Micro Wedding Cardiff – Stefan & Amber

⭐️ A Cardiff Micro Wedding ⭐️

Imagine a Micro Wedding in Wales, in December 🤔

. Minimal guests
. Masks
. No Reception
. Alcohol ban

Paints quite the picture doesn’t it. However, despite all of the above, this wedding was so so amazing!! Granted I’m somewhat biased in that I was just really happy to be behind the camera again as well as the added bonus of getting a break from homeschooling (weddings drag on mum, you know how it is) but still, it was amazing.

Amber & Stef were originally due to get married in December but like most couples, had postponed due to Covid.

In the end, they didn’t want to wait and decided to scrap all their original plans and just crack on at Cardiff City Hall.

I genuinely applaud these two for going ahead as I think the alcohol ban / not being able to toast the marriage would have sent me over the edge 🤣

Anyway, they cracked on, Amber even changed her dress to be more in keeping with the new style of the wedding and we had an amazing few hours searching out quirky backdrops in Cardiff City Centre. I say we, the enjoyment of searching out the backdrops was probably all me but yeah, the moral of the story is, micro weddings are pretty cool ☺️

On the fence about whether to have a Micro Wedding? I’ve photographed 8 Micro or elopement Weddings thus far and they are genuinely VERY COOL! I’ve always strongly championed non-traditional weddings weddings and this video here is just a snapshot into just how awesome steering away from tradition can be.

If you’re currently weighing up whether to wait or whether to just crack on with a Micro Wedding, here are three positives to consider if you decide to go ahead . . .

1. You’ll be married!

The endless wait for married life to begin will get over and you’ll actually be married. I can honestly say that all of the couples I photographed in 2020 were happy ones! The size of the wedding took nothing away from the feeling of excitement once the vows had been said.


You don’t have to spend a fortune on a three course meal for hundreds of people. Instead, you’re free to use your budget on all the things you couldn’t afford when you were buying dinner for everyone else.

3. You can ditch the formality

Whether it’s changing your dress to suit a more casual affair or feeling relieved that you don’t have to do the 50 group portraits your mum was insisting on, there’s definitely an upside in being able to just please yourselves!
