Wedding Video Review from Tess

One of my all-time favorite ‘quick-reviews’ from a bride moments after she just watched her wedding film. Tess happens to be the daughter of one of my film director heroes since I was a kid, Jim Sheridan.  (Screenshot used with permission

Wedding Video Review by Nicola Russell

I’ve seen wedding videographers at previous weddings and usually it’s a friend of the family who fancies themselves as the next Scorsese or that uncle who once used his go-pro to capture that holiday in Spain. Always the afterthought when all focus is spent on the photographer. But one wedding changed that.

I recall a friend’s wedding video that captured all those intimate and special moments and good as the result was, its true value was revealed when less than a year later the bride’s father suddenly passed away. The memory of not just that day but also of her father was preserved in every detail. Not just an image in a book or frame but through video. The magic of that father daughter dance and every smile and laugh that defined him was preserved. I decided there and then that any wedding of my own would preserve everything that was special on the most special of days. To capture the life and the lives that shared it. You never know what the future holds but to my friend her wedding video is among the most precious things and her precious daughter born after the passing of her grandfather will some day know her granddad from the video that captured him walking his own daughter down the aisle and took her hand to dance.

We decided early on in our wedding planning that our focus and budget was better spent on video and not on posed photographs. Everyone present had a phone or camera but none of them had the talent or eye that Richard could bring to the day. When we stumbled upon Richards website and looked at previous weddings we were absolutely blown away. We figured he was a videographer well beyond our reach and budget such was the polish and professionalism demonstrated. In fact, heavy hearted, we had actually booked a cheaper guy, but once Richard got in touch we didn’t hesitate in changing. Sure, he cost more but his end product blew everyone else out of the water. It’s not a video- it’s a cinematic masterpiece! His shots and edits, his choice of tracks, his use of drone footage, his unobtrusive and professional manner. Nothing in his package slipped below expectation. It merely surpasses.

Our wedding was small due to venue but having a video that we could send worldwide meant everyone got to share our special day – there were as many tears of joy shed watching tv screens, phones, and laptops around the world as there were among those who witnessed it and we only have Richard to thank. Memories will always dull and grow dusty but our video will instantly clear those cobwebs and not just re-tell but relive a very, very special day and all who shared it. Its value to us, our family, our friends and to our future kids, god willing, will always be priceless and our gratitude to Richard accordingly. We couldn’t recommend him any more highly. Don’t even bother looking elsewhere- you will not regret it! Once again, our sincerest thanks, Mr. & Mrs. John and Danielle O’Loughlin

John and Danielle O’Loughlin

Well Richard. I honestly don’t know what to say. I am massively speechless. To say myself and Paddy are blown away is a massive understatement to your incredible talent and doesn’t even come close to doing you justice. Im not sure what words I can use that would do it justice, but ill give it a shot.

The way you captured the day is breath taking. The quality of the video makes me feel like I am right back in Carton house with all my friends and family celebrating and doing it all over again. I know you said that in years to come, the real value of the video will be realised, but I have to say, I feel the true value of it even 2 months after the event. Watching it, we cried, we laughed, and we went through the full motions. This video to me is now priceless.

To comment on the editing skills, I have to say I was a little nervous that some of my (drunken) ticks would embarrass me but you have edited in such a way, that I am not only happy with the way we both look, I am very proud of the way we both look. Myself and Paddy are quite animated characters anyway and I feel you totally captured the essence of us, and our true spirt.

To comment on the music you have added in the background, I couldn’t have picked better in my wildest dreams! The music will forever remind me of our day. Given we couldn’t have live music for the day itself, this means even more to me now.

My favourite moments that you captured are as follows:

The look of nervousness on Paddy’s face before the ceremony
My mother’s elegance
Paddy’s Fathers pride
Our first dance with me singing along to the music
Our happiness

As an overall, Richard you were just so amazing to have at the wedding. I honestly feel like myself and Paddy shared this day with you and Kevin but at the same time, you blended into the background so well, that once the general friends and family photos were done, we had forgotten you guys were there!!

We couldn’t be more grateful to you for what you have done for us. This video is something we will both cherish for the rest of our lives and we have you to thank for that amazing gift.

I will be adding reviews online later today too!
Wait until you see how things were done in the 80s. Mam and dads video coming your way this week too:)
Once again, thank you Richard from the bottom of our hearts.

Hayley & Paddy.

Hayley & Paddy

Richard is just fantastic!!!! We got our wedding videos from our wedding in august and the quality is just something out of this world! I can’t even begin to describe how special the video is to me. Richard captured the day so perfectly. He is an absolute gentlemen to work with and we are blessed to have shared our day with him. He is a genius at what he does. If you want the best of the best, then he is your man.

Review taken from Google Reviews

I recently had the pleasure of working with Richard Finlay from Bride and Groom Films for our wedding at Markree Castle in Sligo, Ireland on October 4, 2023.

As a professional film editor myself, I had (ridiculously) high expectations! I did a TON of research into looking for the perfect person for the job, going as far as making spreadsheets of every videographer within a drivable distance and viewing all of their sample videos and websites.

I was a bit nervous to entrust someone I had never met in person (we are from the USA) with something as important as my wedding video, but I can confidently say that Richard exceeded my expectations in every way and we are absolutely thrilled with how our videos turned out. One of the aspects that immediately caught my attention was the range and comprehensiveness of the packages Richard offered.

It was evident that he understands the unique needs of each couple, providing options that cater to various preferences and budgets. This flexibility made the entire process seamless and stress-free. We chose his "Quentin Tarantino" package as I wanted to get all the raw files etc in case I wanted to tinker with the edit, however it seems that this was unnecessary as his editing was absolutely beautiful!

Being in the field of editing, I am acutely aware of the balance required to capture genuine, candid moments without intruding on the beauty of the occasion. Richard mastered this art effortlessly. His ability to blend into the background while still capturing the essence of our special day was truly commendable. The result was a collection of stunning, natural shots that beautifully documented the emotions and joy of the day.

Richard's professionalism and patience throughout the entire process were noteworthy. He was attentive to our vision, receptive to our ideas, and his calm demeanor added a sense of ease to the entire wedding day. His dedication to ensuring every detail was captured with precision was truly impressive. Even after the wedding day, Richard continued to impress. The post-production process was seamless, and the final videos surpassed our expectations. His editing skills brought our memories to life, creating a cinematic masterpiece that we will cherish for a lifetime. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Richard Finlay from Bride and Groom Films for anyone seeking a wedding videographer. His professionalism, artistic talent, and genuine passion for his craft set him apart. Thank you, Richard, for capturing the magic of our special day so beautifully.

Richard was the videographer for our wedding in July. He was brilliant to work with, and the video was beautiful. I would definitely recommend Bride & Groom Films.

Richard's approach as our wedding videographer was simply amazing! He seamlessly blended into the day, capturing moments without feeling intrusive. The final wedding video he created is beyond words - it's unreal! His talent for storytelling and editing turned our special day into a cinematic masterpiece. His music choice is amazing, perfectly complementing the emotions of each moment. The attention to detail showcased his dedication to his craft. We couldn't be happier with the result. Richard not only documented our wedding; he preserved the emotions and memories we'll treasure forever. If you want an extraordinary wedding video, Richard is the videographer to choose.

Richard was fabulous not only on the wedding day itself but also throughout the build up. The vidoes he created are better than we could have hoped for, so professional and captured the day perfectly, we can't stop watching them! Thank you Richard.

Richard is the best of the best. We are so grateful to him for our amazing wedding video package. All of our family and friends are blown away by it too. On the wedding day he was brilliant, he blended in seamlessly but captured every moment perfectly. The videos have far exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful to him for his outstanding work. From the first phone call to the end result, his professionalism and attention to detail is outstanding. We will treasure the videos forever!

Richard did an absolutely amazing job filming our wedding day at Dromoland Castle and comes with our highest recommendation. Richard was exceptional to deal with from the time of booking up until receiving our wedding video. We selected "The Scorsese" package which included the Signature Film (c.15mins) and Feature Film (c.60mins) and both captured our wedding day perfectly.

Richard also included breathtaking aerial footage of the castle and the stunning grounds including the walled garden where we had our outdoor wedding ceremony and drinks reception.

We appreciated Richards discreet, unobtrusive, fly-on-the-wall filming style so much! Richard was overall relaxed and seamlessly blended into our wedding day while filming a true work of art. Richard’s cinematic approach to videography and the visual and audio quality of his work provide a true cinematic film.

We are so delighted we have these stunning wedding films to look back on the best day of our lives for years to come and to share with our family and friends and the future generations of our family. Richard also worked so well with our wonderful photographer (Shane O Neill) from Aspect Photography, they were a great duo on the day, driving us around the castle grounds in the golf buggy to allow us to enjoy some private moments that he perfectly captured in between the celebration with our wedding guests.

We hired Richard for our wedding as we were impressed by his video catalogue on his website. From first contact, to the delivery of the videos, Richard was professional and kept us at ease. His final video for us was amazing and we would recommend him for anyone wanting a professional video.

We wanted to thank Richard from Bride & Groom so much for attending our wedding in Lough Eske Castle, Donegal on the 22nd December 2022. From when we reached out initially, his professionalism shone through. He was prompt, polite and clear in his communication. All of this really helped us as we planned our wedding from Australia. When we were looking for a videographer we knew that we wanted someone who would capture the full story of the day but at the same time blend into the wedding day background to capture everyone in a natural setting. From the early morning Richard did exactly that, we didn't need much interaction throughout the day as the briefing call we had the week of the wedding set the days expectations perfectly. Everything ran extremely smooth and Richard captured everything that we asked for and more. He also worked seamlessly with our photographer Paul McGinty (Ghorm Photography) on the day and he was extremely patient throughout. Richard delivered amazing cinematic wedding films that were better than we ever anticipated. The editing, video quality and soundtracks were beautiful matched with the emotion and joy of the day. We were impressed at how quickly Richard sent us the teaser film and the final set of films as our wedding was over the Christmas break and we weren't expecting them for another few months. Our friends and family are blown away at the quality of Richard's work and we are extremely fortunate to have what he created for us to rewatch and share for years to come. If you want a professional, courteous, cinematic, storytelling, fly on the wall videographer then look no further and contact Richard. The information provided on the website (detail is excellent) is exactly what you get when you book Richard. We couldn’t recommend Richard any more highly to anyone. Go raibh míle maith agat!

