James & David’s Wedding Film – Same Day Edit

James and David’s small private wedding ceremony was held at the stunning Mana Lodge in Hawkes Bay. This secluded and simply jaw dropping wedding venue provided the perfect backdrop for their intimate wedding ceremony and family lunch.

Here is a short film I edited for them on the same day as the ceremony, which was followed up the following day with an epic party of grand proportions in Auckland with all of their friends in attendance.

Lisa & Eric’s Christchurch wedding film

Lisa & Eric chose to have a small intimate garden wedding ceremony at Dyers House in Christchurch on a stunning Autumn day. When Lisa first contacted me about a wedding video, she mentioned they wanted to have a film that showed them having a fun date in the park and in true Italian style that she and Eric were going to be using a Vespa to get around the city. That sounded like just the sort of story I wanted to tell so it was off to Christchurch for a weekend to film their wedding. There is a lot more to Lisa & Eric’s story, but as I’m a better videographer than I am a writer I’ll just let their wedding video below speak for itself.

Jasmine & Richard’s Brackenridge Wedding Film

I love a bit of Scottish culture at a wedding and Richard’s proud ancestry provided plenty of that. I soon learnt that Scottish tradition included bringing along a massive 5ft sword (aka a claymore) which was proudly on display at the wedding ceremony. Jasmine, who is not one to be outdone by her new husband, also rustled up an equally impressive surprise drum solo at the end of the night before the couples’ first dance. Brackenridge put on a stunning day and the weather was picture perfect. The photographer Mary Sylvia had scoped out an excellent location for photos and the bridal party had fun in the field, but really, all of this is much better to see in the video than read on my website. So let’s get on with the film.

One of the highlights was a fantastic traditional Scottish toast at the end of the film from Richards father.

May the best ye hae ivver seen be the warst ye’ll ivver see.
May the moose ne’er lea’ yer pantry wi a tear-drap in its ee.
May ye aye be hail an hertie till ye’r auld eneuch tae dee.
May ye aye juist be sae happie as A wuss ye aye tae be.

Translation:
May the best you have ever seen be the worst you will ever see.
May the mouse never leave your pantry with a tear drop in its eye.
May you always stay hale and hearty until you are old enough to die.
May you still be as happy as I always wish you to be.
