2-Day Dream Wedding with Paul

We had the pleasure of having Paul as our wedding photographer for our two-day celebration, and we cannot recommend him highly enough. From the beginning, Paul was a true professional, attending to every detail and ensuring that everything ran smoothly during the events.

One of the aspects that stood out about Paul's service was his ability to keep everyone engaged and having fun throughout the entire process. His warm personality made all of our guests feel comfortable, and he managed to capture the most genuine moments of joy and laughter.

When we received the photographs, we were absolutely blown away by their beauty. Paul's talent for capturing the essence of our love story is evident in every frame, and the photos are nothing short of stunning. These images will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and we will cherish them for years to come.

Paul's dedication to his craft, coupled with his remarkable ability to make everyone feel at ease, made our special day truly unforgettable. We are grateful to have had him as our photographer, and we wholeheartedly recommend Paul to anyone in search of a skilled and attentive wedding photographer.

An absolute dream

From the outset, the one thing I said I wanted most, was a photographer who could “capture decent photos” of our wedding day - after all, that’s what you have left to look back on.

Paul totally surpassed my, our, expectations. With every photograph, you can see the emotion that swept across the day. The laughter, the tears, the love.

Paul himself was great to work with. There was no awkwardness and it was all very relaxed from the moment he arrived.

I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Paul captured everything perfectly - highly, highly recommend!

One of a kind

Hi Paul,
Just wanted to leave this here:

Thank you so much for our beautiful album of breathtaking photos. Never did I imagine my wedding pictures would turn out so good.

You were simply amazing on the day and made me and Tom feel so at ease and had us in stitches! We’re not camera people but you really brought it out of us.

I can’t recommend you enough for your amazing work, kind spirit and great sense of humour.

Thank you for making our day that more special xx

Highly recommended

Paul Swift, our photographer, was amazing from the moment we contacted him. He was relaxed, informative and friendly. I contacted 3 photographers but was never in any doubt who we wanted to book after the initial interaction. We knew exactly what to expect on the wedding day and Paul put us completely at ease. He helped us even when getting ready and it was clear how many times he has been involved in helping brides and bridesmaids with this prep time. Many family and friends commented on how great Paul was at staying in the background but the photos we have received are amazing! Paul us a perfectionist and will give nothing less than 100%. We highly recommend and have been so happy with the results.

Just excellent!

Paul was the absolute best wedding photographer we could have asked for. He not only helped us before the wedding, but on the day he put my photograph hating husband at ease and obtained the most amazing photographs. The date night reveal was an added bonus and made it really special. We cannot recommend him enough!

Beyond Incredible

Paul Smith is incredibly talented and because of him our day was perfect and now we have the perfect memories to last with the amazing photos he captured throughout our day.

From the beginning of the process he made us feel comfortable, eager to get to know how we are as people so he could ensure he captured this throughout our day and wow this paid of as we have the photos that reflect our personality!

From arriving catching bridal preparations, helping with button holes, giving the best wedding day advice and building the best rapport with our guests he captured the best moments and our guests are still talking about it! Thank you for making our day and if I was able to have our day again we would make the same decision over and over again.

THE best photographer

Paul made us feel at ease from our very first meeting which was online due to covid restrictions! We chose to have a pre-wedding/engagement photo shoot so we had an idea what to expect on the day, which Paul made really easy for us from the get go. His relaxed style and witty nature, meant we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. On the big day Paul made sure that he was unobtrusive and got all the shots that we wanted and more. We cried when we had our first viewing of all the pictures! With over 400 beautiful pictures to choose from, we really struggled to pick what we wanted for our album! But when it arrived we were overwhelmed by how beautiful both the album and shots were. We feel extremely lucky to have had Paul as our photographer and would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Amazing day

I booked Paul for our wedding September 2022. I wasn’t really sure where to begin when I was looking for a wedding photographer! But I loved the style of Paul’s photos and found him really easy to communicate with. The packages he offered were really clear and the cost was reasonable for what he was offering. In the lead up to the wedding Paul was on hand to help with any questions we might have and really helped to put us at ease. On the day he blended in with the guests ! We had a good chat and it was actually really nice to have him as part of the day. He gave us all sorts of advice on the day and even advised my sister of the best way to fasten my dress! He made us laugh and feel really comfortable while having our photos taken. I was worried we’d feel awkward but that really wasn’t the case. He even helped some of the guests with tips when taking their own photos. We’ve had so many compliments on the photos and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you Paul!