Richard was exceptional to deal with from the time of booking up until receiving our wedding video. He really captured the feeling of the whole day and we were absolutely blown away by Richard's video - it was exactly what we were hoping for and more! Can't wait to re-watch it for years to come!

I came across Richard when starting our search for wedding videographer and I can honestly say I am thrilled that I did! After seeing his previous work it easily made my mind up, however to say we were blown away when we got our wedding video is an understatement! Richard made our day look like a movie, and everytime I watch each video I love it even more! Second to this, I remember seeing Richard twice on the day itself, once in the morning to say hello and then again that night saying goodbye. I can't underestimate the importance of this as a bride, as on the day itself it is very busy and overwhelming and you are being pulled in lots of different directions by lots of different people, so to have your videographer be able to capture every moment (one's you see and ones you don't!) Without ever making themselves known or adding pressure to you on the day is priceless. We are both very grateful for Richard for creating such a special video and memory for us for the rest of our lives. We would highly recommend him to any future bride and groom! Thanks again Richard, Laura and David

Richard shot our wedding at City Hall and Powerscourt House June 2022 and was an incredible pleasure to work with. He had a fine art, cinematic approach to videography that we loved from our first call with him and he was really excited by our concepts and songs and knew how important it would be to capture them. He didn’t try oversell us at all and we opted to upgrade and even get custom cuts. He worked so well with our wonderful photographer Michelle Prunty (photo by her) and was overall just really relaxed and ready for the big day! He also collaborated a bit with my brother who is a videographer (who recommended we hire him based on his work!) and folded in some of his drone shots of Dublin into the videos. Couldn’t recommend him more highly, so worth the investment and the videos take my breath away every time I watch them!

It has been more than 4 years since we discovered Richard and his work. I remember sitting down with my fiancée when we were looking for our wedding videographer and knowing he was the man for the job. During that time, we had two postponements and on both occasions Richard was so approachable and understanding. We finally had our day in August '22 and on the day, Richard was a joy to work with. He made everyone feel so at ease while he was doing his thing. There were many comments from our family and friends that you could hardly notice he was there. He was so clear with his directions and easy going with his approach and had a great dynamic with our photographer on the day. We recently received our footage from Richard and what he created for us was beyond what we expected, it is simply stunning. The moments and shots that he captured of both my wife and I and our guests are beautiful, and the end production is simply outstanding. We are beyond happy with what Richard has put together for us, and we feel extremely fortunate to have had him as our videographer on our big day. To boot, he is also a total gentleman and a complete pro. It speaks volumes that one of my best friends booked Richard after I showed her his work, and that Richard had shot my wife's sister's wedding a few years previous, which we were unaware of when we booked him ourselves. Thanks Richard for all of your hard work. We could not recommend him enough.

Highly recommend Richard as a wedding videographer! Throughout the long-distance planning of our wedding, Richard was easy to communicate with and provided great information leading up to the wedding day. On the day, he blended in seamlessly with our guests and our photographer, which allowed his videos to be authentic and genuine. We received our video just prior to Christmas, allowing us to share it with our family in person! We are so glad to have chosen Richard to be our videographer and will cherish his videos for years to come! Thank you, Richard!

Richard has an incredible eye for capturing authentic moments and calibrating them into a special viewing experience. Richard gave us the gift of experiencing our wedding from a whole new perspective. Deciding to ask Richard to be our videographer was the best decision we made for our wedding, besides choosing to marry each other of course!

Deana & James

Dromoland Castle

Having researched Richard's work at length we were absolutely confident that he would deliver a beautiful wedding film but we were blown away when we received the final edited version. His personal touches and flawless editing really captured the day for us. Richard adapts a fly on the wall approach which is absolutely true of his work as we barely noticed him/ his equipment through the day yet the moments he captured were amazing. Richard clearly has a passion for his work and is a nice fella to boot.... We could not recommend Bride & Groom Films more highly!

I got in touch with Richard following a recommendation from my photographer, and I am gald I did. He was a pleasure to work with. He was very good to communicate with during the planning stages of the wedding, he responded quickly to any comments I had, which I found very reassuring. He was very professional throughout the day, arrived at the house that morning ready to go full of positivity. He was able to work away to get the shots he needed and stood back to capture all the activity of getting ready that morning. Himself and the photographer know each other and got on very well. They made both myself and the groom laugh and smile a lot during the day which was great for photos/footage. The families on both sides commented on how great he was and how lovely he was to deal with during the day. Richard had a great number of packages to choose from and included drone footage which is very nice to have on the wedding day. There are options to suit everyone. We picked a short highlight film and the 1 hour film. We are thrilled with how they turned out. He got some fantastic shots and didn't make us feel too awkward in front of the camera. Even the morning after the wedding, we both said we were looking forward to seeing the footage, as the day had passed by so quickly. It is so great to be able to relive the day. If you are considering getting a videographer for your wedding, I would highly recommend Richard. I cannot praise him enough for everything he did for us on the day and the footage we now have which will be cherished for years to come. Shelly and Dave, Jun2022.

Shelly & Dave, Fota Island

Richard is the best wedding videographer you'll find in Ireland! Look no further. Myself and my partner could not be any happier with the videos and family and friends are mindblown with how good it turned out. We are so so happy we went with Richard, his work is of the highest quality, he makes you feel super comfortable and you really don't notice him as he's capturing footage througout the day. Can't recommend him enough.

Bryan & Louise

We received our wedding videos from Richard on Christmas Eve and we were blown away by them! Richard's shot selection is phenomenal and his editing skills are excellent. It was a perfectly finished product when we received each of the videos. We've watched them numerous times with our family and friends and they all love them. His natural approach to capturing the day is really the only way to go. He's not intrusive, but still comes away with the best footage. Richard was a pleasure and absolute gent to work with on the day. He worked well with our photographer too to capture the day perfectly. We would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for the best possible wedding video. Sound Richard!

Ciara & Cillian, Liss Ard Estate

Richard is absolutely amazing. We recommend him 100% to anyone getting married that wants a real movie of their big day. We get to relive the memories as often as we want! If you are unsure if you need a photographer and a videographer? You do! It is the real treasure you get to keep afterwards!! Richard is the best in the industry. He really creates wedding movie magic. We were so lucky he was available for ours. The whole process was so easy. From the initial video call to have a chat, to queries before the big day. Richard is responsive and very knowledgeable. He made us feel so at ease. On our wedding day, Richard was there early before all my bridesmaids arrived! He is friendly and a calm presence. He made me us feel so relaxed and worked in sync together with our photographer, they had some great ideas. During the day he captured everything but was discreet so all the guests felt comfortable. The result speak for themselves. Our movie is incredible, the quality of the image is stunning. We are so happy with ours. Thank you so much Richard!! Love Gill & Wayne xxx

Gillian & Wayne, Tulfarris Hotel

We just received our wedding video from Richard and we absolutely love it! We’ve watched it so many times with family and friends and everyone comments on how Richard captured emotion, happiness and fun from the day and put it all together as a story. Asking Richard to record our wedding was one of the best decisions we’ve made. We searched through numerous different videographers and cinematographers and Richards work stood out from the rest. His work is just phenomenal and he is so easy to deal with. He is a delight to have with you throughout the day, he is professional and unobtrusive. Richard offers so much in his packages and we love having the ten minute Signature film to send to our guests. We can’t put into words how well put together our wedding video is. The sound and music is crystal clear from the day and everyone just looked so well. We highly recommend Richard, his turnover time is so fast compared to others, you won’t be disappointed!

Amy & Jonney

We received our wedding video from Richard and we couldn’t be happier. I cry every time I watch it, he captured the intimacy and emotion of the day. Even though it was a small wedding I didn’t even notice Richard there, he just faded into the background but didn’t miss anything. From the first conversation I had with Richard, he was so professional and listened to what we wanted and he definitely delivered. Would highly recommend!!! Can’t wait to show our video to all our family and friends.

Richard was so professional and easy going and we felt so comfortable with him. We weren’t sure whether to get a videographer for such a small wedding (26 people) but we are so glad we did. Richard captured the intimacy and emotion of the day and didn’t miss anything. We didn’t even notice him there even with small numbers. We couldn’t be happier with our film and can’t wait to show everyone. Thanks so much Richard

Natasha & Daniel

Hi Richard,

Thank you so so much 😊 We absolutely love both of them!! The short highlights is just perfect! Can't wait to send it on to people, it's great to have the bit of the celebrant saying 'hello' to Adam & Faye at the start, they'll be thrilled with themselves!

Many thanks again for being there on the day in the strangest of covid times, for capturing the memories of the day and enabling us to share the ceremony with those who couldn't be there due to the restrictions,

Best wishes,
Claire & Eoghan

Claire & Eoghan

Richard is simply the best there is. Lorcan and I are absolutely thrilled with the amazing job Richard did shooting our wedding. We only had immediate family at our wedding due to COVID and we only decided very last minute to get a videographer - we are so glad that we made that decision. Not only is the footage out of this world, Richard was so inconspicuous on the day and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We couldn't recommend Bride & Groom Films highly enough. Thanks again Richard - we will treasure the footage forever. Niamh and Lorcan

Niamh and Lorcan

Richard was an amazing videographer. The short we received we sent onto so many friends and everyone cried and loved it. You never notice Richard there on your day. He's professional and so friendly and the way your day is captured is amazing.

