Congratulations to all Brides and Grooms

We bring almost 20 years experience in Television Post Production, Weddings and Performance Videography with numerous Wedding, Concert, Television and Feature Film credits to your wedding day.

I am always asked what lured me from the world of television to the elegant world of wedding videography. The logical simlarities are that both require a certain degree of obsessive attention to detail but the real answer is pretty simple. My earliest recollections, as a 4 year old growing up in Sydney, are of brides spinning elegantly around my mothers bridal and evening wear design studio as my mum diligently made final design decisions. Needless to say, my formalwear was always well taken care of as I was growing up, as was my beautiful wedding couture. Many years later my parents established the beautiful Lauralla Guest House in Mudgee and created an award winning wedding venue.

I am always inspired by a wedding day

Your fantastic.....

I'm in love with my dvd's and have watched them over 10 times already. Julia was fantastic, she is meant to be in front of the camera, she is just a little actress, loves to perform.

My nephews told me today that they were sad, cos they want to do the wedding again, they loved watching it and i think now thats their favourite dvd.

Thanks for everything
