LAUREN + PAUL // JOONDALUP RESORT WEDDING
What made you decide to invest in wedding videography?
We want to capture the memories of our wedding in video to relive the fond and intersting events from the day in vivid detail everytime they begin to fade.
Why did you choose Castle Media?
Initially it was because you come very highly recommended, however after meeting you in person and seeing your previous work it is clear that you have a passion for finding the story in each wedding and making that story truly shine in the videos you produce.
What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What's important in life?
We work hard, adventure when we can and spend time with our families.
Lauren plays netball - I sail and ride motorbikes. But these are the only hobbies we do seperately and sometimes even together, but rarely
The proposal ...Tell me everything...
We took a holiday to Esperance at the end of January - It is my hometown and Lauren had never been. Lauren's best friend Kirsten and her recent Fiance Jordan also joined us.
On the second day we hiked to the top of Frenchmans Peak (The tallest hill in the area). We summitted the hill took some amazing photos, remarked that this would be a fantastic place to propose and then walked back down to the cave that is halfway up for a breather in the shade (It was HOT).
While we were taking some more photos and resting up, I asked Lauren to stand at the edge facing away from us as I wanted to do a long exposure shot. Little did she know that the long exposure was actually a video and I crept up behind, told her to turn around, where she found me on one knee with a ring. We were both speechless and she said yes. After which her best friend almost tackled her over the edge of the cave and to their deaths!
The venue? Why Joondalup Resort above anywhere else?
Joondalup Resort - It was the last venue we looked at and It was perfect - the atmosphere, the food, the greenery and the location - The ideal venue.
What experience do you want to give your guests?
We want our guests to celebrate the times that they have spent with us, share their stories and be merry. To extend the celebrations from Christmas through our wedding and into the New Year.
They will enjoy the ceremony pre-dinner drinks and then the wonderful Reception that we will have - ideally the guests will be dancing into the night to fantasic music!
