Must-have wedding gadgetry to make your big day one to remember

Wedding season has begun and with the big day passing in a flash, it’s vital to have the right kit to capture every precious moment

Capture all the action of the big day in stunning 4K quality

Record the ceremony in breath-taking quality from a range of creative angles with the FDR-X3000 4K Action Cam

Despite its tiny size, the mighty action camera shoots in glorious 4K; enabling the videographer in the family to record every moment of the wedding day in breath-taking detail.

The tiny size and light weight of the X3000 allows the camera to squeeze into hard to reach areas, such as inside the bouquet, or on the front of the wedding car, to capture the day from a range of creative viewpoints. The bride could even wear the Action Cam herself, in order to capture a bride’s eye view.

Optical image stabilisation also lets you shoot beautifully clear wedding footage while avoiding unwanted judders. Plus, with the live-view remote, you can see what you’ve captured throughout the day.

Capture the magic of weddings with professional quality photos

Snap every moment without disturbing the ‘I dos’ using the α7 III’s silent shutter

The revolutionary α7 III is the perfect camera for the professional snapper in the family; assured to capture industry-standard quality wedding photography.

The silent shutter is perfectly poised to capture the big day including key moments such as the ‘I dos’, the first dance, and the bouquet toss without disturbing the happy couple. It’s also great in low light for capturing romantic moments after sunset.

For the true professional, the technologically advanced, innovative mirrorless digital camera boasts many impressive capabilities that are simply not possible with a modern digital SLR camera.

With its full-frame stacked Exmor R™ CMOS sensor, the camera enables fast data processing, allowing for maximum overall performance.

In addition, the camera’s innovative AF system tracks complex motion with higher accuracy than ever before, which will keep the bride and groom in focus from any angle.

If that wasn’t enough, the α7 III comes complete with 4K video recording, the new stacked 24.2 MP Exmor R™ image sensor and new BIONZ X processor which together, provide the ultimate piece of photography kit to capture your big day.

Capture every ‘behind the scenes’ moment

Snap the happy couple and all the guests in style with the pocketable RX100 V compact camera

Treasured moments from the ‘wedding of the year’ can be captured in the highest quality with Sony’s pocketable RX100 V compact camera. The camera boasts 20.1 Megapixels for capturing images in glorious detail and the fast, precise autofocus ensures that pictures will be clear, even after a glass of bubbly.

The RX100 V has a super slow-motion feature[1], allowing you to record and then watch back those special moments that passed by in a flash. Light, compact and easy-to-use, even the least tech savvy members of the wedding party can capture beautiful portraits and behind-the-scenes shots in amazing detail without missing any of the action.
