How did your ‘story’ begin? Tell us a bit about you both and how you arrived at this special day.
Our journey began 8 years ago...
Gwen: I am originally South African with Italian heritage and Keith is Irish. We met in Scotland on a random night out. Keith happened to know someone I lived with. We met, he stole my heart (and also the chair I was sitting on!) and the rest as they say is history!
Our Love has since taken us on a wonderful journey across the globe and we have made so many beautiful memories together.
We currently live in Melbourne, Australia. Keith proposed in July 2013. It was a sunny winter’s day in Sydney Australia. He proved that he had a few romantic tricks up his sleeve and whisked me away across the harbor to a little Island overlooking the gorgeous views of the city. The universe must have known what was about to happen and love was definitely written in the clouds, It was magical. I said yes and on the 31st of May 2014 I married my best friend and soul mate.
We were blessed with the most perfect day. It was magical.
We now look forward to our happily ever after, its truly a gift to spend forever with that one person that makes your life complete and we are so happy that we have found each other.
What was the most memorable moment of the wedding day for you?
The most memorable moment has to be during the Sand Ritual. Where Keith had to get the last say in with his pinch of sand!
What would you say to other couples thinking about hiring a cinematographer for their wedding? Why was it so important to you to invest in cinematography?
Keith: We would definitely recommend it. The day goes by so fast and you are so busy trying to chat to everyone that you miss a lot, at the end of it the day feels like a blur and It is so nice to be able to relive the day and experience it all again, especially all the special moments you may have missed which have been caught on camera.
It’s like a time capsule, you get to go back in time and relive the day whenever you want
