Olivia & Jim - Wedding Recap

Olivia & Jim celebrated New Years Eve 2009 in style by coming a long way from Tipperary Ireland to get married in their home town of Kapiti. Their ceremony was held at St Alban's Anglican Church in Pauatahanui and their reception was at the Kapiti Boating Club. They were such a lovely couple and made the most of their day, having as much fun as possible and taking it all in.

As you can see from their wedding day recap below, the weather stayed lovely and they got some gorgeous photos taken on the Paekakariki Hill and at the Paraparaumu Beach. This was our first time working with photographer Luke Pilkinton-Ching of Vision Photography, and he did a fantastic job and was a joy to work with.

A few days later they flew back to Ireland (with a bit of a honeymoon stopover on the way) where they had a second wedding, and they played this recap of the day in Wellington to all their Irish friends. We'd like to wish Olivia & Jim all the best for their future together and thank them for allowing us to share New Years Eve with them.

Jennie & Dermot - Wedding Recap

Jennie & Dermot were married on Saturday 21st November 2009. Despite the weather their day was never gloomy - you could tell they are a couple very much in love and very excited to be getting married. The day was also brightened by the cheerful and "bright" bridal party.

Their ceremony was held in St Mary of the Angels Church followed by the Reception at D4 On Featherston, the bar & restaurant they own. The guests filled the room and the evening was full of song and dance, both Maori & Irish.

It was great to share another wedding with Paul Michaels' Photography, and some of their stunning photographs are below. We'd like to thank Jennie & Dermot for inviting us to share this emotional and exciting day with them, and wish them all the best for their future together.
We hope you enjoy this recap of their wedding day.

Wedding Music Selections - Our 2010 List!

Choosing the music for your wedding day and your wedding video is always difficult, and many of our couples ask us for help or suggestions. That's why we put together this song list which contains over 350 songs that are recommended by us and by our previous wedding couples. Hopefully this list will give you some ideas or help you think of other songs you would like.

The music you choose for your wedding DVD will become the "soundtrack" for your day. The style of music you choose is completely up to you, and should reflect the two of you. The songs don't have to be love songs, and they don't have to be slow. We recommend a mixture of slow, medium and upbeat tempos. If you really can't decide, let us choose the music we think suits your video the best.

View our updated song list by clicking the link in the right hand column, or the title of this post. If you have any questions or need any help, feel free to ask.
