Full Description
I like and love a lot of things in life, especially weddings. I love couples who laugh, who are not perfectionists, don’t take things too seriously, who just want to enjoy their wedding day. As said, I love my job, it gives me that unique opportunity to re-tell your wedding day through beautiful images – I want you to relive your anticipations, your laughter, your tears everytime you see your wedding photos – ‘Your Wedding Story’. If you are looking for a well-established wedding photographer, I have been serving my clients for 11 years now. My photography style has become known to many of my clients as ‘balanced’. Natural candid photography with just the right amount of family group and portrait photos – a mostly free-flowing day with a little time away from your guests. COULD I BE THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOU? Do you like: the idea of a mostly free-flowing wedding day so that you can focus on enjoying and celebrating one of the most important days of your life… with occasional time for photographs… you are looking for a few group images so that you don’t forget who shared your day with you… And you want stunningly beautiful bride and groom portraits that will take your breath away … Then, I’d be a great match!

Paul is most definitely one in a million.
There are a million wedding photographers in the world but Paul is most definitely one in a million. My husband and I had a very small and intimate wedding of just ourselves and two witnesses. Paul captured the day with such precision and beauty, the locations we were taken to in the Lake District were like nothing I have ever seen in wedding photos before, they literally could be straight out of a magazine. As for Paul himself, his relaxed attitude mixed with his dry and witty sense of humor made our emotions show through in our photographs. Paul also made an incredible montage of photos with a perfect song to go with it and believe me, everyone for everyone who has watched it there was not a dry eye between them. Thank you so much Paul for capturing our perfect day. We cannot stress how much we recommend Paul to capture your big day. Melanie & Darren x

I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone
It was my mum who found Paul whilst doing some wedding research, after a few emails back and forth we had a video chat with Paul and talked all things wedding, he even showed us some of his photos that he has taken of other weddings and he looked and sounded very professional. After a final meeting about how the day would pan out and the group shots we wanted the day was finally here, Paul came round to my parent's house first and took some photos of us there, he then went onto the venue and took any shots he wanted there. He was very professional and wasn't pushy at all, he made us all feel very comfortable and he took the photos that he wanted. Everyone who was there said how lovely Paul was and how amazing the pictures have turned out. I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone looking for a photographer for their special day, thank you again.

Our photos are amazing
Paul is such a talented photographer. Booking him is one of the best decisions we made for our special day. We instantly felt at ease with him and as people who don't like getting pictures taken, he made us feel so comfortable. Our photos are amazing and we are still deciding which ones we want as there are so so many beautiful photos of our special day. I'd recommend Paul to anyone planning a wedding, you won't regret it he is an outstanding photographer and lovely man. Thanks Paul.

What do I recommend about Paul Swift ..EVERYTHING
What do I recommend about Paul Swift Photography.... EVERYTHING!!! We can't thank Paul enough for what he did on our wedding day. From stepping in at the last minute to capture our day to the last shot of the night he was calm, professional, and polite. Paul's communication on the run-up to the day was timed in perfectly, it was like he knew within minutes of thinking something in our heads! Within 2 minutes the message ping went off and there he was! Crazy!! Every one of our guests and family couldn't praise him enough, we didn't see behind the scenes on the day but every guest said he was always where he needed to be to capture a picture. And from seeing our pics we know exactly what they mean. If anyone is after a natural, relaxed, and beautiful style of pictures for their special occasion then Paul is most definitely your man. Thanks so much, Paul for everything you did for us on our special day, you truly are the best in the business. Love Mr & Mrs Morris

Paul put us and our guests at ease
We booked Paul for our December wedding after coming across his website whilst researching. We had a no-obligation meet up with him and were put at ease straight away. We had a chance to discuss our day, our hopes for the photography and have a look at samples of his work and sample albums to get a feel for and see the style of the photos. We were impressed and booked him straight away! We never looked back and are really happy with our decision. We opted for a pre-wedding shoot, which I would recommend if, like us, you are not always at ease in front of a camera. This was also a great afternoon and we were able to get some great shots, which we have since purchased. On the wedding day itself, Paul put us and our guests at ease and we now have some fantastic memories of our special day. The gallery being available to look at all your photos is such a great feeling as you relive the day. The album is great quality and we enjoy looking through it, we made it pretty big but it is amazing and looks fab in its presentation box. Thank you so much, Paul. If anyone is looking for a wedding photographer then I would not hesitate in recommending you to contact Paul xxx

Captured so many perfect images
Paul is brilliant at what he does, he made everyone feel relaxed and helped to make our wedding day run smoothly and perfectly. We got married on Friday so won’t have our final pictures for a couple of weeks, but Paul has already given us over 40 sneak preview pictures which are absolutely perfect! Thankyou so much! Amazing photographer. Captured so many perfect images that we will treasure forever x
