"Planning a wedding from NZ was made even easier by Gareth's reassurance, enthusiasm and professionalism. We were specifically looking for a relaxed, unobtrusive photographer for what was a very personal and relaxed day. When we found his website we knew immediately that he was the man for us - pure relief when he told us he was available! All the comms leading up to our wedding were fantastic and Gareth was accommodating throughout. Getting to meet him for the first time was so easy and on the day itself he slotted in so well and made everyone feel comfortable - Most of the time he went unnoticed.                 
To top it all off, our photos are beautiful and caught all the small and big moments of the day. We knew what to expect with his reportage style, but our expectations were still exceeded. Thank you
GRW :)".

"Throughout the whole day and into the evening Gareth captured a series of beautiful moments for both us and our guests (many of whom also commented on how great they were).
The day was over in what seemed like a flash, but the photos were so incredible and beautiful that even now we cant stop looking at them every day and showing them to everyone who hasn't seen them yet. If anyone else we know is getting married in the south west, we will definitely suggest they consider GRW, not just for the value for money (which we think is excellent) but for professionalism, knowledge, experience, friendliness and most importantly fun that Gareth offers as a photographer, and money cant buy".
- Becca & Georgie 
"Just brilliant! Can't recommend highly enough! what a truly amazing guy. From the Pre Shoot shoot to get to know each other to the amazing sense of humour and relaxed attitude throughout the day. Gareth's pictures were the best I have ever seen from wedding pictures mainly due to the relaxed reportage style that gave such natural pics that we and all the family are over the moon with. 
we were lucky to have the wedding in Soho where Gareth found the most amazing places to take pictures out on the streets from rickshaw taxis to shisha bars!! Truly a man that deserves the wedding awards gold medal!!". 
- Liz & Henry
Right from the start, Gareth made everything so easy.. He has a friendly, affable manner which helps put his clients at ease and helps them to relax into the day. Many of our guests at the wedding commented on the day or have commented since as to what a great guy he was to have around. He's so easy to get along and communicate with that he feels like one of your guests that you've known for years. 
We've had such fun looking back through the pictures as it has enabled us to piece together a day that goes by in a rush. Overall, through a combination of his beautiful pictures, friendly and fun manner and his ability to get a nervous couple to relax, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gareth to anybody".

GRW photography delivered outstanding work and service for us and is a worthy winner of the top award in our eyes. With both of us (husband and bride) working in PR and journalism, we know what it takes to deliver quality images that capture the essence of the day in an organic and beautiful way. Gareth did this for us magnificently and the end results will be cherished forever. He was great at building rapport with guests early on which allowed him to operate in a stealth and non-intrusive manner with us and our guests kept comfortable at all times. He injected humour and character into the shots and brought a lot of great ideas and inspiration to the big day. Importantly, Gareth's journalistic instincts are what sets him head and shoulders above others. His ability to tell our story in his unique documentary style, with such natural images, really made the day for us and will help our wedding memories live on forever.

"Hey Gareth! We wanted to let you know that we received our wedding pics and are completely thrilled with the results. You captured the day perfectly from start to finish - the pictures really tell a story of the day which is exactly what we wanted. Everyone who has seen them agrees that they are absolutely amazing. We could not have chosen a better photographer and loved having you there on the day and meeting for the pre-wedding shoot too. Thank you so much and all the very best for the future". 
- Darren and Melissa xx
"No words can express how happy/pleased/grateful/amazed we are by our wedding photographs we received today.  We both kept asking each other if we were okay but it was just one of us was speechless at the time, no exaggeration at all. You captured the emotion of our wedding day, the love, happiness and celebration shared by everyone there and we can't thank you enough for that. So here's a toast to you and wishing you all the best in every way because you weren't just our wedding photographer -Thank you for sharing our special day".
- Sadie and Jono
"If you're looking for a wedding photographer that captures beautiful, magical moments (without even knowing he's taken them) then Gareth is the one! Gareth effortlessly mixed in with our guests and captured photos that will be treasured forever".
- Lauren & Athos 
"I honestly can't thank GRW Photography enough for all the hard work. I've never met someone who puts so much effort in.
The thousands of photos, the hours and hours editing, documenting our day just perfectly. 
Gareth has got a fantastic eye for detail and nothing is too much trouble.
He picks up on things that perhaps no-ne else notices and that is what sets him apart from everybody".
- Stephanie & Steff 
"Gareth made our day so fun, we had an elopement wedding and he became apart of our very small wedding party pretty much. 
Instantly felt like We had known him forever like an old friend. 
If you were to look at our wedding pictures you can see we spent the whole day laughing, joking and having a blast, that was in part to do with Gareth making the photography side of it such fun. 
Our pictures were out of this world and as we had a wedding party of just 8 including our kids and us we really wanted people to be able to feel like they experienced our day through our photographs. Gareth made this happen and we were elated within the results of just a few hours photography. He went that extra mile to make sure we got the most beautiful shots. That made our day unforgettable". 
- Ceri and Ben 
Gareth was our photographer at our wedding back in August 2022, we couldn't of asked for a better guy! He slotted into our wedding day like a friend we had known for years, we had a lot of fun, there was no pressure for constant posey photos but so many natural moments were captured which we will treasure forever! Gareth sent over the edited images really quickly considering there were nearly 1000 images, we were so impressed with this. Almost a year on and we still love looking at our wedding photos, can't thank Gareth enough for his fantastic work! Anyone looking for a professional but chilled photographer with a good sense of humour then Gareth is your guy, you won't be disappointed!!

