Surrounded by petals and the soft sounds of local artist Nick Cunningham’s love songs, the two exchanged their vows, their rings, the first kiss and a happy smile. Twirling into the reception, an afternoon of food and laughter turned into a night on the dance floor.
Lovereel’s videography team was there to capture the moments of magic, the happy smiles and nervous laughter, and the first day of their future, together — on film.
Words from our cinematographer, Ben, who filmed this wedding
As a wedding cinematographer I always get excited about shooting weddings around Byron, especially small weddings as there’s lots of room for creativity. And this particular wedding was a classic.
I was driving an Uber the night before this wedding and I picked up a gentlemen who asked me, “What are you doing tomorrow?” I replied, “Filming a wedding” to which he responded. “I’m getting married tomorrow!” We soon worked out I had picked up the groom Jake!
This wedding featured wonderful small town vibes with amazing people across the board. The styling of the wedding was exceptional and the relaxed vibe made it very easy to work with the couple.
My favourite part about shooting in Byron Bay from a cinematic point of view is the lighting. It’s very soft and warm, there are great sunsets and plenty of last light opportunities to capture amazing shots with our couples using the local spots which best portray that quintessential “Byron image.” This makes our job so much easier as the scenery is so beautiful and natural.
I love the incredible scenery that plays am important role in the wedding. And yes, I love their Kombi van. Byron, as soon as I can, I am coming for you. x
