We organised our wedding within a week as my father was very ill in hospital with terminal cancer. Ioan kindly agreed to capture the bittersweet day and did so beautifully and with great empathy. Ioan came to our house, the registry office, the hospital chapel and to my father's hospital ward. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was incredibly sensitive given the situation. The photos and slide show are incredible and will be treasured by our whole family forever. I can't thank Ioan enough for capturing these beautiful memories.

Book Celynnen for your wedding!
We are so happy with our wedding photos. Were glad we chose Celynnen for our wedding. Ioan and his assistant were fab on the day and made us laugh a lot. Ioan did a great job getting all the group shots quickly and easily. He is also a discreet photographer, during the ceremony I hardly knew he was there, all the while capturing the most amazing pictures, and capturing every emotion. Celynnen know Portmeirion very well and took us pretty much around the whole village for our couple portraits, which we loved.

Best decision we made for our wedding
We got married 5 years ago and on our recent anniversary pulled out our wedding album, looking through it gives us goosebumps everytime (and happy tears) from such a wonderful day. Every time we go through our album we can't help but congratulate each other on making, what we both feel, is the best decision of our wedding. THE PICTURES ARE JUST SO DAMN AMAZING!!! For us we felt that the only thing you really get to keep as a record of your whole wedding day are your pictures and for this reason we weren't going to compromise on quality. In the last 5 years of looking at our album we know we definitely made the right decision with choosing Celynnen. Ioan is incredible, his pictures are a work of art and his level of professionalism is unrivalled. Ioan is able to direct you perfectly to get the beat shots and his experience shines through, he is a natural with people and the camera. We unreservedly would recommend Celynnen if you want to have timeless and classic pictures that will hold the memories of your wonderful day for the rest of your lives.

Thank you!
Thank you again for the lovely photos and helping the day go smoothly. Wedding photographers can be intrusive but Ioan was organised but discrete, getting everyone in the right place for photos at the right time with minimum fuss and maximum fun. A very happy MOB.

The best wedding photographer EVER!
Ioan and all at Celynnen Photography were extremely professional and made everyone feel totally relaxed. We have been fortunate to know Ioan since he photographed my brothers wedding some years ago and greatly admire his work. Ioan is able to capture all the special moments, including those unseen by most, resulting in very natural images which encapsulate true emotions. We would highly recommend Celynnen to anyone looking for a highly professional service at any special occasion.

What is your most memorable wedding?

I can't tell you! Too crazy!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I was a teenager looking through magazines when I discovered Willy Ronis and Robert Doisneau. I quickly became hooked as I was transported in their world.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I've done weddings where the couple see each other privately before the ceremony. It's produced some beautiful moments. Wish more people did it.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Loved mini lavender plants as wedding favours. I like the idea that in lots of gardens today there is a plant growing and living like the couples marriage! :)

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

On our 10th anniverssary party, we had over 100 guests (ex-couples) turn up. The fact that we still have a lovely relationship with most of our clients touches me.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Personal, documentary, real, happy, fun

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Meet (book!), pre-wedding shoot, wedding, wedding viewing, celebrate! :D

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Don't worry, be happy!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace it! The day is about love & family!

Describe how you got into photography.

A wedding where we had over 6 couples we worked with previously as guests! It was like being surrounded by friends and family! Made it really special!
