Bridgend Wedding Photographer
About Your Bridgend Wedding Photographer
Hiya, Im Oliver
A documentary wedding photographer based in Bridgend, covering weddings all across the UK (we love a good road trip!).
A little bit about me
The best description of me is a coffee loving, Greggs connoisseur with an enthusiasm for cars. I am the proud uncle to my brothers dog Trev (tradespeople among us will get the name). Be warned that if you bring your dog to your wedding, I might be found taking selfies with them…
I truly believe I have the best job in the world, the feeling I get every time I see my couples reactions to their photos is indescribable. To top it all off, I get to share this journey with my partner Lauren who assists on the wedding day and helps with all the behind the scenes stuff.
A small town and also the place we call home, Bridgend is a beautiful area for a wedding. Embellished with castles, manor houses, barns and hotels. This amazing town provides so many beautiful scenes for your Bridgend wedding day.
Being an experienced Bridgend Wedding photographer, we have attended many amazing weddings at some truly stunning wedding venues included but not limited to (Court Colman, Cobbles Deli and Kitchen, Bryngarw Country Park to name but a few).
We have created this page to tell you why we think we could be the best Cardiff Wedding Photographer for you.

There is no direct answer for the price of your wedding photographer as all of us vary on what we offer : Digital-Only, Prints, Albums, Timeframes etc. On top of all of that comes our experience and demand, which will of course have an impact on our pricing.
The average price, according to Hitched, for a Cardiff wedding photographers in 2022 which is between £2000-3000 for full day coverage (check what your photographer means by full day though!)
We recommend that before you begin looking at wedding suppliers, you take a moment to set a budget for your wedding and prioritise what are the most important elements to your wedding day. As an established Cardiff Wedding Photographer, we have been to every kind of wedding imaginable and have seen pretty much everything. So to help you in your wedding budgeting, we have created a useful spreadsheet that will help you set everything up.

What does Bridgend wedding photography include?
Bridgend Wedding Photographer Packages
Every wedding photographer is different in what they offer with some offering digital images only, others offering prints and some making albums. All of them have their place, as some wedding couples don’t want the big album and are quite happy with a nice digital gallery. This is the exact reason why we cater for everyone in our thought-out packages, with one designed for couples looking for digital images and other couples wanting a big fancy album. Again, we are quite bias with the albums especially when ours are handcrafted by a family run company renowned for their quality products.
Bridgend Wedding Photographer Coverage
We also only offer full day wedding photography experiences, no time limits and no start or end times. We absolutely love photographing weddings and see no reason why we need to leave early, especially now Oliver can record coronation street to catchup with what happened in the Rovers the day after (Yes 23 and a Corrie addict lol). One of the highlights to any wedding day is when everyone is up on their feet to some 80’s classics and we have so much fun capturing and even breaking some epic dance moves ourselves.
