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
Kirsty and Jon arranged a beautiful wedding and it truly was a day of Family, love, emotion, alittle rain and laughter. April weddings are always a dream and the new beginnings of Spring certainly fit well for a good start of a marriage.
The backdrop, or film set, for the day was in Berkshire; with a traditional church in Ascot for the ceremony and then to the Royal Berkshire Hotel for the reception. The staff were so friendly and very professional, it truely was great fun to be back filming at this marvellous venue.
A highlight for us was certainly joining the newlyweds for their photo session and capturing some funloving candid moments of them around the splendid grounds of the hotel. We just about avoided the April showers too which was good!
We wish Kirsty and Jon love, health and of course a true happiness in their married lives together and hope that their wedding film is something themselves and their loved ones go back to time and time again to remember that special occasion!xView Video & Comments
We love these two! Clare and Barry (known to his friends as BJ) are such fun loving, vibrant, real and friendly people to be around. This made, capturing their wedding day so much more fun and a great memory for us too, it really did feel like we had known them for years.
The newlyweds were recommended to SOVP by their amazing photographer and friend of ours Marie Wootton of Marie Wootton Photography. After a nice meeting over a cuppa at the studio and discussing the wedding plans; we were booked and could not wait to start planning for the wedding film.
The Civil wedding was all held at the stunning Hitchin Priory in Hertfordshire; and we started in the morning for the bridal preparation shots. Bride Clare was so welcoming and introduced us to the prep room of bridesmaids, mums and flowergirls busy getting ready. From here the film began! Before we knew it, BJ and the groomsmen arrived and the ceremony time was upon us.
A highlight for us was certainly witnessing Clare’s father seeing his daughter for the ‘First Look’ as she was all ready just prior the ceremony. These moments, really are amazing on film, but witnessing them in real life, truly is heart warming.
We enjoyed filming some fabulous shots of Clare and BJ, during their photo session, around the grounds of the Hitchin Priory and even into the town centre! These two certainly make the screen come alive with Clare’s natural true beauty and BJ’s handsome looks. They are very much in love, so this made our job really easy! We could of filmed them all day long!
A quick mention to our friends the Piano DJ, who simply created a fabulous vibe with Tim playing the piano and the DJs in the evening setting the tone for the party.
We wish Clare & BJ and their lovely family all the very best for the future and thank them again for inviting us to attend 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…
