We know plenty of others that are not so lucky and have had to wait 3 months or more to see their photos, and when they did, they had a watermark of the photographers name across them so they couldn't print or use them.
I'm proud to say - we are very different.
With Wiltshire Wedding Photography there is no hanging around! We email you one of the best photos from your wedding day within 2 days, so that you can email it to friends and family, and upload it to Facebook etc. We also prioritise the editing and delivery of your photos, so that they are all edited and sent to you within 2 weeks! And we always give you all of the photos in the highest quality - there is no watermark or copyright on the images. We want you to be able to print your wedding photos as often and as big as you like, after all it's your big day, not ours!
Wedding videos before you return from honeymoon!
Exactly the same applies with the beautiful wedding videos we produce at Wiltshire Wedding Video. Our years of film production and project management experience means we guarantee professionalism, quality and delivery of your wedding video within 2 to 3 weeks. Typically the DVD copies of your wedding video will be in the letterbox when you return from honeymoon - the perfect way to relive the special day when you return from your time celebrating together. The more complex DVDs, programmed with lots of extra films from the big day take longer to edit and produce, but are typically with you in under 3 weeks.
So with Wiltshire Wedding Photography and Wiltshire Wedding Video you won't be hanging around to relive your wedding day!

The photography project was led by Jackie McDine of Wiltshire Wedding Photography and was funded by V. The books were designed by Jackie and feature a personal profile of each project participant, together with their 3 best photos - and the soft back cover features the 'TEAM' and 'SPIRIT' group shots of all participants.
Thank you to all the participants, everyone who has helped us make this project happen, let us photograph their team or organisation, and those who came along to our exhibition.
We are currently putting together plans for a new photography project, that will be free to participate and inspire you to use your camera every day... so keep checking back!

Back in August Jackie McDine launched the project "Team Spirit: A Community Photography Project" in Westbury, Wiltshire.
Three months later, and the project has enabled us to make new friends, share skills and techniques and shoot some really interesting photos. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience for all participants and we're really excited that you will have the opportunity to see our work next week!
Photos by all 13 project participants will be exhibited at the Laverton Hall in Westbury and we would be delighted if you could join us to enjoy the work and have a cup of tea and cake - and yes everything is free! It would be great if you could also forward this information on to friends and colleagues, and even add it to your facebook status.
The exhibition opens on Friday 12th November from 6-9pm and will run again on Saturday 13th November from 12-5pm. Come along to enjoy the photographs - you will have a chance to meet the photographers and discuss their work, as well as enjoying a free cup of tea and piece of cake. The project has been funded by v - inspiring young volunteers across the UK, and has been kindly supported by Matravers School.
All of the work is based upon the theme of 'Team Spirit' and 13 participants of all ages and abilities took part in the project, led by Jackie McDine of Wiltshire Wedding Photography.
We hope to see you on Friday 12th or Saturday 13th at the exhibition.

With us a wedding video is exactly what you want it to be - whether it is a highlights film of the day edited to your favourite song, a full version of the ceremony to show your children and grandchildren in years to come, the full speeches, a video guestbook of personal messages left by your family and friends or whatever you desire. And obviously what you want on your DVD will also depend on the budget you have available - which is why we tailor every wedding video to your unique requirements.
Our typical prices are £500 - £750, but some may be even cheaper depending on what you want on your wedding DVD. So if you're getting married and not sure what kind of wedding video to go for, or if you have enough money for one, then get in touch and speak to Jamie for more information and a price. Email: email@example.com
We hope you enjoy the trailer.

