Full Description
Based in Caerphilly near Cardiff, I provide natural and observational wedding photography services. I use a discrete, reportage style to beautifully document the complete story of your wedding day. This can be displayed artistically in a stunning photo book to revisit and cherish for years to come. I have photographed wedding as special events for around ten years, and nothing gives me a greater sense of satisfaction than when a bride contacts me gushing about having seen her images for the first time. I know how important the wedding photographs are to the couple and it is very important for me to 'get it right'. I do this by meetings beforehand and a questionnaire with all the important details for the couple to fill in. By the time of the day, I have a clear idea in my head of what the couple require and how to achieve the best results. I also cover gay weddings and civil partnerships and provide engagement photography. I do portrait work and have recently started to provide an online dating profile photography service which is proving popular. I take weddings and other assignments in Cardiff and South Wales, Bristol, London and the South East. Anywhere else is considered also, so please do get in touch.

His Work is Stunning...
Guy was our wedding photographer at our wedding in London. From the start when we were liaising with Guy, he was very helpful, straightforward and friendly. On our wedding day, he was very organised and clearly listened to everything we had discussed. Quite a few people commented on what a lovely guy he is. We just received our photos and have been blown away by how amazing they are. Guy captured moments so well and it makes you relive the special day all over again. His work is stunning and we couldn't recommend him enough-thank you again Guy.

Did a Fantastic Job...
Guy Milnes was the photographer at our wedding at Pencoed House in Cardiff. He did a fantastic job and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. The pictures were stunning - Guy has a really good eye for capturing our friends and family having a good time as well as those other special moments of our wedding day. He worked in the background, observing and waiting for the right shots, but also gently steered us and everybody else in the right direction when it was necessary. Our band started late in the evening, but Guy stayed longer than agreed to capture us partying, which we really appreciated. We would like to recommend him in the best possible terms.

Calming, Unobtrusive Presence on Our Day...
Guy photographed our wedding at Winchester House in Putney. On account of us living in Sydney, we had to research photographers online and in doing so we stumbled across Guy… we feel very lucky that we did! He was so patient when communicating with us via email and Skype in the build up and then met us for coffee once we landed in London, completely putting us at ease. He was such a calming, unobtrusive presence on our day and he completely captured the laid-back, fun-filled atmosphere of our wedding in his shots. We will treasure Guy's photographs for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much, Guy!

Exactly What We Wanted
We could not be happier with Guy's work - he was so nice; he listened to all our wishes but made good suggestions based on his knowledge and experience; he was so lovely interacting with everyone on the day, yet was unobtrusive even though our party consisted only of eleven people; and his photos are beautiful, great quality and exactly what we wanted - full of life and reflecting our personalities perfectly. We feel very lucky to have found Guy - he played a big part in making our wedding day truly special.

Beautiful Pictures to Keep Forever...
Guy photographed our wedding for us in May and we couldn't be more happy with his work. We found him online and were impressed with his photos so we called him. His response time was super speedy and gave us all the information we needed, which made us feel comfortable with him from the start. The moments he captured on camera, of our special day, were absolutely perfect. He made sure he knew what we wanted and subtly snapped away. We now have beautiful pictures to keep forever. Thank you Guy!
