Many couples already have children when they say “I do.” It’s a be a big event in their children’s lives and it’s wise to acknowledge them. Of course, the wedding is all about the bride and groom. But, consider making a portion of the wedding ceremony about the children. Here are some great ideas for including children in your wedding ceremony.
~Include children in a sand ceremony. If they are old enough, give each child a shell and at the appropriate time, all family members can each scoop a bit of sand and all together poor their sand into a communal shell. Usually a large conch shell will work well for this. Give the children smaller clam or scallop shells.
~Wheeling a baby in a decorated wagon should be done with care and by an older child that will watch the baby carefully. Put lots of lacy soft pillows to make it cozy. Assigning another older child or junior bridesmaid the job of following the wagon to make sure baby stays put and is safe. For a short distance, I’ve seen this done at the end of a processional. Careful though, baby might steal the show!
~A Dove Release during your wedding ceremony adds special symbolic meaning. Generally, two birds are released representing the bride and groom an entering the journey of their new life together. Add an extra dove to represent the unity of family. Watch as they are released and soar to the sky. The doves will circle, join together and fly home.
~Another way to include your children in your wedding ceremony, is to presenting your child with a bracelet or necklace during the ceremony. Give some promises of continued support and love. This is a wonderful way to reassure children that they are an important part of the family. It’s a big day for them too, and they need to be honored in some special unique way. When captured on video, these moments will be treasured forever. Make sure to tell your videographer when you are planning on something unusual like this. We may need to place extra microphones to capture the words, or bring an extra video camera to get a unique angle to feature small children in your beautiful wedding video.

Your wedding day may be the most important day of your life. Why trust it to a part time photographer who “does video” on the side? Allowing Uncle Charlie to capture your most cherished memories is a worse idea.
Leave it to the professional who has the proper equipment, creative talent and skill to do the job well. It takes someone with many years of on-the-job training to get great shots while being unobtrusive and graceful. Professional microphones, lighting kits and filters are a big investment that most people don’t carry in their camera bag. Your full time professional videographer has all this and more to insure that your wedding day memories are preserved with class and style. Let us take away the worry, and let a professional handle your videography.
You have more important things to think about on your wedding day, than being concerned if Uncle Charlie is having one drink too many, or if he’s decided to dance to his favorite songs. It was a very nice offer: to shoot your wedding video, but he just doesn’t have the experience to do your wedding justice. Let him dance the night away and have that extra drink; your professional videographer will get some amazing shots of him enjoying himself… and you’ll look a lot more relaxed too!
