Carol and Paul are simply amazing. Their attention to detail, love and enthusiasm for what they do runs right through the booking process from start to finish. Our wedding video is fantastic and captures the complete essence of our day in a professional, fun and sympathetic way. I recommend Cut Above Productions at Hever Castle, where I work and I’m so very pleased that they were available to film our wedding day. Fantastic team! Thank you.

We had to write to say how pleased we are with the video!  We absolutely love it!  It is so romantic and completely captures the day as we remember it.  It also allows us to see the bits we missed, while having photos etc which is fantastic.  Our families were both over the moon with it, couldn’t believe how professional it was!   It is so helpful having it cut into small pieces as well, makes it easier to watch….and we have done many times already!

We are absolutely delighted with the film.  We have watched it at least 20 times and we have been in tears (as per usual).  It is just perfect and captures so many of the beautiful memories that we have from the day.  You have both done such a great job, not only was it a pleasure having you both at the wedding with us but you are both so talented with how you have edited/condensed the day into perfect moments.  You were great – thank you!

Thank you so much for our wedding video! It was great to remember the day-there are so many bits that pass you by in the excitement of the day that the team picked up in the video.  It was put together so well and the montage was a great few minute snapshot to share with family and friends.  Paul and Brandon were discreet on the day and Carol was always so helpful and friendly to deal with before and after.  Would highly recommend Cut Above Productions.  Thanks again we have a great video to treasure forever and show the kids and grandchildren one day!

Amanda and Nick

We got married on 1st October 2016 and Cut Above Productions captured every special moment and all the little details that made watching back the day nothing short of joyous.  We had the Platinum Package and honestly, it was priceless let alone worth every penny.  They were unobtrusive and discreet on the day whilst recording everything that was important to us and I cannot express in words how much we enjoyed watching it back.  Carol matched the music that we had chosen perfectly which gave our video a personal but film like quality.  The guest messages to camera were a gorgeous touch and a lovely keepsake.  Of course you can gamble on another supplier who may be slightly cheaper but as  you only get one chance to capture your special day I cannot recommend Cut Above Productions highly enough. You will be left with nothing short of a first class video that you will enjoy, re-living all the bits you missed as the bride and groom. We stayed up until 1 am watching ours twice as the first time wasn’t enough! Thank you Carol and Brandon for doing such an amazing job of recording our day that we will treasure forever.

Hi Carol and team Frazer and I cannot thank you enough for our amazing wedding video. We have watched it so many times already and you have done a fantastic job getting every little detail. Thank you Carol for being part of our special day. Can’t thank you enough xxx

Rebecca and Frazer

Paul and Rebecca filmed our wedding on 7th November 2015 and were absolutely fantastic in every way.   Paul filmed the bulk of the day and was very fun to be around.  He got on very well with our photographer so he really helped enhance the mood further.  He captured some  fantastic moments, some of which I had not even noticed he was there at the time!  Upon making the initial booking I spoke with Carol who again was so friendly and helpful and continued to be so after the wedding too.  All those that I have spoken with that are part of this company are brilliant at what they do and are so clearly passionate about their jobs. Finally the quality of the video is amazing and every time we watch it is like being there on our wedding day all over again.   I am so glad they came to our rescue when another company was unavailable on the day a I cannot recommend them highly enough.  Thank you you to all at Cut Above Productions you have really captured memories that we will be able to relive and treasure forever.

Amy and David

Thank you so much for our wedding video.  It is so beautifully put together and includes all the stunning details making it so magical and fairytale like.  Such a pleasure working with you. Emma and Tom got married at St Peters Church Hever and Penshurst Place and Gardens where we are recommended suppliers

Emma and Tom

Thank you so much Carol and Paul for the film of our wedding.  It is absolutely wonderful and we are so grateful to you both for your hard work.  I would recommend you to anyone who is getting married and wants a keepsake that they can treasure forever.  Photos last a lifetime but a video lets you relive the best day of your lives again and again.  We could no have asked for anything more!

Vicki and Ollie

Penshurst Place

Choosing Cut Above Productions was one of the best decisions we made.  We met Carol, she was so friendly and quickly put us at ease about being filmed.  She took the time to explain what she could offer and made us feel very comfortable having her with us on our day.  We asked for a list of things we wanted included and these requests were all met perfectly. On the day itself within about 20 minutes we had forgotten she was there but watching back the video she had been everywhere.  She never intruded but captured everything beautifully.  Watching the DVD back was a real pleasure because of all the little things that we had not noticed, it is so wonderful to have everything recorded forever. The film was beautifully edited and it was clear that it had been made with our requests in mind.  We would recommend Cut Above without hesitation to anyone – we are so happy with our film

Emma and Tom

I just had to tell you how much we love our wedding video, it is wonderful thank you so much! We also loved Paul as did our guests, we had so many lovely comments about him from our guests I just had to relay this.  We are so happy that he was part of our special day and you have both done a wonderful job of capturing the essence of our special day. Heartfelt thanks to you both!

