The adventure certainly began for Caroline & Dean on their amazing wedding day. It was a real pleasure to be there on the special day too to capture the memories.
Sadly we were unable to meet with these lovely newlyweds prior the special day. So the first time we met was on the big day itself. It honestly felt like we had been friends for ages and we were simply capturing the day for them and being part of the day as guests too. The atmosphere was fun loving and was filled with support from all the guests.
The wedding day for us started with the bridal party shots at Caroline & Dean’s gorgeous home which they had just developed themselves! No wonder it was tricky to meet before the wedding right?! The prep is always a great way to start the day and the girls were all so lovely, welcoming and friendly too! Before we knew it, the church wedding was complete and the knot had been tied. It was now time to celebrate at Hunton Park in Watford for the reception. Rain or shine, the party was fabulous and with some emotional speeches, grand location and a loving atmosphere; this wedding was awesome and had all the ingredience for a great film too.
Our friends at Disco Services UK were on hand for the DJ entertainment and Ray kept the dance floor packed and fun all night too.
Its been such a pleasure to be part of this special occasion. We truly hope that Caroline and Dean enjoy reliving their day and also that their beautiful young family get to see and remember the magic of it all too as the years go by!xView Video & Comments
It feels strange to think that Gemma & Rhys’ wedding day was probably the hottest day of the year! But thats because its now a cold autumn day and as we complete their wedding edit here in the studio and look back at their wedding day memories, the gorgeous weather simply takes us back.
For us it was a particular special occasion too as it was Martin’s birthday too (Creative director of SOVP). And what a fabulous occasion it truly was too and to be part of!
Gemma & Rhys met with us at the studio in Aston Village approx 8 weeks before their big day for a pre-wedding video meeting and they were such easy going and fun loving people. Over a cuppa we discussed the wedding plans ahead and learnt more about them and their wishes for the film. The wedding was all filmed at Down Hall, which is such a grand place and perfect for such an event. SOVP are no strangers to Down Hall Weddings and its always a pleasure to return time and time again.
It was sadly after the wedding, Gemma had some very sad news to tell us that her grandfather had passed away shortly after the wedding. Of course, we are fully aware that capturing memories on such a special day in a families life is also to ensure those loved ones present on the day can be filmed and remembered for years to come. However we recalled that Gemma’s grandfather did a reading during the marriage ceremony; and very well done too. In memory of this lovely man, we decided to include the entire reading in their highlights trailer. The words are very inspirational, lovingly read and told with such wisdom too.
It has been a pleasure capturing the memories for Gemma & Rhys. Their wedding was amazing; and so we hope the film gives them a taste and a lasting memory of their special occasion for many happy years to come!xView Video & Comments
Its only after a wedding once we head back to the studio and we realise just how emotional wedding days really are. Alex & Peter’s special occasion was exactly that…full of love, laughter, happy tears and every emotion under the sun. It really was an honour to be invited to come along to capture the memories for them.
We first met up with the newlyweds, after receiving a phone call from groom Peter, and a meeting at our studio in Aston was quickly set up. It was a matter of weeks before the wedding and the couple had just about decided they wanted their day filmed. Over a cup of tea and nice chat in the studio we were hired and really looking forward to the big day!
The day was gorgeous and every little detail was thought about and bride Alex had included some wonderful personal touches for the occasion. A particular highlight for us was the sun coming out the moment the arrival of the bridal party was announced. It was truly magical!
The Knebworth Barns are a really wonderful team and it was a pleasure to work alongside Martin and his very friendly team. We really do recommend this venue and the Knebworth House as your wedding venue. It has some amazing gardens and the location is just perfect.
We wish both Alex, Peter and their lovely family all the very best for the future. We hope that their wedding film is a lastng reminder of what was a truly special occasion!xView Video & Comments
A absolutely dreamy day was had at Offley Place Country House Hotel at Nikki & Jack’s wedding. We had such a blast getting to know these newlyweds and after having a pre-wedding meeting at Offley afew weeks before the big day, it was clear to see that Nikki & Jack were very much in love with each other and their up and coming special occasion.
As recommended suppliers to Offley Place, we felt very much at home on the wedding day. The team are a great one and always ready to help out and make you feel welcome. For more info on Offley Place Hotel, please click here.
As English summer weddings go, we felt lucky with the weather as there was some cloud around; but regardless to this the newlyweds and there guests celebrated the day with love and laughter.
We wish both Nikki and Jack all the very best and thank you again for inviting us to capture the memories!xView Video & Comments
For us, wedding days are fun, memorable, emotional, different to the norm and thats just some ways to describe them. However, Paula & Rob’s day truly lived up to that and was a day we will always remember.
These two lovely people made us feel welcome from the very start; after meeting with them at the studio here in Aston Village, Hertfordshire. It was over a cup of tea and after a busy day too, we sat down with the newlyweds and instantly knew these guys were not just lovely people, but people who really were so very excited to be married and have their day remembered on film. For a event film maker, this is huge and we love capturing the memories!
The wedding was held in Watford for a traditional and very musical Catholic ceremony and then it was off to St Michaels Manor Hotel in St Albans for the reception and party. The day was beautiful. The guests brought along love and laughter to the atomosphere and with the newlyweds as in love with each other as with their special day, it was a film makers dream! We felt like guests ourselves too!
The team at St Michaels Manor were amazing and as always so friendly and professional. We are proud to be recommended by them too.
A highlight for us was going along with the Paula and Rob for their couple photograph session. This moment is always fun, but these two were just a joy to film and to be around. Even when the light rain came along, they were kissing and having fun!
Entertained by the very well known Mr H Productions who provided the disco and live music/singer; the party was electric and was the perfect end to what is the start of a new chapter for Paula and Rob.
We wish them all the best in health, wealth and happiness for their future and thank them again for inviting us to capture their very special occasion!xxView 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…
