What an amazing venue in Canterbury - ceremony on an island, huge Kentish barn and vintage carousel ala Mary Poppins! Awesome day!

See Kelly & Mark

Liked it Dana, some nice touches there. Wished I'd have thought of actually getting on the merry-go-round! We Worked there last year...and it rained that day too! Which was a shame as the couple had come down from the North as we get better/drier weather in Kent!

This is our highlights clip: http://vimeo.com/19517935 The couple chose the music...not your normal highlights music, so a bit of a head scratcher. :)

Thanks Arthur,

Yes, your couple certainly chose some interesting music. I am quite fussy when it comes to the music that is used on hilights. While I have used clients choices during the last 18 months, mainly, I rely on what I have searched for and have on file. Most couples have no idea how important the music (and all audio) is to the success and impact of their final film. As 90% of our bookings come through our website, I want samples there and on the log to reflect who we are and what we do to the best of my abilities. So far, fingers crossed, I have had nothing but praise for my choices and kost couples end up asking who it was we used so they can go and buy it!

I did however think AC/DC worked brilliantly

I actually don't mind when a couple choose something unusual...it's a bit more of a challenge. Much prefer that to getting a run-of-the-mill 'dooby dooo' type thing (We all know what ones they are ;) ) I do my best to talk the couple out of those! On this occasion, Zoe told me that this clip made the hair on the back of her neck stand up. Job done then. :D

By the way, it actually annoyed me to see the 'tog gormlessly following the Bride over the bridge in your shot. Completely spoilt it for you. What on earth was he thinking? :mad:

I agree with you Arthur-far rather a bit of different and more interesting music to work with. My partner in crime loved your clip and the way you had brought it together. As for my Tog-he was a friend of the bride who was a professional photo journalist, not a wedding tog, so he was not the most considerate of anyone else on the day, but plesant enough all told.
