About me

I'm a wedding videographer and film maker based in Leeds, West Yorkshire where I live with my wife Laura and our highly adorable but demanding children!

Before shooting weddings, I spent over 10 years as a professional film maker in the world of corporate and commercial, working with local and prestigious clients from educational institutes such as Leeds Beckett University and Leeds College of Building to high end commercial projects with Coca Cola, Reebok & Channel 4.


My wife and I tied the knot in 2022 and we had the most amazing day. After experiencing so much love and joy from that day I was inspired to start making wedding films.

I like a brew whenever I can get one, and I will always do my very best to help to get through the snacks during bridal prep. Be warned, if you play Taylor Swift on the dance floor you may be treated to my finest dance moves!

My approach

I take a relaxed approach to filming your day, and want to enjoy it as much as you do! Working with small and portable equipment allows me to remain discreet enough not to interfere with the day. My aim is to capture real moments as they happen to create memories that last a lifetime. Of course if you're up for it, I love to work with your photographer to create some magic during any portrait sessions, and I can't promise I won't drag you out for those golden hour moments!

I shoot with high end Sony mirrorless cameras along with professional audio recording equipment which without boring you with technical jargon allows me to capture stunning cinematic quality images and sounds without sacrificing portability. 

 

I like to try and enjoy your wedding day as much as you. After all you will be spending a LOT of time with your photographer and videographer, and it's crucial you pick someone you can get along with. You can trust me to charm your in laws and keep your bridesmaids happy, whilst at the same time keeping a cool head when times get stressful. 

 

I very much take a story driven, emotional lead to my films. I like to capture moments and let them breath. The nervous flower girl giving herself a prep talk, your Grand dad getting precious moments during the drinks reception to play with your nephews, reassuring words from the Best Man to the Groom. All these moments are stories to be told and look back on forever.  

Creating beautiful, cinematic and emotive memories is a passion for me, and I can't wait to create some of those moments with you and your special day!

Some of the fantastic venues I have filmed at;

 

Stretton Manor Barn | Howsham Hall | The Manor House at Lindley | The Mansion | The Faversham | New Craven Hall | Rise Hall | Hirst Priory
Sneaton Castle | East Riddlesden Hall | Swancar Country House | Carlton Towers | Willerby Hill

We were debating whether to use a wedding videographer, but after choosing Martin, receiving the Final Cut and being absolutely delighted with the result, we’d recommend Martin Wan Films to anyone who wants a beautiful visual memory of their special day.
Martin was personably, chatty and funny with our guests, whenever we requested anything his answer would be ‘yes’, we couldn’t be happier with the final result.
