CUSTOMER REVIEWS & COMMENTS

All of the below are taken directly from customer reviews left on my Facebook page, please click HERE to view the originals.

Emma Bridge — I don't know where to start! Gareth was recommended to us by a friend and the moment we met we knew we wanted to hire him for our big day. Gareth made us feel so at ease during our meeting and made us laugh so much during our pre wedding shoot that we forgot we were having our photo taken ( I highly recommend having a pre wedding shoot if you are nervous like we were) On the day Gareth was amazing. He even helped do up my dress buttons and put jewelry on because all the girls had long nails and couldn't do it! He carried my train and veil and told me not to worry about the fact people had stood on my dress and made it muddy. During the early evening we barely noticed Gareth was there taking photos (which we loved because we prefer the natural candid shots) Again we would both like to thank Gareth we couldn't of chosen a better photographer. Can't wait to see the finished photos now. Love from the new Mr & Mrs Bridge x

Cerys Wyn Parry-Evans — Gareth is absolutely amazing - we honestly couldn't recommend him enough! He's friendly, funny and a perfectionist which makes for a top quality photographer! At our wedding, it was like having a best friend around for the day. We felt so relaxed having our photo taken and that's down to his manner - he made us laugh at one another and everybody enjoyed the process. We are so excited to see our photos because I know they'll be amazing. I'm sure I'll feel the need to write another recommendation once I've had the photos! Thank you / Diolch yn fawr Gareth

 

Non Childs — Gareth Non Childs was the photographer at our wedding in May and choosing him was possibly the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. Such a nice guy, easy to get along with and excellent communication in the run up to the wedding answering any queries we had. Guests commented on how unobtrusive he was throughout the day. His work is incredible, we were blown away by the images he delivered to us and we’re so glad we have these memories to treasure forever. Thank you Gareth 🙌🏼

Ben Powell — We just can't thank Gareth enough for the amazing moments he captured for us on our wedding day. He worked tirelessly on one of the hottest days of the year and did a fantastic job at making us all feel so at ease.  We had so much fun bouncing ideas off him on the day, he was so good at thinking on his feet, capturing shots and trying things we would never have thought of.  From day one he really understood what we wanted from our small, laid back wedding and his shooting style suited us perfectly. We'd happily recommend him to anyone!

Emily Hawkes — What an absolute gem!! I am completely grateful to my best friend who recommended Gareth to be our photographer for our wedding. He not only delivered exactly what we were looking for but also made our wedding exciting and memorable!! It was a relaxed, fun and emotional day, all things Gareth managed to capture.

Sharon Dyer — I can honestly say that without Gareth, our day wouldn't have been the same. You can clearly see how much he loves his job from the quality of his work, it speaks for itself.  Thank you again Gareth!! Emily & Dan

Ellen Linkman — Our wedding day was made all the more special by the presence of Gareth! We've had so many compliments about his demeanor on the day. Nothing was too much trouble for him and at times I forgot he was there until I heard the click click click. Would highly recommend Gareth and if we ever need a photographer in the future he is the first person I will call!

 

Gareth took our photos at our wedding yesterday and was fantastic. He made us completely at ease and made the whole process an enjoyable experience. Can’t wait to see the rest of our photos

Rhianwen Llewelyn-Davies — A huge thank you to Gareth for making my day fabulous. He did all the research of all the photos that I would like on my wedding day and he managed to capture nearly all of them, even suggesting a few himself which actually are my best photos! He also went the extra mile and stay late to do some sparkler photo in May so a late night. Would highly recommend to anyone, very approachable and professional. Made everyone feel at ease. One very happy customer.

Nadia Phillips — Extremely pleased with all the beautiful photographs Gareth captured at our wedding at the Cawdors in Llandeilo, he worked hard all day and night ensuring he captured all those special moments, I was over whelmed by how many images he took and we've had so many compliments how amazing the photos are. Its true what they say....a picture can most definatly speak a thousand words.


What I love about his work is that his photographs are so natural but with a touch of class, he knows exactly what he's looking for, he has a very good eye and felt so comfortable around him, and I can't thank him enough for these beautiful memories that we can cherish for the rest of our lives.

