Charlene & Ben (Sept 2017) Stuart was fantastic rom the beginning when making our booking, right through to our wedding day. stuart was very professional and supportive throughout and very easy to get on with. Stuart produced some fantastic photos for us and our dvd is amazing, it was so nice to be able to watch our DVD back after as the day goes so quickly but Stuart captured absolutlely everything and everyone. Thank you so much for sharing our special day with us and giving us the best keepsake ever, that we will treasure forever. if your looking for a videographer for your wedding Book Stuart today!
Alison & Chris ( Sept 2017) We’ve just sat and watched our wedding video in full for the first time. It’s absolutely amazing to relive our wedding day, and to witness so many parts of it that we can’t remember. We had the most incredible day, I can’t believe it’s already 3 weeks since I became Mrs Eaton! 😱 Thank you so much Stuart and Richard, we are so grateful for you being part of our day and capturing everything for us to keep forever. Can’t recommend you enough!
Becky & Tom (Sept 2017) Stuart has been brilliant from day 1! He has always kept in contact and kept us updated with everything video wise for our wedding. We watched a few of his trailers and knew straight away we needed to book him! Stuart did a fantastic job! He was at my mums with me from first thing in the morning to just after our first dance, capturing all the important parts of our special day. Stuart was so easy to talk to, friendly and welcoming of everybody. All our guests commented on how great he was! We were completely blown away when we received our wedding day trailer - both of us were in tears and we keep playing it over and over despite being a mess every time! We cannot wait to receive our full DVD! Thank you so much Stuart - we would 100% recommend you to anyone getting married - we would have been so disappointed without you there to capture our day x
CHELSEA & KEVIN (AUGUST 2017) My husband and i watched our video last night, we are so glad we booked Stuart to capture our day, he really didnt miss a thing. He was with us from brial prep to after the fireworks around 10pm. The footage is beautiful and he went above and beyond on the day to help aswell as capture all the memories for us. We had our trailer the day after the wedding and the full footage was delivered straight after our honeymoon so just over 2 weeks after the day. He truly is amazing at helping keep those memories for a lifetime, we would highly recommened Stuart for anyone looking to book a videographer, if you are still unsure please dont hesitate on having your day captured its such an amazing feeling to look back on and see the happiness flying around and thats all down to stuart for his amazing skills and help through out that we can re-live this day over and over again, our memories will forever be infront of us everytime we press play, we cant thank you enough! Thanks again chelsea and kev xx
Victoria & Mike (July 2017) Stuart, where do I start?! We met you at Mike's brother's wedding a few years ago and when we began our own planning the videographer was never even discussed...we knew we wanted you to capture our day. You put us at ease from the very beginning and this rolled straight into the day itself. Your calm and relaxed approach was infectious and we all agreed that the camera was never intrusive while we were getting ready - or at any time during the day. Our guests all commented on your sense of humour and how well you worked with everybody. Our preview video had been shown to the entire village before we'd even returned from honeymoon where we admittedly had watched it multiple times ourselves! When our DVD arrived yesterday it was even better than we'd hoped for with the added bonus of lots of lovely still images put to music at the end. We cannot thank you enough for giving us a video of memories that will last forever and for capturing parts of the day that either one or both of us had managed to miss. It will certainly be well watched and we can't wait to recommend you to others. Many thanks again. Mr and Mrs Freer! Xx
Carly & Leroy (July 2017) My husband and I just watched the DVD and we are absolutely over the moon with it! On the day Stuart went above and beyond! Not only was he there to capture the day but he helped to make the day run smoothly and ensure everything was going to plan. He helped from topping up my drink whilst I was having my hair and make up done to organising everyone and ensuring the guests new what was happening throughout.
Despite me running a little over schedule on the morning, he ensured me there was plenty of time and he done his best to make sure I wasn't panicked or rushed at any point. Even as I worried about the rain he constantly reassured me.
A lot of guests came to me and said how great he was, friendly and thorough.
The trailer was online the very next morning and the DVD was ready for when we returned from honeymoon.
Thank you Stuart for everything. I feel I owe the smoothness of the day to you! And the DVD is brilliant! So glad I opted for this instead of fireworks, as I will have this to treasure forever!