The video has been received and we LOVE it! It’s so lovely to experience the day from another perspective and relive all the wonderful memories.  We are so grateful.

Ramesh and Louise

We wanted to say a massive thank you for the great video you took of our wedding.  We have enjoyed sharing it with friends and family and they have all commented on how well you captured our day.  It has brought out so many emotions in everyone we have shown it to.  On the day you made us feel comfortable and you were never invasive yet managed to capture all the footage you needed without being seen !  We will definitely be recommending you to anyone who is in need of a videographer – your service has been excellent.  We appreciate all of the work you put in not only on our wedding day but also with the production of our finished video.  Thanks for giving us the prefect long lasting memory that we can always treasure.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Carol for the exceptional video you made of our wedding day.  Everyone who has seen it has said how beautiful it is and how you have captured every magical moment perfectly!  We can’t wait to take the video over to Italy now to show the rest of the family!  Thank you once again and we will be highly recommending you!  Lots of love Sheena & Michele

We love our film and have watched it countless times already. Thank you so much!

Rachelle and Tom

Carol and her team were amazing to work with, We didn’t even notice we were being filmed most of the day. The editing was incredible and the video was better than we ever thought it could be.  We loved the little snippet of the video that we received, it is like re-living the day all over again. Thank you so much Carol, we loved having you there on our special day and really appreciate the hard work you put into the video that you produces. I would choose Carol over and and over again.

Amber and Ashley

The Spa Hotel

We hired Carol and her team to film our wedding.  It was a bit last minute in terms of wedding planning but one of the best decisions we made. Carol and her team couldn’t have offered a better service. Everything she offered was clear, great value and we met her a few weeks before the wedding to discuss all the arrangements to make sure that we were all happy. On the day itself they couldn’t have done a better job. My husband said “you didn’t even know they were there”, so discreet yet the film is perfect capturing all of the key moments.  We have just watched our film it is beautiful two hours of our day. Photo’s from the day provide fantastic memories but a film adds something extra special to the day and a lifetime of memories. We would recommend that everyone getting married seriously considers getting it filmed, it is worth every penny and if you do you must use Cut Above Productions. Thank you Carol.

Georgina and James

Barnsgate Manor

We would like to say how smitten we are with our Wedding DVD !!! It captures perfectly all the defining moments of what was a most perfect day. Being able to meet Carol a few months beforehand was a great help and made us feel so comfortable with the process. Carol and Paul were the consummate professionals on the day an we really could not have asked for anything more. We are both so appreciative too of the really quick turnaround in receiving the DVD which meant the world to us as it gave us the opportunity to watch it together with our families before heading back overseas.

Stuart and Roz

From the moment we met with Carol to receiving the final product, she has been incredibly attentive, caring and dedicated to giving us what we wanted.  She gave us a bespoke package to suit our needs, caught every moment we desired, presented the final disc perfectly edited and managed to make us laugh and cry at the same time! Worth every penny and really has made our wedding experience complete.  We would strongly recommend to anyone to use Cut Above Productions ahead of anyone else… PERFECTION!

Graham and Sophie

Cut Above were super prompt when replying to emails right from the start and Carol did everything in her power to fit in with our rather hectic plans (we had two locations and a horseback ride in between planned). Paul was an absolute star on the day – not only professional but he put no pressure on the proceedings at all and instead was reassuringly calm and supportive. So many people said how charming and engaging he had been. I was blown away by their professionalism and their work and especially by the tenderness they managed to get across in the film. They even contacted our photographer before the wedding and there was no stepping on toes. We were thrilled to work with them

Veronika and Tim

Thank you so much for your work on our wedding day. You made us feel so calm and relaxed and thank you for going above and beyond,  I remember you even sorting my suit jacket for me.  The wedding highlights brought absolute joy to our hearts.  From the bottom of our hearts we thank you and appreciate everything you have done.

Samantha and Samuel

The High Rocks

We received our video in the post and had a great day watching it all back it is BRILLIANT ! Thank you so much.

