Re: Too Much Dancing
Even if the bride's friends are all on the dance floor it's still boring to watch after a few minutes. If I stay a little later I will watch out for stuff like conga lines or the B&G doing their thing inside a big circle but people just wiggling their bums on the dance floor for a hour is really boring stuff surely??

I very much doubt whether brides would be delighted with a huge amount of footage and I doubt whether they would even watch it ... certainly not a second time anyway. Long form doesn't have to be boring unless you supply the bride with CCTV style footage!

I'm not a big fan of the "Guests at the table" stuff. Better for photography imho. People don't want a cameraman in their face for 7-8 seconds which Is what you would need for a decent shot. It's just "Hey look at these people not on the dance floor". Secondly hate getting guest interviews hen all I can hear is the DJs music "BUMP BUMP BUMP"ing in the background. I prefer to get interviews out in the hallway or somewhere a bit away from the dance floor area.

Re: Too Much Dancing
Hi David

We do guest interviews during pre-Dinner drinks which are either outside/patio/another room and the DJ hasn't started yet plus the guests are not yet drunk!

I also do table shots on video but it's basically a circle around each table so the bride cannot say to me "You never filmed my Auntie"
