    Superb quality, and a wonderful relaxed photographer

    Paul was fantastic - he met us prior to the wedding at the venue to talk about our plans for the day, any ideal shots we wanted and get to know us. On the day he was very organised, professional and blended into the background very smoothly, allowing guests to relax and mingle without interruption. We got our group shots when we were ready and some romantic walk photos but this didn't take long or cut into the day at all. We asked for a few specific shots like sparklers and group shots from above, which Paul got with no problems at all.

    The editing and turnaround was less than two weeks, we got some amazing sample shots on the next day to share with friends and family, and the quality of finished pics is top notch - very well edited and sharply focused.

    I would 100% recommend Paul as a photographer and was delighted we got to have him their for our wedding day.

    Paul Thomas Heath Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Sophie. It was an amazing day, and such a beautiful location. It was great meeting and working with you both from start to finish. All the very best for the future. Paul

    Photography Excellence

    Paul captured our day perfectly with a mixture of formal and informal photos. Paul was professional, extremely caring and most importantly discreet, I didn’t see him take half the photos he captured, which made looking at them even better. Paul worked with us before the wedding, so he got a flavour of what we were looking for and he got it spot on.
    We’ve only been married for two weeks and have already received the online gallery and all 850 pictures on a USB so we can print off as many as we like. There’s no limit to what you can print or where you print them.
    We couldn’t recommend Paul enough, it’s like having one more guest at your wedding, really friendly person and joined in our day. Amazing value for money.

    Absolutely amazing

    Paul was incredible! He made the whole experience of organising this part of our wedding super easy by being so flexible and reliable. He slotted into our wedding with ease - our guests thought he was great and the photos produced have been better than we ever could have imagined! Paul managed to turn our wedding pictures around in two weeks - amazing considering we got married a week before Christmas. Thank you Paul!!

    Paul Thomas Heath Photography's reply:

    Thanks so much, Zach. It was a pleasure working with you and Harriett. I wish you all the very best for the future. Hope the photographs bring back many happy memories of an amazing day. Paul

    Simply Fantastic 🥰

    My husband and I got married a few months ago and whilst we interviewed a number of photographers, none came close to Paul.
    Selecting your photographer is a big deal, not only for the photos but also because they'll be there with you every step of the day.
    Paul immediately made us feel at ease and we gelled with him so well. He was so easy to get on with and there was no ice to break whatsoever.
    My husband and I both knew that it had to be him and he lived up to every expectation on the day.
    It was a long one and whilst he must have been exhausted by the end he seemed to continue his bright energy and chatty demeanour long into the evening.
    The photos are just beautiful and we have so many of them that capture every perfect moment of a once in a lifetime day.
    Thank you so much Paul!

    Paul Thomas Heath Photography's reply:

    Thanks EJ. It was a lovely day that I will remember for a long time. All the very best to you and James. Paul

    Paul Became Part of the Wedding Party!

    Paul was fantastic from the 1st time we contacted him, due to covid we rearranged 3 times, and Paul never increased his price or changed what we had agreed unlike other providers we had engaged. He is very prompt in replying to your queries and questions. We met with Paul at our home a couple of weeks before our wedding and we outlined what photos we would like, Paul made loads of notes and made loads of suggestions too. On the day Paul met me in the hairdresser's in the village where we live and we started from there, Paul was always one step ahead of the bridal party, he was seen popping up in the most funny situations, hedges along the lane to the church, running in front of and behind the horse and carriage, hanging out of upstairs windows at the country house, stopping the traffic on the bridge at Wareham to get the shots we'd asked for. We seated him amongst our guests during the meal as he worked up such an appetite! He felt that he was really included as part of the day being able to eat with us too. He has an amazing personality, very patient and great fun, he was such a part of our day that our guests thought he was part of our family! I would highly recommend him! You get your photos in an online gallery you can share with anyone, and also a USB stick with high specification for printing yourself, there is also an option to purchase from Paul, but he is not pushy at all, you are very much in control of what you would like to do.

    The best photographer we could have found!

