Best known for our avant-garde, authentic and cinematic way of filming and storytelling. Most reasons couples book us is because of the way we reflect the powerful love and all emotions perfectly through the films, colours and sounds. A perfect mix between dramatic and romantic elements keep our films interesting and make people watch it from beginning to the very end.
We keep hearing how people are very touched after watching our films without even knowing the couple. You feel like you’re part of the story and you’re emerged into their world. This is our strength and what we aim for in every single wedding film. Without being intrusive on the wedding day itself, we’re able to capture the powerful emotions. Not just from the couple but also amongst the wedding guests, family and friends.
Our way of filming won’t make you feel uncomfortable in front of the camera, most times you won’t even notice we’re there. Since being married ourselves we know what’s most important and what you would like to see back. The moments with your friends, the moment where you interact with your parents, your little nieces and nephews as flower girls and ring bearers, that tear in your sister’s eyes, the proud look of your grandparents, that speech from your best friend. We film at your wedding as if it was our own.
As creative professionals we have a unique artistic eye for filming with attention to details. The combination of these authentic images, carefully chosen music and being able to capture the true emotions, make a unique type of art wedding film that’s super emotional.
We are Pui-Yuk and Remi. Been together for 16 years and married since 2016. We’re best friends and each day discover more about one another. We love traveling. Lived in Japan for one year, that’s where the serious filming began. We are total opposites, Remi is more out-going and loud while PY likes to be in the background. Remi is the gearhead and PY puts the heart into our edits. We’re blessed with two of the most beautiful daughters that keep us on our toes. We’re so lucky to have them in our lives and see them grow up.
We’re the founders of Maru Films and have been filming weddings since 2012. We work with a team of cinematographers and are able to travel the world witnessing the most beautiful days of your lives.
If you’re wondering what Maru means. It’s Japanese (kanji: 丸, hiragana: まる) and literally means circle, perfection, infinite. Pronounced mah-roo.
Our work has been recognised by many in the industry and we have won several awards since. We’ve been featured many times on various blogs and are frequently asked to present on national and international photography and videography conferences. We love to inspire others!
