Chapman Films began as a shared vision, passion and love for capturing genuine emotion and connections. the ability to preserve moments in time and create something that people will cherish for years, is what excites and drives us.
we originally met working together in the industry back in 2014 and quickly became best-friends after discovering we shared a lot of the same interests. together, we always had this desire to do more, to create more, to connect more.
deciding to combine our skills and experience, taking a chance and leaping into the unknown, we decided to leave our jobs and pursue our passion, establishing chapman films back in early 2016.
working together made us realise we have a purpose. Capturing moments between people and preserving memories that will be valued for years to come, is an indescribable feeling, and one we take very seriously.
It sounds cliché but we truely love what we do! We are very focused on creating a one-of-a-kind experience for our couples and devote all our passion, care, time and attention to detail into every couple and their wedding, from the first initial meeting to the last handover of their wedding films.
We love nothing more than creating genuine connections with our couples and we believe it’s this trust which allows us to keep our films raw, honest and meaningful.
We thank you for taking an interest, it would be our honour to capture your story. If you feel a connection with us and our work please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!

- our Approach -
Inspired by photography, film and storytelling, we decided early on that we wanted to construct our films to be unique, cinematic and more immersive than the traditional wedding video, even if that meant taking a risk and going against the trends of the wedding industry.
We like to keep things simple, clean and timeless, and our approach to our work is no different. we don’t follow trends or “cookie cutter” processes as we want our films to be watchable in 10, 20, 30+ years time.
we draw our inspiration from cinema and photography techniques, using good composition, lighting and depth in order to achieve the overall looks of our films, however our focus is always on the people, the places and capturing the atmosphere of your day. the story of the couple is always at the heart of what we do.
weddings are full of moments and emotion; we take a minimal equipment, minimal distraction and journalistic approach in order to capture these moments. we aren’t into special effects or cheesy fake shots, instead we just allow the day to unfold naturally, and focus on capturing those raw, real and genuine connections. Those moments Your mum and dad see you in your dress for the first time or you’re soon to be husband laughing through those uncontrollable tears as you walk down the aisle, these are the moments you’ll treasure.
our films are carefully constructed using up to 10 hours of wedding day footage, capturing all the key moments from the day. we use the ceremony and reception speeches, paired with carefully selected key moments, in order to create a film that is unique to you.