Paula and Chris

We finally got round to watching the DVD last night, I think we can both safely say that having a videographer filming the wedding was by far the best decision that we made. The day went by in such a blur it was wonderful to relive all of those little moments and shared jokes that were so quickly forgotten. As for your service, without a doubt we will certainly be recommending you to friends and family, nothing was to much trouble and watching back the DVD it felt like you understood the vibe of the day like picking up on guests reactions during the speeches especially when they had been mentioned was so brilliant I have no idea how you managed to work out who was who so quickly! Thank you so much for capturing a lovely memory we are now able to re-live forever.

Tom and Paula

We just want to say how amazing your guys were all day, discreet and so professional we did not even know they were there and they got some amazing footage! When we watched it back there were tears of happiness and lots of laughter, you captured the moments we remembered but also the ones we did not even know were happening and so many of the little details that we had taken time in planning and of course our wonderful friends and family. Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly. We would definitely recommend others to hire Cut Above Productions.

Michelle and Simon

We booked Cut Above because upon meeting Carol she was very friendly and had some great ideas on what would work for the camera and also an amazing price for the service provided.  We were really pleased with the service and DVD, they were so friendly and got some great coverage of the entire wedding including some very funny moments.  Overall we are extremely pleased with the finished product and would definitely recommend Carol and Cut Above Productions

We have just watched our wedding DVD……….. OMG  !!!!!! It’s AMAZING. Thank you so much for all your hard work making our video, what a fantastic film, I can’t wait for our guests to see it! Our film is everything we wanted AND more! You are the best videographer ever!! Many thanks

Laura and Simon

Carol – we LOVE it, the film is even better than we had imagined.  You have managed to capture so much!

Mandy and Warren

I was quite sceptical and didn’t give it as much value/importance as I should… some friends say they regretted not having their wedding filmed and I can say now I would have done too. We absolutely loved our film and really enjoyed watching how you had brought it all together… some lovely effects, it is amazing, brings everything back to life for you – you don’t get that with photo’s.  We would definitely recommend you

Emily and Crispin

Thanks for producing such a fantastic wedding film for us. We and our friends/family are very impressed with the end results and we are particularly grateful for your professionalism on the day. For obvious reasons your service is something that we hope not to have to use again but we will of course, recommend you to everyone we know getting married!

Anna and Will

Just watched our wedding video and it is even more beautiful than we could have imagined.  We are so grateful we love the whole thing and it’s so amazing to be reminded of the best days of our lives!  Can’t stop watching it back.  Looking forward to getting the family together to relive our special day.  Thank you so much Carol it is perfect!

Lewis and Harriet

Thank you so much for all of the work that you have put into our wedding video, not just on the day but afterwards as well. It is amazing and we are truly amazed by the quality of the film. It is just like re-living our day again, there are parts within the film that we had forgotten about or not seen on the day so it’s like seeing it all from a different view! We are just so pleased with the finished film and so glad that we chose you to be our videographer!

Ellie and Nathan

We are literally so happy with our Wedding DVD. You have down an amazing job, it was even better than we expected it to be. Thank you so much, it outshone all of expectations and you captured our day perfectly, I was also highly impressed as to how quickly we received our DVD and the editing was brilliant. When we were planning our wedding I was not sure whether to have a videographer but I am so glad I did and would recommend you to anyone.

Keely and Luke

We received the DVD and have watched it from start to finish this afternoon with many tears, yet again! We absolutely love it. It is such a great video with so many amazing memories captured beautifully. Thank you so much!

Eloise and Michael

Brilliant!! I have recommended Cut Above Productions to many of my friends and family. I enjoyed my sister-in-laws wedding video so much I booked them

Cheri and Jonathan

We are tremendously appreciative of the job that you and your assistant did on the day and could not be happier with the outcome. The film has already been viewed on several occasions by friends and family and we really love all of the touches in it. We particularly loved the shots of the guests enjoying a drink at the reception, where we didn’t really get to mingle much. We didn’t even realise you were filming during the photo session down by the lake and there are a few really inmate moments there. We barely noticed you on the day, we have a wonderful record of our day thanks to you.

Amba and Neil

Thank you so much for our wedding DVD it is absolutely amazing!!! It means so much to us to have our wedding saved forever. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and you have captured the magic and emotions of this special time. It was wonderful to hear the speeches again and to see our guests enjoying themselves as much as we were.  We were able to relive parts of the day that we were involved in and see those that we were elsewhere for. Having our wedding filmed was one of the best choices we made for our wedding.

