Over the years, many wedding traditions have been forgotten or sometimes re-imagined. Let's take a look at one of the all time favourite traditions which happen on a wedding day. The cutting of the cake. While there may be a whole bunch of things to consider when cutting the cake, the height, the thickness, missing the cake topper, one thing remains the same. And that is, to never allow the knife to touch the bottom. Every wedding we shoot has at least one guests who will yell this out. Usually the traditionalist older generation. While almost every bride and groom cut the cake down the centre, you can also choose to cut it from the side as that will allow for much easier slicing. When is the best time to cut your wedding cake? You can cut your cake at anytime during the day but it's best to schedule it in when all eyes are on you. The oldies love this moment so let them get a photo or video as well once we've done our shot. HINT - Cut it again in the same place to make it look legit.
Take a look at Emily and Mitch here. Their approach is very simple but elegant. Using all four hands they don't once look at the camera to smile, instead they just have fun. Not only do they do an awesome job of cutting the cake but they position themselves in a way which allows us to film the action. We have to admit to a little bit of direction on our part but how good does this footage look! We love couples who can forget "the done thing" and create their own day by hand picking the suppliers which suit them best. Keep your eyes peeled for the entire film which was shot at Bimbadgen Palmers Lane in the Hunter Valley of NSW. We've shot a few Super 8 weddings here and it's an amazing property, open fields, best sunsets ever, and guests love it.
