Jen & Paul & why they hired me

I’m a friendly and down to earth guy. Gifted with an ability that makes others feel at ease from the get go. My style of photography is like pie and chips. Simple, full of flavour and gets the job done without the fuss.

Jen and Paul are just like me. They value the importance of photographs but don’t like having their picture taken. They wanted their day documented without the fuss of endless staged photographs. Instead they wanted all the beautiful moments and everything in between documented without being told where to stand and how to smile. 

All the above sound good to you? Fab, let’s organise a chat!

Weddings at Abbeywood Estate are like no other! You’re able to put your own stamp on things and make it totally personalised.

Jen & Paul’s wedding at Abbeywood Estate was perfect in every way. It was a lovely crisp winter’s day and even in the winter the gardens and views are breathtaking.

Paul and Jen got married in the Garden Cafe at Abbeywood Estate. The log fire was roaring which created the perfect romantic feel.

Drinks and canapes were served afterwards in the Garden cafe and Organery. The atmosphere was amazing as everyone enjoyed each others company.

We took a little fifteen minute stroll around the grounds to capture some natural photographs then headed back inside for a warm in front the fire.

The time seemed to fly by as everyone was enjoying themselves soaking up the atmosphere.

Before we knew it Jen & Paul and all their guests were asked to be seated in the Grand Glass House to enjoy the speeches and wedding breakfast.

Later more drinks were served in the Cafe Bar at Abbeywood Estate whilst the amazing wedding team got to work transforming the Glass House into the evening entertaining space.

The dance floor went off! After Jen & Paul’s first dance, all the guests joined them on the dance floor throwing their best shapes and epic finger dancing!

About me

Don’t like having your picture taken? I can help you with that!

I’m Gav “the friendly candid wedding photographer” specialist in capturing the beautiful moments of your day without telling you where to stand or how to smile.

If you are anything like me you value the importance of photographs but probably avoid the camera like the Avon lady knocking on your door. 

The problem with this is that my wife and children and even myself would much rather have a picture of me than live with the regret of not.

This lead me to develop a style of photography that is perfect for camera-shy couples like myself.

My approach

I totally get it, your looking for a photographer that will blend in and put you at ease from the get-go!

I’m a pie and chips type of guy, down-to-earth and gifted with an ability to make others feel at ease and relaxed.

During your day I’m putting myself in your shoes. I hate the camera so it won’t be shoved in front of your face every five seconds. Nor do I take you on an hour-long photo shoot putting you in awkward poses and asking you to say cheese.

My approach is simple but very effective. I just want you to enjoy every moment with your family & friends.

It’s true, everyone loves natural-looking photographs filled with love, joy and happiness and that’s exactly what you get!

On your wedding day, you’ll find me blending in with your guests happily capturing the heart-tugging moments and all the things you thought you missed.