Miriam & Neil

We were absolutely delighted with our wedding video. Richard is very genuine and professional, and we barely even noticed he was there on the day (despite there only being small numbers!). He produced a perfect short video to share with friends and a brilliant long video that captured every aspect of our day. Richard also worked very well with our photographer on the day and they were both very easy going, which was what we were looking for. Even before the wedding Richard was brilliant to deal with, even when we had to postpone our original date, he responded to all our queries quickly and put our minds at ease. Richard clearly cares about his work and we cannot recommend him highly enough for anyone looking for a quality videographer for their wedding. You will be in good hands! Thanks a million Richard!! Trevor and Joanne

Trevor & Joanne

We just received our films from Richard and they are brilliant! He produced a short and long film that perfectly captured our day. The quality of the film is amazing. Its so professional but natural all at once. We were torn about getting a video at all due to small numbers (and camera shy) but am so glad we did now! Small or large wedding, get Richard! He captured the fun of our small crowd and you hardly knew he was there. Richard and our photographer worked very well together and we noticed how respectful they were to each other. Organising and planning with Richard is very easy and he is so obliging with requests. Thanks Richard for capturing the essence of our day!

Celine & Gerry

Hi Richard, We have just watched our wedding video and we cried, laughed and said 'Awwwww' throughout it. So unbelievably glad we chose you. You are beyond talented. Your attention to detail, thought, time and care you have put into editing this is incredible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. This is an amazing product anytime, anywhere. We are ever mindful of your situation. Thank your for your strength and courage to keep going and to achieve such selfless and professional results with warmth and heart behind them. Warmest wishes and endless thanks and love, Aimee and Tom x

Aimee & Tom

Richard!! They are amazing. I was crying my eyes out haha. Thank you so much for making them so special. Can’t thank you enough

Laura Fitzpatrick

I would highly recommend bride & Groom films. Richard did a wedding I attended where I was part of the bridal party and without a doubt I wanted him for my wedding. He was very professional but also very friendly and just blended into the background putting you at ease. This is a late review but I had a query lately about my wedding video and 3 and a half years later Richard still was willing to help.

Niamh Greaves

Richard did an amazing job of capturing our wedding day. Having a videographer was one of the last, yet, one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We chose Richard because of his endless excellent reviews and he did not disappoint! He was so discreet and yet he captured everything without ever being imposing - which was exactly what we were looking for. The quality of the footage and the editing is outstanding, we are delighted with our videos. He is a pro at what he does and I wouldn't hesitate to reccommend him to any future couples. Thanks again for a great job Richard 🙂

Caitriona & Sean

Fabulous experience start to finish and couldn’t be happier with the end product. My husband and I both dislike being filmed but it was like Richard wasn’t even there! We’re so happy we got a videographer to cover the day as can’t recommend Richard enough.

Amanda Kaye

Richard recorded our wedding in December of 2018 and we could not have been happier with the end result. He done everything we asked and the end result was even better than we had hoped. Absolutely worth every penny. From the scenic shots on the cliffs of Mullaghmore to documenting our guests enjoyment and capturing them deep in conversation and lost in the moment, it summed up the day perfectly.

The video is all so natural and flowing, nothing feels forced or staged and with a brilliant choice of music throughout. Family members have all commented on the quality of the video and have been recommending Richard to everyone.

Thanks again Richard!

Clare Rooney

We could not have had a better experience working with Richard. He was communicative leading up to the wedding, he was excellent to work with the day of the wedding, and the final product video came out absolutely amazing. Overall, we would recommend Richard to anyone and everyone having a wedding in Dublin. We could not be happier.

Patrick Kelly

We made a last minute decision to have a videographer at our wedding and reached out to Bride & Groom films and could not be happier that we did.

Richard replied quickly and we hit the ground running. From our first phone call I was put at ease that he knew what he was doing and was very easily able to adapt to what we wanted in our wedding.

On the day Richard worked great with both of us and out wedding photographer and blended seamlessly into the crowd while shooting his footage and was really approachable to chat to throughout the day.

The final product was amazing, both our short film and feature film had superb editing and soundtrack and the amount of comments we had about how good our short film was (and how it was like a movie trailer) was amazing. We could not recommend Bride & Groom enough if your considering a videographer for your wedding. If any doubt get in touch and after one phone call with Richard your mind will be put to rest!

Adam Hanlon

Richard was absolutely incredible to work with! My post is very delayed, my apologies, but we were married in June 2017 at Cabra Castle. Richard and I were able to Skype before hand and work out the details (as I am from New York). This gave me so much comfort and ease, to know who I was working with, although we couldn’t meet in person until the big day! Richard worked so seamlessly and efficiently, we barely even noticed that the day was filmed! The result of our video was perfection. My husband Dominick and I could not be any happier with the final result. Many of our loved ones couldn’t make the wedding either because of travel, illness, etc. but by having this video made we were able to relive the experience with loved ones! Thank you Richard again, for memories that will last a lifetime!

Molly Owens

Richard was a dream to work with. Our videos are amazing. When we sat down and watched it was like being back in the moment. I particularly love the moments captured before the ceremony. It means so much to us to have captured so many of the special moments not only between ourselves but between our friends and families. We will treasure these forever.

Helen Carroll

The content Richard produced for our wedding video was excellent! Richard was a pleasure to deal with throughout the wedding day and we would highly recommend him to any couple. Thanks again!

Neil Cantwell

Richard videoed our wedding last year and was fantastic! Great guy and great video! Would highly recommend if you want someone who cares about the content they create

Aaron Devine

Richard is a stand out professional in his field. We spent a few weeks watching wedding videos on different sites and when we came to B&G Films we went no further. It was the best decision we ever made. There is three different packages and you choose whatever suits your budget. On the night we asked could he stay longer and he did which was so flexible of him and we really appreciated it because it wasn’t planned. As for the short and feature film we received this week.......incredible, worth every penny. If I could give this company more than 5 stars I would.

Paul & Jessica

Look no further than Richard for your wedding day. He is such a professional and exceptional in his field of work. We could never have imagined how beautiful our wedding day films turned out. He has a great personality and managed to pick up all of the special moments and blended into the background. We couldn't have asked for anymore. 100%.

Deirdre McMahon

Richard was brilliant from start to finish. He has a lovely easygoing warm personality and put us at ease. He worked away in the background on the day and we were absolutely delighted with the quality of his work and all the little important moments he captured that we will always be able to fondly look back on. We were unsure about getting a videographer before the wedding as we had already paid for a photographer. Looking back now, it was the probably the best money we spent. We will always have those special moments. We absolutely love the films (short and long).

Arnie & Serena

We are so glad we decided to get a videographer. We were even more glad that we chose Richard from Bride and Groom films.
He documented every part of our day, we barely noticed he was there too. He was like a ninja! We both loved our teaser trailer watching it countless times. We waited with bated breath for more to arrive. Sure enough the day came when we got to see the rest of our wedding day, believe it or not your wedding day does become a faded memory very fast, so having the amazing work Richard put into wedding video was such a treat to watch and reminisce over our wedding day events.
You can tell immediately that each video was crafted with care and respect.
We cannot recommend him enough. The production quality and editing that went into each unique video was truly something we will treasure forever. - Angela & Joseph Coffey

Richard filmed our wedding in Wicklow at Brooklodge......he was brilliantly surreptitious throughout so we were completely natural in the film as we didn't even realise he was filming for much of the time!!
We are really chuffed with the resulting short and long films; they are such lovely records to look back on and will be treasured for years to come......
Richard's eye for detail and the time he took was second to none. Thank you Richard, for all your hard work and professionalism! Kay and Paul

If you are searching for your wedding videographer, look no further. The footage Richard shot for our wedding in August is so professional. He listened to our requests and shot a beautifully natural and candid film for us. I can honestly say that I did not even notice Richard on the day; he blended in like one of the guests, all the time ensuring he captured every treasured moment of the day. It is pretty hard to believe there was only one of him when watching the film but I did see him literally running on the day which I guess explains it. We also owe Richard an extra special thank you as we had a tsunami of a day in Kilkenny, the day of our wedding but Richard accommodated our requests, with no complaints, to still have footage outside, at the castle - him and his equipment got absolutely soaked but the footage we got up there is fabulous so thank you so much. He even managed to get the drone up in the cyclone-like weather and we hadn't even realised this until we saw our video. Do not waste any time in securing Richard for your wedding as I am sure he gets booked up quickly!

Kate Barrett

Richard did an absolutely fantastic job filming our wedding day and creating a beautiful video that we will cherish for many years. He was able to capture such special moments in a really organic fashion, without being overly in the faces of our wedding guests. It was so great to view the footage afterwards, and see the many candid reactions of our friends and family. We are so glad we decided to hire a videographer for our wedding day and could not be happier that we chose Richard.

Elizabeth Dean

Richard was an absolute pleasure to deal with start to finish. He customized a package to suit exactly what we wanted and then over delivered on our expectations. He is outgoing and friendly whilst still making sure not to be intrusive on guests and he was particularly excellent working in tandem with our photographer which helps to keep stress to a minimum during the day itself. He has a terrific eye for detail and is every bit as good at editing the final video as he is at shooting the footage so you will end up with an amazing video capturing your special day forever. Book him today!!

Alan Gilligan

Richard was amazing to deal with on the day, he worked the room and captured amazing footage. The videos we received are stunning. The short film edit is amazing to have, We are so glad we have that the feature length as it would be hard to choose a favourite. He captured the day perfectly. We can’t wait to show family and friends. Ruth & Craig.

Ruth Lyons

Richard's film that he created for us was breathtaking. It perfectly captured our relationship. I had tons of wedding guests say that it was on the best wedding films they've ever seen.

