So as I try to stay on top of this blog this year, the first time to do is catch up on some of last years amazing weddings!
I had worked with Alexa Loy earlier in year who was a friend of Gillian’s. She kindly recommended me for this wedding, however she was not shooting it herself, her good friend Nisha Ravji was shooting this one and she was a joy to work with.
South Farm is not too far at all from where I live and the sun was shining from the early hours so the drive was pleasant! As soon as I met Gillian I knew this wedding was going to be a lot of fun. She was so laid back & her sense of humour was fitting perfectly with Nisha’s which allowed me to get some really nice laid back shots 🙂
I had a look around the venue which is beautiful and I can see why I’ve heard so much about it. Today was going to be an outdoor ceremony, I LOVE outdoor ceremonies! However they can be tricky with picking up audio, but there is always a way 🙂 I then met John to get few shots of him & his grooms men, they all had some very cool attire for the wedding!
The rest of the day flew by, the ceremony was quote emotional which was a sign for the speeches ahead! The balloons used during the cermoney where a highlight of the couple shots in the video. Also note the butterfly in the video, I just saw him and for no reason filmed him fluttering about, when John & Gillian first saw the video they asked me how did you know that John’s mother used to collect butterflies when they were little! The truth was I didn’t know but it was a touch that made the video more special.
The music picked was also so fitting, two songs that I really like too!
