Welcome To ‘Your Wedding Story’
Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions for your wedding as he or she has the vital job of ensuring that you can relive and share your Wedding Story in intimate detail for many years to come, when the memories have faded. I appreciate that it can also be a bewildering and difficult decision to make for many couples.
Therefore I want to help you make the right decision for you and your wedding. The purpose of this brochure is not only to introduce you to me and my wedding photography services, it is also to help you make an informed decision so that you can be confident that you have chosen the right photographer for you and your wedding, whether that happens to be me or not.
Of course, I do hope that you do choose me, I am passionate about all things wedding and love photographing them, however, it is your special day and the important thing is that you feel confident that you are making the right decision for you and your wedding.
Fun TIME PORTRAITS
“Paul is such a talented photographer. Booking him is one of the best decisions we made for our special day. We instantly felt at ease with him and as people who don’t like getting pictures taken, he made us feel so comfortable. Our photos are amazing, so many beautiful photos of our special day. I’d recommend Paul to anyone planning a wedding, you won’t regret it, and he is an outstanding photographer and lovely man. Thanks Paul.”
“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!”
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 that 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.
‘Your Wedding Story’
Your wedding will be unique in more ways than you think. Your venue on the date, the weather, your chosen styling but the most unique thing is you two, the couple getting married! Many couples tell me choosing their photographer was one of the hardest decisions they had to make. With over 10 years’ experience as a wedding photographer there’s nothing I’ve not experienced, all of which I bring to every wedding with me. Knowing when to step in and take control, lend a helping hand or step back is a developed skill.
My photography style has become known to many of my clients as ‘balanced’. Natural candid photography with just the right amount of family group and portrait photos – a free flowing day with little time away from your guests. Though, if you want to plan an hour away for your couples portraits, awesome.
I’m based in Lancashire and regularly booked all over the North West of England. The Lake District, Liverpool, Manchester, Cheshire and West Yorkshire, though I will travel further.

Your first decision as an engaged couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning.
You have to decide what you value most. Is it the dress? Your photography? The food? The venue?
As a groom AND photographer, I believe that couples should make their photography a top priority. After the big day is over, you will leave your reception with a spouse & your pictures…. that’s it!
All of your planning and preparation is over in a matter of hours!
If you feel that I might be a good fit to tell YOUR wedding story, and you want beautiful and evocative candid imagery
with a touch of WOW…
Then the next step is to confirm whether or not I am a good fit for your wedding.

Meet the team
This has been all about you and your wedding photography (as it should be), however, if you would like to know a little more about me before we meet…
Hi, I’m Paul!
I’ve been happily married for 12 years to my wife Sarah, I’m a father to four boys, two who are both in higher education and two younger boys, along with Eddie and Lenny (Eddie and Lenny are my dogs and office buddies – I often post pics of them on social media of them asleep on the job). I think I am also married to this job;
I love it!
I like and love a lot of things in life, especially weddings. I love couples who laugh, who are not perfectionists, don’t take things too seriously, who just want to enjoy their wedding day. As said, I love my job, it gives me that unique opportunity to re-tell your wedding day through beautiful images – I want you to relive your anticipations, your laughter, your tears everytime you see your wedding photos – ‘Your Wedding Story’.
Away from weddings and family, I like lots of things, Dogs, Rock Music, Fast Cars, Dogs (I know, I already said that one), Marvel films, purple, tech, even wallpapering (I hate painting though).
