Mountain Villa Wedding Video / Boschendal
Raw emotions! – The elements of our wedding that we may miss on the day (eg. guests faces when bride comes down the aisle or people mingling at the pre-reception drinks when we are getting photographs taken), peoples reactions to speeches – the dancing and people having fun – the stunning weather – we also love watching earths natural elements (water of the lake, flowers/trees and the fire of the candles/firepits)
Your minimalist/modern, simple but effective branding, lack of cheesiness on wedding videos (in terms of music etc) your use of lighting/ artistic nature of your filming. We like being unique and found a lot of wedding videographers were very similar and boring and followed a standard format. We are liberal and very open to suggestions of doing things differently so we are excited to hear your thoughts.
We are both doctors, we met at medical school. Nick is an orthopaedic surgeon and I am a paediatrician so we are both very caring in nature. Our friends (and family) mean the most to us in the world. We both love sports. Nick loves South African rugby and Katie is a fitness instructor as well and we are interested in health and wellness.
Nick proposed to me after 9 years of waiting! We were in Nicks home country, South Africa, in Pilanesberg National Park. we woke up for an early morning drive and Nick proposed to Katie at the highest point of the Pilanesberg at sunrise with stunning views of God’s creation!
Breathtaking venue in terms of the scenery 360 degree view of mountains and vineyards (we love wine so a vineyard made sense) Katie grew up by the sea so having a private lake appealed to us with its relaxing vibe. We chose the Mountain villa rather than the olive press (the usual Boschendal wedding venue) because we wanted to have a very relaxed, informal and chilled vibe at our wedding; one that people can jump in the pool and more of a house-party vibe after the dancing! We also live in the UK so having an outdoor wedding during the UK summer months is a novelty. We adore the sunshine.
Very relaxed, chilled vibe, no pressure and we want want people to feel they can unwind and not feel stressed (we have enough of that in our job and there will be a lot of doctors at the wedding!)
