A Destination Wedding in the Canary Islands
Matt & Dom – My Sister’s Wedding
Being a videographer means that my camera very rarely leaves my side. It’s beside me when I eat, sleep, and especially when I know something momentous is about to happen! So when my own sister and Matt, the other half of York Place Films, decided to have a destination wedding abroad on the wonderful island of La Palma, I knew that I had no choice but to bring my camera along. I soon realised that this provided me a way to give a more thoughtful present (which had nothing to do with the fact that I did not have to directly pay for it… honest!). So as I explored and relaxed on holiday, I carried my camera with me, filming and documenting everything I witnessed.
It was wonderful recording those special moments of my own family as I knew I would be able to look over them and relive the experience once I had returned home. This was of course true of the wedding day itself, and whats more I knew I was recording something that could remain in our family history for generations. A present that had began just for my sister and her husband soon became one for their children and for the future. Being an integral part of the wedding as well as filming it offered a unique experience on the day, feeling first hand the joys, stresses and spirit which made the entire day that extra special. Destination weddings abroad are certainly a lot of fun, combining the best parts of that special wedding day with a lovely, relaxing (for the most part…) holiday. Congratulations Dom and Matt, and here is a poem to sum up my entire experience of the wedding for you…
Neither lost wallets nor broken toes nor rain nor hurricane of La Palma could stop your brother from the enjoyment, joy and recording of your wedding. I hope you enjoy the video,
