Swynford Manor celebrations with Kerry & James

22 June 2018

Stunning couple Kerry and James met up with us at the studio after being kindly introduced to us by their friends (and Sovp previous clients) Stacey and Paul! So it was an honour to know that they both loved our style of wedding film and wanted us to now capture their special occasion.

The day for Sovp started at a lovely village Church close to Newmarket and this would be the setting for the ceremony and the formal vows! It really was perfect and the weather suited us fine with hints of sunshine and clouds. We captured some nice outside establishing shots of the church inside and outside way before the guests and Groom James arrived. We always try to do this because once people arrive the scene changes to the arrivals and the day gets alot more busy! smile

Once stunning bride Kerry arrived with her father and bridesmaids awaiting her; the ceremony began and it was really gorgeous. One key moment which Kerry asked us about after the wedding was whether or not our cameras had picked up a dark butterfly fly over the couple during their vows. Thankfully it did and this was truly wonderful. Our wide shot camera facing the guests managed to spot it. Have a check if you can see it or not; blink and you might miss it! smile

After the confetti shot we were all off to the reception party at Swynford Manor in Newmarket. The team their were ace and it really was a fabulous atmosphere from everyone. Working alongside photographer Ben Bull Photography was easy and we both managed to capture our creative shots with lots of laughter from us and the newlyweds.

The party was awesome and it was great to glidecam around the dancefloor to remind the couple and their guests what an electric party it really was!

We wish Kerry and James all the very best in their married lives together and hope that their wedding day film serves as a nice reminder of that wonderful day!x

A day of love for Jo & Dean at South Farm

18 June 2018
Filmed at: South Farm

It was a pleasure to capture the memories for Jo & Dean. It truly was a day of love, emotion, laughter and although alittle rain, nothing was going to dampen this wonderful occasion.

Stunning Bride Jo had contacted SOVP almost a year before her big day and we could not wait to get planning for the film.

The backdrop, or film set, for the day was the picturesque St Mary’s Church in Baldock for the ceremony and then once the official ‘I do’s’ were said it was off to South Farm for the celebration and wedding breakfast.

A highlight for us was certainly the couple photo session, where we were able to capture some fun loving shots with the newlyweds which feature in the highlights trailer. Inspite of the occasional rain the couple were awesome to be around and film. The atmosphere during the reception was filled with love, joy and laughter throughout the day. The South Farm team along with toastmaster Chris had everything covered and the day ran like clockwork.

We wish Jo & Dean love, good health and of course a true happiness in their married lives together and hope that their wedding film is a cherished keepsake to remember that very special occasion!x

All you need is love for Rosie & Elliot at Lillibrooke Manor

07 June 2018

We met with newlyweds Rosie and Elliot at the studio around 8 weeks before their big day; and from the start it was clear these two were lovely people and a really fun-loving couple too. Over a cuppa we discussed the wedding plans and it was clear that the day was going to be great and full of lovely details too! Which to what we gather Rosie was incharge of! grin

Rosie and Elliot chose the stunning Lillibrooke Manor in Berkshire to have their wedding day. This gorgeous Barn Wedding in Berkshire was the perfect place for such an a occasion too as it offer exclusivity and also a very rustic ambience.

The film for SOVP started early on at The Riverside Arts Club in Maidenhead. This scenic location was fabulous and was such a nice choice for the special bridal morning preparations to get started. As the day guests and groomsmen arrived our camera teams captured all the moments including a very emotional groom awaiting his bride and also the lovely walk together of Rosie and her proud Father towards the ceremony room.

Once the knot was tied and the drinks were flowing; the day was exactly as planned and filled with love and laughter. A highlight for SOVP was coming along with the couple with their awesome photographers Belle Momenti to capture some memorable couple shots.

Rosie and Elliot have been a pleasure to meet and of course film; and we are proud to have captured their very special occasion. We hope that their wedding film serves as a lasting reminder for many years to come of that perfect day at the manor!x

Hanbury Manor beauty for Natalie & Greg!

25 May 2018
Filmed at: Hanbury Manor

We promise you this. You will not find a more polite, friendly and fun loving couple than Natalie & Greg. It has been a massive joy to meet these lovely people and capture their memories on their special occasion.

The location of the wedding was the stunning Hanbury Manor in Ware. Part of the Marriott hotel giant; this film set is truly wonderful and always a pleasure to film at with the mix of modern and traditional feel.

Gorgeous bride Natalie wanted the bridal preparations filmed and, for film makers of weddings, this is always a fabulous way to start the film and it also gives the groom a much needed insight to that magical morning.

Dashing groom Greg was more than happy for us to capture natural shots during the guest arrivals and just prior the wedding ceremony. And again, this is a wonderful part to film because the bride gets to see how her loved ones all congregated just before the main event!

As the day and happy tears flowed we managed to head out inbetween the drinks reception and captured some nice couple shots during the photo session. The atmosphere throughout was upbeat and full of love.

Natalie and Greg were simply a joy to film and get to know. We wish them all the very best in their marriage, health and happiness together and hope they enjoy re-living where it all started for many years to come!x

A year in the life of SOVP...

03 May 2018

Its easy to capture memories if its what you love doing. Well we could not say that statement any louder because we love being able to capture memories for our clients. It truly is a pleasure to be asked to film a wedding day.

We know that the effort you have put into your day (and relationships) will shine on film and so it lives on for many years. The SOVP team is growing every year and we are delighted to welcome on board such amazing and talented videographers and film editors.

Its lovely to share a written blog with you, but sharing a 4 minute film trailer showing only a fraction of the beautiful weddings and events we were asked to film in the past 12 months is even more fun and rewarding.

As always, thank you for your love, encouragement, recommendations and enjoying our films.

Remember, life is short. So keeping your special occasions alive forever is an honour.

Best wishes and hope to see you soon, Martin and the SOVP team!x

Your Wedding Film Story, Captured with Love...

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…
