About

Guy Milnes Photography is a service based in Caerphilly, in South Wales, specialising in weddings and other milestone moments. Owner and lead photographer Guy aims to provide his clients with beautiful reminders of their day that will take them back to that special moment in time. Guy offers bespoke natural wedding and civil partnership photography in London and surrounding areas. All the emotions, fun, and atmosphere of the day will be captured using a mixture of documentary style with the more traditional posed shots.

Services Offered

Guy Milnes Photography offers a range of packages tailored to his clients’ needs. A pre-wedding consultation provides couples with the opportunity to go over timelines and discuss their vision for the day with Guy. As a professional photographer, Guy is able to direct group shots and facilitate portraits but also knows when to step back and simply document the day as it unfolds. The result will be a generous selection of stunning photographs covering as little or as much of your day as you require in a mixture of vibrant colour and striking black and white.

Highly Recommended

Guy was fantastic, he captured us perfectly and made us both feel very at ease. He was extremely flexible, we never felt rushed and nothing was too much trouble. He had many ideas to capture different shots which have resulted in us loving our photos, we can't wait to showcase them.

Stunning photos by Guy Milnes

The photos Guy took of our wedding blew me away. They were just so wonderful. I don’t think there was a bad photo in the 500+ images that we received and there were some absolutely breathtaking shots of the children. He really does have an eye for the perfect photo that truly captures our day. We had a small intimate wedding at Morden Park House and I’m so glad we chose Guy to be our wedding photographer. He is polite, professional and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for capturing our day so beautifully!

Trust Guy with your wedding

We worked with Guy for our micro-wedding in October 2020 at the Chelsea Old Town Hall after finding him listed as a top wedding photographer on the Chelsea Old Town Hall website.

We had researched a few wedding photographers before settling with Guy and this was largely because of his photography style and responsiveness. After some rapid-fire communications on style and cost, we decided to go with him within the day!

As people who are terrible with posed shots, we let him know that we wanted to capture the dynamism of getting married in London rather than focusing on staid group shots of the wedding party. Also, because of COVID-19 restrictions at the Chelsea Old Town Hall, we thought that we would have to forfeit having a wedding photographer in the Town Hall with us, and made our peace with that.

On the day of the wedding, just before the wedding began, a masked photographer waved at us from the entrance of the room! Guy had managed to get into the Town Hall to capture our ceremony! Needless to say we were thrilled! The rest of the shots happened really organically inside the Town Hall and on the street. We didn't even realise he was taking pictures, that's how comfortable we were with him.

We received our photographs a few days ago and they are beautiful. Our families couldn't join us for our wedding because of COVID travel restrictions but looking at the photographs, they could follow along with the story of the day and feel the emotion. We could not have asked for more from a wedding photographer and are so thankful to him.

Amazing photos and service!

So happy we found Guy!
Guy took our wedding photos at Chelsea Old Town Hall on a stormy Saturday afternoon...but had some brill ideas for how to use the weather as a positive! And he was right - it was perfect. Guy managed to capture some really special moments when I didn't even realise he was there!
Amazing service from beginning to end. Thanks Guy

Wedding photographer (The best we have met)

I never normally ever right reviews but I can honestly say Guy was the loveliest, professional and easy-going wedding photographer I've met! He took the most beautiful, mood-capturing, natural moments of everyone at our wedding at Newport Registry office. Guy was also one of the best wedding photographers I've seen with with children -he was very patient as they ran around! Couldn't recommend enough. We also loved how he captured spontaneous moments of the day, and we received our wedding photos just a few days later!

Professional - Accessible - Friendly - Pleasure to work with

We used Guy Milnes photography for our wedding at Chelsea Town Hall. Guy was very friendly and easy to deal with throughout the session. He made an effort to get along with each member of the ceremony without being intrusive.
His photos were absolutely 1st class and we enjoyed working with him.
We would recommend him to anyone!!

Pleasure to work with

As a couple who are not keen to pose in front of the camera Guy captured some amazing pictures of our wedding. He is friendly and approachable and answered all of our questions quickly. He delivered everything to a high standard and we would fully recommend.

Brilliant pictures, lovely Guy!

Guy was the photographer for our wedding in Oxford back in October 2016 and he was everything we hoped he would be.

He was professional throughout the process from our initial email and phone conversation through to the day itself, and was particularly helpful in talking us through and pointing out important things to consider on the day. His communication throughout was top-notch.

His documentary style was exactly what we were looking for and we're so happy with the natural shots he got of the day. We hardly noticed him and we never felt like we needed to do forced poses, he just popped up in the right place at the right time to get the perfect picture.

We would recommend Guy to anyone!

Beautiful documentary photos!

Guy was the photographer at our wedding in August. He beautifully captured all the precious moments of the day from so many different angles. He was calming, professional and friendly in addition he was very good at blending into the background we hardly even noticed he was there. Despite having to work against unpredictable weather, namely wind gusts and sudden bursts of direct sunlight, he was able to capture stunning and natural photos of us which we know must have been hard work (we are the king and queen of pulling weird faces when smiling...). We didn't have to wait long to receive the photos, we expected at least 6 weeks but we got them in less than half that time! Thank you Guy for all your hard work, all the best, Jo and KK xx

Best photographer ever!

Guy was absolutely fantastic from the moment we met him. He captured every wonderful moment of the day and was very discrete and professional, but also a lot of fun! His photographs are beautiful and we couldn't be happier with him. His service is outstanding and we will be recommending him to everyone who we know getting married. He took such beautiful natural photographs and did everything we asked for. He made a stunning photo book and took so many photos, if only we could display them all! The best wedding photographs we have seen (he also did our friends wedding before so we knew they were amazing). Can't recommend highly enough!

Our story through pictures..

Guy is truly an amazing photographer. We chose him based on google reviews, which was a bit of a gamble but once we met with Guy informally and had a look through a sample photobook, we didn't feel the need to look any further.

Guy pretty much blended in with our wedding guests and looking through our photobook and additional pictures we don't have a clue how he managed to be in all places at once.

We have incredible memories which Guy has created for us and our families and we will certainly be using him to capture other important milestones in our lives.

Thanks Guy

Amazing photographs captured perfect day

Found Guy on the internet and immediately loved his style of photography. We wanted someone to capture our day without intruding on the event, and didn't need a photographer to be with us all day. Guy fitted the bill perfectly and apart from a handful of emails prior to the event Guy delivered exactly what we were looking for - an amazing set of photographs that perfectly captures our perfect day. The quality of his work is superb, his style is reportage, and he operates with a minimum of fuss, oh and he is excellent value. The photographs were turned around within a week and the results were stunning. We would highly recommend Guy and his work.

Moves like a ninja, shoots like a sniper

Guy is an absolutely outstanding photographer, and he was one of the highlights of our wedding day! We found him online at short notice (just two weeks before the big day), and from the very start he was totally professional and a pleasure to work with. On the day itself he was hard-working, unobtrusive and considerate, and went above and beyond the call of duty in accommodating last-minute requests. We received the photos from him within three weeks of the big day, and we are so pleased with them. Not only did he take beautiful pictures of us, and well-composed group shots, he managed to take all kinds of fantastic candid photos of our family and friends. Somehow he managed to be everywhere and capture everything. We will treasure many of the photos Guy took for years to come, and we cannot recommend him highly enough. In terms of budget, photo quality, and service he exceeded all our expectations.
