Jason and Michelle’s fairy-tale wedding filmed earlier this year at the stunning Abbeville Estate in Auckland, New Zealand. Out of all the weddings we’ve filmed, this was our first time shooting an Abbeville wedding! Such a great venue with everything from chapel, homestead, barn and all sorts of glorious locations for photos. Close to the airport for overseas travellers but still central for guests all over Auckland!
Traditionally, the Groom is surprised by the Bride’s dress on the wedding day. Michelle thought it would be fun if she left the colour and style of suits up to the Groom, and that would be a surprise for her on their wedding day.
The colours they chose for their wedding was Jason’s favourite, bright yellow, and Michelle’s favourite, bright pink. So Jason chose a bright cobalt blue for their suits which sets of the wedding colours off beautifully!
So many sweet details they chose too. Firstly, they wanted to make sure we filmed of their cats – Captain and George. George was kind of sleepy so that was easy, but Captain wasn’t having a bar of it! Jason wore a good luck penny in his shoe and they both received a good luck horseshoe from Jason’s nephew. On the guest setting were scallop shells they collected themselves from their favourite holiday spot, Opito Bay. Each table represented a particular year of their relationship, and each respective table had photographs displayed from that year! Last and by no means least, their EPIC first dance which they practiced with their dance teacher for five months is only my all time favourite song from the 90’s!!!
Michelle looked every inch the most beautiful, blushing bride! And Jason is undeniably the luckiest man on the planet and he knows it!!!
Congratulations to you both – you are the sweetest and funniest couple and we loved filming your day! As I watch your highlights, you can’t erase the smile on my face, or the watery bits in my eyes, lol! All the blessings on you both x
