“I know everyone will say that their wedding photographer is the best…. but they would be liars! “
Mr and Mrs Robb
I am a very modest person and still learning to take compliments better. Over the years I’ve been proud to get a number of awards for photos I’ve entered into competitions, however, all I’ve ever been interested is that couples enjoy and love their photos; this is what matters to me. I’ve actually been named Hitched wedding photographer of the year for 2022 due to reviews from amazing couples. Reading so many amazing reviews on my Facebook page along with those on Google and some of the directories really does humble me. Amazingly, I am also a finalist in the County Brides Magazine for 2022. Again, this one means a lot to me because it’s voted on by my incredible couples.
Below are a few of the reviews I’ve been lucky to receive. They can either all be seen on my Facebook page, with others on Google reviews with others on Hitched and Bridebook.
I know everyone will say that their wedding photographer is the best…. but they would be liars!
Paul could not have done anything more to make me and Alex feel comfortable throughout our day, even personally taking us down to the Lake in his car. Some of the shots he created for us must of had some kind of magic in them because you wouldn’t have known he was there😂 perfectly candid photos that really captured the feelings we shared all day. It’s not that often we actually take a photo we like, but there isn’t a photo from Paul’s collection that we can fault!
They say the Devil works fast but Paul definitely works faster. Having a slideshow of photos from the day so far during the evening reception was something not only we had never seen before but many of our guests commented on. We had a few amazing photos within 2 days and a sneak peek of 20+ photos within less than a week, date night and all of our photos in less than 2 weeks.😊
Well done my friend I hope you are very successful throughout your career you definitely deserve it!
Top bloke and a very good photographer
What can I say about Paul? He’s just amazing. From the get-go he puts you and all of your guests at ease with his relaxed and artistic style.
He is such a professional and his eye captures the story you are trying to tell. He has you laughing and at times I did think ‘you want me where’ but then I received our pictures, and I was blown away.
He absolutely knows what he is doing but also does it in a way where sometimes you don’t even know he is there! We can’t thank him enough for all he did on our special day, and he has left us with memories that will last a lifetime.
Everyone needs a Paul Swift in their lives!!
Thanks again Paul 😘
Check out these marvellous video reviews.
Where do we start. My wife and I where married at Mitton Hall and had the best day of our lives.
Paul contributed to this significantly with his fantastic judgement of the day, mood, and the guests.
He put everyone at ease, provided calm, humour and a really friendly supportive personality that made booking him 1000% the right choice.
He had his eye on all the details all day to ensure the right pictures were taken and reflective of us as a couple.
He commented on our chemistry and made us feel totally relaxed with the day coming at us.
Neither of us plan on getting married again but if we did (ha-ha) we would ring Paul straight away and ask him to take care of our big day.
Top bloke, top photographer…. thank you ♥️

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 meeting 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 has a brilliant character and had us laughing so much, nothing ever felt forced.
We wanted some photos taken at a spot by the lake that Paul had never actually been before, but by the looks of the photos, you’d think he’d shot there for years.
He captured each moment perfectly, and our guests are still mentioning him now when we talk about our day. I cannot recommend Paul highly enough; he is worth every penny!
We first met Paul over 2 years ago (2019) when I eagerly booked him in for our Wedding (2021). Throughout the past 2 years, he has kept in regular contact with me, answered and reassured me when I’ve been panicking.
When it came to our Wedding Day, Paul made us all feel at ease – not everyone was comfortable getting in front of the camera, but Paul managed to make us all laugh, let our guard down and feel confident.
He was patient with the kids, made the bridesmaids giggle and most importantly gave me and my husband time away to have alone time.
I cannot thank Paul enough for the gorgeous photos he has produced, but also how lovely, friendly, and down to earth he is.
Thanks again Paul
We booked Paul after the family persuaded us that we should have a wedding photographer.
Everyone who knows me knows how I try to avoid photos, so we gave Paul the brief of getting just one good pic. Well, he did that and so much more. Bringing a dark lead for one of our dogs and herding us all like a top-class sheep farmer.
Everyone thought he was an old friend, not someone we’d met just twice online prior to our big day!!!
Alex, I, and our family loved his style, guiding where necessary and just watching us interact capturing our gorgeous dogs too.
If you are considering Paul to capture your special day, get him booked before someone else does, you won’t regret it!!
You truly are the best in the business.
Mr & Mrs Morris
There are a million wedding photographers in the world, but Paul is most definitely one in a million.
My husband and I had a very small and intimate wedding of just ourselves and two witnesses. Paul captured the day with such precision and beauty, the locations Paul has taken us to in the Lake District were like nothing I have ever seen in wedding photos before, they literally could be straight out of a magazine.
