Sydney Wedding Film

I wish I knew these two sweeties.  Heck, I wish I knew the entire Paper Cranes Productions crew.  Because this is a group of talented people who really, really, really seem like the life of every party.  I’m talking a bride and groom who are too cute for words and a band of coworkers who captured every moment of their day in a same day edit film that will take your breath away. Do it now – press play.


From Paper Cranes Productions… Oh man, what a day.

Ferry and Renny have known each other for quite some time now, and we’ve really seen both of them grow so much together.

I feel there’s something poetic and beautiful about being able to give back to one of your mentors, who’ve taught you so much about your craft.  Ferry has really helped spark my passion for filmmaking and has taught me so much about lighting, composition and anticipation.  It was such a privilege to be able to use everything I’ve learnt, to capture HIS wedding together with Dustin, Chris and Vedro alongside the awesome Pudi and Andrew with Cinematic Portraiture.  It’s always challenging filming a wedding of a wedding videographer AND photographer (haha), and Ferry is both! This time the entire Paper Cranes team all helped to bring what they had to the table, to film and photograph the day. We were all so busy we didn’t even use the Photobooth at the reception. How ironic!

There were so many teary and emotional moments making it a big challenge to film through our watery eyes. Must’ve been the pollen blowing in from the grass outside. No, really.  The morning prayer between Ferry and Renny, where Ferry led the prayer really set the mood for the day, and shows just how far he’s grown in the time I’ve known him. I loved being able to see him through the reflection, whilst filming Ren’s reaction.

It was Dustin’s idea to get Ferry to film his own bride, during our location shoot and it was such a cool way to break the fourth wall whilst showing both of Fer’s loves at once. Ren, and film.

Chris did an insanely good job on the edit, got through the pressure, the rush, editing in the car and using Premiere for the first time in an SDE. It’s always a pleasure working altogether and being able to see everyone’s effort onscreen within a few hours, Chris, you worked hard, you deserve a shoulder massage. From Dustin.

This is only the beginning for your married adventures together, Congratulations again Ferry + Ren, on behalf of the entire Paper Cranes Team, we love you and wish you all the best.

Fer, you’re right in front of me as I’m typing this. Haha.

Romantic Sydney Wedding at Hazelhurst Art Gallery

If this wedding were any more perfect, I am not even sure I could handle it.  Because this is the type of wedding where romance and whimsical details join forces with an adorable bride and groom to create all sorts of magic: from the beautiful blooms from InBud to that stunning Collette Dinnigan gown to the gallery of love-filled moments captured by David Robertson.  Join me there for more.

From the Bride… Standing before our loved ones declaring our commitment and love for one another was pure JOY!  As Christ is the centre of our relationship, we wanted the focus to be on Him and for God to be honoured on our day. We were married where we met, a church that used to be a toyota factory, so we had so much fun styling it with family and friends the day before. I didn’t have a set theme, but I decided “summer garden party” with white, blush and mint tones to be the best way to sum it up!

Daniel proposed at the airport whilst I was in airline uniform in June 2012, and we were married in February 2013.

The dress, oh my, the dress. I was thrilled it was created by an Australian designer and as soon as I tried it on I met my mother’s eyes and we both knew! Collette Dinnigan’s staff were so lovely and even let me run around their boutique and jump on their lounge in excitement wearing my beautiful princess gown “pearls and palms.”

Before we got engaged I would stand outside my florist and gaze at her sweet creations. Emma was so willing and beautiful in character and created the most beautiful bouquet! I asked for a surprise, listing my favourite flower, and on the day a gorgeous bouquet complementing my gown perfectly, arrived. The bridesmaids wore wrist corsages, and carried parasols from pink frosting and clutches by Mimco.

It really was a community feel with so many of our friends sharing their talents and time. A friend provided the cars, another made our yummy cake, which was white chocolate raspberry with roses by T2. One of my favourite moments was seeing my youth group girls lead worship and music at the ceremony, they were so talented! My brothers also played in the band. A dear friend whom I’d travelled to India on a missions trip is a wedding singer, and she performed “Sailboats” by Brooke Fraser as I walked down the aisle. The worship was led by another missionary Jen with an incredible voice. I held hands with my dad during “amazing grace”. Both my parents walked me down the aisle as Dan’s parents stood with him. Our pastor Luke Harris led an incredible service. I invited my dearest friends to sign the register and read from Ephesians. We danced out to “Everything Has Changed” by Taylor Swift.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cupcakes and sipped on drinks with pretty straws.  (I love the small, pretty details!) Some of the jars/vases were from empty soda bottles off the plane, which I collected with permission during my work as a flight attendant. You could hear me clinking through the terminal! They were wrapped with doilies and twine. With our bridal party, we enjoyed coffee from our favourite espresso bar Bianco Nero in Gymea, before making our way to an open field for some intimate and beautiful photos by our now life long friend and photographer David Robertson! He was warm and unintrusive, and made us feel relaxed!

We held a Chinese tea ceremony to honour Dan’s heritage, although he was born in England his parents are from Malaysia and Vietnam, and it was important to us that we honour them this way.

My gorgeous friend Jacqui made our yummy cake, and guests enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere at our cocktail reception at an art gallery. The Candy bar was very popular, as was our Photo Booth, using the bench and backdrop from our register signing table at the ceremony!

My hair and makeup artists were relaxed, professional and lovely. My wonderful cousin Shirley spent hours altering my dress, making my veil and headpiece, and I can’t thank her enough. My shoes I found for nine dollars on sale, pale pink heels from Payless! so pretty.

We honeymooned in Fiji for a week. If I could offer one piece of advice, i remember the day as “good blur”. Take some time to spend alone with your hubby, even a five minute walk on the day. I treasure those moments…

Sydney Wedding at Belgenny Farm

Not only is this Sydney duo one of the sweetest couples you will ever lay your eyes upon, they also happen to be aficionados at throwing one seriously pretty celebration.  The kind of celebration that is overflowing with whimsical details (think crazy cool bunting + vibrant hues) and love-filled moments at every turn.  Push play to see every happy moment captured by In A Maze Films.  It’s awesome.


From In A Maze Films… Lisa and Alan met each other on the internet – the world wide web of possibilities in February 2011. Slowly but surely, they got to know each other, and both discovered the magic of mutual attraction and fun times and love blossomed.

Alan operates Coach business, Lisa designed BUS as their wedding theme.

Eventually they invited their closest friends and family to join them at Belgenny Farm to witness something special.
