“WOW! This has to be the best Christmas present ever! 

Hi Barry

Thank you so much. Jason and I received our film yesterday (21.12.12) so sat and watched it for the fist time last night. What can I say except wow! This has to be the best Christmas present ever!

You have completely captured everything from the day plus a few little extras that we had no idea about (best man and ushers singing hehe).

Watching it back we both felt just as nervous if not more than we did on the day itself and we laughed and cried throughout as every single moment has been captured perfectly.

It was lovely to see our family and friends who had left messages for us on the guest messages segment of the DVD, and quite amusing too!

You have done an amazing job and made our special day feel even more magical. Throughout the day you have caught everything on camera without us even noticing that you were there.

Your professionalism shone through as you helped both Jason and myself to relax and you worked brilliantly alongside our photographer.

We couldn’t of asked for a nicer guy to film the most important day of our lives and we will definitely be recommending you to others.

Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts, we love our film and will be watching it over and over again.

We hope you have a truly wonderful Christmas and a fantastic year in 2013.

“What can I say, WOW …

Barry !!

What can I say, wow !

Choosing someone to capture one of the most important days of your life is such a hard decision and me an Sean new from the moment we first met you that we had made the right choice.

You was warm and reassuring and put us both at ease. At every step of the way both up to the wedding and after the wedding you have kept us up to date of what was happening.

We both was so excited to get our wedding film back and are over the moon with it . You have captured every single moment beautifully and of course brought back lots of amazing memories.

It’s surprising how many little things we missed and you captured that make the DVD all that more special.

I can’t tell you in words just how truly grateful we are and what a fantastic job you have done , thank you for being part of our special day and capturing memories that will last a lifetime

Hope to see you in the future as we would both 110 percent recommend you to any one looking to capture their big day.

Take care and thanks again ”

“WOW, WOW and WOW again! …

Hi Barry,

WOW, WOW and WOW again!  Thank you so much for our amazing wedding DVD- You really have captured everything beautifully.  We have been so excited to relive our special day and it has been well worth the wait!

You were recommended to us by a friend, who was so impressed with you, and you definitely lived up to our high expectations.  Right from our first meeting, you were so organised, professional and really calmed us down (as this was necessary at the time!)  On our big day, we really didn’t know that you were there, apart from when you were always on hand to help out with anything that we might need.

The results of the DVD are fantastic and it’s so great to be able to watch the parts that we didn’t see, particularly watching each other arrive at the church, amongst so many other things.  It’s brilliant how there are little gems of the day that we had completely forgotten but then they can be brought straight back to us in an instant.

We absolutely love our DVD and we’re so happy that we chose you to film our special memories that we will treasure forever.

We couldn’t recommend you enough!

Thanks again!

“…Truly amazing video that will be treasured forever…..

Hi Barry

Truly amazing video that will be treasured forever.

We received our discs last week and are so happy with the result. Have watched it non stop since it arrived and all the family and friends who have seen it, sobbed all the way through!

From our first phone call to the end result you were so professional and made us feel at ease. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.

People didn’t even realise there was a video being taken on the day which was perfect as there’s nothing worse than a camera being put in your face! You captured everything beautifully and the natural moments are just perfect. I loved seeing everything that we missed on the day.

Will most definitely be recommending you to all who ask for a videographer.

Thanks so much for the beautiful memories we have forever.

“…it is breathtaking….

Hi Barry

In the few short days we have had the DVD I have watched it four times because I love it so much.

I managed not to cry on the day but I couldn’t stop the tears when watching it.

It’s beautifully edited. The music fits each section perfectly.

It’s more than we imagined.

My mum has said it is breathtaking.

I love the fact that I can see all the things that I missed on the day such as Oliver waiting nervously at the Church, my mum and brother walking down the aisle etc.

Thank you for the advice you gave to the men for the speeches. Watching it back I can see it was frequently used.

Also for helping to calm Oliver and giving us time on our own at the reception (away from the photographer).

All of our guests love how friendly, funny and unobtrusive you are. My nan couldn’t sing your praises enough!

Being camera shy you managed to get all the special moments whilst being in the background, making us and all our guests feel relaxed.

I think I only caught you ‘secretly’ filming once all day.

You are professional and genuine in everything you do and quick to respond to any queries.

