Review of Gareth Newstead Photography by jackie melly

We are so please we picked Gareth as our wedding photographer. When we first approached him, we loved his ‘can do’ attitude, his communication was great, he got back to us very quickly with any questions we had. A couple of weeks before our wedding, we met up at the venue to discuss the day. Gareth is a very warm, friendly guy, who clearly knows his stuff. We shared ideas, and we were able to say what we did and didn’t want.
On the day itself Gareth was great, he seemed to blend into the background and was not in the least bit intrusive. Thankfully he was on the ball with organising shots that we had forgotten we had requested (caught up in the moment).
When the pictures arrived, they were much more than we could have hoped for. Not sure how he managed it, but we all looked amazing. The natural shots of our guests were great, pictures of people taking selfies, people deep in conversation unaware, and the artistic ones of the tables, the decorations etc were fab, just what we wanted.
Gareth is a gem, a lovely guy who is great at what he does. Our one regret is that we didn’t book him for the whole day, due to limited finances. If we could turn back the clock on that one, we would.
If you are looking for someone who is friendly, organised and talented, Gareth is your man!

We found Gareth via his website with a simple "wedding photographer Burton on Trent" search. We instantly loved how he had captured other weddings and his style really match the kind of photos we wanted for our big day.
Gareth came to see us at our home and from the conversation i knew that he was in tune with our needs and didn't try to impose his ideas on us. He was very respectful to what we wanted but was ready to guide us on areas we weren't overly sure off. It's amazing, so many decisions for a wedding but absolutely zero experience to go on. That is why it was so important we found a photographer we could trust.
A second meeting in the pub allowed us to get more ideas across and Gareth's discovery work is excellent. he leaves no stone unturned to ensure everything flows.
We also had a 2nd photographer on the day, Chris, he and Gareth are amazing team. So in tune with one another, always on hand capturing those unique smiles and laughs.
Gareth was with the Bridal party at our house and he was just part of the team. His pictures were amazing, so natural and capturing every emotion. Chris joined the Groom squad at our hotel and he was not only on the ball picture wise he is also a whiz with pocket squares, ties and general wedding attire.
On arrival at the venue this is where the guys seemed to disappear, blend in so naturally with our guests that we barely noticed them. We have photos from our ceremony and we genuinely can;t remember Gareth being in our eye line. This takes great skill and slight of foot!! Truly amazing.
After the food and speeches Gareth and Chris came in to their own. Such creativity and the ideas flowed for photos but they only took them if we were happy to do them and had time. They didn't insist on anything but the final results suggest they should be more forceful. We have had our photos described as sensational, stunning, epic, different class. All from our guests.
Take a look at his gallery and our photos are on there. They speak for themselves. Gareth is super talented but he cares about his job and the final product is he producing for you.
From start to finish he was superb, as was Chris. What a team

We also cherish the photo USB gift box that is provided and we also took the video package which again, adds something special to see the movement of our guests, laughter and dancing.

We can never say enough thank yous to Gareth but we can always look at our stunning photos and know we made the perfect choice for our Wedding.

Gareth was recommended to us by our wedding venue, and as soon as we saw the other weddings he'd captured, we knew we wanted him to capture our day too.
We arranged to meet Gareth at our house where he went through examples of his work and we chatted about what was important to us on our big day. He was so friendly and easy to get along with.
On the wedding day, Gareth arrived on time, introduced himself to the bridal party, and started taking photos straight away. He made our family and friends feel at ease all day, and the mix of natural and more formal shots was exactly how we wanted to remember our wedding day.
We arranged a photo booth through Gareth for our evening reception, which was fantastic and went down very well with our guests. Charlotte, the second photographer we had was brilliant, and captured some funny photo booth moments.
We also purchased the video package from Gareth. We are so glad we did, it was wonderfully put together, and brought back so many happy memories of the special day. We have watched it so many times!
We were so happy and blown away with the finished photos and video. So many people have commented that they are some of the best wedding photos they have ever seen. We can't recommend Gareth highly enough.
Thank you so much for capturing our special day so brilliantly.

