Here is a highlights clip that we recently made. Although the footage from the rehersals was not intended for use - I filmed it purely to demonstrate to the couple and the vicar the various angles avilable to me and which was the best from a filming perspective (something I have always finds helps me to get the possie I want - if the vicar can see what it is you are achieving, they tend to be far more understanding and helpful (particularly when you put them on the spot to make a decision right there and then in front of the couple :D )

However, I thought it might make an interesting transition at the begining of the sequence. Next time I will aim to film it to a slightly higher standard;)

I used to film all the rehearsals when I started and used them in the highlights, however time and distance with increased weddings soon killed it, but it is a great idea

Yes, also done this before. Played at the beginning as a slo-mo B&W dream sequence with a slight echo to the vicars words, and a bit of cinematic background music. Looks great...but no one wants to pay for it as an extra. :(

I film quite a few school concerts and find the the rehearsals invaluable.... especially if they are paying for a multi camera gig.

Working out the actors "blocking" or stage movements is invaluable.

It also lets you sort out minor issues like organising audio feeds, cable runs and the like.
