Wedding Photography in Cardiff – For Cosmopolitan Marriages
For an engaged couple wishing for a cosmopolitan feeling for their marriage, Wales’ capital city, Cardiff, is one of the best destinations.
The city landscape is marked by numerous stunning buildings that are beautiful both inside and out – ideal for your wedding photography. A great example of this is Cardiff’s popular civil marriage venue, the City Hall, which houses the Register Office (see photo above and link at the top).
The natural green scenery makes it one of the most beautiful cities in the UK. Nature-loving couples can select the city of Cardiff as the backdrop to their special day and enjoy outdoor ceremonies and beautiful green landscapes in their finished photographs. Couples wishing for summer nuptials will love the relaxed atmosphere and peaceful nature of the city.
The City of Cardiff: The Perfect Location for Wedding Photography
Cardiff is lucky enough to benefit from strong transport links into the city from all over. The Welsh capital city is now just 2 hours from London Paddington via Bristol by train on the Great Western Railway service, and there is also a direct train to Manchester.
The M4 also runs from London to Swansea and passes just north of the city, making access for your wedding guests so easy. In addition, there are three park and ride sites around the city with good bus services.
Short and Full Day Weddings in the Welsh Capital
Whether you require a venue for a full day’s wedding or just for an hour for your ceremony, there is the perfect venue for you. Many venues will only do the civil marriage ceremony, and from there, you can go elsewhere for a sit-down meal with close family and friends.
Cardiff has numerous quality restaurants, pubs and hotels just suitable for however you wish to celebrate your marriage.
I love to photograph short wedding days in Cardiff, and my coverage can start at just 1 hour. 2 hours is more usual to get some before and after shots and the early reception. I have a whole page about reduced hours wedding coverage.

The city is also home to many beautiful old chapels and churches that serve as lovely photographic locations.