We cannot recommend this wonderful photographer enough! Seriously what a guy! We had an engagement shoot to break the ice and have some really cute pics from that. We looooove our wedding photos but even more than that it was lovely to spend time with Gareth on our wedding day having fun making photos that we will adore forever. Friends and family thought Gareth was an old friend because he is just so natural in his approach. He is not intrusive and will achieve specific looks if you want them. My brother will be booking you for his wedding 2019 Gareth!! XX

I can safely say that Gareth might just be the best wedding photographer out there! He's very easy to get on with, has an extremely positive and professional approach and somehow manages to hit the nail on the head in getting exactly what you want time in and time out. We opted for an engagement shoot aswell as our wedding and I would certainly recommend this, it gave us an opportunity to get used to having our photos taken and to feel really at ease with the whole thing. Suffice to say that Gareth made this such an easy and hassle free task for us in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself, when not everything was proving so easy!

Claire and I simply cannot put it in words how brilliantly Gareth has captured all of the key moments from our wedding. We have sat and smiled and laughed our way through them all and family and friends who have looked through our photos have all commented at how brilliant they are.

I simply cannot recommend Gareth enough to everyone! You are placing your trust in someone to capture the most important day of your life and I can think of no better person to do this than Gareth!

From the new Mr and Mrs Stewart! x

From the moment we met Gareth we knew we wanted him to capture our wedding day!

From when he arrived at my mum's house he was brilliant, we were all rushing around getting ready we didn't notice he was there capturing myself and the 'bride squad' enjoying the morning of the wedding.

When we had all gathered for the wedding ceremony, once again Gareth was well blended in taking natural shots and not in your face so you couldn't tell there was even a photographer there.

As the day went on it was like Gareth was a friend you had invited to the wedding and just happened to bring his really good camera with him and really good at taking pictures, Often having natural conversations with friends and family whilst capturing the day.

Friends and family also took to Gareth very quickly and to this day still comment on what a great guy Gareth is and how brilliant he is at his job.

We really couldn't compliment Gareth enough for the photos and the way he went about his job on our special day. An Amazing photographer and just as importantly a brilliant guy and it was truly a pleasure to have Gareth there capturing our wedding day.

Look no further. Get this guy booked at the first opportunity. Awesome!

The reason we decided to ask Gareth to be our photographer was our friends recommended him to us and we were really impressed by their wedding photos. Despite coming with high recommendations already, Gareth managed to exceed our expectations in every way. We were not particularly organised on the run up to the wedding but Gareth was very patient and friendly at all times- thank you! On the day, Gareth seemed to have the perfect mix of being easy going and adaptable yet enthusiastic and encouraging about different shots and great at quietly persuading guests to gather together when they a bit more interested in the bar! So many guests mentioned to us how brilliant they thought our photographer was. Neither myself or my husband feel particularly comfortable in front of the camera but Gareth just made the experience really fun and relaxing- by the end of the day he just felt like another one of our guests! He also stayed for extra time without us asking which was lovely of him as our day had over run so he still got plenty of dancing and firework shots. When we received the final photos this week we were blown away- he seemed to capture so many happy moments and he used the setting and weather to its full potential. We cannot recommend Gareth enough. Thank you so much!

Gareth was recommended to us by Alison Evans Bridal. We met another photographer who offered us "mates rates" at half the cost of Gareth but we just didn't gel.
Gareth came to visit us at home and we instantly clicked and my now husband made it very clear he didn't like having his photo taken and was anti wedding photography.
A tricky challenge for Gareth!
We then had an engagement shoot at Tutbury castle in May; the month before the wedding which went surprisingly well with some great natural shots.
Fast forward a month then to our wedding day..... and Gareth was quite simply amazing. We barely noticed he was with us 10 hours and he took photos of our day from start to finish capturing every detail and emotion at several locations and the end result is just incredible. Exactly what we wanted and more.
Guests commented on the day what a great photographer Gareth was and now they have seen his work and his photos we have had nothing but amazing feedback.
We cannot recommend Gareth enough. A guy who clearly is passionate about his work which shows in the quality.
Thank you Gareth for creating the most special memories for us; and the show reel makes me cry every time. Oh and the sunset photos and firemans lift!!! Amazing!!
Thank you, Thank you

