Truly amazing

By far one of the best choices we made for our wedding was having Paul there , he was amazing all day and night, we spoke for just under a year and really got to know him , nothing was to much for him and all my guests commented on how amazing he was and how lucky we were to get such amazing photos, my friend has also now booked him , you won鈥檛 regret having him as part of your day xx

Charismatic photography

Paul is great at what he does. We booked him after seeing him in action at a friends wedding. He interacts with the wedding party extremely well and brings fun and laughter to his work. Most of the time I didn鈥檛 realise he was taking those intimate photos (I鈥檓 not too keen on having pics taken either) however we have been sent an array of lovely pics we can cherish forever. Thank you Paul!

Paul Heath Photographer

Paul was our wedding photographer on 4th October 2023 and words cannot express how happy we were with him. He was so caring, thoughtful and professional. He blended in with our guests and he captured the day perfectly. His service was fantastic and the quality of photo鈥檚 just perfect. We cannot thank him enough, it was a huge weight off our shoulders knowing we were in safe hands and our memories cherished. I would thoroughly recommend Paul to respect and depict the most important day in many lives. He sure did us proud!

I would like to recommend Paul, I found he was excellent at what he does. He met us before our wedding, and he was very good at putting us at our ease and made it comfortable for our ceremony. Very good value for money, and the service he gave was excellent. The pictures turned out very well, and we also had a usb stick as well as being on the gallery. We would recommend Paul and will to any one who is getting married. Gary and Jill Hinton

Amazing Experience!

Our experience with Paul has been absolutely amazing. I found him right here on Hitched and thought the reviews sounded lovely and got in touch. He was responsive in good time and got us booked in for our date.
We had a meeting with Paul prior to our wedding, just to get to know each other and what we want from our day and just from that interaction I knew it was going to be great.
Paul blended in so well with everyone at the wedding. From the getting ready pictures, us girls all felt comfortable with him and we got so many amazing natural shots. He was so kind as well, to help to carry some stuff over to the venue that we forgot to bring the night before as we couldn't bring it in the wedding car. Super helpful and thoughtful!
He took all the formal shots we wanted, which we absolutely loved. And the candid, natural shots were so beautiful! How he captured so many touching moments, we don't know how he did it. My husband said he was like a ninja as we had no idea he was getting those shots!
He was so down to earth and all the guests loved him. He felt like such a part of our family and friends that everyone was shouting "BYE PAUL!" when he was leaving in the night. He also didn't just leave right after the first dance. He stayed around and captured some amazing moments on the dancefloor as well.
Overall, super happy with the experience and would highly recommend Paul if you're looking for a skillful, friendly, approachable and creative wedding photographer.

A perfect day with Paul

Paul was the best photographer for our wedding in June. He was so easy to work with and made me and George feel relaxed and he was also extremely good fun! I highly recommend him if you鈥檙e looking for a photographer in the south.

Can't recommend highly enough

Paul was absolutely fabulous on our wedding day. He had the perfect balance of being involved to ensure the right shots were captured, but knew when to stay out the way for those personal moments. The photos we've received are STUNNING and he has been so professional and communicative the whole time. He made us feel at ease, listened to what we wanted, and also proposed his recommendations - which obviously resulted in the most stunning shots. Can't recommend him enough.

Everything we hoped for!

Paul made it so easy for us to enjoy our wedding day with no worries as he was professional and very friendly. His communication before, during and after the day was amazingly clear and effective meaning we could be flexible throughout the day and get all the gorgeous photos that we wished for. The photos are immaculate and bring us so much joy!

EXCEPTIONAL wedding photographer

I was almost sceptical of all Paul's reviews being 5 stars... But now I see exactly why. Paul could not have been better, he was AMAZING from start to finish. Brilliant photos, witty, friendly guy to have around that put everyone at ease from the get go. All our wedding guests LOVED him and he felt like an extra very welcome guest throughout the day. The photos came back promptly and I have been recommending him to everyone. Paul - we cannot thank you enough. You made a huge and lasting impact on our special day.

Paul captured our day(s) perfectly, attending our intimate ceremony last year and our celebration this year with all the family. Paul is so relaxed and let's you do exactly what you want - there is no pressure which is just perfect. We are so pleased with all of our photos from both events. You will receive your photos promptly after the event and Paul is always quick to respond to you. He is 100% the best decision we made for our special day(s)! Thank you Paul 馃槉
