A massive THANK YOU to Barry.
Barry was our first choice for filming our Wedding and it was the best choice we could have made.
From first contacting him for a Demonstration DVD we were so impressed with not only his professionalism but also his friendly nature.
It felt like we were asking a friend to film our day, as he couldn’t do enough to help with providing information and answering any queries. The Demonstration DVD left us in no doubt that we wanted Barry to film our day.
We then met Barry just a few days before our Wedding, which was a wet dull July Tuesday night before our Wedding rehearsal. On first meeting him, he was so friendly and it felt like it was a friend coming round to see us to chat about the day.
He put our minds at ease about anything and everything that could happen on the day, even down to the weather, so that we were no longer bothered if we had rain or shine. This being one of the things we had no control over, it felt great to be reassured that our Wedding day would be the best day ever, regardless of factors outside our control – Barry was the only person to do this.
We laughed and joked all the way through our first meeting and he even offered to step in to do the first dance with Matt if required.
Barry must have been at Church bright and early as he has captured the most amazing footage of the Church, the surroundings, and all the guests arriving, and there are some great shots of the men in their suits. He was again putting everyone at ease and was laughing and joking with the Wedding party and guests.
Throughout the day Barry was a huge hit with everyone, and even got a mention in the Father of the Bride’s speech.
On the day of the Wedding – the bad weather had gone and the July heat wave had hit. It was an extremely hot day, but Barry ensured that neither of us were ever in need of a drink and made sure we were happy throughout the day. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he helped ensure the day ran perfectly and everyone was happy, for which we cannot thank him enough.
Even once Barry had finished filming he stayed a while longer, just to chat, which we thought was such a nice way for him to end the day with us, as it showed he had enjoyed the day and nothing was too much trouble.
Then there’s the DVD – Wow, Wow, Wow.
It is the most amazing DVD ever and although we may be biased because it’s our Wedding Video, it’s better than any Hollywood Blockbuster.
Barry has put together the DVD in such a professional way, from the footage, to how it’s edited and the perfectly selected songs for every part. Every time we hear a song from the video, we are reminded of that part of our Wedding Day. It’s hard to believe that we picked a list of songs for our DVD months beforehand, as every element of the footage matches up perfectly to every song. One edit in particular, to a Queen song, is just amazing and we couldn’t stop laughing (Morecambe and Wise comes to mind).
The DVD covers every part of our day and captures the emotions of the day, from start to finish.
It’s over three hours long, but every minute, from the opening titles to the highlights section, is just as entertaining and enjoyable to watch as the last. It’s easy to see how much Barry enjoys his work. He is a true professional.
We would advise any couple getting married to make sure a videographer is one of the first things to book, but more importantly book Diamond Lights, as you will not be disappointed. Not only will you have the most amazing DVD of your day, but you will also have a friend filming your Wedding.
Our DVD is a memento of our Wedding that will last a lifetime and that’s all thanks to Barry and Diamond Lights.
Thank You Barry.
Love and Best Wishes
