Victoria Wedding Video | Diana + Andrew | Church and State Wedding, Victoria, BC

July 6, 2019

“What really won me over is when he blurted out, unprompted, “I like parades!” when we were eating lunch one day.”

How great a line is that? I mean, it says it all, doesn’t it?

Diana and Andrew had an absolutely wonderful, heartwarming wedding day filled with so much love and laughter that we came home and our faces hurt from smiling so much.

The morning was especially great with these two, because their group of friends made everything so easy. With the girls at the hotel in Sidney, there was laughter, dancing, and champagne. Meanwhile, across town, the guys were playing battleship, and I can’t tell you how much I loved that. Guys, if you’re good at putting on a suit and tie, you probably don’t need the full morning to get ready, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make great use of that time. You and your groomsmen or family can hang out, have fun, relax, and do something to calm your nerves. And, that something may just be Battleship. Why not? Board games are a great distraction and an awesome way to have fun with your friends, and (selfishly) they allow us to capture these great candid moments where you’re just having fun and laughing.

But if I had to pick a favourite moment from this film, it would be the moment between 02:41 and 02:50 when Andrew gets emotional as Diana comes down the aisle. This can be an incredible moment at a wedding, and sometimes guests are confused when they see one of us filming the groom while the bride comes down the aisle (don’t worry, the other one of us is filming the bride). We make the decision because of moments like this. The raw emotion, the love, the nerves, the tears, the smiles - we don’t want to miss any of it!

This was an incredible wedding day filled with so many special moments, and we’re so honoured that we were invited to be a part of it.

Andrew, you’ve won us over. We like parades too.
