I’m pretty awful at blowing my own trumpet…so I’ll let my fabulous couples do it for me!  Here are just a handful of the wonderful testimonials from the amazing people I’ve had the incredible honour to work with over the last few years –

Hyde House Wedding Review

“If you are thinking of booking Rob – do it! You will not regret it. We didn’t spend masses of time looking at photographers, as soon as we saw Rob’s relaxed and laid back style we immediately fell in love with his images and we were not disappointed! We have just got back from our honeymoon and reviewed the 800 images Rob has sent us – and WOW! We are absolutely in love with the photos – they are better than we ever could have imagined!

Rob was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout – we don’t live locally so didn’t actually meet him in person until the day itself – though it felt like we had known him for ages. We dealt with him via email and Skype and we knew we had picked a calm, relaxed and most importantly friendly photographer who would make two people who don’t enjoy having their photo taken enjoy it for one day! We felt so comfortable the whole day, Rob slipped into the background and caught the moments of our wedding perfectly.

The photos will be a constant reminder of the fun and love of the day and we cannot thank Rob enough for capturing the essence and feel of the day so well. So many friends have commented that they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen, and I think that is a great testament to Rob’s work.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! xxx” – Marie & Chris, Hyde House – Stow on the Wold

Hellens Manor Wedding

“From the moment I saw Rob’s work at a wedding fayre in Penyard House I knew instinctively he was the photographer I wanted for our wedding day. It sounds cheesy but I just fell in love with his style of photography and Rob has such a friendly and relaxed nature to go with his expertise. I didn’t have to search for a photographer and from the moment we met with Rob to discuss our day I knew we had made the right choice.

On our wedding day Rob had the ability to just fit in and he got on with his work without us really knowing he was there. He was able to go off and photograph special things without me even having to ask. It was funny as the girls were dreading the ‘photographer’ coming as they had the stereotypical fear of a cheesy, intrusive and overpowering guy but Rob is far from that and straight away my sister and bridesmaids commented on what a fab guy he was.

Throughout the day he continued to cover special moments and ensured he got the shots we wanted. Considering we had a very wet day as well he made the most of any dry opportunities. Yesterday we received our completed images and we are blown away, as are our relatives. Rob really does have the ability to capture perfect moments of guests or children that tell the story of the day amazingly. We cannot recommend Rob enough and thank him so much for all his hard work and sharing our day with us.” – Katie & Will – Hellens Manor, Much Marcle

Kingscote Barn Wedding Photography

“We received the photos whilst in Sri Lanka and waited until we were in the Maldives to view them. We cosied up just like you recommended with a bottle of wine. We enjoyed every second, you have captured our day perfectly. We laughed, we cried and we only stopped when we were interrupted by the hotel staff who brought us a surprise gift of champagne and flowers! It was perfect!

How you managed to capture some of those photos we will never know. You even captured our first proper kiss on the dance floor even though we were hiding behind our hands!! It’s probably our favourite shot.  We visited the family this weekend and everyone loves the photos, we are so happy we chose you; it’s going to be so hard to choose which photos we want up in the house, we have already been out buying frames!  Thank you again for everything Rob.  Not only are you fantastic at your job you are a lovely guy and it was just like having another friend at our wedding.” Victoria & Ben – Kingscote Barn

Elmore Court Gillyflower Sound System

“Rob became our new best friend! We found him via google, we wanted to stick to Gloucestershire suppliers where possible. Both Naresh and I were a bit nervous about formal photography so we really like Rob’s relaxed style. We were also really taken by what a genuinely nice bloke he is. We knew that there was going to be lots of dancing and Rob was keen to stay well after the first dance to take some awesome “action” shots. He was there for well over 15 hours and smiled all the way through!” Katy & Naresh – Elmore Court, Gloucester

Great Tythe Barn

“Rob you are wonderful!! From the very first moment we met you over a year ago I knew you’d be the perfect photographer for us. Your presence on the morning of the wedding was so calming, you made us all laugh! Despite the rain you remained positive throughout the day and managed to get spectacular photos of the wedding and of us. I’ve looked at the photos approximately 900000 times since you sent them to us and will continue to look at them constantly because they are so beautiful I find it hard to believe it’s us in them! We were all surprised at some of the shots you got because we don’t remember you being around at that particular moment which emphasises your professionalism and ninja-ness. Everybody at the wedding commented on how wonderful and lovely you are. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Jess & Sean xx” Jess & Sean – Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

