What do these four moments have in common: the father-daughter conversation behind ceremony doors, the walk down the aisle, the first look, and the groom’s expression? Each one has a unique point-of-view from the bride. Wouldn’t it be amazing to capture these moments (and others like it) on video? Now, you can! We spotted this via Mashable, which listed the wedding bouquet camera a ‘Do’ in a list of 18 digital dos and don’ts for weddings. Today we’re showing you more about this hidden wedding bouquet camera, small enough to hide in your bouquet but large enough to capture your wedding’s biggest moments. See the wedding bouquet camera in action and find out three reasons why you want / need / have to have one for your wedding. Enjoy!
Wedding Bouquet Camera
Ben Horne and his wife were the first couple to try it (or at least share their experience on YouTube) and here is what they saw…

What About Battery Life?
According to Ben, they used about two hours of battery life. To conserve the battery, they turned the camera on and off during the day when not in use. (If you plan to hide a camera in your bouquet, you may want a backup battery just in case.)
Won’t It Be Shaky?
The GoPro is not specifically labeled as a wedding bouquet camera, but it may as well be. This camera was made to capture first person point-of-view in action-packed scenarios like running, biking, hiking, snowboarding, kayaking, and skiing, so this camera was definitely built for action. As a result, you won’t get the same shaky motion footage you’d experience with a typical video camera. Plus, this camera is compact, durable, and the quality? Incredible. A has a GoPro (he picked one up a few years back) and we take it everywhere.
How Do You Hide the Camera?
Finally, a tutorial on how it’s done! After an outpouring of interest from viewers, Ben created a how to video tutorial to show you how it’s done.
3 Reasons Why You’ll Want One
1. You can capture moments from your unique perspective.
The photographer and videographer will capture plenty of moments, but what about the moments from your own point-of-view?
2. You have a portable video camera at any time you want one throughout the wedding.
Show off guests’ dance moves, capture the we’re officially married conversation with your groom, get candid footage from guests, capture moments with your bridesmaids, and more. I wish I had used one.
3. You will use this camera happily ever after.
Capture video footage on your honeymoon: action-packed tours, picturesque views, road trip conversation, and boarding the plane (or cruise ship). This camera is a great investment; we’ve used ours on road trips, bikes, hikes, canoes, walks, and more. It’s great fun.
Where to Buy
You can get the camera at most retailers or online for under $200.
