Rob is head and shoulders above most wedding photographers. His imaginative approach, his ability to identify and capture fleeting moments which contributes so much to the record of the day, and his attention to detail make an irresistibly persuasive combination. Becky too is a fine photographer and working so closely with Rob she anticipates his every move and need. The result is very satisfying client experience and a wonderful portfolio of images from which to look back at a special day.
On the Saturday 23rd September 2017, me and my wife Charlotte got married. It was truly the most magical day from start to finish. We met Rob a year or so prior to our wedding day and secured his services, even before the venue! On the day, he was simply outstanding. Charlotte and her family being predominantly English and mine Sri Lankan, Rob captured the essence of both of our cultures and brought it to life with the most outstanding collection.
He was so thorough and thoughtful about what pictures he took. Just to top it off one of his pictures of us made the front cover of Vale Life magazine. If anyone is wondering what photographer to go with, don't hesitate contact Rob!
We met Rob at a wedding fayre, and he immediately stood out from the other photographers who were exhibiting. We were very impressed with the quality of past work that he was able to demonstrate to us, as well as his outgoing personality.
The choice of wedding photographer is one of the biggest decisions that you have to make for your wedding day, and we are so glad that we chose Rob.
We had a pre-wedding shoot a couple of months before the wedding, which gave us an opportunity to get to know Rob better and understand better the types of photograph that worked best for us.
On the day itself both Rob and his wife Becky were amazing. We had a selection of formal photos, but many of our favourite shots were the ones where we didn't even realise that we were being photographed. Rob and Becky tended to take the same photos from different angles, so they really did have every angle covered.
Talking to friends and family, we get the impression that the majority of wedding photographers just send you a disc or link with photos to choose from for your album.
With Rob however, we had a totally different experience. We were invited to Rob's house a few weeks after the wedding, to view our photos along with a very nice lunch and a glass of bubbly whilst re-living the memories of our wedding day. Due to the number of amazing photos that were taken, we found it very difficult to narrow down the selection for our album. Which was of course a nice problem to have.
We then received our finished albums two months after our wedding day, hand delivered by Rob with the same enthusiasm that we had experienced since we first met him.
Rob was the perfect photographer for our wedding in the Cotswolds in May 2015. He was friendly and professional and really made the effort to get to know us and our families beforehand, so we felt completely at ease on the day. His photos are utterly stunning - he really captured the love, fun and colour of our big day! Thanks Rob, and your lovely wife, Becky, who helped on the day too!
We can fully recommend Rob Wheal as an excellent wedding photographer. Rob took the time to really understand our schedule and venues and plan what pictures we would want. He was subtle and he used a photo-journalistic style - focussing on capturing candid views of the day and our friends and families (along with some of the standard posed photos). Working together with his wife meant that we often had multiple angles and views of the same scene. When we saw the results from the day we were floored with how many amazing shots there were (700+!) - the hardest part was trying to choose which ones were our favorite.
Rob was professional yet friendly. He gave us the time we needed to make the choices right for us. On our wedding day it was important to me to feel at ease being photographed and Rob blended in and even in posed shots I felt relaxed. The quality and end product for me were exactly what I had hoped for. The most important thing to me was that I and my husband felt calm, relaxed, enjoyed the experience and didn't feel hijacked by our photographer to get the shots they wanted. Rob achieved this. I would have no qualms recommended him to others.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rob to future brides. He captured our wedding day perfectly and created an amazing album for us to treasure. Most importantly he made us feel entirely comfortable from the outset. It was a pleasure for him to be part of our big day.
Rob took the photographs for our wedding back in April 2015 and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. We're not keen on having our pictures taken so having the engagement shoot was really helpful - Rob was so friendly it meant that on the day we felt we knew him and could relax more. Rob and Becky captured some fantastic shots throughout our whole wedding day, from beautiful, natural family photographs to some wonderful guest reactions - most of which we had no idea they were even taking. We would highly recommend Rob.
We hired Rob to be our wedding photographer at our ceremony back in Oct 2013. From beginning to the end, Rob provided a complete service, from an initial consultation to discuss what kind of photo's we were looking to get of the day, to actually picking the photo's (very hard task!) to go in the official album! Rob was there all day to capture every moment, from the very morning when I was getting ready, to the end of the night, when I was past caring what my make up looked like ;-) I would definatly recommend Rob as the photographer to hire to capture your special day in all its glory!
After meeting Rob at a wedding fair we immediately knew we wanted him to be our photographer. Rob and Becky are extremely friendly and put two camera shy people at ease. Our engagement shoot in London was a great idea and it reinstalled our thoughts we'd made a good choice. On our wedding day, Rob and Becky didn't intrude and captured moments perfectly. We love our album and have so many beautiful images to treasure, Rob has a great eye for detail without it being showy. We would not hesitate to recommend Rob to others and the fact we are still in touch 18months after our wedding shows he really does care.
