We've got Team Spirit!

Monday, September 27, 2010

The community photography project "Team Spirit" is underway and has got a real buzz of excitement about it from participants in the Westbury area.

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.

Bookings, leaflets and latest news!

We've had a busy but fantastic Summer filming and photographing weddings across Wiltshire, Bath and Somerset and met some lovely people along the way!

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

After 10 years of music video, documentary and film production, this year Jamie branched out and started producing wedding videos, while Jackie has broadened her photography portfolio and now shoots beautiful wedding photos - and we both absolutely love it!

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.
Best wishes,
Jamie and Jackie

We need YOUR help!

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Thanks to our followers on Facebook we have been able to improve the Wiltshire Wedding Video website - some viewers of the website were having problems watching the videos due to the speed of their connection... so now the videos have a full control panel (pause, stop, fast forward, rewind and adjust volume) to give you more control and stop the video from buffering and keep stop/starting on it's own.

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.
