“112 Weddings” Documentary: What Happens After Your Wedding Day?

112 Weddings: 112 Weddings / TheKnot.com 112 Weddings

Who sees a bride and groom better on their wedding day than their wedding videographer? Wedding photographer, videographer and documentarian filmmaker Doug Block (who has been married for 28 years) has filmed over 112 weddings during his career, prompting him to revisit some of his favorite couples years after their wedding in his new HBO documentary, 112 Weddings, to see what their life together is like long after they’ve said their vows.

In an interview with The Nest, Doug revealed what he can tell about a couple’s future just by looking at them — and his own recipe for happily ever after.

The Nest: After filming so many weddings, what common theme do you notice about each one?

Doug Block: When I re-watch the footage, I’m always struck by how suspenseful the last hour before the ceremony is. In almost every wedding I’ve done, somewhere anywhere between 15-30 minutes before the ceremony, both the bride and groom, whether together or separately, get a “deer in the headlights” look. It dawns on them that the preparations are over, people are arriving and it’s about it happen. All the kidding stops and everything gets quiet. It’s the realization that what they’ve been planning and dreaming about is about to become reality.

TN: What do you think the perfect wedding video entails?

DB: I think it’s being in the right place at the right time with your camera to capture the many moments of the day. It’s also important to be totally unobtrusive so it doesn’t interfere with the event in any way. You shouldn’t take attention away from the bride and groom; the film needs to capture all of the ranges of emotions.
