Well, a few days up and no-ones commented which is a shame as this is such a well shot piece with cracking quality filming and audio (brat in Bride's vows excepted, though we've all had that).
I can't help feeling though that the edit lost its way just a little.
A very powerful intro that petered off as it went along.
Cutting from the bride's vows to the empty church shot had no significance for me and that was my cut off point.
Others may see this differently and I'm sure the clients were (rightly) over the moon.

Do not follow, I may not lead. Do not lead . . . I may not follow.

No problem for me cutting to the reception....but didn't like that first shot down the stairs. A few unnecessary 'shaky' shots Dana? (The makeup brushes spring to mind) Why not use a 'snapshot' instead? Loved the audio balance, with the live audio at the start - something I always struggle with. :( Favourite shot was the pull back out of the candle. Superb! Liked the dynamism of the second piece of music. What was it?

Branny/Arthur, thanks for the positive feedback and constructive comments. This is what I am looking for to keep moving forward. Thankyou for taking the time to review.

Sorry Arthur, I had meant to go and find the name of this piece of music ages ago and got caught up. Sorry. It is - Poppiholla (Original Radio Edit) - it was given to me by another bride but it did not fit with their footage so recycled it here. We're big on that down ere in Devon!

Nothing wrong with that dana. I always keep 'different' pieces of music for when I'm asked to choose it myself. :)
