What’s your style and why choose Martin Healy
Creative and personable yet discreet and professional!
Armed with loads of experience, I have filmed weddings in some of the most fabulous venues in Ireland and worked with the best photographers, make-up artists, florists and bands. One thing we all have in common is to make your day, a day to remember. My joy is in filming all those special moments as they naturally unfold and then creating a unique, stylish cinematic film just for you. Every film is tailored and produced to reflect who you are as a couple and to tell your story in an interesting, engaging and imaginative way.
I limit the number of wedding I film each year with most of my work coming from recommendations from delighted couples and photographers.
Tell me what’s involved in telling our story?
A little bit of forward planning…..
You put so much time and energy into planning every detail of your big day; it’s great for me to gather some snippets before the main event. Any special plans for the day, a little bit about yourselves, maybe one’s a bit shy, the other not so, one loves cats and the other loves dogs, music you like/don’t like, little things, big things, whatever you fancy.
Capturing those precious moments on film…
Behind the camera, and with a keen eye for a good shot, I capture all the joy of your celebration. Filming with the best cameras and Prime lenses allows me to use minimal equipment which means neither you nor your guests will notice me too much. My cameras are small and definitely no glaring lights, so most people don’t realise I’m filming.
Using two cameras I capture multiple angles, lots of expressions, delight, fun, laughter and sometimes the odd tear. I’ll get those special magical moments, the love and joyfulness of the occasion. Then back to the Edit Cave to start the production.
Producing and telling your story …
Now the work starts to produce your film. This takes time, creativity, a bit of art, a bit of science and a sprinkling of magic. I craft the footage into something captivating, beautiful and memorable, that’s tailored for you to reflect who you are as a couple.
I provide you with a lasting memory of this wonderful day, preserving your memories in a way that you will want to watch over and over and share with your family and friends.
Delivering the love story…
Once I’m happy with the final edit, I will contact you to let you know it’s ready and will get it out to you. I typically aim to get your film out to you within 20 weeks of your wedding day. Would love to be able to shorten that, but the editing and production steps take a lot of time to get it just right for you.
Film Night at Yours …
Rip open the popcorn and whatever you’re having with it, snuggle up and savour the moments, just the two or you or re-live the party again with family and friends.
What options do you offer?
This is where you are in control at the booking stage. Every couple is different, so I can work with your own preferences. Get in touch for package details.
What’s the cost?
The most popular package starts with the bridal preparations and continues right up to the first few dances – the whole day really. Prices start at €1800 for weddings in Ireland. There are lots of variations, depending on how much of your day you want filmed and which production edit you prefer.
Why invest in a wedding film?
Most couples spend a lot of money on their wedding day.
Hosting a once in a life-time celebration for your family and friends does not come cheap. With a wedding film you will have that one day forever.The ceremony and venue will be magnificent, the clothes, shoes and all that style, the food and drink, the flowers, the band, the list goes on… And of course not to mention your guests who will want to catch a few glimpses of them enjoying the day (we’re all human after all).
Your photographer will do a great job capturing all of those images.
A good film maker will capture the expressions, the sounds, the flow, the movements, the essence of your celebration in a way which will bring you right back. This is something you will treasure forever, a family heirloom which you can share and pass on.

Do you have a cut off time for filming?
I know through experience that despite the best planning in the world, things can get delayed a bit.. For that reason, I don’t have a cut off time. If you book me for your first dance, I will make sure I am there for it.

Yes. My music is fully licensed. This means you are free to share your film socially without fear of it being taken down.
