John did such a fantastic job at my boys’ birthday party! He travelled to us not a small distance, arrived well on time to set up and was professional. All kids and adults have enjoyed the show and the music was perfect.

Wedding Videography by John King

As standard, you would get two amazing videos telling the story of the wedding. The first is a "music video” and the second is a feature video. Both videos would have highlights of the day including guests arriving, bridal preparations, the ceremony itself, cake cutting and guests arriving until the first few dances. The music video is short and set to a song (or songs) of your choice whereas the feature video is longer and has no music overlay. Both videos will be delivered either on a disc or digitally according to your preference and we also have the facility to mass produce DVD copies at a nominal additional fee.