On top of that, he was very flexible with our budget and worked with us in short notice before our big day. His work is something I'll forever cherish!

Lauren O'Driscoll

Richard did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding video! The drone footage and sound quality was superb. The video is more like a movie than a run of the mill wedding video. Our friends and family love watching it and it never gets old! We will cherish this video forever! Thank you Richard for being so easy to work with and prompt with communication!

Natalie Paramore

Richard is a professional and very easy to work with, he worked on our wedding day and did a smashing job. Our hotel asked to use some of his footage for their website to promote weddings as he did such a great job capturing the venue in all its glory. I would happily recommend Richard for your wedding or other events.

Eva Harrington

We're absolutely amazed at the quality of the video. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to film our special day for us. I've seen the videos a 100 times probably and we're so impressed. Our friends and family who've seen it are so impressed.

Richard was exceptional on the day and thank you so much for capturing everything. We will cherish this always.

Pooja & Richard

Richard is an absolute gentleman, from the moment we booked with bride and groom films he was so helpful and always available for any queries. On the day itself, he blended in so well and put ourselves, our families and guests at total ease and he was so discreet that i didnt even see him filming yet he captured every special moment of our wedding and didnt miss a thing. We adore our video and have watched it over and over, it captures the magic of the day and brings us back everytime to how amazing and special our wedding day was. We love it and i cannot thank Richard enough for everything he has done to help us through the whole process. He is a true professional, and on top of that he is friendly and helpful and very skilled at what he does. Many family members and guests said to me how lovely richard is and we could not agree more. You could not ask for a better person to capture your wedding day and thanks to Richard we have memories from our wedding day that will last a lifetime
Thank you Richard so much

Sinead & Martin

Can't recommend Richard enough. Our wedding video is amazing. Thank you so so so much! We couldnt be happier! If anyone is looking for a videographer and is confused on who to choose well look no further then Richard. The best you can get and you wont be dissapointed!
Thanks so much for everything. 😊😊

Trina & Patrick

Thanks to Richard of Bride & Groom films for a fantastic account of our day, he really captured the moments and the final edit was a true reflection of the high standard he works to. This was echoed by everyone we shared our wedding film with. We could not recommend him enough.

Eimear Killeen

Hey Richard, Mark & Louise here. Just sending a text of much appreciation to you for doing such a fantastic job on our wedding video. I watched it the minute you sent it but Louise took until tonight to watch it (nerves) 😜
You did such an amazing job and the music is class. We are on our third viewing now and the vino is flowing.
Thanks for being so patient with us, I know the evening ran away a small bit, it was so much to take in and co ordinate.
The movie brought back so much memories of the day, it’s so great to see it in perspective, the joy on everyone’s face and the way you slowed it down and captured those special memories for the rest of our lives. 😌❤️❤️😍
We will cherish this for ever and will show it for everyone to see.
Thank you so much Richard and I hope we were co operative with you throughout the day 🙄😋
We will be highly recommending your profession to our friends who are all on the list to take the plunge!
Happy new year and best wishes in the future.
Forever great full
Mr & Mrs Dillon 🥰 x

Mark & Louise Dillon

Our videos are beautifully shot and amazingly well edited. Richard is a complete professional, and the best compliment we can give is that we harldy even noticed him the whole day, he blended in so well and worked very discretely. We have seen so many things that we would have missed otherwise. I’m justified now in my decision as we weren’t going to have a videographer at all. As I read somewhere else i feel it’s actually the best value for money we spent on the wedding. You really do get what you pay for. We would highly recommend Bride and Groom Films.

Lisa & Seamus

Sinead Kenefick

Richard did such a fantastic job filming our wedding day. He managed to capture beautiful moments in an unstaged manner. The drone footage is stunning and we are obsessed with the short feature film. Richard was so lovely to work with and has great communication skills, contacting us a few times prior to the day to ensure we were all on the same page as to what we would like. We are extremely happy with the finished products and can’t recommend Bride & Groom Film enough.

Laura & Ryan

Patience of a Saint !! 1 million percent yes ! Quality, flexibility and phenomenal client service would characterize our experience with Richard! Couldn’t recommend him enough. We love the final product! And due to our own fussiness it took us a while to get there , Richard did not bat an eyelid and changed for us what we wanted, after advice on what would or wouldn’t work and putting up with the constant change. Patience of a Saint ! The main reason we chose Richard in the beginning was after we sent some enquires he rang us to just confirm he had received it and had a quick chat on what we were looking for. You don't get that kind of personal service very often and it was really refreshing. One of the fantastic things also is that his Video looks like a camera so everything was so natural ! I was not keen on having my video online but if anyone wanted to see it please get in contact with me and I will


We couldn’t possibly praise Bride & Groom Films enough! Richard is an unbelievably, talented videographer. He is sure to create a unique and personal wedding video to help you relive every second of your big day! My husband and I planned our wedding from the U.S. and Bride & Groom Films created an absolutely stunning video so we can cherish every memory from our fairytale Ireland wedding! Our family & friends can’t stop raving about our beautiful wedding video. Richard, thank you for creating this masterpiece for us. We will cherish these memories forever! We are so grateful that you were able to capture our special day so perfectly.

Julie & Thomas Donaghue

Don't normally review companies online but made an exception in this case. From start to finish Richard from Bride & Groom films was amazing!! We put our complete trust in Richard to capture our special day and he didn't disappoint in fact went above and beyond all expections. We felt completely at ease & hardly noticed his presence on the day which is what you want as your already so nervous on the day, so thanks so much for your professionalism, kindness & for all the magical moments that will stay with us forever.

Jackie Drohan

We are absolutely gobsmaked, you have excelled yourself, we have watched the film about 10,000 times, our family and friends have said they have never seen a video of a wedding so well made, and are guests on the big day could not complement you enough,

You captured everything!!

Thank you for this, we will cherish this forever,

Kind regards

Norman & Claire

Norman & Claire

Firstly just to say thanks an absolute million! Absolutely chuffed with it. I can't say thanks enough for it, you really are so talented. A huge thanks too for always getting back to me whenever I had questions, and for making it out to us on the day with all of that snow. I can't sing your praises highly enough, but cheers from both of us for capturing such an amazing day, and I couldn't be happier that we chose you to save all those beautiful little memories of the day....and making us both look good!!!! Just absolutley amazing! Such a talent, and such a gentleman, a million thanks again 🙂

Aoife Nolan Murphy

Thank you very much again for capturing our day, especially after such short notice. We are delighted with both the videos, you captured some great moments, some we forgot as well, people are especially commenting on the footage at Roche castle. We have downloaded them and watched the full video twice today and the short one about 10 times already, we cant wait to share it with everyone now.

A million thanks for all your hard work, we cant believe we got VIP treatment and have our video already, thats an amazing turnaround, and I couldn't you enough, my new wife was dying to see it all again and your footage gave her happy tears a few times. Well be leaving a wee review on Facebook soon and again was an absolute privilege having you apart of our big day, not only just for videoing, people were saying how nice and well mannered you were.

Kindest Regards and a Million thanks!!,

Conor & Catherine Finnegan

After booking the celebrant and the venue, the videographer was next on my list as it's so important to me. Richard is a lovely guy, really unobtrusive on the day. The production quality of our video is second to none. We got a short video (about 4 minutes) as well as a long video (about an hour). Due to the COVID restrictions we weren't able to have everyone that we wanted there so the video was even more important. Richard really captured the emotion and beauty of the day, and the video has made some guests who couldn't attend cry! 🙂 It's beautifully paced and carefully edited. Our wedding video is something that we will cherish for years to come, and I am so glad that we were able to book one of the best videographers Ireland has to offer.

Hazel & Steven

Richard Finlay is the best at what he does. Look no further… Our family is very happy with the wedding films he has made for us… There is Richard, and then there is everybody else…

Monte Hellman

Thank you for all of your hard work in Copenhagen. You’re the best!


Could never conceive of getting married but, if I had to, there is nobody I’d want to film it more than Richard Finlay. Smart, insightful and the most erudite voyeur you could ever want, Finlay somehow makes the madness of marriages into mini masterpieces. He’s easy on the eye too so you might want him to stick around for the private filming later too.

You’re great at what you do… Thank you…

Bill Clinton

I received the DVDs this morning. Thank you so so much. I am absolutely delighted with it. I only had it on 5 mins and it had me in tears, great to re-live the day and see the details I didn’t even notice on the day. You captured everything. I am glad that I had you on the day, I didn’t like a lot of the photos my photographer took and there were few showing my son and my dress, you captured them all and this means so much to me. Another thing I loved was that you used the music I walked down the aisle to and some of the other music from the church which I thought was lovely. it really brought back the moment to me. It is more than I ever expected. Well worth the wait. Can’t wait to sit down tonight with Tommy and watch it again. Our plan was to watch it together and put it away and never watch it again because of the embarrassment but I will not be doing that. I love it, so I will be giving copies to my family and watching it over and over again. Thanks again for everything Richard, I will be highly recommending you to others.


Richard, thank you so much! We received our wedding DVD. You captured some of the best moments on our day, that we never even got to see until now! Your professional manner was admired by all of our guests, some of which hope to contact you in the near future. Thank you for the life-time memories!!!

Paul & Donna Marie Byrne

Have just watched our wedding DVD, and it has just exceeded our expectations completely. You captured moments we didn’t realise could be captured at all. The whole thing is just like a romantic film. The editing is outstanding. I always wanted to know what Shane’s face looked like as I was walking down the aisle!! I had no idea he was so emotional and you captured it perfectly. Thank you so much Richard. I cannot recommend you enough. We would wish you luck for the future, but really…you don’t need it!!

Kate and Shane Brilly

Just a word of thanks for an excellent job on our DVD. It was really well done. Easy to see why you got an award for your work. I’m sure we will see you again in the future.