    We are so happy that we found Paul, he was an absolute delight to work with both in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. He must have run a marathon on our wedding day just keeping up with the groomsmen on the way to the ceremony and photographing them from every angle!
    Our guests are still raving about how good he was two weeks later. We feel as though we’ve made a new friend and it was a pleasure to have him there on our special day.
    We received our photo gallery earlier than expected and all the photos are wonderful.
    Thank you so much Paul!

    Beyond expectations

    Paul is an amazing photographer, I don't have a bad word to say about my experience with him photographing my wedding. He helped me organise and put me at ease through the whole process. He was friendly and approachable for all my guests young and old, I really can't thank him enough for the amazing memories he's given us xx

    Excellent Experience

    Our day was made so much easier and more special thanks to Paul's enthusiasm and efforts. From the start of our day to the very end he was constantly striving to capture our day in the best way whilst also accommodating requests and being great with the kids. Without a doubt we would recommend Paul to any of our friends and family getting married. Cannot thank him enough for his efforts and the end product.

    Our day would not have been the same without Paul

    Paul is absolutely amazing. Don’t have a wedding without him!!

    Due to the Covid restrictions we had to have a ‘micro wedding’ with only 12 guests. Having Paul there really made the day.
    I’d had a Zoom chat with him prior to the wedding as he wanted to make sure he took the kind of shots I wanted. I wanted a lot of natural unposed shots.
    Paul was constantly busy and all my guests said how lovely and amazing he was on the day.
    I cannot recommend him enough!!!

    Paul Thomas Heath Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Jane. Was a pleasure to capture your day and I’m glad we managed to bring the sunshine out at just the right time too. Really loved every moment of your wedding. Wishing you both all the best for the future. Congratulations once again. Paul.

    What an incredible experience

    Took a chance and went for a photographer based on the app recommendations, rather than family and friends and I would do it 100 times over. Paul was incredibly attentive and listened to everything that myself and my partner wanted from our wedding. Unfortunately due to Covid, we had to postpone but Paul was amazing and nothing was ever too much of a trouble. We spent loads of time walking through the venue to look at potential photo opportunities and if we ever wanted to change anything, it was always possible. From when the bridal party were getting ready, to the first look, to the speeches, Paul was always there, capturing the best photos but never noticed. If you’re looking for a completely stress free and relaxed experience, definitely go with Paul! We have just received our photo gallery and we’re flawed at how beautiful the photos are.

    Paul was awesome to have around! Exceeded our expectations of the quality and overall experience of a wedding photographer.

    Paul exceeded our expectations of the quality and overall experience of a wedding photographer. He was professional, super comfortable to be around and generally an all round nice guy. We had so much fun and he captured some very special moments between friends & family. Paul was engaging, easy to contact and offered zooms or face to face meeting to go over what we would like. He was flexible, we wasnt too sure on what we specifically wanted but on the day Paul went with the flow and it worked out perfectly Couldn't of asked for any one better. Highly recommended! You will not be disappointed. Thanks Paul, Adelle & Frank.

    Paul Thomas Heath Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Adelle, it was an absolute pleasure. Wishing you both all the happiness in the world. All the very best, Paul.

    Brilliant photographer

    We are so pleased we chose Paul as our wedding photographer. He was great fun to have around on the wedding day, very professional but also made us feel really comfortable. The guests even commented on how lovely he was. The photos are so beautiful, and he captured the atmosphere of the day perfectly. A huge thank you Paul!

    Really good service. Paul walked around the venue with me and made sure we got all the pictures we wanted and more and was very approachable for guests to ask for even more pictures. Have just received the photos & very happy with them all - love the service with the usb stick & way it was received - was a lovely touch will let it be a surprise. Would definitely recommend Paul to capture the perfect photos of your special day. Thank you so much!!

    Absolutely outstanding!!!

    We stumbled across Paul whilst he was doing a promotion on Facebook so We took at look at his work liked what we saw so we gave him a message and from that day he has been fantastic, we had to change our date 3 times due to Covid and every time he was prompt in getting back to us and changing over our dates . On the wedding day he was absolutely outstanding, kind, funny and very understanding. We are not usually ones who enjoy having photos but paul made us feel so comfortable and relaxed and made it fun . By the end of our day so many guests commented on what a great guy he and actually felt like he was a friend at the wedding.
    We highly recommend this guy he was absolutely outstanding, will definitely be booking again for our 10 year anniversary.
