Two time North Wales Wedding Photographer of the Year, Featured by Kodak Moments 

My name is Ioan and I work with my lovely wife Nicola and our assistant Jess. We are wedding, portrait, pet and boudoir photographer based in North Wales, but working in wedding venues across Cheshire, Manchester and the rest of the UK. We even do weddings abroad with experience in France, Portugal and Canada.


I love taking wedding photos and when people ask me, I always say my specialty is photographing happy people :)

We won awards in both Classical Wedding Photography and Reportage Wedding Photography which we think is a good testament to our flexibility. Simply put as a documentary wedding photographer, we aim to capture the special moments of your wedding day and present it in one of of lovely albums, carefully chosen to ensure that you have a lasting record of your day, not only showing the way it looked, but reminding you how it felt to be there!

We have different packages and options available to suit your needs so why not give us a call on 01978 758501 or email me at ioan@celynnenphotography.co.uk to chat through your day. We can then arrange to meet up and show you our sample albums and talk to you more about your day :)

Looking for a portrait photographer? My portrait photography is contemporary and stylish and can be done in the comfort of your own home or a location of your choice! We often have special mini sessions available for just £25, so keep an eye on our blog and facebook page for details. We additionally offer a bump to baby photography package to ensure you can get a lovely record of the first year with your new little one :)

Our Boudoir Photography has not only provided treasured gifts, but also provide the ultimate pampering or Hen Party experience, complete with professional hair and makeup and totally gorgeous albums.

Within these pages you will see some of our recent weddings and portrait work so have a look around and see why so many people feel Celynnen Photography are the best photographers to capture their special moments!

I am a proud to be a Qualified Professional Photographer with the British Institute of Professional Photographers qualified photographer, an internationally recognised qualifying organisation for photographers. The reason? BIPP photographers not only need to demonstrate consistency and skill, but also need to adhere to a code of conduct which ensures you will get the quality you expect. In April 2016, I was proud to accept the Chair of The BIPP's North West Region, following in the path of other Chairmen who have have held the role since 1918.
