Chris Giles is a full-time and high-end professional wedding photographer who has been shooting weddings all over the UK and overseas for over 10 years.
He only shoots weddings and this main focus leads him to be titled one of the Top Ten Wedding Photographers covering London (The Evening Standard), One of the Top Three Wedding Photographers in the UK (Bridebook) and One of The Worlds Best Wedding Photographers (Smashing the Glass).
Chris wins these awards not just because of technical ability, but because of the person who he is and how he integrates seamlessly into every wedding.
Chris understands that there isn't any specific style that fits a wedding so shoots a fusion of all types. This means he can move from a relaxed, informal, storytelling approach to styles more relevant for shooting family groupings and for presenting the details of your day.
Chris is also excellent in low light and for covering the dancefloor later in the day. He also understands that getting great photos of you both shouldn't involve being an hour away from your guests.
The level of cover offered ranges between half-day, full-day or until very late and images are usually supplied digitally with wedding albums and parent books available to purchase as requested. (More information can be found on his main website).
The minimum number of images edited and delivered is 500 but there is no limit and there will always be a higher number given.
Overseas weddings are charged at the standard UK cover rate + £500

What can I say but WOW. Wow, wow, wow WOW!! And that’s before I even get to those wonderful pictures! Let me gush a little first. Bear with as it might get cringe worthy!Sent on 15/07/2015
It’s really hard to put into words our ‘Chris Giles Photography’ experience as it's been hard to find the words to express the love and gratitude we feel because he's not just a man with a camera. He's been a wedding guru, a friend, a giver of advice and a really, another member of the family for the last two years. With every phone call, meeting, email or Facebook post his passion for photography, his clients, and weddings in general is obvious.
As soon as Chris came to our little flat we knew he was our photographer. Put simply, he just got US. Our approach, our style and our thinking. I was so excited after that first meeting that I cancelled other appointments and dismissed all other quotes.
On the day he was pure magic. I don’t know how he managed to be everywhere but at the same time be such a calming and reassuring presence. Everyone has commented that he was more than a photographer and more like a guest, even running after the unruly children. That is a quality money cannot buy!
Now – onto the photo’s themselves. Perfection. Each and every one captures the emotion, the fun and overall wonder of the day and are a beautiful snapshot of the whole experience. I knew after the engagement shoot they would be brilliant, but they were more than we could ever have hoped for.
Thank you Chris. Thank you for being everything we wanted and much, much MUCH more.
All our love
Clare & Simon – the Ambroses

Chris made us feel so relaxed and at ease. He made all the group pictures such fun (when they can become a bit of a drag!) that all our guests loved him!Sent on 15/07/2015
Not only did he capture great memories for us but we felt that he was our own PA on the day as he were always on hand with what was going to happen next.
We're so thankful for having him as part of our day!
