A MOMENT WITH: Rachael & Darcy – Whitford Wedding Films
How did you both decide videography was the right path for you?
As actors and filmmakers, we both share a love for film. Rachael’s mum worked for years in the wedding industry, which sparked the idea that the world of weddings was where we could put our skills to good use.
Can you tell us a bit about yourselves, and what you like to do in your spare time?
Darcy is an actor and is passionate about all things creative, he also loves the Melbourne lifestyle of coffee, brunches, theatre and keeping fit.
Rachael is also an actor and a writer, she’s even about to start a job writing for the beloved tv show Neighbours. Between filming weddings, she can usually be found in a yoga class, at a café or listening to a great podcast.
What is your favourite part about your work?
We have the amazing privilege of being able to share in one of the best days of the couples’ lives. Getting to capture it perfectly so they can remember it forever is extremely rewarding.
What do you do to prepare for each wedding?
At least a couple of weeks before each wedding, we meet with the couples to get to know one another. The day before, we charge all the batteries and double (and triple!) check that we’ve packed everything.
Are there any ceremonies you have been a part of that been particularly special to you? Can you tell us about it?
We had the pleasure of filming the vow renewals for two very close friends of ours – Lisette and Melissa. This was early on in our videography career, so it was extra special to have them put their faith in us.
Is there anything exciting or new happening for your business this year, or any future plans?
As a new business, every month brings new growth and exciting opportunities, from getting our business cards printed, to creating our website.
In the future, we are looking forward to continuing to grow our brand, having our own studio, and filming at more amazing venues, as well as meeting more great couples.
What is your advice for couples getting married?
You’ll be putting so much hard work and effort into making your wedding amazing, remember to enjoy it!
What are you excited about for the expo?
Meeting new couples and hearing about their exciting wedding plans! Also be able to network with other amazing vendors in the wedding industry. We can’t wait!