Howard and Katherine

We found Carol to be knowledgeable, professional and polite throughout the whole process. From our first meeting to delivery of the final film she made us feel very comfortable. She understood the venue and got the best from it and on the day was invaluable in helping the photographer who was not familiar with the setting. The final film is wonderful and she was able to incorporate all the little details we wanted. I have no hesitation in recommending Cut Above Productions.

Mark and Jodie

The wedding film was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! We cannot recommend you highly enough. You both went way above our expectations, thank you! You helped make Samantha & Anthony’s wedding perfect! Donna Skocic, Mother of The Bride

Samantha and Anthony

We are extremely glad we had our wedding filmed and so lucky to have Cut Above Productions filming it for us.You were the bottom line in professionalism. It was like re living the day all over again and that’s exactly what we were hoping for. It exceeded all expectations. Beautifully filmed, the music fits perfectly and you captured the magic of the day. We can’t stop watching it. Everyone has cried, it’s simply fantastic! We feel blessed to have had you working with us on our big day. Thank you falls short when trying to convey our gratitude. Thank you SO very much for your hard work, we shall treasure it forever.

Dan and Amber Myers-Smith

Wow is all I can say! Thank you Carol & Paul so much for our wonderful wedding video. It is truly fantastic from start to finish.

I have invited some close family for tea to come and watch it too and everyone is astounded by the quality and your ability to capture all the special little moments. The guest messages were fab! The music and editing is second to none and we could not be happier.

Aside from the finished product we would just like to say thank you so much for your thoughtful and professional manner throughout and it was a real pleasure to work with you both. We would highly recommend you to anybody wanting to capture some very special moments never to be forgotten.

Gemma and Neil Henson

We are very glad we had our wedding filmed. In fact we have now been converted from people that did not want the day filmed to encouraging all the couples we know getting married to film it if their budget can stretch to it.

You were very polite and friendly and not at all pushy or ‘in the way’. In fact we were impressed by the fact we lost track of time and the first dance was a bit later than we had said and it was not until a guest reminded us that we needed to do one that we realized what the time was. It was nice not to be hassled despite this lapse of time – we have heard that other videographers have left when their contract time was up or got ‘stroppy’ when things ran over. Our wedding film was amazing, tear jerking and funny. I have watched it a million times and it is just as well these things are now on DVD since I would have worn out a VHS tape by now!! All my friends love it. The montage is a fantastic touch to summarise the day. I honestly look back and wonder how on earth we achieved such a brilliant day and it is truly wonderful to have that captured on film as well as photographs.  Thank you very much for the excellent service you have provided, right from the beginning to end.  We are immensely grateful for the effort and time put into making a permanent visual memory for us.

Natasha and Lee Hilton

Our wedding film surpassed all our expectations and we are so glad we chose to have it filmed. The editing, the way the music is laid on top, the way all the important moments have been captured is fantastic. There are so many parts of the day that, as the bride and groom, you miss out on – but to be able to sit and watch the DVD it allows you to relive the day and see all those little bits you didn’t catch on the day. Thoroughly recommend that others have their wedding filmed as well!

Ryan and Ally

Could we just thank you for a really lovely video – indeed for the whole “experience”.

We thought that you and your colleague were fabulous on the day; professional without being stuffy or pompous, engaging and approachable – but unobtrusive and unintrusive.

Thank you for your value-adding contribution to our day!

Peter and Dawn Curzon

Hi Carol, we both just wanted to say how absolutely thrilled we are with our wedding DVD – you have done the most amazing job. You captured it all so perfectly and put in so many of the pieces of music we love as well. We loved watching it and re-living our special day. Thank goodness we found you to film the day – we love it. thank you again!

Anne-Marie & Nick

We watched the DVD last night – brilliant! I am so glad I persuaded Tim to get the day filmed as now I’m sure we’ll watch it again and again. I especially loved the message from the bridesmaids – what a lovely touch. Such a brilliant memory to look back on. The montage is absolutely fabulous – I LOVE IT! Just captures all the best bits of the day – it is amazing, awesome! I cant believe how excited I am to see it… I think its because you’ve captured the whole day in a few minutes – it’s a real short sharp burst of all the emotions!!! Just brilliant!!!! Thank you so much xxx

Jo and Tim Dale

It was very important to us that we had a special record of our Wedding, but we had concerns that the cameras would take over on the day, yet somehow Carol managed to give us a very intimate and emotional record of our day without even intruding. She was a pleasure to work with. Totally professional but at the same time listened to what we wanted, asked all the right questions and therefore the end result was perfect. We have no concerns in recommending her work highly

Laura and Andrew Lawton

Just finished watching our film – it is so lovely – thank you