Niall and Marie Dennigan

O my God!! The DVD is fantastic. Worth waiting for! The quality of both the picture and sound is first class. You captured all the special moments beautifully. I will definitely recommend you to friends and family. Thanks so much.

Patricia & James Bennett

We just wanted to say thank you so much for the excellent job you have done on our wedding DVD. It really is something that we will treasure forever and we look forward to sitting down in years to come watching it again and again. So many people have commented on the quality of the sound and colour. I never thought I’d forget a second of the day but it’s amazing to see all the little things that I had forgotten about already! Money can’t buy all the memories you’ve captured for us, thank you again.

Linda and Shane

Where do I start? I can’t rate Richard highly enough, he was brilliant to deal with from start to finish. We’re based in the west and I was a bit iffy about getting someone so far away, speaking to Richard put my mind at ease. He couldnt be more helpful and I have to say I genuinely didnt notice him filimg yet he captured some of the moments that I didn’t get to see on the day. The quality of the sound and colour really is second to none. Everyone says nice things when they watch your wedding dvd but so many people have told me how easy it was to watch, it just flows so well together. If anyone is looking for a videographer or just considering having one then log on to his website or pm me if you’d like me to rave some more about him!


Commenting on

Just to let you know we got the wedding DVD and its great, well worth the wait, you captured everything brilliantly. Thanks again for all your help and have a happy new year and continued success for 2009 Kind regards.

Paraic & Lynsey

Sorry I haven’t got in touch with you sooner to say thank you very much for our Wedding DVD. We are so happy with it and everyone in our family agree. We will defo be recommending you to all our friends and family. You were good fun on the day and didn’t make us nervous and it shows all that on the DVD. My sister has already booked you for her wedding in November ’09 and we look forward to seeing you. Thanks again Richard, you’re a true professional.

Michelle and Brian Smith

Thank you so much for the DVD. It was fantastic and we are really delighted with it. You captured everything and it was great to look at parts of it that we missed ourselves on the day. I will highly recommend you to anyone in the future that I know getting married. Thank you so much!

Kelly & Chris

The DVDs have arrived and we are really delighted with them, thanks a million for doing such a great job, it was so exciting seeing the day replayed again and the music is perfect, thank you so much.

Stephanie & John

We both consider this the best money we spent on the day. We had Richard Finlay of Bride and Groom Films and he was fab – very unobtrusive on the day, but he still managed to pick up on all the important moments. I think the big difference between having it done professionally and having friends video it for you is in the editing. We watched the DVD over and over when we first got it, and it really brought back all the excitment of the day, and there’s some really cute bits that the best of photographers couldn’t get. I wouldn’t say I watch it as much now, but it’s definitely one of the first things I would rescue if the house were on fire (even before the wedding photo’s)!

I just wanted to let you know that we are really happy with the DVD. The quality and editing is brilliant, we really love it! Thanks very much!

Emma & John

We really enjoyed the DVD, we haven’t stopped watching it! You really did a great job with it. Thanks very much for everything.

Sinéad & Gary

We were so pleased with Richard’s work. He was great to deal with and was very professional. We didn’t even notice he was there half the time. He captured every piece of the day. I have watched the DVD many times and still see something I didn’t see the first time. He was able to use some songs we gave him which made the DVD even more special. He produced a high quality DVD that we will be able to watch over and over again. We would highly recommend Richard.

Sylvia & Keith

Thank you so much Richard. We loved the DVD and I have watched it a total of 5 times in the past 36 hours!

Carmel & Roger

Thank you so much Richard. You captured the day perfectly even down to the music. It was more than what we expected. You have given us something we can enjoy for years to come.

Tracy & David

Thank you so much for the DVDs – we watched it over the weekend and it was brilliant. Thanks again for the soundtrack to the ceremony, a really nice touch. You really captured our day as it was and it’s a real treasure for us now.

Cynthia & Rodger

THANKS A MILLION for our wedding video, I couldn’t be happier with it. The video is absolutely fantastic, and as promised it was indeed worth the wait. As I’m sure you can imagine, we had forgotten bits and pieces of the day so it was the best thing to be able to relive it all (and without the ridiculous nerves this time!) – particularly the speeches, which of course we only remembered piecemeal. I have to say it was highly amusing to sit back in comfort and watch, first hand, the lads nerves during the speeches – priceless – I hadn’t realised just how nervous they were. I was really surprised at how thorough it is, how complete – nothing of the day is missing, which of course is what I hoped for but somehow didn’t expect to the level of the video. I’m SO pleased I can’t tell you. My only regret about the entire thing is that I didn’t go the whole hog and get you to stay for the entire time because the rest of the night was brilliant craic and there were some priceless moments that should definitely have been caught on tape (not sure if that would even have been an option). On the actual day, I was pleasantly surprised not to notice the camera at all really. Not having done this before we were weary that there would be lights and cables and mikes and such like but I am delighted to say it couldn’t have been further from that idea. Thanks again for capturing our day so well and so completely – I would highly recommend you to others as it is definitely one wedding bill that was worth every last penny – you just can’t buy those memories.

Orla & Paul Sheedy

I watched the DVD at the weekend and really enjoyed it as did my family, thanks so much for doing a wonderful job on the DVD.

Martina & Eamonn

We received our wedding DVDs on Monday and we are both very happy with them. The sound and picture quality is very good, and we will recommend you in the future. Thanks, I might see you at another wedding some day.


Thanks, we are really delighted with the DVD, it’s fantastic to have all those memories captured from the day, you did a great job on getting it all together and on the day, you were very subtle with the camera, I barely noticed you there at all throughout the day. Everyone is really over the moon with it.

Patricia Dilworth

If my husband keeps watching this DVD it won’t be there to watch in 20 years!!! That is how fantastic it is even down to the background music. I cried watching it as I loved all songs that Richard chose. It is a fabulous memory to keep forever & I would highly recommend Richard to anyone reading this.

Mairead & Emmet Butler

Well i got the dvds and absolutely loved it!!! It was so much better than i expected. everyone loved it thank you so much! I have a few friends getting married next year and i could not recommend you highly enough.

Sandra and Brian

Thank you again for all your help throughout, it has been a pleasure to deal with you & we were very impressed with the DVD it was great work that had us crying & laughing in equal measures!


Hi Richard We got our DVD on Friday and we all watched it Friday night. It was absolutely fantastic!! We were both really delighted with it, and thanks very much for getting it out to us on time for Dave’s Birthday on Friday. Cheers

Chris and Regina McGarel

We found Richard to be very professional before our wedding and on our big day. We were absolutely delighted with our wedding DVD and all our family complemented him on it also.

Eoin & Lisa

We could not fault Richard’s service in any aspect. His professionalism and courtesy from start to finish were faultless and he responded promptly to all contacts. On the day of the wedding he was unfailingly polite, professional and accommodating while simultaneously managing to be thoroughly unobtrusive. We are absolutely thrilled with our wedding DVD, which is a precious memento of our special day. As a large lady, I generally try to avoid all photos of myself – let alone moving images! – but I love watching the DVD. We are delighted with all aspects of Richard’s service.

Cliona & Ian

We just finished watching the DVD and we’re both delighted, you really did a fantastic job!! It was a last minute decision to get a DVD done and looking back, it would have been something that I would have really regretted had we not done it, especially seeing how well you have made it. It really sums up the whole day and we’ll always have it – I’ll be recommending you to anyone I hear of that’s getting married! The music is great in it too! We’re absolutely delighted with the way the DVD turned out. You did a fantastic job and we couldn’t recommend you highly enough. It is wonderful to know that we will always have the memories there for the future. Thank you so much for a wonderful job! Thanks for minding our memories for us, I couldn’t be happier!


Got our DVDs last week and we’re thrilled with them. Thank you so much.

Sandra and Chris

Richard filmed our wedding in Castle Durrow in September 2020 and did an excellent job. On the day he was unobstructive - we were worried about feeling "watched" or being asked to "act" but we needn't have as it was never an issue. The finished videos are beautifully edited and paced. The production quality is second to none. Both the long and short video are very special and really managed to capture the emotion and feeling of the day. Richard was also able to provide us with our ceremony music which is really nice to have as well. If you're looking for a top-quality, excellent, professional videographer, look no further than Bride & Groom films.

Hazel & Steven

Castle Durrow, 2020

The wedding video is fantastic. It was great to refresh memories of our day. We will be recommending you to all our friends who may be getting married in the future. Thanks again for doing a fantastic job.

Andrew and Aoife

Just a quick note to tell you how pleased we were with our wedding video. You managed to capture the essence of an Irish wedding perfectly, with subtle imagery of the guests expressions throughout the day. The music choice was excellent & was far beyond what we would have chosen ourselves. Your editing was first rate & was by far one of the best productions we have ever seen. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to any other couple intending to get married. Without your help & keen professional eye, memories of our special day would otherwise have been lost. Thanks again for a wonderful video & a timeless memory.

Dale & Mary Farrell

Killeigh, Co. Offaly

Just want to drop you a line to say thank you so much for all your hard work before, during and after our big day. You managed to capture so many special moments that brought back so many cherished memories. We were blown away by your high standard of professionalism. In fact most of the time we didn’t realise you were there and you made us and our guests feel so much at ease on the day. The editing and the sound track were more then we had hoped for, we have watched it over and over and each time it has brought a tear to our eye, we could not have asked for anything more. Thank you for going over and above our expectations. We are already recommending you to others.

Yvonne & Declan White

I was very impressed with the DVD. I am glad I left the music to you. The music was also very impressive. No Celine Dion, thank God! You captured everything in the video that I had talked about. All the little moments were there as well as the big moments. I will definitely be giving my vote to you for videographer of the year. You have a real talent for capturing all the little details aswell as the big ones. Thanks again for a wonderful, impressive wedding video.


