Felix and Martini’s Highlight Wedding Film
It’s crazy that we’ve been filming weddings for over five years now and it’s taken this long to have the opportunity of filming a wedding at the fantastic North Cadbury Court. Let this be the first of many we hope!
What Martini and Felix have to say…
We spend a lot of our time travelling, being active, cooking, fine dining, wine, music, movies, hanging out with friends and being outdoors! Family is really important to us and always learning and challenging ourselves.
We met at The University of Surrey as students, (about 8 years ago) we started out as friends and used to hang out a lot at the library and Starbucks (where Felix used to work as a Barista) We started dating officially on the 3rd February 2012, shortly after we both graduated we decided to go to Australia in 2014, we have since been living in Australia for 5 years! Felix proposed in November 2017 near our home (Docklands, Melbourne), we have now been together for over 7 years!
It was the Thursday 2nd November 2017 (the proposal), the weather was cold and miserable, I (Martini) was almost finishing work and Felix text me to tell me to make sure I could get home on time as he was going to cook a nice dinner (he's always home late and I usually do the cooking, so immediately thought that it was very odd!)
On my return home, Felix had a picnic basket on the table and was all dressed up in his work suit, and I was questioning him about what he was doing (he made up some elaborate story to get me outside with this hamper and champagne bottle - apparently we needed to take a photo as if we were celebrating as the photo was going to be on his friends wedding collage, and everyone was taking part) he set up the camera and said we needed to take the photo (by this point I was pretty uncooperative and refused to take this photo as it was cold and miserable and we were outside!)
Anyway, Felix then gave up on the idea of the photo and then proceeded to say we weren't actually outside for the photo and then got down and proposed (he didn't really propose though as he told me that he wanted me to be his wife instead of asking me to marry him haha!) I started crying and said yes regardless, then it turns out he'd booked one of Melbourne's top restaurant (Vue De Monde) for dinner, so we walked home cracked open the champagne, got dressed up and then went for our 12 course degustation!
We love the venue (North Cadbury Court) as geographically it's in between where we both grew up (Somerset & Hampshire) it gives us the opportunity to have a 'destination wedding' having booked it out for 3 days to spend some really good quality time with our family and friends. It's got the "ah WOW" effect the moment you walk through the door, the grounds are beautiful, and we have amazing facilities such as the underground disco, the swimming pool and jacuzzi - The lake and the lakehouse, the rooftop golf! and not to mention the grand ballroom with the grand piano - and the staircase is also amazing - it is quintessentially English and we just love that!
What they had to say before the wedding and after they received their wedding films …
How did you find us? Why did you choose us to capture your day?: Google, we choose you guys because all of your films were captured in such an emotive way, it's documented in a real story manner and you guys capture the emotions of the wedding so well. We didn't know any of the couples in the videos but felt like we could really relate and felt the emotions of the wedding! They were all incredibly beautiful!
The review: These guys are incredible, they were a dream to work with from the start - super efficient at responding and just genuinely nice people to deal with. We planned our wedding all the way from Australia and they were happy to just jump on Skype and have a chat with us. We‘re so happy with the videos they produced for our wedding, we have watched them too many times to even keep count! They captured the whole day beautifully and got all the emotions! It’s so incredibly special to have such beautiful videos and we’ll treasure them for the rest of our lives.
