    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!

    Paul Swift Photography's reply:

    Aw Emma, what kind words. Thank you so, so much.

    A perfect review from the most perfect couple. The smiles on your faces, especially when you look towards each other tell so much. It's the smiles, the laughter you have with each other, and then your friends and families. Amazing to see.

    Paul xx

    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.

    Paul Swift Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Jonny, it means a lot to receive such kind words. Both you and Fiona were a dream to be with.

    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.

    Paul Swift Photography's reply:

    Thank you, Heather, that's one heck of an amazing review. Love to you and Stuart 💜💜 Best wishes for the future.

    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

    Paul Swift Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Amanda. This review is totally amazeballs. It was a great day and working with both of you and all of your guests was simply fantastic all day.
    I hope to see you both at a wedding in the future and please, keep me in mind for when/if there is a bump 🤰🏼. It's so great to see the couples I've spent time with grow as a family. 💜❤💜

    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 Swift Photography's reply:

    Lewis, thank you so much for these amazing words. You're very kind.

    Really nice to know that what I do doesn't go unnoticed. For me, making sure you not only get amazing pictures but also have the best day ever is most important.

    Reviews like these are worth so much more to me than any award, thank you so much.

    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 🤍

    Amazing Photos

    Paul did our wedding at The Swan Hotel in the lakes, we had told Paul how we are not ones for posing for photo’s and he took this on board and made the process so easy and enjoyable for us both and we got some amazing photos from the day. Everyone that has seen our photo’s have said how beautiful they were. I also want to say thank you for the help Paul gave on the day by helping the bridesmaids with their flowers amongst other things.
    I would defiantly recommend Paul

    Paul Swift Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Emma. An amazing day for a fantastic couple.

    I hope you feel slightly better at having your picture taken now. It doesn't have to be a choir, just laugh and enjoy.

    Look no further..

    We had Paul as our wedding photographer in October and he was fantastic. At first glance we were drawn to Paul's photos as they had a relaxed look about them and didn't seem 'staged' like others we had seen. From our first meet with Paul we knew he was the photographer for us. He has such a warm and fun personality which put us and our guests at ease throughout the entire day, which showed massively in our photos. He captured each moment perfectly, and our guests are still mentioning him now when we talk about our day. I can not recommend Paul highly enough l, he is worth every penny!

    Paul Swift Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much, Emma. One of the best weddings ever!
    Perfect couple
    Amazing venue
    Picture perfect scenery
    Scrumptious food
    Awesome guests

    I've got too many favourite pictures.

    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!!

    Paul Swift Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Tina. What a fantastic wedding day you had. It was probably the most attended wedding I've ever seen but all of your guests were fantastic all day and night.

    This review is simply out of this world.

    Amazing Photographer ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Paul is an amazing photographer! He’s creative, friendly, well priced & responsive! On our wedding day, Paul took beautiful images of us that we adore and he did the same for our reception. He really captured the emotions of us & our friends & family; photos we will hold dear forever. With Paul as our photographer, we were relaxed in the knowledge that we would get fantastic photographs, and we did! Paul listened to what we wanted & delivered! He also thought of things we wouldn’t have! Overall, he was such a great help to us and we were so relaxed with him too ❤️ photographs are among the few things that last after a wedding, and we are so glad we chose Paul for ours ❤️ Well done Paul!

    Paul Swift Photography's reply:

    Amazing and more!

    From our first meeting with Paul we knew that he would capture our wedding beautifully, however we never would imagined just how perfect those picture memories would be. We were a Covid couple and rearranged our wedding three times. Each time the news hit Paul would be the first person to message us but not to rebook, to simply check if we were ok! Our final date ended up being the 4th November 2020 and this date was picked with 24hrs notice before we went into yet another lockdown. Paul was amazing, he even moved childcare for us! The pictures were more than we ever could of hoped for.

    We used Paul for our pre wedding shoot, wedding and more recently a couple photo shoot. All times we have met with Paul it has been fun filled and easy-going without any fuss. The wedding pictures we had done where amazing and so natural we have lots of pictures to look at and relive the magical day and we can't thank Paul enough for the hard work he did during the day and also after putting sideshows together and also the albums we had chosen from a great selection. Once again, thanks Paul.

    Paul loves to include every part of your family - even the dogs! I have received many wonderful comments about my photos and have the best memories of my wonderful day! In my opinion the finished results were beyond what I expected and the packages he provides are well worth the money.

    Paul is always readily available if you have any queries or comments and he made me feel the no request was too much. He is very supportive, has a good eye and is very professional what more could you want from a photographer!
