South Wales Wedding Photography
Amir and Neelam a lovely couple from Cardiff asked me to cover their Wedding at the Orangery Margam Park in Port Talbot. I decided to go and scout the place myself few days before the wedding. I was amazed by the Scenery of the venue and it has a Castle too. Yes, you heard it right A CASTLE. I was really excited about this shoot as I love the venue and wanted to do the best I could.
On the Big Day, Me as a Photographer and a Videographer were ready for Bride and Groom by the Castle 2 hours before the guests arrived at the Orangery. Castle and the Couple were the main objectives of the shoot we did after taking Photos and Videos we made our way to the Orangery where guests were waiting for us. We had loads of Photos and shot great Video clips too by this point.
If you're looking for a fairytale wedding, The Orangery is the best Venue in Wales. I would highly recommend this place for any Couple who want a spacious Hall with the great management team and Photos and Videos from this Venue look amazing too.
Here are some of the Photos from the day. Enjoy!
Samar Ali from Grangetown decided to do a Beauty shoot with us at our studio in Cardiff. She arrived with a friend who was very supportive and helpful during our shoot. Took us 15 mins to do a set of different poses in first outfit and another 15 minutes in the second outfit. We showed her final Photographs on the big screen that got her so excited that she asked for all unedited photos straight away.
We sent her all the photos straight to her mobile through our Mobile App. She left the studio happy but we thought we can make these photographs little bit better by using photoshop, even though she didn't ask for it. I believe as photographers it's our job to do the justice with every photograph we take and do them as good as they can be. So, I took three of my favourite Photographs and edited them in Photoshop. Took me around 20 minutes to edit and send them to Samar. Received a text straight away that she didn't expect them to be that good. Sometimes, clients don't know how better a photograph can be but we photographers do.
Below are some of the Photographs from the session. First three photos are edited using photoshop.
I have always wondered why people spend so much time and effort and money to dress up as their favourite movie or game characters. I've seen people spending months on their fantasy outfits and thought WHY? So yesterday I decided to go to my first Comic-Con held in Motorpoint Arena Cardiff to understand the phenomena. I went with a sceptical view but came back a believer, to say the least.
Some people admit they got involved in dressing up out of a love of costume design. However, others confessed to taking part for some attention for themselves. The idea that I can not only be Batman for a day but also act and feel like him in the real world (apart from driving Bat Mobile of course), and everyone around me would treat me such is a very satisfying experience.
I met some really amazing people who were from all walks of life and came together for the love of cosplay. As so many like-minded gathers in the same venue, it's very common that they find love for each other through such events.
All and all, I loved the atmosphere, the vibe and the positive energy at the venue and in the town centre. I would highly recommend to anyone wondering, to go there at least once and see for yourself.
Here are some Photographs I took outside Motorpoint Arena Cardiff.
Being a wedding photographer is not just about taking photos. I will help you to make sure you and your partner look at your best in each and every photograph. Most of us don’t have much experience in posing, but believe it or not, it’s actually not that difficult! Wedding photography has really changed over the last few years. Now with all the modern equipment and a lot of creativity, it has been taken to a whole new level. I love finding true emotions and I believe they are the key photographs. Real interactions and natural moments are what every wedding photographer surrey should be looking for. They only last for a split second and it feels absolutely amazing to make them last forever! Those are the photos that tell the real story.
Such a lovely couple Hina and Rahman, we had so much fun shooting this wedding at County Hall Cardiff. And as always I presented them with more photos than they expected. That's because I set up my lights in every corner of the hall to make sure every shot I take is a Hit as I can't afford to miss any moment.

The focus of my approach has always been about capturing moments as they naturally happen, without direction or influence. Wedding are filled with a wide range of emotions and interactions throughout the day that provide an endless amount of moments to capture. Not just the big moments, but also the in-between moments, the moments that go unnoticed by most, but can often be the most powerful. One of the main values of capturing these moments in a photo, is that when you look back in years to come, they refresh your memories of the day and you are reminded of exactly how it felt to be there. Even those that couldn’t be present, like the next generation, can get a feel for what it was like.
A very simple and effective pre-wedding ceremony of Hina and Rahman in Heath, Cardiff was a perfect example of families coming together to celebrate love rather than showing off their fortune.