We felt very comfortable with Gareth photographing our wedding day, he was very friendly & professional. Before the actual day I sent him wedding photos I liked often involving fields, as there was nothing growing in the field by our venue he drove us up the road where he had spotted a field of rapeseed and did a photoshoot with us there, he had us climbing up hay bales in our wedding attire, he got some great photos & it was fun! He just went with the flow of the day taking us away for photos when ever we had the chance so we didn't miss out on any part of our wedding day. We even got given a slideshow for free which wasn't expected and such a lovely surprise given how hard he had already worked! We are glad we chose Gareth as our wedding photographer & would 100% recommend him!

My husband and I were given a family photo shoot for Christmas.......
It was fabulous!!
Gareth came to our house to do the photos, the end result was beautiful, it was soooooo hard to choose which ones to have because they were all so wonderful.
Gareth made us all feel at ease and relaxed (and I hate having my picture taken normaly)
He had a fantastic approach and a great rapport with the kids.
Thank you!
Cannot recommend enough!!

We arranged a family photoshoot as a present for a special birthday for my mum and Gareth Newstead made the whole experience a pleasure from start to finish.

Gareth was really helpful and flexible when we were arranging the photoshoot. We were able to choose our own location as we wanted outdoor photos and somewhere we often went to as a family which makes the pictures even more special.

The actual photo session was just like a nice afternoon out really, Gareth put everyone at ease straightaway we just had natural photos as we were walking around the park laughing and hanging out - at the end Gareth even played football with the kids!

We all loved the photos (we got an online link to view them really quickly) and there was no rush to choose what we wanted - a difficult task as there was so many we liked. The different options to buy had everything from affordable options to really special finishes so all the family could get what they wanted.

I really wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gareth Newstead - a friendly, professional and brilliant photographer.

After trawling through the internet and attending a number of wedding fairs we were so fortunate to find Gareth. Our initial meeting was very relaxed and Gareth's positive, easy going but professional attitude was immediately apparent. We had a number of questions and even more 'wedding unknowns' at that point, but he answered all our queries and provided us with really useful information and tips making us both feel better about our lack of organisation. As we were not used to being in front of the camera and were definitely not catalogue models we also took the option of a pre-wedding shoot. This was really helpful with Gareth giving us excellent tips and techniques to make us both feel at ease and to help get the best shots. He also put up with our crazy dog during the shoot getting some great photographs.

On the wedding day Gareth and his second photographer were both excellent, getting amazing images capturing all of our special day. They were very accommodating to our exacting needs, did not take us away from the action too much and mixed in really well with our families and all our guests. In fact our families thought Gareth was amazing, saying how he made them feel so relaxed and at ease in front of the camera. Definitely not an easy task!!

On receipt of our images we could not believe how well they captured not only the formal parts of our wedding day but also the emotions and reactions of us both and our guests throughout the day. A day that we will never forget. We cannot thank Gareth enough.

We chose Gareth after finding his website online. Rikki and I wanted a photographer to capture a mix of traditional and contemporary photographs of our wedding day.

We met him for a drink and he showed us his portfolio. He was so friendly and easy to talk to, we knew Gareth was the photographer for us!

We did an engagement shoot as we were a bit apprehensive. He made us feel at ease from the beginning. Nothing was too much trouble, especially when getting that key shot. I recall him scrambling through stinging nettles in his shorts to get the right angle!

For the run up to the wedding, he was always easy to get hold of, replying an hour or so later, or later that day. He called me the evening before the wedding to run through and clarify timings and details of the day.

On the wedding day, he fitted in like one of the wedding party, often being mistaken for a guest! He had a great sense of humour, balanced with a very professional attitude. His passion for photography shines through.

It rained on our day but he had lovely ideas of how to capture us inside so we didn't feel like we missed out.

He has a natural eye for detail. He captures those natural shots, those moments when you think no-one is looking. Gareth is there for every special moment.

He is an all round professional, fun and nice guy, we are so pleased he was able to photograph our special day.

