Venue: Private residence
Being wedding videographers in Kangaroo Valley is an amazing experience, not only because videography in the Southern Highlands encompasses the most exquisite scenery, but also, because we have the great honour of sharing a special day with a happy couple, just as we did with Alix & Mike.
Alix and Mike wanted their wedding day to be as relaxed as possible, more like a big party than a formal occasion. So when Alix’s best friend offered her family’s holiday home and property in Kangaroo Valley for the ceremony and reception, Alix jumped at it. Although Mike had never been to the location before, he was completely won over by the winding rainforest roads, natural wildlife, and the way the afternoon light hit the trees and mountain tops.
Alix and Mike spent a week preparing for the wedding. They gardened, made signs, and most exciting of all, made the rustic wedding arch (which was sourced from wood already on the property!).
The couple celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception on a lush stretch of grass, surrounded by mountains, wildlife and happy guests. The site required very little decoration because the location was the decoration! As wedding cinematographers, we can definitely vouch for that. The panoramic beauty of Kangroo Valley was stunning.
Alix’s favourite wedding ceremony moment was when Mike started his wedding vows with the exact quote she’d finished her vows with, even though Mike hadn’t previously seen her vows. The AA Milne quote: “Any day spent with you is my favourite day. And this is my favourite day”.
After the wedding ceremony it was time for the wedding reception, which included dancing, speeches, cake cutting, and all round partying! Our wedding videographer enjoyed capturing every exciting moment!
Thank you Alix and Mike for allowing us to be part of your special day!
