Brides Desire by Airs & Graces – QEvents Bridal Award Winner
On Sunday, I filmed the beautiful Romanian wedding of Sorin & Persida. Held at the Romanian Penticostal Church, we then did the photoshoot at Roma Street parklands and UQ St Lucia. The reception was at Victoria Park Golf Complex where they had more than 200 guests in the ballroom there.
It was a long day for me, starting at 7:30am, I didn’t finish until 11:30pm. As I was only contracted to film, Sorin’s brother Emmanual from Truly Yours Productions is doing the post production. Emmanual did an amazing photo slideshow, which was presented during the reception, I have no doubts he’ll do an amazing job on his brother’s wedding video. I got about 6 hours of acquired footage.
The photo above was taken with my new Nokia n95 smartphone which features a 5 megapixel digital camera. I don’t think its going to replace my digital slr kit just yet
This is the third Romanian wedding I’ve done, at all three they were extremely hospitable which makes the length of the job less of an issue. I look forward to my next one.
I found this video on YouTube yesterday, and as a wedding service provider, I couldn’t help but feel for this poor bride. I’ve filmed and photographed at several weddings where the Bride and Bride’s maids for that matter have been most unhappy with their hair. Unlike a mark on the dress, illness, bad weather, wearing hair that you are totally unhappy with on your wedding day would be quite catastrophic. Months and sometimes years of preparation and anticipation for the big day can lead to an overwhelming flow of emotion that is totally uncontrollable.
I’ve helped Bride’s and Bride’s mothers deal with the uncontrollable effects of a bad service provider, weather, and the unfortunate events like getting the dress dirty, broken or even having parts missing. The only thing I can do as a service provider is to help the Bride understand that in the grand scheme of marrying the one they love, all of those elements become insignificant. In fact, talking with clients after years of being married, they love watching their wedding video on their wedding anniversary to see how unique their wedding became after an “incident”. It makes their day unique, and makes their relationship with each other just that extra bit special.
If your wedding runs perfectly and without flaw, thats great. However if something does happen which doesnt’ go to plan, it’s great also! Getting married is a big step, not because of prcoesses of the wedding day, but because your have found someone you want to spend the rest of your life with. Sometimes the most catastrophic things becomes the source of great memory as the overwhelming emotion associated with that incident will only ADD to the collection of wonderful memories together.
Found an article on this wedding video taken from 13,500 feet from the VASST site. I’ve had my fair share of tough weddings from the 200 odd that I’ve filmed. AVICA weddings on the gold coast comes to mind, as it was a little tricky in the chapel as they have a large glass fixture directly behind the alter, making it fun to keep silhouetting to a minimum and not having an overexposed shot just to get the bride and groom illuminated. In hindsight if i had some light bounces I could have set them up to naturally brighten the proceedings.
Anyways, I found this interesting, my work doesn’t really compare to filming at 13,500 feet. I would love to see the final product in HD.