Many thanks, Rachael and Rikki x x

After trawling through websites of numerous photographers, and having a very fussy wife when it comes to photograph composition, I gave up and let her make the decision. When she showed me Gareth's website and his photographs, I could instantly see the quality of his photos were far superior to any I had looked at, and we arranged to meet with him to view his portfolio. Gareth suggested a meeting place halfway between our locations, and was flexible with times etc.

As soon as we were greeted with his smily face and fantastic personality, we knew we had found our wedding photographer. Gareth spent time asking us questions about the type of photography we wanted (very natural and documentary in style - no big sky eh Gareth?!), and was really interested in getting to know us as a couple. He was happy to answer any questions that we had and was very professional.

Gareth arrived early, introduced himself to the bridal party and began taking photographs as soon as he arrived, capturing photos of bridal preparations and little details like bridal jewellery, shoes etc - he even helped attach buttonholes! During our wedding day, Gareth did at fantastic job at making both myself and my wife feel relaxed (we both are not fans of having our photos taken!), however with a little direction from him, we actually enjoyed the experience. Gareth introduced himself to as many guests as he could, also making them feel at ease.

Gareth blended into the background so well, it almost felt like there wasn't a photographer there, which we really liked as we have been to weddings in the past where the photographer gets in the way all the time!! Many of our guests also commented on how professional, friendly and how he just "fitted into the day so well". For myself and my wife, it felt like we had invited a close friend to our wedding, rather than a photographer, he even busted a few moves on the dance floor, and even gave man hugs!

We are over the moon with our wedding photos, and our experience overall with Gareth. He is a fantastic person and a fantastic photographer!! We have already recommended him to our recently engaged friends and would urge anyone looking at this page, not to hesitate in booking him for your wedding... you will not be disappointed!!!

Thank you so much Gareth,

Mr & Mrs Proctor :-) xxx

Having spent the evening watching the preview video of our wedding photos (many times!) I felt I had to write a few words to show how thrilled we are. The photos captured the happiness I remember feeling that day so well, and it is so lovely to also be able to see some of the moments that I missed. It was a pleasure to have Gareth (and Chris) there with us on the day – we felt totally at ease and a lot of the time didn’t even notice we were having our photos taken. The detailed notes Gareth took before the big day meant that all the moments that were important to us were captured, plus many more besides that we would never have thought of.

Gareth, thank you again for going above and beyond - from the first time we met you (flat car batteries and all!) to the emails full of our awkward requests over the last couple of days it really has been wonderful to work with you, and we just can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures now!

Check out Gareth Newstead photography. Very recently did our wedding day and he was in every aspect and sense of the word, a true professional. Quite simply the most passionate, enthusiastic, talented guy we could have ever hoped to share our day with. The guy was even lying down in dirt and fields to capture his vision. We don't consider him our photographer, he's our good friend who we hope to see again soon! Thank you Gareth, you absolutely smashed it and we were utterly privileged to spend our day with you and Hana. You made everything so exciting and easy. We love you, dude! ‪#‎PhotographyNinja‬ ‪#‎NowYouSeeHimNowYouDont‬ ‪#‎GiftedSwine‬ ‪#‎BookHimPronto‬

After searching for a photographer which seemed like forever I finally fell in love with gareths images
Hubby to be refused to pay the amount we were quoted and I couldn't have what I wanted
I entered a competition Gareth hosted on his page and WON!!!
We absolutely adore our images!! We didnt even notice Gareth was around even tho he took hundreds of images!
I cannot recommend Gareth enough and even hubby says if he knew the images were going to be so good he would have said yes from the start! Thanks so much Gareth for our beautiful images x

Gareth did the photography for our recent wedding and we were delighted with the results. We had a specific brief (nothing too mushy, plenty of relaxed ones of people looking happy) and he really listened and delivered exactly what we asked for. On the day he made us both feel really relaxed and the end results are fab. I can definitely recommend him for anyone who needs a wedding photographer.

Review of Gareth Newstead Photography by Michael King

Gareth is a truly fantastic photographer. We wanted a more 'documentary' style (apart from the mandatory posed pictures) and this posed no problem at all.

