Right, so now you've met your wedding photographer and new friend, let our fun adventure begin!
But we are not getting married in bristol!
Don't worry! Although the land of Bristol l is home but I shoot weddings nationwide and even travel abroad too! So why not check out my photographers portfolio to see my art and drop me a line anyways to book your photography
Firstly It is awesome to meet you, I might be a wedding photographer in Bristol however I also capture weddings all over the UK and further afield. A wedding to me is like a gigantic memory album, an album that contains mini stories of the wonderful people that you love. Each photograph forms part of this story and each picture is captured in an honest and authentic way. A style that blends natural, yet artistic, documentary wedding photography. I want to show your granny 'resting her eyes' and that mad best friend falling over after going heavy on the sauce! I ultimately wanto to capture the true personalities of everyone involved in the wedding day.
What about the non-photographer me. I love bow ties, music, red wine & photographing faces! I used to work at sea, but now live with my amazing partner, and our two cats, Mungo & Tinks (who are sick of having their photos taken) in the town of Clevedon near the city of Bristol.
When I am not playing wedding photographer, you will most likely find me cycling over Clifton Suspension Bridge, kitchen dancing or paddle boarding; listening to Cat Stevens on my vinyl player or taking a selfie in Clevedon Marine Lake. I love shooting street photography especially around the Bristol suburb of Stokes Croft. Finally I love all things art, foreign cinema and music - Bristol is insane for gigs!
Man Behind the Camera
"Gavin's work is nothing short of art"
Wedding photography or documentary films should be natural, beautiful & honest stories of the day! You wont see me creating moments for the camera, or distracting yourselves & your guests from enjoying the wedding day. I also wont get in the way with obtrusive equipment. You will see me busting moves on the dancefloor and photographing all the mini moments in between.
All photographs will tell personal stories, shot in an artistic and authentic way, I will enter as your chosen photographer but leave as a good friend who has just documented your amazing wedding day. I don't just shoot wedding photography around Bristol, as I also I travel the whole of the UK working as a wedding photographer and also shoot a few destination weddings per year too. Contact me now and I'll be there rocking out on the wedding dancefloor with my camera and dancing shoes.

"an absolute dream of a wedding photographer"
Steven + Mary // Wedding
Gavin was an absolute dream of a wedding photographer. We wanted someone that could capture the essence of our day without being in our face and he really delivered on that. He also produced a humdinger of a wedding album, he must have taken so much time to make the photos look as spectacular as they did. His talent as a photographer, coupled with his personality makes him the perfect choice. If you're umming and ahhing, don't do so for too long. This man is going places
what an amazing talent!"
"Wow... what an amazing talent! Gavin makes you feel at ease and you don’t even realise he’s there most of the time! Such natural shots and he takes the perfect shot in a split second, I never once felt I was posing for a photo which is exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend!! I can’t stop looking at them! X"
Nick + Aileen (Wedding)
"He Loves a laugh...
...All we did all
day was howl"
Richard + Victoria // Wedding Couple
"Gavin's work is nothing short of art. An amazing wedding photographer who really captures the feeling of your wedding day without intruding at all! He loves a laugh, which was good because all we did all day was howl.
We couldn't recommend him highly enough and we are so grateful to have found him. keep doing you Gavin!

see you on the 'gram!
say hey to the photographer!
Simple answer, it just is! The small big city, a place steeped in history and a leading light in modern advances. Whether you vibe on the streets of Stokes Croft or just marvel at the magnificence of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, there is not a single inch of the city that will disappoint. The Harbourside is a thriving location and Queens Square or Castle Park are the perfect place to relax in scenic surroundings after a frantic day.
Bristol has a vast array of beautiful scenic backdrops for your wedding photographs. For instance, why not:
// Go to the Harbourside for awesome night reflection photographs
// Climb to the top of either Brandon or Trooper's Hill for sunset shots
// Ride the rock slide at Clifton Observatory
// Go classical with photo portraits in front of Bristol Temple Meads
// Run through the Bristol Museum and Art gallery like in a classic french film
// Head to North Street, Southville or Stokes Croft for graffiti backdrop galore.
// run through Leigh woods for a romantic elopement overlooking the Suspension Bride
The best thing about Bristol is the fact it is awash with so many interesting and diverse people, locations, venues and backdrops. It simply is level 2000 on the wedding coolness scale
There are so many incredible places to get married. Right in the centre you have the M-Shed, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, and Goldney Hall. The Mount Without is the best place for a more alternative wedding and The Paintworks is ideal for those creative couples, however for an intimate, personable occasion then The Forge, or The Square Club are more likely your venue choice. If you want spectacular views Clifton Observatory is unbeatable, with its rooftop vibes in for the champagne toasts before exclusively partying downstairs in the evening.
If history is your thing then why not get married on the SS Great Britain - Brunel's famous navel ship situated on the Bristol harbourside, or get lost in nature at Arnos Vale! A beautiful venue that connects love with nature. The choice of wedding venues around Bristol is so diverse.
Lets talk suppliers! Whether it is florists, MUA's, hair stylists, wedding planners, bands, harpists, ice-cream vans. jugglers, trapeze artists or any other cool and unique thing you can think of - I guarantee I know the perfect wedding supplier for you! So to conclude Bristol is full of pure wedding awesome!
