Shortly after their wedding at Horizon in Byron Bay I put together a short video clip of Courtney and Robert’s marriage vows as they were some of the most personal and unique I’ve heard in ten years filming weddings. After posting the clip to Facebook I was contacted by Love Stories TV, a wedding site that shares the work of wedding filmmakers from around world, who saw the clip and were interested in sharing it with their audience.
Fast forward a few months and I was told that the clip was now going to be submitted for an award in the Love Stories TV 2016 Film Awards. The category was “Most Likely to Make You Lol” and guess what? WE WON! I was so thrilled to hear our studio’s name called as they announced the award winners, live, in New York City. It was a public vote and we were up against some extremely talented videographers. It then became apparent that so many others out there enjoyed what Courtney and Rob said to each other just as much as I did.
“We both were very emotional when we saw our short video. It was so exciting and Rob watched the video on repeat for about five days. I couldn’t get through it without happy tears so I watched it quite a bit less but it means so much to us.”
“Rachel from Love Stories TV messaged us on Facebook and said they would love to feature our video. We nearly fell off our chair when we got an email saying it was nominated for an award a couple months later. So exciting to see talent being recognized and Geoff was so amazing on our wedding day. It definitely didn’t feel like we paid him to be there. It felt like we knew him our whole lives and it was a super bonus that he knew our photographer, Josh, so well too.” – Courtney Wilson
