Canmore wedding films

Canmore and Banff Romantic Winter Wedding

Justin + Georgina were married at St. George’s in the Pines Anglican church in beautiful Banff, Alberta in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The church bells began to ring as the newly weds exited hand in hand as Mr. and Mrs. after the ceremony, something that was perfectly British and a nod to the bride’s English heritage. Watch the film below until the end to hear the bells and see their grand exit!

The couple’s mountain wedding reception took place at Silvertip Resort in Canmore, Alberta where lots of laughs and great food was shared among family and friends. The pavilion at Silvertip Resort was transformed into an elegant, romantic, candlelit soiree by the team at Lynn Fletcher Weddings, who had less than 3 months to plan this wedding and did a phenomenal job which the family was so very appreciative of. The team at Flowers by Janie, worked closely with Georgina and her mum to create florals with an english garden feel and decorated the fireplace mantel, the arbour, head table and all the guest tables with fresh flowers in a palette of deep red, pinks and navy. The three tiered cake topped with a pair of gold glittered deer was designed by Kake by Darci in Canmore. The couple even had the surprise of watching video clips from family members in England that couldn’t make it to the wedding but wanted to wish the couple well on their wedding day.

As wedding videographers, our favourite part of the day was the getting ready/detail shots of both the bride and the groom (Georgina’s gown from Pearl + Dot was stunning btw)! Seeing the couple interact with their parents and wedding attendants prior to the busyness of the wedding ceremony + reception is also a favourite element to film. The first ‘No Look’ (separate blog about this coming soon!) was a first for me as I have shot ‘First looks’ before, but I loved this concept and it felt very intimate. There is so much emotion in the hours and minute leading up to the ceremony that we highly recommend having us there to capture these special moments. A shout out to the teams from Hedkandi Salon + Butter Beauty Parlour for doing an incredible job on the bride + bridesmaid’s hair + makeup!

The photo + film session between the ceremony and reception was another incredible part to the day. Calgary and Canmore wedding photographer Geoff Wilkings directed the session and had the perfect location in mind. We were able to work with Geoff and capture incredible mountain vistas and of course the beautiful bride and groom on film. We love filming weddings in Canmore and Banff because of the spectacular scenery and the breathtaking videos it allows us to create for the couple to watch for years to come.

It was an honour for us (Oscar + Mark) to be able to spend the day getting to know both Justin + Georgina and their family and friends and to film their special day. See the feature film below from their mountain wedding day and scroll further down to see the shortened 1 minute highlight video.

Rain on your wedding day is a good thing

Rain on your wedding day can be better than a bright, sunny, cloudless day! Don't believe me...keep reading to find out why!

Cloudy skies highlight the natural colours of you and your surrounding and make the colours appear more vibrant rather than washed out. Having a sky full of clouds (with or without rain) also creates softer shadows which are easier to photograph and film under rather than harsh, direct light from the sun.

Rain also gives the day a fresh feel and a calming vibe. The aroma of nature can be enjoyed more and the senses of your guests will be heightened. Rain drops also look great on camera and the cooler weather unconsciously makes the couple snuggle closer together for warmth, creating more natural, romantic and intimate moments for photographers and videographers to capture.

Also, umbrellas, can we take a minute to stay how romantic it is to see a couple together under the same umbrella! 

Dan and Cassandra were married at Silvertip Resort this past July and they had a mix of sun, then a heavy downpour and some light rain in between. A couple of my favorite shots from their teaser video included rain; the light rain drops on the turquoise pond and the rain falling on them when they are walking together with their umbrella. Take a look and see for yourself, rain is a good thing on your wedding day!

Heli Wedding in Canmore

On Thursday July 5th Mandy + Jason were married at Silvertip Resort surrounded by close family and friends. They wanted some epic mountain photos and video for their bridal portraits and so Oscar of Castaño Films and wedding photographer Darren Roberts joined the couple aboard Alpine Helicopters for a two hour flight. Their love was captured in photo and film along with incredible mountain vistas of the Rockies. View their highlight video below.
