Chris Andrews - Documentary Wedding Photographer South Wales & UK

For the brides and grooms who don't want to spend all of their wedding day standing around for photos.

Wedding photography without all the fuss.

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.

About Me Get Pricing

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} Pencoed House, Cardiff - Suzi + Andrew

As a wedding photographer in Cardiff, you've got to expect rain at a wedding especially in December. But not even the rain could dampen Suzi & Andrew's spirit on their big day. The ceremony took place at Tabor Baptist Church in Llantrisant and the reception at the always stunning Pencoed House, which is the best venues for a South Wales wedding photographer.

Usk Castle Wedding Photography Monmouthshire

Back in August I lucky enough to photograph Nicola and Todd's wedding at the spectacular Usk Castle in Monmouthshire. Another cracking wedding in the glorious South Wales sunshine! Usk Castle has to be one of the most beautiful venues in South Wales and I was so excited to photograph their wedding there back in the summer.

{Sneak Peek} Tros Yr Afon Wedding Photography Anglesey

As a South Wales wedding photographer, this weekend was something different for me. I made the long (but fun) journey all the way to North Wales to photograph Charlotte and Pete's wedding at the incredible Tros yr Afon in Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey.

Chris Andrews Documentary Wedding Photographer Cardiff, South Wales

If you're looking for a photographer who just allows you to get on with the biggest day of your lives, uninterrupted and without dragging you away from your friends and family, I could be the photographer for you!

About Me Get Pricing

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!)

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 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.
