Guildford Surrey Wedding & Portrait photographer Chris Mann
Storytelling photography and a relaxed, friendly approach
As a professional Surrey wedding photographer and portrait photographer for more than fifteen years, I bring a wealth of expertise and experience to your wedding or family photo shoot. My aim is always to make you feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Wedding clients often comment on my unobtrusive style, and portrait clients appreciate my unfussy and friendly approach.
I am based just south of Guildford in Surrey. I photograph not only Surrey weddings but also in Hampshire, Sussex, London and throughout the UK.
I am also happy to travel if you are getting married overseas – I have photographed destination weddings in the Caribbean, USA, Mexico, Europe and the Middle East.

Emma and Mark’s wedding was nice and local for me – just up the road in Guildford. I first met them at the Surrey Wedding Show at the Mandolay Hotel last February, and that’s where they got ready and the reception was held.read more
If I had to pick one word to sum up Natasha and Terry’s wedding I think it would be “joy”. Not just the couple but everybody present seemed to be having a really good time throughout the day. This despite the best efforts of the British climate to put a dampener on things!read more
Surrey garden wedding in Gomshall | Jessica & Ben I love shooting outdoor weddings, but there's always the risk of rain (in this country at least). Fortunately the sun shone brightly for Jessica and Ben's wedding in a beautiful Surrey garden near Gomshall - although...read more
I will confess to being a little nervous about shooting this wedding, as both Paul and Layla are very into photography, and were looking for something out of the ordinary. But I needn’t have worried – Paul and Layla were relaxed, fun and very easy to work with!read more
Regular readers of my blog will probably remember I had the pleasure of photographing Julie & Tom’s wedding in islington last September. So what are they doing getting married again in France? The idea was to have a very relaxed summertime celebration with warmer weather, and so that people who weren’t able to come to their London wedding could attend.read more
Careena and Adrian were married in Hong Kong but wanted to have a wedding photo shoot amid the glories of the English countryside – so that’s what we did!
We decided on a multi-location shoot in the Surrey Hills area, starting at Newlands Corner and continuing at Silent Pool and in the very pretty village of Shere…read more
A hot one! That’s probably how best to describe Yveta and Adam’s Clock Barn Hall wedding – temperatures reached almost 30C in the afternoon as the guests enjoyed the sunshine on the lawn at Clock Barn Hall near Godalming.
I started the day with Yveta and her bridesmaids for bridal preparations at the Hog’s Back Hotel Farnham…read more
Over the years I’ve photographed weddings with hundreds of guests. I’ve also photographed weddings where it’s been just the bride and groom, the minister, the wedding coordinator, and me – and I’ve signed the register as a witness…read more
It’s always a pleasure to photograph weddings at Artington House in Guildford. The registrars and staff there are always very friendly and helpful. Artington House is only an eight-minute drive from me so no stressful journeys are involved!read more
Thank you very much for the amazing photographs.
We were so lucky the sun made an appearance that afternoon and you captured it beautifully for us.
Thank you once again for the lifetime of beautiful memories.Marlena & Eduardo
Thank you so much for being our photographer and for making such a perfect record of our day.
You seem to have managed to be everywhere at once; to document all the important moments. We are especially pleased with the romantic shots and enjoyed having some quiet time for just us. The slideshow is very popular with family and friends and a great summary of the day. Thank you again.Matthew & Claire
Chris is reliable, professional and was great to work with. We were both very apprehensive about having our photos taken, but Chris made the experience very relaxed and comfortable. During our engagement shoot his friendly manner instantly put us at ease and after a few photos we were completely relaxed and confident about the photos for our wedding day.
We are really pleased with our wedding photos and have enjoyed showing them to friends and family. Many of our wedding guests made positive comments about Chris during and after the wedding and we would highly recommend him.Liz & Jonathan