Great Tythe Wedding Reviews-1

“WOW! What can I say apart from what a bloody good job you did capturing our day!!  The photos are exactly what I imagined our wedding photos would be like and you caught so many amazing memories!  I feel very lucky to have come across you on my Google search and incredibly honoured to have had you photographing the most important day of our lives so far! Lots of love Jess and Paul xxxx” Jess & Paul – Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

Chippenham Wedding Photographer

“Rob photographed our wedding this summer in 2015 and as well as producing absolutely beautiful and memorable photographs of our special day, he was a joy to have around. We searched for a long time to find a photographer who was not only capable of taking stunning photos, but one that gave value for money and wasn’t completely unaffordable, as many excellent photographers seem to be. Rob’s package of pre-wedding shots gave us a chance to get to know Rob and how he worked in advance of the big day-and we got to keep a USB of beautiful photos as well. Rob is a true professional with an amazing eye for a good shot, and on our big day he was discreet (I hardly noticed him there and yet he captured so many wonderful moments)! I love his mixture of formal portraits and candid photography. We will treasure Rob’s pictures forever and are so glad we picked him! He’s a thoroughly nice bloke and very, very talented – I would urge anyone planning a wedding to snap him up! ” Kate & Tom – St Michael & All Angels & Moonraker Hotel

Elmore Court Reviews

“Rob kindly agreed to photograph our Winter Wedding in January at Elmore Court, neither my fiancé nor I really like having our picture taken so we weren’t sure how we would handle being papped all day! We needn’t have worried! Rob did a truly amazing job of putting everyone at their ease and getting some amazing shots. So many of our guests have commented that the photos were brilliant and have asked about our photographer. I honestly couldn’t be happier with the shots, thank you so much Rob! Alice and Sam x” – Alice & Sam – Elmore Court, Gloucester

Bibury Wedding Photography

“I am a bit of a researcher and our wedding photos were of the same importance as my dress. I spent a LOT of time online looking at photographers and kept coming back to Rob and looking at his amazing pictures and bit the bullet and booked him. What a great decision that was! From the moment we met him we felt at ease and just knew we would end up with great pics. He made me feel very comfortable on the day (I don’t really like having my picture taken!), and most of the time I didn’t even know that he was there snapping away. A quick turnaround editing the images and the USB arriving in the most beautiful presentation box, we got to relive the day all over again. The day went so fast and Rob you captured each moment – it felt like we were there again. I don’t think ‘thank you’ quite covers it! Don’t waste your time with hours of research like I did, just book him!”  Clare & Eden – The Swan at Bibury

Great Tythe Barn Review

“Just had our first look at Rob’s photos of our big day. We couldn’t be happier with them and we’re just so grateful to Rob – such a talented, professional photographer and an all round great guy to have around, to boot!  If you’re considering booking Rob for your big day – stop considering and just do it! He’s been amazing from start to finish and we couldn’t have asked for more from our photographer.  Thank you, Rob. Thank you thank you thank you.”  Heather & John – Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

Hyde Barn Review

“Brilliant photographer and an all around great guy! Thanks for photographing our wedding yesterday. We had such an amazing day and you were a big part of that! Made the photos so easy and relaxed – HUGE recommendation from me! Thanks for sharing our day with us Rob”  Robyn & Bill – Hyde Barn, Stow On The Wold

Broadway Wedding Review

“Words cannot express how much we love the pictures! They are beautiful! We are so happy to have worked with you. Glad we choose you for the first pictures of our new family to be!  Thanks so much for everything.”  Ileana & Jose, Broadway Engagement Shoot

Cotswold Wedding Images

“Rob was simply fantastic at our wedding at the Great Tythe Barn. Every single one of the hundreds of edited photos that we got we loved – we haven’t found a moment that he missed.  Throughout the day he did whatever we wanted, following us and snapping it all. There was no shouting / bossing the groups around and he blended into the background and worked away. We hate posing for photos but Rob made us feel at ease throughout. It was like having another nice guest at the wedding!!  We also had the day filmed by Indah Wedding Films – the three of them worked seamlessly together and are an amazing match. In summary, you cannot go far wrong if you get Rob to photograph your day. Thank you so much!!” Rachel & Gordon – Rodborough Church & Great Tythe Barn

Elmore Court Wedding Review

“Rob photographed our wedding at Elmore Court in June this year and we couldn’t be happier with the photos. The pictures really capture the mood of the day with lots of fab candid shots of guests laughing (and crying) , dancing. I know we will look back at these photos for years to come and be transported back to our wedding day.

