I prefer not to use video light during a wedding but will always choose to do so if the light is poor. The LED light on the top of my camera is adjustable and so I don’t have to make everyone look like frightened rabbits!! You also get much better colours in the final wedding video and the wedding photographer often appreciates the extra light. So I would always advise to use when needed.
My LED light goes on top of my camera from the beginning of the day – I am never without it just in case I end up in a situation with bad light. The thing with weddings is that you are dealing with constantly changing levels of light as you move through various rooms and locations over the day. So I would never be without it!!
