It’s during the editing that the feel of my wedding films really start to take shape, and often I’m faced with many decisions of ‘which way to go’ with a particular edit. The music, the footage, the couple, the story I’m trying to tell…all takes a lot of time to work out in the planning stage.
Lindsey & Kenny’s edit was just one of those films. Since their Wedding Trailer some months back had a real fun upbeat feel, it was important to do something a little different and after putting together the whole film, and a separate highlights film I still had a feeling that I really wanted to use a beautiful ceremony reading by Kenny’s step-father that didn’t feature prominently elsewhere.
It’s a reading I’ve heard many times in different guises, but it was read with so much depth and a wonderful dramatic pacing, that I just had to make a feature of it and create a special extra sequence.
So, here it is – “These are the hands of your best friend”
