How Long Are Wedding Videos?

When it comes to our wedding videos, we want to provide you with as much variety as possible and a detailed look into all the magical moments from your day.

Factors Influencing Wedding Video Length

Depending on the type of wedding videography package you choose, and the style of video, the length of your final film can differ. For example, if you have chosen to go for the whole hog—cinematic wedding videography with extras or a short highlight wedding video as a keepsake from your wedding.

How Long Should a Wedding Video Be?

So, as for the question, how long should a wedding video be? It can depend on the style of videography you choose to go with. Cinematic style wedding videography is hugely popular and is how we film wedding videos, which means we focus on storytelling and visuals.

Cinematic Style and Duration

We prefer to tell the story of your day with detail, taking you through from morning to night, which doesn’t fit into a short 7-minute video. If a shorter form video is more suitable for the client, we have broken up our services into packages—our wedding videography services range from a final 20-minute version up to a full hour with added visual effects and shots.

45-60 minutes is our most-shot format. It’s worth remembering that we will end up with hours of footage from the start of the day to the end, including key moments such as the wedding ceremony and speeches. Having a longer wedding video like this allows us to include loads of special shots and really gives you a fully encapsulated overview of your day with all the elements that make it beautiful.

Traditional Wedding Films

When considering how long are wedding videos, it’s essential to note that traditional wedding films offer a comprehensive view of your special day. These films typically last between 60 to 90 minutes, providing an extensive and detailed account of the entire event. A traditional wedding film is almost always presented in chronological order, ensuring that the story of your day unfolds naturally. It includes all the significant moments, such as the vows and the speeches, capturing the heartfelt words exchanged during the ceremony and reception. Additionally, it features clips from the bridal prep, showcasing the excitement and anticipation of the morning. You’ll also see the first dance, the cake cutting, and the evening celebrations, allowing you to relive every joyous moment.

What You Can Expect From Our Service

We deliver, alongside our full-length option, a range of additional extras. That way, as well as enjoying your 60-minute cinematic wedding video, you’ll be provided with a highlight wedding video and a social media wedding video trailer. Then you can share snippets of the day if that’s your style, and simply show off your highlight video.

Separate Files for Key Moments

We also provide you with a separate file containing the wedding speeches and the ceremony. It’s nice to get the best bits into your wedding film but having these separately means you can enjoy those full sections back if you wish, or share them with a loved one who couldn’t make it on the day but wants to listen to the important parts!

Choosing the Right Service for You

Knowing how long you can expect a wedding video to be can help massively when choosing a service that’s right for you. Some wedding videographers may offer a set service, we offer different packages as mentioned earlier, and also film cinematic and use drones, extra camera operators, etc.

To Conclude – What is the Ideal Length?

Most videography companies should have some form of portfolio or social media platform that you can check out to see snippets of their work and information about the services they provide. The ideal length of your video will depend on what you want included, and what you want to use it for in the future.
