We just wanted to send you a little note regarding our experience of you as our wedding videographer on 14th June…
Although we had considered a video when we started our planning, we got some quotes and samples through but we weren’t sure we liked exactly what we saw. These were things like, awkward moments with guests having being made to leave messages and a home movie style which most put us off.
When Kevin (who payed for the video as a gift) explained it would be a short film capturing more the feel of the day rather than a blow by blow home movie style, then we got intrigued and asked if he had any samples which he showed us next time we were round his. WOW we thought when we saw them!!!
Imagine our surprise when what he showed us, took us into the moment of someone else’s love story and left us with a feeling of exactly how they felt about each other. From then on, we were pretty excited!
It can be daunting on your wedding day meeting a stranger for the first time whilst your in your PJ’s with your bridesmaids having just rolled out of bed, let alone someone with a camera who would be watching you all morning. From the moment you opened that door, we felt at ease. All of us carried about our morning and after a few minutes, we almost became oblivious to your work that was going on, completely comfortable and it soon felt like we were around someone that we had known for a while. Likewise with our photographer being someone who always works alone we hoped the 2 of you would get along and again no worries needed, mostly down to yourself adapting, helping and just being really easy to get along with and the 2 of you worked in sync. Throughout the entire day we felt relaxed, mostly in our own little bubble and you never felt like an intrusion.
The teaser clip Kevin has sent us to watch from our sunbeds was incredible Phil!! From the first second of watching, we felt all the weight and emotion from that day come flooding back and it took us to a moment in time that we thought we couldn’t relive in the same way…from the morning time where we could each see what the other was getting up to, to seeing our first moments together which was all so much more than we had hoped for and yet it isn’t even the finished article!
Everytime you left the bridal room that morning and whenever we talked about you throughout the day, we couldn’t stop saying what a lovely genuine guy you are which really goes a long way especially when your in such intimate moments with people you dont know.
Your work speaks for itself and you have an eye for much more than videography but who you are as a person goes a long way to the type of service you provide.
We cannot wait to see our finished film and share it with as many people that will let us!
Thank you doesn’t seem enough but be assured that anyone who ever asks us about videography (or even those who dont) will be hearing everything we have just said about you.
PS. your kind words about Lotte’s dress down in the fields will stay with her forever 😁
A massive thanks again Phil!!
Steve & Lotte.
