and now for something different....

So, thought I would share this as it went down so well last Saturday...

I was lucky to get the chance to film my sisters wedding but decided to go for the ultimate package for her and did the hen night, stag weekend, full day and reception.

But as a gift to them I managed to film (with the help of all the friends on the stag day and family at other times) a short film... they had no idea, and we played it at the wedding reception directly after the speeches.

I know the quality is a bit off but it really was all about the content....I hope you will enjoy watching it as much as I did in filming, editing and showing them!

Let me know what you think as I am thinking about offering this as a package option to couples who want their stag nights recorded....

Ignore the first 20 secs, was a standing joke during the bestman's speech...

That was entertaining. I'm sure it was a big hit with everyone, especially since so many people got to be a part of it.

I know you had people reading off of a lyrics sheet, but in the future (if you're looking to add this as a paid product) I would lose the sheet and get them to just do the lyrics from memory. I'm assuming you were playing the music for them, but if not, then that could be extremely helpful to get their mouths more in sync with the song.

For a free job, though, it was worth it. That guy that jumped into the water was crazy! Too bad you couldn't catch him actually hitting the water.