Wow absolutely FANTASTIC. Thanks so much. Incredible talent!

Georgina & Rory

The clips are fantastic!!!! Can’t believe how well it looks…. we would without doubt recommend u to anyone and that's even without seeing the whole thing yet… it was really fantastic! Can’t wait to see the postman arriving! Thanks so much Richard! Talk soon

Tammy and Padraigh

I waited to get the reactions from my family members before I wrote my testimonial. Their reaction to the video was equally as impressed as we were! I cannot thank you enough for an amazingly beautiful video! Out of all our wedding expenses… this was the one part that was completely worth it and then some. The quality is unbelievable and your creative eye captured the feelings of the day rather than just a rolling video camera. Also we love the CD with the church music as well. If you are a Bride and are on the fence about getting this videographer, the answer is: Get Bride and Grooms at your wedding! You will not be sorry!

Janice & Kenneth

Having watched close friends and relatives getting married in the past few years one of the things that always stood out afterwards was the sub standard quality of their wedding DVD. With these concerns foremost in our minds, we approached the selection of our videographer with genuine care. Our minds were completely put at rest by the professionalism of Richard Finlay. Throughout our wedding day we barely noticed he was there and it was this unobtrusive style that most impressed us. His clear yet subtle promptings ensured that he got the most out of his filming work and upon receipt of our wedding DVD we were enthralled by the quality of the finished content which he had edited and compiled so perfectly. Throughout our dealings with Richard we found him to be highly courteous and generally just a nice fellow to do business with. We would have no hesitation in recommending Richard to any prospective bride and groom for their upcoming nuptials. For ease of mind and a top quality professional service there is no need to look any further than Bride and Groom Films.

Padraig & Sarah Foy

The DVD is excellent!! The sound and picture quality were brilliant throughout… loved the way all the little details were captured when we hardly knew you were there most of the time! You captured lots of moments that we didn't even notice on the day – thanks a mill It was a pleasure working with you on the day and we wish you all the best in the future.

Joanne & Frank McGrath

We had Richard film our wedding and all I can say is WOW! He did such an amazing job that in the few days since we received our DVD my husband and I have watched it at every opportunity. We booked Richard back in 2007 and in the interlude between then and the wedding we never once doubted our choice, he was professional and friendly at every turn. On the day he arrived early and got straight to work taking time only to introduce himself to my family and make acquaintance with our kids, especially our youngest who was quite shy on the day. By the time we were leaving for the church she was his new best friend and smiled and posed happily for him. I have to say that is the last time I noticed Richard until much later in the evening when we were getting ready for dancing, such is his discrete manner. He worked away and was barely noticed even by our guests who remarked at his lovely manner and unobtrusiveness. I can not tell you how much that meant to me as I am one of those people who hates to feel “on show” when attending a wedding. Now that the DVD is here I can honestly say that I am amazed he was not more noticeable on the day as he didn’t miss one second of the action. There is so much of the day that we missed as Bride and Groom getting photos taken and mixing with our guests but our DVD makes it possible to see our day thru the eyes of our guests and really captures the atmosphere of the day. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who wants a friendly professional who will do a great job without being in peoples faces on the day! Thank you Richard…you did an amazing job and I look forward to watching our DVD over and over !

Just wanted to send you a quick mail to say thank so much for recording our wedding last Friday in Brooklodge..we just cant wait to see the DVD as we had everything that day, the fun, laughter, the weather & the perfect venue with our friends & family. We really appreciate you looking after us at such short notice. You were a perfect addition to our wedding, very unassuming & a totally gentleman, that was very much appreciated & noted, so thank you!! Anyway, better log off as heading off to mauritius (as you do) in the morning, but again thank you from the bottom of our hearts & we’ll be in touch re the music etc on our return.

Lisa & Ken

Thank you so so much Richard for the fantasic video of our day! You captured so much without us even noticing you there which was perfect! And thanks for the capturing the fireworks at the end of the night.. i know it was a long day and we appreciated you staying on! The guest messages made us laugh and are a nice addition to the DVD. The highlights were fab and summed up the day..thanks to you! best of luck..and thanks again!

Niki & Paul

What can I say to thank you so much for everything you did for us on the day. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with- my favourite of all the wedding suppliers. I hardly knew you were there on the day, although you always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. I cannot wait to see the finished dvd.


On behalf of Sarah & myself I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for everything on Saturday. I love that most of the guests thought you were simply taking pictures and didn’t realise that they may now have hung themselves through word or action…just brilliant!! Thanks again for everything!

John & Sarah Bourke

We couldn’t be happier with our DVD. I actually cant stress enough how happy we are. We are so grateful to you for capturing everything so well there was floods of tears from everyone!!! And plenty of laughter too because you caught the funniest parts of the day too. We were all amazed by the DVD and seriously cant thank you enough. We’ll have the memory of our day, captured in the most beautiful way, forever. And that means the world to us!! We are so Grateful Richard Thank you so much from both of us.

Louise and Conor

Many thanks for the wedding DVD. It was great to watch. You captured every thing from the beginning to end. We would highly recommend you. We look forward to seeing you at my sisters wedding in a couple of years time. Thanks again for everything.

Margaret and Robert

We watched the video over the holidays and it was beautiful!! You captured the day perfectly.

Aoife & Patrick

Well, what can I say, from start to finish & everything in between the DVD is AMAZING!! We cried & laughed. Thank u so much, 100 times better than I ever imagined!

Lorraine & Daniel

Thank you so much for an amazing job…we both love the DVD. You couldn’t have done a better job. Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

Chris and Jo

Thank you so much for the amazing job you did on the video! It is such an amazing component of our story together. The video is also so much better than our pictures. Our family and friends are also extremely impressed by the video. It was wonderful working with you and to see the amazing outcome. We also did manage to convince the wedding venue to serve Jameson!

Florence & K-Ming

There are no words for how amazing our wedding Blu-Ray is. Thanks sooooooo much. We love it!

Kate & James

Hi Richard
Thanks a million for sending on the link. Our video actually arrived yesterday so we got to see the whole thing.
We absolutely love it. It’s so great to have as even watching it yesterday it reminded me of things that I had completely forgotten about so I can imagine how glad we will be to have it in 10 or 20 years’ time.
You were the consummate professional. Both Paul and I were commenting last night how we never even noticed you were there and that was exactly what we were looking for (no offense!).
We weren’t going to get a video initially but looking at your work now I am so glad that we changed our minds. It is something that we will teaser for years to come and hope to bore our children with ; – )
Thanks again. I shall be recommending you to other people.

Elizabeth & Paul

I received the wedding package on Friday and I was truly blown away. You have really done an outstanding job with both days events. My family were so impressed and delighted with the resulting editing and how you pieced it all together. Thank you so much for capturing such stunning footage that will last a lifetime. In particular my Mom was brought to tears of joy as she has had a tough time with her post-operative recovery. It really lifted her spirits, especially because she missed my brother Abbas’s speech on the day and for her to watch it all really meant a lot to her and all of us! My aunts were just over and all really enjoying it.
I absolutely love the editing and footage and I am astonished that you made a movie of such high calibre. I absolutely love the highlights and can’t wait to share it with all our guests who travelled from afar. I will highly recommend you to all my family and friends. You truly did capture every moment and in such a magical way. Thanks again for such an amazing wedding DVD, so many people have been blown away by the result and have said it feels like they are watching a Hollywood movie.

Fiza & Imran

Dear Richard,

We just wanted to write to thank you for the fantastic job you did on the wedding video! We just watched it again with the whole family and everyone loved it! You really captured some amazing images, seeing all our friends and family again brought back some great memories. It was also great to hear all the speeches again and to know that we will always have a reminder of a day that was so special to us.

Initially we were worried that having a videographer would be a distraction, but you blended in seamlessly, people didn’t even realize you were there. We would highly recommend you. Thanks again!

Naomi Sheridan & Mark Little

We received the video yesterday and it is truly lovely crying here remembering a great day and you captured it perfectly. You were a joy to deal with and you kept us so relaxed throughout the day. It meant a lot to us both that we were ourselves and not posed. Thank you for your time and effort.

Barbara & Padraig

We booked Richard Finlay, Bride and Groom Films and he was excellent. Richard really captured all of the little details without all of the cheese you generally see in wedding videos. Definitely one of the best suppliers we chose. Extremely professional and a lovely guy to deal with too!


WeddingsOnline forum

What can I say except thank you thank you thank you!!! The wedding video is just amazing. To be honest we were a bit dubious about having a video because we hated the thought of watching ourselves, but you did such a fantastic job that it’s not cringey in the slightest! The shots are all so amazing and professional – it actually looks like a movie! Also all of us are amazed that you managed to capture every detail and important moment on the day without us even noticing you! I’m so so happy with it and will definitely be recommending you to friends!

Nicole Healy

We just want to thank you so very much for your hard work on Friday and for making us all feel so comfortable in your presence. We didn’t even know that you were there most of the time which was exactly what we wanted. Thank you for your sense of humour which totally lifted the tension that can sometimes creep into these kind of occasions. I felt totally comfortable and ease with both yourself and Trish the photographer and I think that added to how relaxed I felt as a bride. We had the most magical day and I enjoyed it from start to finish. Again, thanks for helping to make our day so very special and we look forward to re-living it all over again when we receive the DVD from you.

Emma & Éanna

Thank you so much for the amazing job you did on our wedding day.

Jen and Colum

Thanks again Richard for the really great job on our dvds/blue rays – we couldn’t be happier! Happy New Year!

Aoife and Patrick

Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance for our wedding DVD! We absolutely love how you captured our day in your unique way! All of the footage runs so smoothly together and the quality is amazing! Thank you for being so relaxed on the day and making us feel so relaxed also! Best wishes to you for the future!

