LUCY + MAREE // MILLBROOK WINERY WEDDING
Why did you want to capture your wedding on video?
I’m obsessed with childhood videos and documenting special moments, so it’s very important to me to capture the day. Also most of my family is based in the UK and unfortunately their flights were cancelled due to COVID so the video will be their only glimpse in to the day.
Why did you choose Castle Media?
Your videos look great! Flexibility with timing and very reasonably priced.
What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What's important in life?
We are both accountants, so we spend all day everyday indoors. We try to get outside as much as we can on weekends and cherish time with our doggo, family and friends.
The proposal ...Tell me everything...
To make a very long story short, around Christmas 2019 we had planned a date night in to the city. Lucy spent the whole day joking about being proposed to which meant I had to change plans on the fly. Luckily she fell asleep on the car ride, as usual, so it gave me time to plan. By the time we got there and I tried to find a quiet romantic spot away from the pot heads and tourists, Lucy was grumpy and hangry and tried to bring our dinner reservations forward. I convinced her to walk down by the river, at which point my mum called me and squashed the moment flat. I quickly hung up but Lucy was already heading for the restaurant so I grabbed her hand and dropped to one knee before anything else could go wrong. After convincing her that I wasn’t joking and the ring wasn’t from a gum ball machine, She said yes! (Woooo!) and then two cyclists whizzed by and nearly knocked us over.
The venue? Why Milbrook above anywhere else?
Haha! - limited options when replanning a whole wedding in 4 weeks, but Millbrook is beautiful. No special meaning to us though, we’d never been there before. We love that it has Margaret River feelings on the drive there.
What experience do you want to give your guests?
Just a fun night dancing, singing, celebrating, and creating memories.
