Guildford Wedding photographer Chris Mann | Surrey UK

Experience, expertise, creative flair - and a relaxed, friendly approach

documentary story-telling wedding photographyAs a documentary wedding photographer my aim is to tell the story of your day in an unobtrusive and friendly manner.

I have more than fifteen years’ experience as a wedding photographer and my expertise is at your service.

I’m based just south of Guildford in Surrey, UK, but am happy to travel.
I’ve photographed weddings throughout the UK and in the Caribbean, Europe, USA and Middle East.

Documentary wedding photography

Documentary wedding photography is very much about story-telling. I photograph the key moments of the day but am also constantly looking for small details or individual moments that you will be too busy to notice at the time, but which help to convey the feeling of being there on your wedding day.

My approach is largely “hands-off” – I capture moments without interrupting or controlling the flow of events. That said, I am at your service to create the photographs you need. I am happy to do family group photos, and also create some memorable portraits of just the two of you.

Come and meet me at the Crowne Plaza Wedding Fair on Sunday 28th February
I’ll have a stand at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Wedding Fair in Gerrards Cross on Sunday 28th February, so if you can make it please do pop in and say hello – I’d love to hear about your wedding plans.

Crowne Plaza Hotel Oxford Road, Gerrards Cross HP9 2XE Sunday 29th January 2016

The Wedding Fair is open from 11am-3pm and admission is free. There’s free parking on site.
