The Ultimate Christmas Experience with Santa and the family Claus.

Important Notice

Steel Works Santa and Adele Morris Photography are both contributing a percentage of all bookings to support the activities of Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and GIST Cancer UK over this year’s Festive period.


Adele Morris Photography and Steel Works Santa are combining their multi award winning talents to bring you a unique and unforgettable Christmas experience. 


Your visit to see the one and only Steel Work Santa will be tailored for your family, stress-free and no waiting in lines! 


The last couple of years have been very difficult for all of us and while things are still going to be somewhat different again this Festive Season, we hope that the ‘Ultimate Christmas Experience’ will bring the festive family magic back for you all. 

Santa is always very, very busy checking the nice list (and checking it twice) while preparing for the Festive season. His Chief Elf, Candy Cane, has told me that he can leave the North Pole workshop for a special visit to Porthcawl for only 3 days, so remember bookings the Christmas photoshoot will be limited and will sell out fast.


We will be opening bookings at 7pm on Monday the 30th of August unless you have joined the VIP group as those members will get priority access 24 hours earlier. To join the VIP group, sign up here 

The response and interest already received has been amazing! Santa and the Family Claus have been telling me that they can’t wait to meet you, your families and most importantly all your wonderful children.

Saturday the 9th of October (LIMITED AVAILABILITY)

Early booking allows Adele to hand edit your beautiful Christmas photos and have them delivered to you in time for you to share on the run up to the festivities before Christmas day. It also allows plenty of time to place any orders of photos and products, have them packaged ready to give as gifts to loved ones. 

How do I book?

VIP members get early access at 7pm on Sunday the 29th of August, via Adele’s website. To gain access to the VIP group, sign up here

 Otherwise booking will be open to the public at the later date of 7pm on Monday the 30th of August. 


Do you have any special requirements?

We are already having requests in for longer sessions for children who might find 20 minutes a little overwhelming, we want to make the experience as magical as possible and we will do our very best to accommodate your requests. If you feel you need to chat with us about tweaking your session to suit your needs. 


What about Newborn Santa sessions? 

We have you covered, from Santa, Mrs Claus or Candy Cane here to celebrate the arrival of your new baby’s and their first Christmas. For more information, please get in touch for a bespoke session here


Can we have our session in Welsh? 

Adele is a first language Welsh speaker and encourages bilingualism. She is more than happy to do the session through the medium of Welsh. Santa and the Claus family don’t speak a lot of Welsh in the North Pole, but Adele is slowly teaching them Christmas phrases and greetings. 

Wishing you the best of luck to secure your session and don’t forget to set your alarm for the launch, we sadly can’t keep reserve spaces due to the limited number we have available.
