How Green is your Supplier?


How Green is your Supplier?

So we've put together a ten point criteria, the Green Gauge, that we ask all our partners, your wedding suppliers, to comply with for your peace of mind. The wedding industry covers a broad activity base and you will have your own benchmark of how 'green' you want your suppliers to be. We happily accept wedding suppliers who are trying their best and can check 4 or more criteria on our Green Gauge.

Gavin Forster Photography: Natural & Personal

I use three words to sum up my wedding photography style - simple, natural and personal. I like to keep things as simple as possible! I tell the story of your wedding day, achieving this by capturing the emotions and special moments as they happen. I don't ask for lots of unnatural poses and definitely don't take over proceedings - it's your day not mine!

The thing that I love the most is being able to capture awesome wedding photographs that you will treasure forever: photographs that bring back happy memories, that capture the personality of you, your guests and the uniqueness of your wedding day. I absolutely love giving my couples their collection of stunning wedding photographs and waiting for their reaction - the laughs, smiles and often tears of joy! One very important thing that I always say to couples is to remember how much time and effort you've spent making your wedding day unique to you: I truly believe that your wedding photographs should be just as unique. You don't want an ‘off the shelf’ wedding day that looks just like everyone else's, so why would you want your wedding photographs to look like everyone else's?

I love photographing people and have a real passion for green issues so feel truly privileged to be able to combine these two passions into one. By its very nature, modern photography can be eco-friendly to some extent; however I firmly believe it is important to go that extra mile. Eco Wedding Photography is something I feel passionately about!

I aim to make sustainable choices wherever possible and these factors should be the primary decision factor when reasonable to do so. I operate as an Eco Wedding Photographer; offering environmentally conscious clients the best possible package to suit their personal needs whilst having as little impact on the planet as possible. I don't however charge a premium rate for this 'eco-service': all of my couples benefit from the same professional service, unique style, years of experience and high quality products.

"He made us so relaxed and he was so lovely we felt  like he was one of the guests. The images were spectacular and he sent us a gift when it was all done. Absolutely wonderful."  Caroline & Philip

"We have had so many comments on how brilliant our wedding photos are.  Not only are they skilfully artistic but also captured who we are as individuals. I have not seen photos like it!! Gavin not only made our wedding day so incredible he also became a friend to both of us."  Fraser & Rebecca
