Wedding blog | Cardiff Wedding Photographer

Being primarily a Cardiff wedding photographer, we have seen almost every scenario and had every question you can possibly think of. If you have taken a look into our style  you will know that we are far more than just your wedding photographer. We like to provide our clients with useful content and support during their wedding planning journey.

Common questions we get asked as a Cardiff Wedding Photographer. Couples often come to us with very similar questions… “What if it rains on our wedding day?”, “Should we feed our wedding photographer?”, “any wedding entertainment ideas?”, “Should we have a wedding videographer?”, “Should we have a wedding stylist?”, “how long do we have to wait for our wedding photos?” and so many more.

That is why we have spent hours creating these wedding blog posts. From the very beginning of your wedding journey with the Ultimate wedding checklist to posing tips to get those natural yet jaw dropping wedding photos.

Want to plan your wedding day with no stone left un-turned? then grab a cuppa and take a look at our amazing wedding blog posts! You can even leave a review of your read in the comments section.
