Promotional Video and Photography
The Maplehurst Boutique Guest House is a beautiful Arts & Crafts style home in Galashiels, a town on the Scottish Borders. It has three luxury bedrooms: two with kingsize beds and one with twin single beds. Each bedroom is individual decorated in the Arts & Crafts theme, allowing each room to have its own personality and charm.
They offer tailor-made gourmet breakfasts that are cooked on an Aga using locally sourced ingredients.
As well as the traditional guest house experience, Maplehurst also offers settings for business meetings, fishing and golf, as well as event hire.
Although Maplehurst’s website already contained some lovely imagery, they felt that it was time to update these to show the venue as it currently stands. The architectural photography was to include shots of some new bedrooms that have recently opened. Customer wanted to take the opportunity to have some aerial photographs taken to give a better overall view of the house and its surroundings. Maplehurst Owners were also keen to have a promotional video produced, to further showcase the quality of their establishment and the luxurious interior and exterior that they have to offer, as well as their cooking academy and fine dining club.
We produced a two promotional videos for Maplehurst. We used a combination of aerial drone filming, ground shots and interior shots to create a video that shows a journey through the grounds and inside the guest house around the different rooms.
The video features many close-ups of the beautiful interior furnishings to show the luxurious nature of the guest house. Slow, gentle panning shots of the garden and building exterior show the grandeur of the surrounding environment whilst keeping in-line with the relaxing and welcoming interior shots.
We photographed the new bedrooms at Maplehurst in a similar style to the photographs that they already had of their existing bedrooms. Tip: when having additional photography taken of a venue, it’s important to ensure they match your current imagery for brand consistency and to create a cohesive look across your marketing materials.
We fired up our drones and sent them up into the air to take photographs of Maplehurst from the air. The surrounding trees and rolling hills give a whimsical, natural look to the photographs. Drone shots such as these are perfect for showing the secluded nature of a building.
The sweeping lawns, well-kept gardens and vast array of maple, pine and cherry trees are a huge selling point for Maplehurst; we took advantage of the summer sunshine to capture the beauty of the house and gardens.