We are so happy we chose Diamond Lights and we will be recommending you to everyone.

Thank you again for catching our special day in a way we will cherish forever.

Hi Barry

Well we have just finished the DVDs……there are honestly no words to say how happy we are!!!

You have done an absolutely amazing job, capturing our day so perfectly, and we have laughed and cried all the way through it.

It is the most wonderful way to keep our memories and share them with our family and friends.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I will add a comment similar to this to your blog and facebook, everyone needs to know what a fantastic job you do.

Very much looking forward to seeing you at my sisters wedding in August 2013, I already know how pleased they will be with their own DVD.

To Barry

Chris and I both just wanted to express our gratitude to you, both for the DVD and for the way you were on our wedding day.

I can’t thank you enough for putting us all at ease on the day and for capturing those really special moments and features.

We are so happy that we made the decision to have our day filmed and that we chose you.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you other brides and grooms !

“You have done an amazing job, we can’t thank you enough……

Hi Barry

Since we received our wedding DVD we’ve lost count how many times we’ve watched it and it’s still as special as it was the first time. You have perfectly captured all the special moments that we shared with all of our closest family and friends and we are made up we have this to treasure forever.

From our meeting a few days before our big day you put us at ease and reassured us that there was nothing to be nervous about, especially our first dance, you even offered a few words of advice for Phil with his speech. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer man to have filmed our day, we had such a laugh with you throughout the day and we loved how well you worked with our photographers and the staff at Statham Lodge.

We loved seeing the groom and bridal preparations that you have captured from the morning, it’s so lovely to watch all the guests arriving and Phil waiting nervously at the top of the aisle. We laughed so much watching the speeches and at the guests reactions at some of the tales being told……especially by the Best Men!! It was also lovely seeing all our nieces and nephews running about enjoying the sunshine and getting into mischief !!

The way you captured our first dance was brilliant, just as you said it would be! It was great watching it back!

You have timed the music perfectly with each section of the film which adds to the emotion that comes across when watching it. The venue shots make the grounds of Statham Lodge look even more beautiful than they already are.

Our family and friends that have watched our film have said that they didn’t even realise we had a videographer which just goes to show how unobtrusive you are when filming whilst still managing to capture all those precious and funny moments.

We would highly recommend you to any future bride and grooms; we are so glad that we decided  to have our big day filmed and even more pleased that we chose Diamond Lights.

You were highly recommended to us by quite a few friends and we were not disappointed with the results, you have done an amazing job and we can’t thank you enough.

“The DVD is Outstanding……

To Barry

Myself and Rob would really like to thank you for the wonderful wedding DVD you have produced for us.

You made our wedding day so special and precious and it is amazing to see how much you actually capured on camera considering how invisible you were.

The DVD is outstanding and holds lots of memories of the day so well, the quality and the way in which you have edited it are second to none.

We have shared this with many family members who have complimented your work greatly.

From start to finish the DVD captured every special moment of the day and I especially loved the way you zoomed in on my Wigan Warriors garta, that was pure quality!!!

It was an absolute pleasure to have you involved in our special day, your work is always professional in regards to keeping us informed on how things are developing etc.

You are a top bloke and myself and Rob also regard you as a friend too, and I will definitely recommend your work to as many people as possible.

Many Many Thanx

Just like to thank you for all of your help before during and after the wedding. You made everything effortless and most of the time did not even notice you were there.

The final DVD is amazing have watched it several times since we received it and Julies mum has shown it to everyone she knows I think.

You have really captured the day brilliantly…

I could not recommend your service enough.  Thanks again for all of the great memories

“A truly amazing film and a memory that we will treasure for the rest of our lives..

Barry, from our first communication to the first meeting in our local pub! you were professional and charming! it felt like we had known you for years.

You hit it off with James so well, it was lovely to hear the banter between you both.

The day of the wedding came and the nerves had settled in and I remember getting out of the car and seeing your friendly and familiar face smiling at me.

You fitted in so well with all our family and friends, if it wasn’t for the camera you would have passed as one of our guests.

I didn’t cry on our wedding day but after watching the film I certainly felt choked and had a tear in my eye.

We watched the film with our our parents and they had nothing but praise for you.

You will be highly recommended by all of us and it certainly was value for money.

