“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. He’s a very talented photographer and we would recommend him highly to anyone with any special occasion he will always capture that special moment so you will never forget it.”

“We had the pleasure of having Gareth and Joe for our wedding on the 21st. They arrived promptly in the morning and immediately joined in with the preparations, Gareth with the bride getting ready and Joe joined the groom for bacon and eggs. They immediately fitted in and kept the atmosphere very relaxed and easy going, which is exactly what we wanted. The ceremony was excellently captured with Gareth at the front with Jim and Joe in the entrance looking in. There were fantastic pictures of both bride and groom facing towards the camera and it definitely captured the excitement on both our faces seeing each other for the first time that day. They had the idea of getting the group photo done immediately too before our guests could wander off! Throughout the day they mingled in with the guests and took candid shots, which again was exactly what we wanted from the day. When it came to the evening and the dancing they stayed until well past the time we were expecting them to stay until because they were having so much fun! They managed to get some unique photos of our guests fully enjoying the evening. Gareth and Joe were always happy to stop and chat with our family too and we had great conversation with them for the duration of the day. The follow up communication regarding the photos after the wedding was always prompt and the photos we received were amazing and we will treasure them for ever. They were perfect and really contributed to our day.”

“Well where to start….. When my now wife first started looking for a photographer I had no interest in who she picked as I trusted her to make the right choice and if I’m totally honest I almost fell over when she told me the cost involved but now all is said and done I can wholeheartedly say that the service Gareth provides is exceptionally great value (you should put your prices up) why you ask….. Well right from the very start on our ‘pre-shoot’ he goes above and beyond to understand you as a couple and make you feel comfortable, which for someone that isn’t a great fan of being in front of the camera really set me at ease. You can tell he truly loves his job and for me that means a lot. I can’t thank Gareth enough for the images he captured on our special day, he is a master of his craft and a great guy, we are forever grateful. Highly recommended!! A tip for anyone thinking of booking Gareth make sure you get him a room for the night so it gives him chance to capture those random moments later on, 100% worth it!!”

“Gareth photographed our wedding at Polhawn Fort back in September. He was a pleasure to have around on the day putting everyone at ease. The photos were absolutely amazing and we are still chuffed looking at them months later! They’re better than we ever imagined and we are so glad we chose Gareth and can’t thank him enough for producing some stunning photos that we’ll cherish forever. Can’t recommend him highly enough! Such a talented photographer and all round lovely chap! Thanks Gareth.”

“Love Gareth’s work so much, I fell in love with his amazing eye for a ‘different’ picture. His work with black and white is insane. We met Gareth first when we did a pre-shoot which was amazing he makes me feel so comfortable and during the wedding fitted in like a friend. I would HIGHLY recommend paying extra couple quid for a hotel room, Gareth stayed on till late getting some great dance-floor snaps. Thanks for being great and giving us photos I will treasure forever.”

“We used Gareth for our wedding in South Devon and we couldn’t recommend him highly enough. The photos he took captured the essence of our day and are so edgy and unique which is just what we wanted. Thank you Gareth for the amazing memories.”

“Gareth was brilliant, very professional. We loved the style of his work, he was responsive leading up to the wedding and great on the day. We loved that we didn’t have to stand for ages for posed photos and he got all the pictures we wanted without even knowing he was taking them. His style and type of photography was the one we loved after looking at loads of different photographers”

“Gareth was amazing from the first time we contacted him. He was fast to reply to all our questions and happy to provide example photos for specific situations. As part of the package, we not only had a pre-shoot but our favourite photo was printed and provided to our guests to sign on the day. You can tell how passionate Gareth is about his work, he truly cares and wants everything to be perfect for the couple. His attention to detail and skills are outstanding. We preferred his style of natural, story telling photography to the standard, scripted wedding photographs that seemed to be the norm amongst the industry. The outcome is outstanding and captured our day perfectly. The photos really tell the story of our day, Gareth seems to have been everywhere, always at the right moment. He is also very much loved in the industry, everyone at our wedding venue got excited when we told them Gareth was our photographer.”

“We love the unique style of Gareth’s photography – it’s so contemporary and unique. The online portal he provides is exceptional, as you can easily select favourites and customise the albums before sharing the link with people – so they only see the photos you want them to. Gareth was a pleasure to have with us on the day and managed to document every stage of the wedding. The only problem we will have now is choosing which photos to have on our walls! We were shown a portfolio of Gareth’s work on our first visit to Ocean Kave and knew immediately that he was the photographer we wanted. We both hate posing for photos and don’t really like the traditional posed wedding photos (although had to have a few to keep the parents happy!). His style was more about capturing the moment, the spectacular setting, and the atmosphere between us and the guests, with some stunning landscape shots. I’d highly recommend him to couples looking for something a bit different and special about their wedding photos.”

“We were thrilled that Gareth was available to capture our day. His personable, relaxed but professional manner meant we felt totally at ease. It has been a joy to receive our photographs and all our friends and family have commented on how beautiful and different each shot is. So many moments have been captured that could have so easily been missed on the day. We could not have wished for anything more and will cherish looking back at these memories for many years to come. Distinctive reportage style – contemporary and out of the ordinary. We didn’t want to spend our wedding day posing for shots and Gareth was able to capture precious moments as they happened rather than anything being staged.”

“Being a bride who dislikes being photographed, Gareth had a hard job from the outset but quickly put me at ease. He was discrete throughout the day but always around and then turned on the fun factor later on, capturing the party atmosphere of the evening. We were presented with hundreds of beautiful, uncontrived, clean, natural digital images which retold our story and captured every moment of our wonderful day; even those special moments of a stolen kiss whilst guests partied on around us. We were very impressed with photos he had taken of a friend of a friend’s wedding and was highly recommended. We were right to book him as his natural style (that he advocates on his website) was evident in the photos we received back. On top of that, he’s a really nice, likeable chap who clearly loves his job and truly wants to capture a natural photographic journal of your wedding day. Looking at images of other weddings on his website, you can see he’s taken loads of great pics and his professional acumen behind the lens means he uses the landscapes, buildings, architecture of the different wedding venues to great effect. Would I book him again? – Hell yes!”
