Issue 5 / March 2010
Welcome to the Tiare Films newsletter. A big 'hello' to all of the couples and exhibitors we met at the North City Wedding & Bridal Expo in January.
North City Wedding & Bridal Expo - Supreme Exhibitor Award
In January the North City Wedding & Bridal Expo showcased the fantastic range of wedding services available in the Wellington Region.
We were busy on the day - both meeting couples at our stand and filming the live video feed for the fashion show. If you watched the show you may also have seen some of our films projected on the big screen. Those highlight films can be seen on our website.
The end of the day held a special surprise for us, as we were awarded the 'Digitex Supreme Exhibitor Site Award' for the Tiare Films stand - that's our blue stand above, top-right.
We'd like to thank Justine's mum Janine for helping us man our stand at the expo.
If you picked up The New Zealand Bridal Handbook from the expo, inside you'll find a range of special offers from exhibitors including a discount on our Pearl package when you book before May 31. Also see our ad on the inside back cover featuring Alex and Kevin's wedding in Rarotonga
We next exhibit at the Wellington Wedding Show, Sun 2 May 2010, 10am-4:30pm, TSB Arena. Come and talk to us about your wedding plans.
Crystal bouquets... by Robbie
One of the best things about exhibiting is finding other great wedding services. In Porirua we met Robyn Carter from By Robbie who offers a contemporary (and lasting) take on the traditional wedding bouquet.
Robyn works with crystal stems and genuine Swarovski crystals in much the same way as cut flowers. Working solely with crystals, or a combination of cut flowers and crystal stems, these bouquets dance and shimmer as they catch the light.
A bride with ceremonies in more than one country can carry the same bouquet, combine crystal stems with local seasonal flowers, or have their bouquet transformed into a stunning hairpiece. Pure crystal posies are also perfect for those with allergies.
The By Robbie bridal collection also includes crystal hairpieces and hair threads, button-holes, wrist sprays and posies for flower girls.
To view a selection of designs see the By Robbie website.

Planning your reception - with videography in mind
In the months to come we'll be publishing a series of articles about wedding videography - in time for the 2010/2011 wedding season. The first is all about planning your reception and speeches - with videography in mind.
Speeches and toasts are a chance to share stories, memorable moments from your lives, courtship and adventures as a couple. We cover: when to use a microphone; planning table layout, lighting and decorations; and public speaking techniques.