Best wedding photographer!

We honestly couldn’t be happier that we chose Paul for our wedding photography.
From the moment we first emailed him all the way to after our wedding, he has been so lovely and so helpful. Paul was so helpful in giving us advice and helping us plan the timings of our day and meeting before the wedding helped to relax any worries or nerves that we had.
Paul worked amazingly with our venue and other suppliers (including the videographer) and stepped in to help whenever we needed anything throughout the day, helping it to run so smoothly and take any pressure off of us.
Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and completely captured the whole story of our day so wonderfully. Paul got all the shots we asked for, including a nighttime smoke flare with our whole wedding party, whilst making sure to keep our day nice and relaxed. We had a few sneak photos within a day and then a few more within a few days, followed by a wonderful teaser film, giving us so much excitement to get all of our photos. Our date night film made up of photos throughout or day was a wonderful way of showing our day off and we’ve watched it soooo many times! And then to top it all off by getting our whole album was just amazing! As I said, the wedding photography was the best that I’ve seen and we are so in love with our photos, as are our families. We couldn’t recommend Paul enough to future brides and grooms!

Thank you Paul so being so amazing! We couldn’t have wished for a better photographer for our special day 🤍

Can’t recommend Paul enough

Paul wasn’t only the best photographer we could have asked for, he was a sturdy shoulder to lean on throughout the whole wedding planning period and the day it self. He captured the most amazing shots, all and more than we could have expected, they brought us to tears when viewing the day night premiere! Also with Paul’s years of experience, he has all the answers you are looking for, even non-photography related due to the amount of weddings he’s attended, even to the point he was fitted mine and the groomsman’s pocket square and button holes for us just moments our ceremony.we could recommend Paul highly enough!

Paul… what an amazing photographer and true gent he is!! Nothing is too much trouble for Paul, he is genuinely one of the nicest persons I have met. After our pre wedding shoot we left feeling we had known him years. On our wedding day everyone commented on how well and quickly he worked and how relaxed he was.. we all absolutely loved the evening slideshow he did. Paul captured the day perfectly, and has brought tears to everyone’s eyes who have looked through our gallery. Can’t recommend Paul enough!!

The best wedding photographer ever!

Paul is simply the best and puts you at ease from the moment you meet him. His attention to detail and eye for backdrops is astounding but he makes the whole experience fun and you don't stop laughing. We said we never wanted an album and just wanted digital photos but the minute we saw his work we knew we had to have an album to showcase his amazing photos. Everyone needs a Paul Swift in their lives!! He is the best!!

Terrific Photographer

It was an absolute pleasure having Paul as our photographer for our wedding day. He worked so hard throughout our day!

He managed to ensure we had the perfect balance between having plenty of photos together and spending enough time with our guests. We’re delighted with the snaps he took.

Most importantly, he’s a lovely bloke. I would not hesitate in recommending Paul.

Outstanding Photographer

Right from the start of the day Paul was brilliant! He kept myself and the bridal party calm as we finished getting ready and made us all laugh.
He walked myself and my partner through all stages of the day and helped keep us organised. He was so much fun to be around and we felt very at ease with him. He took some beautiful pictures at different angles and in different spots around our venue and they have come out absolutely stunningly.
We asked him to capture moments, and that is exactly what he has done. There are some amazing photographs of ourselves and our loved ones that just could not be taken staged and Paul has a keen eye for catching those moments and making them magical.

I can not recommend him highly enough, he will help make your day special and happy.

Thank you so much Paul.
