Tasmanian Wedding Video // Nikita + Mitch

It was quite difficult being in Brisbane and organising a wedding in Tasmania and trying to find vendors. When we found the Love Lab, it “felt right”. The way you capture a couples love and turn it in to a cinematic experience is right up our alley!! It was SO GREAT working with you!  The team is so easy to work with and I barely noticed you there. You’re like a fly on the wall that captures every intimate detail of the day! When I received my film I cried for the first seven times and watched it on repeat. Then I had a break to finish my wine. Watched it another five times and cried even harder. It was so amazing reliving the best day of our lives through the eyes of the Love Lab. Admittedly, videography was quite the afterthought for us, and we weren’t entirely sure if we even wanted video of the day. Looking at our film, I am 150% happy that we trusted Lewa’s vision and invested in this incredible film.” – Nikita and Mitch


A black wedding dress. A giant, bearded man who could wear “whatever the hell he wants.” Right from the start, Nikita and Mitch were unapologetically themselves. And we loved it.
I tell peeps that our films aren’t aren’t really about the wedding day, but what’s underneath.
Our films encapsulate what marriage looks like for that couple. It’s not about “completing” each other but “adding” to each other; bringing something more powerful to the world as the sum of the individual parts.
When Nikita first got in touch she said they’d be having an intimate non-traditional ceremony with their family at Thalia Haven on the East Coast of Tasmania.
We had the privilege to film them walking down the aisle on a clifftop ceremony overlooking the ocean, her two brothers performing a traditional Māori dance – the ‘haka” – in honour of their roots and heritage.
The only thing more epic than the adventure itself was honouring family and culture. Love should be celebrated, no matter where you come from. And true connectivity creates true happiness.
Nikita and Mitch, you are deeply connected. And it was an honour to witness it.
Thank you for including us.
We felt like family and It’s the first time we’ve been fed a 5-course meal at a wedding! Chur bro!

Tasmanian Wedding Video // Nik + Courtney

In life there are moment that touch you and there are moments that define you.

In their first year together Nik and Courtney experienced hardship when Courtney fell seriously ill.

They faced their deepest fears of losing one another.

During this testing time, their love did not waiver, but grew in strength. Nik showed kindness, compassion and strength in actions and words. He did not leave Courtney’s side and it defined them both.

From that moment they knew they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet. – Rumi

Kind words from the Bride:

Lewa you where amazing! The contact you kept with me throughout the process was excellent! Your attention to detail and organisation rivaled my own and I loved that. I knew that on the day you would capture the most amazing footage. In the lead up to the wedding you and your team felt like part of the family and you seamlessly slipped in and out of depending on the moments. You were so respectful on the day of our feelings and emotional states. I remember you taking the time to check in with us about how we were feeling and if we needed a break. It was refreshing.

Words cannot describe how thankful I am that we made the investment of getting our wedding filmed! It is something I will recommend to any future friends or couples when they decide to get married!! I love that in the future we can show our children our wedding and I cannot thank my best friend for telling me to get a videographer!

 

South Australian Wedding Video // Chloe + Adam

Chloe and Adam (aka Adsy) were amazing to work with.

Their relaxed approach, caring and enthusiastic demeanor gave us space to think creatively. They also chipped in the filmmaking process in getting some surf and drone footage.

Chloe first found out about The Love Lab through a wedding they attended in Tasmania. We were so honoured that our craft resonated with them. They flew us up to Middleton, South Australia and blew our minds with a beach/farm tepee wedding.

EVERYONE in their wedding went above and beyond to make sure we were welcomed. Without their help, this film wouldn’t have been as epic.

We’d like to thank each person who helped:

HAWKEYE IMAGERY (DRONE SHOTS): We are so grateful to Travis from Hawkeye Imagery who shot drone footage (CASA licensed). Your added dimension made this film ethereal.

TOMMY COCKS AND DA BOYS: Thank you to Tommy, Adsy and the lads for getting some surf shots. Your energy was inspiring!

PICTURE HIRE (CAMERA GEAR): A big thanks to Dave from Picture Hire Australia for rigging up the Ronin.

PHOTOGRAPHY: High five to Alice Bell photography and assistant Courtney Mcfarlane for creating visual magic with us on the wedding day.

KATA AND CO (TEPEE AND RECEPTION STYLING): Thank you to Courtney and Simon for being incredible with our lighting requests, you guys made our job so much easier.

CRAB TREE FARM (RECEPTION): Special fist bump to Mick who gave us a grand tour of his property.

WEDDING PARTY: A special thank you to Sarah (maid of honour) for picking us up at the airport and being patient with all our gear and returning some shot bags for us! You are a bloody legend.

Lucy and Bec for picking up Jacob and being so lovely!

Angie (mother of the bride) for the kind gesture of offering petrol money and being an excellent candle/light maker!

BRIDE AND GROOM: A big thank you to Chloe and Adsy for going above in beyond in making sure we were comfortable in our stay in Middleton. Your hospitality and kindness will not be forgotten.

Tasmanian Wedding Video Mona Museum // Kylie + Dan

When we meet couples one of the first questions we ask is “How did you meet?” Kylie and Dan’s response was unique and made me smile. It was puppy love at first sight!

Kylie, a bubbly, loveable young woman in the hair styling industry, noticed a tall, dark and handsome man coming into her salon more regularly than the average customer. He kept dropping in, and Kylie became naturally curious. One day Dan, a suave and impressionable young lawyer, offered to take Kylie’s pet dog, Snooki for a walk.

I don’t want to give away the story, but our video shows you what happens when persistence pays off – often with a lot of laughs along the way! More importantly, we love sharing stories where love meets from chance coincidences. Those moments when someone plucked up the courage to stop and say hi. When two people play a beautiful game of courtship enveloped in mystery and delight.

Kylie and Dan live in Tasmania and chose to marry against the backdrop of incredible Tasmanian landscapes, scenery and architecture. What do you like most about Tasmania? Tell us about your dream island wedding in the comments.
