We hope you all had a lovely weekend celebrating Mother’s Day! We had a fantastic time filming five different weddings. One highlight was Neve and John’s Saturday wedding in warm, sunny Autumn weather. The day started with a beautiful ceremony in front of friends and family at St Eustahious Church followed by a night of wonderful food and plenty of dancing at Carousel. Our expert filmmakers Nathan and Mark were on hand to cover proceedings and they can’t wait to reveal their finished wedding video later this week. Stay tuned!

PRW had a busy weekend, filming a extraordinary total of 8 weddings!
One of the happy couples, Amy and Gavin celebrated their Chuppah at Victoria Gardens before dancing the night away at their reception at Showtime Events. Amy was a stunning bride in a lace-adorned gown, lovely to film and always smiling and Gavin was a well-spoken groom, delivering kind words to his family and friends.
The couple were an absolute delight to film and we wish Amy and Gavin, along with all the couples we filmed over the weekend, best wishes for their adventures ahead!

PRW had the pleasure of shooting for Michael and Christine who celebrated a lovely wedding with family and friends in a Daylesford convent over the weekend. They even had relatives who travelled from as far as Scotland to attend their special day!
Meeting each other at work, and having been together for 10 years, Michael and Christine chose to marry at the place where Christine had attended primary school.
We had an enjoyable time filming for such an easy-going and bubbly couple and we wish Michael and Christine all the best for their future ahead.
Purple Ribbon Weddings has had the pleasure of filming at the beautiful Leonda by the Yarra over the past few months.
The elegant Hawthorn venue boasts a sleek and sophisticated function space, catering for small parties within the intimate Garden Room and large groups in their grand ballroom. Bordered by lush greenery and the tranquil Yarra River, Leonda on the Yarra makes a grand location for any wedding.
Leonda by the Yarra is a stunning location and we hope to revisit soon for further filming.
Purple Ribbon Weddings has filmed at Campbell Point House on several occasions and each time we are blown away by the grand design of the mansion and the spectacular views of the surrounding landscape.
The lakeside mansion on the Bellarine Peninsula is a private estate with vast reception areas, accommodation and outdoor settings.
We love the look of the venue and have been thrilled with the resulting videos, including our three most recent videos featuring Chris and Lucy, Cole and Simone, and Richard and Georgia:
In an effort to better understand our clients we recently went over our sales data to work out the average amount of time couples book their wedding videos in advance.
The below graph charts the number of weddings booked according to how far off the wedding date is.
It’s interesting viewing for anyone worrying about the ideal time to start planning a wedding.
FYI, the overall average was eight months.
