During all these years of doing wedding videography and photography, we’ve come across much cross-cultural weddings. A cross-cultural wedding is interesting with its unique touch to portray different customs. It shows that love has no boundaries. Jeremy is a local Chinese with a Taiwanese mum and Joanne is an Eurasian with an Eurasian dad and Filipino mum. For Jeremy, there is the tea ceremony where the couple pays respects to the seniors by serving tea and receive red packets in return. Whereas for Joanne, they have a family party where family members and relatives have wines, cakes, toasting and loads of well wishes for the bride who is leaving the house for the last time as a single. The blending of the 2 cultures gives a unique taste to this beautiful wedding that we have the pleasure of filming.
This is a short wedding videography film based on the true love story of Dylan and Joanne. What’s interesting about this film is that we try to tell their story in a different presentation style and move more in the direction of a short film than a music video or a dramatized documentary and we think it worked out well.
We had great fun shooting this film. As there were many locations to cover, we had to move and shoot fast. For most of the shoots, we were blessed with good weather. However, it started raining when we were about to shoot the 2nd last scene (Dylan’s phone call with his mum in the car). We decided to change the original indoor scene to an outdoor car scene, braving the rain with an umbrella. With Dylan and Joanne in the car on a rainy evening, this further heightens the air of romance of the story.
