Couple offer $3,500 for very weird wedding request – as no one they know will do it

Whoever did it would have an interesting night!

A couple have raised eyebrows after posting a very unusual request for their wedding night.

A job advert, posted anonymously on bark.com, outlines exactly what they want.

Together since 2016, they said they’re enjoying putting the finishing touches to their big day this September, but one aspect is proving tricky to fulfill. 

One of the things we need is a bit unique, but we’re hoping someone will be able to help, reads the advert. 

Both myself and my fiancé believe that your ‘wedding day’ shouldn’t just be limited to a day, and actually your wedding night is just as important. Obviously during the day, everyone has photographers and videographers etc capturing all of the days moments and memories, but it’s not a norm for someone to have that on their wedding night.

Since we got engaged we’ve both been in agreement that we want a videographer to film our wedding night, but unfortunately we haven’t been able to find anyone willing, or who we’ve felt comfortable enough around. We originally asked our day videographer to do it, but he said he didn’t feel comfortable doing it, and that it wasn’t something he’d done before.

The couple, who are getting wed in the Cotswolds in the UK,  go on to admit that they know it’s a ‘weird’ request and that they’ve set aside £2000 (around $3500 AUD) in order to make it happen. Going into detail, they’ve even included the artistic style they’d like the video to take.

We’ll need you to start at around 1am and work until around 3am. But this might change depending on what time the party finishes etc. We’d like a mixture of still and moving shots, and we also want it all to look professional, so any lighting in the room etc will need to be sorted beforehand.

But they have made it clear it will be for their eyes only. 

We don’t want the tape to go anywhere at all and it’s just for personal use between me and my fiancé, they wrote.
