Couldn't Recommend Enough!

We've just had our wedding video back from Rich and are in love with every second of it! Rich is brilliant, such a calming presence throughout the day and very unobtrusive but manages to capture amazing moments and the overall mood perfectly. If you are debating hiring a videographer for your wedding, it is 100% worth the money. We are sooo pleased we can watch back the ceremony, speeches and overall day for years to come!

Can’t recommend Richard enough

We had Richard as our videographer for our wedding in April this year. I honestly can not recommend this man enough, from the moment he introduced himself, he was wonderful he made both me and my partner feel so at ease in front of the camera which is something we didn’t think possible. The video we have received of our wedding is everything we asked for and more, I can not stop watching it and crying/laughing. Richard is amazing and his attention to detail is incredible.I will forever be grateful that we chose him to video our special day and would choose him over and over again.

Incredible

Rich is an incredible videographer.

Really easy to deal with beforehand, easygoing, fun and unobtrusive on the day, often we were totally unaware he was filming.
Rich has captured so many special little moments from our wedding in Cornwall, at a venue he did not know & worked great with our photographer who he also didn’t know.
We absolutely love our wedding film.
I would 100% recommend Rich!

You need this man as your videographer!

I cannot express enough how overwhelmed we both are with the quality of Richard’s work. His experience and artistic talent couldn’t be more obvious, with his calm and relaxed demeanour instantly putting everyone at ease.

He has captured our wedding day in its entirety, carefully considering the framing of every shot. Then using his professional editing skills, he has showcased all of the significant moments throughout the day and recorded so many other details. He has portrayed our character and style perfectly through the series of videos within our chosen package.

Watching the videos is a very emotive experience bringing back the wonderful memories and feelings of the day in a way that photos just aren’t able to.

We can’t recommend Richard enough; you need this man as your videographer! Thank you so much!

He is brilliant, book him!

Richard was awesome and we can’t recommend him enough. Easy to work with from start to finish. He understood the brief and executed it brilliant. More importantly he’s made a beautiful video that we will love and treasure forever.

Cannot recommend highly enough!!!

We were initially hestitant to hire a wedding videographer because of the extra cost, and were worried about it feeling intrusive alongside a photographer. But I can say without a shadow of a doubt that it is the best planning decision we made!

Rich captured the day so beautifully, and we often forgot he was there! He really made us feel at ease. Rich is super professional but equally warm and friendly. A genuinely lovely guy!

Where to begin with the videos?! We got his package that included drone footage, which is just amazing!! He really caught the special moments of our day, and his video editing is incredible. We got an incredible highlights reel that is about 13 minutes long, a 60second Instagram clip, unedited speeches and ceremonies plus all of the raw footage. Rich really has thought it all through, his packages were also really well priced and worth every penny!

We have watched our wedding videos on repeat… they are just stunning, and we will cherish them forever.

Wow, just wow.

What can we say...
My advice to anyone contemplating a videographer for their wedding is DO IT and MAKE SURE to go to Rich! Our wedding videos are amazing and he really captured every little detail, giving us memories to have forever.

He was so attentive, communicative and made everything so effortless & stress free for us.

We were both camera shy going into the wedding, but he really makes you feel at ease. The final videos, just wow, it takes you back to the day and you really do re-live every single part of it.

Cannot recommend Rich enough, also cannot thank him enough for everything! Highly recommend

Just what we wanted

Richard’s end result speaks for itself. His videos are beautiful and we were incredibly pleased with the highlights package, but the reason to book him is his presence on the day of the wedding. He was minimal fuss, blended into the day with ease, and when he checked something with us, it was done in a calm manner that ensured we didn’t worry about anything. A pleasure to have with us on the day.

Highly recommend - Brilliant Wedding Videographer

Rich is an incredibly talented videographer. His style is exactly what we were looking for in our wedding video. He is really creative, captures all the key moments as well as the little details. He really does go above and beyond. He worked really well with a photographer he had never met before and at venue he had never been to before (you would never know). Throughout his communication was brilliant. He always comes back to you super fast. He was happy to do multiple video calls to discuss what we wanted. The videos were turned around very fast and to a high standard. We would highly recommend Rich, he will make sure you have a brilliant day. Ultimately, he is a lovely, down to earth person who just wants you to have the best wedding day.

The silver lining of our wedding being delayed was to have Richard as a videographer!

I can't recommend Richard or sing his praises enough!! We are absolutely over the moon with our videos!

He captured some truly special memories that we will forever cherish that take us back to that day instantly to feel all of the emotion and love.

Richard works in such a forward thinking way, as in total we have 5 different clips with a variety of different times - a preview, a social media clip, a highlight video (the best one to show everyone - about 7.5 mins), speeches and the ceremony. This is honestly incredible as dependent on who we’re showing it to, we have something for everyone! Instead of a traditional sense where it's one long video where you fast forward bits and are probably less likely to watch it as regularly.

We see it as such a silver lining as if our wedding hadn’t been delayed by Covid we didn’t originally plan to have a videographer! Now we have these precious memories forever thanks Richard.

Thank you so much! Aneeta & Orlando xx
