Cassie and Trent are the power couple from Circa 1876 in the Hunter Valley. Cassie plans your day amazingly and ensures everyone is perfectly catered for and loved. Trent is the executive chef behind the delicious meals. It took Trent a few attempts to introduce himself to Cassie but with a little help from a colleague and a couple of drinks after work and drinking warm bears on the beach in the morning. The day rolled on and each of them arrived to work wearing bright red sunburns. The evidence was hard to hide and the rest is history. Wishing these lovers the very happiest life together!
This wedding was filmed entirely on Super 8mm. We love this format so much and have some limited pricing available on our website here.
Jess and Terry first met when they were just 14 years old! While working part-time at Dominoes Pizza. Jess says Terry used to frustrate the heck out of her, but in the end his sense of humor won here over. He always made her laugh with his silly little jokes. Terry just remembers how easy it was to push Jess's buttons. Apart from that in terms of his feelings towards Jess, these were feeling that grew over time. Terry recalls that once the two did fall in love, it was a love which grew really fast. Even if he didn't want to admit it back then, he says at that time, he could never have dreamed he could love someone as much as he did then. Since that time they have created a really beautiful, committed partnership based on trust, honesty, fun, laughter, loyalty, strength, acceptance and love. So,so much love.
A chance meeting 10 years ago at a mutual friends gathering and by the end of 2016 this romance began. Simon's first impression of Christina, stunning, with eyes that cut right through you and a warm, engaging smile. Her Mum nicknames her Sunny, and he never needed to ask why, the second you meet Christina you feel instantly warmed by her presence. Fate made sure their destiny was back on track as Christina was travelling through Europe with her sister enjoying the 2016 European Football competition in Lisbon as Portugal won the finals, which caught Simon's attention as he is a huge football fan.
Simon and Christina and engaged in some banter while she was away and deciding to catch up for drinks some months later Christina came to know Simon as a genuine, deeply passionate, thoughtful man, and she knows he will be as dedicated to her and their future as she will be to him. He is supportive and helps Christina continuously be the best version of herself and she knows he is the perfect man.
Just six weeks after their very first Christmas together she felt completely love with him. Right from the very beginning he knew it was the same feeling. He says Christina has a bigger heart than anyone he knows and her compassion and happiness comes out in him, making him want to be a better person. When they first started dating there was an instant connection and he was taken back by her depth and outlook on a lot of important things, these things matched his, and he wanted to be around her as much as he could. Everything was easier and he knew he was in love with her from then on.
Whenever we pack the kit and prepare for your wedding we are also planning our shots. We are planning how we can do things differently to the previous wedding. Being true believers in the thought " your only as good as your last wedding " gives us energy and fresh perspective on each approach. A huge part of the process is the location, and there are so many incredible properties these days it's hard to pick a favourite, but right up there with the best of the best is the whimsical Circa 1876 in the Hunter Valley. More than the scenery or historical buildings it's also the food which leaves us drooling. Take a look at this teaser trailer from the wedding film of Christina & Simon. Be inspired, Fall in Love.
Christopher & Sean were married at Newcastle's ( almost ) highest point at Shepherds Hill which is in King Edward Park. The party carried on into the night at 48 Watt Street, Newcastle. Two local guys getting hitched in front of a cheering bunch of Family and Friends. Tow local guys who have a connection and love everyone seeks. Filming this one completely in Super 8 Film ( with a little bit of 4K drone footage thrown into the mix ) wasn't easy. the low sun during ceremony and candlelit reception made it a real challenge. Still, the result is an incredible story and captivating imagery. Perfectly Imperfect!
Married by Jules Amidy and the suits were by Rundle Tailoring with florals by Little Wren with beautiful styling by The Wedding Designer and on the stills was The Wedding Architect. The car Absolute Vintage and Wedding reception venue 48 Watt Street. We love it, a 14 minute runtime.... enjoy!

There's a wedding paradise about 60 minutes drive from Newcastle City called Tocal Homestead. Although we've shot here many many times it's always possible to find something new and beautiful within the estate. We think Tocal is the epitome of a country wedding, and the Haighs' big day was styled perfectly in line with the feels of this venue. A stellar lineup of local perfectionists helped bring it all together. Floral arrangements by Sophia Wilde, Hair by Michelle Jackson, Makeup by Beth, Cake by Mae Petite, Event hire by Whimsical Fox, Photography by Stories with Mel and making it fun and official on the day was Kim Oakhill. Oh, let's not forget the AWESOME band led by Dan Runchell and delicious food by Sprout Catering. This teaser contains many drone shots, which are used to best show Tocal's stunning landscape, oh, and being a licenced drone operator is required by this property before you can take to the sky as it's located in restricted airspace. And we are licenced drone operators! Check out this teaser, we hope it's inspiring to all of you lovers looking for a venue, or seeking ideas for your wedding day. We'd love to be there for you so get in touch today. We are filmmakers. GMTMT Films - Fall in Love.
So you're engaged and have your heart set on the perfect venue. The one you've been dreaming of since you fell in love! You call them and ask to take a look and pick the date you've wanted. All of a sudden you find they are totally booked out for the summer. It happens to a lot of couples we speak to and it leaves two options. Change the venue or change the date. So here's what we think. Go for the winter wedding. Chances are there will be a bunch of dates available, not just at the venue but for photographers, videographers, dj's, stylists, florists, hair and makeup artists, the list goes on. Yes, that's right, by choosing a winter wedding you're on a winner. Take a look at the venue once winter comes in, or even better ask for picture of the venue to see how it looks during the winter. Almost everywhere in the Hunter Valley looks amazing in winter so don't be afraid to break the summer sweat and opt for the cosy fireplaces to set the tone for the big day. Watch this teaser from the July wedding of Lili and Connor at Circa 1876, love it, fall in love with it. See the summer version here!
Driving to the Hunter Valley almost every weekend to shoot a wedding is what we at GMTMT Films do. As creatives, we are so incredibly lucky to have a paradise 40 minutes from Newcastle. We love the open spaces. It inspires us and provides the scene for our lovers. We love the inside / outside vibes most venues offer up. Some, like Circa, make us drool. It's whimsical, romantic and classy. It's the type of place where fairy tales happen. Get ready in the century old Convent which is 2 minutes from the original building where the reception takes place. You don't need to leave the property to get the killer shots, which means newlyweds can hang close to their guests and avoid that disconnected wait until you return for the grand entrance. As the seasons change Circa 1876 takes on a new life throughout. It's never out of season. Deciduous trees in winter make for a lovely moody feel, while in summer lush leaves and the breeze invites the warmth and garden party feels. We've shot here a dozen times or more, know it well. She's our big girl of the Valley. She's Circa 1876.
This is Hayleigh & Ludger's Circa 1876 summer wedding. Watch it, fall in love with it. If you like it, then check out the winter version here!

Hi Brad, To put simply, your film was absolute perfection. Erik and I were just speechless at your attention to detail and the way you creatively put the whole thing together.