The engagement shoot before the wedding really put us at ease, I highly recommend anyone thinking of using Gareth takes this up. We got to discuss what we did and didn't want and we could get used to being the subjects of a photographer (something I'm certainly not used to).

On the day we had a lot of guests asking if he was a friend or family and this in itself is testament to what a top bloke Gareth is. I can safely say our day would of been worse had he not been there.

Can not thank him enough. If you check him out and chose someone else instead, trust me, it'll be your loss.

Gareth did an amazing job for our Wedding in July 2015. He was really professional and also friendly, kind and helpful and he couldn't do enough for us. He listened to our ideas and had loads of his own. He took fantastic photos which really captured the love and happiness of our special day. Thank you very much Gareth!

Gareth photographed our very special wedding day in December. Before the big day we met Gareth a couple of times at the venue to get ideas and did a engagement shoot to settle us into working with each other. Gareth was really personable and calming, he listened carefully to what we wanted and also came up with some great ideas for us too!
On the day Gareth was fantastic - we hardly even noticed him in the crowd and he got some great candid shots which was exactly what we were after. Gareth produced some absolutely stunning photos of the day, from shots of the venue which really captured the theme of the day through to some stunning photos of us. Gareth even added snow on to some of our photographs which looked amazing!!
We wouldn't hesitate to use Gareth again and have already recommended him to people looking for a photographer.

Thank you Gareth!

Could not recommend Gareth highly enough. The photos he took of my little boy's christening are simply stunning - a fantastic mix of classic black and white and colour, formal and informal. He captured the special feel of the day perfectly and some of the pictures are actually in my all time favourites (and I have a lot even though he's only 12months old!). Gareth is a true professional with an obvious talent and passion for photography and has a way of just fitting in with the day and making everyone feel at ease. Faultless! Thank you Gareth

Gareth photographed our day 21st July 2018. If our preview photo is anything to go by he’s fantastic! He was polite, friendly, professional but mostly fun to have as a photographer on our Wedding Day. He made us feel so very relaxed. I’m so excited to see the rest of our photos. Thank you again Gareth. With love, Catherine & Glen xxxxxxxxx

We can't recommend Gareth highly enough. He is just the perfect wedding photographer-his photos are of the highest quality,and yet is he still so approachable as a person. It was important to me to have a photographer who I felt completely comfortable from the moment he arrived on the morning,which I (& my bridesmaids) immediately did with Gareth. So many people have said how much they love the natural documentary style of the photos. We love the video highlights that we added to our package too-memories to treasure forever. Thank you so much x

Choosing your wedding photographer for me is one of the most important details of your big day, choosing the person with whom you trust will capture all of the beautiful and amazing parts of your wedding day so can relive them for years and years to come....for this I am so glad that I choose Gareth! He is not only absolutely AMAZING at what he does but he is so easy to get on with, has a great sense of humor, is so attentive and chatty with all of the guests and really cannot do enough for you throughout the day! I have seen a couple of shots early and I cannot contain my excitement of receiving the final shots when they arrive! Thank you so so much Gareth, I cannot rate you highly enough, there are no words to describe just absolutely thrilled I am that we chose Gareth Newstead Photography!

Selecting a wedding photographer was one of our most important decisions and Gareth was recommended to us. After seeing his portfolio and chatting to him on the phone, we knew we had the right guy. We were keen that the photos captured the day naturally but with a small mix of formal shots and Gareth delivered brilliantly. He even took my wedding dress for its own shoot! He put everyone at ease while taking the formal shots - no small task when some hate having their photo taken! We couldn't be happier with our photos. They are extremely high quality with a great mix of couple portraits and the natural flow of the day. It's not just us saying this - we've had so much great feedback from family and friends! Thanks so much for giving us the perfect shots from our day.

I'm not sure it's possible to put in to words how pleased we were to have chosen Gareth to photograph our 'proper Yorkshire wedding'. He just completely understood the feel we were going for and, even though we've only seen a handful of photos so far, he has managed to completely capture the essence of the day. The autumnal colours, the relaxed boho vibe and the gorgeous views that we hoped for are now in beautiful photographs for us to treasure forever.

