Planning

Melissa is the Sunshine planner, answering emails and organising everything with quick, friendly communication, honest advice and lots of local knowledge. She’ll take care of all the details so you can focus on each other and the important part – getting married! Her background is in art, design and photography and runs the family gallery in Riverton in and around wedding planning. So she’s pretty good at multi-tasking. Melissa can take care of all the details, or simply point you in the right direction and offer referrals and suggestions. Every wedding and every couple is different so get in touch and together we can figure out what suits you best.

Packages

Our elopement wedding packages are for mountain weddings, lakeside wedding or with your ceremony at a hand-picked venue. All packages are designed to suit couple-only elopements or weddings with a small handful of guests. They include professional photography, celebrant, helicopter flights, witnesses, french champagne, a personalised timeline, coordination and referrals. You can add hair, makeup and flowers, a ceremony video and/or highlight video and lots more.

Photography

Scott’s photography style is warm, natural and encouraging. He loves capturing personalities by letting the day happen and shooting candid moments rather than stiff, posed shots. He has been photographing and filming weddings for more than a decade. A past life as a professional skydiver / cameraman has honed his skills for helping nervous couples feel comfortable and at ease in front of cameras too.

Ceremony Video

A simple and convenient add-on to any of our packagea. A ceremony video includes all the audio of your service and vows and will show off the beautiful ceremony location. Ideal for friends and family back home! Scott uses two fixed cameras with a small lapel mic and recorder on the groom and  celebrant. You will receive a professionally edited, colour graded HD digital mp4 sent via dropbox, along with your photos. Just ask if you’d like to see an example.

Highlight Wedding Video

Sunshine Weddings photographer Scott is a multiple AIPP award-winning and highly experienced film-maker. So alongside your photography we are uniquely positioned to offer combined photo and video packages for couple-only weddings. You get the best of both worlds without having the fuss and cost of a lot of extra people.
A highlight wedding video contains footage from throughout the day and edited to be fun and personal.  It captures your personalities, candid moments and the incredible mountain and lakeside scenery. A perfect option to show friends and families back home to help them feel a part of the day.
Highlight videos will be about 2 minutes, professionally edited, colour graded and set to licensed music. There is no audio included in the highlight video edit. Highlight videos all come with a separate edit of your ceremony which will include all the audio of your service and vows. You will receive a digital mp4 of your ceremony video and highlight videos via dropbox, 1-2 weeks after your wedding.
