We found Paul easy-going and relaxed, all our guests commented on how courteous and polite you were. Paul was able to capture the most beautiful and natural shots. The quality of the colours, the light and shade, and the sensitivity were truly tremendous. Having Paul present from the moment we were getting ready to the moment the music stopped produced a fantastic reportage of the day. Paul’s photos will keep our wedding day alive forever.

Having hired Paul for my wedding I can say with confidence he is a super photographer. Not only are the photos beautiful (they are!!), they also capture the special moments that made the day what it was - great technical skills combined with real emotional connection. Paul is so friendly and personable it is a pleasure to work with him - he genuinely loves what he does, as the results demonstrate. I have seen a lot of Paul's work and would also be very happy to hire him for my business - advertising & communications - if the location supports it!

Paul Just wanted to say how glad we are that we asked you to photograph our Wedding. From start to finish you managed to capture so many brilliant memories of an amazing day without intruding in any way. You have made our friends and family look gorgeous and glamorous, everyone has commented on how stunning the photos are! You have done an amazing job and we can't thank you enough. Now we just have the difficult job of choosing which ones to put in the album.

Paul, Just to say our wedding photos were fantastic - just what we wanted, they really captured the fun of the day and are a wonderful record to cherish. The way they were taken was friendly and non-obtrusive - both our guests and ourselves appreciated not having a 'traditional' photographer bossing everyone around!

Our very grateful thanks.

Paul, We wanted to write and tell you how thrilled we were to receive such an amazing collection of photographs from our wedding. They are everything we could have hoped for and more. Looking through them brought back so many memories all happy and some very funny! Your professional approach helped us feel at ease throughout the day and into the evening. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends and colleagues in the future. We would also like to thank you for the extra hours that you worked; we trust you enjoyed the cake at 11 pm!

Paul and Marie



Wow! Many thanks for the photos. We picked them up a couple of days ago and were really chuffed with them. There are great natural pictures throughout the whole day.

Thank you,

Nick and Sophie


Paul, A Huge Thanks!

We both wanted to say huge thanks for taking the most marvelous and memorable photographs at our wedding. You really brought out the best in us, and all our guests, as well as capturing everything else that was going on. Really felt the more informal style brings out the real people and will help us remember everyone and the day, as the years roll by, we’ve had so many wonderful comments about them, and even passed on your number.

Thank you so much,

Ollie and Anneke


Dear Paul,

So many people have said they are the best wedding photographs they have ever seen..!

Paul, James & I just wanted to thank you again for the photographs and for your hard work on the day. Every single second of the day seems to have been captured. We can't stop looking through the photographs and would love to hang every single one on our wall! So many people have said they are the best wedding photographs they have ever seen. We are both so happy we chose you to capture every moment of our special day. Thank you again.

James and Chloe


Dear Paul,

I wanted to thank you for the fabulous photographs you have done for our wedding. We LOVE them, as do all our friends who look extremely glamorous! Not only did we love the photographs but also both Paul and Jessie were so easy to have around. Paul was by my side a lot of the time and was so calming and encouraging. I was always worried that a photographer would be in the way and invasive but they were so the opposite. I would recommend you to anyone who needs a photographer for weddings or parties, as you are a complete joy.
