“…If your date is available and you get the chance to have Barry at your wedding please do, don’t hesitate to book him ……..

Hello Barry.

I wanted to share my thoughts on your page for everybody to see as we received our wedding film yesterday and it truly was amazing!

We watched the montage first and straight away I was in tears, happy of course…

The DVD was nothing we expected but it completely exceeded our expectations.

I knew from the beginning I wanted a videographer for our wedding, it was top of my list, but Billy (my husband) was a little sceptical (as was his family), they thought it would be intrusive on our special day and make people nervous and not be able to relax.

This was of course not the case at all.

Barry has a natural gift of making people feel comfortable and relaxed and considering he is stood there with a tripod and a camera he is actually very good at disappearing in the distance, we didn’t even notice him at our wedding once the main video shots had been taken.

Barry was the second videographer I spoke to, but after our conversation I knew I had to have him! Regardless of price, that was it, my decision was made,

In fact I thought at the time the prices were very reasonable, looking back now after what we received on the day and now the DVD, the prices where incredible – you get more than a DVD with Barry, he is a god send from that first conversation you have with him.

I can assure everybody that Barry is constantly professional throughout, yet he is really laid back and funny, he had brilliant banter with my husband and all the other soldiers, I was worried about the soldiers at my wedding as I know what they can be like, but Barry loved it he took them and their banter in his stride and we all had a great day.

Barry has brilliant advice about weddings and in fact we took all his advice and I don’t have one regret about our wedding it was perfect from beginning to end.

If your date is available and you get the chance to have Barry at your wedding please do, don’t hesitate to book him it was the best thing about our wedding and I promise it will be the best thing about yours.

I’d hate for people to regret it if you miss your chance booking him for your date.

I may sound over the top, but I can’t stress enough how much we loved our wedding and a lot of that was thanks to Barry!!!

P.S Don’t think you have to choose between photographer and videographer, Barry works great along side anybody!

I’ll stop now, this testimonial was nearly as long as my speech!!

Thanks again Barry,

All our love,
Sophie and Billy

Hi Barry

My Husband and I have just watched our wedding video for the millionth time. Can’t stop watching it!

Barry, you have done a fantastic job at capturing our special day. We really can’t thank you enough.

You made us feel at ease on the day from start to finish, we hardly even noticed you filming, and all our family and friends have commented on how friendly you were throughout the day.

We absolutely love our guest messages and are so glad we decided to have them.

We have and will continue to recommend you in the future.

Thanks again Barry.

“..we cannot thank you enough!……..

Hi Barry,

Peter & myself would just like to say a massive Thank-you for everything you have done, you went beyond what we expected and cannot thank you enough!

From the first time we contacted you right up until now you have helped us and answered any queries we had.

We laughed and cried through the DVD and you didn’t miss a thing, we were all saying we didn’t even know you was there for all the footage you have gathered.

You captured our day beautifully and made it so personal.

As you know my Dad couldn’t be part of our day and the way you have incorporated him into the DVD is amazing and for that and all the support you gave me before the day, on the day and still now regarding my Dad I really appreciate and will never forget it.

We have memories of our day but having the DVD we can watch it anytime we want and we are so glad we had you as our videographer and anyone who is thinking of having you really should not hesitate, it was one of the best decisions we made and we will recommend you to others.

Again Thank-you

“..the final product that you produced, surpassed even our loftiest expectations……..

Barry,

Claire and I wanted to write to express our gratitude for our fantastic wedding video. It is a truly wonderful reminder of our special day.

We were really thrilled when you confirmed that you were free to shoot our wedding as we had been highly impressed with both you, and your demonstration DVD, when we first met at a wedding fair. However, the service you subsequently provided, and the final product that you produced, surpassed even our loftiest expectations.

Throughout the process we were impressed by your thorough, methodical and personal approach and it was a great comfort that we always felt that we could pick up the phone, or send you an email, if we had any queries or concerns.