So many guests commented on what a relaxed and lovely guy Rob was, and that he seemed to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time – a very talented photographer! He also put my husband and I at ease during the couple shots which was great. Massive thanks Rob!” – Laureen & Matt – Elmore Court, Gloucester

Hare & Hounds Hotel Tetbury

“From the first time that we met Rob he was laid back and professional, which gave you a sense that everything will be fine and dandy. Similar to an aeroplane pilot when they speak over the tannoy, giving you the reassurance that you’re in safe hands.  That’s exactly how Rob was when shooting for our special day.  He let us direct ourselves and we let him direct us.  This worked out to be the perfect combination to get the shots that we wanted and the shots that Rob knew would work best.  We are simply blown away by his photography and his cool, smooth & calm personality. It was a great honour to work with him, we wish we could do it all over again. We will always keep him in mind for the future. We would definitely recommend him to a friend.  Thank you so much again Rob – Abby & Luke x” – Abby & Luke – Hare & Hounds, Tetbury

Elmore Court Review

“Rob photographed our bonfire night wedding and we honestly couldn’t be happier with the photos. Our family and friends love them too and we have had so many compliments on how beautiful, stunning, wonderful and amazing the photos are, but also how natural and relaxed we look in them.

From the outset Rob was extremely professional and always very helpful, making suggestions and answering any questions we had along the way extremely promptly, and often suggesting things we hadn’t even though of. We were particularly impressed with how thorough Rob was both prior to and on the big day. Indeed, on the day Rob was calm, relaxed and friendly as always, which was definitely appreciated as I felt quite nervous. Several members of the wedding party and other guests mentioned how easy he was to get along with, but also how unobtrusive he was, which meant he got some amazing natural shots. Finally, we couldn’t believe how long Rob stayed with us around 13 hours in total, from the wedding preparations in the morning, right through to the fireworks and dancing late into the evening and felt he really captured the essence of the day.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rob and were so pleased to have him there to capture our big day” Philippa and Chris, Elmore Court

Hyde House Rob Tarren Photography

“After booking our wedding venue we were made aware of Rob and as soon as I saw his photos I loved his work. Rob is great, he’s so friendly and calm, on the morning of getting ready he was lovely to have around. Such a professional, knew what he wanted to take photos off and took shots of all the details. He got on great with our guests as well as having great feedback from all the other companies I had around setting up various things. He was happy to take photos of what we asked for as well as being creative with his other shots. We’ve just recently had them returned, very quick, and I love every single one. Captured our day perfectly. I cannot recommend and thank Rob enough!” – Sammi & Andrew – Hyde House, Stow on the Wold

Great Tythe Barn Photography Review

“One of the main reasons we chose Rob was because we loved his natural style of photography. We didn’t really want many formal photos but wanted the essence of the day captured. And he did this to perfection.  He was completely unobtrusive and is a bloody nice guy so you feel completely relaxed around him.  It was also really important to us that our 3 year old daughter would be comfortable around him and that was completely evident when Rob arranged a pre-wedding shoot at the venue. She completely adored him and did everything he asked of her (unlike she does for us!!) so as well as wedding photography I can completely vouch for him as a children’s photographer too!”  Helen & Simon, Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

Cain Manor Wedding Review

“Rob! WOW! We absolutely love these, you’ve captured the day perfectly.  Thanks again for your terrific effort on the day and this amazing result, we couldn’t be happier.  We both just wanted to say a massive thank you for your hard work on Friday. You were exactly what we wanted – keeping a low profile but also getting us organised into the shots we wanted. Lots of the guests also remarked about what a fantastic photographer you were!”  Lynda & Michael – Cain Manor, Hampshire

Great Tythe Barn Confetti

“Rob, thank you just doesn’t seem great enough for our amazing wedding photos.  The engagement shoot was fun and you made us both feel so relaxed.  We knew then that you would be wonderful at the wedding.  In the nicest possible way, we didn’t even notice you were there on the day.  You managed to take beautiful photos of things that we didn’t even see to appreciate!  You captured our wedding perfectly and we are so grateful for that.  I can’t stop looking at the photos as each time I see something different and they all tell a story. You are an absolute star! Thank you! With love Emma and Pete xxx” – Emma and Pete, Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury

Hyde Barn Wedding Review

“Rob is not your average wedding photographer, he will go above and beyond to ensure that your most special moments last forever. From the second he arrives to the dancing, he is 100% committed to you and your day and this is beautifully evident in his work.  Rob has an incredible talent for capturing a feeling in a photograph. Every time I look back through my wedding photos, I am immediately transported back to the day and can remember exactly how I felt in each and every one. His attention to detail is exceptional and he will capture snippets of the day that you will undoubtedly miss.”  Alisa & Andy – Hyde Barn, Stow On The Wold

