Gemma & Michael
Gemma Wellard and Michael Flanagan were married 17 November 2015. Gemma was the Maid of Honour at a wedding I did earlier in March 2015. They got ready in different suites at The Rydges Hotel, North Sydney. The ceremony was at St Thomas' Anglican Church and the reception was held at Curzon Hall, Eastwood. What impressed me was Michael's speech that evening. It was so honost and heart-felt I could not help but
be moved by it.
A Comment from the Bride
“Hi Steve, I absolutely love the highlights video! I've shared it on Facebook and have gotten so many wonderful comments and have shown people that don't have Facebook and they have all said its the perfect video.”
Filming the speeches
For the speeches I had one camera on the speaker (in this case the Best Man - top middle image), one camera on the bride and groom, and a roving camera (with a telephoto lens) looking for emotion from the audience. Hopefully we would see some laughter or tears or both. The Isabella Room at Curzon Hall had good lighting and acoustics. I filmed all the speeches and the different camera angles were later edited together. One of the best speeches was from the Mother of the Groom.