On the day of our wedding we were pleased at how unobtrusive and discreet you were. We were also particularly taken with how your focus was not just capturing the event but helping to ensure that it went smoothly. For example, your motivational chat to a very nervous best man certainly helped to give him the confidence to deliver (if not quite enjoy) his speech!

Following the wedding, we were provided with regular updates and a clear timeframe as to when we could expect the final product. We have since watched the video on several occasions and we continue to be delighted at how it captures and preserves thewonderful atmosphere of the occasion. Indeed, our family members agree so wholeheartedly that we have already returned to you to order additional copies!

We cannot thank you enough for all your help and we will (and have) recommended you to our friends and colleagues.

Warm regards

Tom & Claire.

“..Words cannot thank you enough for our fantastic wedding film…….

Barry, what a true professional you really are!!!!!!!

Words cannot thank you enough for our fantastic wedding film.

Myself and Phil sat down together to watch it and we we’re completely overwhelmed, we laughed, we cried and it brought back parts of our wedding day that had slipped to the back of our minds. As well as showing us moments we didn’t get to see ourselves on the day.

As other couples have mentioned having our wedding filmed was not at the top of the list but for any couples who are unsure then it is an absolute must. It is just the best keepsake of the most amazing day ever.

Barry, you always had time for us, listened to us, used your great experience and gave us great advice leading up to our day.

We would and certainly will be recommending you to anybody we know getting married in the future

Wishing you the very best

“..absolutely brilliant …….

Hi Barry….

we have received our Wedding DVDs today and what can I say?

They are absolutely fantastic!!

You have captured moments throughout our Wedding Day that we would have missed if you hadn’t of been there!

Parts of the videos bring a lump to your throat….other parts had us crying laughing – absolutely brilliant!

Myself and Daniel cant thank you enough for everything you did for us leading up to the wedding day and on the day itself. Nothing was too much trouble and you kept us both calm, relaxed and guided us through the day.

We cant wait to show our friends and family our wedding video but more importantly we are so happy to have chosen Diamond Lights Wedding Videography to capture our special day and leave us with memories that we can watch over and over again.

Thank you once again Barry.”

“..booking you has to be the best decision we made in our wedding plans! ……

Hi Barry…..

Where do we begin?!

From the first point of contact two years before our wedding date, right up to posting out our amazing wedding film – you really have gone over and above what we expected. You made everything so straightforward and were so thorough throughout – the whole process was an absolute dream!

Having a wedding film wasn’t originally in our plans, and as you saw when we first met, Antony will be the first to tell you that he isn’t a fan of any type of camera, film etc… (typical man!) However, booking you has to be the best decision we made in our wedding plans!

Our first official meeting was one week prior to the wedding, nerves were kicking in and I was stressed about things that were out of my control… but you came to our home, went through everything with a fine toothcomb, had a laugh and a joke with us, and gave me a piece of advice that I will never forget….

” You have spent two years planning for the best day of your lives, the night before the big day, put your wedding in a box, tie it up, hand it over to me and your wedding planner and enjoy every minute of your special day.”

I truly believe this is what helped me keep as calm as everyone said I was, and I will always remember that…

On the day, you were extremely attentive without being intrusive. Constantly checking I was ok, ‘Are you too cold?’, ‘Are you thirsty?’ etc. Having a laugh with Antony over his Mini microphone, helping him to keep calm and forget that there was even a camera in sight. You really did help keep the day running as perfect as it turned out to be.

Our family and friends have all commented on how professional yet laid back you were and we cannot wait to show them all the finished product.

We can’t thank you enough for the amazing job you’ve done with our wedding video – it really is perfect. There are aspects of the film that are so stunning they instantly leave a lump in your throat!

You really captured the atmosphere of the day, that we can now re-live , forever.

From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you Barry!!

“..We would recommend to everybody to have their special day captured on film, but it would have to be Barry behind the camera…….

