Kind Words

Here are some very kind words of praise from some of my past clients.

cuddling bride and groom

Penny & Jake

Married 2014, Rudding Park Hotel, Harrogate

” Meeting Gav was totally by chance when we went to a Wedding Fayre to order a cake! Until then we were not going to bother with an official photographer as we didn’t want all the formality that we had experienced at other weddings, we just wanted it to be fun and natural. But Gav, he’s unique! From the outset he made us both feel relaxed, he listed to our concerns and well what can we say – we changed our minds.

He noted what we wanted and made suggestions, his attention to detail is second to non, his approach on the day was not intrusive and he put us all at ease with many guest commenting on what a fantastic photographer he was.

I have no hesitation in recommending Gav to anyone, he was brilliant from start to finish. A huge big thanks for capturing our memories of our special day ”

Penny & Jake

Woodlands Leeds wedding photographer Gav Harrison Photography

Gemma & Franky

Married 2014, Woodlands Hotel, Leeds

” Before meeting Gav, we met with about half a dozen other photographers, but none of them had the ‘wow factor’ that we were looking for. Just when we thought we would never find the right photographer, a friend told us that he’d attended a wedding where Gav had been the photographer, and after seeing the quality of his work he’d wished that Gav had been the photographer for his wedding.

It was important for us to have a photographer with a relaxed personality, someone who wouldn’t be in people’s faces throughout the day. As soon as we met Gav, we felt like we’d known him for years, and were impressed with not only the quality of his work, but the genuine passion he has for photography.

We didn’t hesitate to book with him, and in our follow up consultations and on the day of the wedding, we knew that we’d absolutely made the right decision. To sum up Gav; he’s friendly, efficient, humorous and talented.

If you’re considering Gav as a photographer, then stop considering and book with him NOW!! ”

Cross Butts Hotel Whitby wedding photographer Gav Harrison Photography

Julie & Mark

Married 2012, The Cross Butts Hotel, Whitby

” Having Gav as our wedding photographer was like having the invisible man (with a camera) as a guest!

We didn’t know he was there half of the time but the images he captured were incredible and he went the extra mile to achieve some of the fantastic pictures we have, that will be treasured forever.

An amazing photographer who knows his stuff! ”

Julie & Mark

Rogerthorpe Manor Pontefract wedding photographer

Lizzie & Adam

Married 2014, Rogerthorpe Manor

” We found Gav from a fluke Google search after a few recommendations for other photographers which didn’t suit our needs. As soon as we saw Gav’s work we knew that he was the photographer we had to have for our wedding day.
Gav has managed to capture the memories from our wedding day perfectly and we cannot thank him enough. I could feel my eyes filling up with tears instantly as I scrolled through the incredible images from the day.

All our guests commented on how friendly, yet efficient, Gav was. A refreshing change from guests waiting around for hours while the bride and groom are whisked off for endless photos.

Gav will always be highly recommended by us to anyone that will listen! ”

Lizzie & Adam

Devonshire Fell wedding photographer

Lisa & Ben

Married 2014, The Devonshire Fell, Burnsall

” Gav originally wasn’t even on our radar but was recommended by another photographer and we often count our lucky stars it worked out the way it did!

Lisa & I live in Australia and so had the difficultly of trying to organise a Yorkshire wedding from the other side of the planet. We loved the photos on his website and organised a meeting with him whilst we were in the UK. He made such a good impression we booked him in that day! From that point onwards everything was made very easy with Gav accommodating us by arranging everything over emails and skype prior to the big day.

On the wedding day itself Gav was all smiles and laughs helping put us both at ease. He provided the perfect blend of being relaxed yet efficient and was instrumental in making the day run smoothly. We got all the photos we had asked for, without feeling stressed or rushed but with time left over to enjoy our day – the most important thing of all! In fact, he felt more like a wedding guest with a camera than a photographer we’d hired & everyone at the wedding commented on how great he was!

