Paul is very good at remaining in the background...
Paul is very good at remaining in the background. Hardly noticed he was there which kent he got some brilliant natural shots. Also beforehand, we met at the venue and went through what we did and didn't want/expect. His photos just seem to have something extra! His coloured photos have an extra pop and his black and white pics are the reason we chose him though. The contrast he get and enhances is very special!

From the moment I set eyes on the Stylish Wedding...
From the moment I set eyes on the Stylish Wedding Photography Facebook page I was blown away. Paul was quick to get in touch with us and throughout was extremely knowledgable, professional and friendly, going above and beyond. Paul understood the type of wedding we wanted and made some excellent suggestions and recommendations which helped contribute to the success of the day. The finished product was phenomenal and the pictures are better than I could have ever imaged. Highly Recommended

We chose Paul...
We chose Paul and Carol because of their unique style of photography - it was just what we were after and they certainly did not disappoint! They were both extremely professional yet personable and it was great to have them with us on the day. We are so pleased with our photos and would recommend Stylish Wedding Photography to any future couples looking for those photos which will capture the emotion and details of their day perfectly!

So happy with our photographer...
So happy with our photographer! We now have beautiful images that captured exactly how we remember our day! Some images capture the emotion of the moment perfectly, and others are beautiful works of art. The photographers were unintrusive making us all feel very comfortable with them being there. And the photo story of our photo album allows us to re-live the best day of our lives through each moment. We can't thank them and recommend them enough!

SWP were absolutely perfect...
SWP were absolutely perfect, I can't thank them enough for capturing our beautiful wedding in the best way. The photos really represented the feel of the day, they got shots of absolutely everything, and I didn't even notice they were there until they came to say bye at the end of the night! The photos are perfect, not a bad angle, fat arm or weird eye blink in sight (always a problem with me!). They also fit in with my many requests, and just went with us on the day when all timings changed. 😍

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding has memorable moments. Spending the full day with a couple and seeing those moments, capturing them beautifully for all time is what makes the job of being a wedding photographer so special.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unobtrusive, Natural, Candid, Documentary, Stylish

What about your business are you most proud of?

The quality of work we produce at every wedding and the fact that we are always unobtrusive and our couples really appreciate that.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't judge your wedding photographer on price. Ask to see at least 3 full weddings and see if that photographer can reproduce the same style on images over and over again. On the day itself - the best thing you can do is to relax and enjoy your wedding. That makes for great images.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Couples that enjoy their wedding day and are in love.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After the initial booking, when the wedding is approaching I like to meet couples at their venue and give them a quick walkthrough of the day and what to expect of me. On the day itself, there is nothing they need to do to improve their pictures - they simply need to enjoy their wedding.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

No photo is more important than any other. Great wedding photography is about a set of images - not one image. I never promise any certain image to a couple - it might not happen. First Kiss for example, I've been to weddings where they've not kissed - my job is to record what happens - I never ever pose a picture. Even couple portraits are shot in a very relaxed way. Images should be natural - not forced.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I really hope my couples don't feel the need to ask me to take any particular image. My job is to document their day - not pose it. So I'd really rather they let me make beautiful images from what I see in front of me. The one's that forget this and do ask for something - it's never original, wedding photographers have seen it all before.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

A large white umbrella and a pair of wellington boots (nice clean one's).

Describe how you got into photography.

Got interest in photography at a serious level at around 20 years old. At age 23 I left my office job to travel to Italy to study to become a fashion photographer at a college there. Then spent around 7 years assisting some of the world's top fashion photographers, followed by 18 years shooting my own work for UK fashion and Wedding Magazines. Started shooting weddings 5 years ago. Have been a professional photographer now for 21 years and in the professional photographic industry for 28 years.
