Sheldon + Sukhi – Extended Highlight Video

Here at Ring Tail Films, we do a LOT of Indian Weddings! We love spending the week getting to know these families and are privileged enough to get to celebrate with them.

Sheldon and Sukhi’s wedding in May started our year off with a bang (possibly because it included confetti cannons and indoor fireworks at the reception)!

Jeff + Jessica – Wedding Video – Same Day Edit

 

This Same Day Edit is filled with the perfect mix of goofy and sentimental moments. We cannot wait to get started on the full highlight video with sound bites from the reception! We couldn’t help but laugh at some of the stories being told and we can’t wait to share that with all of you!

Both Jessica and Jeff’s vows were beautifully written and delivered in front of their closest family and friends at the Winspear Centre downtown Edmonton (those who made it, of course, despite the many road closures for the parade happening down the street at the exact same time — insert the behind the scenes video of two wedding videographers running 5 blocks carrying all of their gear through a parade to make it to the ceremony on time here).

Again we worked with a fabulous photographer, Barbara Rahal Photography, who captured this couple’s special day alongside us.

Keep an eye out for the full highlight video which will also feature decor by J’Adore Design and Events.

Congratulations Jessica and Jeff!

Tina + Satinder – Same Day Edit

 

It took us a while to get this video uploaded after our office was struck by lightning and we lost internet for a few days. But back up and running now! Take a look back at the Sikh wedding video of Tina and Satinder that we filmed over the long weekend in Edmonton.

I don’t think I’ve ever worked with such a laid back couple, especially at an Indian wedding. A month before the wedding we sat down to talk times and locations for video…and the events themselves were yet to be finalised! It all came together in time however, and you would never have known on the actual day…and the great thing about a relaxed attitude is they were really able to have fun and enjoy the whole wedding, which really shows in the video.

Thanks to Ferdinand from FM Photo Studios who was awesome to work with and was just as relaxed and non-stressed as Tina and Satinder!

Celia + Simon – Same Day Edit

 

Here comes another one! Edmonton. Beautiful summer day. Wedding. Same Day Edit. Enough said? No? Ok so here’s a few more details from the day.

Celia and Simon started off their days downtown hoping that the thunderstorms that have been constant in Alberta this summer wouldn’t dampen their outdoor wedding ceremony that afternoon and things couldn’t have worked out more perfectly. Blushed Beaute did the make-up and hair for the lovely ladies and the boys.. well.. they did it all by themselves. It always amazes me what the bridesmaids put the groomsmen through to get the bride in their tea ceremony games but these boys were such great sports and it made for some hilarious footage!

Celia and Simon wrote some heartfelt vows and picked a beautiful location at the Magrath Mansion for an outdoor ceremony. It was a day filled with fun, laughter, love and a pretty crazy reception party!  Big thanks to Corrina Walker Photography who was awesome to work with again (second time this year!). Some of the gorgeous posed shots in our video are all thanks to her.

This one is a good one, so make sure to check it out!

Ruby + Fitz – Same Day Edit

 

Yes that’s right folks, another Same Day Edit. Definitely seems to be a bit of a trend at this years weddings. Not that I’m complaining…I think it’s a fantastic idea and I love doing them. They always get such a great reception at the reception (yes, that sentence does make sense!) and it’s an awesome way for the couple to look back at what happened as their wedding day draws to a close because it all goes by pretty quickly. It’s also nice for them to see what went on in the morning at the other person’s house as they are getting ready. I particularly liked the rooms at the Rennaisance Hotel…a great place to get ready..so bright with funky furniture and huge windows.

Ruby and Fitz were such a cute couple together…even during the course of just one day you can see how right they are for each other.

Cocktails and Details (who also did Jamie + Harman’s wedding) provided ‘Day Of’ planning services, and Sharon Litchfield was the photographer. I generally have a couple of weddings a year with Sharon and it’s always interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes in her photo shoots to get the amazing shots that she gets.

Chelsea + Jon – Canmore Wedding Sneak Peek

 

We’ve done so many Same Day Edits lately it seemed weird to not do one…so here’s a very short ‘Sneak Peak’ teaser video instead for Chelsea + Jon Pollock and their beautiful Canmore wedding on Sunday. Very impressed with how well behaved the dogs were for the ceremony and photoshoot…wow! Silvertip Golf Course was the location for both the wedding ceremony and the reception, and the Rocky Mountains made for a stunning backdrop as usual. I did Jon’s brother’s wedding a few years ago and it’s always nice to see the same famliy members and see how things are progressing. Thanks for the referral Jessica and Justin!

Man I love mountain weddings…they feel like a destination wedding. If you’re getting married in Canmore, Banff or Lake Louise make sure you give us a shout.

It was nice to finally get to meet and work with Corinna Walker who was the photographer for the day.

Erin + Matt – Same Day Edit

 

This was as our second wedding on July Long Weekend, this time in Calgary with the ceremony at St Albert the Great Church and a beautiful reception at Pinebrook Golf Course. When I asked Erin and Matt if they had any preference in terms of style or if they particularly liked any of our other videos at the pre-wedding meeting the response was “All of them”. Well…no pressure then!

Seeing as this was our Feature Package we had three people on hand for the day…Ewen and Steve as the two main videographers and Deanna on the third camera at the ceremony before she took off to work on their Same Day Edit. Erin had one of the most chill bride preps I’ve ever seen…and everyone was ready about 15 minutes early. That never happens. Mira Pucchi were definitely on top of things with the hair and make-up!