Amazing photos, Amazing guy! We would recommend Gav in a heartbeat! ”

Lisa & Ben

Sandburn Hall wedding photographer

Bhavna & Tom

Married 2007, Sandburn Hall, York

” Planning a wedding in York whilst I was in Tanzania was challenging, however when I found Gav whilst goggling and spoke to him, I knew we had found our photographer.

Gav was approachable and friendly and made our guests and us feel at ease, he was sort of like a ninja as none of our guests felt like they were being photographed – it was one of the best investments. Gav and I have remained good friends since then, even second shooting for him occasionally – all round good guy and funny man! ”

Bhavna & Tom

Ulveston wedding photographer

Ruth & Matthew

Married 2011, Ulverston, Lake District

” Our experience with Gav was extremely positive from start to finish – from an initial friendly planning session right through to the end product of a stylish and beautifully-packaged wedding photo album.

We couldn’t be more pleased with the images themselves, a perfect balance of formal family photos and some cracking shots which captured the best moments of a memorable occasion.

Gav was extremely professional and well organised yet at the same time didn’t make posing for pictures feel like a formality but more an enjoyable part of our special day.

We heard about Gav’s business through a close family member of ours and would happily recommend the service to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. ”

Ruth & Matthew

Crabbs Barn wedding photographer

Shireen & Tyler

Married 2013, Crabb’s Barn, Essex

” We saw Gav at work at our friend’s wedding and immediately knew he was the one for us!

Relaxed, professional, friendly with just the right amount of formality; words to describe Gav and the way he worked.

From our pre-wedding shoot in Leeds to the day in Essex, Gav went all out to capture not only the day, but to make all our guests feel at ease and as a result we have a beautiful album to treasure for life and share with our family.

Our corn field sunset photo says everything; Gav called us out from our reception party and wanted to take what was to become one of our most favoured photos that involved him burying himself in a corn field and capturing the perfect photo. This now features proudly as our album cover and always reminds us of our perfect day and one of the most important guests we had there to capture it!

I would recommend no one else; he’s down to earth, will work hard and travel for miles and Gav will record the moments you are already dreaming about for your big day. ”

Shireen & Tyler

Bagden Hall wedding photographer

Laura & Lee

Married 2014, Bagden Hall Hotel

” We would 100% recommend Gav Harrison.

Our wedding photographs are fantastic. Gav has the perfect personality he is friendly and puts people at ease but also can organise groups to achieve the perfect shot.

You would be silly to look elsewhere! ”

Laura & Lee

Gartenschau wedding photographer, International wedding photographer

Nicole & James

Married 2013, Gartenschau, Kaiserslautern, Germany

” In short: Gav is awesome in every aspect! Our wedding was in Germany and required Gav to fly out and stay over there, which was no problem for him at all. Instead he was nothing but helpful and accommodating every step of the way.

Gav is a great character, easy going, sociable and got along with the guests famously. For us and everyone else, working with him was always a pleasure. From our very first contact, our following consultations and finally the day itself, he always listened, came up with great ideas and ultimately amazing photos of our day and we’re really, really happy we got him as our photographer. We’ve received nothing but compliments for our photos and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him in a heartbeat! ”

Nicole & James

Merewood Country House Hotel wedding photographer

Jane & Nick

Married 2010, The Merewood Country House Hotel, Lake Windermere

” We met Gav at a local wedding fair. Gav had a friendly, professional demeanour and excellent photos on display.

We booked Gav to photograph our wedding and were so glad we did!

On the day he put everyone at ease and captured all of the moments we requested and more. We are so pleased with our album.

When my sister got engaged the following year, I recommended Gav and luckily he could squeeze us in. Again, some fantastic photos, and when our daughter came along the following year, there was no question who we would ask to photograph her. Again, Gav didn’t disappoint and we were thrilled with the results ! ”

Jane & Nick

Bagden Hall wedding photographer Gav Harrison Photography

Hema & Damian

Married 2010, Bagden Hall Hotel

” A friend of mine recommended Gav when we were looking for a photographer for our wedding. We wanted someone who would fit in and be part of our special day, rather than someone who was there to do a job.

