Wedding Movies: Sarah & Mark

“Exactly five years ago, I received a heaven sent package: a man who is patient, gentle, smart, comical, loving and understanding.”

Sarah and Mark are the epitome of the purity and sweetness found in young love. We love this video because it captures the fun and the anticipation behind stepping into a new future together.

What better way to celebrate this young love than amongst the picturesque gardens of  Ballara Receptions. With the weeping willows and the beautifully classic “Love” sign to pose by, their wedding looked nothing short of something belonging to a fairytale.

Ballara Receptions provided the whole package for Sarah and Mark, from decadent catering to a timeless garden and lake for the photoshoot. We can confidently say that Ballara Receptions fulfilled the garden wedding of anybody’s dreams.

The idea you haven’t thought of..

Your memories are precious. So why would you entrust your memories to just anyone?

Travelshoot understands the importance of your memories and truly capturing the moment. They specialise in travelling to that perfect place with you to ensure that your proposal or honeymoon is represented as you want to remember it.

Have you been looking for that special something to really make your proposal? Or have you been looking for a way to ensure the priceless memories from your honeymoon are artistically and authentically caught for you to look back on in the years to come?

Proposal Photoshoot

Here at Wedding Movies, we love to see the authentic reaction captured for you to remember and your future generations to share in. That is why we love photoshoots of the proposal.

Travelshoot adds a whole new dimension for couples that propose while overseas. They use local photographers that know the area and the culture. They really know how to make the most of your priceless moment in their beautiful country. Not to mention, it makes the pricetag exceptionally affordable!

And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t love to be surprised by having their once-in-a-lifetime moment captured?

Honeymoon Photoshoot

Concerned about enlisting other tourists to take your photo while you are on your honeymoon? Why not have a photoshoot for an hour or two with a trusted photographer instead?

We love Travelshoot because they place the same value on the things we do. They know that your honeymoon is one of the most important times of your life and that it is a time that includes some of the first moments you and your other half are spending together. All the stress of planning a wedding is gone, all your friends and family are far away – finally the two of you are together at last and it’s the beginning of something truly beautiful.

Travelshoot has different packages to ensure they capture what you want them to. They create a keepsake that will take you right back to that moment all those years later.

The Perfect Gift

Not engaged but love the idea?

Well, you’re in luck, Travelshoot offer gift vouchers! It is perfect for that couple that would love something fresh as a wedding gift. This eliminates resorting to the purchase of that awkward fruit bowl of which they already have ten. It’s something different and it’s a gift they’ll remember long after they’ve sent out the Thank you cards.

So why not get them something special and unique?

Hottest Wedding Trends for Summer

Planning a wedding can be crazy to say the least.
From trying to juggle the family’s unspoken rules of “don’t sit Uncle Fred with Aunt Martha” to the panic of discovering the unexpected cost of postage stamps when sending your carefully chosen invitations.
Well, if we can make one thing easier for you, then we will…
If you’re looking for inspiration and have simply been overwhelmed with the options and recommendations, here are five things that brides everywhere are loving right now!
1. Gentle Colours
A trend that we are loving is the use of neutral, gentle colours matched with metallic.
A beautiful blue-grey or dusty rose with a touch of silver or rose gold adds a classic elegance to any wedding. It’s an easy way to make a rustic themed wedding a little more formal and will add to the sophistication of a decoration regardless of your theme.
Tip: Use the metallic of your choice sparingly to add a touch of style but be intentional about what you draw your guests attention to. Love your place cards? Use a gold pen. Want to include some trendy geometric shapes in your decor? Add some copper to it.
2. Surprises!
Another great idea that definitely adds to the entertainment of the day, is to surprise your guests. There are a variety of ways to do this, from a surprise performance from the groomsmen to a surprise wedding at what was communicated as an engagement party.
Our favourite one to be a part of at Wedding Movies is creating a quick clip to share with your guests at the reception. We edit footage after the ceremony to create a video that shows a quick run through of what a wonderful day of celebrating it was, and is a great way to leave your guests amazed!
3. Hand calligraphy
Want to add a more personal touch to your wedding? Hand written calligraphy is the perfect fix.
Hand calligraphy is beautiful and adds a touch of grace to your table setting, sign or invitation; it can be used for just about anything! It is affordable and as we are seeing with many brides, it is easy to learn yourself. After all, who doesn’t love a bit of DIY that looks great and is easy on the budget?
Still, if learning calligraphy isn’t your thing, you are in luck because all over the internet there are printables to suit your theme and colour pallet.
Tip: Pinterest will be your best friend when it comes to finding printables to use for your wedding day.
4. Social Media Videos
I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that everyone wants their special day to be “Social Media beautiful” and why not? We love sharing such an important celebration in our lives with others and it’s definitely one we want to remember in the years to come, a quick video to share with everyone we love is a great way to do this!
At Wedding Movies, we offer cinematic Teaser’s to all of our brides as a free gift with any of our packages, and they are loved! We find that it helps keep the friends and family at bay until you receive your photos and it’s something beautiful to watch on your honeymoon together.
5. Websites
Gone are the days when you needed to stress about communicating with your guests during the lead up to your big day. A trend we are seeing develop quickly is creating your own website to do this very thing.
Online communication is great! It makes receiving RSVPs a breeze, you can make sure you don’t receive an ugly fruit bowl by including a registry, and you can explain etiquette for your wedding day or even include a run sheet for the entire day.
When creating a website, the only limit is your imagination. Get creative! You can include a cute story about how you and your fiancee met or a count down to your big day. After all, this is your special day, why not include a website to aid in your celebrations?
If you’re worried about not knowing how to make a website, you’re in luck.
There are plenty of websites that offer page templates and teach you how to easily make your own.
Feel free to search for them, but here are a couple that we love:
