CINEMATIC WEDDING VIDEO | HUNTER VALLEY | NEWCASTLE | DESTINATION
Here's proof that you can break (almost) every tradition when getting married. Amy and Jared opted for a simple day for their wedding in Palm Beach NSW. Staying close by in a gorgeous beach house they both prepared for the day together. This breaks "the done thing" of the Bride and Groom getting ready in separate locations and creates a beautiful experience for the couple. It's super intimate and relaxed. It also meant their 18 month old son Chase could have a nap and wake up just in time for the ceremony.
Once Jared was ready he helped his future wife with the final touches buttoning up her stunning wedding dress and the scene was set. They walked down the aisle together as a Family, which was magic, and worked a treat for the small amount of guests watching on. Chase also handed over the wedding bands to Mum and Dad. There was also a special reading from a Dr Zeus classic.
Just look at this image below. It's beautiful. We get so used to seeing the Bride come down the aisle with her father or Mother, but it's such a rare moment when a complete Family walk down together. And there's Grandad on the right watching two generations of his own flesh and blood walk right by him. Although I'm sure he doesn't even realise how great a moment this is at the time.
Remember to ALWAYS make it about you guys, and what suits you the best. This is the formula to having the kind of day you always wanted. Forget traditions. Design it yourself. Anything is possible when you line up the best suppliers as well, a team who will work best for you.
Once the ceremony was over we explored the area, only a short distance, and grabbed some wonderful photos. There's no need to get into cars and drive around for an hour to find the magic. As these photos prove, you don't need to go far from base to capture the essence of the location where you became husband and wife.
We took just 40 minutes to get all of the portrait images nailed and then Amy and Jared headed off with their guests for an afternoon tea by the spit before heading for a dinner to unwind and celebrate their day. We weren't asked to cover the dinner party, and that's absolutely fine. It's all about doing it the way which suits your best. Be sure to check out the full gallery here.
