PRUE + KURTIS // THE VINES RESORT WEDDING

What made you decide to invest in wedding videography?

I love looking and watching past memories. Videos really capture the emotion happening that pictures sometimes lack.

Why did you choose Castle Media?

No pressure of having to set a time limit and you are such an easy going person!

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

I (Prue) am a surveyor and so I work mostly outdoors. Kurtis works for Toyota in servicing. We have to young border collies that we try to take to the dog beach s often as we can. We both enjoy sports and play Netball (Prue) and golf (Kurtis) weekly. We both value our friends and family and so weekends often include seeing friends and family.

The proposal ...Tell me everything...

I love wombats, and so Kurtis organized for us both to go to Caversham wildlife park to see the wombats and after the wombat show to see and hold the joey wombat that they had. The day was bucketing down with rain and I had no idea why Kurtis was worried about his hair or why he was fixated on bringing a backpack into the park I was so excited to be able to hold a joey! I was talking to the guy holding the adult wombat when he said 'look there's a baby wombat', I turned and there was a lady holding a joey and a A4 paper, I wasn't wearing my glasses so I couldn't read the words, I walked closer and I was told later by Kurtis, my first words were, What the F***!. I had read - Will you marry me. I turned to Kurtis and he was on his knee holding a ring box in his hand. I lost it crying and so the photos taken all had a very red faced Prue in them. I then got to hold the joey and spend an hour playing with a wombat all in shock as to what just occurred. Deb from Caversham wildlife park then took us all through the koala enclosures and we got to meet all the koalas. One of my most favourite days ever! Kurtis bought me a stuffed wombat that sits on display in our house to mark the day he proposed.

The venue? Why The Vines above anywhere else?

Kurtis loves golf. The venue is the perfect blend of inside/outside and guests are able to spend the night. It helps that the coordinators get glowing reviews and the planning process has been so easy.

What experience do you want to give your guests?

We want everyone to have a lovely time and to celebrate with us. Given the pandemic and a few health issues in my family, we just want everyone to forget for a night and to just enjoy being with friends and family.
