Comments from Ovenu AGM meeting May 2013

“AGM was enjoyable and smoothly run.”
“Found the venue good and the presentation of the AGM up to the usual professional standard.”

From Zoe and Mark following their wedding in October 2009

We are both really pleased!"
Laura an Alessandro following their wedding in September 2009
“I have to confess I was really nervous about being filmed during our wedding, but Martin was so discreet I was completely oblivious to the camera and so were the other guests. He captured our wedding beautifully and it’s great to see some of the moments we missed on the day. I loved watching the speeches again and it was great to see what was going on in the church before I arrived. We’re both thrilled with the final DVD and by incorporating our choice of music and photographs from the day it feels really personal. I’m so happy we chose to have our wedding filmed and it’s a brilliant reminder of a lovely, lovely day. I would definitely recommend Clifford Solutions to anyone considering a wedding video.”
Zoe and Stuart following their wedding in August 2009
