People say that the most memorable celebrations begin in the midst of the Greater Blue Mountains. This actually holds true for David and Sandra who celebrated their wedding at the One & Only Resort Wolgan Valley NSW.
The wedding film produced by Paper Cranes Productions revolves around one of the statements that Sandra said to David – “Remember to strive”. The opening scene shows David and Sandra in front of their guests. David reveals that he was about to give up hope when Sandra said this line to him. It was not the usual “to try or be patient” line, but “to strive”. The scene is laced with a view of the Greater Blue Mountains, with the camera just above and behind a moving 4-wheel drive vehicle. You can hear David’s voice in the background saying that “If you’re lucky, marriage is a happy consensual choice. But more importantly, it is a promise. A promise that you don’t break, that requires some serious dedication – some striving.”.
The film then shows aerial shots of the venue and of the kangaroos running freely in the valley. It shifts to shots of the groom and his groomsmen enjoying some pre-wedding archery and cycling. The scenes then change to the bride and groom in the midst of preparations and then to the ceremony itself. Careful selection of camera angles and background music perfectly capture the look of anticipation and happiness on the couple’s faces. Scenes of the reception and dancing are then shown with voiceovers of the groom’s and bride’s vows to each other. It ends with shots of David and Sandra walking hand-in-hand towards their vehicle in the dark of night with only the headlights on. The final scene shifts to a daylight shot of the couple in a warm loving embrace showcasing the celebration of their love.
