Guildford Surrey wedding photographer Chris Mann has more than ten years experience photographing weddings for clients in Surrey, Sussex, London, Hampshire, Kent, Somerset, Cheshire, and throughout the UK as well as in Europe, the Caribbean, Middle East, USA and Mexico.
He is noted for his relaxed and friendly approach to wedding photography, aiming always to put the couple and their guests at their ease. He shoots mainly in a reportage style based on unobtrusively documenting the day while being responsive to clients' wishes.
Chris Mann regularly shoots at many of Surrey's leading wedding venues including Botley's Mansion, Hartsfield Manor, Wotton House, Northbrook Park, Loseley Park, Ghyll Manor, Ramster Hall, Gate Street Barn, Cain Manor, Ridge Farm, and Selsdon Park.
Many couples like to have a pre-wedding photo session with their photographer, and this is something that Chris encourages. There are many locations around Guildford and in Surrey that can be used for this, including Winkworth Arboretum, Godalming riverside and Guildford Castle.
Chris has also worked at Sussex and Hampshire venues such as The Walled Garden at Cowdray, The Aviator Hotel Farnborough, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and Knepp Castle Estate, as well as Gosfield Hall in Essex, Castle Coombe Manor House in Wiltshire, and Thornton Manor in Cheshire.
He is also a recommended wedding photographer at Brympton D'Evercy in Somerset, and has photographed weddings at many prestigious London wedding venues including the Landmark Hotel Marylebone, Institute of Directors Pall Mall, One Great George Street, RIBA, Mandarin Oriental Knightsbridge, the Orangery Holland Park, Caledonian Club, and Fulham Palace.

In 2007 his skills as a photographer were recognised by three Awards of Excellence in the 2007 WPPI International Print Competition at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention in Las Vegas.
