KEVIN & MICHELLE / Wedding

Red…..

Red is…

… Luck.

… Life.

… Love.

The Chinese revere the colour red for its auspiciousness. It represents prosperity and joy. It signifies health and happiness. To the world over, red symbolises passion and love.

I’ve written before that Kevin and Michelle are a passionate, romantic couple, always in search of perfection. The day of their wedding was no exception, with everything planned right down to the last detail, from the traditional tea ceremony and exchange of vows to the more personalised touches that made Kevin and Michelle’s wedding truly special. The only part they hadn’t factored in was the arrival of our crew at Kevin’s house – I think it’s safe to say that it’s the first time that I’ve turned up in the morning when the groom was still asleep!!

It’s easy to see how much thought and care went into Kevin and Michelle’s wedding; among all the special moments that took place that day, the most memorable ones for me include a song written by Kevin which he performed that evening for Michelle, Kevin’s mum cooking a couple of course for the evening banquet (which we were unlucky enough to have missed out on trying!) and the newly-wed couple tripping the light fantastic on the dance floor.

All these memorable moments and more culminated in an extraordinary day for an extraordinary couple with whom we’ve become fast friends. I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Kevin and Michelle all the best for the future.

Making ‘The List’

I’m in the business of telling other people’s stories, whether it be capturing the special moments of a happy couple’s wedding day or making a corporate video, so when it comes to telling my own, it feels a little… unusual, to say the least.

Hollie Allman, Editor of The List, contacted me recently with an idea for a feature she wanted to write in her magazine on local entrepreneurs. I was honoured to have been shortlisted as a candidate for the article… and then I realized that I would have to talk about myself.

Luckily, I’d started writing this blog, which gave me a head start and helped me get my thoughts together. Hollie had sent a detailed guideline of how she had envisioned the article, styling it in the form of a diary, and included some pointers as to what to include in each section. Ironically, it turns out that the most challenging part of this experience was providing a photo of myself!

I’d like to thank Hollie at The List for her patience and support. If you’d like to read all about Johnny Productions’ humble beginnings, check out the new issue of The List, out in stores now!
