Two time North Wales Wedding Photographer of the Year and 2017 North West Wedding Photographer of the Year!

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 would absolutely love to hear more about your wedding! My approach is mainly that of wedding photojournalists, taking relaxed wedding photos that truly tell the story of your wedding day and when people ask me, I always say my specialty is photographing happy people :)


Known mainly for our photojournalism and documentary wedding photography, we named 2017 NORTH WEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR and won awards in both Classical Wedding Photography and Reportage Wedding Photography and 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!

Beyond Photography

When I'm not taking pictures of people or things, I like having fun with our soon to be 2 year old boy. I'm also a softball coach for the Wrexham Softball Club as well as a Police Support Volunteer with Cheshire Police and am a Friend of the Royal Welsh. I also like snowboarding though I don't do it as often as I use to. Love spending time outdoors and I REALLY need to get back running too. I also love genealogy, got a stamp collection and enjoy shooting. A friend of ours once described me as the person with the most hobbies they know, which I thought was pretty cool!

We also like to do our bit by supporting Bliss, Bloodwise, Oxfam GB, Save the Family and sponsor a lovely 9 year old in Bolivia through Compassion UK!

Hope to get to know more about you soon!
