Another day, another impressive FPV drone video.
It provides an amusing fly-through of a wedding – or fake wedding, to be precise – in a clever marketing ploy aimed at showing a venue to couples hoping to tie the knot.
This 150-second sequence takes us on an exciting journey through Elmore Court, about 90 miles west of London, while guests await the arrival of the bride.

The audio track is later replaced by the sound of the drone ending. was added to.

The pilot described the effort as “one of the most fun and detailed projects I’ve ever done in my career”, adding that the act of flying the drone “on a 500-meter journey in and out of a building … Must be one of the most challenging projects I’ve ever done.”
Weddings services include venues like Elmore Court, which has been ravaged by the pandemic, and as the industry prepares to get back on its feet after more than a year of turmoil, those in business are now doing the same. are what they can see.
