Remember the days when a wedding video used to be filmed by an uncle at the back of the church? Wedding videography has come a long way. So much so, that these days wedding videos can take the form of cinematic movie trailers, multi-camera documentary edits, short films and feature films, that showcase all of the magic and detail of the day in a multitude of wonderful ways.

Do you really need a wedding videographer?

Your wedding film is something that’ll capture the emotion, the action and the atmosphere of your wedding day forever — like no other memory — so most couples consider a good videographer a worthwhile investment.

How to find the right wedding videographer?

Start by looking at wedding video options to determine what filming styles you do and don’t like. Here’s a brief introduction to some popular wedding video editing formats.

The Wedding Teaser is a short snapshot of the wedding day, about one minute in length.

The High-Light Reel is a slightly longer trailer, averaging about five minutes, of the major moments of the wedding day.

The Ceremony Edit comprises detailed coverage of the wedding ceremony, usually with only a little editing.

The Feature Film is usually about 20 minutes in length, and is a complete, though abbreviated, visual snapshot of the whole wedding day.

The Same-Day-Edit is prepared ready for the couple and their guests to watch at the reception, and is a brief, look-back at the wedding day.

When you’ve got a clearer idea of your preferences you’ll be ready to start looking more closely at the videographers that service your area. Check out the links to their work on their websites and shortlist the businesses that appeal to you.

Alternatively, if you’re getting married in or around Adelaide, keep scrolling to find the area's best wedding videographers, rated and reviewed by couples who recently wed in South Australia.



How was this list of South Australia's top videographers determined?

At ABIA Weddings, it is important to us that all wedding couples plan their special day with confidence, based on the recommendations of recently-married couples and their own real experiences. So, this list is solely based on the feedback of real customers who voted for their wedding videographer in the prestigious South Australian ABIA Wedding Awards. Of particular note, this list is not a compilation of businesses with the most Instagram followers, or those who paid to get their name on a list.

Since 1996, ABIA have asked real brides and grooms to rate their wedding vendors out of 100% for:

  • Quality of Product and Experience
  • Quality of Service and Communication
  • Value for Money
  • Attitude of Staff and Friendliness

The South Australian videographers below are those that attained a combined rating of more than 95% in these categories, in order of achievement, and were announced as winners at the recent South Australian ABIA Wedding Awards.
