Chester Wedding Photographer


Multi Award winning wedding photographer covering North Wales, Chester, Liverpool, The Wirral, The North West and all UK and destination weddings.


I am an experienced, award winning wedding photographer based in North Wales, bordering Chester, The Wirral and Liverpool.

I established my business in Connahs Quay, Flintshire back in 2012 and have since photographed hundreds of amazing weddings all over North Wales and the North West. My time and experience of being a wedding photographer has led me to capture thousands of peoples happy moments through the years from some of the UK’s most amazing wedding venues.

I am a regular wedding photographer at Soughton Hall in Flintshire, Tower Hill Barns near Wrexham, Tyn Dwr Hall in Llangollen North Wales, The Grosvenor Pulford near Chester and many more stunning wedding venues up and down the country.

My wedding photography packages cover an entire day from bridal prep to first dance to make sure a moment isn’t missed. I’ll be capturing the nerves and excitement from you and your bridal party in the morning, and all the way through your wedding day, photographing lots of natural moments, until you’re dancing the night away. This can be tailored for short notice and low season wedding photography bookings.

My natural approach and style for your wedding photographs is relaxed, and I just want to photograph you and your wedding guests having an awesome time. Head over to my Facebook page where you can see many of my reviews from previous brides and grooms when I have been lucky enough to photograph their weddings.





Hey! It’s me…


I am a bearded, coffee loving Dad of 2 daughters (hence the coffee) and fortunate enough to be an award winning North Wales Wedding Photographer. I am lucky enough to live in, and photograph hundreds of amazing couples, in some of the most beautiful places in and around North Wales, Cheshire and beyond!


When I am not photographing weddings, I love being outdoors! The nerd in me gets a buzz from a 3am alarm to catch the peaceful sunrise over Snowdonia.


As for wedding photography…Well it just happened naturally. I love having a camera in my hand, meeting new people, being outdoors and capturing many happy memories to be treasured forever. Hopefully one day, I’ll be able to photograph a wedding, at sunrise over North Wales! That would tick all the boxes.


Like most of my couples say, I also hate having my photograph taken! I am much happier behind the camera. This dark silhouette image definitely captures my better side.

kind words

Richard is one of the most personable, passionate and friendly photographers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He is patient with brides and grooms and knows how to take the perfect shots! His talent and quality of photographs is impeccable. Couldn’t recommend him enough to capture the perfect day.

Amy Cooper - Soughton Hall Wedding Photography

“A guy at the top of his game, and a seriously lovely bloke too. Rich makes you feel at ease from the moment you meet him, and works tirelessly to get phenomenal results.”

Liam Ashmore - Soughton Hall Wedding Photography

If your looking for a wedding photographer, don’t look further. You’ve found your man!!
Richard is so friendly and professional. He put us at ease, got the shots he needed and we wanted and got about his work taking natural shots.
So looking forward to our photos after seeing a preview that was amazing. Thanks Rich, hopefully this blinking virus will be over soon so you can get back to work!”

Tracey Jaycock - Eriviat Hall Wedding Photography

Rich photographed our wedding last week and we honestly could not imagine a better wedding photographer!
He was so chilled out and easy to be around, and very unobtrusive which was perfect for us. Most of the time you didn’t realise he was there, but when you did he was taking amazing and creative photos – exactly the right balance. Rich really understands that although you want to get some great photos and all of the formal family shots, you also want to spend time with your guests and having fun.
The preview photographs we have seen look amazing and we can’t wait to see the rest!
Rich offers exceptional value for money and we would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a relaxed, yet super talented, wedding photographer.”

Poppy Goldsmith - Doubletree Chester Wedding Photography

I would definitely recommend rich as your wedding photographer , he’s very professional and captures the most amazing pictures iv seen, he instantly makes brides feel at ease in front of the camera.

Cassie McClymont

Absolutely fantastic photographer, made our wedding day so much more special, dealt with everything thrown at him like a total professional and directed us and gave us some great advice, also knew when we needed a break and whisked us away for some ‘photos’ which was much appreciated!! Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without him and we can’t wait for our finished shots ☺️ would VERY highly recommend!! Thank you Rich!

Holly Thomas - Hafod Farm Wedding Photography

Rich photographed our wedding in November 2019, and we couldn’t recommend him enough!!
From the very first email it was very easy and smooth sailing.
To the first time meeting Rich, it felt like we’d know him ages! He made everyone feel comfortable, at times you forgot he was even there he fitted in so well. He felt like a friend and nothing was too much trouble, from helping with ties and button holes in the morning to going above and beyond to get the perfect photo hanging out of windows!
We have the most beautiful photos from our day and our album is stunning.
I recommend Rich to everyone I know getting married and will continue to do so. Truly the greatest!”

Becky Francis - Llyndir Hall Wedding Photography

“Rich is a genuine, kind, amazing photographer that captured our wedding day so perfectly !!

From start to finish he was AMAZING. He made me feel at ease considering I was so nervous – it was like having a friend there taking our pictures!

All of our wedding party commented on how great he was and how he just blended in – you wouldn’t even know he was there snapping away!

Our pictures are beautiful I honestly couldn’t have asked for anyone better. I would choose Rich over and over again.

Thank you for everything!”