Gareth photographed our wedding in October at Ocean Kave. He spent the day with us from prep to party. The photographs he produced were truly amazing and we will treasure them forever. We couldn’t believe it he captured so much of our special day, the love, the magic. Every tear, every dance and every laugh. Gareth was amazing to work with and to have as part of our day, by the end of the day we really felt he was one of the family. Thank you so much Gareth.
- Lee & Lizzie
My daughter got married May 5th at Ocean Kave and Gareth took the photos. Gareth was supberb nothing was too much trouble. He spent hours with Hannah & Marc to get stunning and beautiful photos. Very friendly and approachable. Gareth took them with the boys to the beach even lying in the sand to take a perfect picture simply beautiful photography. Later he was off with them again for sunset photos and even got them to the cliff top to take more. If your looking for 1st class service and wonderful photos Gareths your man 100%. Thankyou for beautful stunning photos and a perfect day.

Gareth has recently produced a set of extraordinary wedding images from a wedding during July 2019 at Quantock Lakes and I am completely blown away with how Gareth captured the couples personalities. The love the couple have for each other is clear to see and the emotion of the day is truly captured also. Gareth has been wonderful to work with and we hope to have him back again soon. We can all highly recommend GRW Photography. I have so many favourite images and have uploaded one. Thank you so much.

What can I say Gareth! Its been one crazy year for the wedding industry! But wow what a weekend in a haze of craziness, booked Gareth for the day but with Covid ended up having two weddings over two days and Gareth was more than happy to cover the whole weekend at short notice I think it was only a week before we knew it was all going ahead! Amazing photos and slide shows and memories that will last a life time. Love the documentary style without the continued holding poses. Thank you Gareth.

Gareth is a lovely gentleman who’s talent truly speaks for itself. He put me and my wife completely at ease from the very start when we had our engagement shoot. Neither my wife or I are naturally very comfortable in front of a camera so Gareth’s relaxed but efficient manner was a relief. Gareth’s photography style is emotional, creative and personal - it was so refreshing to find a person who gives as much credit to you and your partner as they do to your chosen surroundings, every photo tells a storey and picks up on everyone’s personalities.

His documentary style on photography is truly stunning, he is an artist and a genius at work. Every magical moment is captured and you wouldn’t even know that he’s there.. Not only is he a pleasure to have around but when you receive your photos you are blown away by his meticulous editing style and attention to detail. The range of photographs he presented to us were so varied that choosing the best ones was difficult!!

Gareth was always on time, willing to help and listened carefully to our needs and our worries. We feel honoured to have a collection of his photographs of the moments which will last a lifetime and we are now enjoying reliving the best day of our lives flicking through our wedding album.

In all, a fabulously memorable experience with Gareth and one we will both cherish. Look No further Guys. Book this funny Welshman.
- Mark & Caroline Graham 
What can I say about Gareth? Well, he is the best photographer we could have wished for. He took so many beautiful photos of our wedding that we still can't decide which ones to frame as there are just so many that we love!

From the pre-shoot until the end of our wedding day, Gareth made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable that it was a pleasure having him share such a special day with us and we couldn't have wished for better photos.

If you are in need of a photographer then Gareth is most definitely your man!
- Gemma Pegg
We are so, so pleased we chose Gareth to do our wedding photography - we cannot recommend him highly enough.

Gareth's laid back approach put us at ease straight away. Neither of us feel comfortable in front of a camera, but Gareth helped us to get over that and a lot of the time we forgot he was even there! He kindly met up with us before the wedding to have an informal chat, which was great to be able to get to know him and his style of photography, as well as a pre-shoot which was lots of fun!! By the time the wedding came, we felt very confident that Gareth would capture the day beautifully - which he did!!

The photographs really capture the spirit of the day, and we love how each one tells a story, as well as the fact they are all very relaxed and informal - we aren't ones for posed photographs and therefore Gareths style is just perfect! The shots of the two of us are 'pictures', not just photographs - they capture the beautiful surroundings as well as us as a couple. We're so happy that we have all of these memories to look back on for years to come!

Thank you Gareth for all of your hard work, we'll certainly keep in touch! :-)
