Zlatomir + Biljana

There is nothing like a Serbian wedding ceremony, with the folklore songs serenading of the bride at the church, the beauty of the church and the quietness, subtle movements of the priest with the couple that steeps with the solemn sacrament of marriage. The candles symbolise the perpetual light of Christ.  The climax would have to be the crowning which is the sign of glory and honour.  Before the couple take their first steps together the priest ties the right hands, the act signifying ‘oneness’.  Once outside the heart thumping kolo dancing begins with Zlatomir and Biljana it was joined with fireworks and so so so much more...

"I know you probably find this hard to believe but I have adored you from the moment we met. It didn't take me long to realize that I would be the luckiest girl in the world if you chose me to be your wife".

We loved the video! It was stunning, you guys are incredible. It was so nice to re-live the day, it was so special and such a happy memory. Thank you again, it’s really beautiful we appreciate all of your hard work.

Dylan + Kauai

Dylan and Kauai met each other at the end of the runway in Nauru. They both acknowledged an instant attraction to each other and the rest is now history.

Wow! We absolutely love it! Thank you so much once again for capturing our big day. So many emotions re-living it through the video. We can’t stop watching it 😍
— Dylan and Kauai

Josh + Ali

Josh and Ali were asked what was it that made them fall in love with each other. Ali said, "it was because of how special Josh makes me feel every day". Josh said, "I fell in love with her smile, her uncontrollable fits of laughter,I know there is nothing that could stop me from loving her for the rest of my life."

Thank you so much, we love it, we’ve already watched it four times!

Thomas + Jade

"Jade, I adore you and love you more as each day passes. I promise to always give you the best of myself and to ask of you no more than you can give. I always share with you my innermost feelings.....secrets......and dreams.

Ok, now that we have both stopped crying... thank you! Thank you for taking the time to get to know us, for your warm and friendly presence on the day and for creating such a precious record of so many love-filled happy moments we will treasure for many years to come. When we first discovered your work, we were inspired by your creativity and we so appreciate the flair and style you have used in the creation of our video. Thank you again for your wonderful work.
— Thomas and Jade

Brides are getting smarter!  The one great thing about working in the wedding industry is the metamorphosis of planning your wedding venue.  Long gone are the traditional wedding reception held in a hotel conference room with its up lights and white linen table cloths with white chair covers with a matching ribbon to your bridesmaid dresses.  Thankfully we are seeing a huge move towards having your wedding reception in a community hall.  Brides it is a blank canvas, where you can spend more money on the styling instead of the hire of the venue.  Bring in your own caterers, have a burning fire pit for guests to mingle around, stay on the property. The Byron Bay wedding of Thomas and Jade was held on 400 acres at Midginbil Hill, which is an old working cattle farm with some amazing views with a country style barn. They brought in their caterer Francisco’s Table from Byron Bay.  Finally your wedding day is so much more your creation when doing it this way and lets just say a lot cheaper too!

AJ + Marnie

School yard sweet hearts are married at the Mudgeeraba Showground on the Gold Coast. Two teachers who fell in love at first sight and were married in front of there family and friends and an ice cream truck : )

When I think about our wedding day, what stands out most are the moments captured by Rob and Barb that we’ve been able to re-live. Your wedding day is such an adrenaline-fuelled blur of moments and without our wedding video, most of those beautiful moments would’ve been just that- momentary. Rob and Barb are the epitome of professionalism, check-in constantly throughout the lead-up to the big day and are genuinely committed to knowing your story and making magic with it. Our sneak-peek (cinematic trailer) was everything we had hoped for and more- and that was only the beginning of the products we ended up with. On the day, Rob and Barb blend into the background and work in a completely fluid, non-intrusive way whilst capturing all the little moments and details that you want to remember. They’re more than videographers (at one point I remember seeing Barb helping our stylists set up our dessert table)- they are there for the whole experience and just make it work. We feel so honoured and privileged to have worked with Rob and Barb, and are loving ourselves for making one of the best decisions of our lives (a huge call, but there’s no exaggeration here). If you’re a bride or groom considering a wedding videographer, I encourage you to think with your heart and invest in this decision with Fisheye Studios. It will be worth its weight in gold in the long run. Thank you, Rob and Barb- we’re forever grateful! x
— AJ and Marnie

After many years filming weddings we are very rarely surprised with new inventive way to add a different element to your wedding day, however Marnie and AJ nailed it by having a wedding ice cream truck arrive during their bridal party photo session.  The couple had many children at their wedding day and once that familiar tune started playing the race was on for your favourite ensemble.  A great new idea to rival the canapes!

 

 

Alvin + Linda

True loves from Singapore wanted to be taken away to their own secluded island for their private wedding ceremony.  They where flown to the beautiful Island Hideaway on the sandy shores of South Stradbroke Island, Gold Coast.

Nick + Michelle

So from the moment we were matched on E Harmony I knew there was something special about you. Turns out Nick, you were the man of my dreams, my one true love.

Thank goodness for membership auto renewal.

