Virtual Reality Is Coming For Weddings
"Imagine you had a grandmother who couldn't make it to the wedding for some reason--now she could, with 360-degree goggles."
Destination weddings can be fraught with guest-list politics. Do I have to invite my second cousin's inappropriate girlfriend? I'm inviting my high school best friend, but only because I'm sure she'll decline. But now, literally anyone can attend your wedding--virtually, at least.
"Everyone always tells you, When you're planning a wedding, it'll fly by, be sure to enjoy it, and I knew they were right," says Will Goldstone, who had his London nuptials recorded with a Kodak SP360 4K Action camera. "A 360 video allowed us not only to capture that viewpoint, but also to see guest reactions and the atmosphere in a way that would never be possible with ordinary video."
A VR wedding lets you enjoy multiple angles from the reception-- a walk down the aisle, a disapproving mother in the first row--in a seamless panoramic view. It also lets the couple relive the experience.
