If ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’, then a motion picture must be worth more than what mere words can describe. The day of a wedding can be described in many ways, hectic, overwhelming, joyful, energetic, beautiful, elegant, and indeed an entire string of superlatives that, like the love that creates it, goes on forever. Yet the idea that a countless infinitude of words can be recapitulated in a highlight video is one of the magical things that SDE Weddings’ videographers and cinematographers have the extraordinary ability to create. Many happy newlyweds in and around Toronto have relied on our work to sum up their storybook wedding day in full media form, and you too can enjoy a few fruits of our labour with the wedding highlight videos featured below. Give us your timeless memories and we can help you share them with the world.
Non-linear highlight reels are a few minutes longer in length compared to their linear counterpart, give or take 4 to 6 minutes. Non-linear edits tend to incorporate speeches from the end of the day, readings from the ceremony, the morning's wedding letters, and the clips played are not in sequential order. As such, the non-linear edit is slightly slower in pace, though packs much more soundbite content which results in, what our clients have found to be, a more personalized and story driven video.
Linear wedding highlight videos, a favorite among some of our video editors, seeks to tell the chronological story of your wedding day. From the moment the couple begins their diligent preparations to the final few moments spent in new found marital bliss on the banquet hall's dance floor. Linear highlight reels tend to be about 3 to 5 minutes in length, and are ideal for personal Youtube or Facebook uploads to share with family & friends as a token of remembrance for your wedding day. The wedding day's events are usually told with an accompanying song of your choice, or if you're adventurous, our seasoned cinematographers can pick a suitable song that flows well with the film. Linear highlight reels are often times fastpaced, and have little to no dialogue added as dialogue breaks do indeed 'break' the linearity and flow of the highlight reel.
A same day edit is a wedding highlight video that our wedding cinematographers create on the fly during the day of your wedding. It typically lasts about 3 to 5 minutes and it is usually played at the reception. The reason why a lot of couples get a ‘same day edit’ is so that they can see wedding day morning clips of each other getting ready, and also to highlight earlier ceremonies or events such as the wedding ceremony for any late guests to enjoy.
In a similar vein to the same day edit, a next day edit is a highlight reel reserved for weddings which span multiple days. Given that our wedding videographers and cinematographers have a bit of extra time to work on a next day edit as opposed to a same day edit, next day edits tend to be a bit longer and more polished in editing. Next day edits are rather popular for South Asian weddings which usually have multiple wedding events, with the next day edit featured in full splendor on the final day of celebration.
Imagine a complete and fully edited feature film of your very own wedding day. A cinematic creation for a lifetime. Well, our videographers and cinematographers can make such dreams a reality! A full video from our film professionals incorporates a custom music overlay of your choice, professional sound editing and colour correction for a perfect finishing touch. This edited video includes all of the footage shot during the wedding day fully incorporated into your film, to give you a complete experience of your special day from beginning to end. Length varies from 50 to 180 minutes or more, depending on the events of the day and if your wedding celebration spans into multiple days.
A subtle yet superb touch to make a sublime moment ever-more superlative! An engagement video is an option chosen by some couples to serve as an online wedding invitation to send to friends, as well as something a bit like a sneak-peek for what’s in store come the real wedding day. Engagement videos are also usually played at the reception, to give the entire wedding experience a sense of ‘completion’, with the engagement video serving as a starting-point in a way. Most importantly, since it’s not tied to the proper wedding day and all its logistics, it’s the perfect chance for couples to get creative; to tell your story, and to share a thing or two with your guests.
Why should we hire SDE Weddings to film our wedding?
Plainly put, our videographers and cinematographers are perfectionists, always striving towards providing superior quality in our work. Since we are a group of friends, there is natural competition between our videographers and editors, such that everyone tries to one-up each other in production values and quality. This environment of creative competition is one of our greatest assets in ensuring that the absolute best is always aimed for in everything that we do, and we are always striving to improve our skills and our work after each and every wedding day. Another quality of our team is that we believe in engaging our clients in the creative process.
Creativity and imagination are the fuel to our company's fire, and it goes without saying that bringing couples into the fold of our artistic endeavors will always produce unforgettable memories that last throughout the couples' lives together. We have extensive experience with a multitude of couples from many diverse backgrounds, and in the spirit of Toronto's multiculturalism, we are more than ready to accommodate to the cultures, styles and tastes of our clients.

What is a “Same Day Edit”?
SDE Weddings Videographer“This company goes above and beyond for their clients. Always professional and non invasive. Works well with photographers. The same day edit at my wedding was AMAZING! It makes our friends and family tear up! We are so happy we used their services at our wedding. I recommend to anyone, but especially to couples that may have different traditions than the basic ceremony. They are known for working with couples with different cultural backgrounds. They take the time to go over what is important to each couple! I had a larger over the top wedding and they were on point!“— Michelle + Paul 5.05.0
