When you plan your wedding, there are a lot of things to take into account. Besides deciding when and where you want to get married, you need to think about catering, entertainment and transport. That is not even to mention photography and videography. How these last two aspects of your wedding happen may change in the coming years. While food is likely to remain food, your photographer might not stay the same – or even on the ground.

Drones are everywhere

Drones have become increasingly popular at weddings in recent years. You probably see drones in parks, back gardens and beauty spots all the time. They allow us to have a different perspective of the world. Where aerial photography was once the expensive preserve of helicopters, now it is possible to cheaply take high quality aerial images and videos.

Why use a drone?

You can use drones at weddings to take photos and footage from angles that a camera could not usually use – as well as to get everyone in the shot easily. Drone photography is usually only used in conjunction with a regular photographer. This means that you get the best and widest possible range of images of your wedding.

What to consider

If you do have a drone at your wedding, there are certain things you’ll need to take into account that you might not have considered. If you are getting married at a church, you’ll need to ask the church’s permission to use a drone in their grounds. You also need to check whether your drone pilot intends to take off outside of the wedding venue. If they do, they’ll need the permission of the relevant land owner.

Your pilot also has to be careful with your data. If they use the images or video they take at your wedding for commercial purposes, they could be liable to pay the owner of the wedding venue for its use.
