“Our wedding goals were to laugh, dance and party hard from the minute we opened our eyes and I think it’s safe to say Rob captured these moments perfectly. The way in which Curious Robin Films managed to present the best moments of our lives in 3 minutes still manages to take our breath away with every viewing For us this was the best gift anyone could receive and we can’t thank Curious Robin Films enough!”