Dawn Powell Mother of Groom (June 2017)) Hi Stuart x Once again I am indebted to you and your amazing skills in videography and photography. Daniel and Katie's DVD is beautiful...but of course I knew it would be after seeing Vicki and Matthew's in February. Both films are stunning and will be treasured for years to come ❤️
For anyone considering having the wedding filmed, please talk to Stuart first, as you'll be guaranteed the full package. A charming, trustworthy, talented man, who will organise your day perfectly, put everyone at ease, and video all aspects of your big day...and all of this done with a wicked sense of humour!"
Stuart it's been an absolute privilege not only to share both my daughter and my son's wedding with you, but also to get to know you. Thank you so much for everything x
Laura & David (June 2017) I first met Stuart at the ritz in Desborough back in 2016, from that day it was very clear Stuart knew his stuff. After speaking with Stuart at the ritz i didn't even look around at other videographers, i emailed Stuart to arrange a visit.
Stuart came out to our home shortly after and talked us through everything, there wasn't anything we needed to ask as Stuart had brought everything along to show us exactly what to expect, myself and my now husband was very impressed and paid a deposit there and then.
Leading up to our big day communication with Stuart was great, he would always reply promptly to emails answering any queries we had.
Our big day came around so quick, Stuart made everyone feel so relaxed and to be honest we forgot he was there to do a job as he just fitted in with all the wedding party. Nothing was too much trouble for Stuart even when he had to get all his equipment out of his car again to film my father daughter dance which wasn't on the original order of events (my fault).
Stuart delivered our dvds within the promised time frame and although there was a couple of things i discussed with Stuart that i would of liked differently, again nothing was too much trouble for Stuart, he went over the dvd and agreed, changed the small things and delivered updated dvds the same week free of charge.
i have to say i'm over the moon with our final dvd and it's something i will treasure forever. So again a massive thankyou to Stuart at SDS productions for capturing our amazing day on film and turning it into a magical dvd for us we cannot thank you enough.
Laura and David
Sydney & Craig (April 2017) We booked SDS DVD Production to film our wedding day and Stuart was amazing from Start to finish! Stuart spent the whole day with us ; from the bridal party getting ready and catching the boys having a cheeky pint all the way through our magical day to our first dance! He captured it all perfectly. We were teased with two trailers, one straight after and one whilst we were on our honeymoon. Once we came off our honeymoon Stuart brought the finished DVD straight round ( just 12 days after our wedding!!) . We have already relived our day through the DVD a few times and the emotion captured is beautiful, we are so glad we booked a little extra with the aerial drone cameras, the footage is awesome!! We would without a doubt recommend Stuart, he fully knows what he's doing book him today!
Michelle & Kaivon (March 2017) Absolutely delighted with the DVD that Stuart put together for our wedding. 90 mins of brilliant footage. Stuart is really professional and was an excellent combination with our photographer on the day. All the key moments captured, and presented excellently. Highly recommended Stuart to anyone.
Mother of Bride (Vicky & Matthew February 2017) Stuart! What would we have done without you at my daughter Vicki's wedding to Matthew yesterday?!!! You were amazing! Thank you so much for organising us with such patience and good humour, not to mention professionalism x And I just know the DVD will be incredible...I mean, just look at the trailer!!! It's beautiful! Very much looking forward to seeing you again in June at Daniel and Katie's wedding xxx
Hi Stuart x So I know I've already done a 5* review on your page, but I've just watched Vicki and Matthew's wedding video (through yet MORE happy tears! 🙄), and I really had to come back and say how beautiful it is. There's so much on there that we didn't see on the day, and it's lovely to be able to watch all the bits we missed. Having the groom miked up is such a good idea as it's so easy to hear their vows clearly. I'm no expert obviously but the way you've edited it and added the music etc is stunning and very thoughtful, and the still photos at the end are a real bonus. Ladies and gents, please don't miss the opportunity to book Stuart for your Big Day! He really is as good as we all say he is!
Brampton Grange Wedding venue
Relaxed and professional are just a few words we could use to describe Stuart. Relaxed as in there is no pressure at all to book him as your videographer (we don't like pushy types) but he will happily talk to you about what he can offer on the day. His videos are always beautifully edited and his turn around is pretty quick. If you want to remember you day and be able to show children and grandchildren what it was actually like then we'd definitely recommend talking to Stuart.
