There is no question that VHS tapes have seen their day in the audio-visual timeline. But if you lived through the time they were the pinnacle of technology, then there’s a good chance you still have an old collection of VHS tapes in the loft. Perhaps there is an element of nostalgia, and maybe you have always planned to transfer them to DVD but just haven’t got around to it yet. It’s fine, a VHS tape doesn’t have a use-by date or anything, right?

There are some things that are too precious to be lost, particularly when there are things we can do to prevent that happening. One such thing is your old wedding videos.

Why not remind yourselves of the magic of your wedding day by transferring that VHS to DVD?
