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.

Kelly & CJ’s Brackenridge Wedding Film

If Kelly & CJ’s wedding film could be summed up in one word, then it would be ‘awesome’. It featured an intimate church ceremony at St Andrews in Martinborough before guests were transported back to Brackenridge for the wedding reception. CJ’s love of superheroes featured not just on the table decorations and the groomsmen’s cufflinks but also on the wedding cake, and one of the best quotes from the night ‘Kelly must be his Lois Lane’. What a great couple these two make. They also had one of the most fun bridal parties I’ve filmed all summer. They were masters at having a fun time and made for plenty of laughs on the creative photos session in the afternoon.

Kelly & CJ personalised the wedding with plenty of their own creative touches too, and even hired a double decker bus to drive Kelly to the church and then ferry the guests around for the day :)

Thanks Kelly and CJ for having me along to capture your wedding day on video.
