Filmed 18th June 2019
Location RACV Royal Pines golf course Gold Coast
Filmed and Edited by Phil Cooper
Will and Sandy booked me through a recommendation. Last year I filmed Lachlan and Amanda weddings at factory 51 in Brisbane in March 2018.
Great for them to refer me. Will and Sandy were well aware of my style and relaxed way of shooting.
It fitted them to a tee. Will and Sandy were also very laid back and just wanted to have fun and enjoy their day. Our first meeting lasted a couple of hours, just chatting and getting to know them. I knew from that point we were all going to get on great!
The day came 18th May 2019 as expected, with no stress. Prep was effortless, and They were happy to go with the flow. I’ve had never filmed at Royal Pines before, so I arrived there early to fly the drone and scope place.
And to my surprise, it was a beautiful place, lucky for us; every wedding has a butler; Jenny was so helpful, knew all the best locations, and made our jobs very easy.
The ceremony was held Next to the chapel and simple affair but just perfect for them. The vows were hilarious, just them, nothing severe, just fun and much laughter!
RACV Royal Pines is a golf course; thus, drones could only be flown within a specific place, Jenny knowing all the best stops, directed us to a field just across from the wedding where we could run around like lunatics driving gold carts….The photoshoot was a breeze lot of fun. I got the money shots in the pampas grass!
The reception was slightly different for these guys; they wanted it to fun, just a few speeches. The rest of the night was juts lots of fun times and the now-famous treasure hunt. Two groups, ten girls and ten boys, all start sitting on chairs in the middle of the room; 10 rounds all required to find something in the room. When the MC asked a question, a chair was removed from the game. It became very competitive, especially the boys, totally hectic but great fun.
It was a long day, but it was a pleasure to be there.
Some kind words from Will & Sandy
Phil is simply amazing, he is so laid back, willing to try our ideas and just overall a fun person to be around! Naturally, he would make any bride & groom feel at ease with him! One of the things that I will always remember is what he said on our first meeting “the vendors are here for you both, I am here for you both, we work around you and it’s all about you two!” and that’s exactly how Will and I felt on our wedding day!
Thank you, Phil, for being so easy to work with and showing us glimpses of those money shots where you looked so proud and more excited than us!
Lots of Love from Sandy & Will xox
