Chris & Anna // Maleny Hillside Wedding

May 29, 2013  |  Featured, portfolio, video, wedding

The story of Chris & Anna is one that I am so happy to tell. On a misty day perched in the hills of Maleny Queensland, they married. Their day was one of do-it-yourself. Much effort. Love. Lots of Love. Family, friends with an undeniably honest, genuine love for the couple. From the hugs and hot chai from the bride to be in the morning and the send off with barista made coffee in the evening and all the love between, I will not forget this day any time soon. Although this video does not have any speeches (I supply these seperate), you should know that they were inspiring, hilarious and honest. I won’t go on any longer and let their story come through the movie. I shot this wedding together with Photographer Josh Weier from sehr-gut-josh, if you like what you see here you will love what he does with the camera.

Thank you Chris and Anna, may you live a great story.

Dave & Mary // Modern Eclectic Wedding

June 29, 2012  |  Featured, portfolio, video, wedding

Did someone say hand made with love? Love this creative couple! Just… wow. Dave and Mary put much thought into the choices they made for their wedding day. Using items that have lasted the test of time; quaint metal chairs hired locally, old crates, desks, wheel barrows and more. The love heart formed from finger prints of their own was something they came up with. It’s quite apparent that they want to live a long life together. Awesome! So they needed a marquee to cover the ceremony, why not build your own one? A friend had some scrub that could do with some clearing. So they cut the upright posts for their marquee from the scrub. David’s mum made the enormous canvas covering. Together with friends they pitched it on the morning of their wedding.
Following gorgeous vows they were married under a glowing afternoon sun. This video does not have the speeches. But my word, Dave & Mary you have some truly magnificent parents, family and friends. So much love for you both. So much wisdom being passed down. Congratulations on a wedding day you made your own. Pretty decorations are great. But you made it your own with meaningful pretty decorations. This I love.

Ceremony on private property near Samford, Queensland.
Reception at Light Space Industries, Fortitude Valley.
