Wedding Photography and Video at Dunchurch Park Hotel // Victoria and Guy


Hi Ian,

We received the Blu Rays in the post today and have given ’em a once through and they just look gorgeous. The image is perfect and whatever you’ve done to overlay the sound for the speeches is flawless.

Although we’d seen the fantastic job you had done for my sisters wedding, I’ll be honest, with me having a background in (and teaching) video and editing on an almost daily basis, the filming and photography of our own wedding day was something I was sure I was going to be extremely picky about and very very difficult to please. Having received these today and sitting and watching through them again (and again and again) I can without a shadow of a doubt say what a wonderful job and incredible effort you’ve put forth for us not only on the day itself, but obviously in the time afterwards.

Between Donna’s wedding, and Fay’s wedding, and then our own, we feel like we’ve seen you often enough to say it wasn’t just great to have you at our day as video/photographers, but also as guests.

Thank you for everything, and I have a feeling we’ll be seeing you again in the future.

Guy & Victoria (Bennett)

Wedding Video Feedback by Claire & Ben

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?

1. Be organised. There is a lot to get done, lots of people/companies to deal with so best advice is to start planning ASAP and keep up to date of budget via a spreadsheet.

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

2. Best memory is the ceremony, with it being outside and great weather it made that part extra special.

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

3. I was advised by friends to get wedding recorded as you miss out on so many parts of the day being a bride, and also you forget things that happened over time for example what was said in the speeches.

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

4. Speeches without a doubt, and the general atmosphere of the day itself.

Q. Why did you choose The Finishing Touch?

We looked at their previous work online, their professional website etc. We liked their modern style and eye for all the important little details.

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

5. I did research and felt that finishing touch provided the style of film that I was after at a reasonable cost.

Q. How would you some up your experience of The Finishing Touch?

8. Excellent experience dealing with very professional people.

Alrewas Hayes Wedding Video // Monique & Richard

Here are the highlights to Monique & Richard’s amazing wedding day back in March. What a stunning bride!

Hi Ian – I hope you’ve been well!

We watched the videos yesterday. You’ve done such a wonderful job – it’s clear that you’ve spent a lot of time getting great footage and you’ve put it together so well. Both sets of parents are also very pleased.

Hi Ian

Just wanted to chip in and second Monique’s thanks – we were very, very pleased with the quality of the videography. Really great shots, you did a brilliant job of capturing the colour and energy and you did superbly at getting round all the 400-odd guests too. I enjoyed watching the footage far more than I thought I would!

And needless to say the parents and in-laws loved it.

Thanks very much for all your efforts and sorry to be so slow in getting back to you.

Let us know if you want any testimonials or anything.

Thanks a lot
Richard

Laura & Lee’s Wedding Video at New Hall Hotel

Wedding Video Feedback by Laura & Lee

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?

Cliche but its all about the both of you and not others!
You hopefully only do it once so don’t compromise on your wishes as you will only regret it later!
Make sure you give yourself time on the day to enjoy it!
Trust your suppliers. They are experts in what they do so don’t feel the need to be in control of everything… It will lead to burn out and drive you crazy!

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

My husband and I coming out of the church so elated that we had done it!

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

I have to admit and be honesty having a video was an after thought as my grandma put some extra money forward and therefore we could justify it. Now we have the video it is the only thing we have left of that very special day other than our memories and photos. Nothing takes us back there as much as watching the video. Our nerves, our joy, the fun of the day! It’s wonderful. Looking back it should have been the first thing we booked not the last!!! It will be a lovely thing to show our children.

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

We loved watching the speeches and bits of the day that happened without our presence. Priceless footage that cannot be replicated by photos!

Q. Why did you choose The Finishing Touch?

We looked at their previous work online, their professional website etc. We liked their modern style and eye for all the important little details.

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

Absolutely !!

Q. How would you some up your experience of The Finishing Touch?

Not only was the final product a tear jerker and fantastic video but the team Pam and Ian were lovely. I admire their enthusiasm for weddings. I imagine for many suppliers, weddings become somewhat routine and expected. Some suppliers made us feel that we were just another booking/wedding day. Although this may be true for them, for the couple it is a one time, exciting part of life and I wish some suppliers could disguise any feelings of monotony they may feel. Pam and Ian made us feel that our day was as exciting for them as it was us and for that I think it puts Finishing Touch at the top!
