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 documentary wedding photographer based near Cardiff in South Wales, 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 - Bethan + Dave
Yesterday I made the short journey to Llantwit Major to photograph Bethan and Dave's Welsh/Scottish wedding at the stunning Rosedew Farm. It was SUCH a fun day, laid back day, the dancefloor wasn't empty for a second and includes one of my new favourite confetti shots of all

12 Sneak Peeks - Hazel + Matt
Here's 12 previews with you all from Matt and Hazel's wedding at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth, North Wales. They absolutely did things their own way (as you can tell by her awesome non-wedding wedding dress!) and it was such a different & cool venue for a wedding.

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 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.
I cover weddings nationwide and love nothing more than a good ol' road trip!
