Lancashire Wedding Photography

Hi there, I’m Paul, an award-winning  Lancashire wedding photographer who specialises in creating natural fun looking wedding photographs covering the entire Northwest along with the rest of the UK and further.

If, like many people, you don’t feel comfortable in front of camera, you are in the right place. My love of weddings is to capture them naturally, as they happen, so that you can relax and enjoy your day with your guests. Whilst you’re having fun, I’ll create images for you that are authentic, show your personalities, and capture all the special moments that make up your wedding day, so that you can look back and smile at them for years to come.

There’s a lot to see, so have a good look around. If you are looking for a brochure, then it’s all here online, just click the button.

I’m a Lancashire Wedding Photographer regularly booked all over the North West of England. The Lake District, Liverpool, Manchester, Cheshire and West Yorkshire, though I will travel further.
Did you realise when you started your search there would be quite the vast choice and different styles that there is?
Let’s see if I can help you narrow this down a bit… 
  • Do you want to feel relaxed and enjoy your wedding day without spending hours away from your guests?
  • Do you feel awkward in front of the camera so need someone who will help you look amazing and feel natural in front of the camera?
  • Do you want a photographer who will listen to you and what you want from your wedding photos (rather than a photographer who is more concerned with improving their portfolio)?
If this is you and you value a down-to-earth, genuine person who cares more about their couples rather than their portfolio, someone who you will just get along and have fun with then you’re in the right place.
My statement:
I like and love a lot of things in life, especially weddings. 
I love couples who laugh, who are not perfectionistsdon’t take things too seriously, who just want to enjoy their wedding day. 

I love my job, it gives me the unique opportunity to tell your wedding day through beautiful images – so that you can relive your anticipations, your laughter, your tears every time you see your wedding photos – ‘Your Wedding Story’.

Your wedding photography is an investment. All your beautiful wedding day moments are too precious to leave languishing on your hard drive. That’s why I now include at least 25 quality prints of your choice with every package, in addition to your digital photos.
You can, if you choose, complement your beautiful photographs with an album or wall art, or indeed both, from my stunning range.

What can I say about working with Paul? He was fantastic from start to finish! I had struggled to find a photographer I felt comfortable with as neither myself or my husband are keen on photos. Paul made us both feel completely at ease throughout the day. He even managed to calm my husband down during a moment of panic whilst I was getting ready – I didn’t even find out about this until later!!

Paul just ran with the flow throughout the day, ensuring that we got mostly candid pictures of us and the guests and even worked with the Simon from All Star Disco to achieve some very unusual outdoors first dance pictures!

Just as he had packed up to leave Paul noticed the most beautiful moon and grabbed Dave and I for one last photo which we appreciate so much!

Lancashire Wedding Photographer, Paul Swift.

I’ve been serving couples across the UK as a Wedding Photographer since 2009. Mostly North West based; The Lake District, Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Mersyside, Cheshire and Manchester, though not limited.


Lots of my couples have left wonderful messages for me of which I’ve left a few here so you can see what they’re saying.

Hi, Paul was our wedding photographer in May. He was absolutely fantastic on the day. He made everyone feel really relaxed and everyone really enjoyed his company. His attention to detail is amazing and we are absolutely thrilled with the album he has created for us. If I could give him more than 5/5, I would. We had trouble narrowing down the photos for the album as they were all amazing!

Paul, thank you so much for sharing our special day with us and for creating such a perfect keepsake album which we will treasure forever.

Literally aren’t enough words to express how thankful myself and my husband David were to have Paul as our photographer for our wedding.
Due to Covid our original date was postponed, Paul agreed to do our new date and then even moved childcare around when we suddenly had to bring our wedding forward 10 days early due to lockdown 2.0
Not only did he capture our day absolutely perfectly but really helped and reassured us every step of the way.
Paul you are a top bloke and we’re so lucky to have met you! Our photos are beyond stunning and will treasure them for years to come!
We can’t wait to book more shoots in the future next one for our little sausage dog Dexter.

Paul captured our summer wedding beautifully! He was so relaxed and lovely to be around and we are glad he was part of our day. He listened to everything that we wanted (from a picture of our dog to our camera shy daughter!)

Paul’s photography skills and creative flair meant that we got some amazing shots, without taking hours away from our guests.

I couldn’t be happier with the whole process, but especially the end product of a beautiful wedding album. Paul focuses on quality over quantity.

We highly recommend him to anyone!

Wow, Paul has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of our wedding. His emails of useful tips and recommended suppliers has been a big help and also reassurance that I was on the right track with my planning. Paul really made us feel at ease in front of the camera as we definitely aren’t a couple that normally takes pictures. He took the time to get to know us both on a level to make the day comfortable, he made us feel relaxed and nothing was too much trouble. Paul straightened ties on the day, held drinks and even persevered in windy conditions to try and capture our perfect pictures.

Thank you so much, for all your care and hard work it really made our day!

Looking through our wedding pictures again coming up to our anniversary, I am remembering how great Paul was for us on our Wedding day, so I wanted to say a little about how he captured our day beautifully.

I had a few requests for individual shots I wanted, and Paul was amazing to fulfil them all. The style we liked was natural, documentary style photographs and he captured some great candid shots for us! Everything we asked for Paul made an effort to achieve. For example, in discussions we had before the wedding I sent him an example of a picture of children playing on the swing at Broadoaks Country House where we got married, and he managed to spot and take the pretty picture when the opportunity came along, he was very observant and had to be quick to capture things like this, he thought of our needs throughout the day and it shows when we look at our wedding pictures.

Paul has the skill to accommodate different styles, and with enthusiasm! Another example, I didn’t notice this on the day, but in one picture which was taken by a guest, you can see him a little way up a tree getting a good angle of us all whacking the piñata!

When it comes to the typical wedding photographs, like the group pictures, Paul was great at helping arrange and plan this all beforehand. He guided us on how many group shots to take from the experience he has with the time management of this, and took steps to help us have this and other parts of the day planned well to save on such valuable time! Some of my favourite pictures were from the group shots, and in the example below which was the biggest group shot we had decided on, you can see that even all the kids are looking at the camera, which was definitely down to him being inventive in capturing their attention, and is some achievement in my opinion!

The planning we did together beforehand was crucial to the day, and Paul made it all so easy for us. We will always be extremely happy with the beautiful photographs Paul captured for us, and would just like to say a massive thank you!
