My wife and I married in 2008 and at the time a wedding videographer was an expense too much, but the lack of a video always felt a bit wrong. I now realise I had my priorities wrong - we should definitely have cut the harpist or something else immaterial. The pictures we have are fantastic but nothing brings the day's events to life like footage of the ceremony and speeches and everyone having a really good time. So, some 5 years later, and with the catalyst of wanting to show my new born baby the day his mum and dad got married, I decided to try and rectify the situation. Fortunately a couple of friends had captured some of the day on video, but unfortunately the footage was not expertly taken and sometimes of a very poor quality. Martin and I discussed ways of producing an elegant video of the day with what we had available, and via combination of the shaky video footage, our photos and a beautiful soundtrack, Martin worked his magic and produced an end result of real quality. Naturally it's not as great as having a professional film it, but at least I know I have brought the day to life and will be so pleased to be able to show it to my son when he's a bit older. So to conclude, with the wonderful benefit of hindsight, I can't stress how important it is to have a proper video of your wedding day. And I also can't speak highly enough of the work Martin did. Thanks Martin.

"We are so pleased that we chose Posterity Video to document the best day of our lives. We met with Martin at our wedding venue in advance to discuss the order of the day and the music that we would like. We knew instantly that Martin was an excellent choice. Martin was so professional and friendly – we barely noticed him throughout the day because he was so discrete and if people are concerned about a videographer being intrusive, you have nothing to worry about with Martin. The wedding DVD was ready and waiting for us when we returned from our honeymoon, which was brilliant because we were already reminiscing about our wedding day and couldn’t wait to watch it. My goodness…. we were blown away…. Martin really captured the beautiful venue and the fantastic weather that we enjoyed. From start to finish we were hooked, it was put together beautifully. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Posterity Video to anyone looking to have a fantastic keepsake of their day, something to treasure and look at in years to come. Thank you so much."

“Just finished watching our wedding DVD and all I can say is it’s absolutely AMAZING!!! Thank you so much Martin for all the hard work you put in to making it, it is PERFECT and something we will treasure forever. We cannot wait to show our family and friends a look back at our very special day. We are so happy that we had our day videoed so we can watch it over and over again and one day will be able to show our children the day their mum and dad got married. Thank you once again, I will recommend you to anyone I'm so chuffed with it!!”
Clare and James
“At the outset James and I were quite dubious about having a videographer filming at our wedding. I was particularly concerned it would be too intrusive and the bridal party and guests would not be able to relax and enjoy themselves. At our initial meeting Martin reassured us that this would not be the case and he was absolutely correct. We honestly did not see him all day except on the few occasions where he needed to complete small tasks such as removing the microphone off the groom after the ceremony. Even this was something out of a James Bond movie; he swooped in, took the microphone and was away in the blink of an eye! We have had so many positive comments from the guests about the videographer and how professional and discreet he was throughout the day.
Martin took time to meet with us before at our wedding venue where he spent time over the details of the day and walked around the building. He is an extremely experienced videographer who kindly gave advice over the smallest details of the wedding which we had not even considered; he is thoughtful and does care about your big day. The final DVD looked and sounded truly fabulous. He cleverly edited and cut sections of his filming and backed it with our chosen pieces of music. The end product is extremely professional and we could not recommend him highly enough as a videographer! James and I laughed and cried all over again watching the DVD back and so did the rest of the family. A huge thank you.”

It is absolutely wonderful! You even captured some of Stockholm's beautiful scenery! And the music! I don't know what to say - I am speechless! Thank you!!!!"
Anna and Lee
“I just wanted to email and say thank you so much for the wedding video you made for us. It was great to have it waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon. It was so much fun to watch, to re-live the day and to see so many bits of the day that we missed. We both thought it was put together so brilliantly, it was professional, touching (without being cheesy) and even funny! We loved it and are so glad that we decided to do it. Thank you, we will really treasure it."

“Posterity Video produced a well balanced representation of the wedding day which exceeded all expectations. The visuals have been very well matched to the audio and we particularly like the overlay sound technique used during the various ‘getting ready’ sequences. We were impressed by Martin’s professionalism from our first meeting. His company logo was on his clothing indicating an attention to detail, which extended through his creative work. Martin was unobtrusive whilst filming throughout the day. His suggestion of including pictures of the bride and groom whilst growing up and a video diary from specific guests during the evening, both worked particularly well on the finished DVD. He also included a finale of ‘stills’ from the days filming which were chosen with sensitivity as a wonderful overview and record of the entire wedding day. The growing up photographs, the preparations on the day, both of the bridal party and groom and groomsmen, the guests arriving and wedding celebrations plus the ‘stills’ from the day, have provided a delightful and precious record of a very important day in several peoples lives. As a family we couldn't be more satisfied or delighted with the finished result." (Rodney & Helen, parents of the Bride)

“We’re thrilled that we chose Posterity Video Productions to produce our wedding video. Martin has been simply excellent from start to finish. He made us feel comfortable and confident right from the beginning. He’s extremely helpful, and goes that extra mile to help couples. For example, he even sent us recommended routes for our horse & carriage ride, as we were unfamiliar with the area. The finished DVD is simply wonderful and couldn’t be better. The horse & carriage footage was fantastic - we’re completely over the moon that he managed to capture on film such a wonderful experience! Martin promptly sent the final DVD so it was waiting for us upon return from honeymoon. We have since watched the DVD numerous times, and cannot stop crying!”
Christine and Matthew
“Thank you so, so very much for the wonderful coverage of Christine and Matthew’s wedding. I cannot stop watching it. It is perfect in every way; you have captured lots of things that I did not manage to see as I was busy with Christine and her bridesmaids. You managed to film all the day without us being aware of your presence. All I can say is what a wonderful job you have done and will recommend your services to friends and relatives without any hesitation.” Barbara (Mother of the bride).
Vicky and Martin
"We had the most amazing wedding and can look back at it because Martin filmed the whole day perfectly. He captured the moments that we didn’t see (guests arriving at the church, bride getting ready etc) and the special moments that we shared together. Martin was part of the day and the filming was never in our way or intrusive, our DVD is so natural and captures the day perfectly with the music we choose set beautifully to it. The special messages from close family and friends was such a lovely surprise at the end of the DVD as we did not see these happening on the day and it really captured how people felt about the day, a lovely keepsake. We would happily recommend Martin to anyone – you will never forget the special moments of the day and you will not want to stop watching the DVD again and again! "