Gav exceeded our expectations, from the minute we met face to face for our consultation, we felt like we had known him years! His friendly, approachable and professional manner won us over, we were so happy with all communication, him being part of our special day right through to the handover of the final product.

Gav truly is an amazing photographer, always thinking outside of the box to create those extra ordinary photos. We still continue to recommend his work! ”

Jenny & Alex

Married 2012, Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, Oxfordshire

” Thank you so much for being part of our special day, not only as our photographer but also as our friend. It was great to have you there and quite honestly we couldn’t have wished to have anyone better to take our pictures. You are so easy to get along with and make everything so much fun. I think everyone wanted to be your mate by the end of the day!

We had an amazing time but when all’s said and done it’s the memories that you hold on to. Every time we look at our album we re-live a different part of the day and it’s something we will absolutely treasure forever. A million ‘thank you’s again!

lots of love Alex and Jen xx ”

Peterborough wedding photographer Gav Harrison Photography

Helen & Ed

Married 2011, Marquee Wedding, Peterborough

” Incredible photos which perfectly captured one of the best days of our life.

Not only did Gav produce amazing and beautiful photos he was also easy to speak to and and made us feel incredibly at ease. Neither Ed or I are keen on having our photos taken but Gav managed to make us feel comfortable and produced photos that we love.

We have had so many compliments on the quality of the photos and a number of guests on the day commented on how well he managed arranging all the photos. I wouldn’t hesitate to and already have recommended him to others. ”

Helen & Ed

Woodlands leeds wedding photographer

Susie & Damien

Married 2012, Woodlands Hotel, Leeds

” Choosing a photographer to capture our special day was one of the most important decisions for us when planning our wedding.

From the moment we met Gav we both knew he was the man for the job. He not only made ‘us’ feel comfortable but our entire family and friends. In fact we were recently at a wedding In St Petersburg when a family member I have not seen since the wedding 2 years ago remarked on the fact she had been to many weddings in her lifetime and had never experienced such a fantastic wedding photographer as ours.

Our photos truly represent what an amazing day we had and we are so happy with the fantastic album Gav produced for us! ”

Susie & Damien

Harewood House Leeds wedding photographer Gav Harrison Photography

Elizabeth & Ajay

Married 2013, Harewood House

” Gav’s pictures of our wedding were beautiful. He was careful to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted. We were really pleased with the end result, particularly as it was the first Hindu ceremony he had photographed. Gav captured all the important moments perfectly. Guests commented on how professional and friendly he was. We really appreciated the calming influence and understanding he had.We would recommend him to anyone.

Thanks for capturing such wonderful memories of our big day,

Liz & Ajay “

Devonshire Fell Wedding Photographer

Jenny & Matthew

Married 2011, Devonshire Fell

” Gav – Thank you for the wonderful job you did on our wedding day!

You helped make the day special by setting us and all our guests at ease. The photos you took, and the album you have created are absolutely fantastic and mean that we will be able to treasure the day forever.

We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you once again! ”

Jenny & Matthew

Bagden Hall wedding photographer

Ruth & Ben

Married 2013, Bagden Hall Hotel

” From the first time we met Gav, during the run up to our wedding and especially on the day itself; we found Gav to be enthusiastic, encouraging, friendly, on the ball, knowledgeable, interested in our journey, hilarious, intuitive, fun and generally awesome. And that’s just him as a person. As a photographer, he manages to encompass all those qualities professionally; letting things happen naturally but still capturing moments of the day which we will treasure forever.