In May, Jamie was commissioned by the National Trust to produce a series of films at the home of photography - the stunning Lacock Abbey and Fox Talbot Museum, in Lacock, Wiltshire. The films document the photography festival that took place over the May Bank Holiday weekend, 2010. This film shows a variety of the activities and fun family events that took part over the course of the weekend, including: historic interpreters playing the parts of Fox Talbot and his family and friends; historic photographs made by Richard Cynan-Jones using early processes; digital pinhole photography and much more! The films are available to view in the digital gallery at the Fox Talbot Museum and are enjoyed by a large number of visitors on a daily basis.
Jamie's film talents also span the fields of music video production, where he has worked with the likes of Just Jack and Ian Brown. He has also worked with the German band 'Begbie' who have just released their debut album "The Age of Golden Lies". The band recorded the soundtrack to Jamie's critically acclaimed documentary "Blauweiss" in 2007, and this is the music video to the film's title track "Blue and White", released on the Heartdisco label.
So if you are looking for someone with the talent, experience and professionalism to produce your wedding video then look no further. And as we work professionally in film production every day of the week, we have all the equipment and don't charge you ridiculous amounts of money just because it is a wedding! Our typical prices are £500-£750, but it may be cheaper depending on your requirements... so get in touch now for more details! firstname.lastname@example.org
And check out the website for samples of our wedding videos: http://www.wiltshireweddingvideo.info/

The first we'd like to mention are Elite Formal Hire in Trowbridge. They really take care to make sure you are hiring the exact suit you want for your wedding day (and yes they also do fancy dress costumes if you'd prefer to go as Captain Jack Sparrow) and make sure everything fits perfectly and comfortably. They also double check everything when making the order, just to see if there is a cheaper alternative if hiring as a package, or individual items. Very nice people and we are happy to recommend them!
Check them out online: http://www.eliteformalhire.co.uk/
You can check the others out direct from our sites, and we'll be giving a bigger mention to each one soon!

Team Spirit is a 2 month photography project being led by Jackie McDine of Wiltshire Wedding Photography and is completely free for people of all ages and abilities to participate. So far the group have been out on location in the eerie Wiltshire ghost town of Imber, at rugby matches, concerts and at various local groups and organisations that embody 'team spirit'. They have also been picking up skills, tips and techniques to improve their shots, or how to edit their photos.
If you would like to follow the project, then please visit the blog: http://teamspiritwestbury.blogspot.com/
And we would love to see you at the exhibition at the Laverton Hall in Westbury on November 12th and 13th, for a free drink and look at the groups work in print.

In July, Jackie and I got married together at Old Wardour Castle, which was a beautiful and unforgettable day. Having gone through the joys and stresses of planning our own wedding, we really appreciate what couples are going through and have tried to make our services as stress free as possible, as well as making sure you get the most amazing images and DVD to treasure your special day!
We've had the pleasure of shooting wedding videos and photos at some truly magical venues around the region - Manor House in Castle Combe was stunning, especially as it was bathed in sunlight, and the picturesque church in Mells, near Frome, was a real highlight.
We initially decided to limit the amount of weddings we shoot to one per weekend, and I think this has helped us to provide a first class service - as we can really focus on producing the best possible film or photos of your day and take our time to edit them professionally and to the highest possible standard. It also means that couples usually end up receiving their DVDs or photos within 2 or 3 weeks of the wedding - the majority of our customers come back from honeymoon to find their DVDs waiting for them and can watch them straight away... without having to wait around for weeks and weeks!
And people have asked us how we can keep our prices so low, when we put so much work into it, and only shoot one wedding per weekend. Well, as we also work in the industry professionally, producing films for various organisations, or directing shoots for film projects, then we have all the equipment, skills, and regular work, so we don't need to charge extortionate amounts for your wedding video or photos. And we know how expensive weddings can be, so we keep our prices sensible and affordable.
We are already taking the first few bookings for May and June 2011, but still have plenty of availability for the rest of 2010 - so don't panic, even if you think you've left it too late, give us a call and see if we can capture your special day on film or in photos.
And this week we've finally found the time to produce a leaflet about our services, which you can view and download by clicking on the image below (it would be great if you could pass it on to friends, colleagues or relatives who are thinking of getting married):
And finally, we'd like to say a big thank you to all of our customers and everyone that has recommended us, forwarded our details, followed us on facebook and supported us. It really is appreciated, and as a special thank you we do have a couple of amazing prizes to giveaway, which are very simple to win. Just invite your friends to follow us on Facebook (especially engaged friends!) and you're in with a chance. Just visit the following link and click 'Suggest to Friends" and click all of the friends you would like to invite. Job done! GO TO THE FACEBOOK PAGE HERE
Details of the prizes can be found in the previous post. Good luck and best wishes,
Jamie and Jackie

