Reflections and thanks from 2014…Hello 2015! :)

AshridgeHAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! What an incredible 2014 we had here at SOVP HQ! We can only hope that you all too had a lovely year and enjoyed the ride; whether you were planning a wedding or indeed having your special day!  It has been a pleasure filming and editing all the weddings and events we were involved in. We now look ahead to 2015 and all the events, adventures, new faces and challenges it has in store for us.

But at this time of year it would be silly for any company or person in fact not to take a little time for reflection of the year that has passed to ensure that all that was learnt and/or figured out is put into practice in the future. For wedding filming we have always considered good planning prior to the big day is on top of the list. This includes visiting the filming locations in advance and also making sure we meet with all our clients at least 6 weeks before the wedding day! As anyone who films or even photographs weddings/events knows; it is essential to get the correct ingredients for documenting exactly what the client requires so their are no disappointments afterwards.  Another aspect we will now make compulsory in our filming planning is to liaise with the venues we film at. It is a lot of fun working with operational staff at venues throughout the year but we rarely get to meet the sales teams at venues as they are usually not at the wedding day because, at this point, their job is then done and handed over to another department. Recently we had a meeting with the sales team at Theobalds Park in Hertfordshire and after a lovely chat and showcasing our previous wedding/event films they now would like to introduce us to their clients and so we are now proudly a wedding/events videography company officially recommended by Theobalds Park.  We cannot tell you how amazing this feels to have our work/company recognized by others in the field. On that note we have also had some amazing feedback from our clients which really drives us and inspires us to continue creating wonderful films and memories for our clients at the very highest standard we can!

So you are maybe wondering where the venue is which is photographed with this blog post? Or even why it is there? Well first of all it is an absolutely stunning wedding location right? It is our favourite venue of 2014 which we had the privilege to film at. Believe us their were some stunning ones including The Royal Naval College in Greenwich and also The Gherkin Building in the City of London! However, this venue is Ashridge House in Berkhamsted and we had a blast setting up our filming here and look forward to film there again this year!  This photo was actually taken today just prior a meeting with a new couple who found us online. So today was their first step of arranging their wedding videographer and ours of meeting a wonderful couple! 🙂

Just before the season becomes busy and we forget what day it is; we would love to say thank you to all our clients, past and present, and other wedding specialists for the continued love and support to us! We are proud to know you as friends too!x

Happy New Year!xxx
