Mel is such a genuine, lovely guy and he made us both feel so at ease on the day. Our guests haven’t stopped commenting on his warm and approachable character. He has a real passion for what he does and was so emotionally invested in our big day.
Mel provides first class service - visiting us at home to show us what he could offer and to deliver the finished product. He also kept us up-to-date at every stage of the process.
His prices are extremely reasonable, yet the final product is of such high quality.
The turn around time was exceptional and we are over the moon with the footage captured.
Thank you so much!

My husband and I hired Mel to be our videographer for our wedding and we are so glad we did. Mel is professional and was such a lovely and funny guy. He has great attention to detail and worked hard at our wedding to give a quality service over a VERY long day! He floated in and out of our rooms getting his shots prior to the wedding with minimal disruption or stress to us, he worked away in the background and the videos he has done for us are brilliant. He chatted with us on several occasions before hand to make sure we got just what we wanted in terms of music tracks and even photos that meant a lot to us for the beginning of the video. He provides a really affordable but quality service and we can't thank him enough for capturing our special day. Thanks Mel! More...

We recently hired Mel at Midas production to recorded our wedding video. Mel is very reasonable priced, compared to other videographer on the market but that doesn’t mean he isn’t quality. The video is done to the highest standard and we are so happy with it, he has really captured our special day so well. Mel is a great guy, he is very professional and works really hard. We cannot recommend him highly enough. If your looking for a videographer to record your special day , it’s a simple decision - choose Midas Production you won’t regret it Thanks again Mel and all the best for the future Sheldon & Lucy More...

What an amazing experience and one of the best decisions we ever made!
Mel was a pleasure to work with from day one. It was a late request, he was one of the first to respond and his professionalism shone through, as did the fun. He definitely delivered, capturing the day wonderfully. I felt like he enjoyed the day almost as much as we did.
We really enjoyed working with him and now we having an amazing video to look back on. Thank you Mel from all the family, I would trust Mel and Midas Videos with any event. Amazing!

What a wonderful man Mel is from first meeting him Billy and l had the utmost confidence in him.

As it turned out our much anticipated special day took place during Storm Hannah which could of been a disaster. Not so for Mel. He got amazing footage of me running for the car with my dress round my neck, umbrellas blowing inside out and has made features of it all. The whole day is kept now for us to remember forever. Mel was like the Scarlet Pimpernel, here there and everywhere capturing all the great bits the bride wouldn’t normally see. He had captured every wonderful moment from the magnificent chaos of 11 bridesmaids and a bride getting ready to the first dance. The testermonials from friends and family quite brilliant. Mel is quite simply a professional who takes enormous pride in his work. He is also kind, patient and funny. All my family and friends loved him and felt relaxed around him. We can’t thank him enough for everything. More...

Saturday 6th April 2019.

The happiest day of my life arrived and what a perfect start with Mel
Kicking on mums door. I’m high sprigs and beaming smile and camera in hand. Mel came in and instantly made everyone feel comfortable and happy to be on film for the wedding day. Mel just blended in and captured the most fantastic moments from the girls getting their hair and make up done the the boys getting suited up and guests arriving at church.

Mel seems the have been so hard working and busy and managed to be absolutely everywhere on our big day and the video is just breath taking.

I asked Mel to get me as much footage as possible as I just knew our day would go in a flash. Well Mel has not disappointed and we now have the memories to watch again and again.

We cannot thank Mel enough for his hard work, patience, the hours you stayed with us on the day, your work ethic is fantastic and all our guests said how professional and caring you was.

We wish you all the best for the future and is anyone is looking for an honestly reliable hard working videographer to capture their own special moments then please give Mel a call he will not let you down.

Thank you again Mel.

What can I say he’s not only the loveliest man ever he’s professional , fun and a calming influence on what is the most important day of your life . He chatted and got involved with all my family and friends and I believe he enjoyed the day as much as us all.

10/10 , 5 stars and every recommendational quote that could be used !

If you are looking for a someone to video your special day who is low price, professional, chatty, funny, caring and who takes note of your every request then you should book Mel. I recently had Mel video our wedding and I couldn't reccomend him more. The DVD he created from the footage he took on the day is outstanding and he has even created two seperate DVD's of our speeches and some still shots as that is what I requested. Before our wedding he came to meet us for a few hours so that he could get to know us and emailed and called us several times before the big day to ensure everything ran smoothly. Love and appriciate you Mel. Thank you for being Amazing! More...

