Inspired by Chris proposing to Lindsay in France, they decided to get married at Lavender Hill on Waiheke Island. Here is their very poetic and romantic wedding highlights video!

Well, where do I start! We never actually got to meet Chris and Lindsay before their wedding. They were both based in Wellington so the whole wedding was organised from a distance. But via a bunch of emails and phone conversations we pretty quickly picked Chris and Lindsay were pretty cool people!!
Firstly, their Celebrant. Chris’s 86 year old grandmother Rev. Joan Hamilton was to marry them both!! It was also to be her last official duty as she retires from church formalities. HOW COOL IS THAT! And I’ve got to say, man alive did she do well! By a country mile that was the most poetic ceremony I’ve ever witnessed. So just in that sense it was a real privilege to immortalise that moment for Chris, Lindsay and Joan.
Chris and Lindsay had a theme of “Forever Starts Now”. And even if their (future) kids never grow up knowing their great grandmother, Joan, and the words she spoke will forever exist in their wedding video, and some pretty cool memories of who she is!
There was sooo much that happened on Chris and Lindsay’s wedding day. Some very “unique” presents were shared! Mandy, Lindsay’s 9 year old “baby” dog had her part. During the photoshoot the guests went on a tour to a local Olive Oil factory. The EPIC sunset we got!
And then there was the poetry! Sheesh … Here I am, stuck for words trying to describe what I heard! All I can say is I have a completely new appreciation for the beauty in the spoken word. It is such a powerful thing. And for those talented enough to express the wonder and passion of life through words, I say hear hear!!
Normally we just post the Highlight Films that we make for our couples. But Chris and Lindsay had such a cool day we were like, man, we can’t not show this!!! So here is the Feature Film we made for them. I hope you all enjoy it. :-)
