Green Fun (Wedding Video Jason & Charlene)

How about it? An Australian Wedding in Singapore. Fun loving couple Jason & Charlene, decided to have their church wedding in Singapore. Charlene really loves green! Green bow ties, green ribbons, green flowers. Love those shoes of hers. We really loved the post wedding party. Everyone, young and old (check out the elderly gentleman in the video) let their hair down and partied! All together a fun time for all and a fun video. Oh and did I say Charlene loves green?

Capturing Moments and Details (Wedding Video of Kevin and Hilda)

Kevin and Hilda wanted something a little bit different. Instead of the traditional express highlights. They wanted a non-express wedding video that included the dinner speeches from family and close friends. There was a multitude of expressions from the smiles of the march in to the tears of the thank you speeches. The Lighthouse Team managed to capture the many thing that were personalised such as their board game wedding invites, hand made bouquet and their vows. This made the wedding film a very personal witness to Kevin and Hilda’s Wedding. The couple definitely enjoyed this video for sure. How would I know? Well, I’m Kevin. :) Enjoy my wedding film guys!

Expressions, it’s all that matters

It’s just great to be there for such a sweet couple like Derek & Gloria. Interesting Fact: They knew each other since they were kids and got together while studying overseas. Their wedding was a celebration among family. Even the pastor was a family friend. This made their wedding film a more personal one. We loved as they expresed their love and commitment through their vows and used them as a backbone to our film.

Timothy and Megan’s Wedding Film

We took a different apporach to the wedding highlights of Timothy & Megan. Timothy and Megan desired a wedding highlights that had an church emphasis and we did just that. The music was more measured and we included more shots that had a emotive quality. Really honoured to be able to capture those precious moments such as the loving embrace of mother and son and the two love birds looking at each other.

Gate Crash + Church Martrimony + 1st March in a express film? (Wedding Film of Shi Long & Seraphina)

Shi Long & Seraphina wanted a full throttle wedding film and we obliged. Being a pilot in the RSAF, I guess Shi Long and full throttle are synonymous. The church matrimony just before the dinner banquet was important for them and they wanted the matrimony to be in the express highlights video. We decided to go one step further by including their first march in into the wedding film! You should see the Shi Long’s rection when he saw the wedding film, his jaw dropped, in a good way. Here is a summary of the entire wedding :)

Joy + Grandeur + Intimacy: Wedding Film of Samson and Priscilla

Samson and Priscilla are fun to be with as they are such a jovial couple. Always having friendly banter with each other. You could tell of the great chemistry between them. Their church (Orchard Road Presbyterian Church) is indeed a beautiful church. The grandeur of the church was matched with the intimacy of their vows and it was a beautiful contrast placing these different  elements together in the wedding film.

Excuse me, are you a Cinematographer?

Most of our couples have always asked us what is our filming style. Are we more cinematic or are we more journalistic? Romantic or comedic?

None actually. We refuse to be boxed in to a particular style. After all, you are an entirely unique individual. You have experienced special moments in which no one around you has. You see things in different ways and feel them in different intensities. Why would we want to impose a template or a particular filming style on you?

Hongcheng (HC) and Chia Syen are a beautiful couple. I think you could place them in a Taiwanese Drama and they would never look out of place. They and their friends had put much effort to the gatecrash games (The bridesmaids wanted to punish their groomsmen husbands.) and we wanted to capture the atmosphere of the day. We also added some Taiwanese flavour to Hongcheng (HC) and Chia Syen highlights video.

It was a riot from beginning to end. We sure enjoyed filming them. Love you guys, HC and Chia Syen.

Yusheng and Wedding Videos

Recently, I went to a Lunar New Year party. The party was at a dear friend’s house who had been married for over 15 years. Like any good party , it was a good time of hanging out with great food accompanied by the ubiquitous yusheng.

Out of the blue, my friend flashed out her wedding video. Wedding videos and yusheng were an interesting combination, to say the least. It was interesting for me, being in the wedding scene to see how wedding videos have progressed from the beta cams of the past to the contemporary DSLRs.  The wedding video was really a time capsule of a time, capturing what was considered trendy, 15 years ago. Beehive hairstyles, floral dresses, the works. It was really hilarious to see my friend in the video, sulking as her husband arrived ….without the bouquet of flowers. 15 years later, she still chided her husband over the “missing bouquet”. We were all in stitches over the incident. Good memories.

The wedding video also showed her beloved mother-in-law mingling with the guests. Those recorded images were one of the only videos of her. She had recently passed away and my friend was really grateful that she could still see her in the wedding video.

The current trend of wedding companies nowadays is to produce the highlights. I sometimes wonder if 8mins of a wedding highlights video, often with an overpowering soundtrack that masks over the voices of the wedding day, is really enough to encapsulate an entire day’s events. Images and music, is that enough?

We believe in giving to our clients a wedding documentary alongside our beautiful wedding highlights video.  We strongly believe that in time to come the wedding documentary might be watched more than the highlights video itself as we capture that special day for years to come . While time may pass and memories become fussy, you can always bring out the wedding documentary during the Lunar New Year and watch it again over a plate of yusheng.
