Rhys & Claire Wedding Video at Hinckley Island

Q As a newly married couple, what would be the best advice you would give to a couple just starting out on their wedding planning journey?

As newly weds we both agree that if your going to get married the most important thing for us was our memories of the day we had various opinions about videography but we wanted to see hear and live those moments again. so make sure you look into it because once done those moments you can’t get back we are so glad we did.

Q What is the best memory you have from your wedding day?

Our best moment from our wedding day was seeing the happy faces and the love that our wedding had created in our guests as a bride I still we’ll up now looking back at how happy and in love everyone was on our day.

Q Why did you decide you wanted a video recording of your wedding day?

Friends of ours had their wedding recorded and when seeing their DVD we knew we wanted that too. But also some very special family could not be there because of illness and now they can share in our day by watching this with us.

Q. What memories did the video provide which your photographs didn’t capture?

We got to watch back our speeches which at the time almost went in one ear and out the other so it was nice to hear and see things I didn’t notice on the day. Also watching us make our vows to each other something photos just doesn’t quite get fully.

Q. Why did you choose The Finishing Touch?

Friends if ours who got married a year ago used your services and when I watched their video I, as the future bride, was overwhelmed with emotion. You really captured the magic of their day so it was an easy decision to make.

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

We would definitely recommend finishing touch and already are doing so we have a lot of upcoming weddings and are encouraging them to all go for it.

Q. Why did you choose the Hinckley island Hotel for your Reception?

It provided rooms for our guests so we could see them the next day, it had a beautiful backdrop and provided everything we needed to make our day perfect. We definitely would recommend it.

DIY: Wine Cork Placecard holders

These Wine Cork Placecard Holders can be bought (£5.95/per set of 4) at,  but if your feeling creative and have been saving up corks (for what every reason – I’m not asking)  this could be a fabulous and simple DIY project for you to undertake. If you can handle drinking a few bottles of wine to save up for this DIY, then I think you’ll be in the clear, supply-wise.


  • 1 wine cork per place setting
  • Razor blade or X-acto (craft) knife
  • Cardstock
  • Calligraphy pen
  • Optional: Hot glue gun and magnet strip

To hear the steps, read more.

Here’s how:

  1. Using the razor blade or craft knife, slice off one side of the cork lengthwise, so it can lay flat on the table. Make sure to use a fresh (sharp) blade, otherwise the cork may crumble.
  2. Then, with the cork set flat on the table, make a slice down the middle lengthwise, but not all the way through.
