Umm...what?!? Really? The videographer backed up a lot slower than I would have. Who thinks indoor fireworks is a good idea?

Hi John

Did anyone mention who did this wedding ... It might have been me but the shaky footage is not my style and you should know by now that I don't book ethnic weddings anyway!

I did a Bogen one last weekend though! The first bit all went to plan until they decided to start pre-dinner drinks early. My wife and I were doing both video and stills and do you know how hard it is to get group shots done when the guys alternative is a big jug of beer?? Later during the evening the guys decided that slugging a tankard of beer down wasn't getting the required liquid into their bodies fast enough so they resorted to downing the beer straight from the 1.5 litre jug ...most dropped the jug after emptying it so it smashed on the floor!! Lovely bunch!! During the speeches the groom also decided to show(and tell) Dad how much he loved him ..while Dad was attempting to do his speech of course!! I left everything in the video !!

Chris,
You sure you didn't cover this? I thought you went out of your way to do the indoor fireworks so you could get the "special footage" of the venue burning to the ground while the bride beats the stuffing out of the groom for being a complete idiot for hiring the indoor fireworks.
Honestly I had to stop watching after about a minute I couldn't take anymore and Chris, you know I'm being sarcastic. Can't help it. This morning its very cold here quite a bit below 0 F and getting colder every hour so I need someone to needle since my wife actually went into her office.

O|O

Hey Don

I had a close one a year ago at a Greek wedding where the candles on 10' high stands had material similar to a veil wrapped around the stand like a skirt. Yep the one caught fire and caused a bit of chaos!

My assistant caught it all on camera but I left it out of the DVD!!

Our son lives in Montreal and said it was -30 last week ... We are basking in sunshine close to 90F and higher!!

Wanna move to Australia???

Heh, I couldn't get my wife to move to the next block BUT one of my sons is going to Sydney in the next couple of weeks to visit his good friend who moved there for work. He said he can't wait to go just to get warm.

and the guy starts having a conversation with the firework pointed to the floor! I'd love to see the look on a wedding coordinators face if that happened here

Re: Wish I covered this wedding ...
 
The wedding co-ordinator clearly went full on retard that day ...

I'm gobsmacked not even one person looked worried about fireworks being set off indoors ??? what country was that wedding in, anybody know?

@ Don -

If you stopped after the first minute, you probably missed the Roman Candle!!! That was "special"...

Fountains was bad enough, but something that SHOOTS EXPLODING FIREBALLS??? Wow... not sure there's "hazard pay" enough to shoot something like that!!

This reminds me... I need to check up on insurance coverage.

If more weddings were like that I would consider shooting weddings! Sure beats American weddings! Wonderful!

No offense but I'm kind of taken back by the pompous tone most of you are taking. Not sure if you've spent your lives living in a safety bubbles and are truly clueless about the potential danger here but I can assure you there was next to no risk of "burning the place down" with those fireworks being set off indoors. Granted it was dumb to burn the dress but just because their culture is different doesn't mean you are better than them.

My only concern here would be taking a roman candle shot to the eye. Which well, guess you would have to be pretty unlucky or pretty unaware of whats going on to not duck out of the way.

Re: Wish I covered this wedding ...
 
Haha WHAT!?

Pompous?

How?

What they're doing in that marquee / room is a FIRE & SAFETY risk. Simple!

Someone could have seriously been injured !!

Can't believe you can't see that and think we're arrogant ...