Gillian & Wes

We LOVED the video. It was more than we could have imagined. The photo sequence at the beginning and end were brilliant and just made it. The music over and the shots you got without people knowing were great. Thank you again & we would highly recommend you!!

Rob & Caroline

Well from start to finish & everything in between the DVD was AMAZING!!! Thousand times better than we could have ever imagined. And we have recommended you to anybody we know getting married. It was a pleasure working with you Richard & what a professional & discreet service on the day – you wouldn’t even of thought you were there! By far the best money spent on the wedding…

Lorraine & Daniel

Just want to say the wedding video is amazing. You did a great job. Thanks again.

Deirdre & Peter

Thank you so much I love it! It’s just beautiful. I can’t thank you enough. You were a pleasure to deal with and I’m so excited to see the finished movie.

Orlaith and Barry

Thank you so so much we love the preview and are so excited to see the main video. You are one seriously talented man. Thank you for capturing the amazing moments. I will be in touch shortly. Thank you so much again.

Janice and Barry

Thanks for our fabulous Wedding DVD Richard! We were very excited when we saw the preview, but even more impressed when the DVD arrived!

You were very friendly, discrete & professional on the day, and we hardly knew you were there, yet you still managed to capture the entire day and the little details!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard to any of my friends for their weddings!

Ciara & Chris O’Grady

We just watched our wedding DVD from our wedding in January and it is brilliant. You’ve done a fantastic job. Once I saw the “moments” you’d sent I knew it was going to be top class as it was. We’re only sorry now we didn’t have you recording until the night ended!!!

Yvonne & Kenneth

Just watched it wow its amazing tears in my eyes looking at it. Thank you so so much. So looking forward to seeing the full dvd. Thank you so much again Richard.


We watched the wedding video again last night and realised that we had never thanked your for your contribution to our big day.

We were absolutely delighted with our main video and the the short snip video. It gets better every time we watch it. Your editing and choice of songs were faultless and your skills have been praised by anyone that has watched it. We have no regrets in selecting you to capture our special day and we would be very happy to recommend you to our friends.

Eugene & Viv

Richard was great to deal with. He was friendly, approachable and a ‘fly on the wall’ on the day and our guests were impressed by how unobtrusive he was. He even turned up a half hour early on the morning as I had told him I wanted to leave the house early to visit my grandparents, who couldn’t attend. I highly recommend him to any bridal couple for their wedding.

Sorry only getting back to you now, has been a very busy Christmas! Thank you so much for the highlights and the DVD’s, to say we were delighted and impressed would be an understatement! We really couldn’t be more thrilled with the results! Everyone we showed it to has loved it! Thanks for everything on the day again! you did a great job! Hope you had a nice Christmas, all the best for the new year!

Ciara & Alan

Oh my gosh, I absolutely LOVE it. What an amazing job you have done. I’m so so happy with it. Thank you so so much.
So lovely to see it all like that and it’s so beautifully put together. You truly are very talented. I can’t wait to receive the full thing. Thank you again, we both love it.

Charlotte Ferry

Well I’m a blubbering mess all day lol. We both felt flooded with emotion watching it. You captured everything so perfectly. The amount of work you put in is unbelievable. Apart from marrying Mark it’s probably my favorite thing I get to hold onto. I’m so grateful. And to think I was thinking the entire time we were planning that I didn’t want a video lol. I’m so glad we got one and even more so that it was you who made it because you are incredible at what you do. I can’t thank you enough I’m genuinely so happy. Thanks a million.

Leeanne & Mark

I was so reluctant to have a videographer for our wedding because I usually hate seeing myself in videos. I also didn’t want to add unecessary costs to our day. After many family and friends told me I had to get one I booked Richard. I was absolutely blown away by his work. The amount of thought and attention to detail he captures is incredible. He cought every single emotion I felt that day. When he sent us a small clip both my husband and I cried with happiness (he’s not usually the emotional type). Our wedding and indeed our memories of our wedding wouldn’t be the same had we booked someone else. He is an absolute gentleman with an amazing talent.


Commenting on

After receiving our wedding video, to say we are delighted is an understatement. It’s incredible, and due to in no small part to Richards attention to the little things on our day. Capturing everything we asked for and a whole lot more throughout and keeping us both relaxed the whole time. Clearly a man who knows what he is doing and I could not recommended Bride and Groom films enough. The music choice on the video is also perfect!

Neil and Eimear

Finnstown House

I can’t recommend Richard highly enough. He was amazing on the day, so nonintrusive but still managed to capture all the intimate moments. Richard was amazing from the moment we contacted him throughout the whole process. We organised the wedding from Australia, so there were plenty of emails back and forth and Skype calls. He was always very prompt in replying and answering all questions. Richard is well worth every penny we spent. Thanks again Richard xxx

I don’t know if you remember me, I am Cat’s brother Robert. I met you on the day of the wedding and remember complementing your films and how well done they were. Cat had sent me a link beforehand of your work and I was quite impressed. Therefore it goes without saying how IMPRESSED I am about how the video turned out. It was great from start to finish. The song choice was equally as great as I have seen Dan & Cat sing that song together on guitar. Great job sir! You have an amazing talent and you should be proud of how you are able to immortalize some of the greatest moments. Thank you for your work!

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful wedding movie. We were thrilled with it. So lovely to relive it again.

Maire Folan

Thank you so much for our wedding DVD. We’ve so enjoyed watching it. I’m so sorry we didn’t email you back sooner, we only just realised that neither of us had mailed you the other week.

Thanks for making the day so special & being so helpful on the day..even though we hardly knew you were there, filming was so discreet. The video is such a lovely memory to have of our day.

Roisin & David O'Reilly

Unbelievable!!! We absolutely LOVE it! you’re so talented and couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you so much.

Richard, You didn’t disappoint, the videos are excellent! They are the perfect keepsake for our big day. Susan and I are both really looking forward to sharing them with our family and friends. I’m sure you have seen a vimeo traffic spike already as Susanfrantically shared the videos with her friends and family.Thanks again for everything Richard, your work is a complete credit to you and we are extremely thankful we had you capture and then edit our big day for us. I will have no problems recommending you to any friends we have getting married! 🙂Forever grateful, Ciaran and Susan.

Ciaran and Susan

The clip is amazing, it’s perfect.. we watched it together at dinner and my son max started crying I asked him what’s wrong he said ‘mam I miss our wedding’ so I think you brought back all the memories..I can’t thank you enough. We look forward to the dvd.

Ciara Behan

Just wanted to say thank you for capturing such wonderful memories of our wedding day. It’s lovely and we are really happy with it.

Thank you for making my wife so happy!

I have to say on the day I was like where is the video guy. Then we saw the DVD and my God, I was totally blown away with what he captured!! He captured EVERYTHING!! I seriously couldn’t recommend him enough!!! He was so discreet!!!

Amy + Declan

Killashee House Hotel wedding video

Richard is a professional and very easy to work with, he worked on our wedding day and did a smashing job. Our hotel asked to use some of his footage for their website to promote weddings as he did such a great job capturing the venue in all its glory. I would happily recommend Richard for your wedding or other events.

Eva Brennan

Dear Richard, Finally got the nerve up to watch my wedding video and i have to say what an excellent job you made with it. Considering i wasn’t going to have a video i’m so glad my friends talked me into it. Just love the way you captured the days best bits without intruding on people, and kept the video short and to the point. It brought a smile to my face reliving my big day. Many thanx Richard, your truly talented in your work.

Fiona & Liam Flood

I cant tell you enough how happy I am with the video of our wedding we received from Richard. It was way beyond what I had ever expected from the DVD and am absolutely delighted that we asked Richard from Bride & Groom Films to do the job. He was so professional and has given us some beautiful memories that would have been lost if it wasn’t for him. I will recommend him to everyone who is getting married, or infact needs a videographer for any occasion.

Asha & John

Hi Richard, We got our DVD’s yesterday, and watched it (several times!) last night – we are totally thrilled with it…. thank you. Both the quality of filming and editing are fantastic, and you really captured the flavour of the day for us. To be honest, Garrett wasn’t that fussed about getting a video done – he was worried that it would be too obtrusive on the day, and didn’t think he would bother watching it…. but he was the one insisting on reruns of it last night, and he’s already been on the phone to a mate of his recommending you for their forthcoming wedding! We both reckon it was the best money we spent on the wedding. Thank you for doing such a great job, both on the day, and afterwards. We will recommend you to all and sundry.

Erika & Garrett

Bride & Groom Films are the greatest. Richard, thanks very much for all the hard work you put into our wedding video. We love it.

Caroline & Patrick O’Leary

Richard, Thank you so much for the dvd. I can’t stop watching it even though I am photograph-phobic!! Every part of the day was captured beautifully and the timing with the music is genius. It is something we will definitely treasure forever. You were really great on the day although I think I met you once and didnt see you until you were going. Will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know getting married. Thanks again.

Claire & Sean

Richard I love love love the video. Thank you so so much.

Sorcha & Hicham

Hi Richard, We received our wedding DVD some time ago now (wedding was in August 07) but we wanted to say thanks-it was great!. We became a little worried a few days after the wedding (when things began to cool down!!), because we began to think of when we actually saw you filming and we began to ask ourselves if you got very much of the Church and reception at all!!!(and you probably know yourself-there’s a lot of so-called professionals out there) But when we got the DVD – it was great. You were there after all!! The DVD was very professional and you inserted the music we gave you at just the right times. It’s something we can enjoy looking at for the rest of our lives.

Simone & Adrian Tierney

We decided at the last minute on a having a video done professionally and are both so delighted that we did do this. Photographes are lovely but they just don’t capture the day the way the video does. Richard just seemed to get all the special little things in the day that we remembered but don’t have photographs of and he managed to even add a few suprises to our video which we loved. It has been lovely in the last two weeks to sit down and just look at certain sections again which I think is more a girlie thing but I just adore it. Both of us would have no hesitation in recommending Richard for anyones wedding and wish him all the best in the future.

