Canada Lodge and Lake Wedding Photographer
About your Canada Lodge Wedding Photographer
Hiya! I’m Oliver,
A documentary Canada Lodge and Lake wedding photographer covering weddings all across the UK (we love a good road trip!).
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.
Canada Lodge and Lake is a unique wedding venue situated near Cardiff. This venue is a joy to photograph at with so many amazing weddings already captured there.
