STORY FILM: DAVID & THO // Circle of Life

I remember standing at the reception, listing to the speeches from both David & Tho’s fathers and thinking how wonderful it was that these men could take this moment to tell their children what it meant to have them in their lives. These words of gratitude and shared wisdom seemed to perfectly fit the significance of David & Tho’s wedding day – the day they left their childhood homes and began a new family life together and how, for just a moment, you could glimpse into David & Tho’s future to see them experiencing this same joy at the achievements and special moments of their own children-to-be.

The day started up in the cloudy yet beautiful Yarra Valley, the smell of the eucalyptus trees was uplifting and only enhanced the beautiful country scenery where they were getting ready for the big day. Despite the the schedule on paper, the day was very relaxed and we really enjoyed capturing all the special moment these two shared with family and friends. The ceremony and reception at the stunning Stones of the Yarra Valley really match the honesty and elegance of David & Tho’s wedding. A special mention must go out to Stones co-ordinator Sarah not only did a great job on making the reception run beautifully, she made sure we were well looked after during the evening, which is much appreciated on a 14 hour wedding work day! And of course, we also had the pleasure of working with the lovely Kirsten Cook (see her magic photos of the day here!)

David & Tho, it was such a pleasure to be there to capture the day and to be able to tell this story, which we hope you and your family will treasure for generations to come.

Leash Edwards - Beautiful story.

WEDDING HIGHLIGHT: JOËL & KAREN // A Modern Fairy Tale

We love to be part of intimate weddings and Joël & Karen’s wedding was exactly that. I remember how excited Karen was when she found out that I could film their day, she had been looking for something specific and we just connected straight away. When I arrived to Daylesford the day before their wedding and met up with Joël & Karen, they both were so open and welcoming and both them and their guests made me feel like I have been one of their friends for a long time, so this wedding was something of an experience, not just that I was able to capture their beautiful day but that I could also meet such wonderful people.

Joël & Karen choose the beautiful artist residence of Tasma House to host their wedding weekend, and the whole place had this enchanting feel about it. On the evening of their wedding day they hosted an open mic night and their friend Ally got up to tell a story – the age old story of boy meets girl, beautifully woven into a modern day fairy tale and it seemed to fit so perfectly into the story I wanted to create. There are so many times people describe a wedding day as a fairy tale and we always aim to create something that is a little bit more magical and special to each couple but to be able to actually tell a real fairy tale like it is one was such a blessing and so fun too!

Joël & Karen, it was a great pleasure and honour to meet you and be part of your celebrations. I wish you both (and of course Dali) a wonderful and magical life together.

STORY FILM: JASON & ELAINE // Rich With Love

You would think planning a wedding is hectic enough, so buying a house, honeymooning in the US and then coming home to renovate and move in all within eight weeks and in the lead up to Christmas seems crazy right? But that is exactly what Elaine and Jason are currently in the middle of right now! So hopefully they can both take a moment out of their busy schedule to sit back and enjoy reliving their beautiful wedding day.

Congratulations Elaine & Jason, we wish you all the best for your future together (with Bailey too of course!) and hope you have a bit of time in the new year to relax and enjoy married life:D

WEDDING HIGHLIGHT: STEVEN & BIANCA // My Green Eyed Girl

When it comes to weather and weddings, it’s one thing you just can’t predict – especially in fickle old Melbourne!

For Steven and Bianca, they sailed through their wedding day with ease and good humour despite the ridiculously hot 40C heat (which is no mean feat, especially for Steven in his long shirt and suit!). From the beautiful ceremony at St Ignatius to the reception at the stunning Luminare, these two smiled and laughed the whole way through, always remembering that this day was about celebrating their love with their family and friends who mean so much to them.

Steven and Bianca, it was wonderful to be part of your beautiful celebrations and we wish you all the best for your life together.
