Dru and Tom really are the icing on the cake for us film makers. Both genuinely lovely people and gorgeous on camera too! Their fun loving and friendly nature has made making their wedding day come back to life on the screen a true pleasure. Bride Dru had met us at a wedding show at her choosen wedding venue Ashridge House. Its always lovely to meet couples at wedding shows as its a real ice breaker and its really nice to hear their wishes for the film. Before we knew it, we were hired and the planning started.
SOVP are no strangers to Ashridge House as we are thankful recommended suppliers. However, everytime we return to this perfect venue its a fresh start and thats how we approach every wedding film commission. Dru and Tom arranged the perfect day to celebrate this new chapter in their lives with family and friends. We also felt like guests from the start and had alot of fun with the couple throughout the day.
The coverage for their day included the bridal prep and groom prep/sports activities and went all the way until the dancefloor was packed! The day was filled with love, laughter and happiness.
Working alongside photographer and friend Ivan Finch was fabulous as always too. He makes things very easy and relaxed.
Its been such a pleasure capturing the memories for these lovely newlyweds and hope their wedding film serves as a lasting memory for many many many years to come! xxView Video & Comments
We are not really sure how to begin this wedding film blog. Okay here goes. Wow! What a truly emotional, vibrant, magical, did I say emtional?! and gorgeous day we had with the beautiful Amy and Tom. And for SOVP the day was all of that and also the cinematography challenges were packed in too for good measure and believe me SOVP love a challenge. Making a clients dreams come true are what we always set out to do!x
Amy had been in touch with us some time before the big day. It was clear she had a vision for hers and Tom’s wedding video. The day was important to them both and for us that makes creating the video even more important and makes us aim higher. Amy is no stranger to weddings as she has a very sucessful hair business Hair by AmyTidey; and so she had added some great personal touches to the wedding with her style and, of course, for us some lovely ideas for filming the day too.
Yes, when you hire SOVP you are not just hiring a camera crew to simply point and shoot, but you are also hiring our creativity, experience and direction for the film. However, when Amy mentioned there was going to be a grand entrance of her guests in a Vintage Red Routemaster Bus and that she wanted it filmed arriving from the ground and from the sky…we got very excited!
Drone coverage will truly add the magic to your wedding video. Depending on your location of course, we can capture some wonderful aerial shots to set the scene for your big day. Take a look at the trailer to see how it all went!
The day was all set at the Gaynes Park Wedding Venue and the team made us feel most welcome from the start. With the setting and weather being so perfect and with the love and support from the guests; it would be fair to say that newlyweds Amy and Tom pulled of the best wedding and it was more than a pleasure to be a part of whilst capturing the memories.
A big shout out to magic man friend Lee Smith who wowed guests (and us) with his magic skills and also Nikki from Nikki’s Moments Photography who was very lovely to us throughout and we had a great rapport during the filming. DJs Disco Nyts too for being so chilled as ever and making the party come to life!
We wish both Amy and Tom all the very best in health and happiness in this next chapter of their relationship. And we hope that their wedding film reminds them forever more of that gorgeous day at Gaynes Park!xxView Video & Comments
What a gorgeous fairytale Chloe and Alex’s wedding day was! From the very beginning of the planning process for the newlyweds wedding day film it was simply joyous and we have been so proud to be a part of it.
The Wedding Day was filmed at the very grand Ashridge House, which we are very proud to be recommended videographers for, and what a setting this truly is. The SOVP team arrived early on to capture some lovely intro shots and to show off this perfect venue. Once the guests started to arrive the love was certainly in the air and the atmosphere was electric.
Chloe and Alex have such lovely warm and easy going personalities that capturing them on film was very easy and fun. Filming the couple photo session was alot of fun and we had alot of laughs inbetween the shots too; a really great memory for us!
We wish these lovely newlyweds all the love and happiness in the world. Its been such a pleasure and we too will treasure the memories of their amazing day!xxView Video & Comments
Amazing day and fun loving couple! Becky and Costas are two lovely people who invited us to capture their special occasion. Filmed at the beautiful Highgate House in Northampton the Sovp team travelled up from HQ in Hertfordshire to capture the memories.
Sovp are no strangers to filming weddings all over the UK and abroad so destination weddings are always seen as an adventure.
After meeting Becky and Costas at our pre-wedding video meeting in the studio nearly 3 months before the big day; it was clear to us that their wedding day was really important to them. The day itself was run perfectly by the friendly team at Highgate House and the air was filled with love and laughter throughout by the many guests.
A big shout out to Pho2u for being such lovely wedding photographers and to once again work alongside too. Lovely people!
We were lucky enough to also capture a sunset magic hour shot of the newlyweds too before we left!
Wishing Becky and Costas all the very best in the future and thank you again for inviting us to capture your very special occasion!xView Video & Comments
A gorgeous day was spent with the stunning Ellie and James on their wonderful wedding day at Woolston Manor Golf and Country Club. Ellie had made contact with SOVP many months before her wedding day after finding us online. She was delighted that we had the date available and so were we!
These two lovely people made capturing a wedding really easy. Both very fun loving and a delight to be around. Afterall natural wedding films are what SOVP are about and adding the touch of cinema to the film makes a great balance.
The day for us started with a Catholic wedding in Waltham Cross. And once the ‘I do’s’ were said and the confetti thrown we all made our way to Chigwell in Essex for a delightful welcome from the team at Woolston Manor. This was a new location for SOVP to film at and the day was certainly a sunny one filled with lots of love from the many guests that newlyweds Ellie and James had invited to share the special occasion with.
Capturing some stunning sunset shots around the golf course was definitely a highlight for us and we added these shots to the highlights trailer too.
It has been such a great time getting to know Ellie & James and we hope that their wedding film is cherished for many years and generations to come!xView Video & Comments
We all love a good wedding. And lets face it, it is one of the most emotional days a person can experience. Whether you’re a guest, a family member or a supplier for the wedding couple, we all have a different story to tell about how they got there and tied the knot.
Special Occasion Videos meets with soon-to-be newlyweds sometimes years before their special day. Usually over a cup of tea in the studio, we discuss their plans of how their wedding day will be and what their wedding film will look like.
This is a lovely moment for us because on the day we mostly blend in so we can capture events naturally and allow the occasion to unfold.
Please read our stories of how we experienced our lovely wedding couples’ days…