Despite threatening rain the weather held and eventually turned out really beautiful for the photo session and then reception at Pinebrook (highly recommended if you’re having a Calgary wedding but want something with a bit of an outdoor/mountainy feel). Christy Swanberg was fantastic to work with and I’m looking forward to seeing some of her shots from the photoshoot. Particularly the sunset one she took off in the golf cart for with Erin and Matt along with Steve hanging off the back!

I can’t wait to put the full video together for Erin and Matt..I got some great shots of golden hour cocktails and ice cream outside the reception…and there were some great speeches to include as well. Stay tuned for this one!

The wedding planner was Sonia from Enriched Events in Calgary…and she did a great job. She was particular helpful in making sure we were all sorted at the reception and for playing the Same Day Edit. In fact the staff at Pinebrook were also very helpful with that which is sometimes rare at a reception.

Harman + Jamie – Same Day Edit

 

Where to begin! This wedding was the kick off to July Long Weekend. And man…it turned out to be a long weekend. But we do what we do because we love making beautiful films…and nothing is more beautiful than a good looking couple, great looking bridal party and lovely bunch of family and friends having fun over two days of wedding celebrations.

Jamie and Harman celebrated in traditional Sikh style under very stormy skies on the first day. I love seeing two different cultures come together in this way. The second day was a ring exchange at the gorgeous venue of Northern Bear Golf Course and an amazing party at the Meridean banquet hall. I think this is the first time I’ve seen a group of people able to keep with an Indian dance party! Everyone was giving it on the dance floor.

This wedding also held a couple of firsts for me…first time I have seen the bride and bridesmaids put plastic bags over their heads to get dressed (yes that was as comical as it sounds)…and first time I’ve seen white bridesmaids dresses (beautiful idea by the way).

Jamie picked a great group of vendors…and this video wouldn’t be the same without their work. Biggest thank you of all to the amazing, gorgeous and talented Danielle from Lucier Photography. She was so great to work with…she was never in the way…super helpful…and many of the poses and shots from the photoshoot are courtesy of her skills. I can’t wait to see her finished photos..I got a sneak peak in her camera and they are going to be amazing. Go hire her!

Sunita from Sen Studios provided the make-up and hair wizardry for Jamie (this girl seems to do the make-up for every wedding I film…I don’t know how she manages it). Her work was stunning as always.

Jenna from Cocktails and Details planned the wedding and did the decor (the Meridian looked amazing!)

Nicole from Blush Beauty did the bridesmaids make-up.

VJ the DJ provided the beats at the reception.

 

Nav + Priya – Same Day Edit, Victoria BC

What can I say… we had the best time shooting Nav and Priya’s wedding in beautiful Victoria, BC!

We started off filming the bride and groom’s maiyan ceremonies, and this couple was not afraid to get covered! Priya was all smiles and Nav had a clever little trick up his sleeve for added protection from those overzealous friends and family members.

The ceremony day started off bright and early with makeup artist Erica Harris making sure the bride was ready to go. Tucked away on the hillside, the ceremony took place at the Khalsa Diwan Sikh Temple which had a beautiful view from the temple entrance out over Victoria to the ocean.

After the ceremony, we headed over to one of the most majestic photoshoot locations I have ever seen. Hatley Castle at the Royal Roads University was the perfect location for this regal photoshoot and provided some of our favourite shots from the trip. Huge thanks to Priya and Nav and their photographer Sohal Photography for taking us there and making it a memorable part of our time in Victoria.

At the Doli we saw a couple of great fresh ideas including the outdoor threshold! There was so much room for activities! We also saw a new game for the first time when we made our way back to the groom’s house at the end of the day that involved sticks and a very confused bride and groom. Make sure to watch to the end of the video to see what I am referring to.

Everyone involved was so great to work with and all of the smiles of family and friends made our job of capturing this special occasion so easy. We felt so welcome here and will definitely be back! Congratulations Nav and Priya and thank you so much for letting us be a part of this!

Monica + Sam – Feature Highlight Video

 

We had so much fun working with this Monica and Sam and their families on an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day in May. Alberta weather can be so unpredictable but a 28 degree day in Edmonton was not a bad way to start off wedding season!

Sam and Monica started off their wedding day with some games and the traditional tea ceremonies. The bridesmaids began by testing Sam’s knowledge of Monica and their relationship, and if he failed, he was punished. The punishment (Have you ever heard of a bitter melon ice cube?) definitely provided for some priceless facial expressions which are featured in this highlight video.

The couple then headed over to their breathtaking venue, the Oasis Centre, where they were led through a heartwarming ceremony. We were able to capture some magical footage with the entire bridal party at the photo shoot with Nicole Ashely Photography in the river valley where we found some cherry blossom trees in bloom. Back at the Oasis Centre for the reception, the celebration and the games continued. We even got to see a game that we have NEVER seen before at a wedding (and we have been to a few) where Monica and Sam learned how to “dance” from another married couple. If you would like to see two happily married couples shaking their tail feathers and dare I say, twerking, make sure you watch this video until the end.

Congratulations Monica and Sam! It was such a pleasure working with you as well as everyone involved. We hope that you enjoy your wedding video and wish you all the best!

James + Tania – Same Day Edit Video

 

It wouldn’t be a May Long Weekend in Alberta without a little snow. The weather failed to put a damper on James and Tania’s special day though and James still ended up wearing shorts for a portion of the morning (not totally by choice). Huge thanks to Sofia for taking us to some great photo-shoot locations! Gasoline Alley in Heritage Park served as a beautiful venue for both the ceremony and reception, which you get to see a little bit of in this Same Day Edit. We got to have a little bit of fun with the cake toppers before the ceremony because, well, what adult doesn’t like playing with lego. Congratulations James and Tania! Thank you so much for including us on your special day.
