Sara : Cameron

Sara and Camerons Colstoun House Wedding was all about family, friends and harsh sun! Watch the highlights above and then hear about their wedding in their words below.

Why do you want to capture your wedding on video?
So that we can have a lasting memory of the day that goes beyond photographs, captures the people closest to us, and also all the details we lovingly planned for the day!

Why did you pick us?
We were looking for a style that matched ours – no cliches, captures genuine moments and all very natural. Creative and emotive.

How did you meet?
We met in our second last year of high school.

A bit about you, what do you do, how do you spend your time? What’s important in life?
Cameron is a Senior Marketing Manager for a FinTech company, Sara is an Account Manager at a creative agency. We’re foodies, we enjoy travelling, appreciate design in most areas of life! We love music, being with friends and family and keeping fit and healthy. Pretty much all of the previous list is important to us and we spend our time across all of these things!

Tell us about the proposal:
December 2016, Cameron booked a surprise trip to New York, though it wasn’t originally his plan to propose there. On the first day, we went to the Boat house in Central Park for a drink to warm up, we then went for a walk down to the frozen river and skimmed stones. After Sara had made plenty inappropriate comments and asked Cameron why his heart was beating so fast, completely oblivious to what was about to happen, Cameron got down on one knee. Sara’s first response was ‘are you joking’, then (very quickly) Yes!

The venue(s) or location, why this place above anywhere else?
We loved Colstoun immediately as it could be ours for the whole weekend. It’s rustic feeling but also finished to really high standard. We wanted something that didn’t feel too formal but was also formal enough at the same time to hold a big wedding party!

What experience do you want to give your guests?
We want to have a big party with all our favourite people. We want everyone to really enjoy themselves and not feel constrained by the ‘normal’ things you experience in a more traditional wedding venue.
