Wellington Wedding Video – Simon + Susannah – The Royal Wellington Golf Course

It might not be an obvious first choice, but Simon and Susannah decided to celebrate their wedding at the Royal Wellington Golf Course. Yip, a wedding in the club rooms!

But getting to know their story it made perfect sense. 7 years earlier Simon had an all important round of golf with Susannah’s father William. As Simon tells the story of nervous anticipation and wanting to make a positive impression on Susannah’s father … and how it all pretty much fell apart!  Judging by Simon’s golfing ability anyway.  🙂

Knowing this back story about Simon and William gave us a little more to work with on their wedding day, and a way to make a wedding video truly unique to them.   So this is a little story on Simon vs William, and why The Royal Wellington Golf Club means so much to them both.

… And make sure you watch right to the very end of the film as there’s a little bit of redemption in the embarrassment that is/was Simon’s golf game!!

As well as Simon’s endeavours to impress William, we found out Susannah is totally a daddy’s girl.  (Can you feel the pressure Simon felt now!)

When Susannah was younger, William’s specialty was to cook kidneys on toast for breakfast.  That was his thing.  So come the wedding day the tradition was repeated and a cool way to add a little meaning to their day.
