Relaxed wedding photography for couples looking for an unposed, candid & natural style
Chris Andrews - Documentary Wedding Photographer South Wales & UK
For the couples who don't want to spend all of their wedding day posing for photos.
Hi there! I'm Chris, a documentary wedding photographer based in South Wales but covering all of the UK (I love a good road trip). My photography is candid, informal, and emotion-driven; I observe and capture everything as it naturally unfolds. Getting you to do awkward cheesy poses really isn't my thing.
Fun, feel-good, emotive wedding photography documenting the story of your wedding without intrusion. Nothing posed. Nothing staged.
Weddings should be a celebration... not a photo shoot.
If you take a look at my work you'll notice that there are no staged photographs throughout my work - just real, genuine moments.

Sneak Peek | Beckie + Shane
The penultimate wedding of 2018 was Rebecca and Shane's corker of a wedding at the Oxwich Bay Hotel in the Gower. They really did things their own way including an emotional wedding service conducted by her mum, a bubble machine instead of...

Sneak Peek | Kristel + Ben
Here's a few sneak peeks (and a little bit of Christmas magic) from Kristel and Ben's wedding in December. As an alternative wedding photographer in Swansea I had no idea that they even held weddings at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea Marina!

Wanna see some weddings?
Of course you do!
My style is for the brides and grooms who want to do things their own way...
After all, on our wedding my wife walked down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme song. (Yes, seriously!)
Wedding photography without all the fuss.
So, a little bit about my approach...
When I photograph a wedding my goal is simple:
- To blend in and photograph your wedding as discreetly and unobstrusively as possible.
- To document your wedding as it happens naturally, in a storytelling manner.
- Without interefering, bossing you around or taking over your day.
- Catching the raw emotions, spontaneous moments, and all the fun, laughter and love.
- No constantly dragging you away from your friends and family. No cringey, dated, staged photos. And no stiff shots (except the ones behind the bar!)
I know how you feel...
Speaking as someone who also recently got married... let me tell you that I know exactly how you feel in trying to find a photographer that fits your style, plans and personality.
I'm a big advocate of capturing raw, real emotions; a sucker for classic and timeless black and white images; and a believer in real moments over details.
What areas do I cover?
Even though I'm a natural wedding photographer South Wales I do travel further afield regularly to West Wales, Brecon/Mid Wales, North Wales, Gloucester, Hereford & beyond.
I cover weddings nationwide and love nothing more than a good ol' road trip!
