Wedding venue for bride prep, groom prep, ceremony and reception – Montville country cabins
And I quote “Daniel and Sarah met on a cheap online dating site” enough said about this couple, just down to earth nice people that all I need to say.
This was my kind of wedding as it all in one location which for me as I have a lot of equipment makes for a super fun wedding, with no worry of having to get anywhere. Montville Country Cabin run by Christine and Anton is just a picture-perfect place to not only stay in one of the cabins but have a wedding next to the beautiful were everything was so lush and green.
We had lots of idea’s when we met Sarah and Dan a few months ago to discuss the plans. First and foremost was the ceremony to held by the lake at dusk. I’ve never done a dusk wedding, so I was so looking forward to filming this day. We also had in mind to do a first look as we had plenty of time to get this organised well before the guess were to arrive for the ceremony.
A small shower in the morning of the wedding, made things a little humid but did not dampen the atmosphere by 11 all was gone, and the festiveness continued. Two small tents by the lake looked superb, Sarah obviously put a lot of effect into the venue, being a graphic designer, she created a bespoke font for the wedding. created everything herself so she did an amazing job. It was fun quirky with a little bit of flare.
Dan our groom who was a little shy in front the camera who tried to bribe us to leave so it didn’t have to be filmed. I believe it was twice our rate to push off! Dan was of course a bit of a comic, he was not getting rid of us that easy and soon he was kissing and doing stuff on command, good boy! Sarah and her ladies were very relaxed they enjoy some laughs while getting ready. The first look was perfect and spending the afternoon with the bridal party was heaps of fun, no stress juts wondering around taking photos and have a laugh.
The ceremony was funny, sincere, I loved the different perspectives on their relationship and to end it, a walk up the isle with sparklers, which just turned out to be amazing. Then a bit of dancing speeches, food, drinks served by the vintage boxwood bar who are awesome. and then to finish the night, a little night shoot with Sarah, Dan and some smoke bombs.
While editing this film, I went searching the some audio for some clips and came across some interesting footage. The groomsmen decided to get my audio recorder and do a “wedding pod cast” hilarious, I had some fun listen to that for 20 minutes it’s just a shame its R-rated otherwise it may have made the highlight film!
A truly magical day, it was just so much fun, so happy I was there to film it.