As for Paul himself, his relaxed attitude mixed with his dry and witty sense of humour made our emotions show through in our photographs. Paul also made our ‘Date Night Premiere’ video with a perfect song to go with it and believe me, everyone who has watched it, there was not a dry eye between them.
Thank you so much Paul for capturing our perfect day.
We cannot stress how much we recommend Paul to capture your big day.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
It was an absolute pleasure having Paul as our photographer for our wedding day. He worked like a trojan throughout the day!
He managed to ensure we had the perfect balance between having plenty of photos together and spending time with our guests. We’re absolutely delighted with the snaps he took.
More importantly, he’s a lovely bloke. I would not hesitate in recommending Paul.
The idea of a date night was a key part of the initial reason for you choosing you as our photographer. It’s not something we had thought about, but it creates an event after the big event. The video was perfect – an ideal amount of time and very well edited 👍🏻
We are so pleased we secured Paul as our Photographer who was recommended to us by my sister who had already booked him for her wedding next year. After seeing our photos and meeting Paul properly, she is so looking forward to her day and is confident she made the right choice.
He has done us proud and given us some amazing memories captured perfectly that we will cherish and look back on time after time. Due to personal circumstances, our wedding was arranged in 3 weeks, and it was so important to us that we had lovely photos capturing special moments throughout the day. The happiness, fun, laughter, and emotions he caught within the photos remind us of just how special that day was for us every time we view the photos. We couldn’t be happier.
Paul is such a talented and experienced Photographer with some amazing tricks to gain perfect lighting effects which gave us some amazing photos. We would have no hesitation in recommending him, he is a lovely man with a heart of gold and clearly loves what he does, he was fun, made us laugh and feel at ease and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.
Thank you, Paul.
Paul is a brilliant photographer and provided an outstanding service throughout.
Paul photographed our wedding and took a range of beautiful photos. We purchased the ultimate collection, so we got a pre-wedding photoshoot where we met Paul and had a consultation in regard to the timings of the day.
Paul is passionate about photography which shows in the excellent quality photos he shot of us. He has an eye for detail and was flexible and patient with us throughout.
Everyone at our wedding had complimented Paul on his skills and have even enquired about him shooting some events in London which is a credit to his skill.
Paul provided a lovely range of photos of the day at the wedding using a projector for all our guests to view and also made a lovely video for us with his photos which looks fantastic.
Thank you so much, Paul. We are forever grateful for your service and so glad we chose you to shoot our wedding. We look forward to working with you for our future events.
Paul did our wedding at The Swan Hotel in the lakes.
We had told Paul how we are not ones for posing for photos 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 photos have said how beautiful they are.
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 definitely recommend Paul
I just wanted to take the time to thank you and your colleagues for being a big part of our day.
You were all amazing, friendly, and easy to be around. We really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to using the photos that you captured so beautifully for us.
Your advice on the lead up was invaluable and we couldn’t imagine the planning and the day without you!
The service was amazing from start to finish, you kept us informed of any changes and we found the meetings so helpful in forming our vision of what we wanted.
So again, thank you so much!
Working with Paul on our wedding has been a delight from the beginning, with Paul being communicative and helpful.
We also explained about my Wife’s needs, her difficulty with strangers and Paul was able to take her through the day in a way that left her happy.
Would recommend Paul to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!
Right from the start of the day, Paul was brilliant! He kept me and the bridal party calm as we finished getting ready and made us all laugh.
He walked me 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 cannot recommend him highly enough; he will help make your day special and happy.
Thank you so much, Paul.
Paul was our wedding photographer and was fantastic from the outset, making us feel comfortable and reassured about what to expect from the day.
Throughout the day Paul was able to settle any nerves and really couldn’t do enough to help. Made 2 very camera-shy people very comfortable.
Created some sensational pics, massively exceeding our expectations. Couldn’t recommend more highly, an easy 5 stars!
If you need a wedding photographer don’t hesitate to use Paul, you won’t regret it.
Amazing and more!
From our first meeting with Paul, we knew that he would capture our wedding beautifully, however, we never would imagine 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 of 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 have hoped for.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
Where do I even start? I don’t think there are enough words that would do justice to how amazing Paul really is.
From start to finish (including Covid and postponed wedding dates) Paul was there offering help and support. Second to none is his professionalism. So many sweet and personal touches getting to know us and asking all about our vision of the pictures he would take of our day.
You wouldn’t know he’s there in the evening snapping away pictures of your guests.
Paul always replies to all messages regarding the wedding and any help you may need in an efficient way. You’ll never feel ignored or palmed off he takes a real interest in your whole day. Makes sure all questions and things he needs to know are sorted so you won’t have any stress or worries as it gets closer to your big day.
I really couldn’t recommend Paul enough!
If you’re looking for a photographer Paul is honestly your man!
