Ben & Courtney – quatt quatta, ripponlea
We believe that each couple are different and every wedding is unique. We always hope our videos represent the personalities and character of each couple on their special day.
For this reason we have chosen a song that is calming and relaxing for Ben and Courtney’s highlight video.
The day starts in Adina Hotel, Queens Rd. We love hotel rooms because most of the time they provide plenty of natural light shining through the windows. It also provides us with the scenery of Melbourne CBD, which makes a lovely backdrop for Ben & Courtney’s preparation shoot.
The ‘getting ready/prep shoot’ is always an important part of our video. It is the only part of the day where the bride and groom don’t get to see each other and it is one of the special moments of the day when close family and friends get together to give moral support to the bride and groom. It’s really nice to capture the genuine interaction of the bride and groom with their bridal party, their parents and even with the flower girls and/or paige boy.
We decided to do a “first look” before going into the ceremony. It was a nerve wrecking moment for Ben when he arrived at Langham Hotel waiting at the rooftop for Courtney as we told him how amazing Courtney looked in her dress. Flinders St Station was an amazing backdrop for them and we really think the look on their faces when they saw each other was one of the perfect moments of the day.
We headed to Quatt Quatta for the ceremony. Courtney elegantly walked down the aisle with her dad as the sun was setting. The ceremony was short but very sweet, with a hint of tears here and there. Ben and Courtney walked out the aisle to a roaring applause from family members and friends, and by then we knew the celebration was about to begin.
Quatt Quatta has never been a dissapointment to provide a good party. The elegance of the building, fits really well with the whole vibe of the day. When the dance floor finally opened, all the guests shimmied their way in and got on with the party dancing away.