Gav helped us both to feel confident and relaxed; basically we had a right laugh and that’s mainly because Gav instantly ‘got’ what we were trying to achieve for our special day. There are some moments of our day which we were not aware of at the time, very special moments which we have discovered through our photos, thanks to Gav.

His photography is beautiful, natural, and in our case, a very true reflection of exactly what our day was all about. Having Gav as our photographer was very special to us – it didn’t feel like he was our photographer in the end, it felt like he was one of our guests and some of the most memorable moments of our day were more so because of him.

The day was amazing, the photos are amazing and we wouldn’t change anything about Gav and the service he gave us right from the first meeting. Thanks Gav!

Gill & Damian

Married 2010, Holiday Inn, Brighouse

” We chose Gav for our wedding four years ago in 2010 and couldn’t have been happier with our choice.

Gav made us and all of the guests feel relaxed and was good at raising laughs so the photos were all great and very natural.

Gav was with us all day from getting ready in the morning, through to the evening do so captured every part of the day.

The photos and the final album were excellent and we would highly recommend Gav to anyone looking for a photographer for their special day. ”

Gill & Damian

Sun Pavillion Harrogate wedding photographer

Anne & Mike

Married 2013, Sun Pavillions, Harrogate

” Gav created wonderful shots of our wedding day; he is clearly a very talented photographer as evident from his pictures, and was genuinely passionate about making our day special.

Perhaps what the pictures do not show is the skill with which he undertakes his work, in particular having a great sense of timing, knowing when step up and take control of a group, when to fade into the background and let everyone get on with having a good time to such an extent many people thought he was a friend of the family.

A perfect photographer for the perfect day.

Sincere thanks Gav, we had a brilliant time, and it would not have been the same without you. ”

Anne & Mike

Clare & Andrew

Married 2012, Waterton Park Hotel

” Gav, Just to say a huge thank you for your amazing work on our big day and all your work since.

It was a pleasure for you to be part of our big day and we have been so pleased with the outcomes.

Everyone commented on how fantastic you were on the day and we fully agree… for someone who hates being in front of the camera you made it a really enjoyable experience! ”

Clare & Andrew

Sandburn Hall wedding photographer

Jo & Tom

Married 2011, Sandburn Hall, York

” We cannot thank Gav enough for our beautiful wedding pictures.

From the moment we met Gav we knew we wanted him to take our wedding photographs, and we didn’t go to see anyone else. His portfolio looked stunning, and the style of photography was just what we were looking for (a mixture of modern/relaxed/natural pictures along with some traditional formal ones) but above all his personality and enthusiasm was what made us secure our booking.

Gav is so approachable, friendly and funny yet extremely professional and efficient in his style of work.

From the consultation right through to receiving our pictures he was a joy to deal with. Several of our guests even commented on what a great guy he was!

We are still in touch with Gav and will continue to recommend him to friends and family. ”

Married 2014, Wentbridge House Hotel

” Gav was recommended to us by our florist and we’re so glad he agreed to do our wedding. Gav was amazing!

Making everyone, including myself as a bride who hates having her picture taken, incredibly comfortable. From day one of speaking with him my husband and I felt like we were speaking with an old friend.

He managed to make the experience fun and we got some beautiful photos to boot! Everyone has commented on how great he was and how fantastic our wedding photos are.

Can’t recommend him highly enough. Thanks Gav!”

Charlotte & Chris

Bagden hall wedding photographer

Alex & Peter

Married 2012, Bagden Hall Hotel

” In our humble opinion Alex and I think Gav is G R E A T!

‘G’ is for Gifted… A true eye for a photo and the detail you need on your wedding day! You only need to look at his portfolio to date… It speaks for itself!

‘R’ is for Relax… The first thing he said to us was
” you’re there to enjoy your day I’m here to worry about your photos, tell me what you want and leave the rest to me”. We did…. he did! We had a great day and got the photos we wanted! So ‘R’ could also stand for Reliable!!!