Thank you so so much! We absolutely love the cinematic trailer. You captured our day so beautifully. I know that we will treasure the memories you have captured for many years to come.
— Nick and Michelle

Josh + Stephanie

The circle of love, physically and literally was Josh and Stephanies' wedding at Belongil Beach. Such a wonderful ceremony where the chairs where placed in a circle giving everyone a closeness to the couple as they said their vows.

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much I have enjoyed watching the wedding video and would like to thank you both for doing such a fantastic job. I only wish I knew more people who were getting married so that I could recommend you to them. You have helped us make a special day even more memorable. I am sure that we will be revisiting this occasion regularly, through your efforts, many times over the coming days, weeks and years. Thanks you so much. Fondest regards and best wishes for continued success bringing joy to many other couples and their families.
— Josh + Stephanie

What appears in the same amount of photos as the bride and groom? Flowers.  Stephanies' wedding flowers appeared in every single photo : )  Her wedding flowers where amazing from the head piece to bridesmaids. Byron Bay wedding 'Flowers on the Run' did an amazing job.  They have many years of experience in providing fresh flowers which will last longer than your Uncle on the dance floor.  They only buy flowers from the local Byron Bay growers where possible which gives you such a beautiful community feel too!

Sothea + Tia

"Tia, from this day forward I promise you these things. I will laugh with you in times of joy and comfort you in times of sorrow. You are my best friend and I will love and respect you always".

You guys did an amazing job.. we didn’t even realise u guys were filming around us sometimes.. you both made us feel comfortable and was wonderful chatting with u guys in the back of the Ute.. Thank you again! And I can’t wait for the full video xo

Best grooms arrival.  Make a speed boat as your entrance to your wedding day, well jumping over the back of the boat your guests are cruising for a beach wedding at An Island Hideaway, South Stradbroke Island would be close to perfect.  These grooms ripped it up with loads of jumps from the front and back of the boat.  As a wedding videographer - somewhat nightmare as the boat flies past at super speed, luckily the speed boat driver did several jumps so that we did not miss a thing.  Wedding Videographer Tips: The only thing to advise is that there is a bit of sea spray so make sure you have a little refresher for the boys at your wedding destination. 

Sasa + Mila

The cultural weddings always keep you on your toes, and the Serbian culture definitely know how to celebrate an occasion like no other. The wedding of Sasa and Mila was that occasion which demanded a major celebration of close family and friends and dancing....lots and lots and lots of dancing.

Words can not describe the atmosphere at a Serbian wedding. This Brisbane Serbian wedding did not disappoint.  From the accordion playing from sunrise to sunrise, yes I meant to say sunrise again.  The beautifully decorated bulkia being passed around with homemade rakija from sunrise to sunrise.  Wedding decorations at the front of the bride and grooms house.  A lonely apple hanging from an arbour at the brides house where the groom must retrieve the apple before he is allowed to enter the bride’s house.  The fake brides which are sent out to the groom to trick him, on a side note, some of the fake brides range from a male cousin to the grandma.  The bartering for the bride with huge sums of cold hard cash.  With all of this happening even before the wedding ceremony, it truly is like watching an action packed movie with very attractive people having the biggest party of their lives.  It must be seen to be believed.

Lijia Chu + Lily Li

Elopement (marriage) Elopement refers to a marriage conducted in secretive fashion, usually involving a flight to a beautiful destination just what Lily and Lijiana had arranged.  Held in the stylish Evergreen Garden Venue with a few selected family and friends sometimes is all you need to celebrate one of the most important days of your life.

Jateen + Heena

Indian weddings are filled with rituals and celebrations that continue for several days. Jateen and Heena wanted theatrical, bollywood and rich with emotions, they definately did not disappoint.

The video is absolutely fantastic. The quality is phenomenal.

Craig + Katrina

Life is a balance and Craig and Katrina have got it all worked out! Well not sure boys surfing 2 hours before the ceremony is hmmm! Not so balanced with the brides getting ready early at Fig Tree Byron Bay, but hey it has to be done.

A massive thank you for all your wonderful efforts on our wedding day. It was an absolute pleasure to have you there. We are so happy with all the footage, you have exceeded our expectations. Thank you for your amazing talent!
Mum & dad have taken the DVD to the US to show the rest of the family.. They had it on a projector & all watched in awe - tears & all of course but grandma got to see it all again so she absolutely loved it! So very special to be able to do that!
— Craig and Katrina

Just love the peace and serenity of the bridal preparation house at the Byron Bay wedding venue Fig Tree Restaurant “The Diary” is nestled under the majestic fig tree with sweeping views out across Byron Bay and its big open plan living and master bedroom that allows the light to flow in, it provides the idylic location for you and your bridesmaids to get ready.  There are three bedrooms with ensuites for your bridesmaids to stay the night before the wedding too : )

Chris + Temaui

You know they say, in every man's life, there comes a time when you get struck by the arrow of cupid. Chris returned from work one day, sat on his lounge, removed his tie and looked at his Mum and said, "Wow, I've just met the most beautiful girl in the world".

We have received it and absolutely love it. Thank you so much : D
