This year, 2009…
…so far, I have filmed two Iranian and one Jewish Wedding, one gorgeous Winter Wedding at Great Fosters and a lovely Civil Ceremony at Brandshatch Place in Kent. I have also been back at Highclere Castle, Pennyhill Park and Newick Park and got recommended by The Sculpture Gallery at Woburn.
I filmed a party at Lincoln College in Oxford and got to check out some new Venues for me – the quite wonderful Notley Abbey in Haddenham and equally gorgeous Cain Manor in Arford, Hampshire, both excellently run by Bijou Weddings and thoroughly recommended.
I filmed my first Civil Partnership – one of my favourite Wedding Photographer Neil Bailey’s wedding to his Dutch partner. No photographers to wrestle with, he was taking his own pictures…and he just sent me this one of me in action – thanks…I think:
“The Highlights were captured so perfectly and the music went so well! It was very special to watch it all back again and remember our day!…Thank you so much again, you are truly a real talent and I will def be recommending you to anyone I know.”
Lorraine & Rhys, 10 December 2009, Notley Abbey, Oxfordshire
“We received the highlights yesterday morning and they are absolutely brilliant. The mood, filming and everything is perfect and really captures the day in a way that only you seem to do. We can’t wait to see the whole thing when it is ready!”
“Thanks again for a perfect wedding video-was everything we wanted and more.”
Lucy and Phil, 4 December 2009, Moor Park, Hertfordshire
“The DVD is fabulous!”
Natasha and Conal, 21 November 2009, The Grove, Hertfordshire
“Wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for your kind and generous work you did for us as a friend and videographer for our Civil Partnership.
You have provided a wedding film we could only have dreamed of. It is perfect in so many ways. You really captured the mood well and everyone has commented on how good we look in the film.
You did exactly what we asked for. At our age, we did not think it would be possible to look good on film. Your skillful filming and editing proved this was possible. Our families are far away, it is so special to see them on film.
I think most of the time people didn’t even realise you were there and they’ve said that you allowed the day to flow naturally and that so many weddings they’ve been to that doesn’t happen.
The timings of the music and the trailers are exceptional, the way you scored the lyrics with what is actually happening in the film is truly amazing. You were so patient with us and you achieved the quality of film that we could only have dreamed of.
You were very much part of our day and we would both like to thank you so much for preserving it forever. It was wonderful to work with you and we would recommend you to anyone.”

“The video is MAGIC. I’m going to watch it every week from now on! You’ve captured everything and it’s not just us being biased as everyone we’ve shown it to thinks it’s wonderful. The family day yesterday was a success and was so lovely to see Peter’s Mum watching it, she couldn’t take her eyes off it.”
Philly and Peter, 3 October 2009, The Gherkin, London
“Congratulations on another beautiful work!…It is a beautiful production, I am a fan!”
Myra & Jeremy, 19 September 2009, Lincoln College, Oxford
“Hi Ines, I’ve been watching your Wedding Videos.
Wow, they are simply amazing, unbelievably creative and atmospheric, and the music adds to your highly stylized, and heavy on the edit productions. Make no mistake they are huge productions, and all Works of Art in their own right. Your huge technical ability is used to great effect through the complexity of your editing…like the works of many great artists… you create an alternative reality…by creating breathtaking moving images…like the Monet of the moving image. [I like that one, very poetic! Ed.]
it is completely different from the dull in comparison accurate record of the occasion video diary style I have used in the past. You are very talented and I am blown away by your ability and creativity.”

Julia and Patrick, 8 August 2009, Little Horsted Place, Horsted, Uckfield
“We have watched the video and we are absolutely thrilled with it, your attention to detail is second to none. The last dance is especially our favourite bit and what a huge secret it was too, so gorgeous.
We would both like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing such a beautiful memoir for us to cherish for ever.”
Susie & Ben, 1 August 2009, Newick Park, East Sussex

“Dear Ines, Erika and I have relived the 19th June tonight thanks to your very professional replication of our special day. We are very privileged to have you do the job and then do it so well. We are delighted you were able to assist and make our remembrance of that day so special. Many thanks.”

“What can we say – there are no words to describe how it felt watching our Wedding DVD…Your work is utterly amazing and we are so thrilled…You have managed to capture all the special little details and created a Work of Art. We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work…You truly are a star…Once again, I cannot put into words how much I love your work. Everyone who has seen it so far have been blown away and many tears have been shed at the sheer beautiful way you have captured our Special Day. You truly are the best Videographer I have ever come across.”

“A huge thanks for the Fantastic Video. Mark and I (and all the family!) were both really thrilled with it – it captures the mood of the day perfectly and fills in all the blanks for us of what everyone was up to while we were busy having photographs taken etc! Thank you for the effort you obviously put into it…We are so enjoying the Video. Many thanks again, you were very discreet on the day itself and have captured Wonderful Memories for us.”
Elizabeth & Mark, 3 January 2009, Great Fosters, Egham
“Well, 9 years on and you would be forgiven for thinking that our Wedding Video that you shot was now out of date – but NO! Everytime we watch it we are just blown away with how beautiful it is. Your combination of Style and Sophistication really help to make the video special and your Artistic Flair really shines through. The service you offer is both professional and personable – what more could a bride ask for! I’m so grateful that you made our day memorable for us and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone to use you. Thanks again.”
Victoria & Norman, 12th May 2000, Wooburn Green
“Hi Ines, Thanks for the fantastic Wedding DVD, still to this day five years on we regularly watch it, such a Masterpiece! You captured our day perfectly and can’t thank you more. I was reluctant to have one until I saw your work and I was converted. Finally Wedding DVD’s you can watch again and again!. My kids love watching too!! Thanks and keep up the good work. Lisa xxx”
Lisa & Steve, 12 June 2004, Loughborough
“Hi Ines, you did our wedding video back in March 2002 at Ashdown Park Hotel. Also you have recently converted our Video to DVD and our son and daughter absolutely love watching it, but always ask where they are in it!! We still love the video, if only to look back at how fresh faced we looked!!!!!!!!!!!”
Andrew and Courtney, 2 March 2002, Ashdown Park
“Ines!!!! Hello there!!! Well, everybody says how fantastic your Video Skills are, so I will say that I chose you to do our Wedding Video (Sep 2001) because I could see your style was eons ahead of any others and as far away from anything tacky as possible! Your advice about music to accompany the images and your incredible Flair made sure I knew we’d made the right choice! We now have two daughters who marvel at watching Mummy & Daddy in our posh frocks! Thanks so much. If anyone is in any doubt whether to book Ines for their Wedding…don’t be, you’ll love it!”
