Sit Back, Relax & Enjoy!

So grab some munchies and a drink and hang out here a little while to see the kind of wedding films I produce. Each of the films here is a Highlight Film meaning that its between 4-7 minutes long and has been cut from the couples Feature Film. They give you a great overview of how a wedding film might look.

I’m always up for a challenge so if you have your own ideas I’d love to discuss these with you to produce something that is truly uniquely you!

 

Nicola & Richard

In over twelve years of filming weddings I've seen brides and grooms take each others names for a double barrelled surname or the bride follows the age old tradition of taking her husbands last name. Nicola & Richard are different. Both of them with strong beliefs in equality in their relationship and in life they decided to combine not only their lives in marriage but also their surnames. What they came up with was Tagiston, a clever combination of their maiden surnames that reflects not only who they are but also the formation of a new family. Their film is one that is full of sentimentality, love and laughter.

 

Emily & Richard

Emily & Richard's is a wonderful calssic story of how two people fell in love at university. They met during their sociology class and their relationship blossomed as the years went on. What I love about this film is that is was one of the few wet days that summer and so our photoshoot options were very limited for what we call our "money" shots. Emily had put an amazing amount of effort and creativity into the styling of their day and the addition of an old fashioned typewriter was the perfect catalyst for some from a filmmaking point of view. We took this idea and used some of the notes that the guests had typed to assist in telling their unique and beautiful love story.

 

Sarah & Steve: Concept Engagement Film

At the End of the World: Sarah and Steve decided to go all out on their creative Engagement Shoot.

Amanda Wignell (www.awp.co.nz) & I met Sarah & Steve onsite at Transpacific in Mt Wellington, Auckland. Not your usual or typical Engagement Shoot location, Sarah and Steve wanted an "industrial" feeling and looking shoot, and boy did this surprise and excite us when we got there. We quickly got into the groove of a rustic, boy meets girl kind of shoot and that then became the "End of the World" theme you see here.

The song we found "End of the World" by Ingrid Michaelson (licensed through www.songfreedom.com) could not have been a better fit and tells exactly the story we hoped to tell through the visuals.

We had so much fun making this short film with Sarah & Steve. Its certainly different and we love different. Its also a wonderful thing to think about "where would you meet your other half at the end of the world". LOVE!