We always receive such lovely messages from the happy couple and we're delighted to have captured their special day in pictures and on film, knowing that they'll treasure it forever. We take a real pride in our work, after all this is the most important day of your lives.
It is often said that 'word of mouth' is the best possible form of advertising, and we've found that to be true. Our satisfied customers have told their friends and family about us, shown their wedding video and photos, and as a result their friends or relatives have booked us for their wedding and birthday celebrations.
Similarly, our friends have told their friends and family about our wedding photography and video services and as a result we have produced their wedding videos and photos. Thank you so much to all of our friends and customers for recommending us, for your kind comments and please keep spreading the word!
We would really appreciate it if you could tell all your friends and family about us and invite them to 'Like' us on Facebook, or direct them to our websites. Not only do we offer a friendly and professional service, but our prices are very good value and we just need more and more people to know about Wiltshire Wedding Video and Wiltshire Wedding Photography.
And as a thank you, we have a couple of special prizes up for grabs for those of you recommending us and inviting your friends to follow us on Facebook.
PRIZE ONE - one of you will win a free photoshoot.
PRIZE TWO - one of you will win the opportunity to record your own Christmas video message, all produced and edited in HD, and uploaded for you to send the link to your friends and family at Christmas time (no need to send cards this year!)
The easiest way to invite your friends is to visit http://www.facebook.com/pages/West-Ashton-United-Kingdom/Wiltshire-Wedding-Video/127461750616023
Click on the link "Suggest to friends" and then click on all your friends to invite them. 30 seconds, job done and you could win a great prize... and just as importantly, you will be really helping us out.
Or you could simply give out our website addresses:
Thanks again for all your support and good luck with winning one of the two special prizes.

We have also changed the order of the sample videos on the site, just in case users were giving up with a slow connection after only watching one clip, and added an extended testimonial section in the introduction (that you can also skip).
So now we need YOUR help!
Does the site make sense to navigate - can you find the information or section you are looking for? Are the links obvious and large enough to click? And is it clear what you have to click to go to the next video, and that you can go to the next video whilst watching another? Is there anything you dislike or would like to be changed/improved.
The Apple Problem - After testing other video and flash sites online, I am concerned as to whether the website works on an iPad or iPhone as well as other mobile devices like Blackberry. If you have one of these can you please check the site for me and let me know if the main content and videos work on your device... otherwise I will have to look into creating an extra new compatible site!
All comments are very gratefully received, we read all of them, and they help us to improve our websites, the work we do and the service we provide, so please respond to this post through our Facebook page.

And this week, through our Flickr page and Facebook group, fans and friends were able to decide on which of the new images would make it into the new gallery for the website. The options were given and wedding photo "Bench" was a clear winner in colour, whilst "Looking Up" and "Window" ran very close (edging it by one or two votes out of 50). The gallery is now online and available to view at: www.wiltshireweddingphotography.org.uk
Simply open the Weddings specific gallery to view the images.

