Destination – Hobart Wedding Videography

By | Wedding Videography Blog | No Comments

As we complete the picturesque Hobart Wedding Videography for Jess and Josh at the Beaches Function Centre in Seven Mile Beach, Tasmania – we reflect on the beauty that this little isle has to offer to the discerning destination wedding bride and groom.

Hobart has the right mix of small country feel, with the mod cons of the other Australian cities, so you can still find a well brewed cafe latte, some fudge from the hinterland, or a delicious beer from the fresh, unspoilt Tasmanian waters (that’s in a commercial isn’t it?) without having to battle the traffic, or big city pace.
Macquarie Manor Hobart

Macquarie Manor Hobart

Basing ourselves in the heritage Macquarie Manor, replete with green velour walls, a creaky four poster bed, and mahogany furniture, it was like we stepped back in time. Located close to the Salamanca Markets, and the waterfront, it brought all of the delights of Tassie from yesteryear under the one roof, and would be a great place to base your entire family.

The Drunken Admiral, Hobart

James – The Drunken Admiral

Even though it was packed only 10 minutes from opening time, we were fortunate enough to experience a delectable seafood dinner at the Drunken Admiral, at one of the tables wedged into a maze of small nooks and crannies. With service and food so good, there is no need to explain how it has  been in business for close to 35 years. Before calling it a night, we followed it up by a quick pint at The Squires Bounty. On a warm summer’s evening, Hobart is bustling and buzzing.

Weddings at the Cascade Brewery

Cascade Brewery

No trip to Hobart would be complete without a visit to the Salamanca markets to trial some fudge, before stopping by Cascade Brewery. We were delighted to see a photo of past clients Kylie and Peter posted on their board. Married in late 2011, with Cascade Brewery as the backdrop, Kylie and her groom were blessed with a stunning, sunshine filled day. They chose to arrive in style to their reception, as the guests looked on from above, on a magnificent tall ship, The Lady Nelson, run by the Tasmanian Sail Training Association.

And what about this weekend’s wedding? Whilst we took in the sights, it is no denying that the best part of the trip was the wedding of Jess and Josh. Recommended by fellow firies, Kylie and Peter, we got to enjoy retracing our steps from our previous trip here, meeting the groomsmen for their preparations in the shadows of the Bellerive Oval. Turbo Productions, joined the talented crew of DJ Jamie from Nightlife and Warren the photographer (who specialises in Fire Service shoots) to immortalise the memories of the day.

Jessica and Josh - Hobart Wedding

Jessica and Josh brave the wind and rain on Seven Mile Beach for their photoshoot

Wedding Video Hobart

Umbrellas – a necessity at this outdoor wedding.

Whilst the weather wasn’t kind this weekend in Hobart, the incessant rain didn’t stop the bride and groom from fulfilling their dreams of an outdoor ceremony, and a photo shoot on 7 mile beach, dredging through mud to get the perfect shot.

The rain was constant but eased off just for a moment as the ceremony began, and it only takes a moment for the union of two people. With non-stop dancing at the Beaches Function Centre, in the grounds of the Wyndham Vacation Resort, their reward is jetting off to Sydney for a Pacific cruise around the Polynesian-French islands of New Caledonia. The Turbo Productions team, capturing Hobart Wedding Videography, would like to congratulate Jess and Josh on a magical event.

When in Hobart, we would like to recommend places to see while you are here:

MonaMONA Museum:

With a ferry ride in a camouflaged boat (sporting a cow and some sheep on the back!) being the chosen transport, we were confronted and simultaneously amazed at the exhibitions in this museum, sunken into the cliffs of Hobart.

Bonorong Wildlife SanctuaryBonorong Wildlife Sanctuary:

It doesn’t get much better than cuddling a rescued baby wombat and exchanging obscenities with a sulphur crested cockatoo, oh except for being stalked by some kangaroos and wallabies for a feed. We love the work that Bonorong do for the wildlife here, and how much they love and respect their animals. Anyone in Hobart must make time to drop by.

Home Hill Winery Wedding VideographyHome Hill Winery:

We managed to sneak in a Sauvignon Blanc and a Pinot Noir from this acclaimed winery in the rolling green hills of the Huon Valley. They even have an Alpaca Farm abutting the winery, which we love.  We captured a wedding video here in 2011, and make sure we visit every time we are in Hobart..