Thanks you so much for the beautiful film we can’t wait to show it off.

It was lovely working with you Barry and we hope that our path’s cross again soon.

“I am so happy that we booked with you….

Hi Barry

Our wedding DVD arrived today and we have just finished watching it tonight.

We just would like to take this opportunity to say a big big thank you for such fantastic work.

Prior to the wedding I spent a long time searching the internet trying to find a wedding DVD company that I not only liked but trusted, I am so happy we booked yourself.

We both laughed and cried (happy tears of course) watching our DVD and it bought all those fantastic memories of the day back, you even manage to capture those special and funny moments that we missed.

You made us feel completely relaxed on the day and I would and have highly recommend you to anybody else.

Thank you once again

Love

“Thanks for such a fantastic video. Everyone who has seen our DVD has spoken so highly of the quality, and of course of you.

You managed to capture so much of the day, stuff that we missed, and you put it all together so elegantly. You assigned the music so well, that a viewer would think each song was written for that specific part of the DVD.

Anyone who is wondering whether or not to have a video should just have a look at the Diamond Lights demo DVD, and you will immediately make your mind up to hire them. It was by far the best investment we made as we now have the perfect capture of our day which will remain with us forever. No matter how many times we have watched it, it will always bring a tear to the eye.

You fitted in seamlessly to our day and captured everything that anyone could ask for from their wedding day. By the time the wedding day came we felt as if we knew you so well, that most of the time we didn’t even notice you were there filming.

Your DVD tells the entire story of our day far better than any photographs ever could, we are so thrilled with it.

You came highly recommended to us, and we shall also recommend you to everyone.

“He is just brilliant at what he does…

We received our wedding video nearly a week ago and must have watched it 20 times over already and it really is more than we could have wished for.

Choosing a wedding videographer is not easy when you have so many DVD samples but Barry’s just stood out from the rest and we instantly knew we would go with Diamond Lights, the style, the layout, the quality, the price and knowing Barry deals with everything personally just proves what a service you get.

I for one have never liked seeing myself on camera but I knew I really wanted our special day on film and knowing some of our guests were also conscious about being filmed I was therefore really worried as to how it would turn out but after speaking to Barry and mithering him like a don’t know what for the past 2 years he really has done us proud and on the day of the wedding everyone was so relaxed and the banter between Barry and our family and friends was superb and those conscious worries were never seen! Our family and friends just love the film.

It didn’t matter what or when my question was Barry always replied knowing I would go back with a dozen more and accommodated everything we wanted for our video! He even gave us tips for things we hadn’t even thought of for the actual wedding as well as making hubby relax about his speech.

All of our song choices ended up fitting perfectly throughout but more so within our guest messages which were hilarious and how he set them out was fantastic! We only wish more of our guests had taken part!

I am so glad we decided to go ahead as we now have the most wonderful memories on film and it really is great to watch over and over again as there are so many things that went on that you don’t actually realise on the day, from the funny bits with  the brothers & ushers taking the model poses, laughter and to the emotional side, Barry just simply captured everything perfectly.

Our trailer was fantastic and has given us that added extra speciality for a wedding video plus teased our family and friends for the final film.

We would definitely recommend Barry to all our family and friends and to anyone as he is just brilliant at what he does and is such a lovely person and we cannot thank him enough, “professional but friendly”.

We are now in the process of ordering extra copies for our family and friends!

“The video is outstanding …..

Hi Barry.

From the moment you came to see us to discuss the services you offer, we knew very quickly that we wanted you to capture our special day.

The communication approaching the wedding day helped us feel reassured.

On the day, it felt like you was a friend who was invited to our wedding, as we felt so relaxed around you. Myself, husband and guests barely realised you were filming and you worked excellently with our photographer.

The video is outstanding in many ways. You got to know us personally throughout the whole period, and as a result this was reflected in our video.

My husband was apprehensive about being filmed however you made him feel at ease and has no regrets.

We have had 70% sucess rate if tears and 100% rate of laughs. The way you matched the music with our footage was amazing, I cried within the first 10 seconds, just from the music you put along with the open credits.

The video summed our day perfectly and it will continue to remind us of our memories for a long time to come.

Once again, thanks for everything you have done for us both.

All the best
