We were extremely lucky to not only get to be apart of a videography engagement shoot with Bryn & Sophie, but also being apart of their AMAZING wedding at Cedar Creek estate completed this wonderful experience for us here at J’adore. Also offering engagement photos & videos we believe this to be a great way to interact & get to know our clients better whilst forming a good bond before the big day. After previously doing a close friends wedding in 2016, we were very excited to see how our past couple was going on their new venture together as husband & wife while also getting to see some familiar faces.
From the moment you enter the tree lined driveway, you’ll appreciate a charming winery in picturesque grounds in which we would describe as a perfect wedding venue. Cedar Creek Estate up at Mt Tamborine on the Gold Coast is where we first started our 6-hour escapade. This was not before though, quickly turning up at the lovely Sophie's house to catch a few quick shots, that turned out absolutely beautiful!
It really goes to show, that with the right equipment & a positive attitude going into this environment with only a few moments to spare you really can get some excellent quality footage. Especially with the right lighting, to which we had.
As the wedding ceremony was held outdoors, we had the natural lighting to fool around with for the whole day, and this definitely played into a huge benefit for the whole team of us shooting. From sun flare, to getting to fool around with the exquisite colour scheme that the out door settings had to offer us.
As it was a perfect day, we were also able to get the drone up and flying around, which resulted into some STELLA footage of both the beautiful couple as well as the breath taking venue.
As the night was leading into the reception, the speeches delivered throughout the whole night were amazing, as their was a collaboration of both heartfelt moments, accompanied by quite a few humorous ones as well. What was even better was the killer bridesmaid’s speech that featured a parody containing her best friend Sophie's voyage meeting Bryn; this got everyone’s spirits amped up in preparation for the first dance.
We were treated to a sentimental song Bryn and Sophie chose for their first dance, Kodaline- Latch. As this song had a strong symbolic meaning to each other it was lovely to see them wrapped up in another's embrace singing to each other.
