I am going to record parts of my sister's wedding using three or so video recorders (camcorder, mobile phone etc.)


However, said hardware won't be too near them during the "I do's".


Can anyone suggest a type of microphone that I can place near them (so that they're basically picked up clearer/louder) (which I can then sync to the video footage)?


I don't want to spend more than £10-£15 if I can, it's not a professional job or anything.

If the distance is not very close, but the subjects are close together, then a shotgun microphone is the best type.


Here's an example of a reasonably well rated one (but I don't have any personal experience with it).

Would it be possible to put a phone in a pocket to use as an audio recorder for a short time?