After receiving our wedding DVD, we wanted to share our thanks and gratitude to Barry for producing such a wonderful memory for us.

When we were making our first preparations for the wedding, one thing we were both certain of was we wanted a videographer, and after booking the Church and reception, this was our next task. We took our time looking through different websites, however, there was one which stood out – Barry (https://www.diamond-lights.co.uk/.)
The reason why this was, was because Barry was only one of the few who advertised a free demonstration pack. So we requested a copy, which arrived promptly and we were in awe at the work he had sent us.

So that was it – we knew Barry was the person we wanted to film our wedding and our meeting with Barry confirmed this! Within minutes of meeting him, it was like talking to an old friend about our upcoming wedding. He had an ability to put you straight at ease, whilst offering a professional opinion and a voice of true experience.

On the actual wedding day Barry and Sam (our photographer) worked seamlessly together and we both felt like we simply had another two guests at our wedding. Nothing felt staged and most of the time they had us in fits of laughter. Together they made it an extremely enjoyable experience.

And then came the production of the DVD, at every stage Barry kept us informed of where he was up to. The production schedule which appears on the Diamond Lights website is a genius idea! We are going to miss the texts from our Chief Bridesmaid informing us of the latest update.

The DVD exceeded expectations (and they were already sky high!). Barry captured the tone of each part of the day beautifully, the importance of the ceremony, the relaxing afterwards, the fun of the night. Each piece of music we chose, was carefully selected by Barry and the end result brought tears to our eyes from both emotion and laughter.

We would recommend to everybody to have their special day captured on film, but it would have to be Barry behind the camera.

“..Our final DVD is fantastic and better than we could have ever hoped for…..

Our final DVD is fantastic and better than we could have ever hoped for.

Prior to the wedding Barry was very professional and reassuring. He fully explained what would be captured on the wedding day and offered a number of packages and customisations to really fine tune the final product.

On the wedding day Barry was the model of professionalism and was not intrusive to the wedding process in any way. However, he was there a great support such as getting the groom a glass of water during the taking of the wedding photos. Barry also worked closely with the photographer to prevent doubling up of shots and allow us to enjoy our special day. His attention to detail was meticulous and he captured small instances and natural moments which truly enhanced our memories of the day.

Barry’s service has been extremely timely despite his extremely busy schedule. The final DVD has very high production values and is brilliantly edited. We are extremely impressed with the music placement. Barry did not know the significance of all the tracks we had chosen, but with his experience he has placed them perfectly which reduces me to tears every time but; for all the right reasons.

Overall Barry service and product was exceptional and we would highly recommend him to others.

If I ever get married again, I might marry Barry – Ste

“..The finished article is absolutely amazing and we have watched it more times than I care to admit……….

Barry was our Superman, just without the Cape and Underpants!!!

Having been let down on the 11th hour for our Wedding Video, Barry very kindly agreed to step in and ensure our day went without a hitch.

Firstly, let me say that Barry is one of THE nicest People you could ever meet and he immediately put my wife Tracy’s and my mind at ease. He is not only very knowledgeable but extremely professional whilst being quick witted and extremely friendly, meaning we were most definitely in good hands.

On the day, Barry was a total godsend, helping out whilst being unobtrusive yet knowing exactly what was needed and ultimately helping yet again to put Tracy at ease along with Elaine her Mum.

From my perspective, Barry and I had a great laugh with the tiny microphone I wore and again by having him around helped keep my nerves relatively calm.

Trust me when I say that you really do not know he is filming you or indeed he is even there, that is how good and professional he is!

Throughout the day, Barry captured some very special moments, and in fact when we received our Wedding DVD there were moments on there we did not know had happened which made his service so much more special for us both.

The finished article is absolutely amazing and we have watched it more times than I care to admit, and every time it brings a tear to both my wife’s and my eyes, it really is such a fantastic DVD.