We recently celebrated my wife's 80th birthday which was held at Tiffany's Hotel in Blackpool on the 14th October . We decided that it would be good to have the occasion recorded on video for our family to look back on. We were highly delighted with the quality and the exhalent detail of the layout that Midas Video Productions produced on our Video. We would not hesitate in recommending this company to all our friends and family they where first class and nothing was too much trouble for Mr Mel Smallman who went that extra mile to provide us with a fantastic video to look back on in years to come. We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Bark's for recommending this excellent company to us Milly and John Wade. More...

Thanks for that Milly and John. It was was a pleasure to be part of this Special occasion. So pleased you all enjoyed the day and have this lasting memory. Regards Mel.

Mel did our wedding video for us. He attended the full day over and above what he originally said and managed to capture some really great moments which we would otherwise not have seen. Mel is a lovely guy and was very helpful and even assisted one of our bridesmaid's partners in getting somewhere to change prior to their room being ready. The day went very well and everyone who came in contact with Mel have said what a lovely man he is.
The intro to the video is themed to match the theme of our wedding and the music over the footage is perfectly timed to the moment being captured.
We would highly recommend Mel to anyone wanting a video of their special day and at a very competitive price.

Wow Sharon. What a great review! Cannot believe you remembered me sorting out a room for Ronnie with all that was going on. It was a pleasure. Cheers Mel.

Mel visited us before our wedding to discuss things.
On the actual day he arrived at the venue early and got to record our rooms being set up, this is something neither of us would have seen. He caught many more things that would have gone unnoticed too. I always wanted our wedding on video, Chris wasn't so keen and also said it would be unaffordable with our budget. Mel offered us an affordable price and upon seeing the video Chris is now very happy that we had it done. Mel is a friendly, happy and polite person and even our venue manager and photographer praised him.
Thank you for capturing our special day. Lorraine & Chris

No problem Lorraine. We both knew Chris would be over the moon when he saw it. Just the thought of being filmed put him off, but as I said, he wouldn't know I was around, and he didn't. LOL XX

Communion was easy and we found mel relaxed and easy going. Following our wedding on the 5th Aug17 mel has delivered a lovely video this morning. We are delighted with how mel has produced our video and pleased with the service overall. We will recommend you mel, pat yourself on the back. Thanks Jodie and Gary. X More...

Mel is very pleasant to work with, He spent quite some time prior to the wedding to ask what we wanted from the video. He took the trouble to visit the venue in advance to be sure of good pictures for the wedding video. He is a perfectionist and did his very best to capture the happy mood of the wedding and the personalities of the guests, as we had asked him to do. We were delighted with the finished product. Thank you very much Mel

I was given a Midas Video business card by a friend of mine as she knew I fancied have a video for my sons wedding. Having contacted Mel, he arranged to visit us to discuss what we thought we wanted and what he could produce. Can't explain how easy it turned out to be. We where worried that we would be advised to sort this out and that out, but Mel did it all. He came with a list of all the aspects of the wedding he would be filming, and as it turned out he filmed a whole lot more. We had other quotations before Midas and I must admit I was a little wary as Mels price was almost half that of some of them. With my friend recommending Midas and having seen their wedding video we just had to go ahead. How pleased we where. Thanks again Mel. More...

What can we say about Mel? From the first time we met at mums house, to the showing of the final video, it was like he was one of the family. He captured so much that we didn't know about, yet we
never really knew he was there. Thanks Midas Video. Thanks Mel for giving us such treasured memories.

Q&A

Having been involved in video production for many years, I still get such a buzz from showing the Bride and Groom the final proof of their Wedding Video.
The reactions are mixed. From tears to laughter. At the same time! I find it very emotionally rewarding.

The oppourtunity to be flexible and more productive with my time. It gives me the freedom to be more creative which obviously makes for even
better videos.

My clients come from all walks of life and I feel I can produce just what they want in a very informal and friendly way.
Plus my prices don't reflect the quality of the product, as many of my clients have pointed out to me. Full Wedding Videos from just £450?
