Wedding videography in the Southern Highlands is a truly special experience due to the area’s rich history and captivating beauty.
When shooting wedding films, we naturally focus on our couple’s wedding day moments, but the art of being wedding cinematographers is that we’re able to capture these moments while incorporating the breathtaking scenery as well.
The Southern Highlands is home to the historical towns of Bowral, Mittagong, Moss Vale, Berrima and Bundanoon, just to name a few. It’s located midway between Sydney and Canberra, which makes it the perfect destination wedding for people living in Australian cities, as well as from cities all around the world.
Many of the Southern Highland reception venues have delightful spots for wedding ceremonies, but for those who’d like a church wedding, there are two stone churches in Berrima: St Francis Xavier Catholic Church and the Holy Trinity Anglican Church (both built in the mid-19th century). There are also churches in Bowral.
The Southern Highlands is known for its rich, rural landscapes that stretch gloriously and vibrantly along plains, unfurling around stately mountains. The national parks are like national treasures, dotted with waterfalls and filled with greenery as far as the eye can see. That’s why some of our couples opt for aerial drone cinematography and time-lapse videography – to capture the vast richness and changing face of the sprawling scenery.
The Southern Highlands has several amazing locations that are a wedding videographer’s dream. Here are just a handful:
Here are some of the venues we’ve already had the pleasure of filming at:
Peppers Craigieburn is set on the outskirts of Bowral village and is renowned for its period grandeur, which includes a lacework iron veranda, a grand welcoming staircase, heritage-listed stables, and a private, flourishing rose garden. It’s the perfect location for a charming, country wedding – celebrated in grand style.
The estate is so grand, in fact, that some couples like Brittany and Myles opt for aerial drone cinematography as part of their wedding package in order to capture the expansive view. You can see our wedding videography in their wedding highlight film.

Fantastic video, very pleased with the work and the people. Helped make the day as relaxing as possible. Now we get to experience our wedding day over and over again through the video. I highly recommend Marry me movies and can't thank you enough for all your efforts.
You can have both your wedding ceremony and wedding reception at the stunning Gibraltar Hotel, aptly named, due to its striking views of magnificent Mount Gibraltar.
At the Gibraltar Hotel, you can have your wedding ceremony location in the Gallery or on the Golf Course.
The Gallery was built specifically for weddings and has 22 foot ceilings, while the golf course is set on 100 spectacular acres, with gardens galore! Both locations have several perfect positions for an intimate wedding ceremony.
After the ceremony, you can have your reception in one of three spectacular spaces: The Ballroom, San Fior or The Gallery.
From a wedding videography point of view, there are literally unlimited opportunities to capture the beauty of your special day within the brilliance of the surroundings. Whether it’s standing within the weeping willow tree, dancing amidst the gardens or kissing the night goodbye as you welcome a new day, a new life.

Located on their 200 acre property, the Bendooley Estate’s Georgian homestead is built from stone, and the property has established trees (some of the oldest in the country!), that tower majestically amidst the gardens. We love incorporating the beauty of gardens into our wedding films. Of course, no matter how magnificent the gardens, they can never compete with the beauty of the bride!
