We turned Sept. 21 into a wonderful day, filmed via a GoPro bridal bouquet.
Like many close friends know, we turned Sept. 21 from a dark day in Philippine history marking the announcement of Martial Law in 1972 to a wonderful day in our lives during our wedding in 2014. I opted not to post a celebratory message from last week because I would like to be one with our fellow Filipinos — grieving, protesting — facing another dark time in our history with all the violence and injustice happening in our midst.
It has been over a week, so now, it would be great to celebrate by reliving that wonderful moment via a presentation nearest to my point of view as the bride — one of the three major videos for our wedding — the entire wedding from preps to ceremony to packup through the chronicling of my GoPro bridal bouquet in a 30-minute video.
I filmed and edited my own wedding here, Philip worked on the audio post 🙂 Of course, we’re thankful to our dearest friends who also helped in pulling this off for us.

My most personal edited project to date; our most personal video collaboration to date. Thanks to our frequent collaborator production designer Joy who made my GoPro bridal bouquet inspired by our “Denim Neo-classic” theme. Like the designs for our wedding, the bridal bouquet used recycled materials as well.
I shot my own wedding, and my husband, who frequently collaborates with me on my film and commercial projects as sound engineer and/or scorer, worked on the audio requirements.
For the most part, this wedding film was shot on a first-person perspective, giving a raw, more personal and genuine chronicling of a wedding from the viewpoints of those involved in this special occasion.
Let us share the intimacy of a wedding celebration from the “other” camera perspective — the bride’s. And at some point, the couple’s and the wedding party’s perspectives as well.
Watch the entirety of the professionally edited 29 minutes, 38 seconds of this GoPro-shot wedding or simply give the first 3 minutes a chance, then let’s see if you want to keep up with what’s next…
Best watched in HD (1080p).
Posting this now in this blog after two years, as the edited video was completed in November 2015. Next time, we’ll upload the official wedding video with full coverage of our wedding celebration from the traditional perspective, then there will be a balance between the two points of view.
