EMILY + CHRISTOPHER // STONEBARN MANJIMUP WEDDING
Why did you want to capture your wedding on video?
Through video, you get to relive the day in full sound and colour. You get to share your special day with those loved ones who could not make it and see things that you, as the Bride and Groom, may miss throughout the day. Together, photos and videos capture all those important details and moments that make the day one of the best in your life: the emotion, the fun, the reactions, and the vows.
Why did you choose Castle Media?
We liked the style of your work and you had good reviews. An added bonus was that you do not charge by the hour.
What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What's important in life?
We are homebodies, boring I know, but it is us. We love just chilling and spending time with each other and our furbabies (we have two pups and a kitty). Give us a quiet night in by ourselves or a drink and games night with friends and we are happy.
The proposal ...Tell me everything...
Well, a couple of days after our fifth-year anniversary we went on a hike with our pups and some friends. Despite me (Emily) almost ending up in the river with some overly enthusiastic pups, it was a lovely hike which ended with Chris pulling me aside, getting down on one knee, and asking me to marry him. Of course, I said yes, and the rest I guess is history.
The venue? Why Stonebarn above anywhere else?
Out of all the typical options, you know wineries, ballrooms, churches, and the beach, none suited who we were. We love the idea of being surrounded by the forest and I (Emily) thought it would be great to get married near where Chris grew up, somewhere off the beaten track so to speak. Then we found Stonebarn and fell in love with its charm and the surrounding natural beauty, I mean what's not to love about being nestled into a valley surrounded by the Karri forest in your own little private estate?
What experience do you want to give your guests?
We want our family and friends to be immersed in the surrounding nature, to have an adventure, and to enjoy simply being present and celebrating with us.