Hannah & Fraser (November 2016) Well well well I don't quite know where to start. We met Stuart by chance at a wedding fair and hadn't even considered having our wedding filmed! After seeing some clips we knew we had to have it filmed! Stuart was amazing from start to finish & so helpful! We had many a phone conversation and he made us all feel so relaxed on the day as it's not normal to have cameras pointing at you! We have just sat and finally watched the video from start to finish and completely relived our day! What a perfect day it was and we are so lucky to be able to watch it again and again! It is amazing Stuart thank you soo much! & on a personal note, although very professional you got involved and mingled with our guests and really joined in and celebrated with us! Thank you so much xxxx
Natalina & Anthony (November 2016) I don't think I can accurately describe just how magical an opportunity to have your wedding filmed In such a way feels! From watching it for the first time tonight I felt like it was my wedding day all over Again. You put so much time And effort into your big day, but it just passes in a blur of emotion. For any bride and groom looking for a videographer- just do it. It's worth its weight in gold and more. Thanks Stuart can't ever thank you enough for the opportunity x
Leah & Luke (Sept 2016) Well... where do I start! From the very first meeting to the end product - everything we wished for and wanted from a wedding DVD was all captured in the best quality and edited to the highest of standards so that our special day is remembered with grace and compassion! Stuart is simply the best! Professional and hard working guy who put everything in to capture every moment of our wedding day and then even the packaging to the DVD is beautiful. I cannot recommend SDS Productions enough! Worth every penny!! Thanks again for everything! To be brides - if you're reading this - book this guy up quick!! All the best x
Stephanie & Tom (August 2016) From the first meeting, nothing was too much for Stuart, he was on the end of the phone if needed and even made a home visit. The morning of the wedding was very relaxed and Stuart supported the relaxed atmosphere. Throughout the day we didn't once feel the cameras were 'in the way.' We were worried the footage would be too staged and be really aware of the cameras, however it wasn't anything like this, the complete opposite. We are both over the moon with the service Stuart has provided, the filming on the day, the wedding trailer and the video itself (lots of family members and friends are dead excited to see the video) So many people have commented on how beautiful the trailer is and what a great idea! Thank you for capturing our special day, it's so lovely to re-live it all. Love Mr & Mrs Lorraine Ps - thank you for also capturing the MoH fall over on the dancefloor... Absolutely hilarious!
Kayleigh & Steven (July 2016)
We booked Stuart well in advance for our big day on 2nd july 2016. He arrived early to capture us all getting ready and stayed until late to capture everything. I could not recommend him highly enough. Love our video and will cherish it forever cannot thank you enough Stuart
Kerry & Sean (June 2016)
Stuart filmed our wedding day and from start to finish he was brilliant. He arrived nice and early in the morning to capture myself and my bridesmaids getting ready then went to the church to capture my husband there and then onto our venue to film our reception. From the start when we booked Stuart he was professional and met with us to discuss want we wanted. He remained in contact with me which kept me at ease. We had every faith in Stuart from the word go that he would produce a magical DVD for us that we will cherish forever. The trailer to our wedding was posted a day later as promised and what a trailer it is. Our DVD has now been despatched, a very quick turn around less than 2 weeks. We are so excited to receive our DVD, we have arranged a family viewing to watch it. Thank you so much Stuart. Kerry and Sean. xx
Cheryl & Adam (June 2016) After planning my wedding in nine weeks we wanted to ensure we could get it recorded, a friend recommended SDS DVD productions and we are so glad we went with them ! They were amazing on the day capturing all the moments brilliantly and I have had nothing but compliments from our guests. Stuart was so quick at getting the DVD to us and the result is fantastic it makes me cry every time. We couldn't recommend Stuart more to any one worth every penny!! Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day so perfectly! Cheryl and Adam
Kym & Craig (May 2016)
When I first met Stuart at the Ritz wedding fayre I didn't think for a minute a videographer would be option for us as we were getting married in Santorini, Greece. However, after having the conversation, it was actually possible and we are so glad it was!
I would 100% recommend Stuart for abroad or UK weddings. His work is incredible and the turn around time for your dvd is so quick yet to such a high standard.
We couldn't wait to see it. Stuart worked hard from the off, arriving from 8am through to 12am capturing our perfect day. He also helped with the structure for parts of the day and getting us all organised.
The wedding day goes so fast and parts are a blur but having the dvd to watch back really is so special. It is also a great show for those who couldn't attend the day.
It is a magical keep sake that you can watch in years to come!!
Leanne & Kyle (April 2016)
We got married on 2nd April 2016. Stuart hand delivered our wedding DVD on Wednesday and we couldn't wait to watch it and show our family and friends.
