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!

He makes guests feel comfortable and works efficiently.
Friendly, professional, punctual, meticulous, skillful... these are probably just some of the attributes you look for in a wedding photographer. Paul could be accurately described as every one of those above words. If I had to pick one area which really, really stood out, I would say Paul really offers a personal and friendly photography experience. He takes the time to listen to you as a couple and discuss all aspects of the day. He has a fountain of knowledge that can be drawn upon for help with all aspects of the wedding. His work speaks for its self so there is no need for me to say anything further on that. You can see how his work is sublime. An image doesn't tell you how Paul conducts himself. Paul is able to work with everyone to capture what is needed. He makes guests feel comfortable and works efficiently. Make no mistake, his efficiency does not compromise quality. Words cannot really do him justice, you need to reach out to him and see what he is about. So, thank you Paul for capturing mine and my wife's wedding day. In the whirlwind of the day and the months that follow, the memories can start to fade. One look at the photos brings all the happiness back.

photos are beyond stunning and will treasure them for years to come!
Literally aren’t enough words to express how thankful myself and my husband David were to have Paul as our photographer for our wedding. Due to Covid our original date was postponed, Paul agreed to do our new date and then even moved childcare around when we suddenly had to bring our wedding forward 10 days early due to lockdown 2.0 Not only did he capture our day absolutely perfectly but really helped and reassured us every step of the way. Paul, you are a top bloke and we’re so lucky to have met you! Our photos are beyond stunning and will treasure them for years to come! We can’t wait to book more shoots in the future next one for our little sausage dog Dexter. Xx

he was fun, made us laugh and feel at ease and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.
We are so pleased we secured Paul as our Photographer who was recommended to us by my sister who had already booked him for her wedding next year. After seeing our photos and meeting Paul properly, she is so looking forward to her day and is confident she made the right choice. He has done us proud and given us some amazing memories captured perfectly that we will cherish and look back on time after time. Due to personal circumstances, our wedding was arranged in 3 weeks and it was so important to us that we had lovely photos capturing special moments throughout the day. The happiness, fun, laughter and emotions he caught within the photos remind us of just how special that day was for us every time we view the photos. We couldn’t be happier. Paul is such a talented and experienced Photographer with some amazing tricks to gain perfect lighting effects which gave us some amazing photos. We would have no hesitation in recommending him, he is a lovely man with a heart of gold and clearly loves what he does, he was fun, made us laugh and feel at ease and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Thank you Paul.

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.
