Welcome to the very first post of our Strawberry Blog!

Our sweet new office space overlooking the Firth of Fourth in Fife.  Fantastic!

 

When we decided to journey into the blogosphere here at Strawberry, we considered a number of different approaches to how we wanted this whole blog-writing thing to play out. Do we offer you, our valued clients (or potential client!) posts about the Top Ten Gowns for 2017?  Perhaps we should author an illuminating exploration of the delicate balance between red or green flowers at the head table for your Christmas nuptials?  Both important choices of course, but we realized you can find insight on that elsewhere on this world-wide-web of ours. (Spoiler alert: the answer is a mixture of both colours!)

We also had no intention of sourcing the writing out to a blog-writing farm that churns out articles en-masse, presenting you with a piece of prose often plagiarized and definitely not indicative of what we’re all about. In fact, to that point, this and every blog post on here will be written by a member of our Strawberry team, grammatical errors and spelling mistakes a strong possibility. (Come on, we’re filmmakers, not Hemmingway!)

So then as we were sitting down at our proverbial typewriter we simply asked ourselves – why are you here? What do you want out of this blog?

And the answer was clear – you’re here because you want to know more about us! Who are we? Who are these people that film your wedding and make some cool short films about one of the biggest days of your life? As our favorite discount airline always says: ‘we know that you have options’ when it comes to hiring a wedding videographer, so what makes Strawberry Wedding Films the best choice for your day?

If there was one simple answer, it would come down to one thing. We’re HILARIOUS.  Seriously, we have a great sense of humour, and that’s not us saying that, or the opinion of well-meaning family members, but we’ve been told by some very honest and impartial people that we trust fully that we can crack a great joke. Mostly clean jokes as well!

Sure, we invest in the best cameras and audio equipment, and have a tight-knit core team of videographers, editors, & graphic designers from around the world. But anybody can just go out and buy good gear; here at Strawberry it’s more than that, because we don’t consider this just a job, it’s our lives. We enjoy making movies, we take pleasure in telling stories and we appreciate your enjoyment of our work. We feel like we’re good at what we do not because of years of experience, but because we have fun doing it. All of us here share the same philosophy, that you have to love what you do, and have a good laugh while you’re out there doing it.

So, put simply, this blog is about us and the weddings we shoot. It’s about the couples we meet, the places we get to visit, and the stories we are able to tell. There will be behind-the-scenes pics of gorgeous venues, tasty food, our hilarious team, and probably lots of rolling hills dotted with sheep. (Scotland really is a beautiful place to film!) So we hope you enjoy following us on our journey at the start of yours – because we may be with you on just your wedding day, but we take pride in crafting a story of that day that you will always cherish.
