Once upon a time wedding videography was optional. It seemed like a luxury alongside a wedding photographer, but in an increasingly digitalised world where we store our memories online, the wedding video has become a vital added dimension of reminisce. A chance to relive the day again, with all of the laughter, tears, speeches, looks, and details immortalised for a lifetime, shared online with friends and family to enjoy at will. Like wedding photographers, there’s a plethora of service providers and navigating them can be a minefield when you only get one chance to capture the day of your dreams.
We have been proud to recommend Melbourne based Purple Ribbon Weddings as a film co. Renowned for delivering over and above every single time, and the first choice for those with unlimited choice (such as Nadia and Jimmy Bartel, and blogger Saasha Burns (above) their work undeniably speaks for itself. We’re so excited to announce their stunning rebrand to Moon&Back. Invigorated by the love stories that have taken them to the four corners of the globe, gathering their indelible beauty, they now bring the same breathtaking cinematography they are known for, with a deepened passion and level of experience, to Moon&Back.

Planning a wedding in a practical sense is an exercise in event management, and it's one that can be extremely daunting for a bride and groom having never planned an event.

Once wedding planning begins, it can certainly be overwhelming realising how many areas require covering off, and how difficult it can be to find exactly what you need. There can be a tendency for providers to accept the business that comes their way, and then to fall back on what they know or are experienced at, ahead of executing a specific brief or creative direction. We spend every single day making this delineation so that the people we work with and recommend can be trusted.
One such provider is Edwards & Co. They’re the kind of hair stylists you can take a runway shot to with the confidence they’ll execute to perfection (because half the time they’re the ones working the shows!) and are our personal go-to’s in Sydney, Melbourne and Byron Bay. To view more of their incredible portfolio of work, and to enquire about booking Edwards & Co for your wedding see here.

Forever entranced by the cosmic pull of rare gems, the endless ways they're artfully and meaningfully set, and the power and beauty they're imbued with. Mementos of the heart, fallen from the sky, plucked from the earth, and masterfully imagined as jewelled adornment, it's little wonder precious gems are so inextricably bound to the ceremony of marriage.