‘E’ is for Effort… From the initial consolation to the end of our special day Gav went above and beyond to contribute. If he was needed for a shot or a bit of advice… He was there!

‘A’ is for ADVICE, listen to him! He’s been part of a lot of weddings! He’s seen what’s good and bad and has a wealth of knowledge. It might not all suit you but unless you’ve heard it you can’t use it! We listened and made significant improvements to our day!!!

‘T’ is for Top… Gav’s top of his game!!! Even his peers will tell you that. They’ve told us first hand at other weddings we’ve been to.
If you help Gav to understand what you want out of your wedding photos, he will deliver!

Happy, skilled, motivated, GREAT…. we can’t say enough about him!

All the best Gav lots of love,

Pete and Alex! “

Married 2011, Nostell Priory

” We booked Gav for our wedding on 21st May 2011 and we can’t speak highly enough of him and his work.

Our pictures are absolutely stunning- exactly what we wanted. We really didn’t wanted the typical ‘staged’ photographs so Gav delivered us a whole host of ‘caught in the moment’ pictures from our big day.
He was a pleasure to have around on our wedding day and I would recommend him to anyone looking for photographer who has the ability to put you and your guests at ease whilst taking fabulous shots! ”

Looking at all your pictures it’s so evident that you truly love what you do and nothing was ever too much trouble, from our first meeting we knew you were someone we could feel comfortable with and really appreciated you putting a package together to suit us, we loved the fact you never pushed us and gave us plenty of time to decide and I’m sure many of your future clients will appreciate someone whom isn’t pressurising them! ”

” We both wish to thank you once more for your wonderful work on our wedding album!

We were thrilled with our choice of photographer right from the very first meeting with you and with every stage of the wedding (preperations right through to handing the finished product over) you surpassed our high expectations!

Our friends and family have been blown away by the story our album tells. Your talent as a photographer is amplified further to us after seeing our wedding video. As nice as it is to see moving pictures to help us remember the day, the film just shows how your photographs have truly captured the magic of so many moments.

Your skill in capturing such genuine expressions is highlighted by how quickly these moments pass in real time.

Thank you so much for a perfect collection of beautiful memories. ”

Lisa & Adam

Married 2012, Wentbridge House Hotel

” We had met with a few photographers previously but as soon as we met Gav we knew he was the man for us!!
His quality of work is outstanding and by far the best we have seen but more importantly than that his personality is exactly what we needed on our big day.

Before the wedding, the communication was excellent. We met to discuss what type of shots we wanted and he really made us feel at ease. On the day he was essential to proceedings as he made sure we were running to time and even helped with the button holes in between taking some amazing shots!

Afterwards the communication didn’t stop and we didn’t have to wait long to see our stunning album.

We would definitely recommend Gav, We are convinced he is the best in the business ”

Married 2012, Harlaxton Manor, Grantham

” Gav photographed our wedding at Harlaxton Manor, Lincolnshire. We had seen Gav at a couple of friends wedding and loved his friendly, relaxed and creative style, and thought; ‘that’s the photographer for us!’… And he didn’t disappoint!

Not only did he put all of our guests at ease (which gives the best photos) he had great ideas on where to take the photos, lighting, how to stand etc and made us feel relaxed and comfortable the whole way through (and instinctively knew when the groom was ready to head to the bar!) I genuinely could not more highly recommend a photographer – our album is amazing and we have had so many wonderful comments from friends and family on it, we definitely made the right choice! ”

Bagden Hall wedding photographer

Lindsey & Paul

Married 2012, Bagden Hall Hotel

” The minute we met Gav, we knew that he was the perfect photographer for us, he instantly put us at ease.

One thing that was evident from Gav’s photos was the lack of ‘cheesiness’ that you see with other photographer’s work. We wanted natural photographs and images capturing fun and laughter on the day- we definitely were not disappointed!

On the day, all the bridal party were impressed with Gav’s friendliness and his ability to blend into the family- he felt like one of us by the end of it!

