Meredith and Leigh's Stop Motion Wedding Film - A Civil Ceremony and Drinks Reception at Denton Hall, Ilkley, Leeds.
"You're a frickin' genius! This is absolutely brilliant. We can't tell you how impressed we are with it and it's better than we could have ever imagined. The level of detail is amazing with all the little nuances (the shoes on the stairs, the cufflinks and the ring, the flat caps...we could go on and on). And the music - love it! Really, really fantastic music. Seriously, there aren't enough superlatives to describe how incredible this is. Thank you so much for all your hard work. It was really cool having you there for the weekend. Between the stop motion and Gary's stills we feel like we are reliving the weekend. You guys are the wedding A Team and we feel so lucky you guys worked with us. I have to tell you again how amazing it is. We've already watched it at least 40 times and keep seeing new things each time. The way you've made the pictures 'move' with the music, the way you caught the laying of the dance floor, the transitions (we look up on the stairs then we're in the car...I point in the car, then we're in the field...), the dancefloor pics and the beats of the music....it's all pure genius. You captured all the love, fun, and energy of the day and makes it seem like we are there all over again each time we watch it. We can't thank you enough and we love it!" Meredith & Leigh

THE GOOD STUFF
Perfect weather! Amazing to think we had stunning sunshine, perfect blue skies and bouncy fluffy clouds. The Friday night BBQ and evening Ceilidh was fantastic! What an amazing way to introduce everyone before the big day. Of course, this was made possible by Denton Hall's exclusive weekend hire - giving the whole Wedding a destination Wedding feel. We like! Actually, we love!
THE GREAT STUFF
Meredith and Leigh! The nicest, most fun couple in the universe! Not only were we made to feel incredibly welcome but nothing was too much trouble and they truly wanted everyone to have the most amazing time! and we did! I'm certain that I heard Meredith exclaim "My Wedding is awesome!". What a team! Everything worked like clockwork which is in no small part due the efforts of Andrea from Fabulous Day, the Wedding team at Denton Hall and the fantastic presentation by Box Tree Events. With everyone working in harmony it was just such as amazing day! A big thank you to Gary and Heidi (Photographers) for working so diligently with us to develop Stop Motion over the last year.
THE CLEVER STUFF
We also filmed the Ceremony and Speeches in traditional Cornerstone Cinema style so how did we manage to take so many images without making a constant shutter release "clack"? We used an amazing new technology on our new Cameras - electronic shutter - which essentially elliminates all the sound of the shutter release and the net result is Stop Motion recorded without even making a squeek! How's that for minimum footprint? Amazingly, the rest of the day was shot entirely on just two Cameras. So this is our very first Stop Motion Film - we took 7500 images, used 5000, trimmed to about 4500, selected 4 awesome creative commons music tracks to create 1 ultra awesome Stop Motion Film which blew the socks off 2 amazing people!
