Real Wedding | Matt & Kate | Lindinderry – Red Hill

By Real Wedding, Videographer No Comments

Matt and Kate really wanted an intimate wedding with a few special family and friends. They wanted the backdrop of the rolling hills that Red Hill had to offer and so opted for a small wedding at Lindenderry at Red Hill. When Matt and Kate came to us they especially wanted us to capture the very special ceremony that they had planned and after seeing what took place it’s easy to understand why.

The Ceremony

With Matt waiting nervously down the aisle Kate made her entrance walking between the massive elm trees that stand to attention along the aisle. 

when it came time to say their special vows, Matt had tears of happiness in his eyes but managed to get them out without seeming to unmanly. Kate then said her own vows which again took on special meaning and made the crowd say a collective Awwww.


After the ceremony and group shot, we whisked the bridal party away for some location shots around the magnificent grounds of Lindinderry at Red Hill. Although it seemed like it might rain during the day, the weather held up and we were able to get some great light for our shots around the ground.

After the location shots, Matt & Kate made their grand entrance into the reception. They didn’t want to waste much time on formalities and so jumped pretty much straight into speeches.

The speeches really were a highlight of the night as what seemed like what would be a short and sweet affair turned into many heart felt messages and hilarity at stories of Matt’s past exploits as an Ebay reseller.

A great night was had by all and i wish both Matt and Kate all the best for the future.

Real Wedding | Michelle and Paul | Balnarring

By Real Wedding No Comments

Michelle and Paul are your typical loved up couple. They met whilst crossing paths in their professional careers in concrete and the rest was history. They started a business together and bought the home so it was logical to take the next step and get married knowing they had built a solid loving partnership together.

Michelle was intent on having a country rustic wedding set on the Mornington Peninsula. She spent months sourcing just the right jars, candles as well as all the little knick knacks that would add to the main event in every little detail.

For the venue Michelle and Paul found “The Heritage” located in Balnarring which had everything that they wanted out of a wedding venue. The magnificent gardens that are located at the back of the pub was perfect for their gathering of friends and family to witness them both say their vows. The main hall area was everything they wanted in a country rustic wedding.

The ceremony was intimate and friendly under one of the large oak trees in the Heritage Gardens gathered with friends and relatives. Afterwards the bridal party all hopped into a VW mini van and made their way to Tussie Mussie Vineyard Lodge, set amongst the hills and rolling grape vines we got some fantastic imagery.

After getting what we came for, we all went back to the Heritage where Michelle and Paul’s guests were waiting to get the party started. Michelle and Paul opted to have a band play live for their guests as they danced and sang to all the popular songs they both liked and added to the feel of a country wedding with live music.

It was one hell of a party and by the end of the night there was quite a few people that will remember that it was all such a magnificent night and also a few who wouldn’t remember but that it was evidence they had such a good time.
