding video?

A. Justina Rudé says: It will be represented in the film if you thoughtfully reflect the current season or your wedding theme in your decorations, venue, attire and more. These details help tell the story of the wedding, set the tone for the day and evoke the atmosphere. During a beach wedding, we'll capture the breeze, the sun and the joy of being outside. At a Christmas wedding, we'll highlight the crisp sparkle of the air and the cosiness and warmth of the venue.

You don't have to worry about putting seasonal touches into the video as we, the creatives, will take care of it.