From the moment we met Stuart at our consultation he was very professional and friendly.
On our wedding day Stuart turned up nice and early to get some great footage of me and my bridesmaids getting ready, Also capturing the rather emotional moment my dad saw me for the first time, right through to our evening reception with everyone celebrating with us.
Stuart and Richard captured so many amazing parts of our wedding, capturing bits that we had missed or forgotten. We would highly recommend Stuart to capture your amazing wedding days just like he did ours.
Stuart has told our wedding story perfectly on our DVD and we couldn't be more happy with how it turned out. It gets me every time we watch it, and we have watched it 3times already. Stuart is very passionate about his work which shows in his attention to detail on the wedding day and on the DVD. We can't thank Stuart and Richard for the wonderful DVD and pictures.
Kerry & Stuart (March 2016) We got married on 5th March 2016. Stuart delivered our DVD yesterday and we watched it with family yesterday evening. For once in my life I was absolutely speechless, it was so beautiful, he captured every aspect of our day, from the bits we didn't see to the bits that we had forgotten about. My husband said it was lovely to see the moment where my Dad saw me in the dress for the first time as he obviously hadn't seen that part, as it was for me to see my hubby and his boys at the church waiting for me. Also the special messages were lovely and yes, they made me cry! It truly was the happiest day of our lives and you can clearly see that in our film, it portrays exactly what we wanted for our day. Stuart was a pleasure to be around from the moment we met him at our consultation and on the day both Stuart and Richard were wonderfully professional without being pushy, I hardly realised the camera was there and they worked incredibly well with our photographer being careful to ensure he got the shots he wanted to. I cannot recommend them enough, they work so very hard through the day and afterwards which is clear to see when you watch the film. The attention to detail is incredible and Stuart really does listen to what you want, he takes everything in. Extremely approachable too, he was happy to speak to me at anytime and kept us up to date with progress afterwards. He has given us something we will treasure forever and for that we will always be truly thankful. Lots of love Kerry and Stuart Hall xx
Lucy & Paul (Feb 2016) We can't thank you enough for everything you did for us yesterday ❤ you organised the day brilliantly and completely put us at ease by just how calm and professional you were and the fact we built such a great relationship in a matter of 6-8 weeks was so reassuring when it came to the big day..❤😘#valentine wedding #firstweddingof2016"

Caroline & Patrick (August 2015) So now we're just drying our tears after watching our wedding video! Even Patrick had a tear or two! After seeing Stuart in action at my best friends wedding who I was bridesmaid for, I knew straight away I wanted him for our wedding! So professional, friendly, reliable and all of the little touches just make it complete. Watching the DVD back we felt like we were reliving our special day! Thank you so much to Stuart for doing such a wonderful job! Would definitely recommend to anyone for them to have a DVD of their special day by this man! Thank you once again!!! X ❤️

Leanne & Billy (August 2015) Stuart was absolutely brilliant to work with & I would highly recommend to anyone getting married and wanting that extra touch of magic! A true professional but also so much fun to the point he felt like one of the bridal party! Loved every second - we can't thank SDS DVD PRODUCTIONS enough! X
Amanda & James (July 2015)
Stuart, me and many watched the wedding video after you delivered to us, and was so pleased you made us look good, it was worth waiting for, we will be watching it many more times I'm sure, you definitely did us proud, we're so glad we bumped into you that day, one of our better decisions. The music fits perfectly and the photos at the end were also lovely. Thank you for everything you did on the day to help us, to be honest I didn't have a clue how to run things, but your input was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better person to capture our special day. Thank you once again and we will definitely recommend you if we get the opportunity. James and Mandy Alderman.
Victoria and Peter (July 2015) Thank you sooo much Stuart and Richard!! We have just watched our dvd and I was in tears (again!!) you caught all of those really special moments that we will be able to cherish forever. Thanks again, Mr and Mrs Wade xxx
Rebecca and Philip (July 2015) Hi Stuart, Wow, what a stunning and emotional film! You really captured the day perfectly and it was so good to see the parts that we were unable to see on the day and the private messages are quite simply a brilliant idea. We cant thank you enough for being part of our wedding and your skills and expertise really enhanced our special day. You have provided us a memory we can cherish forever, stunning job. We wont be hesitating to recommend you to our friends! Amazing addition to our wedding day! If your thinking about having someone come and film your special day, book stuart, trust me you won't be disappointed! Phil & Becky
Elloise & Ricki (July 2015) Just finished watching the dvd. We've both been in tears it was briliant. Thank you for capturing our special day perfectly. Elloise & Rick x
Rebecca & John (June 2015) The DVD’s are beautifully made. You have a passion for making wedding movies and a great ability to steer and direct wedding parties to do something fun to make a movie really special. After watching it, John and I really felt a sense of how we fell in love in the beginning.
