The National Museum of Australia is one of the most iconic Australian wedding ceremony and reception venues. The Garden of Australian Dreams was where Sidi and Sam held their outdoor reception, and they danced under the stars after dinner. We had the privilege of filming and photographing Sidi and Sam’s summer wedding at the National Museum. As videographers and photographers, we couldn’t possibly ask for a more interesting wedding venue! It was an emotional ceremony as you’ll see in their wedding video below. The wedding vows that Sidi and Sam shared with each other were personal and heartfelt, here’s an excerpt:
“When I told you I was falling for you, I had no idea how far it would go. Thank you for being you, for your warmth of heart, your love, kindness and laughter. You’re my world, and I vow to always be devoted to you, and I offer myself completely to you, everything I am and everything I will be. I promise to tell you when that’s one McMuffin too many, and support you when you decide to eat it anyways along with mine … You have the most beautiful and kind soul, and I’m so proud to be walking beside you in this wonderful journey that is life” – part of Sam’s vows to Sidi
“Sam my love, thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for making the world more solid beneath my feet, and lifting my spirit higher in the air. I vow to be your family, and to be your partner in everything you do. I promise that you will carry no burden alone, and that together we will weather any storm … I believe that life is a series of choices, and Sam my great life changing love, I choose you. And I’ll choose you over and over again, without pause, without doubt, in a heartbeat, I vow to keep choosing you, and thank you for choosing me.” – part of Sidi’s vows to Sam
The museum is the ideal venue in Canberra with it’s incredible architecture, central location and sweeping views. Broadbean Catering are the masters behind the delicious food and outstanding service. They source local produce to create menus that reflect the season and support local farmers and suppliers. There are several other areas the museum offers for hire – the amphitheatre and lakeside deck, the friends lounge, the peninsula room, the bay window and hall. So you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to your wedding!
Thanks to AnGus from Fallow Rose Wedding Co for working with us and filming all the aerial footage.