It didn’t end there, after the wedding Gav was constantly in touch and managed our expectations in regards to timescales, we were always kept informed.

The finished product was amazing! We couldn’t recommend Gav more highly and following our wedding, many of our friends and family booked him for their own. You really can’t go wrong with him as your photographer. ”

Lindsey & Paul

Sue & Andy

Married 2010, Wood Hall

Hannah & Chris

Married 2012, Bagden Hall Hotel

” From the minute we met Gav at a wedding fayre we knew he was the photographer for us.

His portfolio of previous work was fantastic and his personality and laid back approach was perfect for us. He captured every minute of our special day in a way that was better than I could have ever anticipated.

He blended well with the guests making the dreaded ‘family photo’ part of the day a delight. Many of my guests commented on our photographer and some even took a card with the view to booking him for their weddings!

Gav comes with a massive recommendation from us and we will surely use him again in the future for family photos. ”

” Just a quick note to express our gratitude for all your hard work, we really do appreciate it!

We had the most amazing wedding day and it was an absolute joy to work with you.

We were utterly thrilled when we saw the photographs in the online album but it has to be said that nothing prepared us for the overwhelming emotions we experienced when we received our album!

I’m still pretty much speechless! Amazing, I know!

We will always treasure our album, your work which will allow us to re-capture special memories each time it is opened.

Wishing you all the very best for future success! ”

On the day this was exactly what we wanted, Gav was great fun to be around and everyone who came has since commented on how great our photographer was!

newfield hall wedding photographer

Marie & Matthew

Married 2012, Newfield Hall

” We first met Gav 4 years ago at my sisters wedding. My husband Matt has always hated having his photo taken, but when I looked through the shots on the website afterwards, I saw that not only was Matt on some of these (he hadn’t snuck off!) but he was actually posing on some! I shouldn’t have been so surprised as Gav was so easy going, friendly and non intrusive, he made everyone feel relaxed.

When Matt and I got engaged 2 years later, we knew there was only 1 person we wanted to capture our special day!

The most difficult thing was choosing the photo’s we wanted in the album afterwards (even though we had them all on disc as well!), as there were literally hundreds to choose from and they brought all of the memories flooding back and showed us a few things we’d missed in the excitement of the day. Our wedding album is simply incredible! We’ve had so many compliments on it and we can’t thank Gav enough! If we decide to do it all over again we will be back! :) ”

Hospitium wedding photographer

Lucia & Laurie

Married 2011, The Hospitium, York

” Gav photographed our wedding back in august 2011. To this day, I still rave about his work and how pleased I was with the results. Gav was amazing on the day. He did what he had to do but kept things quick and snappy and became a ‘fly on the wall’ so to speak. We didn’t even notice him taking pictures most of the time, which made the end product even more great as all sorts of moments were captured from the day.

I would highly recommend Gav as a photographer for any occasion. Gav is not only a superb photographer who knows just how to capture the right moments without you even knowing he photographed them at the time, but he also has a talent for putting people at ease and getting just what is needed from them smoothly and in a very friendly way.

Thanks a million for adding to our wedding day! ”

” We are both so thrilled that we chose Gav as our wedding photographer!

He is extremely talented and passionate about photography and made us feel very comfortable with having our photos taken.

We didn’t even know he was there after the formal, posed family shots, but our album tells a completely different story!

He really captured the atmosphere of our day and our album surpassed all expectations – it is stunning and we will always treasure those memories.

We just cannot wait for an excuse to work with him again!

Thank you Gav xxx ”

Lauren & Adam

Bagden Hall wedding photographer

Sarah & Richard

Married 2013, Bagden Hall Hotel

” As a ‘bride to be’ I found that everyone dished out advice; where to go for your dress, what venue to have, who to have make your cake etc. However most of the time this is just what other people had had or did so I felt some were a little bias, which is where I stress here that I will not be bias with this review just 100% truthful.

