Comments from couples that have had there wedding film shot by Simon Clarke Films
SOME KIND WORDS FROM MY AWESOME COUPLES
SOPHIE & JAMES
The moment we saw Simon's portfolio we knew he was the perfect fit for our special day! Simon's work stood out amongst all the others due to it's unique approach and amazing creativity, and when it came to our wedding, he certainly did not disappoint! We are absolutely blown away by the feature film (and preview) and can honestly say it's more special than any photo could ever be. We have watched it over and over again and cannot help getting emotional every time! It entirely captures the true essence of the day, which was laid back, rustic and filled with happiness! Working with Simon was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! We instantly connected and the whole wedding party felt completely relaxed in his presence. Somehow Simon managed to be there for every wonderful moment without us realising he was actually there! We had so much fun together and would recommend Simon to anyone like-minded, who is looking for a truly innovative, magical and heart-felt experience.
KATHERINE & DARREN
I have one piece of advice for any bride and groom wanting to have the most perfect day: Hire Simon and Anna! Seriously, as soon as you've found your date make sure these two are available... It's the best decision we made. Yes, yes, I know it feels a bit extravagant and it's one of the 'nice-to-have' items on your budget, but after the guests have gone, the confetti has been swept up and the bouquet has been passed on, you have a perfect reminder of the most minute detail, and they capture everything in a truly stunning and beautiful way. Take videography off your 'nice-to-have' list and put it on the 'must have' pile instead. It's totally worth it. It's hard as bride and groom to let strangers into your life to share one of the biggest days you have as a couple; yet we feel honoured that Simon and Anna joined in on our day. They're not only ridiculously talented they are also ridiculously lovely... and totally in love which really helps when you want every supplier to be a happy one!! Thank you so much, words are not enough.
EMILY & OLIVER
Simon and Anna were recommended to us by friends and I have to say it was the best decision we made for our wedding day. They worked seamlessly in partnership with our photographer and by the end of the day it was sad to wish them goodbye. Since receiving our beautiful film, put together perfectly with a great choice of songs, I never get bored of watching it! Simon and Anna were so great we have since gone on to recommend them to a number of friends! Thank you so much for capturing beautiful lasting memories on film for us!
EMILY & DAVID
For David and I there was one thing that was the most important to us when we began planning our wedding, the videographer! We knew that nothing would capture the emotions of the day like a video, and we were right. We began looking in to videographers straight away and one evening came across Simon's website and sat for ages and watched every single film on the blog......we were hooked! We arranged to meet Simon and knew straight away that he was our guy, not only were his films amazing, he was polite, funny and so easy to have a chat with; we knew he would fit perfectly in to our day and make everyone around him feel completely comfortable! On the day, he did just that!! When we watched our wedding film for the first time we cried, laughed and felt everything that we had on the day.....it was incredible! The film captured every little detail of the day and every emotion, it is just beautiful. We still love nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa and watching our film, and are so greatful to Simon for capturing such beautiful memories for us! Thank you so so much!
KATHARINE & GARETH
We both remember watching our wedding film for the first time and being so overwhelmed with how beautifully Simon captured the mood and detail of the day.The quality of the film and the way he captures the light is magical and working with Anna means that so much of the day is covered. Every time we've watched it since we've noticed something new and it's brought the fantastic memories flooding back. The chats we had with Simon in the run up to the wedding gave us complete confidence that he'd do a great job and we couldn't have asked for more. Simon's style of filming is very discreet so most of the guests didn't know they were being filmed - all the better for catching those brilliant dance floor shots! Our photographer also really enjoyed working with Simon. Our wedding film means so much to us and we'll always be grateful to Simon for doing such a wonderful job.
CHARLOTTE & MATTHEW
People often see having a videographer as a "want" but not an "essential". I totally disagree. Simon (with help from his wife, Anna) is incredible. The sneak preview and the 20 minute feature film capture memories of the day which photographs just cannot do justice to - the way my wedding dress moved, the chinking of glasses during the speeches and the hugs and wishes of congratulations after the ceremony. Simon has a real skill of making sure he has all those moments are captured and his film has had pretty much all our family and friends in tears - beautifully edited!! It's also a real pleasure to watch the speeches and ceremony back in full - the day goes in such a blur that you forget most of the details in a haze of happiness so to be able to watch it all over and over again is a real pleasure. A huge thank you!
NATASHA & JAMES
Simon you captured the magic of our day and everytime we watch it back (which is a lot) I get butterflies. It brings all the incredible memories of our day back to life. You made filming fun and actually allowed James and I to sneak away and just enjoy being newly weds together!
Watching the film for the first time, hearing each other's messages, seeing the speeches, our first dance, our friends and family tearing up the dance floor and our little moments where it was just the two of us had us laughing and crying throughout! Your film will always help us remember what a happy start we had to our married life surrounded by all the people we love the most, we are so happy and grateful you were there!
