Wedding Memories: Wedding Videos

Back in the 1980’s and early 1990’s EVERYBODY had a wedding video.  The videographer with a huge camera blocking everyone’s view and slowing down the proceedings.  Weddings had got bigger and more OTT and people wanted to record them with the newest technology…technology that at the time was big, heavy and needed its own big microphone!
