A Surprise Wedding Proposal!!!
Richard Wakefield Richard Wakefield is offline April 27th, 2009, 11:37 AM

Hi all,

I thought you might all like to see something really different I filmed last week.

Indecent Proposal: Magician?s stunning magic does the trick. on Vimeo

(from the blog: Blog Archive Surprise Wedding Proposal - the Outcome!)

I'm not really posting it to obtain technical feedback as I know the filming is all over the place, and that there isn't any creative editing/colouring :)

But it's a bit of fun, and actually quite emotional at the end it has to be said!

______________________________________

Also, 2 other recent clips to share, as i haven't posted any here in ages!:

- Joanne and Peter - Cinematic Wedding Trailer on Vimeo (cinematic wedding trailer - not what we normally do, but thought i'd give it a go)

- BMW Z4 Showcase Film on Vimeo (we filmed this with my assistant's car, on the way to a wedding)



cheers
Richard

Haha! That was great! I once shot a surprise proposal too, and also a surprise wedding where the groom didn't know he was getting married! They played my footage on the news. Stuff like this is why video is priceless.

Wonderful! This made my day. I needed something to break the strain of a crazy Monday at work.

Brilliant, mate, absolutely brilliant. I think that is one of the best proposal stories I have ever heard.

thanks for the comments! i agree, the reactions really were fantastic...it would have been awful if we had turned up and she looked poker faced throughout!

and yes, if only i could clone out myself and the 2nd camera, that would be ideal :)

Oh man! That was fantastic! I haven't seen a better proposal video since my own (naturally I'm biased).

Brilliant idea. I've been trying to pitch the whole "surprise engagement video" idea to grooms, but it is dang hard to get noticed before the proposal has already happened.

Back to your video. The magician did a fantastic job setting things up (and does some great slight of hand too!) and her responses are pure gold!

And yes, I teared up a bit. Darn allergies.