We would both whole heartedly recommend Barry to anyone wanting to capture those special and often forgotten about moments from your Big Day, and so from my wife Tracy and Myself, A Massive Heart felt Thanks Barry, you were and are a Diamond in our eyes.

Well we finally got to sit and watch our wedding DVD and we are totally blown away.

Having had the pleasure of being at 3 previous weddings you had filmed at and seeing fantastic films of their days we knew it was essential that you filmed our wedding.

Right from the first meeting you didn’t disappoint. A true professional with a friendly, can do approach and totally put our nerves at ease.

Having the second camera man proved a brilliant idea from you and totally captured our day from 2 different angles.

We had no doubts our film would be amazing but watching it was just more than we could have imagined or expected.

You perfectly edited our cruise wedding day into our day back at home and it’s a true journey of our marriage. The way you have encorporated all the details and cleverly put our favourite music to each part.

Since our wedding we have had the pleasure of seeing you at another friends wedding and we will continue to recommend you.

We already plan on booking you for our baby’s naming ceremony and will defiantly be in touch.

Once again we cannot thank you enough for your support, guidance, advice and for producing a memory that we can watch again and again to relive our day.

You are much more than just a videographer you genuinely care about what you do and it was a pleasure to have you with us that day.

We wish you all the best in the future and know you will continue to bring joy to every couple you work with.

Lots of love Karen and Robert”

Barry I just wanted to say a massive thank you for our fabulous wedding film

I have watched it over and over again.

Our last minute decision to have a video was the best decision we ever made, all the bits we had forgot about came straight back.

The way the film has been edited is brilliant and I will be recommending you (as Gemma did to me) to anybody getting married.

My only regret is not asking you to stay for the evening, after seeing the film I know you would have done an amazing job of capturing how much of a good time we all had.

The service was also brilliant, we knew all along what was happening so no need for me to ever chase anything up. Thank you very much xx”

We have so much to thank you for, I don’t know where to start.

We were impressed from the very beginning, for being so thorough, being sure you knew exactly what we wanted, contacting us regularly and offering your words of wisdom, you truly were fantastic!

The day soon came around and you were a star, although you were very professional you managed to have us giggling from the start!

You put us at ease and I can’t thank you enough. Our guests even passed comment on how brilliant you where.

We watched our film last night and its absolutely perfect, you captured our day so beautifully and got some shots that had us laughing.

The day passed so quickly and you have given us something to treasure forever!

“..booking Barry for our wedding was the best decision we made during our wedding planning ….

First of all we’d just like to say that booking Barry for our wedding was the best decision we made during our wedding planning.

We are delighted with our fantastic wedding video and we can’t thank Barry enough for the job he’s done.

From the moment we booked Diamond Lights Barry was regularly in contact to make sure every little detail was correct for our big day.

At the wedding rehearsal he was so helpful in both describing in detail the job he would be doing and also a bit of advice for us both including a few tips for the groom on his best man speech!

On the day he was always there to help if needed but when he was filming he often remained un-noticed which helped get some fantastic natural footage that we didn’t see on the day.

He also gave our 2 best men a pep-talk before their speech which I know they really appreciated!

The wedding video itself was beyond our expectations.

We knew the video was going to be good from the examples that Barry had given to us before we booked, but the way he captured the whole day was just perfect.

We had given Barry a list of songs to have on the video and he positioned them perfectly to suit the different parts of the day.

Overall we can’t recommend Barry highly enough.

The way he has captured the whole day is truly magical and we are so grateful to have this video to re-live our big day over and over again.

Thank you so much again for the fantastic job you have done. We really appreciate it and we will certainly be recommending you to everyone we know!

Hi Barry,

We have watched our DVD and we want to say a massive thank you for doing such an amazing job!

There were so many things that we had missed or forgotten and you captured all of it so we can treasure the memories forever.

I also want to mention that even though two of the most important people in my life could not be there, you still managed to make me feel that they were with me every step of the way, and I cant thank you enough for that.

You are a true professional and your dedication to your work shows in your beautiful DVDs.

