stop-motion wedding video

I love a good short video, especially when there’s a happy ending. This wedding video is a fun, festive and unique way to document a special day and I love the playfulness of it. Bonnie and Rhys were married at Margaret River in Western Australia and worked with photographers Sophia Bayly and Simon Moore to create this fun stop-motion animation of their wedding. From the opening shots of the walking shoes to the final moments, it’s a beautiful four-minute look into a special day. Thanks to Grace for the tip! xo, grace

    We West Aussies love to play out loud but have to give it to those guys, that little vid takes the cake. The wedding cake!

    Seriously the BEST wedding video I’ve seen and one that could actually be seen again and again. Love it!

  21. Renee loves says:

    This is awesome, love the part where the orange balloons were passed along…. actually loved all of it!!!

  22. Alisha says:

    That was so pefect.

  23. d*s fan says:

    so much better than an actual video! it captures the highlights and the overall feeling of the day, i love it!

    my only suggestion would be to maybe slow down the pace just at one spot right where they said I do or turned to walk down the isle since that was the biggest part of the day.


  24. Jackie Lamas says:

    the cuteset thing ever! i would so want that at my wedding if i get married!

  25. Jessica says:

    Beautiful! The couple’s personalities shine though in this video. Oh the song is “Buffalo” by The Phoenix Foundation – I had to shazam it :)

  26. Norma Jean says:

  27. Clare says:

    Wooo! Yay for the West Aussies! My cousin-in-law actually got married at the winery that this couple got married at.

  33. Ron Ruth says:

    Extraordinarily fun and creative video. Would love to have one of my client’s wedding receptions shot in the stop-motion style. Very cool!

  34. Amazing and yet so special! A truly wonderful way of capturing the essence of the day without having to sit through hours of wedding footage…ahh technology, wish this had have been available when I said “Ido”, saying that it has given me a few ideas for our next big family event…the Canon is going to get a workout! Love it! Thanks DS for showing this.

  35. Julie says:

    Ow, what a sweet little twist on a wedding video, very original and totally adorable…

    This is brilliant and BEAUTIFUL! I am a wedding photographer and it gives me a whole other level of appreciation for this as an art form. Such delight for my eyes!

  38. Chloe says:

    Bayley and Moore <3 I love stop motion! I agree slow down the part where they are walking down the aisle after the 'I do's'… perfection!