Karen & Darren (May 2015) Superlatives cannot describe how awesome this team made our wedding day. From the rehearsal thru to the evening no stone was left unturned, Stuart is awesome with everybody...you pay for what you get...and for the professionalism shown...his service was priceless...myself and Karen cannot thank you enough
Kayleigh & Andy (March 2015) Absolutely amazing! Stuart was fantastic on the day of our wedding, really put a bride at ease! Absolutely fantastic dvd we love it! Thank you so much! We would always recommend you to all of our friends, you truly are awesome! Thank you for capturing our special day. Xx
Nichola Roberts (February 2015) I am a professional singer and I'm pleased to say I used SDS DVD PRODUCTIONS to film me for a promotional showreel to put on my website. Working with Stuart is a breeze as he is firstly a lovely guy, extremely talented, professional, and treats each of his projects with so much time and passion. He is in my eyes a perfectionist and he always achieves perfect results. An example of this is when he filmed my showreel he wanted to do a second filming for no extra charge just to get footage without the audience and a different lighting perspective. Stuat is a really nice person too but a constant professional and won't get in the way of the guests but manages to capture all of the best moments. If you choose him for any kind of video graphic work you will be extremely pleased with the finish product.
Jenna & Tink (September 2014) "Well, what can I say?? Even the most hardened stone soul would not have had a dry eye in our house last night!! The DVD was amazing!! So happy with it! Absolutely Faultless! It captured the theme and atmosphere of our special day perfectly and it was like reliving the day all over again. Thank you so so much Stuart and Richard. I'm looking forward to having it to share with the children as they get older. We were all a bit speechless after watching it. Just so fantastic. Thank you again from both of us. Jenna AbsolutelyHair Simpson and Think Simpson xxx"
Kayleigh and Darren (September 2014) I can't thank you enough for capturing such special memories of our wedding day...the day goes so quick and you don't realise all that is going on around you but with this fabulous DVD we can relive are wedding when ever we want....Stuart was so friendly and made everyone feel so comfortable with the camera around..not only did he produce a wonderful DVD but he made the whole day flow smoothly. I couldnt imagine not having this DVD .Definitely the best choice we made when planning our wedding. Thank you again for all that you have done for us xx
Vicky and Jack (July 2014) OMG fantastic!!!!!!!! What a wonderful company to have make your special day even more special!!! We had such a laugh from the start to the end of the day & didn't even notice the camera! The pre-view trailer was released the very next day which everyone was excited about & a week later our DVD arrived!!

Steven & Hayley (June 2013)
We have sat down and watched the DVD with our family and we couldn't be happier. Everyone loves the finished edit and it was amazing to be able to watch our day back and re-live it all again. Thank you so much SDS for providing us with such a perfect memento of our perfect day, it was money well spent and we would advise anyone planning their wedding to ensure they have a videographer called Stuart to capture their day.
Thank you to the team for being practically invisible on the day and for doing such an amazing job. The special messages on the end of the DVD were a fantastic touch and had us in stitches.
Mr & Mrs Ashworth
Rebecca & Nickolas (June 2013)
I can’t really put into words just how amazing the SDS DVD team really were, but I will try...
First of all just want to thank everyone involved, everything was perfect and every last detail was planned to the up most standard. At first when this company was booked for me as a wedding gift I was so worried thinking ‘oh no it’s more people to organise and sort out’. But in actual fact I don’t think I could have got married without them! Even before the big day Stuart was always at hand to answer any questions and give advice, he even attended our wedding rehearsal which was a big help.
On the day Stuart got stuck straight in capturing the morning and also was keeping me calm, helping with the couple of issues that arose and generally being a calm influence on us all. I think every wedding needs a Stuart!
The team are friendly, reliable and professional and go above and beyond. The final results of the DVD were extraordinary. The music selected made it extremely clear that Stuart had spent the time on our big day getting to know us & we couldn’t have chose it better ourselves. On our wedding day I didn’t cry, only the odd tear during speeches. But watching the DVD was completely different and I cried so much! It was just so amazing and I am so happy that we will never forget our special day. Thank you so much for everything!
