Hensol Castle Wedding Photographer

Recent Testimonials

These are some recent reviews of my Cardiff wedding photographer service. I ask the couples I photograph to write reviews independently and at their own home in their own time. It is great to get reviews and I ask all my clients to do this when they have some spare time and in their own home so that they are completely honest. I love what I do and getting great feedback is one of the best parts of the job if not the best. Here are a few things my clients had said about me and my photography.

”We chose Chris to photograph our wedding in July, it was definitely one of the best decisions we made! Chris is so friendly and relaxed, he blended right into our wedding and it was just like having one of our friends there! We felt very strongly about not being torn away from our guests for a long time to have photos taken so Chris did a few formal shots which didn’t take long at all! All of the pictures are amazing and captured perfectly! We contemplated hiring a videographer and chose against it, the photos perfectly captured the atmosphere of the day so a videographer really wasn’t necessary.”

Wayne and Lauren Williams

”Very pleased with the end results from Chris being our wedding photographer. We could not have selected a better guy for the job.

It was a very big wedding that I had with around 350 guests. The registry, Hindu wedding and the evening reception party was all on the same day! As you can imagine there was lots going on, and a number of significant moments to be captured in which Chris did a fantastic job at doing. The day goes so quick that you are unable to absorb everything, thankfully to Chris I have an incredible wedding album to look back and reflect on my special day. With 350 guests it is hard to organise people and especially to take pictures of the close family members. However Chris managed to do this with familiarising himself with the family in the morning and throughout the day.

Chris is a really easy guy to work with and will try his best to accommodate you even if what you are asking for is nearly impossible he will make it possible!

Very good at communicating by phone and email which always helps! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy reliable photographer.”

Nina and Robbie Saini

”As soon as we decided to set a date for our wedding, I knew there were 2 things I wanted to spend a little bit extra for the budget. One was my wedding dress and the other the photographer.

It was easy (ish) to find the dress but the photographer bit was more challenging. There were so many on the Internet and we went to a few wedding fares, saw a few adverts in wedding magazines it was hard to chose. Some weren’t available, others were way too expensive, then all of a sudden I came across Chris’ website. I loved the concept of documentation photography and story telling rather than standing in unnatural poses where everyone has aching jaws after smiling so long all day! From the photographs to reading reviews, I had everything crossed that Chris would say yes to this bride to be!

Thankfully he did, we had a few email conversations and then finally met him for our pre wedding shoot. On a personal level, Chris is one of those people you meet who you instantly get on with and feel like you’ve know them for a lifetime. He’s full of energy, enthusiastic and passionate about his job, yet on your wedding day you hardly notice him there.

From a professional perspective, he’s just that, very professional. The photo shots of our day are amazing. They were all presented in a lovely album which told the story of our wedding from my Dads house right up until the last dance. Throughout the pages you can feel the emotion and the best bit of it all was that Chris shows you what he thinks should go in there and then you have your choice. There’s no hard sell for other products available but he’s in the know if you do want something else like canvasses.

I would highly recommend Chris and am looking forward to hiring him again for some family shots. If you are reading this with a view to hiring him I would urge you to get in touch he’s fab. ”

Matthew and Adele Taylor

”Chris photographed our wedding in the summer and I would Highly recommend Chris as your wedding photographer the story he captured was amazing. Took on board all the things we liked and it showed in the photos including the theme. Amazing communication and quick responses to any queries.
Test shoot before the day is highly recommended as it helps build confidence with the camera and getting used to how Chris works and Chris made us feel very comfortable.
He really does go above and beyond from lying in grass to hanging over balconies to capture perfect pictures. I am so happy with every photo from the big day couldn’t have asked for anymore.”

Nieema Hassan

”Chris photographed our wedding earlier this year and was extremely professional and inventive with his photography. He listened to what we wanted and added oodles of his own inspiration and experience. He was not afraid to go the extra distance for the perfect shot, from balancing on gate posts to lying on the floor of the forest, he really pulled out all the stops! The result was a collection of fantastic photographs which are exceptional and totally unique! Thank you so much Chris for all your hard work and creative insight on the day- we are so glad we selected you as our wedding photographer!!”
