I want a free wedding video....

So many times we see these posts - usually along the lines of "I have no money left over but I really want a video"
The wedding is (or should be) the biggest (or certainly one of the biggest) days of our lives - so why leave it to chance?
Would you have a wedding without a cake for instance? Or flowers? Or a posh frock? No - so why skimp on the one thing that'll preserve the day forever - long after the cake is eaten, the flowers have wilted and the frock has gone off to the charity shop..
Now you could have your Uncle Ernie film it - but sod's law says he'll be stuck at the back of the church looking over peoples shoulders and miss the ceremony completely. Or you won't be able to hear the vows because his hand is accidentally covering the microphone. Or he'll get too pissed at the pre drinks ceremony, forget to press record or the footage will be shaky and out of focus.
So please - all you people thinking of getting married - leave room in your budget for a professional wedding videographer. He (or she) will capture the day and the atmosphere in a way that a still photographer never can, and chances are he'll capture moments you miss completely... and whereas you'll probably put your still's album away and hardly ever look at it again - a good wedding DVD will keep you entertained over and over again...
