Couple: Ashley & James
Date: 2nd April, 2016
Location: Richmond, NSW
Venue: Sydney Polo Club
Wedding videography in Sydney becomes even more exciting when blue skies drape the day with warmth and sunshine. It was the perfect weather for Ashley & James as they celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception at the Sydney Polo Club.
As part of our documentary-style storytelling, we like to provide a narrative around the special day. Our couples love seeing how their fiancé looked and felt before the actual wedding. They also love hearing the beautiful things they say!
We asked James how he was feeling about the wedding. “The thing that I'm looking forward to the most is seeing Ashley walk down the aisle. I'm not sure if I'll be able to hold it together, but I know she's going to look absolutely gorgeous. And I really just can't wait to see her”.
Ashley told us quite matter of factly: “He's my best friend. Yeah, I love him. I can't wait to marry him“. She couldn't say too much more, but tears spontaneously rolled down her cheeks, completing the story.
Ashley and James pledged their love for one another in a nature-filled, outdoors ceremony with the Hawkesbury River majestically winding behind them. It was the perfect backdrop for the perfect ceremony.
During the ceremony, at times Ashley had to laugh because all she wanted to do was cry with joy. Her voice kept catching as she was telling James all the reasons why she loves him. James played the bashful groom, tapping her in mock embarrassment, saying, “Stop it!”
Preparations were underway at the reception venue at Sydney Polo Club, renowned for its elegantly fresh, country feel.
Soon the guests filed in, milling about, filling the venue with conversation and laughter.
When it was time for Ashley and James to enter as husband and wife, they were greeted with voracious cheers.
The wedding reception included all the traditional elements of a reception such as cake cutting and dancing. And of course, wedding speeches! During his speech, James touched on the fact that they are childhood sweethearts. “Ashley, I've loved you since I was 13 years old. My love for you today is still as strong as it was then”.
There are many moments during a wedding that everyone looks forward to and are prepared for, such as the bride walking down the aisle, the vows, the first kiss, the first dance, cake cutting and so on.
But, there are also many quiet, precious moments that happen magically and spontaneously. We are on the lookout for these as well, because it's a combination of planned and unplanned moments that create the rich, exciting tapestry of every wedding day.
We give our heartfelt thanks to Ashley & James for allowing us to be part of their wonderful wedding day. May you continue to enjoy your lives together.
