Top Wedding Tips

Your special day has taken a long time to plan. After it you need great memories to fall back on. Choose Photos and Videos. Together they will provide many beautiful memories.

Photographs freeze 'special great moments in time' mainly without atmosphere. Videos capture the nerves, smiles, hugs n kisses, music n tears, the vows and dance. We produce both - the perfect choice

Try to get the nerves & speeches out of the way early. After you walk to your places at the table. Also tell the speakers to limit their chat to 10 mins. On this day long speeches are not appreciated.

Matt & Gina's Wedding 2018

A great setting in Quorn near Loughborough. The Bride wanted a highlights video of the Venue/Guests/Grooms Party/Ceremony and Speeches. Hope you like it ?

Video versus Photography

View this video to understand why Videos are now very popular. Laughs, tears, claps, hugs and kisses. Videos capture the Atmosphere from the day.

A few Wedding Videos in brief

These examples serve to demonstrate the quality of picture, audio and colour we can collect with our recording equipment. Videos have 'Atmosphere' - music, tears, laughs, speeches, vows. We can produce both within your budget

George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY provided the Photo/Video services for us during our Ceremony & Reception. We now possess 100's of beautiful photos on a CD, a Video of Paul's speech and a lovely musical DVD.

George's overall performance both prior to and on the day was always patient, attentive, friendly and professional.

We can both highly recommend the services of George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY.

" We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY for your Wedding Day.

We found George to be professional, organised, reliable and very capable. All was explained in detail and we knew EXACTLY what we were paying for, well in advance of our special day.

We wanted our full Church Ceremony Filmed - entrance, prayers, readings, vows, register and departure PLUS all of the speeches and giving of gifts. We were presented with 2 lengthy DVD's (very crisp and great audio too) and a CD of all of our Photographs (500+). We have relived those special moments many times since and are delighted with our memories. We are about to order a Musical SlideShow and more of our great DVD's.

Thankyou George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY. As far as value for money and final quality is concerned - you will find this Photo/Videographer is leading the pack. "

Telephone No can be provided on request for a verbal confirmation of our satisfaction.

We first met George at a Wedding Fayre last year inside Derby Cricket Ground's Marquee. We both liked his friendly confident manner and his obvious enthusiasm towards Photography. The quality of the stand content and the fact that a clear and detailed pricelist was openly displayed were also in his favour. We checked the prices and were delighted to note just how competitive they were. We decided to place our faith in George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY to provide us with memories of our day. We were quietly confident and this decision has proved to be the right one.

We now hold, within a week of our day, many special high quality photographs and a Speeches Video of excellect clarity and audio. We are both absolutely delighted with the hardware we now have. We intend to order a Musical SlideShow and many other items for family and friends. If you make the same decision - to employ George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY - you will not regret it.

George will guide you through the day with a friendly but firm professionalism and present you with a great result.

Our Telephone No is available from George if you wish a more private personal verbal reference from us.

" We had already selected our Photographer for our Wedding Day, but also wanted a Video of the Bridal Party preparation's, Ceremony and Speeches.

We placed an Ad on BIDVINE and George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY responded swiftly and quoted a very competitive price, so we agreed to meet George in Markfield near Coalville, who gave us a presentation of his work including a few past videos. We both agreed George had the experience we needed.

On the day George was calm, confident and professional and captured all of the footage we hoped he would and more.

The 4 Videos (normal and musical) and Presentation Case we have are brilliant - we could not be happier with the result.

We can confidently recommend George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY to any future couples and also say, now that we have watched ours, that the ability to have a ' rerun of actual events', with hugs, laughs, kisses, tears and claps is well worth the extra.

Perhaps if we had also known earlier of Georges dual video/photography skills we could have saved ourselves £100's.

George has our private mobile No if you wish us to confirm this review."

“We wanted to surprise our daughter with a Video of the important elements of her wedding. She had organised a friend for Photographs but no video. We wanted to see her special day on the TV relaxed at home - it all goes so fast when its your day.

With only a few weeks to go, we decided to go ahead with this and George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY was recommended to us.

We contacted George and met him at our local pub. He gave a presentation and showed us some of his past Wedding footage.

His obvious knowledge, long experience and confidence, convinced us that even at this late stage he would do a good job for us.

The Wedding Ceremony was held at St Werburghs Spondon, a beautiful Church. The Reception was at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel.

On the day George was very professional, respectful and courteous and we could tell he was doing the right things – we hoped his results would be good too.

We met again within days of the Wedding at our local to see the completed Videos and are delighted with the DVDs we now have.

We have 2 Discs each close to 55 mins duration – one of the Church Ceremony (Brides arrival to departure) plus one containing The speeches, cake cutting and first dance.

The picture, colours and audio are excellent and the DVD labels & Presentation Case we have is a great touch for this gift to our daughter/son in law.

Can we recommend George Baird PHOTOGRAPHY We certainly can and will now recommend him to others who want memories of their event.

If you employ George - he will take good care of you also and at a great price too”.

Hello and WELCOME. I was given a camera by my Uncle at age 15yrs. "See how you get on with that and learn how it works", he said. Soon I was shooting everything and fell in love with Photography. I shot a friends parents wedding for free and showed them a few of the pics. They were as good as their Pro - or so he said. Then I started charging, but well below other Photographers - I was still a teenager. Great way to get extra pocket money. Then much later tried Video Camcorders and got some great responses too. After 40+ yrs experience I still really enjoy a Wedding Shoot and producing great video footage. As a retired Business Manager talking to and presenting to B&G and Parents comes naturally and we all quickly relax and chat calmly about wedding preparations and what they want from me. I would be delighted to discuss your special day - please don't hesitate to contact me. If you wish to read past REVIEWS then please visit our website.
