We try to keep the final edited product as natural and true to the day as possible so we don’t add any extra music to the ceremony, the speeches or the evening’s dancing.
There are parts of the day that will require music added, such as the arrival of the guests and bridal party, photoshoots, reception and for the short Highlights (if this option is chosen). We try to blend in as much of the background sound as possible for these parts as long as it adds to the sequence of video and doesn’t distract. Distracting sounds include high levels of general crowd noise where there is very little intelligible conversation and just sounds like a wall of noise, excessive swearing (!), tractors and cars passing, excessive wind noise, etc.