Rebecca Kowalski & Nicholas Kowalski
Rebecca & Nickolas (June 2013) Mother of Bride
Hi Stuart & Team ,I've just watched the DVD s of Nick and Rebecca Kowalski s wedding and I would like you to know awesome is an understatement . Well done on such excellent work !! .Thank you from the mother of the bride .x
Aimee & Tom (May 2013)
Weddings are expensive and as the saying goes "you get what you pay for". At the end of the wedding day all you have left are memories and photos, so booking a videographer for your wedding is a brilliant idea. Over time relatives and friends sadly pass away and it's nice to have them immortalised in film. We spent a lot of time and effort planning the wedding (hand made invitations, table names, decorations, table plan etc) and SDS DVD PRODUCTIONS captures it all. The secret messages from guests is a nice touch and some of them are really funny. The day after the wedding we were feeling a little deflated because it was an amazing day and it went by in a flash. We highly recommend getting SDS DVD PRODUCTIONS to capture the wedding so you can re live the day time and again.
Aimee & Tom (May 2013)
Hello Stuart we watched all of the DVD last night even though we were very tired and jet lagged!!! It is FRICKING AWESOME. Made us laugh and cry!!! The music choices are really good. Love all the photos at the end of the DVD too even the ones where I'm pulling some strange faces!!!! Thank you for giving us an amazing memory of our wedding.
Aimee & Tom
Laura & Rawiri (February 2013)
Hey Everyone, Rooster here
My Wife, Laura Taiaki (I still really like the sound of that) & I just finished watching our Wedding DVD for the third time (Don't judge us), and I was that impressed by it that I wanted to write a review, shout out & plug for Stuart and the team AT SDS DVD PRODUCTIONS.
First off as you are all aware, we won our wedding, you all helped (thanks for that) but Stuart actually offered to film us as an added extra, separate from the main JACK fm prizes. ... From the outset he was professional and welcoming, and very easy to deal with... I felt in the loop and included, and most importantly comfortable. There was never a time where I was left feeling like I didn’t know what was going on, and that is important in the lead up to your wedding.
On the day he turned up to begin filming at 8am (most likely a 6.30am start for him) with no complaints and started capturing the moments that I wasn’t able to see of Laura getting ready, he then came to where the boys and I were and I was impressed with how easily he “Fit in”, what I mean is - never getting in the way but capturing all the important moments. On a day when everything is a blurr and you miss more than you know, Stuart was always there reassuring that he got that moment, or just to remind you how things will look when you watch it back, or for the 2 or 3 moments that he actually scripts that it will make sense in the long run, giving you that extra desire to see the DVD.
I am so glad that our day got filmed by Stuart, glad that it was him, with his eye and knowledge. I know that we will always have our memories, and a photo is worth a thousand words... but a SDS DVD PRODUCTIONS DVD tells the story of your day, in a way that no photo could ever compare...and that my friends is priceless!
Please once you have read this... If you are ever in a position where a friend or loved one or stranger (A friend you haven’t met yet) is thinking of a videographer – Share this with them, It really is the gift that will keep giving.
Stuart fitted in so well on the day Excellent work. I would highly recommend him.
Jane Watts, Mother of bride
“We booked Stuart from SDS DVD Productions for my daughter’s wedding in September 2012 and quite honestly it was the best thing we did. From the very beginning Stuart’s professional approach and friendly manner put us at ease and we knew he would do us proud. We had no idea though how amazing the finished product would be and we have been bowled over by the quality, the music, superb editing - just amazing - far exceeded our expectations!! Stuart and Richard were brilliant on the day. We didn’t have a professional photographer so they took charge and organised the photos etc. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone getting married and I cannot stress enough the quality of their work. Thank you so much to SDS DVD Productions, thanks to Stuart and Richard we have an incredible memory of my daughter’s special day that we can watch time and time again. Superb job!!.

Phil Williams Father of the bride (September 2012)
Stuart: What a day!!! From early morning until the midnight hour!
As father of the bride I am just full of admiration for your calmness and skill in not only dealing with a house full of highly charged females running around having their hair and make-up done, then dressing into their finery, you also helped me to keep a calm head while it appeared that my whole world was going in many different directions. (Coffee, Croissant’s and You worked wonders for me)
You and Richard continued in this calm skillful and professional manner throughout the whole day capturing every moment perfectly to the grand finale as Rob & Charlie’s evening came to a close.
