Hi, I'm Dan.

So sorry to bore you, but this page is all about me!

If you have got as far as this, there's a good chance you are just double checking I'm normal?!

Your wedding is going to be, without a doubt the best day of your life, so it's super important you know who you are spending that day with! You need to know for sure we get on!

So despite really not liking talking about myself in the slightest, here goes!

Am I right?

Can't say I blame you, I'd do the same!

Behind the camera even when
in front of the camera...

Why I do this job

I’m a wedding photographer in Cornwall and have been a photographer for well over 14 years now. But photographing weddings full time for 10+ years now. It's something I never dreamed I would do as a career, but it's my life now. I absolutely live and breath weddings and I just love photographing the best days of peoples lives. It's so addictive!

A self confessed geek and tech lover I have always been drawn to camera’s having one in my hand nearly all of my spare time.

I love the mix of technical and creative together and as such use it as an outlet to be able to create and capture those fleeting memories forever.

It's a job I never thought I would be able to do, and now I couldn't imagine doing anything else!

Me at work. This photo is a few years old now, I've longer hair and I dare say i'm not that slim anymore, but you get the jist.....

I live in Cornwall with my gorgeous girlfriend Nicole (she features on here every now and then!). We have a nice cosy home in Illogan near Redruth, where we are both from. We live on the edge of some woods and 10 mins walk to the beach! We spend our spare time walking our gorgeous (nutcase) of a rescue pup Meme and exploring Cornwall.

We love to travel and try to explore as many different places as we can! But I’ve lived in Cornwall all my life and couldn’t think of anywhere prettier I’d want to spend more time.


I created Dan Ward Wedding Photography nearly 10 years ago now after pursuing photography as a hobby and finding myself enjoying the special moments that occur when photographing people in love. Wedding photography in Cornwall for me means the chance to capture magic memories that happen in no other kind of day to day activity.

Wedding Photographer in Venice

I shoot weddings in a documentary, reportage style, with a little touch of art thrown in.

I’m one of those people that find themselves much more comfortable behind the camera (I’m sure many people could say this!). So I really do know exactly what it’s like to want nice photos of yourself, but not be aware of them being taken. This was and is the basis for my photography, putting people at ease and getting the best out of every situation and most of the time, you’ll never even know I’ve captured an image!

This is my gorgeous girlfriend and extremely handsome rescue pup Meme (she is a Mini Golden Doodle!). She is a big bundle of energy, love and stubbornness all wrapped up into an extremely cute ball of curly white fur!

So now that you know all about me, let me find out a little about you!
