Why did you want to capture your wedding on video?

We want to be able to look back at our wedding day for years to come and not lose any of the memories we make.

Why did you choose Castle Media?

We like the style of your videography, your professionalism, communication, and generosity with your time.

What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What's important in life?

Monique works as a singer and also has a "day job" for a federal public service department. Joseph also works in the federal public service. We love to spend our days together, with our children, and enjoy the simple things in life, such as going out for a meal, watching a movie, and making each other laugh.  Our family of four is the most important thing in life and making sure we always make each other feel loved and cared for.

The proposal ...Tell me everything...

Joseph had secretly designed and ordered the engagement ring a while before he proposed. As we began to enter a state of lockdown due to the pandemic, Joseph went to work at his job in the city for the last day before everyone started to work from home, and he picked up the ring that afternoon. He had grand plans for the proposal, but couldn't even find a shop which had any flowers left in stock, as everything was shutting down due to government restrictions. When Joseph arrived home, Monique was shopping online. Joseph decided he didn't want to wait and wanted to propose right then, and Monique didn't notice when Joseph went in to their bedroom with their daughter and closed the door. A few minutes later, Joseph called out to Monique to come in to the bedroom. Monique walked in to their darkened walk-in-robe decked out with many candles, and Joseph dressed up, on one knee with the ring, and their daughter in front of him in her party dress. Joseph told Monique how much she meant to him and she said yes to his proposal straight away. Monique had no idea that Joseph was going to propose, let alone have a ring, which she thought was perfect for her. Two weeks later, they were even more elated to find that they were expecting their second child.

The venue? Why the Kings Park and the Pan Pacific above anywhere else?

We chose the Marlee Pavilion for it's unique position in Kings Park, where it is hidden away but still has the beautiful views of Perth city. We chose the Pan Pacific Perth as we loved the look of the venue and it suited our style.