Johanna Thomas — WOW! Where do I begin to describe Gareth. This guy is super passionate about his work & strives to ensure that you get wedding pictures that you will love & treasureforever. Gareth is a lovely, friendly guy who spent numerous times chatting to me prior to my wedding. He wanted to know how I envisaged my wedding pictures to be and set about replicating my ideas.  On the day I hardly knew Gareth was there working his magic. He set about creating candid photos of myself, new husband, family & friends. He captured some great shots & I am blown away with how beautiful they are! I have had so many great comments relating to my photos & I am so pleased that I chose Gareth to capture my special day and would urge future brides to check out his work.

Thanks Gareth for being such a great guy & leaving us with such beautiful photographs that we can cherish forever.

All the best for your future from Johanna & Chris

We discussed with Gareth what we wanted and when the time came he didn't disappoint. Gareth is a very easy person to get along with but professional at the same time.

Niamh Griffiths — Cannot praise you and your work enough, from day 1 you made us feel at ease and you've captured the most incredibly beautiful memories for us! Everyone has complimented your work and how stunning our images have turned out. I know I've said it alot, but thank you again!!

Rhydian Boland — Simply brilliant! From the moment he got there to when he left everything was fantastic, from the planned photos to him just snapping as he went. We would highly recommend to anyone!

Sophie Griffiths — Gareth you were a star on Friday at our wedding! You worked so hard despite having a mare of a day (car getting damaged and breaking some equipment!). The photos I've seen so far look amazing and I can't wait to see the rest. You were professional and relaxed at the same time and I kept forgetting you were there taking photos (the sign of an awesome photographer ). Our families were so impressed with you and loved your enthusiasm. Thank you so much, you made me feel relaxed and Matt and I are glad you were a big part of our day xxxx

 

Eleri Wyn Mackey — We booked Gareth to cover a local Schools end of Year 6 Prom in Garnant Golf club. We were fortunate to have a lovely sunny evening overlooking the wonderful views of the Amman Valley. The children were in obvious high spirits & full of fun, Gareth managed to capture all of the children throughout the night inside & outside as individuals, pairs , groups of friends & whole class photos in a range of settings! I cannot recommend his work enough & was worth every penny. Lots of happy parents were thrilled with the images taken & certainly memories were made and captured to enjoy for years to come! Diolch yn fawr Gareth wrth rieni Blwyddyn 6 Ysgol Gymraeg Rhydaman.

Aidan Kiely —What a guy. Since we were recommended Gareth’s way he’s been nothing but patient, understanding and thorough throughout our time together. He made Siân and I feel completely at ease on both our wedding day and our engagement shoot. His work ethic is spot on, and our guests couldn’t find a bad word to say about him. Highly recommended and I’m sure he’ll go far, doesn’t take the piss finance wise either as some of you happy couples may be discovering as you shop around. 

Value for money and then some, and he’s a bit of a wind up merchant so expect some laughs! 

Thanks Gareth for everything, hopefully we’ll see you soon on the wedding circuit in the years to come! 

Aidan and Siân Kiely 

Siân Curtis  — We have just received our photos from Gareth and everyone has commented on how beautiful they are. Gareth's amazing portfolios speak for themselves and he offers excellent customer service and value for money !

Shelley Pixley — Well, what can I say. Gareth did an awesome job covering my grandsons Christening yesterday. I, a fellow photographer, just wanted to enjoy the day rather then attempt to capture the day so Gareth was there capturing these memories for us. I am so grateful and know that the images will be amazing as always. Thank you again.

 

Mindy Fransen Phelan — We've had the pleasure of having Gareth shoot us several times over the years. His keen eye and creativity is like no other. Some of the candid shots he took from our wedding are amongst my favourite and most treasured memories. He took the time to find out what really mattered to us, and I can honestly say some of the photos he took were so touching that they moved me to tears. Thank you, Gareth. I look forward to doing another shoot in London before we move back to the states :)

 

Annie Hill — Gareth is a true all rounder not only does he take fantastic wildlife shots but he did both our engagement shoot and wedding and the results are amazing. Not being "natural posers" having an engagement shoot to get used to the way Gareth works was great for us. He also took the time to discuss with us exactly what we wanted from our wedding photos. It helped make us feel more comfortable in front of the camera on the wedding day and be able to just enjoy ourselves whilst Gareth worked his magic. Gareth has the ability to use the surroundings in a unique way creating beautiful photos. We are over the moon with the results and look forward to revisiting and enjoying the images for many years to come. Gareth is a true professional, great bloke and fabulous photographer!

