Why did you want to capture your wedding on video?

We want to be able to relive our special day, and view those moments we are not directly involved in. Still photos are great, but to be able to watch our day unfold will be something feel we will cherish and watch over and over. It will also be nice to be able to show family and friends who were unable to attend due to various reasons.

Why did you choose Castle Media?

You were recommended to us. You came out and met us. We felt very comfortable around you and really like you style of work.

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

We both work full time Monday to Friday. Week nights are quiet nights at home. Friday night is our night to relax and wind down with a drink, or going out to catch up for dinner with friends.
Weekend are taken up with family. James has his son every weekend, and Naomi has her young grandsons some weekend. James visits his parents every Saturday. Winter Sundays are "soccer Sunday" to watch Naomis daughter play soccer.
We like trips away when we can. Busselton is a favourite quick getaway.
Live music is a favourite, and we go to concerts, or to hear a band when we can.
Naomi loves to cook, and James cleans up after here. Perfect relationship!
We walk everyday; on weekends we try to explore some local walk trails. We want to see more of this great state we live in.

The proposal ...Tell me everything...

James proposed on the second anniversary of our first date - and the location of our first date - The Rose and Crown in Guildford. James suggested they go out for dinner to celebrate their 'anniversary". He hid the ring box in his sock. He went an got drinks, sat opposite Naomi and said "I surprised you when I first kissed you, I wonder if I can surprise you again?" He opened the ring box and asked "will you marry me?"
It was a complete surprise to Naomi - and she didn't answer straight away! Realising poor James was left hanging she quickly said yes.

The venue? Why The Vines above anywhere else?

We wanted a one stop location for us and our guests. We didn't want to have to travel between venues.
We love the swan valley, and Naomi really enjoys a wine or two. 
The Vines ticked all the boxes; and the food samples at the Wedding Expo was amazing.


What experience do you want to give your guests?

A stress-free, fun time helping us celebrate our special day. We don't want them to have to travel or worry about anything. They can relax, enjoy some food and drinks, hopefully be entertained and maybe dance the night away. A large number of our guests are staying the night at the vines and hopefully we can all have breakfast together the next day.