My friend offered the advice to me which in hindsight was the best of the whole wedding…
“Choose a photographer you are comfortable with and get along with, they’re with you all day and it’s a long day if they’re annoying!”

Fair enough I thought, so that’s why as soon as we met Gav we knew we had to have him!

He was so chatty, funny and friendly to the both of us, and each time we met Gav we’d always come away saying what a lovely person he was and how easy he is to get along with, obviously this then continued and he was an absolute hit on the wedding day! We wanted our wedding to just be fun and relaxed I just knew instantly that Gav would completely understand this, so to have him around all day would be no problem at all.

We actually met Gav and started chatting to him at a wedding fayre way in advance of our wedding date, he had a few albums there and there were a fair few of his photos that just took my breath away, just stunning! This completely sealed the deal for us, he ticks all the boxes!! Friendly, chatty, funny, relaxed and takes a blooming good photo too! Which sounds strange I know, but there are some photographers out there that take all the standard photos and you tend to see the same types of photos in wedding albums with the lay out and style, but there really was just something special about Gav’s work, it seemed so different and fresh and not one album was the same.

Once we had booked Gav I was happy in the knowledge that our most important person (the photographer) was sorted, because at the end of the day when the wedding has gone the only thing which stands the test of time and what you will show people for years to come and the grandchildren (of course, pass the bucket!) is the photos! So for us, this was priority on our ‘list’.

Gav was no hassle at all, he’d email when payments were due and was very attentive, we had 2 meetings with him, where he showed us his current work in a slideshow, which again was amazing I could just pop round to his house any day to watch that slide show, all stress free, easy talking and we just felt absolutely 100% confident that he would just handle everything on the day as we wanted.

When it comes to what shots we wanted, again Gav just knew a main point which we picked up on when he was explaining how he works on the day was that he takes around 20 minutes of the guests time for all the ‘big’ shots. We were thrilled with this, the last thing you want our the big day is everyone stood around bored to tears being pushed and pulled in and out of family shots, group shots and friends shots, so when Gav said this it was music to our ears!

In our final meet with Gav, we didn’t have time to go to his house so we arranged this over Skype! Brilliant! We simply had to state which family members we wanted for shots; us with both parents’, us with his family then us with my family etc. This was nice and straight forward but I felt I didn’t need to stress to Gav about wanting certain photos I felt so confident that what he took on the day would be exactly right, and low and behold it was!

On the day Gav arrived at my parents’ house, we ordered him bacon butty and he just got on with it, just went and took shots of my dress, the bridesmaids dresses and those all-important fabulous photos of people just going about their business getting ready. They for me were by far the best photos. I was so relaxed safe in the knowledge that Gav was there and you didn’t need to grab him for taking the shot, he’d probably already taken it when you were looking natural and happy.

I honestly cannot recommend Gav Harrison enough! Ask any of the guests at our wedding, they all loved him!! He was like part of the family by the end of the day and that in my personal opinion is the sort of photographer every wedding should have! It was just magic, he’s a pure genius!

We always were confident with Gav from day dot, so when Rich and I came to choosing our photos it was a very difficult decision, but when it came to the album art and lay out, that was easy peasy, we just left it all in Gav’s safe hands! It is his job after all and again he exceeded all expectations, our album is perfect!! One of a kind and completely designed from scratch by a professional, what else do you want?! A hand over in person??! Well just when we thought this chap couldn’t get any better, he gave us just that!
Gav delivered our album to us a week before Christmas in the comfort of our own home!

As I said earlier I know this review may be long but if you’ve skipped to the end I hope this summarises Gav Harrison’s work well enough, he is a pro in every aspect of his work, just book him, sit back relax and worry about the suits or the dress because the photography will sort itself if Gav’s in charge and will blow you away!!

Thank you Gav, we only wish we lived closer to see you more often, we miss you and think you’re great! ”
