From the first moment we met Laura and then shook hands with Andrew, we knew these 2 were meant to be together… And when the big day finally arrived we were there to capture it.

Here’s what Andrew & Laura had to say after watching this wedding film for the first time :  “We absolutely love it! You captured the day so beautifully down to every last detail! It’s the small moments that you forget in the rush of the day that make it such a special memory when you are watching it. We are so grateful to the whole team in not only the beginning of our legacy, but also for being so wonderful and easy to work with. It felt like you were guests and we had so much fun with you. Thank you so so much!” – Laura & Andrew

Sophie & Jackson’s mid winter wedding was a stunner! When Sophie told us that she’d managed to arrange access to Cunningham House (the large greenhouse in the botanic gardens) we knew we were in for a treat. From the start of the day at Sophie’s house, till the end of the night when DJ Dale was pumping out the 80’s classics, everything was perfect.

Here’s what Sophie & Jackson had to say after watching this wedding film for the first time :  “This is freaking epic! We love that it captured the essence of the day so perfectly! So awesome to bring back all the emotions of the day in such an epic video! Thank you so much for your professionalism, organisation, and talent to make our day so great!” –  Mr & Mrs Hagen

Joel & Sarah met on the rugby field in another continent, before flying across the world to get engaged on Sumner beach, which is where they now call home. Their wedding day was a stunner. A mid-winter wedding in Christchurch could potentially give you anything from icy cold antarctic winds, horizontal rain, or even snow, but Tai Tapu turned on a stunning blue-bird day. We took the opportunity and went adventuring Joel & Sarah who might possibly be the fittest bride & groom we’ve ever had the opportunity to capture.

Here’s what Joel & Sarah had to say after watching this wedding film for the first time :  “Wow! The video is absolutely incredible, we love it! The whole team was so professional and fun to have around on the day- even though we barely noticed you. Thanks for capturing our adventurous streak and being up for the challenge 🙂 we love you guys, you’re amazing. ” – Sarah & Joel
