We went to the much enjoyable Melbourne city a few months back to film this cute and sweet couple’s prewedding film. What we love the most from doing prewedding film is how we get to know the couple much deeper before the wedding day arrives. Usually during the filming we would get to know not only the couple but also their friends and families that are involved in their story/journey as a couple. This is exactly what happened with jon and alvina. During the actual wedding day we were much more relaxed and comfortable around them and the people around them which is very helpful to be less intimidating with our cameras.
Jon and Alvina came to know each other through their yogurt cafe business “Cacao Green” They met for the first time during the first business meeting which we illustrate in the film. We can see how they really complete each other. Jon is the more quite type while Alvina is the one with more bubbly personality. She loves all things girly… at least thats what I perceive of her.. lol… she does have great taste of choosing the things they put in their house. We were constantly checking out the little bits and pieces of homewares and furniture that they have in place. The rabbit doll in the film is called the Labbit doll and alvina happen to love it so much and Jon bought it for her as a gift, hence why we named the film, Labbit love.
The filming went very smooth with great weather and just having melbourne as the backdrop of the story just made everything full of character with the trams and the architectures and coffee cultures. And we also had great time playing with DORA.. their super cute and smart dog which is featured quite heavily in the final edit just because we couldn’t help it.
Thanks so much guys for having us (twice) to your city. We are grateful for the experience getting to know you guys and just basically having fun capturing your stories. We hope that this little piece of story will be one of the top playlist in your household especially by your kids
