We capture your love story. Whilst you’re enjoying the day, we capture the details you don’t see and turn it into timeless wedding videography you can have to enjoy for the rest of your lives. A wedding film is more than just a video; it’s your story, an investment into preserving the memories of a lifetime.
BABALU FILMS STORY
2015, 2016 & 2017 brought Babalu some of its proudest moments when we won the wedding videography category at the South West Wedding Awards. The videography category finalists were chosen based on votes and comments from previous couples, with the winner selected by expert judges. We were so thankful to all of the lovely people who voted for us and overwhelmed to have won.
We’re often asked about our name – ‘Babalu?’ It has a special meaning to my wife and I – the name of a funky little café we found in Reykjavik, Iceland, shortly after we got engaged! It was such a lovely little place. Babalu was so welcoming and fun – the perfect place for us to celebrate! We left with warm memories, and (although I didn’t know it at the time) a name for a future company!
We’ve had the privilege of working with some incredible couples to produce wedding videos all across Devon and Cornwall, on what is the biggest day of their lives together. Having a wedding filmed is a way for that special day to be remembered for years to come, and we pride ourselves of keeping it candid but cinematic.
Here are just a few of the wedding films that we have been lucky enough to produce.
Perfection in details
WHAT WE DO
AND HOW WE DO IT
Beautiful, Bespoke Wedding Films
Every wedding day is beautiful, and we pride ourselves in capturing the essence of that within our films. A mix of cinematic motion and calm, emotional stillness. This is what we love doing, it’s a our passion.
Discrete and unobtrusive
We aim for you to barely notice we’re there at all. We capture candid moments, not staged set pieces. Our cameras are all dslr or mirrorless models, meaning they’re no bigger than a stills camera. We can film from the periphery, or weave unnoticed amongst your guests.
Beautiful colour, your choice of music
Colour grading is all part of the process in making your wedding film look incredible. Just like editing a photo, this is the part where even more emotion can be revealed, and the beauty of the day drawn out. It can be a time consuming process, every shot gets worked on. But this is included as standard as part of every single package, for every single wedding.
Award winning wedding film makers that capture the essence of your day, so you can re-live it forever.
WHAT YOU GET
Our packages include both a 5 minute highlight film, distilling the emotion and essence of your wedding in a 5 minute excerpt, and a feature length ‘documentary’ edit.
We are incredibly proud to be ‘Wedding Film’ category winners in South West Wedding Award, 2015 and 2016. A huge thanks to all of our amazing couples who voted for us and left such incredible comments.

“Choosing Babalu Films to record our day was by far the easiest decision we made. Looking through the highlight reels gave me goosebumps. The quality was incredible, like nothing we’d seen before in a wedding video.
“It was important to us that the videographer would be someone we would warm to so that on the day he would fit in with the rest of our guests too! I pretty much forgot he was even there (apart from when he brought out the ‘wow’ factor, the drone!) Chris has a lot of gadgets and a real passion and eye for getting the best shots of the day without being distracting or intrusive”
Cat & Lee
“We met Chris 6 months prior to our wedding and immediately booked him. He kept in contact right up to the day to make sure we were happy and he was fully up to date with everything that was planned for our big day. He was a pleasure to have at our wedding and u couldn’t think of another company filling his spot. The work he produced was “epic” the highlights video we still watch every week and the DVD captured the day perfectly.
“The price I paid didn’t justify the work and commitment that he put in but the package he made just for us was amazing He always had a smile and had impeccable work ethic and I would recommend him to any couple.”
Lauren & Steve
“I don’t even know where to start! We still sob every time we re-watch our wedding videos together and thank you to these guys we can for years to come. From the moment we saw Babalu’s work we just knew they had to be a part of our day, no other videographer we saw reduced us to tears capturing the exact emotions in their wedding films like Babalu did.
“We feel they deserve to be praised to the stars and above, not only for their undeniable creativity but their intuitive heart felt connection that they bring to their work. They picked the experience from our hearts and ensured that no matter what life brings, we shall never forget the joy, magic and love that we felt and shared together on that day. But they also did it in such a way that many cannot.
“They perfectly captured Love in motion, in its present, pure form and etched it into a film so that it may not only be shared but be truly felt for many, many years to come!!! Thank you.”
Lee & Ian

Our 2019 clients have been kept updated, but for everyone else – Chris (who answers emails/messages) has been in hospital, so there may be a slight delay coming back. But one advantage of extended hospital stays – lots of edit time!read more
In telling the story, we tend to structure our wedding videos (Cornwall, Devon) around a rough chronology – which means that most of the reception footage will come near the end. We run through how to get AMAZING film content during party time…read more
Most wedding venues in the Cornwall, Devon and the South-West can offer the use of a mic & speaker system for speeches. We’re 100% happy either way! But for wedding videos, this does have a range of pros and cons.read more
