Our latest Wedding Films, Reviews and Wedding Tips

Welcome to our blog! Not only will we be show-casing our latest work but we will also sharing a “videographers perspective” on weddings in the hope that we can provide a few little nuggets of advise for anyone about to embark on planning their big day. As wedding cinematographers we have the unique opportunity to be able to analyze weddings in a deeper way than anyone else. We’re the “fly on the wall” at every moment of the day and we’re the people that spend hours watching through every second of the footage that has been captured. There are so many ingredients that make a wedding great and they’re usually the same ingredients that make a great wedding film; design, location, costume, story and most importantly character. A wedding should be all about you and so should your wedding film.

  • Should I Hire a Wedding Videographer? 6 Reasons why it is so Important

  • I know you think this might be coming from a slightly biased position, but one of the reasons we’re driven to film weddings year after year is because we feel it is so important. It was after getting married that we realized just how pivotal a moment a wedding is in the story of a couple’s life. Suddenly our perspective changed. We ditched the commercial work, reality TV and murky world of indie films and embraced the beauty of creating unique stories for people like you. Kismet Creative was born.  In the last few years we’ve seen a huge shift in perspective. Wedding videography was always seen as a “nice to have” but has now become absolutely essential to an increasing number of couples. The quality of work that is being put out across the world is mind blowing, with advancements in technology and a sharing of knowledge. It’s amazing to be a part of it. For those that are on the fenc[...]

We get to show so much more and reflect the dynamic nature of the day. This is why we always recommend Same Day Edits as an addition, rather than the main focus of a wedding film collection. They're a compliment to the entertainm[...]
  • South Asian Wedding Film Toronto | Palais Royale and The Gardiner Museum | Amit + Mona

  • <span data-mce-type="bookmark" style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span><span data-mce-type="bookmark" style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span> This wedding was HOT! Oh my, I think we were hitting 40 degrees at the end of June this year. Despite us spending much of the day by the lake, there was little respite from the humidity. I’m sure you’ll believe me when I say that a LOT of sweat went into making this film! But boy, was it worth it.  The Importance of Crafting a Narrative There are times where you just have to go that extra 10% and make sure you’re creating something special. When we met, Mona and Amit told me of their plan to write letters to each other. We talked about whether they would read them during their p[...]
  • The Arlington Estate Wedding Videography | Tara + Shayan

  • <span data-mce-type="bookmark" style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span><span data-mce-type="bookmark" style="display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;" class="mce_SELRES_start"></span>The dancing may have started right after the first kiss. I’m honestly not sure, but I just have the memory of seeing someone dancing somewhere at all times. Tara + Sayan’s Arlington Estate Wedding was a toughie. Not because it was hard to film or because we didn’t have great material. But because we were just spoilt for choice!  When we met Tara and Shayan, they said that they wanted their video to show everyone having “the time of their life”. And their guests certainly did. But when it came to reviewing all the footage, it became clear that this was a wedding with so much more. It was[...]

  • We love working up with unique wedding video ideas. They may come from us, from you or someone else. But what is important is how they will add so much to your wedding film and add to the experience of your day. We can create pockets of intimate moments which can offer respite from what is often a hectic schedule. They can be special, emotional and fun.  So take a look at 5 Unique Wedding Video ideas that you can incorporate into your day: Read your Love Letters Over the Phone It’s quite common for couples to exchange gifts and personal letters to each other on the morning of their wedding. But Esther and Cameron took things up a notch and read them to each other over the phone. We loved this idea! Not only do we get a reaction to reading the letter, we get a reaction to the reaction! It added more emotion to the moment and meant we had some nice back and forth engagement to work [...]
