So this is not your everyday Queenstown wedding video and Andrea and Simon’s wedding at Mount Soho was not your ordinary wedding. A couple of reasons for this:
1. They were already married but for many reasons never had a mates, lovable priest, bubbles, flash frock, pretty cake, dancing till dawn, proper wedding. And to declare publicly how much you love each other in a wedding, after already experiencing the highs and lows of marriage, is a genuine and moving event.
2. Lip syncing, stop motion, smooth dance moves, a stunning setting, gorgeous couple, cute kids, happy (slightly drunk) guests = general awesomeness. Andrea and Simon, bridesmaids, groomsmen, their children and their guests were quite frankly, amazing! And you’ll probably have to watch their wedding videos (especially the short feature) to understand exactly why.
We planned with Andrea and Simon ahead of time to do something a bit different for their short feature film. They’d seen some lip-syncing clips they liked. We had a song we loved (not a typical wedding song) licensed and waiting for the right couple. They loved it and we were all go to make a rocking short feature for their Queenstown Wedding.
On the day itself, time with Simon getting ready was tight but the man can pull out some seriously slick moves at the word go. Throughout the day Andrea and Simon were stars! We’re very grateful that they were so relaxed and open to all our suggestions. Everyone got into the spirit of a slightly mad idea and made it work.
Their short feature was a riot, loads of fun to film and make but our favourite is their long feature. A combination of the groomsmen’s speech and truly beautiful words from their priest made a moving and lovely film. Plus a Queenstown wedding has an instant advantage as the scenery is pretty damn amazing.

“Simon and I and our 2 rascals are sitting here with tears in our eyes. We are both moved and the kids are making smoochy kissy noises!
We didn’t get a chance to watch it until this morning – no bubbles or Pinot, but none required. We love it!!!!! Using the boys’ poem and Peter’s words is genius and a great mix. Love the music, footage and way you’ve put it all together. Everything about it is magic and really captures the spirit of the day.
We really appreciate your talents and can’t thank you enough really. What a fab team. About to watch it again…..and again……”
“Thank you for creating such special memories of our wedding! At first we were unsure about even having a wedding video made. It turns out that is was the best decision we made about the wedding (other than choice of spouse!). Talent and lack of ego don’t often go hand in hand, but you both have that unique combination. You made the process so easy and the final result was far better that we had dreamed! We class ourselves as movie stars now and love showing off the videos to whoever will watch. We enjoyed spending time with you both, with camera or not, and we hope our paths cross again.” – Andrea and Simon
