This is SOVP.

Over a decade of experience in film production and wedding/event films; Special Occasion Video Productions (SOVP in short) was founded in 2009 by musician, coffee lover, cancer survivor, film producer and creative director Martin Van Der Sande.  After having worked in London in West-End theatre and corporate broadcasting tech capacities for a decade, in 2007 Martin was diagnosed with cancer and after his recovery in 2009 he decided to finally take the leap to set up his own video production company to capture those precious life memories for brides, grooms and their families.  Afterall, a memory like a wedding is simply priceless when all is said and done.

And what a amazing ride it has been! After having filmed many hundreds of events, SOVP is now an established and experienced film company in the wedding and event sector. The team has grown too, so working alongside Martin in the busy seasons, are now a production suite for experienced and creative freelance camera people and editors (Melissa, Tom, Patrick and Paul).  We house a fully equipped video editing studio in the village of Aston, Hertfordshire.

Our expertise in video production means you can trust us that your special day is perfectly documented; including the smallest details that you so carefully planned in the months before.  Your wedding day film will tell all the emotions you felt on the day itself.

And then you can sit back, relax, and press play on your special day!

A friendly creative team

We are a friendly team of creative people and capturing your special memories is our aim. On the day, you can trust us to be as unobtrusive as we can so you and your family and other guests feel as comfortable as possible.  We are true minimalists so you or your guests will not feel like a ‘film crew’ has arrived.  We will be the flies on the wall that capture every lovely detail of your beautiful day.

Capturing the memories

A key part to SOVP capturing your wedding or event is so that you and your families can enjoy your special occasion and then look forward to re-live the day on the screen.  Using high quality cameras small and discreet, along with hidden audio recording devices; is one step of how we achieve this goal.

We always offer a free meeting at our studio so you can meet us, discuss your special day and then to decide if we are a good fit. After all, your wedding film is something you will treasure forever so it’s important to us that you feel 100% happy with your choice of film makers!
