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.

Get in touch to find out how I can help you record some special memories.

Kingswood Golf Club Surrey wedding | Natasha + Terry

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!

Turks & Caicos beach wedding | Layla & Paul

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!

Mayenne France destination wedding | Julie + Tom part deux

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.

Clock Barn Hall wedding photography Godalming | Yveta + Adam

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…

Weybridge wedding photography | Venita & Gareth

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…

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

We think your pictures are superb. In fact this is a good juncture to tell you that we were really delighted we picked you as our photographer, not only are the pictures great but on the day we felt you were totally unobtrusive and very sensitive to our wishes. We have also had numerous other comments along these lines from our guests. Felicity & Mike

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.
