For many soon-to-be-married couples, fantastic filming and photography is one of the most essential components of their big day. Hiring a professional photographer is key, however for some extra cool additions to your wedding day memorabilia, a drone could be your saviour.

A drone can be used to enhance every aspect of the wedding day, whether it’s before, during or after. During the wedding day it can capture your memories up close or above, as well as accompanying you as you embark on your honeymoon and first days as a married couple - here’s how…

1. Drone delivery

It's not just the wedding that a drone can be used for. Have the ring delivered by drone for the all-important proposal.


2. Aerial extras

Drone packages tend to come complete with drone pilots and an edited final video, which serves to capture all the extra elements that photography and videography on the ground cannot.

3. The wedding journey

Drones can follow the wedding car convoy from pick up to drop off, whilst taking in all of the beautiful surroundings from the journey.

4. A different perspective

A drone can capture your venue and its surroundings from a bird’s eye view. See the location from above or the arrival of guests from afar, shots that without a drone may be unobtainable.

5. Raw emotions

Reactions of the wedding party? No problem, the drone is discreet enough to capture every tear and celebratory toast.


6. Backstage shots

Drones can obtain wonderful behind the scenes footage, from the best man rehearsing his speech to the bridesmaids sharing some wise and wonderful words.

7. Party time

The atmosphere of the after party and reception can be recorded, including an aerial view of the first dance.

8. Something special

Using a drone on your special day can add a contemporary touch to a traditional celebration and make your video truly worthy of the silver screen, with extra angles and fly-by options to choose from.