When getting ready in the morning even though he was snapping away, Gareth made me as the bride and all my bridesmaids feel so relaxed and was making us laugh throughout the day. He listened to what we wanted in our initial consultation and then he just did it! He even brought his wellies to come down to the river with us and get some gorgeous shots.

Though already true for us as we knew Gareth before booking him, it really was like spending a day with your awesome friend! This made it all the more special and personal for us which only added to the enjoyment of our day. Gareth clearly loves his job and this shines through in the photos he's taken and we are beyond excited to view the rest of them.

Thank you Gareth from the bottom of our hearts for being a talented photographer, wonderful friend and pure joy to have with us to celebrate our wedding day. Here's to you! Lots of love, The Hornsbys xxx

I can not recommend Gareth enough, we are so happy with our photos � Gareth was fantastic from the moment we met him, he was easy to get on with and for a couple who hate having our photos taken he really put us at ease on the day, it was like having an extra friend there. Our photos are perfect and really captured the essence of the day, thank you so much Gareth xx

Review of Gareth Newstead Photography by Sue Parr

We hadn't heard of Newstead Photography until we discussed our upcoming wedding day with my sister and niece and it was them who suggested Gareth, they said he was brilliant and gave me his number, I contacted him and made an appointment to meet; from the first meeting both Kev and I knew he was the guy we wanted to capture our special day.
He arrived on our wedding day prompt and professional, he fully understood our requirements and blended in with the hustle and bustle of the day taking many pictures of family and friends as well as natural photo's which we didn't know was happening until we got the photo's, his eye for detail and capturing the perfect natural photo is an art and Gareth has got it!
Even though Gareth was there as a professional person he has a natural ability to blend in with the crowd, he is so easy to get on with and talk too & as the day progressed we all classed him a friend who was invited to our wedding as guest rather than a photographer.
His friendly approach aides his ability to organise people and make them feel at ease when having their photo taken which is a gift in itself.
There is not much more I can say other than "what an absolute gent and brilliant photographer" who captured our perfect day in the most amazing way. The quality is just fantastic and our wedding album is just sublime, it captures who we are are perfectly, we will treasure this for the rest of our lives.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Gareth to family and friends for any occasion, his photo's just speak for themselves!
Thank you Gareth

We cannot recommend this wonderful photographer enough! Seriously what a guy! We had an engagement shoot to break the ice and have some really cute pics from that. We looooove our wedding photos but even more than that it was lovely to spend time with Gareth on our wedding day having fun making photos that we will adore forever. Friends and family thought Gareth was an old friend because he is just so natural in his approach. He is not intrusive and will achieve specific looks if you want them. My brother will be booking you for his wedding 2019 Gareth!! XX

I can safely say that Gareth might just be the best wedding photographer out there! He's very easy to get on with, has an extremely positive and professional approach and somehow manages to hit the nail on the head in getting exactly what you want time in and time out. We opted for an engagement shoot aswell as our wedding and I would certainly recommend this, it gave us an opportunity to get used to having our photos taken and to feel really at ease with the whole thing. Suffice to say that Gareth made this such an easy and hassle free task for us in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself, when not everything was proving so easy!

Claire and I simply cannot put it in words how brilliantly Gareth has captured all of the key moments from our wedding. We have sat and smiled and laughed our way through them all and family and friends who have looked through our photos have all commented at how brilliant they are.

I simply cannot recommend Gareth enough to everyone! You are placing your trust in someone to capture the most important day of your life and I can think of no better person to do this than Gareth!

From the new Mr and Mrs Stewart! x

Gareth was recommended to us by our wedding venue, and as soon as we saw the other weddings he'd captured, we knew we wanted him to capture our day too.
We arranged to meet Gareth at our house where he went through examples of his work and we chatted about what was important to us on our big day. He was so friendly and easy to get along with.