I will definitely be recommending you to anybody who is mad enough to go through the stress of planning a wedding, as you have the ability to calm any bride or groom (or chief bridesmaid in our Donna’s case!).

Once again THANK YOU and you’re a star!

You really showed both mine and Ben’s personalities throughout the day!! I especially loved the vows as it got me laughing all over again!!

You made us feel really at ease and it is definitely a lovely memory of the day.

“..What you do is a wonderful wonderful thing and we won’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone. ….

Oh Barry, we don’t know where to start or what words to use that will thank you enough for what you have done.

Delivered this morning, the best money we ever spent across our whole wedding. It’s absolutely fantastically produced and the music mix is superb.

The black and white, the fading, timing of the music, it’s all perfect – the bit you left in about the best man being assimilated – hilarious!!!

One thing that has struck me throughout the whole film is that what you’ve given me isn’t just a recording of my wedding day, but precious memories and reminders of the family and friends who mean so much to us.

My parents are elderly and have both been through illness this last couple of years, my Dad having had cancer treatment just 2 days before the wedding – no matter what happens, you have given me the best thing anyone ever could, and that is memories of my parents when they are no longer here.

I will never be able to thank you enough for that.

What you do is a wonderful wonderful thing and we won’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone.

Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.

“..We honestly could not recommend you more! You truly are the best at what you do….

Hi Barry,

We cannot thank you enough for our amazing wedding DVD…..IT IS PERFECT

In less than a week we have already watched it countless times!

We are so glad we chose you to film our special day. From initially meeting you, you put us at ease and gave us a really good insight into what you would be doing on the day and gave us some great advice which came to be extremely helpful especially during Andrews speech.

On the day itself you really did go over and above. As well as capturing the footage you were on hand for our every need, even carrying my bouquet at one point!

So many of our guests commented on how lovely and friendly you were as you had taken the time to interact with them throughout the day. We have also had lots of comments about how people were not even aware they were being filmed most of the time, which is great as it is so natural.

As soon as we pressed play on the film there were tears, it is just amazing how it takes you back to the day immediately and you can re-live it all!

Your use of the music we chose is fabulous, every song fits perfectly, even down to the lyrics matching certain moments. It is evident the time and care you have taken to produce this wonderful DVD.

I could go on and on about how brilliant it is.

Some great moments are from the evening reception showing all of our guests dancing, laughing and having fun which is lovely to see after planning the day for so long seeing everyone enjoying themselves. It would not have been possible to see all of this without you.

The guest messages are hilarious how they are all edited together, they make us laugh out loud every time we watch it.

Sadly almost 3 months after our wedding day my Grandad passed away. Having this footage of him and his last happy moments with us means so much more than words can express.

We honestly could not recommend you more! You truly are the best at what you do.

Your communication throughout was fantastic, as I’m sure any Bride & Groom will understand it is great to know that you care about it just as much as us and take such attention to detail in every aspect. Even down to your final email after we received our DVD always so personal.

It really was our pleasure meeting you and having you film our special day!

Thank you so much,

“..And now to the film itself… It is stunning!

Barry Hewitt- videographer. Fountain of all wedding knowledge. Comical, creative and general artistic genius. And most of all a stand out, reliable, professional and all round top bloke.

We knew prior to booking how good Diamond Lights (or Barry as they are one and the same) are, as Barry filmed my sister’s wedding last year. Even knowing this and actually seeing my sister’s film (which was beautiful) did not really prepare us for how jaw droppingly excellent our film is! But I am getting ahead of myself…I first want to comment on the experience of having Barry as our videographer both in the build up to and on the day itself.

Barry’s exceptional organisational skills coupled with a warm, relaxed and reassuring manner was literally a God send in what for us (and particularly me as the bride) was a bit of a crazy time building up to the wedding. Barry succeeded in filling a mega worry pot with confidence that everything would be fine and did this through his manner but also in his honesty about the day in a way that we had heard from no one else. Barry made us feel like no question was stupid and every detail was thought about, discussed and sorted which gave us an immense feeling of clarity and calm in the midst of wedding planning chaos! Barry’s communication leading up to the day was excellent, we never had any doubt or confusion over what was going on which again added to our feeling of calm.

