Tanya and Jan, a couple living in Toronto, contacted me as Wedding Videographer for their Destination Wedding in Italy, exactly in the province of Siena in the beautiful green oasis of Villa Castelletto.
Since the beginning, I was asked for a video short of a few minutes that would be not overly romantic, not staged, and would breathe dynamism and authenticity.
It was important for them to focus the wedding film on the ritual and the party organized together with their 80 guests.
“Your style is exactly what we’re looking for. We don’t want our video to feel staged or overly romantic. We want it to feel captivating but authentic.”From Tanya’s mail
Their wedding was a day filled with fun, at times hilarious and even exciting moments.
During the dinner, family and friends intervened by giving Tanya and Jan a personal thought. Some friends even sang a rap song written especially for them!
All these elements greatly stimulated my creativity, resulting in a 10-minute Wedding Film. Wrapping it all up in a few minutes was a very interesting challenge!
Having full trust from the couple, I broke all chronological patterns and followed, almost instinctively, the narrative and emotional sense of events.
