I have been fortunate to work with some excellent people but I can recommend only the very best of course. All these have impressed me with their professional attitude and high standards. They are recommended on that basis only and don't pay me....but if they want to send me a cheque that's fine by me!

Photographers

Having a good photographer at the wedding certainly helps me produce a better video as everything is more organised and relaxed.

Toastmasters

A good toastmaster not only keeps the proceedings in order but helps the bridal party to relax and adds a real sense of occasion.

Limousines

I notice that many chauffeurs seem more keen to get home in a hurry than spend a few extra minutes at the wedding for photos! It's your day and you deserve better treatment than that. These companies will give you time and a quality product.

Venue Guide

I have filmed at most venues in the Thames Valley area and many further afield. I form my own personal opinions of each and I'd be happy to discuss them with you and save you some legwork maybe. Nowhere is perfect but some are closer to it than others! I think you have to fall in love with the place whilst being aware of any limitations. Rather than list everywhere I have been I'd just like to share with you a few of my favourites:-

Taplow House (Taplow) Lovely house and grounds. Great food. I chose it for my daughter, enough said!
Stoke Park Club
(Stoke Poges) - Palacial, nice gardens, sumptuous dining room and very good food.
Danesfield House (Marlow) - Stunning building, magnificent grounds and rooms, excellent food.
Great Fosters (Egham) - Grand manor house style with dark oak panels, beams and loads of character, plus good food.
Clearwell Castle (Forest of Dean) - A perfectly sized Gothic castle for a wedding, superb grounds. Worth a trip down the M4.
Blenheim Palace (Woodstock) - Magnificent!
Hotel du Vin (Henley-on-Thames) - Former brewery, full of character, gorgeous suites, tranquil courtyard and fine dining by the river.

Other favourites are Compleat Angler (Marlow), Tylney Hall (nr.Basingstoke), Phyllis Court Club (Henley), The Bull (Gerrards Cross), The Berystede (Ascot), Cliveden (Taplow), Waddesdon Manor Dairy (nr.Aylesbury), Barnett Hill (Wonersh), Wasing Park, (Aldermaston), Pinewood Hotel, (Slough), Crowne Plaza (Marlow), Wasing Park (Aldermaston).
