Couple: Kristen & Kris
Date: 2nd April, 2016
Location: Sydney, NSW
Venue: St. Michael's Golf Club
Being wedding videographers in Sydney is a tough gig, what with the beautiful weather and amazing backdrops! In this instance we had the pleasure of filming Kristen & Kris's wedding ceremony at the church within the Chevalier Resource Centre, followed by their wedding reception at St.Michael's Golf Club.
The bridal party arrived at the church in an impressive cavalcade of Mercedes Benz. As Kristen alighted, her white gown shone and dazzled brighter than all the polished white Mercs put together.
The couple said their vows and took part in the traditional components of their Catholic wedding ceremony.
Once the ceremony was over, Kristen virtually danced down the aisle in joy, much to the delight of her new husband and happy guests. (This isn't the only time Kristen's walk transformed into a dance, as you'll soon see.)
We dare say there's never been a groom's entrance at St.Michael's Golf Course reception venue quite like this one! An avid cyclist, Kris joyfully cycled through the doors, clearly thrilled to be winning the best event of his life.
But where was his bride? Rest assured, he returned for a second entrance with his lovely wife. Rather than cycling into the venue, Kristen danced and twirled.
During the wedding speeches, Kris related the quirky story of his proposal. As wine lovers, his intention was to propose in Adelaide at a beautiful vineyard. But every time he angled Kristen toward a vine, she'd move them along to the next vineyard (apparently Kristen loves her schedules!). “In the end we had to do a little impromptu one with the sunset on the side of a hill”, Kris recounted. “And that's where I proposed. So here we are before you sharing it all together. Thanks Babe and I love you”.
During her speech, Kristen decided to spill the beans: “All those who've seen me at cycling, you'll never see me again. The sham is over, I've got him now!” She professed her love for Kris too. “He's one of a kind and I feel blessed to have met him by chance … The moral of this story is don't go on a blind date with an oil rigger, miner or a soldier, or you'll end up like me, with a happy ending”.
Speaking of happy endings, the night ended with dancing, laughter and endless joy for everyone, especially Kristen and Kris, of course!
