From 6am in the morning until the night draws to a close – if you film it yourself you can capture every moment you want.
DIY wedding videos, created with love by your very own circle of friends and family, can be a fantastic option for mayn types of weddings. Here’s a step-by-step guide to crafting a homemade wedding video that’s as unique and heartfelt as your love story.

The first step is to assemble your dream team. Think about the friends and family who love to capture moments on their phones. These are your videographers!

Assign roles to multiple guests to avoid overwhelming any individuals with too many jobs.
