Since every wedding is rare and special, editors usually try to capture footage of all that is happening in the occasion. In order to achieve this, they utilize time-condensing replays of large groups or long events. Other special effects include using slow motion replays, transforming 2D images to 3D, photo montage with soft transitions, and even adding texts and messages.

Lighting effects, such as spotlights, flashes, and lens flares are responsibilities of the videographer itself.
