The Rise of Remote Weddings
Bridal Stream will send out one of their representatives, who will take care of all the filming and tech. Your guests will then be able to view your wedding on their computer, iPhone or android device, and they’ll even be able to take part in a private chatroom discussion about your wedding with other guests who couldn’t attend! The only thing you’ll need to ensure is that your wedding venue has wi-fi coverage, as this is how the video will be broadcast. You may also need to ensure your viewers have fast internet too so that they experience the best quality. Of course, as with all wedding add-ons, there’s a DIY version of live streaming. If one of your guests is prepared to be the videographer, you can use services like Skype, Facetime or even YouTube live stream to capture your big day. Just make sure you have wi-fi coverage and a steady hand. Of course, video captured on your phone will never be quite as good as that filmed on a professional camera, but it is more convenient. Why not consider sitting someone tech-y on the front row at your wedding with a netbook and high-quality webcam? Best of all, if you use a service like Skype, you can even check in with your absent friends after the ceremony is over, so they can quiz the happy couple. It’s the ideal option for unwell or elderly relatives too, who would probably be quite heartbroken to miss out. Try sending them some instant wedding pictures from your iPhone too using services like WhatsApp! This guest post was contributed by Flow Optics.
