The Hodgetts family became official.
Lots of words running through my head as I sit to write this blog post but I’m pretty sure none will sufficiently do.
Gemma had been following my work for about 3 years before getting in touch. That’s a big deal for me and a ton of expectation.
I trust I did your story justice.
Thanks for watching.
a massive thanks to the wonderful Dee from pink & purple passing on my details. Gemma’s best friend + florist + planner extraordinaire.
Maggie: “Oh hey Matt. When Luke proposed, he gave his phone to the restaurant waiter to film it. Do you think you’d be able to use it at all?”
Me: “Ummm…hell yes.”
Here’s Maggie and Luke’s feature film.
Thanks for watching.
“see I believe life is all about making memories.
some of them are good, some of them are bad, but all of them sculpt who we are today.
and to make a memory stick – to make it really last…
often it has to be something different and unique”
lisa and michael’s wedfest: a true reflection of who they are.
their favourite memories, concerts, markets, food stalls, festivals and celebrations.
“as a young man I never really thought about my wedding.
I always knew I wanted to get married but, that’s really as far as it went.

the best woman I have ever met in my entire life.
I feel blessed. thank you”

we’re all connected.
it’s been said many times before by people much wiser than me, but it’s true. peel the layers back and at our cores we’re all essentially the same.
sarah and james are both extraordinarily high achievers.
to hear him articulate so well about how surreal an experience it was to be in front of family + friends was something else.
weddings are one of the few life events where this sameness we all share is in plain sight. they’re the great equaliser, and it’s a beautiful thing.
