Amazing Spaces was started by Julia Finnis-Bedford in 2000 and it has grown from strength to strength, always following one key mission: to offer the best service in the fastest time and fulfill any location brief.
Julia Finnis-Bedford, was a freelance stills producer and whilst on shoots identified the gap – there was no such thing as a location agency at the time. Also, smaller production companies didn’t have the resources to find locations, and the small handful of locations that were having shoots were not professionally managed.
After being told by industry veterans that her idea would not work, Julia plunged right in and started Amazing Spaces in 2000. She hasn’t looked back.
From the beginning, it has been Julia’s driving passion to create a diverse portfolio of truly outstanding locations, to be empowered with relevant industry information, and to be solution-driven and the first port of call for all your location needs.
In 2004 Julia was asked by film producers for beautiful villas that would accommodate not only the international production crew, but also the stars. We already had villas in our portfolio that were available for accommodation, but we were only marketing them for shoots. And so the villa side of the business was born.
In 2010 marketing trends started to shift and clients were looking for more intimate experiential places to host events. The large hotels & huge conference centres had been used to death and Amazing Spaces, by natural progression, started offering their locations to the industry for events. Our locations enabled clients to offer their guests boutique, unique experiences in never-been-used-before spaces.
And then we had Amazing Spaces Locations, Villas and Venues as we know it today.
We are proud to be a service and solution orientated enterprise of passionate and empowered individuals, dedicated to marketing locations to the film, events & accommodation industries. What we do takes time, commitment and energy. We are dedicated to quality and service and we strive for consultation and engagement with our customer that leaves both our staff and our clients feeling inspired, motivated and satisfied.
All of this would not be what it is today without the team of remarkable women who make it happen on a day-to-day basis. We are a group of women who love what we do – we see great spaces and we meet amazing people.
We work hard, but we also believe in fun and cupcakes!
