Paradise Cove in Malibu Makes the Perfect Anniversary Party Setting

by | Sep 18, 2019 | Destination, France

My clients are my number one focus. Everything I do is inspired by them, their wedding and their story. One of my favourite things about my job is receiving amazing feedback about their films.

“Emma took our vision and made it into a film, beyond what we could imagine. Her BBC background was obvious in her professional but personable approach but also in her stunning work and attention to detail. Her passion, energy and great sense of humour fitted our weekend perfectly and she became part of the family.”

Jane and Chuck’s words meant so much to me and then they sent me an invitation to film their wedding after-party…. in Malibu, Los Angeles.

As Jane put it: “See what happens when you are that good and you bond with the family!? Can’t get rid of you! Hahaha”

Their wedding celebration party took place at the Calamigos Ranch – nestled in the heart of the Santa Monica mountains in Malibu wine country.

Calamugos is a Chumash Indian word that means ‘Come As My Brother, Come as My Friend’.

The venue’s Redwood Room, where the party took place, is full of rustic charm.

Their film is a fusion of that celebration, a beach party on Paradise Cove the following day, their wedding in France and few other extra special moments from their family thrown in.

And it looks like from their recent email, they loved this film too.

“Oh my gosh – laughed and cried again (even Chuck!) – this was absolutely amazing!! I cannot believe you got all those other video clips and then the interviews with the kids! Sneaky you! All we can say is WOW, thank you. We are SO glad it worked out for you to attend again, we are so happy to have found you. I just wish you could be here to watch everyone’s reaction when we view it with the rest of the family. We are going to share this weekend. You are so creative, again beyond our expectations. You’re the Best!”

And, for those that missed the original film of their story, here’s a bit of background. After 17 years together, Jane and Chuck decided it was time to ‘tie the knot tighter’.

They travelled all the way from California to Divajeu – a small village in the Drôme Valley in the south east of France – for their beautiful and romantic destination wedding.

Le Domaine de Vincenti, their chosen venue, is an elegant, peaceful and relaxed private estate belonging to a close friend of the bride’s parents.

The estate does not normally host weddings but was happy to accommodate Jane and Chuck on their special day – a second marriage for both of them, and a small and intimate occasion with immediate family and a handful of friends.
