 Wedding photography from venues in the Welsh capital


Here are some examples of wedding photography from Cardiff wedding venues. The capital city of Wales is the eleventh largest in the United Kingdom and home to a plethora of historic and modern wedding venues. All tastes can be accompanied from the Cardiff Castle dating from Roman times to the Edwardian era of Cardiff City Hall and National Museum. All the way to the state of the art Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and Cardiff Bay’s St David’s Hotel. So if you are currently planning your Cardiff wedding, and looking for a photographer who can capture your day with natural and emotive imagery, please do not hesitate to get in touch. My approach to wedding photography is friendly yet unobtrusive, designed to let you enjoy your day whilst I capture the essence with an understated reportage aesthetic.

“We’ve enjoyed looking at all the photos tonight, we’ve laughed and cried. Thank you for capturing all the special moments, they are so beautiful. We wouldn’t have chosen anyone else, so happy with them”
