Incredible work by Lightworks Films. For those of you getting married who haven't booked a videographer, I can't recommend them enough...and check out our same day edit. Just an unbelievable job by Lightworks Films.
They were to absolute best to work with! Our videos we received were fabulous and we honestly could not have imagined them to be as heart felt and moving as they were!! We have had hundreds of comments on our video and people are still talking the wedding highlight video.
Lightworks Films are more than just a wedding video company... they make your life into a Hollywood movie. This isn't the typical stale video's you see your friends have. The way they capture your and your significant other is purely magical and like a feature film. From the first conversation with Andrew, I knew I had made the perfect choice. Andrew is super flexible, and fun to work with.