Stone Barn

“Dear Rob, we are over the moon with the photos.  You captured the day perfectly and caught all of the most important and precious moments.  You were such a calming influence and made us feel completely at ease.  We were also very impressed with the efficiency of the delivery of the photos!  Thank you so much for everything!” Olivia & Jack – Stone Barn, Upper Windrush

Stone Barn Wedding Review

“We booked Rob after seeing the photos he’d taken for our friends wedding a number of years ago. He photographed our wedding at the start of August 2017. We knew they would be good but to put it simply, my wife and I were both in tears when we received them – Looking through each of the photos brought us both back to our special day so vividly it’s incredible. – Rob is easily the best in the business and is so lovely to deal with and speak to I would never hesitate to recommend him to anyone! Thank you Mr Tarren, you’re awesome! With Love, Mr & Mrs Greenwood” – Emma & Chris – Stone Barn, Upper Windrush, Cheltenham

Greenway Hotel and Spa Wedding Review

“Oh Rob! We’ve just spent the last hour going through each of the beautiful photos you took of our wedding. There are not enough words to describe how amazing they are! They are beautiful, creative and simply stunning. Each one tells a story and you’ve captured our day perfectly. If we said thank you from now until our final days it would not be enough to convey our gratitude to you for your phenomenal work. After this whole wonderful experience we feel like you are a dear friend and we hope we will stay in touch. We are sure there will be many more occasions in our future where we would love to work with you again. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything. Much love James and Verity Xxx” James & Verity, Greenway Hotel & Spa, Cheltenham

Frogmill Inn Wedding Review

“Rob was absolutely brilliant in every way possible. So many special personal pictures were taken, he managed to capture so many happy memories that a lot of photographers miss.  He was always quick to respond if we had any questions during the build up to the wedding. The wedding pre-shoot was a fab idea, not only did we get a good feel for the venue, we got some lovely photos.”  Laura & Dan – The Frogmill, Cheltenham

Dumbleton Hall Wedding Photography

“Wow we LOVE our photos, thank you so much!! You really have captured the day and it’s amazing to be able to look back over the whole day in pictures other than our own memories. The family pics are amazing too, we are very happy with how they turned out and the church captures the feeling.  Everything, we absolutely love!  Captured every moment of our day beautifully, from dusk til dawn, a true gent, even helped the bridesmaids with my veil. All of our friends have said our wedding photos are STUNNING! Highly highly recommended.  Rob, thank you dearly xxx” – Jo and Jon – Dumbleton Hall, Worcestershire

Elmore Court Summer Wedding

“We wanted to send you a note to say thank you so much for your amazing efforts on the day.  We are thrilled by the results and will treasure the photos you took for years to come.  You were so kind and easy going throughout the whole day and we couldn’t have wished for a more chilled out fun atmosphere, so thank you so much!”  Alex & Richard, Elmore Court, Gloucester

“Dear Rob, just a little note to say a huge ‘thank you!’ for being part of our wedding day!  Adam and I are completely blown away by just how beautiful the photos turned out and it was an absolute joy to have you around on our big day.  We are just so sad that we can’t do the whole thing all over again!  With love, Georgie and Adam” – Georgie and Adam, St James the Great and The Great Tythe Barn

Priston Mill Wedding

“Dear Rob, thank you so much for our fantastic wedding pictures!  We were overwhelmed when we received them on our honeymoon.  You captured everything so beautifully and really made us feel at ease.  We really appreciated all the effort you went into, the pictures are now printed and hung everywhere around the house!  Thanks again!” – Charlotte & Rob – Priston Mill, Bath

Matara Centre Wedding Photos

“Rob was brilliant and all the guests loved him. So friendly and and relaxed which exactly what I wanted. We also didn’t want lots of posed formal photos so Rob’s style was perfect. We now have the perfect mix of fun photos with a few classic shots to please the family. Rob was so patient – letting us have fun with the photos and those of my now husband pulling faces and photo bombing my bridesmaids are among my favourites. Rob also arrived while I was getting ready and didn’t leave until after the first dance, capturing moments I was too drunk to remember or take in properly!  The photos came quickly and on a lovely memory stick. Rob is an absolute delight- can’t recommend him highly enough. Would book him again in a heart beat” – Emma & Rob, Matara Centre, Kingscote
