Voideoing your wedding gives you a different way to re-live your wedding day memories. Having your wedding on video gives those who could not make it a great way to feel a part of your celebrations beyond what they might get from still photographers like myself.
A videographer can cost as much as photographer, (usually more expensive), so for most people it becomes a luxury and for this reason videographers are not commonly used.
For place of mind, deal only with full time, long established professional operators. Ask to view samples of their work on an ordinary TV. Check for sound clarity , image sharpness, camera stability, editing quality and any special effects that speak to you.
It’s important that the photographers and videographers work together well.
if you are planning to have both of them on your wedding day, I recommend you to hire them from the same company not from two different companies as they usually have their way to capture and the style might not be the same.
I work with a few videographer if you are looking for one, so I can offer you a photography & videography package to save some cost. Please contact Katsu for more details.

Wedding car companies usually charge by hour and include a driver. You can also hire a car from a rental company for the day. Transport is one area of your wedding you may be able to save money. By asking friends and family to donate cars or drivers for the day.
You may wish to appoint someone to be in charge of organising transport for guests leaving the reception. Your transport manager can organise car poling and taxis if need be and is the last to leave the reception, ensuring all the guests have left safely.
Most of your guests will have their own transport arrangement. However, some, perhaps elderly or interstate guests may not. A great way to help your guests get to and from your wedding is to organise a bus or or taxi for them.
Having the ceremony and reception at the same makes it easier for your guests, but brings with it other transport logistic problems and timing considerations. For example, your guests will have time between the ceremony and reception while the newlyweds are having their photographs taken. Make sure your guests have something to do or somewhere to go during this time. Perhaps make sure the bar is open if there is enough time, arrange for the use of the local putt-putt golf for your guests.

The arrival of the bride is one of the most anticipated parts of the ceremony.
Arriving in style will be the talking point of the day and lots of fun for the bride. Being planning for your transport needs 6-12 months before your wedding day.
Look in the white pages under wedding cars, search the internet for wedding websites with service provider database, flip through wedding magazines and ask your friends and family for recommendation.
The groom’s arrival, in contrast, is an event in itsef. Traditionally the bride and her father ride in the first car to the ceremony. It’s very romantic to arrive in a limousine or Rolls Royce and adds to the sense of occasion, but equally spectacular might be to arrive on horseback or on a Harley Davidson.
Use your imagination. The second car to arrive at the reception in the bride’s mother and bridesmaids. However, you might want to hire a bigger car to try to fit everyone in.
Closest relatives and the bridal party will most likely need assistance in getting to and from the ceremony and reception.
You may also have to organise transport for the mother and father of the grooms, mother and father of the bride’s grandparents, ushers and pageboy.

Music and Entertainment
Music has a way of connecting people of all ages and from all walks of life.
There are several opportunities through the day where the tasteful addition of selected music will enhance and add a memorable touch of romance.
Book your entertainment at least 6 months before your wedding day or risk disappointment.
DJ have become the choice of music entertainment at weddings. They are versatile, have a great selection of music, and are cheaper than a live band.
A good DJ is worth their weight in gold because they don’t just play music. An experienced DJ will be able to build a festive, jovial atmosphere by getting everyone involved with their commentary and games. Some DJ will even act as your MC.
Tell the DJ what music styles you want, for example, country, contemporary, swing etc. Also make a point of explaining what you don’t want. Get the mix right to please most of your guests. Your DJ should have a song list for you to choose from as well, but let them finalise the order of songs. A DJ will play about 15 songs an hour.
It’s good manners to sit the DJ at the table as a guest of your wedding. Leaving them out would look a little mean-spirited.
I know some good DJs that I worked with in the past. Please ask me if you are looking for one.
