Narika and Daniel were married at Vilagrad's winery in Hamilton. It was a fantastic family wedding. I love the lighting in the vineyard in the evening sun. Beautiful couple with a great story.
Emma and Bryan had an amazing country wedding at Woodlyn Park near Waitomo. It was a beautiful day and the locations made for some amazing footage. I love the way the light works it's magic in the opening scenes in the old theatre. I also like the shots in the forest especially the way it was filmed hiding in the bushes to give it depth and a sense of solitude and togetherness. The first dance was amazing and what would a country wedding be without some line-dancing. I also like the way the gopro on the quad bike added an extra quality and moment for Emma and Bryan who were wonderful to work with.
Samantha and Drew were married at Red Barn in Karapiro. It's a very scenic location halfway between Hamilton and Tauranga. This is a 6-7 minute version of a wedding film - which still shows plenty from the day. There was a lot of tree blossom floating about - and it looked like it was snowing. Sam and Drew were really relaxed and happy to pop out for 15 minutes at sunset to get some fantastic shots.
Nicola and Shaun were married in Cambridge. You have to watch the opening scene on this wedding film. We used the drone to go backwards as the wedding party moved into shot one by one. We didn't have any music so I was singing Upton Funk (poorly) to help get everybody dancing. I also love the shots in the forest with the colours and light filtering through the trees. There is also a cool sequence with the wedding party after the ceremony in the wedding film. We worked closely with the photographer to get a range of shots of the day - and the wedding party was fun and up for trying ideas. Nicola and Shaun were so relaxed and I really enjoyed being part of their wedding day.