Before watching the DVD I had no doubt that SDS DVD Productions would produce an excellent Wedding DVD for us and all that I can say is that it far exceeded myself and Maggie’s expectations.
Very Much appreciated
Phil (Father of the Bride)
Rob & Charlie (September 2012)

Hi Stuart. We have just finished watching our DVD. All I can say is wow! Absolutely love it! U captured everything. It was literally like being a guest at the wedding from our front room! Thank you so much! Love Charlotte and Seb x
Laura & Steve (August 2012)
Stuart, Richard (and Taylor). We have just watched our wedding DVD and are so thrilled with it. I've actually watched it twice already - once with Steve and then I took it straight round to my Mum's to watch again! I am so pleased we decided to have it filmed and that it was you who filmed it. You were so great on the day and have captured everything we would have wanted. Photos just couldn't capture things like the speeches and the singing waiters in the same way. We're literally able to relive the day whenever we want and relive it we did. I've cried and laughed in equal measures! Thank you so much for giving us the best wedding present EVER! Love Laura and Steve (The O'Gormans!) xXx

Dear Stuart We have now all watched the incredible Wedding DVD that you, your team, and company produced for us of my young Daughter’s Wedding day. (the Bride and Groom, LOVED it and will email you separately).
As I organised most things, I chose you VERY carefully. As at the end of the day, other than memories, all we will have left of the day IS the DVD and photographs produced. So I looked around and saw your previous work online, then you came to see us, way back in the early days to discuss our needs, I was immediately at ease in your company, and felt that you wrote down and understood everything perfectly, even avoiding pointing a camera directly at my Mum, which I knew she would not like, reducing dialogue, and that I may be “stressed” in the preparations on the day, you caught me in the dressing table mirror though, and that was in inspired touch.
On the big day itself, Richard and you were so unobtrusive, doing what you needed to do and being where you needed to be without me really noticing you were there, and believe me, that took SOME doing.
You are in incredibly talented pair, because the finished result, is breathtaking in its entirety. The Music complements the beautiful capturing of the preparations, the leaving and arrival at church, the ceremony (mum was particularly happy that you captured her voice only, so well done you!) and afterwards at the reception.
I watched it yesterday with my husband, and it bought a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye. It will be treasured for a very long time and watched many times throughout the years.
My Mum and Dad also watched their copy yesterday and felt you had done us all proud. As in many areas of Wedding Planning, we can only research and plan to a point then have to leave the day in the lap of the Gods, and let the experts do their jobs, you truly did yours well so GREAT JOB! Thank you so very much.
I hope this feedback may help someone else to decide to hire your talents and wish you all the best for the future.
My second daughter says she is NOT getting married..But WHEN she does, I will be coming straight back to you.
Laura & Lee
Thank you so much for all your hard work. The planning was certainly worth it. You guys made me and my bridesmaids feel so at ease. The whole day was just so relaxed. You said “ignore us and we will get the shots you want” I did not believe you and did not think it was possible, how wrong I was!, you were both so professional and yet had that very special personal touch. The slide show you put together for our guests to see blew us away. When we watched the dvd there were lots of tears, you caught every second of what we wanted, and more. It was great to see Lee in the pub with our friends before the service.
I did not realise how nervous I looked! still it was all worth it. We had the best day ever and thank you so very much for the best wedding dvd we could have asked for, I am sure we will watch it many many times, thanks again to you both for a fantastic job.

Dear Stuart, A BIG BIG thank you for the DVD of our Ruby Wedding celebrations. You completed the brief spot on,(A little difficult for you as we were not having any speeches etc)
You managed to capture the flavour of the day,the marquee,barbeque,drinks,people chatting and best of all lots of children playing,you certainly have a skill with editing (you should be on TV !!) and your music choices just fit perfectly , the section where a few children were playing with a rounders bat,and one by one men and children appeared and gathered .
All accompanied by the music from Chariots of Fire INSPIRED!!!! and a great game of rounders/rugby was had by all. How you manage to be everywhere,and the fact that everyone is unaware they are being filmed is a mystery to me ...................
Also please tell me how you managed to get 20 children including toddlers and my never sit still 6yr old grandsons to all sit together and wave at the camera for pics love it.