 

Jerri De Melverda — Gareth is absolutely amazing, he took beautiful photos of my wedding and was so pleasant and lovely throughout it all! I would 100% recommend him to anyone. Thanks so much for doing such a fabulous job and capturing special memories.

 

Helen Williams — Gareth did our wedding last friday,what a fantastic photographer.I would highly recommend him to anyone.Thank you Gareth.

 

Mark Reynolds — Gareth really made our wedding a relaxed and happy day. He has a way of making people chill out and be themselves. Not only that but he is a very skilled photographer who manages to get some great memories of your day. We were thrilled with our wedding pictures and we often flick through them and remember the day. Nothing was too much trouble for Gareth and he is definitely a worth while investment in any wedding that you are planning for the future.

You wont be disappointed. Book him now!

 

Alison Lynne Timothy — This autumn I wanted to have photos taken of my daughters as I love the colours at this time of year. I had a chat with Gareth about my idea and from word go all I can say is that he was amazing!


Gareth made the arrangements and we met for the photo shoot...having a 21 month old can be rather difficult when trying to catch a good photo but Gareth did it no problem. He was great with the girls and my eldest daughter was a proper little poser. We had a lovely afternoon in the woods just the four of us, and the girls thoroughly enjoyed.


I am over the moon with the finished results, so many beautiful pictures to chose from, and I can't thank Gareth enough for doing such a fantastic job.
I would highly recommend to anyone, what a talent!


Sheridon Castillo — We are so happy we chose Gareth as our photographer. We had never met before the wedding due to my hectic life, so we didn't get to discuss much about what we wanted. The photos turned out fantastic mostly due to Gareth being so friendly, helpful and accommodating to ourselves and our guests and not forgetting talented! We are not big fans of being photographed, but we felt at ease with him and enjoyed every minute! Thank you Gareth, we look forward to see you again some time this year for some family shots. Mr & Mrs Castillo x

 

Beth Roberts — What can I say- Gareth was brilliant on day of the wedding- clicking away but made everyone feel at ease and not in your face at all. He took fantastic photos of the big day and captured great memories that we'll never forget! Will Definitely recommend him to family and friends.

 

Emma Llewelyn — We cannot recommend Gareth enough. He worked tirelessly on the day to capture hundreds of amazing photos of our wedding. We really couldn't be happier with them! He is a highly creative photographer who got so many unique images that have a crisp, clean look. He managed to capture us, our family and friends and the venue just perfectly and was professional, friendly and didn't intrude on the day. He did an amazing job of gathering us all together for family shots and coordinating people effortlessly. 5 star service all round! Thanks so much Gareth

Alexandria Maria Todd — Had photographs of my children done with Gareth and he was very patient with my little girl who is a bit of a whirlwind and never keeps still. The attention to detail of photos of my new-born as just perfect. He took some beautiful pictures both inside and outside the house which we are very pleased with and can't wait to get printed. Presentation of the photographs was excellent and Gareth has kept in contact with me through out the whole process. Thanks would highly recommend.

Kiah Pixley — This man is amazing! He done my sons christening today, and captured every photo possible, was at the the church taking photos of everyone arriving, the service and took some shots with an autumn look, he ever went out off his way to look around the venues to see what on would work for the images, he is truly amazing, makes you feel like the day is about you and grabs every image possible!! Thank you so much Gareth!!

Maxine Jones — Fantastic photographer! We had Gareth for a year 6 prom full of very lively children! He was fab with the children and parents. He didn't intrude at all and he made the children feel at ease and had fun with them which was obvious to see in the photos, none of the forced photo smiles/gritted teeth that you usually see, the natural photos that he takes are brilliant!!! We had photos that have captured a special occasion that no "parent photos" could have taken!!!

Em Ma — We booked Gareth for a corporate event. We've had a taster of the pics and I can't wait to see the rest. Gareth really cares about every last detail. He's great and so easy to work with.
