Natural and candid wedding photography in a relaxed, fun & unposed style

Chris Andrews - Alternative Wedding Photographer South Wales & UK

Real moments for the couples who don't want to be posing all day for photos.

Hi there! I'm Chris, a South Wales wedding photographer based near Cardiff, but covering all of the UK (I love a good road trip). My style of wedding photography is fun, candid, informal, and emotion-driven; I go with the flow and 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.

12 Sneak Peeks // Samantha + Brett
Intimate wedding at Hunter Lodges, Celtic Manor

I was so honoured yesterday to document the lovely and very intimate wedding of Samantha and Brett at Hunter Lodges on the grounds of the Celtic Manor in Newport. A close family and friends affair, the smallest wedding I have done so far but one of my absolute favourites without question. More intimate weddings like these please!

So excited to share these first images from Becky and Liam's wedding yesterday at Canada Lake and Lodge near Cardiff. It may have been a rainy day wedding but that didn't stop them at all - an emotional ceremony was followed by a chilled day and absolute cracker of a dancefloor party as you'll see!

About Me Get Pricing

Follow Me on social media:

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!)

Read about my style and approach

I know how you feel...

Speaking as someone who also recently got married... let me just say 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.
