Sam and Rachel’s Foxglove Wedding Film

Where do I start with Rachel and Sam? They are both awesomely fun and hugely talented people with big hearts to match. They have both got a ton of stage experience so it was only natural that the ceremony was held on the stage at the Lower Hutt Little Theatre, the perfect venue for our leading lady and leading man. Once they tied the knot, the party then moved on to Foxglove for a memorable evening on the Wellington waterfront. Not before stopping off at some of their favourite Wellington locations for some photos.

Weddings like theirs are a dream to attend, it was a real celebration overflowing with both energy and excitement. It’s the type of event that reminds you how special a wedding celebration should be. I only hope the wedding film does justice to the memory and excitement that everyone felt on the day.

When Rachel and Sam are “really really really old”, I hope they’ll look back at this video and say they their journey of love, laughter, music, silliness, truth and understanding all started officially on this incredible day.

Sarah & Nathan’s Boomrock Wedding Film

Nathan and Sarah’s wedding was certainly full of surprises, like the moment a freakin’ cannon went off the moment of their first kiss during the ceremony! Talk about nearly scare the living daylights out of me, let alone poor grandma in the second row ;)

Nathan and his groomsmen started his day with cut throat razor shave down at the Boar and Blade while Sarah and the girls got pampered in the top floor of Rydges Hotel in the city. Sarah was lucky enough to fly in the Helipro chopper for her grand entrance at Boomrock where the formalities began with a stunning view over the coast towards the South Island. The bridal party shot off for some photos while guests got into the activities with a spot of golf practice before the reception got into full swing (pun intended). Nathan and Sarah were treated with a spectacular and memorable sunset to round out the day. The Noodles were on hand to ensure that the party went all night and some clever individual decided we should let the cannon off again! Although this time we were prepared for it :)

Congrats Sarah and Nathan on your amazing day.

Times are changing…

Things are changing around here and some of the more eagle eyed of you will have noticed a subtle difference on my website lately. I’ve decided that my future lies in video and am no longer offering wedding photography on my website. The main reason is so that I can concentrate on being a better filmmaker.

Two years ago I shot 24 weddings over the summer season and half of those were photo and the other half were video. In the most recent wedding season I managed another 25 weddings and only three of them were photography, the rest were wedding films. So in an effort to continue that trend I’ve decided that it’s time to shift exclusively to wedding video.

That may be a little confusing as I haven’t updated my website address, which still says “Jono Tucker Photography” and I’ll just have to live with that, but what you’ll find is a whole bunch of wedding films when you get here.

The other reason for the change was that I was getting a lot of enquiries where couples wanted both photo and video and I simply don’t have enough staff and cameras for both photo and video. So by focusing on just one discipline I can create better films for the couples that choose me to make a film for them.

There are a whole bunch of very talented wedding photographers in Wellington and indeed around the rest of the country, and I really enjoy working along side those creative types. So if you want a wedding videographer then please do get in touch and I’d love to work along side your wedding photographer of choice.

Out with the old…

And in with the new…