On the wedding day, Gareth arrived on time, introduced himself to the bridal party, and started taking photos straight away. He made our family and friends feel at ease all day, and the mix of natural and more formal shots was exactly how we wanted to remember our wedding day.
We arranged a photo booth through Gareth for our evening reception, which was fantastic and went down very well with our guests. Charlotte, the second photographer we had was brilliant, and captured some funny photo booth moments.

We also purchased the video package from Gareth. We are so glad we did, it was wonderfully put together, and brought back so many happy memories of the special day. We have watched it so many times!

We were so happy and blown away with the finished photos and video. So many people have commented that they are some of the best wedding photos they have ever seen. We can't recommend Gareth highly enough.

Thank you so much for capturing our special day so brilliantly.

Peter & Steph

I found Gareth through loving some photography he had done for a friend. He did our bump to baby photoshoot and at that time when he instantly made us feel at ease, I knew I wanted him for our wedding. On Wednesday he did just the same again. Gareth is just so wonderful at what he does, I truly didn't even notice he was there. He asked the highlights I wanted to capture, I'm sure he got them and more!! I just can't wait to see them!!! Thank you so much Gareth, I will be highly recommending you to anyone who will listen!

I don’t think I can put into words how amazing you are!! I truly felt like a friend was photographing my wedding day. Gareth, you put me and Josh at ease from day one and all the guests loved you. Thank you so much for capturing our special day. You and Charlotte made it so enjoyable and at some times I didn’t even know you were there. Thank you isn’t enough for how much we appreciate you and your amazing eye for photography �

We are so please we picked Gareth as our wedding photographer. When we first approached him, we loved his ‘can do’ attitude, his communication was great, he got back to us very quickly with any questions we had. A couple of weeks before our wedding, we met up at the venue to discuss the day. Gareth is a very warm, friendly guy, who clearly knows his stuff. We shared ideas, and we were able to say what we did and didn’t want.
On the day itself Gareth was great, he seemed to blend into the background and was not in the least bit intrusive. Thankfully he was on the ball with organising shots that we had forgotten we had requested (caught up in the moment).
When the pictures arrived, they were much more than we could have hoped for. Not sure how he managed it, but we all looked amazing. The natural shots of our guests were great, pictures of people taking selfies, people deep in conversation unaware, and the artistic ones of the tables, the decorations etc were fab, just what we wanted.
Gareth is a gem, a lovely guy who is great at what he does. Our one regret is that we didn’t book him for the whole day, due to limited finances. If we could turn back the clock on that one, we would.
If you are looking for someone who is friendly, organised and talented, Gareth is your man!
Thank you so much for capturing our day Gareth
Jackie and Clint xx

We booked Gareth as our wedding photographer after a recommendation.
He started at our house and got some great shots of the ladies getting ready and stayed with us until late late in the evening.
We had asked him to take natural photos of us and our guests enjoying themselves throughout the day which he did perfectly.
The photos he took of us in the rain are absolutely brilliant.
He went above and beyond our expectations and captured the whole day perfectly.
We’d both like to thank you for helping to make our day extra special.

After a recommendation we booked Gareth for our bump to baby shoot, since we had never done anything like that before we were a bit nervous but were soon put to ease by his professionalism and how friendly he was. After 3 shoots and some truly amazing photos we decided that we just had to book him for our wedding. On the day he everywhere but nowhere and captured again some amazing photos that we will look back on years to come. Everyone said how friendly Gareth was and we saw how well he interacted with our guests. 100% would recommend to anyone looking for either a wedding photographer or someone to capture the moments you want to look back on.

We met Gareth when he photographed a friend's wedding back in 2016. After seeing their photos, we loved his photography style and knew we just had to hire Gareth for our own wedding. From the word go, Gareth was so helpful and responsive, he made sure he understood exactly what we wanted from our big day. On the day of the wedding, Gareth was so fantastic to work with. Extremely professional but also so friendly and up for a laugh with us at the same time, it really was the perfect balance. We had so much fun and all of our friends and family said how great he was too! The final photos are outstanding, everything we could have asked for and more! He captured the day perfectly and has given us something so special to look back on our wedding day. We simply cannot thank you enough, Gareth. Would 100% recommend!
