SAMANTHA + MATTHEW // OCEAN REEF BEACH WEDDING
Why did you want to capture your wedding on video?
A photo gives just a single moment and a 1000 words can be written. A video so much more, you dont need a 1000 words. Its already there and you can relive and share with significant others.
Why did you choose Castle Media?
You dont put a time limit how can you choose how much time you need on such a day. Also reasonably priced, Your videos are amazing, and completely our style.
What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What's important in life?
We love spending our days together with our dog on adventures. Whether thats a day at the beach or a random drive to somewhere new. Somedays just laying in bed watching netflix is just as good. Our family and friends are also very important to us.
The proposal ...Tell me everything...
We had just been to Donnybrook to pick out a puppy for my parents. We played with puppys all morning before deciding on one for them. On the drive to our camping spot (that we hadn't yet found) we went past a padock full of baby dairy cows. I love cows and Matt decided to pull over so I could take a photo. I was in the moment taking a snapchat of these dairy cows, when I turned around to see what Matt was doing; he was getting down on one knee. He gave me the speech. All I could think was "let his say it, let him finish". He asked and of course I said yes. We were so in the moment we both forgot to take a photo or even take note of where we actually where. We continued on the drive just to run into Matts uncle in Colly. When we told them we just got engaged, they said it was their wedding anniversary!They where so excited to share such a special day. We will never forget their wedding anniversary now.
The venue? Why Ocean Reef above anywhere else?
We chose the Ocean Reef Harbour beach and ORSSC because we both love the beach and the ocean. We looked at so many venues but as soon as we walked into the Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club, we looked at eachother and knew this was it. This was perfect and so perfect for us. The large dancefloor also had a big tick for us.
What experience do you want to give your guests?
A relaxed, fun and entertaining night. The ceremony needs its seriousness but it also needs to be entertaining and fun. Too serious is too boring for us. And carry that vibe onto the reception. A few heart felt moments and a good laugh.