Niamh and Shane Teskey

Richard, We just finished watching the DVD (twice). It is absolutely amazing, better than we thought a wedding video could be! I’m glad I changed my mind and got a video made because without it the memories of our big day just wouldn’t be complete. Our photographs were great but just weren’t enough. You got our vows, our family and friends, the speeches, the entire day just expertly edited together. The highlights you put together to our favourite song is just pure artistry. Paul said it was like a real film. Richard thank you so so much, we are proud to show this to everyone we know and to recommend you to everyone in the future.

Laura and Paul Sheridan

We just wanted to thank you so much Richard for our Wedding DVD, we just love it and it has brought all the emotion and memories of our special day to come flooding back. You were a true professional on the day and we honestly didnt notice you at all during the day. Everybody said how discreet you were and how comfortable you made people feel, especially the interviews at the end. Thanks again for giving us all the memories that we can now share with our family and friends. We wish you great success in the future.

Sarah Ann & Eamon Mulqueen

Richard Having looked at the DVD we are THRILLED with the result. It was just amazing and we are delighted that you captured our special day just the way we wanted. We will be recommending you highly. Best of luck for the future.

Helen & Richard

I’m finished with speeches for the rest of my life so I will keep this short. All I will say is thank you Richard for the surprise of our lives when we returned from our honeymoon. The best day of our lives, to re-live again and again forever. I’ll be proud to show the grandkids. Cheers mate.

Thomas & Fiona Bird

I e-mailed Richard to thank him for the great job he did on our wedding video and then spoke to him on the phone because I wanted to buy extra copies of our DVD. I offered to leave a testimonial here since I was so happy with his work. I don’t have much to say except that you will not regret it if you choose Richard. He was so nice even before our wedding, very helpful and professional. He was on time all day long, we hardly noticed him and he was still able to produce a top-class video. The highlights at the end of the video made my husband cry (don’t tell him I told you) and that is quite an achievement! The highlights are particularly nice because whenever I don’t feel like watching the entire video, I can re-live the best day of my life in 5 minutes and again I am speechless. I can’t recommend Richard enough to future couples.

Shauna & Matthew

Richard at one point during our big day I said to Stephen that you didn’t seem to be doing anything. I knew I had made the right choice based on your work but you didn’t seem to be filming a lot, in fact I hardly saw you at all on the day although I knew you were there. When we watched the DVD last week we both just said “Wow!” There is so much detail and emotion to every section of the DVD. You got all the small things that I didn’t even see on the day myself. Our candle, our cake, the champagne, the head table!!and the details that matter that we never would have been able to see again if it weren’t for the masterpiece you made for us. The quality of the DVD is great, thank you.

Sarah and Stephen

Richard of Bride and Groom Films did our wedding video in May and it is our most treasured wedding gift. We watched literally dozens of demo DVDs from other wedding videomen and Richard’s work just stood out as being the most professional (in fact, he was the only option). We don’t regret our decision for one second. Our family and friends commented and said that the video was great. They were expecting the video to be cheesy like most wedding videos, but they all loved it and Richard will be doing my sister’s wedding next year as a result. I can’t put it in words how glad I am that I picked Richard to video my wedding. Bride & Groom Films is the best! Thanks Richard!!

Fiona and Derek Dunleavy

We recently got married and have just got our DVD. Our videographer was Richard from Bride and Groom films. On the day, and even on the lead up to the wedding he was so nice and friendly and easy to deal with and easy to talk to. On the actual day he was fantastic i never really noticed him, he was very professional and very helpful. I was so nervous thinking about the DVD as i hate video cameras and stuff like that but after watching it, i have to say it was the best money we spent. I could sit and watch it over and over again. After all you spend so much time and money on this day and you put soo much effort into it, its great to have it all captured, especially after coming home after the HM and your on such a downer, its so great to relive it all over again. Also the DVD was just shot so well, its really beautiful and professional. Richard really did an excellent job, it could’nt of been done better. So if any of you B2B have Richard as your videographer you are in good hands. And if some of you havent decided on your videographer then you should definitely consider Bride and Groom Films, i couldn’t recommend them more.

Karen & Clayton

Hi Richard Just wanted to say that both Brian and I are really delighted with the wedding DVD you did for us. Your professionalism shines throughout as does the unobtrusive manner by which you carry out your work. We really could not be happier and wish you every success in your future endeavors. We certainly would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to anyone for any occasion that they may want captured forever.

Catherine & Brian

Richard did a fabulous job on our wedding video. He was unobtrusive but managed to get some great footage. He was a pleasure to meet and I would highly recommend him.

Deirdre & Alan

It’s absolutely fantastic. We love it. It brings back lots of happy memories. Thanks so much, B and G.

Beatrice & Gerard

Hi Richard, We just wanted to thank you for filming our wedding last December. We hadn’t originally planned on having the day recorded but now we are so happy that we did. You were fantastic on the day and worked so discreetly we almost didn’t notice that all the special moments of our day were being filmed right in front of us. The finished product is just lovely and was very cleverly and tastefully edited with obvious professionalism. The video is absolutely our most treasured wedding gift and we will keep it always to remind us of our special day. We would highly recommend your service and would urge anyone who is unsure whether to have a video just to have a look at some of your work and we believe they will instantly change their mind. We wish you all the very best of luck with Bride & Groom Films although we have no doubt you have a very successful future ahead of you.

Bernard & Tara Walsh

We finally watched the wedding film and we are delighted with it. We are so glad that we decided to get the video done. You caught so much of the day that seemed to pass us by, with everything else that was going on. Even himself who wasn’t too keen on getting it done is delighted we did and with the outcome.

Lyn & Justin

Hi Richard. We have received our videos and just wanted to say that we are delighted with them. You captured bits of the day that we had totally missed. Thechurch images at the end and the black and white shots really made the video. Thanks again for all you did. We will be proud to show the video to all our families and friends.

Michael & Sarah Conroy

Just wanted to let you know we received the DVDs. What a great job you did we really liked the editing and everything. I would definitely recommend you.

Eileen & Alan

We used Richard Finlay of BRIDE & GROOM FILMS I have to say on the day I was like where is the video guy. Then we saw the DVD and my God, I was totally blown away with what he captured!! He captured EVERYTHING!!! I seriously couldn’t recommend him enough!!! He was so discrete!!!

Bride commenting on

Hi Richard, we just watched the DVD, absolutely delighted with it. We couldn’t believe how much we missed on the day that you caught on camera. Fantastic!

Jennie & Paul

Richard I’m just dropping you a quick e-mail to let you know that David and I are so pleased with the wedding video you made for us. We received it months ago when we got back from our honeymoon in Vegas, but we never got back to you to let you know how much we loved it. I have watched it literally about a thousand times since. We had all the family over at Christmas and they loved it too. We will recommend Bride and Groom Films to anyone we know who is getting married in Dublin.

Niamh and David

Hi Richard, We got the DVD’s & they are nearly worn out at this stage! Thanks so much for the great job you did, we’re delighted with it. Our only regret was that we should have booked you for longer on the day! The 3 copies were a real surprise so thanks again all the mammies are thrilled! Thanks again for the super job, we’ll certainly reccommend your company to any other couple.

Susan & Garrett

Richard, Thank you so much. The wedding dvd is excellent, better than we ever expected. In fact, we are so impressed with it that we just cant stop watching it. It is so well done and the music and timing of everything in it is just 100%. Thank you so much. We will be definitely recommending you to everyone we know.

Pam & Stephen Whelan

Hi Richard Thank you for the DVD’s we received them on Thursday. They are fab you did a great job and a lovely choice of music we couldn’t have done better. It’s really great to relive the day again and see all the things we missed and forgot. Thanks again

Caroline & Chris Zambra

Hi Richard, Just want to say that you done a great job producing our wedding video, its been nearly two months since the wedding day and we totally relived it watching the DVD this weekend. Absolutely Brilliant. You captured some brilliant shots but on top of all of that you used some great music to accompany the footage. We will be recoommending you to anyone we know who is getting married in the future.

Mathew & Elaine Elliott

We received our video today and we are absolutely delighted with it, the music is brilliant, you picked songs we would never have taught of and they are really cool (delighted no Celine Dion like probably every other wedding video around), you really captured the mood of the day and have left us with a fabulous momento of our day, we will gladly recommend you if any of our friends decide to take the plunge. Thanks again for everything

Hazel & Ken

Richard, I cant thank you enough for the great job you did with our wedding dvd, I never would of imagined it turning out so well. Only have it a week and two friends already want to book you!!! Thanks again and best of luck in the future…

Donna & John Carrick

Hi Richard, We both want to thank you so much for the amazing DVD you produced for us. We couldn’t wait to see it and it is so much more than we could have expected. On the day you were so professional and unobtrusive, it was like you were never there!! My sister cried when she saw our dvd and booked you straight away for her own wedding!

We received our dvd on Friday last. We are absolutely delighted with it. It was everything we wanted and MORE! You were a true professional on the day and we hardly noticed you at all during the day. Everybody said how discreet you were. We have watched it so many times! Thanks again for giving us lovely memories of our day.

Wow!! What can we say? We are absolutley thrilled with our DVD. Richard you captured everything, especially the small details that on the day are easily missed by the bride and groom. Superb camera work, we smile every time we re-live the day. This is something we know our children’s children will enjoy. Fantastic – many, many thanks.

I can’t argue with perfection! Its brilliant. Exhausted today having watched it 6 times in a row.


Everybody who watches our Wedding DVD is amazed, they all loved it! He really captured the energy and happiness of our Wedding Day. My niece still watches it on a daily basis!! He was thoroughly professional and had our DVD back to us in great time! Would recommend him to anybody. Thanks for giving us such a beautiful memory of our day.
