Shaun + Rochelle

The Rain Decision
Storytelling - Weather Bomb - Heartbeat

Forest Wedding Video

Filmed by Jared and Jay

13 minutes before the ceremony was scheduled to begin, Shaun had a big decision to make.

Do we cancel the entire forest wedding ceremony and move indoors, or do we take our chances and hope the predicted weather bomb fails to hit? With no way of knowing if the rain would hold, Shaun’s heart spoke louder than his head and they made the call to stick with plan A and marry in a forest of pines, rain or shine weather bomb…

So here’s their truly heart-in-mouth forest wedding video, and how despite what conspires around them, they can at least say it was one unique wedding experience!


It was a real honour videoing this wedding. Shaun and his best-man Paul are actually Wedding Videographers themselves! They head up ShaunpaulCreative and make stunning wedding films of their own. So it was pretty special to be able to capture Shaun finally getting to marry his bride!!
