Well some TV fanatics might recognise the bride in this wedding. Lauren was the chef from “Wings & Fins” restaurant that featured in the channel 9 reality series “The Hotplate”, where competing restaurants battle it out against each other to take out best restaurant.
It was just before the series started filming that Dave and Lauren first met and started a relationship whereby Lauren had to say goodbye suddenly and start shooting the tv show. They survived the ups and downs of the show and after everything had settled, they had a loving relationship and baby on the way.
Dave and Lauren first came to us wanting to capture their special day after seeing some of our previous work. They both had some very special moments that they wanted captured. One in particular was having a butterfly release during the group shot after the ceremony at Baxter Barn. We had concerns over how to capture a few hundred butterflies flying up all at once, however it was an obvious choice to shoot the video in slow motion at 200 frames per second.
The ceremony was placed at the back of the barn facing the grand wisteria encompassing the back porch. It was a intimate ceremony that was personal to both Dave and Lauren with stories about how they met and what they mean to each other. When it came time for the group shot, coordinating the release of hundreds of butterflies is no easy task, however it was managed very well and what it resulted in was truly a unique piece of vision for their wedding video.
The location shots
After all the formal ceremony proceedings were done and dusted, we managed to get the bridal party away for a few location shots in and around the rustic scenery that is Baxter Barn.
We were able to get some memorable shots of the couple, and with the sun setting in the background made for a really fun and candid shoot.
Dave and Lauren’s wedding was most memorable and intimate. Being somewhat recognisable it was important to both Dave and Lauren that they had a small but memorable and intimate wedding, which really was achieved with great food and wine and mingling in the back decks of Baxter Barn.
