Highly recommended!

If you are not sure whether to get a videographer for your wedding (as we were!) definitely do!! We cannot recommend Martin and Carina enough. The whole process from initial enquiry to receiving our video was super easy and the result absolutely blew us away! I鈥檝e watched our video about 20 times already and it鈥檚 still no less emotional each time and brings back the whole essence of our day amazingly. Martin was super friendly and so professional, we hardly knew he was there! Thank you so much for capturing one of the best days of our lives so beautifully 鉂わ笍

He didn鈥檛 just make our video, he completed our wedding day!

WOWOWOWOW OMG! The videos are amazing!!!! We鈥檙e so so pleased to bits. We didn鈥檛 want a cheesy, soppy wedding video -we wanted something upbeat and fun to reflect our personalities and wedding, and you absolutely nailed it!! Every detail was captured including the general fabulosity and mad atmosphere.

Thank you so much for being so fabulous both in the editing suite and on the day. Your presence added to our whole wedding day and our guests loved the camera haha. We reflected on our day on our wedding night and genuinely were saying how it was people like you who made it so brilliant. The day itself and the videos were better than we could have ever imagined.

We can鈥檛 wait to have a cinema screening with our family and watch it every anniversary! Thank you so much. YES, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Perfect Wedding Video

We are so happy with our wedding video - it鈥檚 absolutely perfect! Martin had been recommended to us by my brother and sister-in-law so we were already familiar with the way he worked and his finished product.

Martin is incredibly professional and very friendly. His response times in the lead up to our wedding we鈥檙e very quick and the briefing call via Zoom was very helpful.

On the day, Martin arrived promptly and blended in to the background very well and worked very well with our photographer. In the nicest way possible, you almost forgot he was there!

We went for the Fred Astaire package (3 min trailer, 10 min mini film, and ceremony and speeches in full) and are thrilled with the results. The presentation of the memory stick in the little box is also a fantastic added touch!

We would absolutely recommend Martin to anyone who is looking for someone to capture their special day on film.

Amazing videographers!

Unbelievably happy with our wedding videos from the Camera Chap. We were so happy to have chosen them to capture our big day. Seamlessly slotting into the background, and capturing some truly amazing moments, they have given us videos that we will cherish forever. Can鈥檛 recommend or thank them enough! Definitely don鈥檛 hesitate to have a videographer if you鈥檙e on the fence. Our videos will be on repeat forever!

Phenomenal

Martin is phenomenal. He made us feel so at ease and comfortable at all times, which is exactly how you want to feel on your wedding day. He was unobtrusive, yet present, managing to capture all the very special moments of our day so so perfectly. You can鈥檛 stop time, but you can capture it, and Martin has encapsulated the happiest day of our lives beautifully. I cannot stop watching his film - it is just lovely. Thank you Martin - we will be in touch again when we next need to capture a huge milestone in our lives.

Harry & Priya

Well, all we can say is AH-mazing! We are still so in love with our wedding video and can only say a HUGE thank you to Martin & Mark for capturing our day so beautifully 鉂わ笍 It was not a hard decision in choosing Camera Chap Weddings to film our big day as they had been used in the family and we knew that they would just capture all those special moments we can re-watch again and again! Martin was a pleasure to work with and so stress-free, he went above and beyond to create our mini film which Harry & I absolutely love! Thank you so much again, love the Willis' x
