Introducing our brand new 'Love Tales - Engagement videos'

wedding films engagement shoot

Back in the day announcing your engagement might have been via an announcement column in the local paper, you may have sent some cards out in the post to friends and family, or even had a little photo shoot booked, other options include a creative selfie with a ring perhaps posted on Instagram with the hashtag #shesaidyes. However Race Wedding Videography has a more contemporary option to cherish forever, a more creative engagement announcement for the modern world - a ‘Love Tale - engagement video’ Let’s check it out…

‘‘ It’s a great way to announce your engagement, or even you want to keep the engagement private, having your own personal love story captured with a contemporary video is something you can both revisit time and time again like your favourite movie - it has a never ending shelf life. Also the great thing about an engagement video vs a traditional engagement photo shoot is that photography misses what video doesn’t. Our Love Tale engagement videos enable us to get to the core of the couples emotions and their unique story through high quality audio interviews and contemporary film making. It also gives couples a chance to give us a ‘trial run’ if they are thinking about hiring a wedding videographer. So far this new offering has been particularly well received. ’’

The history of engagement announcements

Once upon a time, engagement announcement in the local paper were not just for bragging parents to show the neighbours that their daughter got an PHD in criminal law and is marrying a doctor. “At one time, announcements were strictly formal and undertaken for serious reasons," according to wedding historian Susan Waggoner. "In the days of arranged marriages, where goods and property changed hands, formal, very public announcements ensured that the contract would not be broken without the offending family enduring a substantial loss of face." As in: oh you’re marrying my daughter, buddy. It’s right here in writing and the whole town knows! Furthermore, “notifying members of the church congregation...was initiated to give anyone with grounds for objecting to the match ample time to state their case.” So if you had some insider knowledge that Christopher and Chrissy were in fact closely related, you had some time to make them aware of this fact.

Therefore, it was pretty uncool to keep your engagement secret and it’s still somewhat frowned upon. “The assumption—often proven correct—is that if matters must be kept secret, something’s bound to be amiss,” writes Waggoner.