The project is being led by local photographer Jackie McDine, of Wiltshire Wedding Photography, who comes from Germany, but has been living and working in Wiltshire since 2008. The project is being funded by Vcashpoint and is inspired by London 2012, with many values of the games being involved within the photography work.
"We want photographers of all levels of ability. Having the equipment and the experience isn't necessary. What is important is an interest and enthusiasm for photography and to meet new people. This project will bring together people from all backgrounds and we will all work together to take great photos, edit them together and exhibit them together at the end of the project.
Working together you get so many more ideas, as well as picking up tips and techniques. We really want to encourage team spirit and friendship between the members of the group as well as helping the participants to improve their camera skills."
The project will culminate in an exhibition to be hosted at the Laverton Hall in November, featuring the work of all participants. And the project is completely FREE to participants, who will have access to resources and facilities, courtesy of the project leaders and Matravers School, Westbury.
If you would like to join the team and take part in the project, or for more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

This means, their DVD will have all of these items edited together to select from the menu - either to play the whole day, or to specify a chapter or section of the day.
Finally here is an image taken from the edit of guest arrivals - perhaps you might recognise the guest?

Here are a few testimonials from our customers:
Gemma & Laurence - wedding DVD- fab!!!!!
We are so pleased with how our wedding video turned out, you did an amazing job! We have watched the highlights several times now, really glad you recommended that we had one. The guest book was a real personal touch as well. If anyone is thinking of using Jamie to record their wedding day, we would strongly recommend him. He listened to everything that we asked of him and made everything really simple and relaxed that you actually forget that he his filming you. The DVD was even ready before we went on honeymoon- What more can you ask!!!!
Kristy and Mark - excellent video, great service!
Jamie made our wedding dvd in April 2010 and we are thrilled with it!... it's such a beautiful reminder of our special day. During filming Jamie was professional and discreet, we barely noticed him on the day but he managed to get a lot of great footage. The resulting video has been skillfully edited to the music we chose and watching it just takes us right back there. We'd highly recommend Jamie to other couples getting married.
Jonathan & Tracey - A Very Happy Couple
Jackie took our wedding photos and we were so pleased with them. She listened to what we wanted and captured the feel of our special day perfectly. She did not take over, but worked around us, which was wonderful. The only problem we had was choosing which of the many wonderful photos we were going to have printed. Tracey & Jonathan

I must admit that just watching their wedding film brings back the emotions of the day for me, of true love, happiness, family and a real sense of humour, and I was only producing the film! So I'm delighted always to hear that the happy couple love the film as much as I do and it helps them to relive and enjoy their day over and over again.
If you'd like to watch Christian and Beth's wedding video, please watch it below:

The film is edited to a song of their choice, Bon Jovi's "Thank you for loving me", which was also the song for their first dance.
Congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple!

1) Highlights Film - a 3mins 30secs film of highlights from the wedding day, cut to their favourite song, Michael Bublé's "Everything".
2) Full Ceremony - from the entrance of the bride, to the exit of the bride and groom, this is the full ceremony, edited between the two camera angles and shots of guests etc.
3) The Speeches - the speeches and toasts in all their entirety.
These films have been programmed and burnt onto a Video DVD, that the couple can play on their TV and DVD Player, or Computer, or any device with a DVD Player. When they insert the DVD, a simple, yet beautiful, menu loads with their list of film options, for them to select 'play'. Below is an image of the menu playing on a TV - the DVDs are typically produced with widescreen (16:9) menu and film content.
And of course, the DVDs are presented beautifully as well, in printed DVD cases, and with a gold lightscribe (laser printed) disc. Christian and Beth's gold DVD is shown below.
And we always supply the happy couple with 3 copies of the DVD (typically they keep one for themselves and give one each to their parents or families).
We can also supply the highlights film as a high quality video file suitable for the internet - so you can add it to your YouTube, Vimeo, Myspace or FaceBook pages, or of course to a blog or website of your own. Years of film production experience and creating video for the web means that you get the best possible quality files, to then share your wedding film with family and friends around the world. Christian and Beth's wedding highlights will be online soon, so please check back.
For more information contact: email@example.com

Thankfully we were able to hand over the camera and video camera to our colleagues and friends for the day and then produce the wedding film from the footage shot. We got married at Old Wardour Castle near Tisbury, Wiltshire, and had our reception at Cleeve House in Seend, and enjoyed a fantastic wedding day with our closest family and friends - from England and Germany.
Watch the film here:
