Last update: May 2024

Paul Gapper Wedding Photography is located in Wimbledon and proudly holds numerous awards. Paul has established himself as an esteemed provider within the wedding industry, he is a leading supporter of inclusion and diversity and has skilfully documented over 400 weddings, many from diverse backgrounds. He dedicates his time to capturing the enchanting moments filled with love, laughter, and tears of joy. He knows where to be at the right time, when to stay in the background and when to step forward to capture those special moments and how to help everyone feel comfortable so he can capture the day in an unobtrusive way.

How it started

Photography is an enormously important part of his life and has been ever since he bought his first camera to travel to India many years ago. It's his passion to create intoxicating imagery, weave captivating stories, and to help create the visual legacy of all of his couples. He gained much of his expertise whilst working for The World Religious Photo Library, where he had to research his subject matter in great depth, which often led to forging significant personal contacts in diverse religious and secular communities. With over 15 years as a wedding, travel, and documentary photographer, you can expect someone who is an expert, knowledgeable, someone who cares, gets on well with people, integrates with your guests and gets on well with your nearest and dearest!

What are weddings?

It's all about good people, good music and throwing a wild party that everyone will remember for life! That's why he will bring an informal style that lets you make the most of it all in the moment. The question he often gets asked is, do you know the couple, are you a friend? That's because he’s basically like an extra guest, just with a couple of cameras and loads of back up equipment of course!

Paul - Independently the best!

Paul, I don't think there is a box big enough for how amazing you are. Right from our first phone call, to our first meet and our wedding no other words to describe you than amazing! You couldn't have made me and my husband feel more at ease if you tried! Your professionalism, time, directions to capture perfection, patience, friendly personality is massively missed! Looking back at all our photo's we have every memory and moment in each slide, you did not rush us, you guided us and you remember we are not naturally photoshoot prepared individuals and laughed with us too! Your flower knowledge is massively missed - especially as summer is blooming. I do apologise this is a little late, but we will be in touch shortly as we have something as a token of our appreciation for you! We'll be in touch later in the year, we'll be needing you again! We really hope you continue to have all success come your way, and we have not stopped recommending you. Massive thank you and appreciation for our gift from you too! Shanice & Romario, 05/03/24

Highly recommend Paul!!

We meet Paul at the Lambeth wedding fair 2023 and I looked Paul up on my hitched app and read his reviews! I messaged him to book him straight away one of the best decisions we made. I felt that Paul is a very relaxed and calm person and did not rush us when he is was taking our pictures. Paul highly recommended doing an engagement photos session and he was right! We were camera shy people but looking at our beautiful wedding pictures I see two relaxed, natural looking couple looking at the camera. We absolutely love our pictures and cannot wait to work with you to put them in our Wedding album. Thank you Paul

Super wedding photographer

We chose Paul to be our wedding photographer after meeting at a wedding fair, and couldn't have been happier with our choice! We got to know him a bit better at an engagement shoot at our venue on a rainy Saturday morning, and he was great at loosening us up and making us appear more natural and have fun with the photos, despite the mud and weather.
On the wedding day itself, his work was exemplary, and he really got the vibe of our day, capturing every minute in a natural, candid way, as well as patiently working through the more traditional staged group shots we wanted.
Paul was a joy to work with for all stages of the planning and the day proper, and delivered our final edited shots right on time. The personalised album and USB in their presentation case are something we will cherish as a reminder of our beautiful day!
Many thanks - Emma and George

Paul captured the whole personality of our wedding and our guests

Paul was an absolute wizard, he managed to capture the personalities and the full character of the wedding day through the photos. Brad and I really wanted to ensure the photos were candid and less staged, and really caught every guest 'in action': hugging, laughing, socialising. Paul has given us memories of a lifetime with our elderly grandparents dancing, our nearest and dearest friends laughing, and our parents having a little cry as we said our vows.

Paul was so professional, and always contactable if we had any questions or requests, and he knew how to make us feel comfortable (despite both being very camera shy!) Couldn't recommend Paul enough - thank you Paul!

Our day was captured in beautiful photographs...

Paul was friendly from the moment we first met. He gave me helpful advice and made recommendations. There was no pressure to hire him. I found him easy to get along with, responsive to my queries and eventually hired him for our wedding. Paul took beautiful pictures without being intrusive during our wedding ceremony and reception. He displayed a level of thoughtfulness and care which came through in our pictures. I would definitely recommend Paul!

Outstanding throughout with amazing quality of photos

Paul is very friendly and professional and most importantly he really listens to what you want out of the final photos. On the run up to the wedding day, communication was excellent with regular emails and a scheduled zoom call to discuss everything in more detail. On the day Paul captured absolutely beautiful photos and moments throughout. The amount and quality is second to none. He was great at helping organise group photos and also very skilled at capturing some of those special action moments throughout. All of the guests commented on his openness and genuine warmth also.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and have not enough words to recommend Paul for your wedding celebrations!

Amazing, professional and great quality photos

Paul is great he would snap away all day getting genuine reactions from ourselves and our guests but also he captured some lovely ‘staged’ photos that we wanted and they have come out better than we expected. Definitely would recommend Paul

Blown away!

We have just seen the photos from our wedding and are blown away.

We laughed and cried our way through our album of photos. They were above and beyond what we hoped for.

A lovely mixture of formal and informal photos which captured our day and our love perfectly.

From our initial contact with Paul to delivery of our album of photos, Paul has been professional, friendly and understanding.

We couldn't have wished for more.

Brilliant!

Paul did an amazing job at capturing our wedding day! He was professional, friendly and positive and we are thrilled with the end result. On our wedding day it chucked it down but you could barely tell from the photos - they look amazing! Paul was also really good at guiding us through the day, making sure we got all the photos we wanted. We also really appreciated how he made time to come with us to our wedding venue beforehand to look around for photo locations. Honestly cannot recommend highly enough - thank you Paul!

A fantastic photographer who really helped on the day

Me and my wife were absolutely over the moon with the service we received from Paul. On our wedding, nothing was too much and he really helped guide us through the whole day which really put us at ease. Professional and friendly with all the guests with a smile on his face the whole day. I would highly recommend Paul for wedding photography without a second thought. The websites are now on a well presented website that makes sharing the moments SO much easier with other friends and family.

Splendid as expected

Paul has essentially become the family photographer having done many of our weddings. As we expected, Paul went above and beyond for us on our special day and is an absolute professional.

We highly recommend Paul!

My husband and I hired Paul to take photos at our wedding ceremony and reception on the 24th of April 2023. Even before the big day, he was very helpful over the phone. He even gave us the address to a bakery that could cater to our needs! He proved also to be very personable and attentive to special requests.

On the day of the ceremony, he was both very warm and professional. Taking posed pictures felt very natural and relaxed and he made the whole experience of our wedding feel that much better.

The photos arrived two weeks after the wedding and were absolutely gorgeous: whether posed or candid, all of them managed to convey the wonderful moments of joy, love, and life of our ceremony and reception. Not only did we receive the pictures in digital format, but we also got the higher definition files on a beautiful USB key, along with some physical prints, in a lovely wooden box.

In a nutshell, if you're looking for the ideal photographer for your wedding, we would recommend Paul in a heartbeat!
