Gavin Forster Photography believes that photographs allow you to be taken back to moments so easily forgotten and therefore become the true treasures in life.

My passion is in capturing the emotions of wedding days and special events in beautiful photographs, showing the personal nature of every client and event. I am also proud to say that I am one of a very limited number of photographers in the UK who offers an eco-wedding option, giving environmentally conscious couples the peace of mind knowing that every aspect of their bespoke eco-wedding package is environmentally friendly and sustainable.

As an experienced wedding photographer I have photographed weddings for numerous happy couples across the North East (including Newcastle, Durham, Sunderland and Northumberland) and throughout the UK; each time capturing the emotions and personal touches that make every occasion special. As an experienced portrait photographer I photograph people in a natural way, capturing their true personality in a relaxed manner, also capturing the little details as well as the main events, resulting in a collection of beautiful photographs that allow the treasured memories to last forever.

I am available for weddings and engagement shoots, portrait and lifestyle sessions, family portraits and commercial projects in Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham, Northumberland and the surrounding areas but am also willing to travel further afield.

Customer Testimonials

Gavin Forster Photography recently did our wedding photography with excellent results. We were pleased with the process from start to end. Gavin was very accommodating with all our questions. He made the whole process a very relaxing one taking more natural photographs even with the group shots. The photographs themselves are of excellent quality, gorgeous and are a super reminder of the whole day. They all tell a story. Not only did we enjoy him as a photographer but the guests commented on how good he was and not your 'typical' wedding photographer. We would recommend Gavin as a photographer to anybody not only for a wedding but any shots as he in addition did our lifestyle shoot which again was excellent. We can't thank him enough. He captured our special day perfectly!


From first meeting Gavin we knew instantly that he'd fit perfectly into our wedding. On the day he was instrumental to putting my Dad and my new husband at ease and didn't make anyone uncomfortable with posed positions. He allowed us to enjoy our day and simply melted into the background whilst snapping away. We've experienced other weddings where photographers didn't allow the bride and groom time to spend with ther guests and with Gavin eveything was on our terms. He was endlessly patient with our 3 year old flower girl and happy to take us away from the venue after the ceremony to get stunning pictures on the hills in the snow even though that meant getting my hem a little mucky (well I'm not going to wear it again!). From our first sneak peak of the photos we can tell Gavin knew exactly what we wanted and captured really natural and happy moments from the day. We're incredibly grateful for his genuine personality and we're all very excited to see the finished product!


Gavin is not only a fantastic photographer but an awesome bloke too. Not really knowing what to expect at out engagement photo shoot he totally put us at ease throughout and even helped us pick a location. On the day of our wedding he went above and beyond helping with all the little things you forget or start stressing about. Not only a great guy but a very calming influence if you're having a bridezilla moment and the photos are fab too!


Just got our wedding photos back tonight and WOW!! Looking back through them all brings back so many happy memories and Gavin has done the most incredible job at capturing all the special moments for us. Beautiful memories and beautiful, artistic and natural photos. Could not be happier, thank you Gavin.
