Life truly is full of surprises. Such a mantra has become a running theme for us here at SDE Weddings, Toronto’s premier wedding videography, cinematography and photobooth group. And in no other wedding have we witnessed ‘surprise’ on a grander scale as was our experience with Ellie & Matt, on their surprise wedding which took place this previous Autumn season, on a memorable October 18th, 2014 in Beamsville, Ontario. Ellie & Matt, a couple with a creative streak in their senses, had planned out an elusive surprise for their aptly prepared DIY-themed wedding day, to the delight of our videographers and cinematographers, whose lenses were present to capture every moment of suspense from their guests. Indeed, Ellie & Matt’s wedding day – from filming, preparation and editing – was one of the most creative projects our videographers and cinematographers have come across. Between filming an early morning time-lapse which outlines the events of the day, to the intricacies of how the couples’ -surprise- wedding would unfold, to the overall DIY aesthetic of their wedding, Ellie & Matt’s penchant for craftiness and creativity stood out to our videographers and cinematographers as something we rarely encounter, and something truly worthy of praise. Scroll further and be ‘surprised’ at just how perfect Ellie & Matt’s surprise wedding had turned out, and the many surprises which we encountered on such an unforgettable wedding day.
Earlier in April, Nawaz hired us to film his surprise wedding proposal to his long term girlfriend Zahra. During our initial meeting, we found out that Nawaz works part-time as a wedding photographer. Since Nawaz had a photography background, it was important that we capture this special moment in his life on video and all of its important details. Nawaz had enlisted the help of his friends to decorate his backyard and had also hired a team of photographers to photograph this moment as well.