On the day itself Barry was a hero, going above and beyond the call of duty in so many ways, from calming the nerves of both Nick and I prior to walking down the aisle to picking us both up with his humorous and frankly fantastic outlook on life when we were both ready to drop during key parts of the day. Barry picked us up when we had had enough and was brilliant at picking up on what we needed at the time without us having to say a word. The truly amazing bit is Barry did all this yet for the most part that he was filming both us and all our guests, we did not know he was there.

And now to the film itself… It is stunning! Barry has captured the day so perfectly in a way I did not believe was possible. He has captured everyone and everything that was happening on the day and got the real feel for the day which is just magical. It is just a joy to watch and has provided us with many belly laughs and happy tears. The way Barry has used the music we selected is just fantastic and it feels as though each song fits perfectly to the moment it is accompanying in our film. Our wedding video is truly something we will treasure and keep coming back to to watch time and time again.

If anyone is in any doubt as to whether they should book Diamond Lights then take it from us it is TOTALLY worth it. In our opinion Barry really is the best at what he does and really helped us have the best day ever!

Thanks Barry for our amazing film and all your hard work.

All the best.

Love Liz and Nick

” It is the most amazing DVD ever …it’s better than any Hollywood Blockbuster.

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

” Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Barry – you are simply the best…

Hiya Barry,

Well we really don’t know how to begin to put into words of how amazing Diamond Lights are,

We met Barry a week or so before our wedding and from the moment we met him he was a delight to speak to.  At this point we were both a little nervous about our big day but he really did put our mind at ease and he made us laugh.

He arrived on our wedding morning at around 10am and met Kev who was getting very nervous but he relaxed him and I met Barry just before I walked down the aisle and he was very cheerful and advised everything is all set to go so I felt ready myself.

Barry went above and beyond his job on the day,  it was a rather hot day and he kept us both hydrated by getting us glasses of water throughout the day which was a big help. He was extremely friendly with all our friends and family and everyone was saying how lovely he was and nothing was too much trouble.

He was such a big help on the day and we really didn’t know he was there. He remained in the background and provided us so much privacy in our ceremony and we actually forgot he was filming. He stayed till very late on in the evening and captured all the evening reception getting into full swing.

We received the DVD just before Xmas and I know he stayed up editing for numerous late nights to ensure we had it finished and delivered for Xmas as we planned our family to watch it on Christmas Day.

We cannot thank him enough for the amount of time and effort he has put into making our DVD so truly amazing, it was the best present we could have asked for.

The DVD is 2 Hours and 30 mins long and is really worth every penny, we had picked a song list but Barry had complete control of where the songs would go and he really knows what he is doing. Every song we picked was placed into relevant sections made us think they were made for that part.

We all loved the DVD and we both looked so very happy and relaxed on the film. All our guests are smiling and you can tell everyone enjoyed themselves on the day, it really is a pleasure to watch, we have already watched it about 5 times.

Barry added some extras into the DVD which we were not expecting for example in the Guest Messages segment were he did a special “News Broadcast” style message my brother did, the whole set up of it is professional and had us all in fits of laughter.

We cannot thank you enough for all what you have done, you’re a wonderful person who really does love his job and that itself is a credit to you. You made our wedding so very special and we cannot wait to have kids to show them in the near future.

If anyone is thinking “should we get a wedding DVD, can we afford it ?” stop right there. It is completely worth the money and if anyone is camera shy – we didn’t notice him (don’t mean to offend you there Barry), he was hidden away with our guests and he really did feel like one of our friends on the day and we cannot imagine not having him there.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Barry – you are simply the best.

All our love

Mr and Mrs Rimmer
